your dog can be a dog!!! Established in 1995, we pride ourselves on giving
your pet the same loving care that they receive from you at home.
While staying at our resort, dogs are able to interact
with each other, play with the experienced kennel staff, or join in our
daycare to play under the supervision of a camp counselor.There's a reason
over 35 eastern Connecticut veterinarians actively recommend our services
to pet lovers in Hartford, Tolland, Windham, Middlesex, and New London

HAVE THE RABIES, DISTEMPER, AND BORDETELLA VACCINATIONS.

About John Gagnon- John Gagnon, known throughout the Northeast as
the Dogman®, has been training dogs full time since 1994. The inspiration
that started this unique Connecticut dog kennel was his desire to reduce
the number of healthy dogs killed in Connecticut pounds, currently 15,000
annually. Finding dogs homes is a great effort taken on by many, but does
not begin to address two primary root problems. Many people give up their
dogs simply because they do not know how to train them, and there are too
many pets that are not spayed or neutered, creating a gross over population.
As long as pets are not spayed or neutered, this will always be the case.
Rescue organizations and Veterinarians from Connecticut, Massachusetts,
Rhode Island, New York, Maine, and New Hampshire regularly call on John
for his experience and expertise.
Dog Daycare- Welcome to Connecticut's FIRST AND LARGEST doggie
daycare! One of the most common contributors to every day behavior problems
at home is lack of social activity. Let's see what we can do about that!
Our daycare is another reason why our client's choose our premier dog kennel
Boarding- Here's what you get from us.
1. A building floor plan designed for your dog's
safety, and social, as well as physical comfort.
2. Policies that allow your dog to...well, be
a dog. Be relaxed. Have fun. And look forward to his day ahead, rather
than waiting anxiously for your return.
3. A committed staff that feels that while your
pet is with us, they're our pet too.
See our boarding page for the complete story!
Dog Training- Training is much more than practicing a series
of learning exercises with your dog. Training your dog means developing
your relationship and communication together. Here at the resort, we teach
dogs through behavior management and positive reinforcement. While we do
not focus on punishing behaviors that we don't want, we do ensure that
those behaviors are not rewarding for the dog. Proper socialization is
also a very big, and often overlooked, factor in your dogs training.
Pet Fence- All fences are not created equal. The combination
of the most technologically advanced Pet Stop equipment, and our training
experience and commitment to excellence, leaves you with a fence that changes
the lives and relationships of people and their pets! Browse a few of our
many testimonials and you'll see. They don't just say, "Thanks, great job".
Many exclaim that it is the best money ever spent, that it has saved their
dog's life and that they and their pet are so much happier than before
they purchased our system.
Dog & Cat Grooming- We cater to cats as well as dogs, and offer a
wide array of shampoos to treat sensitive skin, flea and tick problems,
skunk odors, or just a conditioner for that extra silky feel! Prices vary
per breed, so call for a quote today!
Canine Nutrition- The Oma's Pride raw blends are nutritionally balanced
and complete for your pet's health. Primary recipes include Beef, Chicken,
Salmon, & Tripe. Visit them at www.omaspride.com We also are a distributor
of Dynamite Pet Foods for those that prefer dry kibble. www.dynamitemarketing.com/johngagnon
