Special Needs Boarding

Is Special Needs Boarding the right choice for my dog?


A Special Needs Boarding pet may stay behind the Reception desk for additional care that they may need. They are monitored continuously by our staff when boarding behind our Reception desk.

 Our caring team at Bear Brook Kennel recognizes that some pets require extra time, love, socialization, and familiarity with their health issues so we can appropriately address their physical, emotional, and medical needs while they board with us. For this reason, we offer Special Needs Boarding for an additional $5.00 per day.

Our Special Needs Boarding is a comprehensive program that is specifically tailored to boarding pets with the following conditions or symptoms:

  •  Senior pets
  • Chronic illness (asthma, kidney failure, heart disease)
  • Requiring mobility assistance (arthritis, hind end weakness, paralysis)
  • Incontinence
  • Unique dietary requirements
  • Anxiety

A Special Needs Boarding pet may stay behind the Reception desk for the additional care they need and are monitored throughout the day by our devoted staff. Bear Brook Kennel strives to give your pet love and attention in a safe, supportive environment so you will feel comfortable being away for a few days.

We are only able to accommodate one dog at a time behind the desk for Special Needs Boarding. If this is something you would like for your dog, please call as soon as you know your plans so we can see if we have availability.
