At American K9 Country we take great pride in our unique Doggie Daycare center. Unlike other daycare facilities, American K9 Country encourages socialization and play ALL day with no forced nap times. We want your dog to go home tired after a fun filled day of excitement in our safe, controlled environment. Dogs are continuously monitored under the watchful eyes of excellently trained staff to ensure proper play behaviors. You can take a peak at your pup on one of our three webcams to see for yourself how much pooch is loving their day at American K9 Country’s Doggie Daycare Center.

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.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, Check, Mastercard or Visa
How do you keep the dogs from fighting?
We are VERY strict as to whom we allow into our doggie daycare program. Only dog-friendly dogs that play with “appropriate” manners are allowed to join the American K9 Country Daycare Program. Plus, our doggie daycare is supervised 100% of the time by trainers that understand dog behavior to prevent any altercations even before they happen.
Can I stay and watch my dog in daycare?
Yes, you are welcome to watch interactions through the windows, but we ask that you DO NOT tap or call your dog’s name as this causes undue stress. The best place to watch your pet is on our website via one of our FOUR webcams, which can even be accessed via a mobile device!
Can my dog wear a Flea Collar?
No, we do not allow flea collars to be worn on dogs in doggie daycare. Most flea collars are toxic if ingested. We do not want dogs licking or biting any part of the toxic chemicals on the collar.
Does my dog need an initial consultation before he comes for daycare?
No, your dog’s first day at daycare is his consultation. Dogs adjust to different surroundings very differently. Some may be jolly and ready to play the minute they step foot in the building, while others may require a few hours to acclimate to our facility before being integrated into the daycare program. After your dog’s first day we will let you know if he/she enjoyed daycare and whether we feel he/she will do well in our program.
How log does it normally take to drop my dog off at daycare?
If you have a punchcard, the drop off process is as simple as walking into the building, handing an employee your lead, they will punch your card and you are off to work in less than two minutes.
Can I leave my dog’s leash for someone else to pick him up?
We do not keep leashes here, as they often grow legs and walk away during the course of the day. But if the person picking up does not have a leash of their own, we will be happy to let them borrow one that you can drop off at your dog’s next visit.
Does my dog have to wear a collar?
Dogs must wear a flat buckle collar while in daycare- this is mandatory. No riveted, spiked or jeweled collars will be allowed. Pinch collars, choke chains, nylon slip collars, electronic fence collars, harnesses, bandannas and halti’s need be removed prior to your dog entering daycare- for obvious safety concerns.
I give all my own Vaccines to my dog. Is this sufficient? No, I’m sorry but we require all vaccines to be given by a licensed veterinarian. Written veterinary validation is required for Kennel Cough, Distemper & Rabies.
