"I am fortunate to have found K9 to 5 Boarding Kennels. My two female Shepherds actually look forward to going there when my wife and I leave town. Jennifer loves animals and it certainly shows as you watch her work with the dogs in her care. I totally trust her with my two "girls". The accommodations and care exhibited to all the animals is second to none. The building, individual kennels, and the runs are always clean and fresh looking. I would highly recommend K9 to 5 & Beyond to all my friends and their friends."

"K9 and Beyond gives my husband and I the comfort to know that our dogs will be cared for just as if they were at home. Other kennel experiences we would have to literally pull them in the building but as soon as we pull up into the driveway at K9 they get excited, jump out of the car and run inside. Walking inside you notice right away the clean and homey atmosphere. April, Zoey and Bella would highly recommend K9 and Beyond and so would their Mom and Dad.."

Our mission at K9 to 5 and Beyond Inc. is to provide your dog a home-like atmosphere, with loving, personalized care from owners that reside on site.

When your companion stays with us, he or she will be presented with one of our twelve Kennel spacious suites, complete with bed and mattress. Your friend will also have ample access to our large indoor and outdoor play ares.

To ensure your pet's happiness, you have the option of choosing either the traditional or social method of boarding.

Our facility offers the seasonal comforts of in-floor radiant heat for those cold winter nights, or central air conditioning for those hot summer nights - along with year round air purification.

K9 to 5 and Beyond Inc. is truly an un-kennel experience!
