We relocated to the Triangle in 2004 and searched for a good kennel for our animal family (now 3 cats and 3 dogs). We were so happy to finally happen upon White Oak Country Kennels. The atmosphere, for both cats and dogs, is stress free and we appreciate the personal attention that they receive. Our animals love to go there and come home completely well balanced. We would not use anyone else.

We love White Oak Country Kennels
We use White Oak Country Kennel in Garner. I love it. I think you have to pay a little extra for more outside time but you said you don't care what the cost is, and I always think it is very reasonable compared to others. The family lives right next door. It is a rural setting and I think they can take your dog for a romp or a walk. Our dog always comes home smelling good. It is very clean. They play music. Our bedding is always washed when it is returned at the end of the stay (we bring our dog a blanket from home to sleep on.) I really like that the owners live next door. It is usually booked way early though (quotatation from City-data).
