Today's domesticated dogs evolved from wolves over thousands of years, but deep inside they long to be part of the pack again.
NW Pet Resort has structured its operation to meet those primal needs, said co-owner Ashley Ansel.
“Dogs are able to become dogs in a pack atmosphere,” said Ansel, who owns the business with her husband Scott. “We don't have a bunch of slides, TVs and carpets because those are anthropomorphic. These items hold smells, can't be cleaned and create stress for the dogs while they board. We cut these stressful items out in order to make your furry family members stay more enjoyable.”
Ansel owns the business with her husband, Scott.
NW Pet Resort provides daycare for dogs and offers dog and cat boarding, dog training, pet nutrition and grooming services. NW Pet can board nearly 40 dogs overnight and can take up 80 dogs during the day.
Ansel said the business gives back to the community and internationally, fighting human trafficking in Indonesian. Locally, NW Pet Resort is holding a fundraiser for a new skate park in Coeur d'Alene on Feb. 17.
Also, NW Pet Resort actively raises money to help support law enforcement. It also donates dog food to local police departments with canine units.
The business is located at 1717 Northwest Boulevard in Coeur d'Alene.
