Welcome to Laughing Dog Kennels!

While you are away, you need to leave your pets with someone you TRUST and there’s no better place than Laughing Dog Kennels, formerly known as Tel-A-Frend Kennels.

All of our services are GUARANTEED to meet your high expectations! Whether your pet is visiting our boarding facility or bath and brush service; you can trust in the knowledge that your pet is getting the absolute best care and only the highest quality standard for your dog. We believe in a stress free environment and security are our priority in all areas.

Our kennel was built over 20 years ago to offer pet owners in Vernon & Coldstream area a safe and loving environment for their pets when they had to be away. We offer a half acre of securely fenced exercise areas to help keep your dog in shape during their stay and an inside run for when it is cold.

We recommend that you bring your dog’s own food to avoid digestive upsets while boarding at Laughing Dog Kennels. If you don’t bring food for your dog, we will feed Purina Pro Plan Chicken and Rice during their stay. If your pet requires medications, these willbe administered free of charge. Please label all medications clearly! There will be an additional charge to board an aggressive dog. If your dog has any potential for aggression, you must arrange a trial overnight stay prior to your desired reservation.  Any additional boarding charges based on aggression will be determined based on the outcome of the trial stay.

Please ask about our bath and brush service. The price will depend on the condition of your dog’s coat, as well as their temperament.

Laughing Dog Kennels reserves the rightto refuse to board a problem dog.
