Nino and his staff have done a wonderful job with our German Shepherd Dog. She is very high spirited and was a real handful for us, but after two months at K9 she was a new dog! Two years later she is wonderful and a treasure. We always board her at K9 and she is always excited to come.

The staff is always welcoming and personable, very easy to deal with. We are so happy to have this great facility in our community.

I have been using K9 Academy International, LLC for approximately the last eight years. I originally went to them for puppy obedience training, and then found out about their boarding services. I hate not to include my animals on our vacation, but there is a strict no animal policy. I love the fact that K9 Academy has ample playroom & wading pools when it is hot!! I have been extremely happy and satisfied with their services (like I said 8 years of repeat boarding). Great staff, friendly, VERY CLEAN and smells good when you walk through the doors. Looking for a place to keep your baby for a day or week look no further!

Well, it is a year later. We took Mac to K9 Academy this past July and I am back again for his winter Christmas visit. We refer to Mac's visits as "Puppy Camp"! Thank you Nino and staff for taking care of our baby.
