Who We Are

Sarah Nightengale, CPH, PHA, heads our qualified staff. For thirty-five years, Sarah has been a nationally known professional all-breed dog handler. She has conditioned and presented numbers of dogs to #1 national rankings, and hundreds of dogs to their AKC championships. The same personal attention required by those elite show dogs is now available for your treasured companion.


Reservations are strongly suggested. Our occupancy is limited to provide your companion with maximum individual attention. Call for rates.

This former show kennel facility is now the area's most sought after animal care facility. Heated and air conditioned, the kennel features indoor and outdoor runs. The covered outdoor runs overlook the paddock, populated with horses, llamas, geese, peacocks, and donkeys, creating visual recreation for the dogs. A securely fenced five acre exercise area is available for large dogs, as well as a playground for smaller dogs, to work off that excess energy.

Cats enjoy spacious individual condos featuring resting benches as well as a tree to climb for spying on the nearby paddocks.

Our long professional association with the Louisville Zoo has also equipped us for caring for less common household pets. Pocket pets such as birds, and small rodents (rats, mice, gerbils, and hamsters) are welcome, as well as small mammals like guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, chinchillas, hedgehogs, and sugar gliders.
