Compare Our Costs

At first glance, other dog kennels and boarding facilities may look less expensive- but that’s not really the case. Before you’re taken in by the low rates, take a look at their a-la-carte menus.

At NBK9 it’s all included.

Ladies and gentleman, we can’t imagine making you pay so that your furry family member can potty more than twice a day - or asking you to pay extra just because your dog is larger. Giving your dog a great day is our job, so shouldn’t potty breaks, treats and playtimes come with the territory for your dog's enjoyable stay? When everything is included in one fair price you can rest assured that your dog is getting our very best, and that you won’t be surprised by hidden charges.
