Ever since our daughter worked at Karnik seventeen years ago, we’ve been bringing our dogs for boarding and doggy day care. Our current dog, Ava, loves to go to Karnik. She gets really excited when we pack her bag, and can hardly wait to get inside to play with the

“My pet is always happy, healthy, and tired…”
My dog is always happy, healthy, and tired when he comes home from Karnik! It is a nice, clean “pet lodge” without all the usual desperate barking of lonely beasts that you find at other kennels. Look at the pictures on their website to see the difference!

“Incredible five star service.”
Incredible five star service. From the first contact with my questions about daycare, to the friendly faces and care we receive every single time we come in, Karnik has exceeded my expectations. I know that the staff at Karnik really care about my dog and me. I feel secure knowing

“Karnik is great!”
Romeo, my Boxer, has been going here ever since he move to Ann Arbor three years ago, and I can tell that he loves it. In fact, he gets excited every time we drive near it. He loves the staff, probably because they treat him well. I know he plays

Cooper always has a great time at Karnik and all the employees are wonderful with him especially Dan! Thanx all Karnik Staff for making Coop so happy!
“…my dog, of course, goes berserk with joy…”
Nothing to complain about here! Intake and exit are fast, staff are obviously dog lovers and knowledgeable, the space and the handling of the dogs seem great, and my dog, of course, goes berserk with joy when he realizes where I’m taking him. The only thing I’d want is more
“I love Karnik.”
I love Karnik. We’ve been boarding our dog here for 2 years when we go on vacation and she always comes home happy and healthy and not smelling like a kennel. The staff is great.

“Cleaner than most children’s day care facilities!”
My dog, Artie has been going to Karnik for over 4 years, both Doggie Day Care and Boarding. He absolutely LOVES IT! When I call to arrange Day Care for the day, he immediately gets excited and waits at the door to go! Recently, I had the opportunity to tour

“Loving place for your pets.”
Our 2 dogs go to Karnik every week for daycare and love it! They get up excited every morning, hoping it will be a Karnik day! They always come home and sleep, from all of the playing they do while they are there. The staff are wonderful, they treat our

“They really care about the animals.”
Karnik is wonderful for us. Our dog, Kingsley is a 90 pound retriever, and she loves Karnik. She comes back from daycare exhausted (which with her high energy is a big challenge) and happy after running and swimming. Kingsley being happy makes my wife and I very happy. Also, the

“My dog loves Karnik!”
I have a high-energy dog who needs lots of play time and attention, so I take her to Karnik once a week. I am very impressed by this place- it is always clean, they have double doors to prevent dogs from escaping and getting lost (that happened to a friend

“The staff, services and facilities here are wonderful!”
The staff, services and facilities here are wonderful! They take great care of our dog and offer a wide variety of useful and exciting services and events.
As a new pet owner I was unsure where to leave Rio when I had to go out of town for work in April 2011. I had driven past the Central Ave location many times and after checking out the website, called and made a reservation. After that first visit,
“Karnik puts our minds at ease.”
Bentley runs to the car when we tell him he’s going to doggie daycare! It feels good to know that he is safe and having fun. We also have to board Bentley occasionally and knowing that he will be well cared for puts our minds at ease.

“Staff was very friendly…”
Karniks was WONDERFUL! Staff was very friendly and check in/out went smoothly. Dog seemed very happy afterwards. Would definitely use again if we lived closer (in town for a wedding).
“Thank you for taking care of Charlie…”
Charlie, our 3 year old beagle, has been going to Karnik since he was 3 months old. We rescued Charlie from a beagle group out of Wisconsin, so he is a cheesehead, but he fit right in with the other dogs at Karnik. Not only do we love the interaction

I think that Karnik has been the best place for Doug. He is welcomed and is ALWAYS excited to go! The staff treat my husband and I so well and are always willing to listen/accommodate us however they can for the best interests of our dog! Terri is so warm

I have used their services frequently, both for daycare and boarding. I have no complaints and my dogs are always returned to me happy and healthy.

We’ve been taking our dog, Mario, to the Karnik for six years and have never had anything but the best experiences with the establishment. The staff is great, as a previous reviewer posted, in that the are always professional and friendly, and it’s very clear that they love the animals

“Play is always supervised with a loving staff.”
This is a great place to take your dogs and cats for socialization. Play is always supervised and the staff is caring and loving. The building and outdoor play areas are clean and artificial turf outside eliminates allergies from grass and weeds. The dogs swim in a pool on hot

“I would recommend Karnik doggy daycare to anyone!”
I could not be happier with the doggy daycare service at Karnik! I do not board my dog (I use Pet N’ Play at home service, which is also highly recommended) so I will start by saying that I cannot make any comments or recommendations about their boarding services. I

“I honestly can’t say enough good about the place.”
We’ve been taking our dog, Laci, to Karnik for well over a year. She absolutely loves going to “school”. I honestly can’t say enough good about the place. Back in…March? I think. A member of the staff wanted to know if we would be interested in getting another dog someday.

“I didn’t have to worry at all about their care.”
I didn’t have to worry at all about their care. That was important because I did not have access to a phone while I was gone. I had looked at a lot of places before I decided on Karnick. It was more expensive but worth it.

Miles, our Giant Schnoodle, has been going to doggy daycare for almost 2 years once or twice a week . He absolutely loves coming and cries with excitement when we pull in the driveway . We appreciate all the effort and time the wonderful staff puts in to make sure
