​Welcome to John Gagnon's Pet Resort, where your dog can be a dog!!! Established in 1995, we pride ourselves on giving your pet the same loving care that they receive from you at home.


While staying at our resort, dogs are able to interact with each other, play with our experienced kennel staff, or join in our daycare to play under the supervision of our 11 experienced dog camp counselors. There's a reason over 33 eastern Connecticut veterinarians actively recommend our services to pet lovers in Hartford, Tolland, Windham, Middlesex, and New London counties.

* While we will remain closed on Sundays for the time being, we can be available for pick ups only for boarding clients, between 9:00 -10:00 AM. Please notify us if you intend to pick up your boarding dog or cat in advance, so we watch for you, as we often finish up caring for the pets around that time. This is for pick ups only, the boarding staff is not equipped to process pets checking in.

Our grooming staff together have 20 years of grooming experience. We cater to cats as well as dogs. With a wide array of shampoos, conditioners and treatments to treat each skin type and condition.

If you have experienced unwanted aggression or fear from your dog, whether to people, other dogs, or other pets, we probably have a program that will help you. 

Many exclaim that it is the best money ever spent, that it has saved their dog's life and that they and their pet are so much happier than before they purchased our system!
