Exceptional Care for Them, Peace of Mind For You
K9 Club is devoted to providing a safe and wholesome environment. We have adopted innovative approaches to accomodate the rising expectations of pet owners when choosing care for their pets. We strive to give our pet parent’s peace of mind knowing that their pet is receiving exceptional care. Staff training is paramount and is a part of each employee’s job description. Staff training consists of:
- Canine body language
- Canine small group play
- Canine first aid
- Canine CPR
- Human CPR
- Canine and feline infectious disease management
- Customer service ettiquette
- Emergency preparedness
- Fire safety
- Heat stress
- Hazard communication
Staff training is continuous, providing new learning opportunities and reinforcing things we’ve previously taught. To further ensure that your pet has an unrivaled experience during his / her stay at K9 Club, our facility is staffed 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Our facility is climate-controlled year round and possesses a state-of-the-art ventilation system allowing the air to continually circulate. We understand the impact of subtle changes in lighting and tone can completely transform an atmosphere and enhance a mood, so we have installed dimmable lighting and a stereo system to assist with creating a relaxed and enjoyable environment for your pet’s stay with us.
Mason Company was selected as our kennel provider of choice. With more than 120 years of experience in designing the finest animal enclosures in the world, Mason Company has more experience in animal enclosure design than anyone else in the industry. Most importantly, the kennels K9 Club has selected incorporate safety and disease reducing attributes. You will find Mason products throughout our facility, providing accomodations for dogs, cats, and isolation kennels. We offer window suites and have a variety enclosure sizes that can comfortably provide space for more than one dog.
We’ve “wear tested” a number of beds, leading us to award Kuranda beds as the winner! Kuranda’s orthopedic elevated beds provide relief for a dog’s joints by allowing even distribution of weight so that there are no pressure points such as hips, shoulders or elbows. We can enhance your dog’s bed by adding a thick cozy fleece pad!
Our first floor kennel room, hallway, and small group play areas use resinous-based coating epoxy floor. This is a superior product in that it provides a seamless, sanitary environment with additional attributes of optimal slip resistance and comfort for both the dogs and our staff.
Our 2,000 square-foot outdoor play space is outfitted with K9Grass®. K9Grass® is an artificial grass product manufactured specifically for dogs. Designed with AlphaSa® antimicrobial technology built into the blade, this fosters a clean, safe environment for dogs.

Food and Medication
The only thing you need to bring is your dog’s food (keeping your pet on a consistent diet minimizes upset tummies), along with any needed medication. Food must be in an airtight, waterproof, non-breakable container with your dog’s name written legibly on the outside. All food must be measured per meal serving.
We do have 2 choices of premium house food available if you elect to feed either of our carefully selected choices – Fromm Family or Zignature foods. Both dry kibble and can foods are available in a variety of flavors. Please see our À La Carte Menu for all offerings to further personalize your pet’s stay with us.
