Buster's Bed-n-Biscuit

Because your dog deserves a vacation too....

About Us

We offer open concept doggie daycare and boarding in a fun, clean, country setting!  We love all dogs, from playful puppies to seniors with special needs.  Whether in our bright, warm indoor playrooms or in our four,  large fenced yards, we give your dog the experience he wants.  If your dog is craving exercise and socialization or just wants to lounge around, we have that covered too. 

Our Mission...

Our mission is simple: To provide love and care for each and every dog, regardless of breed, age or size,  just like we would want someone to take care of ours. And to provide you, the pet parent,  with a wonderful customer service experience so that we become both you and your pet's #1 choice in the NEK! 

How We Do It...

We group all dogs based on their individual temperament and take into consideration their size and age.  Dog parent's complete an in-depth questionnaire that aids us with grouping their best friend with appropriate playmates.  All dogs are interviewed by appointment.   A casual "meet & greet" enables your pup to meet us and visit the facility before staying and playing. Safety is our main priority and we want all our guests to be happy & comfortable!  And, yes, of course we can accommodate your dog if he prefers to be alone and is people friendly. Please note, we are no longer able to accept pitbulls or pitty mixes.

Who is Buster?

Buster, our handsome yellow lab, passed away January 30, 2018 at the age of 12.5 after a long battle with kidney failure.  We are very grateful to everyone at The Animal Doctor for his wonderful care.   Buster loved our family boarding business and was a terrific greeter & host. He enjoyed seeing our customers daily.  Now his memory lives on as our name-sake and Buster will never be forgotten.  "Best. Dog. Ever."
