Mark and Kayce Engen, Owners


Mark and Kayce Engen started the Canine Country Club in the fall of 2014 because of Kayce's love and passion for all dogs. Realizing a shortage of boarding facilities that would treat your pet like family, Canine Country Club was born. 

At the Canine Country Club, our sole mission is to care for your pet the way you would care for your pet.  We believe in giving your dog the attention and love that they deserve.  We strive to provide your pet a home away from home and believe in treating your dog like family. We are committed to creating a new standard for dog boarding that focuses on a low stress environment backed by plenty of one on one attention and dog socialization.  We work hard creating an environment that is healthy and safe for your four legged companions.


We offer spacious indoor kennels as well as over 10,000 square feet of spacious yards for fun and exercise.  We limit occupancy to support a low stress boarding experience. 

You will have peace of mind knowing that your pet will have a fun safe place to play during the day and a comfy place to sleep at night. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to care for your dog!
