About Us



Meet the


We were dog owners long before we were kennel owners so we understand the concerns associated with leaving your pet in the care of others.  At Eastern Dawn Kennels, we consider it an honour and a privilege to be entrusted to care for your family member.

We are focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction. We have a passion for what we do and believe that this shows in our service.

Our company is based on the belief that the needs of our guest and their owners are of the utmost importance. We are committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.

Located on a beautiful 5 acre country lot, Eastern Dawn Kennels is conveniently located just 25 minutes to Charlottetown – 20 minutes to Wood Island Ferry.

We had our Lucy at the kennel for a few days while my husband and I had a mini vacation, she was treated so well. We were happy to see when we picked her up she seemed to have formed a friendship with the owners and didn’t seem to want to leave their side. I would recommend any to use Eastern Dawn Kennels for their fur baby.

“Very friendly and caring people to take care of your pets while you are away. The place has an excellent outdoor space, and great kennels that have access to outside. They do grooming as well if you want your furry pet all nice for when you pick them up or any day! All this at a fair price! Your pet is being taken care of with the best of care!

Always professional pet care for Dogs. Eastern Dawn Kennels is by far the best on Prince Edward Island. We will not bother with any other “pet care” place on the Island.. Bonnie and Derrick run a fantastic grooming and Dog hostel. I recommend Eastern Dawn to anyone that cares about their pets.

Our Kennels

We live on-site and the kennels are manned from 8am to 6pm daily. We are usually only a bark away if our guests need us.

Large Pens


Play Time

75’X25′ YARD

Walking Trails


Our kennels are manned from 8 am to 6 pm daily; also we live on-site, so we are usually only a bark away if our guests need us.

We offer large (individual) indoor pens, each with unlimited access to a large (individual) sheltered outside run. Our guests get lots of supervised play time in the 75′ x 25′ exercise yard. Weather permitting there is often a ball game or swimming fun! We’ve even been seen having an afternoon picnic with the boss! (For the safety of all our guest, not all dogs can be socialized.)

Our Kennels feature:

  • In-floor heating
  • Air-conditioning
  • Soothing music
  • Surveillance cameras – great for taking a peek throughout the night to make sure everyone is comfy
  • Lots of human interaction complete with play time, ear rubs & belly scratches!
  • Daily walks – We have 5 acres of walking trails and weather permitting we can take our guests for an afternoon stroll (for the safety of your pet, we walk only those that are leash trained)
  • Kennels are disinfected and cleaned prior to guest arrival, cleaned daily, and again on a when-needed basis during the stay
  • We consider administering meds, walks, brushing, bath if necessary, bedtime snacks, treats, tarter busters, kongs, etc all part of caring for your pet and as such do NOT charge extra for those services




Upon request, Kendra will be happy to provide your poochie with a spa day during their stay.  Grooming fees will apply.  Grooming also available by appointment.

We had heard amazing things about Eastern Dawn and were looking for a groomer familiar with Bernese Mountain dogs. They did an amazing job tidying Bailey up while still maintaining the breed “look” Highly recommend to anyone especially berner pawrents.
