Keeno is a 13yr old Bichon and hasn't been around other dogs much so I worried when I first taking him to K9. The staff took such good care of him! He now has fun and I feel confident he's in great hands. The groomer is also excellent! She pays special attention to Keeno's needs and her grooming skills are superb.

Blazer and I LOVE K9 Playland. Blazer had his trial visit back in February and has been going at least 2 days a week ever since. Everyone on the staff is friendly to the dogs and their people. Blazer has also boarded there and is always happy when he goes. He starts wagging his tail and getting excited as soon as we start to pull into the parking lot. It is convenient for the Southend or downtown area. Even a good drop off place on the way to the airport. Blazer says: "Try K9 Playland soon. You and your people will love it!"

Love love love K9 Playland! Charlotte goes every Friday, we both look forward to it. She is so loved there, every single staff member is friendly, professional and most importantly - a huge dog lover! I knew this was the best doggie daycare when I got a call after hours waiting for me bc I forgot to pick up Charlotte haha! They waited and made sure everything was fine - can't ask for better service than that!

My 2 year old Boston Terrier Little Bill absolutely loves coming to K9 Playland. When we pull up he can't wait to get inside and go play. He comes home exhausted. He doesn't ever go to any other kennel. If he is there for the day or there for boarding or grooming, he gets the same quality of care. I trust all of the staff with him and have never had any negativity concerning Little Bills grooming or care. I love the fact that he doesn't just stay in a small cage sleeping. To us and Little Bill K9 Playland is his second home. Love, love, love this place and staff.

I've loved K9 Playland since the first day I brought in my rescue German Shepherd, Bear, for her trial day. When I picked her up that evening, I got the FULL download on her day -- who she played with, when she napped, when she ate her treats, and further. That was almost a year ago. Bear started out with one day a week, then twice a week... now she goes every day and I couldn't be happier every time I drop her off and pick her up. I know that LeAnna, Erica, Taylor, Noelle and the whole team are keeping a caring eye on her, and that she's in great hands. Plus, since she's a regular, she feels at home underneath the front desk or out back in the kiddie pools. I highly recommend K9 Playland to all of my friends who are looking for a daycare/boarding spot that gives a ton of TLC to the dogs. I know that Bear and I are part of a family at K9 Playland, and we'll keep showing up every day!

My dog absolutely loves K9 Playland. Whenever I say "We're going to doggy daycare", I get the cutest head tilt and an excited whimper because he cannot wait to go. He yanks me out of the car when we get there and bursts through the door to see all his favorite people and doggy buds. 10/10 would recommend to anyone. I do daycare on the regular, board, and groom and have not had any problems whatsoever. You can tell the staff really loves every dog that comes through their doors!

I love K9 Playland! They always try to accommodate my last minute requests to bring my beagle in for a bath or day care. The staff is consistently friendly and I always feel like they're excited to see my pup. I feel confident that he's in good care while he's there.

Our Chocolate Lab Cooper goes to doggie daycare almost every day since we adopted him a year ago. He loves being there and I love that he's worn out and happy at the end of every day! Erica and the entire staff at K-9 is wonderful!

There is no other doggie daycare for our Charlie than K9 Playland. We tried another place nearby and had an awful experience. Never again. Owner Erica and her staff treat all the dogs with the loving care and respect that a family member would. My dog, Charlie, is a 30-lb. terrier mix and a HANDFUL. He attends daycare at least three days a week and is always eager to hop in the car to go to "school." He grabs his leash, hops out of the car and drags me up to the door. The staff always greets him with a smile and hug, even when he's going bananas with excitement. Their updates at the end of the day always let me know that they're keeping an eye on him and his needs. I was hesitant to put my dog in daycare at first. He was a rescue and I wasn't sure how it would go. It's been the best thing for him and has set him up for success by keeping him socialized and active while I'm at work. I know he's safe and cared for well. We've also had Charlie groomed here and they did a fantastic job. Charlie never comes home smelling gross from daycare, either (which was not the case other places). He loves to play in the pool all day and I always get him back dried and fluffed. (They even bathed him free of charge one day when another dog peed on him.) He's a happy camper here and so am I. I'm so grateful.

I moved to Charlotte 4 months ago and at the time had looked at a number of daycares to send my 1yr old Boston Terrier. I chose K9 Playland because they made us feel at home right away. The entire staff is so friendly and great with the dogs. Now my little maniac spends 3 days a week playing with his friends while I'm at work. Max loves it! [and so do I!!!]

Hugo has been going to K9 Playland for grooming and daycare/boarding for almost a year now. I would highly recommend this place to everyone. The groomers have never disappointed me and not to mention the rest of the staff is absolutely amazing. They really do care for your pets as if they were their own. I would consider myself a worry wart when it comes to my dog, but when I call a few times a weekend to check on Hugo there are always giving me feed back and calling me back when they are too busy. Hugo always comes home happy, yet exhausted from an entire day of attention and playing and interacting with the other animals his size.

I was pet sitting a 6 month old frenchie for a friend for 10 days and dropped Lola off 4 out of the 5 days I dog sat. Lola was treated like a queen, made friends every day, came home happy, tired out and was exposed to other dogs and people at a young age. She will benefit from it going forward and her owner has committed taking her to day care at least twice a week going forward! Lola would drag me to the door every morning so she could play with her friends! The staff spoiled her and gave her lots of attention, it was an awesome experience and I would absolutely recommend K9 Playland for dog owners. Dogs need the interaction and the staff genuinely loves what they do! It's a win-win!

Boomer LOVES coming to K-9 Playland. He barks all the way down South Blvd. to let them know he's coming, and he literally bounces out of the car and up to the door! Ericka and her team are great and love Boomer just like we do.

We LOVE K9 Playland. We have used both the daycare and boarding. Frankie has such a great time and usually comes home exhausted (not easy to do). Great for socialization and interaction. Also, the staff is wonderful. Frankie tends to be nervous of strangers but LOVES Erica and her team.

Even though I've moved from Dilworth to Cotswold, I still bring my dog, Maeby, to K-9 a few times per month because she loves it so much. The staff know her by name and she always comes home completely exhausted. My only complaint is I wish they had grass for dogs to use the restroom on, but I am glad it is an indoor/outdoor facility!

My coonhound/lab mix loves visiting K9 Playland! He is able to run out all his excess energy, socialize, and always comes home exhausted from a full day. He literally drags me to the door in his excitment to get in and play! The staff is knowledgable and seem to take a genuine interest in my dog, always greeting him by name! I would definitely recommend them!

We use the day care portion as well as boarding. Our dogs actually run toward the door and can not wait to get inside. The ladies there obviously love our dogs and we feel so confident in the care they provide. We have also used the services of Andrea, the resdent dog trainer from K9. Our dogs have responded well to her training and are much more disciplined and relaxed as the result. I can not recommend their services highly enough.

Love K9 Playland! It is comforting to know that Benji is safe and loved when he's there. They understand his quirky eating and sleeping habits. It is nice to know that he can lay in the sun the entire day (weather permiting)if he chooses. The staff really loves dogs!

Love K-9 Playland! They always do a great job grooming my little ones, and Molly and Chewey have an absolute BLAST every time they come. They always fall asleep before I even make it home. (If you knew Molly, you'd know this is quite the feat!) The staff is super friendly, always nice and polite! Love taking my dogs there. I recommend them to all my friends!

Taz loves coming to K9 Playland! He is well taken care of and is always tired of a day of play when I pick him up. Erica and her crew do a great job of taking care of the dogs. I refuse to take my dog anywhere else for daycare or boarding! I can't imagine boarding my dog in a kennel when he can play all day at K9 Playland.
