“We Speak Dog”
Welcome to Tradewinds Pet Suites, one of Leeward Oahu’s best-kept secrets. Located in sunny Lualualei Valley, we’re a small, family-operated kennel. We offer all oversized, “walk-in” fresh-air kennels, each featuring a cozy indoor area that opens directly into its own 25-foot outdoor run. Guests are free to relax inside or go outside and watch the horses in the arena as they choose. We also offer a huge, fully fenced “puppy play yard.” This spacious, grassy area, complete with mature Palm and Mango trees provides a place where our guests can frolic and enjoy a more natural setting.
Accommodations – Please click here for a downloadable Boarding Agreement
We offer exclusively “over-sized” guestrooms – no crates or cages. Accommodations are available in three sizes – Queen, King and our Super King Suite.
- The Queen Kennel is approximately 30 feet long by 4.5 feet wide and includes an indoor area that is approximately 4.5’ x 3.5’.
- Our King Kennel is 30’ x 6’ and includes an indoor area that is 6’ x 3.5’.
- Our Super King Suite has accommodations for up to two compatible members of the same Ohana. The Super King Suites are 30’ long x 9’ wide and have two separate indoor areas, each 4.5’ x 3.5’. This is the perfect arrangement for dogs who live in the same home and are accustomed to being together.
Our office hours are from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday – Friday. Kennel hours, tours and check-in and check-out times are by appointment. We are closed weekends and holidays, but rest assured that your pet is cared for — a member of our staff comes in twice a day to feed and care for our guests on these days. Check-out time is 10 a.m. to avoid being charged for the check-out day. If you have an emergency, please call our cell phones at 808-206-4576 or 808-228-5842 (Alex).
We encourage you to utilize our “Brown Bag” boarding option and bring your dog’s food with him or her when you check in. We do this for two reasons:
- Any change in diet or environment can be stressful for your pet, so it’s a good idea to keep things as normal as possible. Some pets dislike dietary changes and may decline to eat the new food – no matter how high its quality may be. Also, by keeping your pet on her regular diet, she’s less likely to experience gastric distress and discomfort.
- By providing and pre-bagging your pet’s food, you can save money – we offer $6 per day off our regular “Full Board” price when you opt for “Brown Bag” boarding. To qualify for the discounted “brown bag” rates, pet parents are asked to pre-bag each pet’s meals into ready-to-serve Zip-Lock bags, each marked with the pet’s name.
- Super King Suite (price includes up to two compatible dogs sharing the same kennel)—$85/day
- Cooling Bed – $5/day additional. Please note that if your dog damages a cooling bed, the replacement cost due will be $220.
- Doggie Daycare – $25/day/guest – Queen
Pricing for full-board meal service is available upon request and is dependent on the size of your dog. Monthly rates are available upon request, and in recognition of the sacrifices made by the men and women of the armed forces, we offer a special Military rate when a pet’s parent is deployed.
