*Online Reservation Update 7/26/19

We unfortunately have had to remove the online boarding feature, at least temporarily. Shortcomings in the software have been making it very difficult to manage what dates we do and don't have available. We hope this issue is resolved in the future and we are able to offer this again to you. In the meantime you can email                                                             or call 860-537-3648

to schedule your appointments. Thank you for your understanding


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.


Check out our "News, Tips, & Events" page for useful information!

See the boarding page to find out WHY we're better than the rest.


We are currently taking reservations for the holidays! Please call the Resort at 860-537-3648 and schedule your pet's holiday stay with

us today!

 Our Doggie Daycare is the largest in CT.

We have 4 outdoor yards as well as an indoor play area, so there is plenty for your pup to do. Our indoor play area is great for those rainy or snowy days, as well as those extremely hot days.

It's a great way to socialize your pup.


Daycare is held Monday - Friday

7:00 am - 7:00 pm.

If your dog has never been to our daycare you must call the Resort to set up an appointment for their first day of play.

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. 


John Gagnon will review your evaluation form, and speak with you to determine the best course of action for you. 

Kelly Fox , Abbie Abbott, & Angel Bird make up our grooming staff and together have 20 years of grooming experience.


We cater to cats as well as dogs, and offer a wide array of shampoos to treat sensitive skin, flea and tick problems, skunk odors, or just a conditioner for that extra silky feel!


Prices vary per breed, so call for a quote today!
