When you can’t be there for your furry friends, let us help — contact us to board your pets in comfort, style, and quality surroundings
We love dogs and have created a paradise for them to stay in while you’re away. We offer 3 separate buildings creating individual spaces for each dog. Every dog has their own door out to their own personal runs.
With the owner living on site, Jim himself makes sure the dogs get out at least 4 times a day to run around and do their business at no extra cost. At Von Vinzant we treat your pet like family.
Jim and Doris started this kennel together in 2004 because of their love for and experience with dogs. Doris was in 4h club, was a dog handler, and taught Kennel management and grooming at Purdy Women’s Prison for 6 years before starting the kennel. Jim has been breeding German Shepherds with his brother since they were 14 and has been caring for dogs ever since. It was always a dream of Doris’ to open her own kennel. They bought the kennel in April of 2004 and after 6 months of remodeling opened Von Vinzant Kennels. They continue to treat every dog that visits as family.
Jim Vinzant is an experienced all european/german shepherd breeder who’s been in the business for over twenty years, and knows how to take great care for dogs. Jim and his wife Doris created a paradise for dogs at Von Vinzant Kennels.
Our dogs are imported directly from exceptional German bloodlines. We strive for great temperaments and superb performance in competition. All our dogs are OFA certified for healthy hips and elbows.
