About The Founders

ABOUT US

Brothers Steven and Jason Parker were just teenagers when they got into the pet care business. They created K9 Guardians Professional Pet Sitting when Steve was just 14 and Jason was just 12. In 2005, the brothers were a bit older and wiser. They bought their first building in New Jersey and custom engineered it to be one of the finest pet care locations in the entire nation.

They have dedicated their lives to creating and staying true to a unique environment that is the very definition of quality canine care. In every detail of their K9 Resorts, they are committed to continuously improving pet and customer care.

The Parkers brothers have created the optimal environment for the physical and emotional health of dogs – providing peace of mind for pet parents when they are away and takes the stress out of separation for both pet parents and the pets.
