About Kennelwood Pet Resorts

Who Are We?

Since 1974, Kennelwood Pet Resorts® has served St. Louis’s cutest and furriest communities: cats and dogs (and the occasional Pet Parent). Transforming the act of pampering into an art form has been our mission since day one, and we take pride in every nail we clip, every tail we make wag, and every slobbery kiss we receive. With 8 facilities throughout Missouri and Illinois — all of which are staffed by highly skilled and compassionate staff members — we’re honored to be recognized as the area’s leader in all things “pet care.” But what types of pet care services do we offer, exactly?

Trained the Kennelwood Way, our dog groomers aren’t just here for the paycheck—they honestly love giving pets the full five-star spa treatment. From dog haircuts and SHED-X® Treatments to cat nail trims and baths, our staff does it all. Make your pet grooming appointment online.

Doggie DayCamp

With monthly themed Howliday parties and daily treats and activities, DayCamp is the most popular service provided here at Kennelwood. We place your dog with other similarly sized pups with the same temperament, allowing everyone to have a good time. Our cage-free doggie daycare is 100% supervised and there’s no reservation required for vaccinated and spayed and neutered pups to attend!

Expert-Led Dog Training

The professional Kennelwood dog trainers help Pet Parents better communicate with their pups. We provide everything from daily to weekly training classes, either at one of our canine training facilities near St. Louis or in the privacy of your own home. Whether you want to teach your old dog new tricks or your new dog old tricks, we’re here to help. Request a free dog training evaluation to get started.
