About us

Located on 3 acres in Southern NH, Truly Balanced Dog Care is owned and managed by the mother and son team of Loree and Dylan Sullivan. With Dylan living on the premises, you can feel safe in the knowledge that your dog will receive care that is both personal and professional.

Truly Balanced Dog Care is an expertly run dog boarding, grooming, and daycare facility that offers luxury indoor/outdoor runs with cots, a climate-controlled building with central heating & air conditioning, and supervised outdoor play in our large, fenced-in yard. There is no extra fee for the administration of medications or for playtime, both are included at no extra cost.

A skilled staff member is always on-site, and because Dylan lives on the property, you can count on supervision throughout the night.

At Truly Balanced Dog Care, we believe in the power of play, but we do not believe in putting large groups of “perfect strangers” out together. Small play groups are only allowed after Dylan and his staff get to know each dog. At Truly Balanced Dog Care, play time is always supervised and playmates are always very carefully chosen.

We are proud of our facility and welcome your visit. However, to avoid any undue stress to our “guests,” we limit the number of visitors at one time and per day. While much of the facility will be visible during your tour, we restrict some areas so as not to interfere with the operation of the kennel. Keep in mind, too, that tours are by appointment only. Thanks for your understanding!

Meet the owner

Dylan Sullivan

Dylan has been training dogs for over 10 years. Working with dogs has been his passion since he was a young boy volunteering at the SPCA. Before purchasing the kennel in Kingston, Dylan had been providing boarding and training for a limited number of clients. Prior to that, he worked as a kennel manager and assistant training director, providing obedience training through both private and group sessions. He has also traveled throughout the country participating in training seminars for owners of dogs with behavioral issues and is well-known for his in-kennel behavior modification. He proudly says that he has never met a dog that he could not help. Also, Dylan has been a veterinary technician since 2013. With his vet tech experience, you can feel safe leaving your dog, even if it will require medical care during its stay.


At Truly Balanced Dog Care, we provide high quality, personalized boarding, daycare and grooming services that you and your dog deserve. We do ask that you please follow the rules listed below. Thank you!

Drop-off/pick-up times

Mon-Sat: 8am-10am / 4pm-6pm
Sun: 4pm-6pm

This will allow our employees to spend more quality time with your dogs as they will no longer be waiting for clients in the office at all hours.

Only one client, with their dog(s), allowed in the office at a time.

This is for everyone’s safety, your dog’s included.

All dogs must be on leashes at drop-off, including inside the office.

Again, for everyone’s safety.

If you have additional questions or would like to discuss your dog’s special needs, please do not hesitate to contact us. 


We believe that every dog deserves reliable, consistent, fair and balanced care. By providing a balanced approach to our clients, we envision dog owners gaining a better understanding of dog behavior and ultimately having a more rewarding experience as a dog owner.
