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 while providing affordable pet services gives me peace of mind whenever she's in their hands. Will be taking her back for many years to come! Thank you thank you thank you!"

  • "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 telling me about her day.
    I am so grateful that I have found K9 Resort and Spa and could not imagine taking my dog anywhere else."
