How far in advance should I make my reservation?
Crestview Kennel is one of the top boarding kennels in Eastern Massachusetts. If you plan to board your dog with us during holiday periods, or school and summer vacation periods, you should make your reservation at least 6 weeks in advance. During normal non holiday or summer vacation periods, you can make your reservation as little as 1 day before your required dates.

Yes, you will be required to confirm your reservation with a Visa or MasterCard deposit (usually 50% of the total cost).

All cancellations must be received 7 days prior to your onfirmed boarding dates, at which time you will receive a full refund within 5 business days.
Should I bring Food?
Yes, we do not like to change the dogs diet because it usually creates some issues, such as belly ache, diarrhea, and refusal to eat. Although it requires more labor on our part to feed individual meals to all the boarders, we feel it will make your pets stay more enjoyable eating a food they like, and are used too. We do not charge extra for this service.
What if my dog it taking a prescribed medication?
Our staff is well trained to administer medications, either oral, or injectable, and we do not charge for this service. Each medication should be clearly marked in its original packaging, with the prescribed dose clearly displayed on the container.

Here are a few words of praise from our customers:
I am pleased to have this opportunity to commend Crestview Kennels on their excellence in dog care, as well as Nancy and Larry's personal attention to the owners. I have been raising, training and showing dogs for decades but had never boarded any of them - ever. A sudden emergency arose which necessitated placing the dogs - immediately!, in a safe environment. Crestview was local, and I had heard good reports. A panic call on a Sunday afternoon, and several hours later due to the caring of Nancy and Larry, my five Goldens were safely at Crestview. My dogs ranged in age from two to twelve years. They were there for nine days! When my Goldens were able to come home they were to a dog......in great spirits! in perfect condition! and healthy and happy. As a long time and experienced multiple dog owner, there was not one negative to be found! I am Arlee, and many of you know me as a trainer for the Concord Dog Training Club and the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind. You know if I would trust Crestview with my Goldens, it is a trust worthy place for your pets also. My dogs refer to it as Crestview Camp, and much to their delight are going back for a short stay in a week or so.
We have a 1 1/2 year old puppy. We had to kennel her for a week. The kennel was great. Our puppy had a great time even though it rained all week. I even think she came back trained!!!!! Yahoo User. Pros: Great service, great value. Cons: can't think of any
Posted by bakerann on 09/22/2005. Crestview Kennel is by far the best kennel I have ever used. My dog is very happy to be there. The place is clean, friendly, and they seem to provide a lot of attention to the dogs. They give my dog 4 playtimes a day with other dogs, at no extra charge. Pros: supervised playtimes, lots of attention, clean. Overall user rating: Highly Recommended
