Stephen and January Fleming acquired East Concord Canine Retreat in the Fall of 2008 after a search for the perfect dog kennel facility. This property, just south of Buffalo, is exactly what they were looking for: a beautiful countryside hideaway that's just right for your pets.

Prior to taking over ECCR, Steve managed two highly-regarded , large volume animal care facilities located in the southern suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts. During his many years managing these facilities, Steve provided hands-on care and attention to the animals there. Before jumping into animal care, Steve was a paramedic for several years for the city of Boston, MA and also managed the paramedic operations for a large hospital. The combination of his animal care experience and medical training give him a solid background to provide exceptional care to your pets.

Steve and January are also loving pet owners, so they understands that your pet is part of your family and their comfort and well-being is of the utmost importance. Our goal is to provide your pet with a boarding experience like no other — an experience that is safe, comfortable and fun. We give your pets lots of attention, exercise and gentle handling. We want your pet to be happy here and look forward to coming back.

Boarding that doesn't leave your pet bored.
