​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.

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!


Our business hours remain the same - Monday-Friday 6:30am - 7:00p Saturday 7:00 am - ? (Call for Saturday hours) 

Sunday- CLOSED.

We hope you all are managing well in this difficult time. We wanted to make you aware of some changes to the hours that we are open. Most of our services have remained slower, but steady. We still are able to have ten staff on full time which has been a blessing. However overnight boarding is understandably way down as very few people are traveling at this time. For this reason we will be closed on Sundays, available by appointment only to drop off or pick up a pet. Saturdays we will close early afternoon, soon after the last pet is picked up from boarding or grooming. If you need dog food or pet fence equipment on Saturday afternoon, it wouldn't hurt to call first before coming down, to make sure that we are open. Someone of course is here every morning and night to care for the pets staying with us. We also will only be doing nail trims in the mornings, Monday through Saturday. We apologize for any inconvenience, and look forward to soon resuming normal hours and activity here! Thank you for your continued patronage, please let us know if there is anything that you need from us!
