Amazing Team of Professionals

We have been taking our dog, Dixie, to the Second Home Pet Resort for several years. They, quite simply, are an amazing team of professionals who treat the animals in their care as if they are their own. Dixie is a timid and shy dog and it takes her a while to warm up to people. The team at Second Home was patient when we first started bringing her there and now she is comfortable and relaxed with them. We are so thankful to have the Second Home team to take care of Dixie when we are out of town!! You are the best!!!

Excellent Facility

Excellent facility, friendly and competent staff, our dog loves going for day care especially the outdoor and water play areas. Staff makes sure our dog gets to rest. We feel very confident that our dog receives wonderful care. Fortunate to have found this facility since we are staying in Phoenix for a few months.

I Would Refer Anyone Here

Love, love, love this place! We have been clients of Second Home for a few years now, and they take great care of our pups! We have a sweet, silly, and slightly dumb chocolate lab who loves it, as well as our mastiff-ish mix who is actually quite smart. We also have a special needs pittie mix, who due to a genetic disease, has lost function in her back legs and cannot walk. When we first brought her here after her deterioration started, the staff was very kind and understanding. When we picked up the dogs, we saw that the suite had extra padding and cushioning to help with Ginger's mobility. We did not bring her cart/wheelchair like thing she has, thinking it would be too bulky. However, we were wrong! One of the staff members was actually thinking of making one for her if we did not have one at home! What a caring place! Now, we make sure to bring her cart, and they use it, after asking for a demo of how it works.

Yes, you do need to pre-package your dog's meals in baggies and the care is not inexpensive, but look at it this way- you get what you pay for. Quality is not cheap, and my dogs are well taken care of here. I can sleep easy when I am out of town for whatever reason knowing they are being loved and treated well. And on the plus side, they come home exhausted, which is a sure sign of a good time!

Note: I have not had my dogs participate in group play because they are a selective pack, and can be protective of Ginger, who has the disability. However, they get lots of time to play together and they love it!  Personally, I love this place and really appreciate the love and care they show my fur babies, especially my little girl. I would refer anyone here, and will continue to come here as well.

Recommend Without Hesitation

SHPR is an awesome facility! They take such great care of the pets entrusted to them whether its for boarding, doggie day care, or grooming. The staff really do love animals and makes me feel secure knowing my dogs are treated they way I treat them. The other thing I love about SHPR is that they have an outdoor play area and waterpark. Also, some of their larger boarding suites have outdoor patios with doggy door access. I would recommend SHPR to anyone without hesitation!

Our Dogs Love The Pool

We love this place. Our two large dogs have been boarded as long as 3 weeks and have been a part of doggy day-care 2X/week since the facility opened. Our dogs get super excited upon arrival and can't wait to get in and see their friends. Also, our dogs love the pool. Cost wise, this is certainly not the most affordable, but we believe the facility is spotless, staff is caring and actively participate with the dogs.

Really Care About The Dogs

Went to NYC for 9 days (10 doggie nights) and left my brood of five (two were foster puppies) at Second Home Pet Resort. Dogs all had a grand time and they will be going back while I take my first cruise next week. I first learned about Second Home when I was fostering for another group. Everyone is super friendly and nice and really care about the dogs. Be sure to ask what you are supposed to bring and not bring, I kind of went on over kill with the dog beds & toys. Great place to take your pets so you won't have any worries on your vacation or out of town trip.
