Hometown Kennels is owned and operated by Jane & Pete Varey. We have been around animals all of our lives, and love to be able to care for, play with, and spend time with your pets. Jane is a Professional Certified Groomer, and a graduate of Dog Port Academy of Dog Grooming located in Woodstock, On.

About Us:

We are located on Hwy 2, 10km east of Woodstock. We are centrally located to Paris, Drumbo, Princeton, Brantford, and Woodstock and have easy access to the 401 and 403.

We provide short term boarding, long term boarding, doggie daycare services, and grooming services. We have indoor/outdoor kennels when the weather permits doggie doors are left open during the day. The kennels are fully heated in winter months, and have windows for lots of natural light, as well as industrial ceiling fans for air circulation in the warmer weather. All the kennels have a solid privacy wall between each kennel inside, this provides peace, privacy, and cleanliness.

Doggie Day Care services alleviate the stress of boredom and inactivity for your pet. It provides a supervised outlet for exercise, play and socialization. At the end of the day owners can enjoy a relaxed and happy pet. Your pet has regular personalized play time in the fenced in yard supervised by Pete or Jane.

To avoid any accident or injury we do NOT run dogs in groups other than family groups.

Grooming services provide Spa days for your dog, these services make your dog feel and look its best. Spa days can be provided along with your pets kennel stay (please book at the same time as the kennel booking) so they are feeling their best when your pick up your baby.

We look forward to having the opportunity to meet you and your pets.
