Lava Dogs 808 - For Dog Lovers in Hawaii

The purpose of this website is to not only share knowledge of what resources are available for our dogs, but to promote responsible dog ownership and bond together to make our island more dog-friendly.  Lucky we live Hawaii...for humans AND canines alike!

The website includes resources such as parks, trails, beaches, overnight boarding, doggie daycare, dog-sitting, training, shelters, vacation rentals, restaurants, stores, traveling with your dog, moving a dog overseas, local and online dog product vendors, dog-related events, where to buy raw meaty bones and other healthy dog food, poisonous plants and food (to dogs), safe landscaping choices for dogs, laws that regulate dogs in Hawaii, and more! I am in constant contact with property owners, managers, and local government officials to get the straight scoop!  Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions for the website. Mahalo for your interest!

PLEASE NOTE: We try our sincere best to keep listings fair and up-to-date and apologize in advance for any unintentional oversight.  Please contact us with any corrections or additional information (including photos), or if you'd like us to visit your business to learn more and take photos.  We put a considerable amount of time and money into this "community service," out of our sheer love for the island and our dogs and receive no compensation except for any ads shown here.  We are happy to promote any legitimate dog-related business.
