FANWOOD, NJ -- K9 Resorts Luxury Pet Hotel is celebrating its 15th Anniversary along with the recent signing of its 50th franchisee. Founded in 2005 by brothers Steven and Jason Parker, the Fanwood-based luxury doggy daycare and pet hotel will open its newest location in Houston, Texas this summer.

“Jason and I always wanted a dog of our own growing up, and that opened the door to a successful dog walking business as kids, which laid the foundation for our entry into the luxury pet care space as adults,” said Steven Parker, co-founder and CEO of K9 Resorts. “Signing our 50th franchisee in conjunction with our 15th anniversary is a thrilling achievement. We’re excited about the growth of our business and the opportunity to be a recognized leader in the luxury pet resort industry.”

A nationally recognized and award-winning pet care provider, and one of the first luxury pet resort franchises to enter the fast-growing $9 billion U.S. pet care market, K9 Resorts recently earned the 2019 International Boarding & Pet Care Services Association (IBPSA) Pet Care Business Excellence Award for being the top care-providing franchises in the country.

Founded in 2005, each K9 Resorts Luxury Pet Hotel is custom-designed with hospital-grade ventilation systems, cage-free luxury boarding, and world-class, professionally trained staff members. Recommended by numerous pet professionals, K9 Resorts is proud to lead the way in the pet hospitality industry.
