Yosemite K9 Kennels were a lifesaver! We had been looking for months for someone to watch our dog for the day while we hiked in Yosemite and we found them about a week before our trip. Kylie was very good with communication and responding in a timely manner. Robbie greeted us when we arrived and showed us the facility. They have a good sized fenced in area that my dog enjoyed running around in, and a 4x4 kennel area that she relaxed in. Kylie took her on multiple walks during the day and sent me pictures! They reassured us that our dog would be safe and that helped give me peace of mind while I enjoyed my hike. Super nice people, definitely would recommend using them! Your dog will have an awesome day!

How Did We Do?
Your pet adventure starts here
We are pet lovers who live in the perfect place to entertain your K9 while you're out enjoying Yosemite. The adventure starts on the way to our home where the kennels are. You’ll travel 2 miles on a gravel dirt road, which is one of the old stagecoach roads into Yosemite Valley. You'll then arrive at our historic homestead, The Flying Spur. I'm fortunate to be the 4th generation to live here only 30 minutes from Yosemite Valley. Living here the past 13 years I've enjoyed the infinite ways of adventuring from rock climbing, backpacking, to hiking and swimming. Through the years, I've seen the need for a safe and fun option for pets. Being dog owners and lovers ourselves, we feel for those who end up here with their pets not realizing the limited places they can go. With years of experience, I'm happy to offer trip advice for your time here as well. It's a large park and can be confusing!
At Yosemite K9 Kennels, our goal is to give you peace of mind to enjoy Yosemite, while your K9 has their own adventure. Our property is adjacent to the Stanislaus National Foresta, where we give each K9 an adventure walk if you choose. Take a look at our site and get in touch with questions or concerns.
We thank you in advance for allowing our family be part of your Yosemite experience.
