Your Dog's Home Away From Home
At GFK9, we believe that dogs are family, so we treat your dog the way we treat our own dogs: with love, compassion, and empathy. Click here to read more about our philosophy of care. We're conveniently located in downtown Glens Falls, providing service to all surrounding areas including South Glens Falls, Queensbury, Kingsbury, Corinth, Hudson Falls, Fort Ann, Fort Edward, Granville, Lake George, Lake Luzerne, Argyle, Salem, Saratoga Springs, Warrensburg, White Creek, and Whitehall. To meet all of your dog's needs, we provide the following services:
Your dog will spend the day playing with our staff and other dogs in the playgroup. They'll come home well exercised and ready to have a good night's sleep. Our customers love how even the highest energy dogs come home ready to relax at the end of the day. We group dogs according to temperament and play style to ensure everyone gets along. For safety, we maintain a ratio of one staff member nearby to every ten dogs in daycare. Drop-off any time after 6:30 am and pick-up by 6:00 pm. Full days and half days are available and can be added to any boarding visit as well.
Your dog will stay in any of our spacious kennels for as long as you need. Whether you're spending half the day at The Great Escape or you're going on vacation for a month, you can trust us to meet all of your dog's needs while you're away. Eliminate the worry of leaving your dog behind by leaving them with someone you know will treat them with just as much loving care as you do. We have four different sized kennels to choose from, including Luxury Suites with private outdoor access.
We have three types of training all designed to get your dog to be well behaved members of your family. All of our training is focused around this goal regardless of the issues you're having, whether your dog jumps on people, pulls on the leash, or displays fear or aggression: we're here to help. Our group classes are designed for people who want to be hands-on with the training process, learning how to work with their dog at home to create the perfect companion. Private lessons are fully customized to each individual's needs and can be done in our facility or in your home. Board and train services are perfect if you're short on time and need us to accomplish your training goals for you. All of our training is science-backed, reinforcement-based training by a Certified Professional Dog Trainer.
Our in-home dog-sitting services are perfect for dogs that don't need the full GFK9 facility experience, or are nervous outside of the comfort of their own home. Whether you just need someone to stop by in the middle of the work day for a quick potty and play visit or you're out of town and want several visits per day, we've got you covered. Sitting services are also perfect for your non-canine animal companions. We can care for your cats, fish, birds, reptiles, and more while you're out of town.
Our experienced groomers can provide services including baths, trims, full-service grooms, nails, doggy-facials, and more. We also offer VIP grooming in a private room where you're welcome to stay with your dog while they are groomed. If your dog is uncomfortable being groomed, we can combine a grooming visit with behavior modification with our trainer to help your dog learn to tolerate being groomed and turn the whole experience from traumatic to pleasant.
