1. Pet Barracks
Located in El Paso, Texas, Pet Barracks is a 5000 square foot facility. Their website indicates they can accommodate boarding dogs who prefer not to socialize with other dogs. Dogs must, however, be able to be approached by staff for feedings, water, potty breaks, and playtime.
Their facility offers 24 hour video surveillance, a misting system during the summer months, and pool access. We would also like to highlight that all staff is trained and certified in Pet CPR.

3. Howl a Day Inn
Located in El Paso, Texas, Howl a Day Inn offers the option to exercise dogs separately from other dogs, should they show signs of reactivity. They also offer solo playgrounds for dogs that are fearful of other dogs, so they aren’t stuck in a kennel all day.
Owner Melina Garos has been working with dogs for over 16 years and used to train Search and Rescue service dogs for the Red Cross in Germany. She also rescued and rehabilitated feral dogs, teaching them how to behave in a home environment.

4. Canine Domain
Canine Domain is located in El Paso, Texas. They will work to socialize your dog during their stay at the kennel. If they can’t train your dog to enjoy social time, your dog will wear a muzzle that prevents biting but still allows eating and drinking.
Owner Cristy Delgado has a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences and worked as a veterinary technician while volunteering with rescue dogs. She is certified as a dog trainer by the Animal Behavior College.
After realizing that her dogs were reacting because of their fear of other dogs, she founded Canine Domain to offer a safe place where problematic and insecure dogs could learn to socialize.
