Cat and Dog Boarding

Do you ever feel guilty on vacation without your pet? Many dog and cat owners feel anxiety about going on vacation forgetting that their best friend at home, fearing they will miss out on individual attention and care. At Alden's Kennels, our goal is to provide your dog or cat with an enjoyable experience unlike any other: a vacation of their own! For local customers in the area, we offer free pick up and drop off for spa treatments, grooming, vet, and dog daycare services. This is the best time to also have your pet trained.

Our state of the art dog hotels feature newly remodeled cedar styles with a stainless steel doggy door so your pet can travel to an outdoor enclosure with an overhang to protect from the elements. Our pet guests have 50" High Definition TV's playing 24 hours a day at a low soothing volume entertain them and make them feel more comfortable. We use positive reinforcement in our obedience programs to help create a healthy pattern for training.

Voted 2019 Best Kennel in McHenry County!

Cats can also stay with us in luxury, as our Illinois training facility is equipped with tri-level pet hotels that feature room for privacy, feeding, toys and more. Our hotels for cats offer the option for your pet to view their favorite DVD’s or other programs on LCD TV’s located on the outside of the top two floors of each of our cat hotels.

Our professional staff work diligently to ensure your pet will be as comfortable as possible while in our hotels. You can sleep easy, knowing your pet will sleep well too: our floors have radiant heat to help maintain a perfect climate year-round for all our guests.

While your best friend is staying in our pet hotels, we provide many activities to ensure they are not only comfortable but entertained and happy. Our facility is located on the border of Glacial Park Nature Preserve which provides ample outdoor activities for your pet to enjoy during their stay with us. Your dog can enjoy training, playtime, nature walks and more while you are away.

If you want to be sure this is the right place for your pet, you can visit and see our cat and dog boarding facilities and programs in action during our regular business hours. No appointment is necessary.
