Check us out on Yelp!
We have lovely reviews from people who love their animals.
There isn't any other pet hotel, dog kennel or pet boarding like Moon Dogs. We are close to Studio City, Sherman Oaks and convenient freeway access from most areas in Los Angeles.
We have apricot,
pomegranate, Meyer lemon, orange and grapefruit trees that are over 50
years old. The air smells like sweet orange blossoms and the trees keep the yard cool..
Moon Dogs Farm has a secure 6 foot fence around our entire farm.
Your dog will stay on a 20,000 square foot pet hotel that was once an original orchard from the early 1900's.
We try to stick with natural pest control and use mostly all organic means of farming and fertilizing.
We do not use Roundup.
We start boarding at $40 a day for small dogs and $55 (total) a day for two small dogs.
We want our customers to tell their friends how awesome we are.
From Encino to the deep wilds of Laurel Canyon, Moon Dogs has a large area of service. We have two huge farm lots to play and run in, and lots of room to roam outside under shady trees.
After rescuing my dog Gracie under a car, I
needed a pet sitter. It was hard to find a place for boarding at a
reasonable price where she could play outside and not have to deal with a
loud and scary kennel.
The kennels at the big box pet stores I checked out for boarding wanted to charge extra to
play with her and I didn't want her to be kept in a cage for 23 hours
with one hour of play time and a 15 minute walk.
was used to running free at Moon Dogs Farm; where we have an organic garden
and many mature fruit trees. I wanted to create an affordable place for dogs that
was like the country, but had the convenience of being 20 minutes from
Santa Monica and near Ventura Blvd.
Moon Dogs also works with strays and rescue animals and offers discounts to owners with verified fosters/rescues.
Your dog will play outside all morning, laze about in the sun or find a shady spot under a tree.
They all love to help garden and watch me pull weeds.
late night games of fetch before bed are a must for a good night's sleep.
It's a lot like camp!
Your dogs will be in a home environment
all of the time & since we don't take a lot of dogs at once; they have lots of quality petting & playing time.
Some pets do better in a quiet home atmosphere rather then being with a lot of strange dogs at kennel.
They can sleep in their bed, in their
crate or behind a comfy chair. Or the sofa. Everyone likes the sofa. The A/C is always on inside and they are kept inside during the hottest times of the day and always sleep inside at night.
We want you to come back every time you need a pet sitter, weekly dog walker or boarding services.
We want you to recommend us to your friends.
Moon Dogs Farm is in the heart of the historic area in Van Nuys.
We're very close to the 405 & Sherman Way.
After running in the yard, most dogs get tired here after dinner. They get a good night's sleep at Moon Dogs.
Private list of long time client references will be provided upon request.
We try to run an
organic ship; we don't use pesticides or herbicides (sometimes we have
to, like once a year, but really try not to) on the grass so we do have weeds & prickers sometimes; but that's life on an urban farm..
It's hard enough to
be away from your pets when you are traveling or working for long
periods of time, so we want to make this as easy and comfortable as possible for you and your dog.

Is Moon Dogs Ridiculously Expensive?
Moon Dogs prices are very reasonable.
How reasonable? Well, considering big box pet supply stores quoted me $45 a day and keep the dog in a cage for 23 hours, I think we offer a great bargain.
We are way, way lower than anyone else out there and we only board a few dogs at a time.
We have better rates than a vet and the big box pet stores and your dog gets to play inside & outside all day- and all evening with very few dogs around It's a special experience. .
