We are Steven and Jason Parker, brothers, lifelong animal lovers, and lifelong residents of New Jersey. We are the proud founders of K9 Resorts Daycare and Luxury Hotel, the number one rated pet service in New Jersey. It is our pleasure to take this time to let you know a little bit about our history.
In 1999, at the ages of 14 (Steven) and 12 (Jason) we started our first pet care business, K-9 Guardians Professional Pet Sitting, out of our love for dogs. At that time, we never planned on pursuing pet care as our careers, we just welcomed the idea to care for pets and earn extra money at such a young age. Everything changed in the fall of 2002 when Steven flew to Nashville, Tennessee in order to attend “Quest for Excellence”, an international conference and convention for professional pet sitters. It was at this convention and by witnessing how successful other pet care professionals had become, that our dream to open a luxury hotel for dogs was born. We spent many years researching and travelling all over the United States in order to research and later develop the finest and most state-of-the-art pet care facility.
In 2005 we purchased a commercial building in Fanwood, New Jersey and had it custom engineered and constructed to be one of the finest pet care facilities in the nation. Due to the unparalleled level of service offered, K9 Resorts is the only facility in New Jersey that is rated #1 by multiple major publications. This is something we are enormously proud of.
