From The Owner

     The Pet Shack Resort opened its doors the week of Thanksgiving in 1998.  It had originally been a kennel, but its facilities and reputation had become run down over the years after the previous owners divorce.​

     In 1998, I had also divorced and was looking for a way to support myself.​  I had always had multiple pets, including dogs, cats, horses, birds and an assortment of small mammals.  For me, this was the perfect solution!  I could do what I loved and support myself as well.

Our facility has 15 huge runs as well as 3 indoor play areas and 14 outdoor play areas.   Much time and energy is spent making our guests stay safe, comfortable and happy!

All calls and text messages to 937-885-7171 go to the kennel phone and my cell.  We do our best to get back with you quickly both day and night.  Your furry family member is of utmost importance to us!  We appreciate your trust in our caring for their needs.  If you do get voicemail, please be sure to leave a message!  We are likely caring for the guests currently staying with us or we are helping another client!  

**A note about our hours:  Our hours are set to provide the most stress free environment we can for your dog.  If we are open 12 hours a day, your dog will be up and barking 12 hours a day.  Each time a dog checks in or out and each tour that comes through the hotel causes the dogs to be alerted and bark.  We want to keep the dogs stress down.  Your dog likely sleeps a good part of their day at home.  We cannot duplicate your home.  We can however properly feed your pet, properly exercise your pet, love your pet and keep your pets room clean. This is also why we do not mix dogs from different owners.  I want your dog safe! I will not allow this facility to become like a big box facility.  It is not doing your pet justice.
