Penny — Dog Boarding in Ferndale, WA
My name is Penny. I am a very old girl, and I can't hear anymore. Grandma Bowzer has a very nice soft bed and blanket in her house where I sleep and where I dream. She saves this space just for these tired old bones of mine. Grandma loves me so much."
Baxter — Dog Boarding in Ferndale, WA
It's true! Part of the Kennel assistant's job is to take naps on the couch with special clients like Baxter!
Ranger — Dog Boarding in Ferndale, WA
I'm Ranger and yes I do look like some of Grandma's and Grandpa's Bowzer's Buddies. I was born at Bowzer's January 2004, and now I live in Mt. Vernon with my wonderful people Elenor and Tim. They went on vacation and I got to have tons of fun visiting with Grandma & Grandpa."

I don't want a bath!"
Anny — Dog Boarding in Ferndale, WA
Beautiful Anny gets a new home! Our beautiful girl has had such a difficult time in her first two years of life. She was given away and knocked about, wounded and given away yet again, and again, until through much hardship she made her way to us. After interviewing several potential adoptive parents, she has been placed in her new home with Don and Della. Since then Don has called to say how happy they are with their new girl and how much they love her. We just want to say a heartfelt thank you to Don and Della for being such wonderful people and for their gift of love and devotion to our beautiful Anny.
We also want to thank all the other applicants who took time and made the effort to to open their hearts to Anny. We truly hope you all find that special furry soul mate.
Thank you

Thank you for expressing your interest in Bowzer's B & B Kennels! It is our goal to make your dog as comfortable and as happy as possible while you are away. Our kennels are individual canine condos that are heated in the winter and cooled in the summer. Each unit is individual and surrounded with fresh air. Your pet will enjoy 4 play times a day.


We do not accept credit cards or checks. U.S. currency cash only.
  • 1 dog per kennel $19.00
  • 2 dogs per kennel $28.00
  • 3 dogs per kennel $40.00

Dog Food:

We ask that you bring your own dog food with instructions on how much to feed your dog. Please do not change your dogs diet in anyway to avoid an upset tummy. For your convenience you can use our dog food for an added fee:
Iam's Dog Food fee of 50 cents per 1/2 cup with a minimum of 1/2 cup per day.
Example: 1 cup twice per day would cost $2.00
1/4 cup small bites twice a day would cost 50 cents.
1.5 cups twice a day would cost $3.00 etc.


We try to be as flexible as possible with our check in and check out times. These are by reservation only, as early as 8:00am and as late as 5:15PM. We ask that you make a reservation time you will be checking in and checking out, and we ask that you call us at least 1/2 hour before arriving for check in and for check out. This gives us time to make sure all the other boarders and our dogs are put away. This way we won't have to leave you standing on the front porch or sitting in your car while we attend to the dogs.


We understand that there are times when flights are canceled, business meetings are extended, or other unforeseen circumstances pop up. Please call us and we will do everything we can to assist you in caring for your beloved pet. However... Please do not leave us hanging here wondering what happened to you. Because we are such a small kennel, we are booked much of the time. If your dog is still here beyond his, or her check out date and their kennel is already booked for another dog then your dog has to stay in the house with us. This usually makes your pet very happy. Just remember that inside lodging is twice the rate as the canine condos and is not typical. If we have openings in the canine condos you will be charged the normal rate. Please know that if you are late and do not call us there will be a $50.00 daily late fee added to your bill.


All dogs must have updated vaccinations including a Bordatella vaccination, and all dogs must be treated for fleas before entering the kennel compound. Flea collars are not considered flea treatment. Please use advantage, frontline, program, or other Vet recommended flea treatments. Please note that most Vets administer the Bordatella vaccine once a year. Our kennels require it every 6 months. Bordetella is not among your normal vaccinations. You must request this vaccine from your Vet. If your dog has not been vaccinated in the previous 6 months with the Bordatella Vaccine then it must be administered a minimum of 7 days before your dog enters our kennel compound. Also please be aware that the vaccine does not always protect your dog. You should speak to your vet about this. For those of you that are not familiar with Bordetella ( Kennel Cough) It is like a very bad bronchial virus that causes severe coughing and congestion which is generally treated with antibiotics and cough syrup, and can take 10 to 20 days to clear up.
