The best dog boarding in McHenry County.

We have served dogs and cats from all walks of life in the McHenry County area; from professional basketball players to doctors and welders. The secret behind our pet boarding success and the beauty of our dog kennels is our desire to treat the animals as we like being treated.

For over 25 years Alden’s Kennels has provided excellent professional pet boarding and training in the McHenry area and throughout Northern Illinois.


Here are some of the features we offer that are popular with pet owners:

  • Dogs get to watch a 50-inch big screen TV.
  • They can come and go as they please through a private entrance (supervised).
  • There is a veranda from which the animals can admire the view.
  • The property is in a country setting near glacial parks.
  • 16 security cameras record the property 24-7.
  • There are 12 acres of land for the animals to enjoy under supervision.
  • The owners live in a home on the property near the kennels.
  • We are open 7 days a week.
    The facility is staffed by award-winning animal trainers and kennel managers.
