Reviews of Our Pet Daycare & Boarding Facility near Gainesville, FL

"Louise is an angel! She took my dogs during hurricane Irma, and treated them as her own. My dogs loved their doggy vacation at Sun Kiva! I highly recommend Sun Kiva to anyone looking for a boarding facility. This pace is great!"

"My friends and I have taken our dogs to Sun Kiva since 2007. I trust Louise with not only my dog but with my foster dogs. The drive from Gainesville is absolutely worth it to ensure my fur babies are taken care of. I happily take my pup there even if it's an extra 25 minute drive because I know my dog will receive the best love and attention while in Louise and her daughter's care. The runs are the largest I've seen and there is a lot of yard space for the dogs to play. Louise genuinely cares about each and every animal. She really does know her customers by name and treats us like family. I've never had an issue and my dogs are always in good health and exhausted from so much playtime. I've tried multiple other places in the area and Sun Kiva is the best quality of care AND the best price in town. Louise is very responsive when I call while my dog is with her and she's happy to update me. I can't thank Sun Kiva enough for all the wonderful care I've received throughout the years."

"Lilah loves Sun-Kiva. Whenever we hit the dirt road, she gets so excited. She loves being there. When she comes home, she sleeps for days. I know she had fun there."

"Louise & family are Amazing; my dogs love going there... Which makes vacation a pleasure.... I do not have to worry about them. Louise is great about responding when you enquire about your pet & will let you know if there is any problems ( such as them not eating )... Thank you Louise & family I can enjoy vacation again!!"

"For years we have using Sun Kiva for our dogs and sometimes cat and no matter how long or short the time is away from our pets, we are always assured they will be taken care of. They even provide a pickup service for an extra fee which is worth it if you have to leave early for a trip. We love Louise and Jessica and appreciate their "animal first, humans second " philosophy. You can't go wrong...Bob and Elizabeth"

"We travel several times a year and for years tried a different place every time for our pomeranian. Tried Sun-Kiva because it was enroute to our destination. It is the only place we have left our dog where it did not come home with some kind of a problem. The fact that it is also one of the least expensive is a bonus. Now we just go the 60 miles out of our way when we have to leave the dog. It's not fancy, but they are good."
★★★★★ - Bill C., Florahome, FL

"Nice place, friendly staff, GREAT PRICES! Would not be able to afford vacation otherwise. Have used them in the past and have found that they are consistent and knowledgeable to the profession. They put me at ease to know that my pets will be well cared for while I am away. Would not even consider using any other kennel."
★★★★★ - Tamara C., White Haven, PA

"Although a bit of a drive for those in Gainesville, Louise and her family at Sun-Kiva make the short drive down the dirt road to the boarding house worth it. Her "animals first, humans second" attitude ensures that your pets will be well-cared for. Rates are reasonable and discounts on pet boarding are offered nearly every month. Our boys are always tired but always happy after their stay at Sun-Kiva."
★★★★★ - Grace H., Washington, DC

"I've got a storm/fireworks sensitive dog and she loves it out there (July 4th is much calmer out in Hawthorne than in Gainesville). She always seemed to dread any other place I would bring her for boarding. She's always excited when they show up to pick her up. Not only the best value in town, but the best care as far as I can tell."
★★★★★ - Eric F., Washington, DC

"A great "spa" for your best friend, while you have to leave for a while. Great care taken."
