Dog Boarding Suites
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.

We offer “over-sized” guestrooms with private runs—available in three sizes: Queen, King, and our Super King Suite. We also have air-conditioned “Petites Suites” for our smaller guests.
- NEW! Air-conditioned Petite Suites for guests weighing 25 pounds or less.
- The Queen Kennel is approximately 30′ x 4.5′ 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’ x 9’ 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.
NOTE: If you will not be able to arrive at the scheduled time, please let us know in advance to re-schedule. Saturday check-ins/outs are at 9 AM ONLY; Sunday checkins/outs are at 9 AM or 4 PM ONLY. Weekdays check out by 10 AM to avoid boarding charges for that day. We have a 3-day minimum stay. During November and December, the minimum stay is one week.
If you have an emergency, please call our cell phones at (808) 206-4576 or 808-228-5842 (Alex).

It’s no secret that abandoned, lost and otherwise homeless dogs here in Hawaii have a miserable existence—and then they die.
