About Foothills Pet Resort

Amazing services for amazing pets.

Perhaps your dog enjoys romping around with other canine friends all day, or maybe prefers to curl up on our receptionist’s lap for some TLC.  No matter the circumstance, our goal is to ensure that your pet has the least stressful experience possible while in our care.  Whether visiting for Boarding, Daycare, or Grooming, you can rest easy knowing that your pet is being taken care of at the highest level possible.

Located in the Ahwatukee Foothills of Phoenix, our first location opened in July 2006 when owners Jimmy Barker (right above, with his dog Arnold) & JJ Kruglick (left above, with his dog Toby) purchased a failing boarding & daycare facility called “The Pampered Pooch.” Unfortunately, the pooches were not exactly being pampered. With a quick rebranding to Foothills Pet Resort, and under their new direction, expanding twice in 3 years to meet increasing demand, they purchased the neighboring groom shop, Pretty Paws Pet Salon in March 2008.  On Memorial Day Weekend 2014, our Ahwatukee location expanded once again by moving into a larger stand-alone building in the same shopping center.

In April 2014 we opened our 2nd location conveniently located near the Biltmore between the Arcadia and North Central Phoenix neighborhoods.  Situated on the Southwest corner of 32nd St & Lincoln Dr., the new location is ideal for the many commuters coming in from the north valley on their way into the Camelback Corridor as well.

Call us anytime, or drop by either location for a tour during our regular pickup & dropoff hours.
