Ohana Kennels is a family owned & operated Indoor Dog Daycare and Boarding facility located in Santa Clara, CA.

We opened our doors for business in August 2015 with the hopes of providing a boarding and daycare service that we would feel good about bringing our own dogs to stay at. We wanted to create a place where people could bring their dogs to be pampered and loved just as they would at home, but for a price that is affordable for almost all. We have had the same employees since we opened our doors so we all know our returning customers very well! I operate the business with my son, Daniel, and Heide, a childhood friend, so I know exactly how these employees treat their own pets. We bring in other family members to help when we get busy and during holidays. If you are looking for a facility that is very structured and the employees are "certified", this is not that kind of kennel. As we all know, anyone can get certified off the internet for many things. We are old school and base our skills and knowledge on hands on experience. All of us have had multiple dogs since childhood and my son has also whelped a litter of 10 pups, all healthy and adopted out. Many pups from that litter are existing customers at Ohana! But most importantly, we have had close to 1000 dogs come thru this facility in just 2.5 years. No major injuries, just the normal play-yard wear and tear! No sickness outbreaks. We are very proud of the success we have had here and the number of loyal customers we continue to gain. We understand our facility may not be for everyone. But thanks to our great customers we know it is a facility that many love!
