“Ritz-Carlton” of Dog Hotels Celebrates Grand Opening in Malvern

Local dignitaries join K9 Resorts for ribbon cutting, tours of luxury doggie daycare

MALVERN, Pennsylvania—Aug. 7, 2019 — K9 Resorts Daycare & Luxury Hotel of Malvern celebrated its grand opening at 309 Lancaster Avenue in Malvern on August 3 with more than 200 attendees. Owned and operated by Newtown Square residents Ed and Cheri DeLong and their son, Teddy, the 13,000-square foot upscale doggie day care and boarding facility was welcomed to the community by East Whiteland Township Board of Supervisors Chair Sue Drummond and Planning Commission Chair Deborah Abel, who commemorated the official opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

In addition to the ribbon cutting, the DeLongs introduced guests to the New Jersey-based franchise’s second Pennsylvania location by giving free tours of its numerous doggie suites, boarding rooms, outdoor play areas and more.

Recognized as the ‘Ritz-Carlton’ of dog hotels, K9 Resorts of Malvern offers hospital-grade air filtration systems, Italian tile, antimicrobial flooring, and individual room humidifier systems, as well as in-room flat screen televisions, architecturally distinctive moldings, a stunning lobby chandelier and professionally trained staff to care for all of its four-legged guests.

“We had a wonderful time celebrating with the community,” said Cheri DeLong. “We spent an afternoon with our new neighbors and future customers introducing our luxury accommodations, and talking about service and bringing new jobs to the area. We’re looking forward to being a trusted solution for dog owners who want to give their furry family members a comfortable, loving and luxurious place to stay that will treat their companions like we do our own.”

K9 Resorts of Malvern will employ approximately 20-25 employees. The resort will be able to accommodate nearly 100 dogs per day for overnight boarding and its doggie daycare operations.

“Reservations have significantly increased in the last few days,” said Ed DeLong. “It just goes to show how strong demand is in this area and the surrounding communities. We’re excited to offer doggie daycare and boarding services that exceed industry standards.”
