RICKETTS
PET RESORT

As a natural progression after 30 years of showing and breeding

dogs my husband and I decided to go into boarding dogs for people

when they need to be away from home. So ten years ago

we went ahead and built the kennel using several different ideas.

I have never liked the odor that most kennels have, so I decided to

try putting wood shavings in the runs and it has worked out very

well. The soiled areas are picked up daily and new shavings added.

Every other day all runs are sprayed with a mixture of water, bleach

and Dawn dish soap.  After 10 years of boarding we still do not have

a urine odor. 

Unfortunately six months after opening my husband passed on and
so it ended up being my own venture.

All runs are under cover and enclosed in winter.

The kennel building is heated in winter and has fans for
summertime.

We are open 365 days a year between 8 A.M. and 8 P.M. so you can pick up your pet at your convenience .

Owner has 30 years of breeding and showing dogs and also has worked for Veterinarians.

We have outside exercise areas for your pets to play in during nice weather besides the individual runs.

We are located within 20 minutes of downtown Grand Rapids.

A very quiet location in a country setting.

Competitive rates.
