At first glance, Hattie’s Doggie Day Care & Boarding may appear to be a typical Cleveland dog kennel that offers pet boarding, dog day care and dog grooming, but a closer look reveals a deeper purpose. Part pet boarding dog kennel and part vocational program, Hattie's Doggie Day Care & Boarding is a social enterprise that teaches people with developmental disabilities valuable job skills.
It's a win-win for everyone involved: People with developmental disabilities learn rewarding job skills and the dogs and puppies are happy because they get love and attention not typically found at an average Cleveland dog kennel.
In fact, employees take care of dogs and puppies with special needs. Blind dogs and canines with disabilities have been dog day care and overnight boarding guests. Hattie's Doggie Day Care & Boarding can provide pet boarding and grooming services for dogs of all needs at the program’s Cleveland dog kennel, as well as at the North Canton and Twinsburg locations.
The ultimate goal of this pet boarding program--what sets it apart from a typical Cleveland dog kennel--is that workers with developmental disabilities use the vocational program as a building block for a career in a dog or animal care-related field.
By boarding your dog at Hattie’s Doggie Day Care & Boarding, you will have the peace of mind of knowing that your dog is in a safe, loving environment, and you will also be inspiring people with developmental disabilities to dream and achieve.
Hattie's Doggie Day Care & Boarding is much more than another Cleveland dog kennel.

Hattie's Doggie Day Care & Boarding provides dog day care, overnight boarding and dog grooming services in Cleveland, Akron and the Northeast Ohio region.
