​Dog Years Training & Boarding Center



Dog Boarding in Shelby

Looking for first class, caring dog boarding in Shelby?  You found it!  Dog Years Training and Boarding Center is different than most dog boarding kennels.

We offer boarding in our small kennel which is located just behind our house.  All dogs receive daily individual attention.  The kennel is equipped with indoor/outdoor runs, Kuranda dog beds, and a fenced exercise yard.  Your dog will be comfortable and happy in our climate controlled kennel, and have 24 hour access to their own outdoor run.

Food is provided, and is the same premium food which we feed our own dogs. If your dog has a special dietary need, please bring that food with you and we will be happy to feed that diet to your dog.


Any medications your dog needs will be administered as prescribed, additional charges apply.

Board your dog at Dog Years Training and Boarding Center and enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your cherished pet will enjoy their vacation as much as you do yours.

Rabies, DHLPP, and Bordetella.  Also, EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2017: All dogs must be vaccinated against Canine Influenza, H2N3 strain.
