Boarding Services

Y-Farms Kennels is located in Zachary, Louisiana. Our kennel is situated on our rural farm in Northern East Baton Rouge Parish. Our facility is not a typical “boarding kennel.” We provide safe, clean, healthy, and comfortable overnight accommodations for all dog breeds. 

Dogs that board with us have indoor rest and sleeping areas. Each dog will have frequent outdoor potty breaks & playtime in our 6 foot commercial fenced dog play yards and patio. Our kennel has a 1500 sq foot indoor building with a kitchenette/laundry & TV room. We have Central Air Conditioning for your dog's comfort.

At our facility, we have 5 large play yards with mature willow trees, sun sails, & permanent outdoor coverings installed with fans to help keep your pup comfortable. Each yard is surrounded with 6-foot commercial chain-link fencing. We also have large and small doggy splash pools, doggy approved playground equipment and grassy areas for romping around. Our kennel has a fun puppy patio complete with bone shaped splash pool, fans, misters & comfy outdoor furniture for dogs of all sizes. Your dog will enjoy having secure outdoor free/play time. We offer playtime with small groups of dogs of similar size & temperament. We have a lot of activities that are available for your pet at no extra charge.

Whether you are going on a long vacation or are going to be gone for just a few days, you can be confident that your dog is being well cared for.

For small breed & toy dogs, your little dog will have play sessions with other small dogs of similar size indoors and on our outdoor patio area. 

For non-social & elderly dogs,  don't avoid traveling because you can't find a place that will care for elderly dogs' needs.  You can put your mind at ease as we are equipped to handle a "special needs dog". We will make sure that your dog will receive the extra attention that he needs in order to feel at home while staying with us.

SAFETY: Our facility has a Lorex 12 camera surveillance system, with monitors for in house viewing. These cameras help us to keep an extra eye on the dogs while they are at the kennel and out on the dog yards. We also have installed a "AnimAlarm" alarm system that monitors and notifies us of any extreme temperature changes in our kennel. In the event of a hazard, the indoor kennel is also equipped with a "NEST" (carbon monoxide/smoke detector), which sends us alerts while we are not inside the kennel.  Our farm has boundary fencing & an automatic gate at the front of our farm to help keep your dog safe and secure while at our farm.

Our fun facility includes exercise, playtime, & fresh air.

This is an opportunity to help build your dogs socialization skills, but most importantly your dog will burn off lots of pent-up energy!
