Dog Boarding in Elizabethtown PA

When you’re away from home, you want to ensure your pup is at the best place possible. Playful Pups Retreat is a dog’s fun yet relaxing retreat. When they can’t be with their family, they’ll want to be here. Unlike a traditional dog boarding kennel, our focus is to monitor each guest closely and give them plenty of hugs and attention.

I was looking for a place that provided a lot of extras for our pup. Playful Pups provided many different activities and I really wanted to make sure my dog was comfortable and attended to. Archie is a member of our family and we did not just want him confined to a kennel. The staff was extremely kind even though we were a little bit nervous about Archie’s first-time boarding. He wasn’t really around a lot of dogs and he still not even a year old, so we weren’t sure how his interactions with other dogs would go. The staff was knowledgeable and kind and very reassuring.
