Dog boarding

It's the kennel dogs ask for by name!

The perfect place for your pet to stay on the Big Island

The Bar-King Dog Kennel, located in Keaau, HI, offers a fantastic place to stay for your pet. Our dog kennels are clean, safe, and comfortable, ensuring your best friend has a fun, relaxing stay away from home. Our dedicated animal caretakers will ensure your pet gets lots of love and attention during its stay. No matter where you're going, the last thing you want is to have to worry about your furry little friend. When you leave your dog with us, you can forget the worry and be assured that your canine is in the best possible hands.

Regular dog runs

All regular dog kennels and runs are designed for easy outdoor access by your pet. This provides your pet with shelter from the sun and weather in Keaau but personal access to open air sections when they feel like it. Our medium runs, 4’x 14’, and large runs, 4’x 18’, provide adequate exercise for most dogs but we will provide additional grassy yard play for a small additional fee. Our fees for this service are:
• $20.00 Per Night for Dogs over 35 Pounds
• $17.00 Per Night for Dogs Less Than 35 Pounds
 If your dog loves action and other dogs, the regular boarding experience will keep him happy!

Ohana and deluxe runs

Our deluxe runs are quieter, more private and offer a larger run experience. For $28 per night, your pet will stay in one of our dog kennels that has 6’x 10’ inside and 4’x 6’outside space. Solid concrete walls separate each kennel and outside play time in the play yards is included.
The Ohana runs offer enough room for a family of pets to stay together.
  • Large Ohana room is 8’x 10’ with an additional 4’x 8’sleeping area, $25 per night
  • Medium Ohana room is 4’x 6’inside and 6’x 10’outside, $23 per night.

VIP treatment

Treat your Very Important Pet to the ultimate boarding experience for just $38 per night. Our 2 large VIP suites have glass block, skylights, central air conditioning, ceramic tile walls and floors, and a play yard with a pool. Each 8' by 10' room comes with its own outside lanai area for your deserving pet. Located in a separate building, the VIP suites are the only rooms allowed access to a special room with a bay window and sliding glass door to a private lanai. This room is specifically designed for dog and cat brothers and sisters to share time together.
