Centrally located on 5 acres, We had a vision for AAS von Tente Kennels of a single facility where dogs could exercise, be properly trained, be professionally groomed, and board without anxiety and stress. We wanted a peaceful, park-like setting away from highways, busy intersections, and urban congestion. The result is a clean and beautiful facility where your pets are treated like family. Whatever your needs, AAS von Tente Kennels is here to serve the Southwest Florida community.
