Dog boarding, grooming & daycare services in Twin Falls, Idaho.
Welcome to Twin Falls' newest dog boarding and grooming facility.
Our state of the art facility is designed to be energy efficient, and acoustically dampened, assuring your pet's stay will be comfortable, not just for their physical needs, but for their mental and emotional needs as well. Our devoted and professional staff work hard to ensure every dog has plenty of attention and care, from the moment we greet you, until the moment you take your pets home. We know when you travel, the last thing you want to worry about is the care and comfort of your pets, so let us ease your mind and theirs. Book your pet's next stay today!
What do I bring for my dog?
You don't need to bring anything! We provided everything your dog could need from beds, blankets, toys, and bowls. We do not accept toys and bowls from home as they can easily get mixed into our stock during cleaning. If you'd like, you can certainly bring a bed or blanket that smells like home!
Can I see where my dog will be staying?
We are more than happy to give a walk-through during our less active hours. Tuesday through Thursday from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm are available for guided tours. Call us today to speak with a receptionist about scheduling a convenient time for your tour.
What does my dog do while they're in the kennel?
We strive to build a consistent routine for your dogs while they are with us for their mental, social, and physical health. Our playgroup list is customized every day based around size, temperament and immediate mood. Your dog will make friends (both four and two-legged) and enjoy their company. We also work on some basic obedience and manners behaviors to stimulate your dog's mind and problem solving skills. We aren't home, but we work hard to provide a safe and accommodating environment for your beloved pet.
The gate is always closed. How do I get in?
Highway 30 provides a lot of convenince, but it is still a highway. We installed the automatic gate with safety in mind in the unlikely event a dog managed to get off-lead on the way into or out of the facility. There is a callbox on the left-hand side when you pull up. Press the call button on that box to call the front desk and we'll let you in!
I have been using Dog's Den for a year for my two Shiba Inu's. I have boarded them several times and they have been fantastic. My dogs are happy when I drop them off and happy when I pick them up. I love that I can request an exit wash so they come home all clean and smiling. They have been great with special diets and medication needs during stays. Thanks for taking such great care of my pups!
We had an excellent experience we got the dogs bathed trimmed and they are so beautiful I recommend this place they love animals here.
"Trusting your loved ones in someone else's care can be stressful, thankfully Dog's Den gives pet owners the peace of mind knowing their best friend is safe, secure and well taken care of. With a convenient location, fair price, and great employees."

“Help your new puppy adjust to their new home by setting clear structure and expectation now and not in six months when it’s a habit!”
Adopting a grown dog or a puppy for Christmas can be one of the most exciting Christmas gifts one can give. Read on for some advice to set your family and your new companion up for success!
Whether you brought home a puppy or a rescue, my advice remains the same. If you wouldn’t want your dog to do a behavior in six months, don’t let them do it when you bring them home! Have a family meeting and decide what rules you want in place and enforce them from day one. Your new pup will thank you! Remember, there is no wrong answer here. Find what works for you and your family.
The biggest behavioral offender I’m referencing here is the jumping habit. I know it’s cute when your little puppy jumps up on your lap and wants your attention. Believe me, I know it’s cute. I struggle with restraining myself more than anyone! Just think about whether you’ll want a full-grown version of that behavior in six months! It’s very easy to set boundaries and structure from the beginning, but it’s much more difficult to change behaviors when habits have already been formed.
Anyone who has been out to Dog’s Den has very likely met Fafnir. Fafnir is one of my personal dogs and he is an Irish Wolfhound and Great Dane mix. Like all puppies, he was so cute you could hardly stand it, and like all puppies, he did want to jump up for attention. Even though it was the cutest thing I had ever seen, I had to set the boundary from day one and not give him any attention when he jumped up on me and only give attention when he sat calmly for it. Yes, they can learn that from the day you bring them home.
I knew Fafnir would eventually grow to the huge 140-pound beast he is today, so having that structure from day one set us up for the success we enjoy today. He never jumps. It’s just not in him to do so. He greets people calmly because that’s what we expected from day one. Fafnir greets attention and affection with calm because that’s how he was able to obtain attention and affection when he was a pup.
If you were lucky enough to grow your family with a new canine companion this Christmas, I’m so excited for the journey you are embarking on with your new dog. Help them adjust to their new home by setting clear structure and expectation now and not in six months when it’s a habit!
