There is no doubt that when you drop your pets off to the newly opened Kountry Inn Kennels for boarding or daycare, they will have a great time!

Kountry Inn Kennels held their grand opening on Saturday, November 7 with friends and family on hand to answer questions and give tours.

The 900 square foot building, renovated by Dobby Contracting, has a capacity to host 15 pets at a time. However, this kennel is not just for dogs! Feel free to bring all the “critters” if you need vacation boarding or daycare.

This family owned and operated business was the idea of nine-year-old entrepreneur, Hannah Philbrook, oldest daughter to owners Mike and Trisha. Hannah spent the past two summers offering pet services for families while on vacation. She thoroughly enjoyed her adventure with the help of her sibling and parents and soon after the family felt the call to convert their existing three-car garage into a full time business.

“We jumped in with both feet and have not regretted our decision,” remarked owner Trisha Philbrook. “We pride ourselves in being a faith-based, family business and will care for your pets as if they were our own.”

Rates start at $18 daily for boarding or $10 daily for daycare. Discount are given for multiple pets and extended stays.

In addition to boarding services the kennel offers a full line of gourmet dog treats and toys. Kountry Inn Kennels is located at 2700 Country Road 24, Cardington, Ohio. 614-832-1962 or find them online at
