Lots of people claim animals are their life. But when life includes six dogs, three horses, four goats and three cows– like Pampered Pet Resorts co-owner Joyce Aliaga’s does –this phrase rings true.
A 12-year certified dog trainer and former canine facility manager, Aliaga and her business partner, Frank Hake, a construction industry veteran, fellow animal lover and professionally certified dog trainer, recently joined forces to create a new dog boarding and daycare facility. Construction for Pampered Pet Resorts, located in Naples at 3840 Bush Blvd., near I-75 and Collier Blvd., began in January 2019. The facility is scheduled to open in December.
The difference between Pampered Pet Resorts and other local pet boarding and daycare facilities? This one will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, which offers patrons greater flexibility for pickup and dropoff.
According to Aliaga and Hake, in addition to offering round-the-clock care, the new, 9,000 square foot facility will offer a ratio of one pet handler for every 15 dogs. All pet handlers will be pet CPR and first aid certified, as well as FEMA certified for emergency management during natural disasters.
“There’s nothing in the world we wouldn’t do for an animal,” said Aliaga. “When your dog trots through our door, he or she will immediately become part of the family.”
Pampered Pet Resorts’ primary services will include dog boarding and daycare for all breeds, feeding and medication, and basic grooming. The facility will offer splash pads for water play, artificial turf for outdoor runs, restaurant-grade cleaning systems, an online reservation system, and live video cameras, allowing owners to check in on their pets. The facility has a natural gas-powered generator with the capacity to fully power the building in the event electric service is interrupted.
“We are 100% committed to providing the same level of care for your pet as they receive at home,” said Hake.
Several specialty programs will be offered at the resort, including one-on-one basic training and enrichment; puppy and senior dog programs; private play; water play, and unaltered male programs. Pampered Pet Resorts will serve as a shelter location for pets during weather-related emergencies such as hurricanes. The facility will also dedicate a select number of spots to Humane Society Naples, in addition to offering pet safety classes to the community.
In advance of its opening, the resort recently launched a new website, pamperedpetresorts.com, with information about available services, programs, special events, and more. The primary goals of the website are to generate awareness and share updates ahead of the resort’s opening; allow potential guests to sign up for a monthly e-newsletter, sign up to receive the first visit free, and/or submit inquiries. Users may also make reservations on the website and view an interactive calendar. The website’s user experience is further improved by incorporating the company’s branding elements, images and brand colors in various, fun design elements throughout. Future site enhancements will include the addition of regular blog posts with information about pets and the pet industry.
Co-owners Aliaga and Hake plan to launch a Pampered Pet Resorts location in Bonita Springs in the next three years.
