Kensington-bred TTs are always welcome to board with us in Stowe. We especially love seeing how the puppies develop and helping with any remedial training issues that can develop.  Short term overnight boarding is $30 per night, while day or longer term boarding (7 or more nights) is $25 per night.

In Stowe, we have a large tiled winter kitchen with an AGA that allows for big group play and five sets of indoor double sized, two story cage banks, as well as a grooming room in the other end of the house and two grooming tables with window views.  The dogs also have three fenced in areas where they enjoy supervised play and feeding, depending upon their age.  We cap occupancy at six animals (including our own).  Mine, is not a traditional ‘kennel’ operation.  The animals live in the house with me and are invited into privilege rooms, like the dining and living rooms, when they’re old enough and can use their manners.  There is a doggie couch and a human couch and they are taught to know the difference.  We often treat our puppies using spoons and forks, as there are times when yogurt and other soft foods are best delivered that way.  Group ‘sits’ start at a young age.  Peer pressure is invaluable in training and it’s wonderful fun to have multiple ages in residence, for all!  Oftentimes, I’m lucky enough to have a doggie au pair in residence, too, to help with the socialization and exercise of the pack.

If you click on the video above, you’ll meet Miss Alice from Taiwan, demonstrating ‘group sit with banana’ with our January 2014 home pack of five animals.  We have other enjoyable videos of our international doggie au pairs with our ‘pack of the moment’.

While we prefer you deliver your Tibetan to Stowe for boarding, we can often arrange to meet you at a mutually convenient alternative location in New Hampshire or Massachusetts to ease travel logistics.

Soon, we hope to announce the establishment of Kensington Kennel, a full service boarding and grooming operation in nearby Hyde Park, Vermont.
