With nearly 2 decades of experience as a hobby breeder, exhibitor, groomer, and trainer, we offer a multitude of pet-related services, including overnight boarding, daycare, one-on-one training, pet grooming, dog-walking, and pet taxi service.   We also offer in-home services.   As a former employee of a large boarding kennel, we understand the stresses that a dog can be placed under while boarding, and we strive to provide the best possible care, whether in your home or at our kennel.

We are a small kennel with just six indoor/outdoor kennel runs, so that we can provide  extra, personalized attention for our special guests.

Our kennel building is heated and air conditioned for maximum Picture2comfort of our guests. Our indoor play area, for inclement days, consists of a large, dedicated interior room with an epoxy-based, flecked floor for easy cleanup and ultimate traction. Our outdoor running yard consists of an entirely chain-linked rolling acre. We also have an outdoor training field complete with doggy tunnels and jumps.  In addition to having unfettered daytime access to the outdoor kennel runs, our guests will receive at least 2 hours of exercise in in our running yard, as well as individual, one-on-one attention.  Your dog will be more than just a number!

I have nearly 2 decadesof experience grooming my own dogs for the show circuit, Picture4including more than a dozen AKC Champions or Grand Champions, multiple top-10 dogs in my breed, and a Westminster invitee.  I will personalize your dog’s grooming to your needs.  Dogs may be dropped off during the day for later pickup, or we can arrange to pick up and drop off, as we offer a pet taxi servPicture1ice at a small additional charge.  Our pet taxi is also available to non-boarding clients who are unable take their dog to the vet or groomer due to illness or busy schedules.  We’ll be happy to take your pet to the vet!  

Our kennel building and grooming area are in close proximity to our residence, all on the same small acreage.  Since our home is located on the same property as our small kennel, your pet will never be left alone!  As an added bonus, should severe weather threaten, your pet will be safely secured in the pet-friendly basement of our home, and since we are on-site, ice storms and blizzards won’t keep us from caring for your pet!  We do accept intact animals for our services.  

We are located near two major interstates and are within a mile of the Quad Cities International Airport, which makes boarding your pet while you travel  easier than ever! 

Our property is nestled on 3+ acres in a semi-rural subdivision with easy access from I-74 and I-80.  Our property is properly zoned and in compliance with local kennel ordinances.  We are appropriately insured through PetSitters Associates.  

I have been a group trainer for a local dog obedience club and am a former Canine Good Citizen evaluator. I have successfully owner-handled more than a dozen dogs to their AKC championships (which has involved many, many grooming sessions!) and have trained and handled several dogs to obedience, rally, and agility titles.
We are still active in the dog show world and therefore require advance reservations, since there will be a select few weekends throughout the year in which we will be showing our dogs away from home.
