Milwaukee Doggy Daycare, Kennel and Dog Grooming



Happy Paws offers kennels that range from 24 square feet up to 140 square feet. When you kennel your dog with us, they are automatically enrolled in our daycare program. This means that your pup is playing with the other dogs and staff all day long to ensure a good night’s sleep!

What should I bring when I kennel my dog?

  • Collars- All dogs are required to wear collars while in our facility. You may bring them in on their regular harness or gentle leader, but please pack a collar in their belongings. (Collars are also available for purchase at drop off.)
  • Food- All food must be packed in individual bags or airtight containers with your dog's first and last name on them. We do have a refrigerator and freezer for raw or wet food if needed. Please make a note of any special instructions such as adding water or mixing in wet food.
  • Treats/Food Toppers- Feel free to pack as many treats as you'd like! We can add food toppers and treats to meals for more finicky eaters.
  • Kongs or Bones- These will be given at down time or overnight. Please bring in whatever kong filler your pup likes best!
  • Toy(s)- Please limit your pup to one or two toys during their boarding stay. Toys are not permitted in our play areas but can be placed in their kennel with them overnight. Any toy that may pose a choking hazard (rope toys, thin plastic/rubber toys, etc.) will not be handed out. (After a full day of playing with the other pups, toys usually aren't needed!)
  • Bedding- We do not accept beds from home as most are possible choking hazards and are not machine washable. We provide our own cots, mats, and blankets for all boarding dogs, but you may bring a blanket from home or an article of clothing that smells like you to help keep them comfortable!
  • Medication- Please have all medication properly labeled and sorted. If medications need to be given in 1/2 or 1/4 tablets, please have these tablets broken into the proper dosages prior to arriving. **There is a medication administration fee of $5/day per dog.


Please keep in mind that any items sent with your dog may be chewed, torn, or stained during their stay. We do not keep or replace badly damaged items.


  • $43/night for one dog
  • $280 for a 7 night stay with pick up on the 8th day. Includes a complimentary bath the night before they go home! (Fluffy dogs such as doodles and samoyeds, or dogs with matted fur may not be eligible)
