Welcome to Unleashed

Kennel Free Boarding and Day Camp in Renton, WA
Call us at (206) 330-8758

Unleashed provides kennel free boarding and day camp for dogs of all ages, sizes and energy levels. Located on 25 acres of fully fenced woods and fields, dogs spend their day running, playing and napping in the shade. Our team of highly trained staff supervise the dogs around the clock to make sure each and every dog is safe and having a blast at camp.

All of the staff at Unleashed adhere to a positive dog training philosophy. We use positive reinforcement, separation from the group and the tenants of animal learning theory to manage behavior and never use aversive methods such as spray bottles, choke, prong, or shock collars or any other tool to cause pain or intimidation.

At Unleashed, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.

Taking great care of dogs from Renton, Maple Valley, Kent, Covington, Seattle, and surrounding areas.

Learn Who We Are

  • Laurie Cox
    Owner of Unleashed Boarding

    Laurie has been walking dogs off-leash since 2007. She opened the doors to Unleashed Dog Camp in 2012. She built this business on the belief that our customers’ dogs are family members and so we should view them as deserving of respect and loving care. She is a graduate of Seattle School of K9 Studies with a focus on animal learning theory and positive training techniques. Laurie has two dogs, Ripley and Walter. Ripley is a sweet ol’ girl who doesn’t roam with the group anymore, but she still has her favorite old time friends who have been coming to camp for years. Walter is a spicy chiweenie with lots of personality who loves every dog he meets!

  • Reese
    Staff Manager, Animal Enrichment

    Reese is a native to The Rocky Mountains. He has spent the better part of a decade working with wild packs of family dogs in CO, MT, WY, and WA.  He has a college education from the University of Montana with focus on evolutionary theory and social behavior in terrestrial mammals. He is also a skilled mandolin player and toured throughout the Midwest with a band called “The Whiskey Hooves.” He also enjoys the visual arts, travel, language, and photography. His 4-year-old dog Mavis is a big fan of smooth jazz and tropical fish.

  • Davis
    Office Manager, Animal Enrichment

    Davis has worked for Unleashed for three and a half years and this is his very first job. He loves working at Unleashed to connect with the dogs and treat them like they were a part of his own family. He runs the front desk in the morning and knows every single dog that comes in by name. He’s played soccer his entire life and currently attending University of Washington working on a degree in Marine Biology. He also has a dog named Goose, who you may see jumping any fence here because he doesn’t like to be separated from Davis—and nothing can contain his superdog powers.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Each time I drop off my dog for boarding, it doesn’t matter who is there to check her in, she loses her dang doggy mind with joy. It is a wonderful place for longer boarding stays - and I am sure for daycare, too!"
    Julie Bissell
  • "Our dog, Luna, loves going to Unleashed every Thursday for daycare. She loves to run and the 25 acres is perfect for her. She always comes home worn out and happy! The staff is great, as well. They always recognize Luna when I drop her off, and I know they see A LOT of different dogs."
    Mary Hillman
  • "Rogue loves daycare days at Unleashed. He always comes home dirty and tired making him one happy dog. The convenience they provide with pick up and drop off services is top notch. They have also been great about getting us scheduled last minute and easing our mind when having to using boarding services. I would recommend Unleashed Dog Camp to anyone needing a place for their dog to run off some steam during the day or stay for an extended period of time!"
    Ashlee Kays
  • "Our dogs LOVE it here! We hate leaving our dogs behind but when we do, we know the dogs will have an equally great vacation at Unleashed. The property is beautiful and the staff is wonderful."
