Here at American K9 Country we are open 365 days a year for pick up & drop off of pets. We feel that boarding should be as stress free as possible, that’s why we recommend you bring some of your pet’s favorite items from home to make his suite comforting and familiar. Some of the best items to bring are: his or her favorite treats, chewy toys, a pillow case or blanket that smells like home and any other items you feel your pet will enjoy having in their suite. Chew bones, raw bones & canine puzzle toys are wonderful items that will help your pet feel more at home while you are away. Pet boarding is all inclusive here at AK9C. By this we mean that any medicating and/or special instructions that your pet may require IS included in the standard boarding fee. If you would rather bring your own food we will accommodate ANY and all instructions that you provide. Raw, homemade & homeopathic diets are always welcomed here at Ak9C. Your pet WILL receive the same loving care at our facility as he/she does at home!

How does Ak9C deal with Power Outages?
American K9 Country is fortunate to have a monster of a generator that can power our ENTIRE facility with Heat, A/C, Hot & Cold water & ALL lights required to run our facility as “normal”. We do however loose phone lines off and on, so some credit card processing may be limited. But rest assured, your pets are warm & cozy even when your power is out at home! We are ALWAYS willing to help out when you need a last minute emergency place to board your pet so if our phones are down, just stop by & we will do our best to help out.
During storms & power outages up to the hour updates can be found on our Facebook page.
