At Shertom Kennels we're "dog crazy" and "crazy about dogs."

Located on 13 acres just north of Leander, with plenty of big trees, a creek and pond and large grassy fields just made for running you can offer your dog a vacation filled with fun and country serenity.


After 30 long years of boarding dogs and cats, it is time Tom and Sheryl now look ahead at retirement and closure of the kennels.

We plan to do a series of short durations of closures during the year and only opening up for boarding on the major holidays.

Pets that would be already boarding before our closure dates would remain boarding through the end of their reservations. We will not be kicking any dogs or cats out.

  • Our first closure will be September 9, 2022 and we will reopen November 14, 2022.

  • Next closure will be January 9, 2023 and we will reopen March 1, 2023.

  • Next closure will be September 8, 2023 and we will reopen November 13, 2023.

  • Next closure will be January 8, 2024.

We want to thank everyone for choosing Shertom Kennels for their boarding needs and many of you have been with us since the beginning. We appreciate your continued loyalty and all the many referrals over the years.

We will still continue to provide the same caliber of care and service during this transition time.

A great big thank you to everyone!

EFFECTIVELY IMMEDIATELY: Shertom Kennels no longer requires the Bordetella vaccine but is still highly recommended to vaccinate your dog.

NOTE ON BORDETELLA: When getting the Bordetella for your dog, please vaccinate your pet at least 2 weeks or more prior to your dog arriving at the kennel unless your vet uses a killed Bordetella virus. If the killed virus is used, the waiting period would be 5 days or 72 hours to build up titer levels before bringing your dog into the kennel. The live virus can shed out to the other dogs in the kennel and your dog and the kennel dogs can be susceptible to kennel cough.

Please bring or send proof of vaccination.
