We are excited you are considering boarding with us here at K9 Tailshakers!  Our kennel is fully heated and air conditioned and it is separate from the rest of the facility giving your dog time to relax away from other programs that are in session such as training and daycare.  We have outside bathroom yards as well as indoor and outdoor play yards weather permitting.   K9 Tailshakers is approved, licensed and held to a standard through the Illinois Department of Agriculture which holds unscheduled inspections of our entire facility yearly. We are also fully insured and hold our business license with the Village of Frankfort, IL.

Our Kennel Staff is trained in Pet Tech First Aid and CPR/Rescue Breathing.  Our team has also received external training and have been tested in Dog Language and Group Play.  A few of the items they are trained and tested on include but are not limited to:

  • Dogs in Stress

  • Dog Aggression

  • Social Interactions

  • Body Language

  • Breed Behavior

  • Leadership skills and much more!

We offer many options for both social and non social dogs.  While 45 minutes of ICP (social program) is currently included in your pets stay, many clients wish to enhance their pets visit by using one of our A La Carte Services.  The mental and physical stimulation provided in our A La Carte program helps guests be at ease while visiting.  Some activities include;
