Welcome to K9 Resort and Spa

At K9 Resort and Spa, our goal is simple: to ensure that your pets are happy and well taken care of. When working with us, you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands. Services we provide include dog training, dog grooming, dog boarding, and more.

Dog Training

We offer dog training for both puppies and adult dogs. From potty training to basic manners training, you can trust in our award-winning program to improve your pet’s behavior. It is important to know your dog will listen to your commands should your dog find itself in a dangerous situation. While some dog owners can train their pets on their own, many find our structured dog training program beneficial.

Dog Grooming 

Keeping your dog clean and well-groomed is essential to its health. Our professional dog groomers make sure to clean every nook and cranny in your dog’s paws and fur to make sure they are as clean as possible. We offer a full range of grooming services for grooming, including baths, haircuts, nail trims, and more. We will evaluate your dog’s condition and recommend grooming services accordingly.

Dog Boarding

Sometimes, we must leave our dogs behind when we are going on a trip. Your destination may be too far, or your lodgings may not allow pets on the premises. Leaving your dog at home alone is out of the question, so you must find reliable accommodations for your pet.

Our dog boarding services at K9 Resort and Spa will help make this decision easier for you. Our pet boarding professionals will ensure your pet has a safe and enjoyable stay. We will follow any specifications regarding your pet’s diet and medications and can be reached at any time if you have any questions or concerns. When taking advantage of our dog boarding services, you can rest assured with the knowledge that your pet is in capable hands.

Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

    I don't know why I've taken so long to write a review, but I've never had such a good experience taking my dog some where! My dog is 65lbs pit mix who can be aggressive towards other animals. Understandably, I'm weary of taking her to places I know will have animals. However, whenever I take her here, they are more than accommodating and understanding of my dogs behavior. They've been respectful, proactive, and gentle with her and I couldn't thank them enough! Their dedication to working so hard

    Ana L.

    Always a great experience for my 5...yes...5 Huskies at a time ! Thank you for always taking care of them !!!

    Josh T.

    I have been taking my 1 year old dog Leah to day care here for a few months about once every week and I could not be any happier. All of the staff members are so sweet and the owners are extremely kind. They make me feel very safe leaving my little girl in their care and I know that Leah has so much fun playing with all her friends here. She comes home completely exhausted which makes me very happy. I love that I can check in on my fur baby online to see her and that I get cute report cards tel
