About Us – Pet Holiday

About Us

Hello and thank you for showing interest in our services!

My name is Roel Rodriguez (Rod). My wife Mari and I own and operate Pet Holiday, a licensed pet care facility in Yokosuka. Before building the business, we bought a dog at Shimachu Home’s and named her Tara. I made a hobby kennel in the backyard of our home in Sanomachi for training and quality of life for her. We found a family owned pet hotel and became close to them. We would help them with their business at times, and with their grace, we decided to start our venture. In the beginning, our friends would ask us to care for their pets when they were away, and they returned the favor to us. The word spread about what we had to offer and eventually we acquired our first client.

Before long, we earned a Japan Pet Care Association license and started Pet Holiday. As we began boarding a variety of different pets, I continuously remodeled the hobby kennel to meet our guests' needs. After a few years, I gathered our profits, along with my life savings, and relocated the business. With help from local contractors, we built a commercial kennel using shipping containers. Pet Holiday represents years of experiments and experience resulting in innovations such as double door access to private rooms, heated flooring, camera surveillance, dig/ jump proof perimeter fencing, and more.

Our mission is to provide a safe, clean and fun environment full of amenities and activities to satisfy any pet. We have dedicated our efforts to providing SOFA members, and the local community in Yokosuka with a boarding facility that accepts any pet, without permanent cages, without a selection process, with reasonable rates, and without culture barriers. We have never turned a pet away for any reason other than capacity. We work on a flexible schedule for your convenience, and we consult with other professionals in the local area for grooming, training and 24-hour veterinary services.

Pet Holiday is located in Nagasaka near Sekiguchi Farm and Myoshirushi Temple; Google Maps marks the location. The facility consists of comfortable private accommodations and 2 large dog runs. We live on site as an added security measure so that we can give personal attention and care to our guests. Parking is available on our road.

We strive to be the best pet care facility in town, ensuring that you return from travel to well taken care of pets. Please contact us today to schedule a free assessment. We look forward to meeting you all!
