About Us

Yorkshire Terrier Getting a Hair Cut- Pet Boarding in Spokane Valley, WA

We Care for Your Pets Like They Were Our Own

We are a locally owned, licensed dog and cat boarding and grooming facility.
We require the following vaccinations to be current and to be given by a Veterinarian. Dogs need to have proof of Rabies, Distemper and Bordatella (kennel cough) vaccinations. Cats need to have proof of Rabies and FVRCP.
At Happy Tails Pet Camp, we have been serving the Spokane, WA metro area since 2005. When we bought Flintlock Kennels in 2005, it had been operating as a commercial kennel since 1978. We had the name of Flintlock Country Kennels, but change the name in 2013 to Happy Tails Pet Camp to better suit us and our facility. Nothing has changed but our name. We have the same ownership and caring staff as always.
With our large grass play yards, our clean, comfortable facilities, and our large indoor runs with heat and air conditioning, your pets are sure to enjoy their stay with us.
