Our Ledgebrook Kennel is a daycare and overnight boarding facility for cats and dogs in Woburn where our team will provide your pet with a comfortable and enjoyable place to stay while you are away.
A Home Away From Home
We understand that it can be stressful to leave your pet when you go out of town—especially if they are ill, or when they are recovering from a procedure or surgery. At Woburn Animal Hospital, we want to help put your mind at ease.
We provide complete general boarding services for all of our patients, and medical boarding services for pets with conditions standard boarding centers may not be equipped to accommodate.
Boarding: A Typical Day
Whenever possible, dogs are placed in our spacious, heated indoor/outdoor runs. If housed indoors, they are walked or placed into outdoor runs for exercise during the day.
Runs are cleaned and disinfected each morning and maintained throughout the day.
Ledgebrook Kennel offers Playtime, where our guests can run free and play in our large enclosed paddocks. For shy or “independent” dogs, playtime can be individual. For more social dogs, they can participate in community playtime with friendly dogs to burn off energy, while being supervised by our staff.
Our two-story, four-unit cat condos are fully equipped with toys, bedding, catnip, and sunshine from the windows that surround them. All indoor facilities are cleaned two or more times a day.
Your cat will be fed according to your specifications and their requirements, to ensure their routine is the same as it is at home. They will be given one-on-one interaction with staff if they want it.
Our cat boarding area is separated from the dog area to ensure your kitty feels relaxed and safe while they stay with us.
Ledgebrook Kennel is located on five acres of beautiful wooded land and dogs are divided into groups of six to eight, split first by size, then by play style and age. The dogs spend the day running and playing outside with our Daycare Supervisors.
Walk-ins are always welcome for Doggie Play Day once a play day assessment has been done.
Your pet will be supervised by our expert veterinarians and nurses, who will administer medications and watch over them closely. Any required medications will be administered to your pet on the same schedule they are used to at home.
At the discretion of the attending veterinarian, any pet with a medical condition will be boarded in the hospital.

- How much does pet boarding cost?
Pet boarding fees vary based on the duration of the stay, the size of the pet, and special medical requirements. That said, our pricing is affordable and competitive, and we welcome you to contact us for a quote.
- What time should I drop off and pick up my pet?
Our drop-off and pickup schedule is as follows:
Monday to Friday: 7am-9am & 4pm-5pm
Saturday and Sunday: 9am-10am & 4pm-5pm
Reservations must be made in advance, especially for holidays and summer weekends. During these times, we recommend that you call 2-3 weeks in advance to increase the chance that a spot will be available.
- What should I pack for my pet?
Food: We provide food for pets staying with us. However, please feel free to bring enough of your pet's regular food to last the duration of the stay.
Medication: If your pet takes any medication, bring it along for our staff to administer.
Toys: If your pet has a special toy or two, bring them along, as long as they are safe.
For sanitary reasons, we ask that you do not bring your pet’s personal bedding for boarding.
- What if my pet needs to take medication?
We will be glad to administer your pet's medications while they are with us.
- Can I get updates about my pet during their stay?
Yes, feel free to call us during your pet's stay for updates.
In the event your pet needs emergency care, we will make every effort to contact you for authorization. Therefore, an emergency contact number must be left while your pet is boarding.
For minor treatment, authorization may not be obtained. Because of the full veterinary facilities on the premises, your pet will receive immediate care if requested or required.
- How should I prepare for my pet's stay?
Start by filling out our Boarding registration and Playtime Waiver forms.
Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.
Step 1: Contact us to get started
Call us to book, and to discuss details about your pet and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to coordinate your booking.
Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered dogs. Dogs must be up to date with distemper, rabies, influenza, and kennel cough vaccines and free of parasites to stay at our facility. Ledgebrook Kennel requires the kennel cough vaccine and fecal exam every six months. Cats must be up to date on their rabies and distemper vaccinations. If your pet is not current on any or all vaccines, we can easily complete them right here during the stay.
Step 2: Book a Doggie Play Day
We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. Your dog’s first visit to Doggie Daycare will be an assessment day at no charge to you. This meet-and-greet session allows us to confirm that your dog is a good match for our program. It’s a highly effective way to minimize boarding anxiety.
Step 3: Set your pet up for success
On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.
Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful and confident during the separation.
- What do you feed animals that don't have their own food?
For pets that are not on a special diet, we can provide high-quality pet food that is appropriate for the size and breed of your pet. An additional fee may apply.
