Hi all - can't thank you enough for the great reception I got from yesterday's post—welcome back for another! If you're a dog lover like me, then Disneyland has got you covered. Your pampered pooch can stay at the Disneyland Kennel Club:

Disneyland Kennel Club

Back in the 50's, The Kennel Club was sponsored by Ken-L-Ration Pet Food. Here's a shot from 1957:

And finally, a color view from 1962:

I would LOVE to work at the kennel! Get paid to be around dogs/puppies all day? Yes, please! - SPandEvLover  4532.1 #29 9:50AM
You're not alone with this thought! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:01AM
Would you play and ding with them or would you get them all gussied up? I think I would get as many belly rubs in as possible. - Butterlina  1570.6 #105 10:05AM
How about all of the above, Butter? Hehe - SPandEvLover  4532.1 #29 10:06AM
Agreed! - iamdugsmaster  878.7 #208 11:34AM
I always wonder about doing this... My son (age 7) has a therapy/service dog to help him with his autism, but we usually board our shiba inu locally while we stay at the Grand for fear of the crowd overwhelming our furry friend... Any input would be great. Our shiba inu was trained for our son and I'll post some pics of them together soon. (Dog has vest and special tags plus ADA card) - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:05AM
I have no advice on bringing your furry friend, but I can't wait to see pics!!! 😍 - SPandEvLover  4532.1 #29 10:16AM
I've kenneled my babies here before. I don't know if things have changed recently (I don't have them anymore to kennel), but when I did it, I was responsible for coming back to take them out so they could do their thing. It was nice b/c I was able to take a short break and go and play with them. - lotusflow3r  172.3 #2368 10:18AM
Thanks! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:31AM
Does anyone know the policy at the various Disney hotels for service dogs? When we did bring our son's shiba inu, we stayed at the Embassy Suites as they don't charge an animal fee... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:16PM
They're wonderful to my Nana (also my service dog) at the kennels. The hotels also allow service dogs free of charge obviously too. Disney is wonderful at accommodating special animals - WendyLVSNana  90.4 #3742 4:05PM
Lemme know too if you have any other questions. We take my dog with me all the time - WendyLVSNana  90.4 #3742 4:06PM
Thank you for the hotel info, WendyLSVNana! We were not happy at the Embassy Suites and my wife loves the Grand! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 4:11PM
I will have the Ken-L--Ration jingle in my head the rest of the day. - HalfCaff  518.2 #402 10:08AM
I LOVE this post. Thank u. LOVE doggies 😍 - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  951.4 #196 10:17AM
Amazing Pictures...I recall in the 80s that right next to the Kennel was where the Annual Pass office was which I think was attached. You paid for it inside the building and then they would take your picture in there and process the your AP and laminate it there - Dave  13499.2 #2 10:18AM
I think I still have my laminated AP! - Admin  10:34AM
We always kenneled our dog there on every trip in the 60's and 70's and it was top notch. I have fond memories of that Kennel and the wonderful CM's that worked there and took such good care of Sandy while we played at DL. - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 10:26AM
How cool! I have thought about bringing my doggy there! - brguest85  230.1 #1608 8:14PM
Great shots...looks like the guy in the middle of the b/w pic was trying to kennel a horse! - CVDisneyland  411.2 #542 11:24PM
Great pictures! Thank you!!! I would love to work at the Circle D Ranch!!!!! - Boundin  712.2 #272 12:02AM
Great history and pictures! - NellTinkerBell  322.8 #792 12:03AM
