Stone House Dogs

Premium dog boarding in the Hudson Valley

We are Kate and Mark

I am a New Yorker and my husband Mark is originally from London. We started boarding dogs in our London home over 15 years ago and now we are offering our premium personal dog boarding service in the Hudson Valley.

We offer a safe, healthy and loving environment for dogs from New York City and beyond. All our guest dogs become full members of the pack and are treated as part of our extended family.

Our property is 10 acres of paddock and stream, 80 miles from Manhattan and just 15 minutes from the NY Thruway. Transport to and from the city is available at a nominal charge.

All guest dogs live with us and are given full run of our house. At night the pack all sleep together on their beds in our large farmhouse kitchen equipped with under floor heating. During the day, play time activity is provided every 2 hours, always monitored by either Kate or Mark.

New guests are encouraged to visit with their owners for a ‘meet and greet’ so as to make sure that it will be a good fit for all.

Could easily be mistaken for a Park Avenue puff ball but don’t judge a pooch by his puff. Take note of his name.
