CEDARCREST Animal Clinic offers top-rated daycare and long-term boarding for dogs of any age.

Shenandoah Valley’s Best Doggy Daycare and Boarding

CEDARCREST Animal Clinic knows your dog would rather spend its day with you. We try to offer the next best thing, starting with lots of attention, affection, and play time. Our kennels are comfortable, climate-controlled, and every dog has access to acres of outdoor landscapes. We believe boarding should be like a vacation, and offer a variety of one-on-one and interactive activities tailored to your dog’s age, lifestyle, size, and personality.
