Alpha K9 Pet Services provides the next best thing to your pet being at home. Long term boarders are provided with FREE playtime daily in our huge Play Park area. Personal play times and plenty of TLC assure your pet's needs for human companionship are met. Indoors, your pet has his or her own kennel with a comfortable blanket and water available all day.

Our years of being in this business have taught us many "real life" facts, especially when caring for our own pets as they grew older. Our very first pet at this location was named "Brown Dog" and he managed to stay around well after he was 10 years old. He joined us when we traveled with a circus. We tried to find an owner, but the manager of the fairgrounds said he had been around for several weeks. When we left he said "Brown Dog" could join the show, so he became a trouper. All the family was very upset when he died and we gave him a burial in the back part of our property. Next came "Wiffi", a
beautiful, tiny white poodle. She came as a little puppy and we groomed her for over three years. Her owners were moving to England and did not want to put her through six months of quarantine before entering the country. "Wiffi" lived to be 16 years old and is buried under the big oak tree on the north property line in front of the office and grooming building. There have been others, large, medium and small. It is one of the "perks", shall we say, of being in the business of caring for pets and owning a kennel. The boarding and care of all geriatric pets is always of great concern to a kennel owner. We understand how
pet owners feel about their old friends. We've been down the same road.
Being away from home is more stressful for older pets; however, if they have been boarded at the same kennel over the years, it is much easier for them when seeing familiar people. Many owners tell us all they have to say is "let's go see Patty", our kennel manager, and they are ready to go. In addition to their age, health problems, blindness and hearing can cause additional stress. Our newly opened Holidog Inn Suites were especially designed with older pets in mind. The suites are located in a building away from the general kennel area. Music and TV viewing is available and human company is in the same building throughout
the day. A visit will convince you it's the place for that "special" senior pal of yours. SPECIAL RATES APPLY depending upon length of stay. If your pet should require emergency care, Dr. Rebecca Hudson, who operated a veterinary clinic with us for several years, is always on 24 hour call. We are also prepared to transport your pet to a facility of your choice should the need arise.
In addition to our dog kennels, we have a separate unit "Garfield's Red Barn Retreat", especially designed for our feline visitors. Cat boarding features "walk in size" roomettes, with a window for an outdoor view and several carpeted shelves. The quiet and solitude is very relaxing and our visitors are not annoyed by barking that occurs in "mixed company" buildings.
