Sandy Pope runs not only an excellent boarding facility but the extra attention she gives each of her boarders makes their stay most enjoyable for them. She offers training classes for those who would like (need) them which get the results you want. If you want your pet to be lovingly cared for; please check it out. More...

Over the past 3 1/2 years, I have taken my Portuguese Water Dog, Bella, to the Appalachian K9 Center for occasional daycare and for overnight boarding of 2-3 weeks' duration once or twice per year.  Sandy and her crew provided warm, loving and safe care for Bella, whether her visit was just for the day, or for weeks while I was traveling.  After every stay, Bella came home happy, healthy and enthusiastic, and she was always delighted to return to AK9 for another visit.  Sandy's staff seemed particularly fond of Bella.  They enjoyed sharing with me tales of Bella's antics while she was in their care.  AK9's prices are more than reasonable, and the kennel setting--on top of a high hill, with 360 degree views of the countryside--is heavenly.  I highly recommend AK9, its staff and services.  Once I found this kennel, I had no need to search any further for the best care for my dog.

Worry-free vacations, when I leave my dogs. From the owner Sandy Pope, and her entire staff, they are amazing. I've interacted with this facility in multiple capacities in a never surprised if the wonderful treatment and caring attitude.

Mr. Lucky, a real homebody/office dog, has been a return customer here for boarding and spa dates (bath & toenails) since 2005. When we start up the big hill to A K-9, he nearly jumps out of the car with excitement! No kidding! And no wonder, everybody there loves on Mr. L., he enjoys all the dog company, and especially can't wait to walk, sniff, and you-know around the big yards around the kennels. This place is a dog's heaven. More...
