K9 Resorts Daycare and Luxury Pet Hotel celebrated the grand opening of its Wellington location on Saturday, Oct. 2. The 8,000-square-foot luxury dog resort and daycare facility is located at 3381 Fairlane Farms Road. This is the first Florida location for the New Jersey-based franchise.
Local business professionals, K9 Resorts personnel and prospective clients gathered for the official ribbon cutting on Saturday afternoon, and a series of facility tours were held throughout the event. The facility was closed on Sunday for a deep clean, in accordance with industry best practices following a large public event, to prepare for the hotel’s first guests.
Owned and operated by entrepreneurs David and Heather Blevins, K9 Resorts of Wellington features an additional 3,000 square feet of outdoor play space, intricate moldings, chandeliers and state-of-the-art outdoor courtyards.
Heather and her brother Glenn previously owned and operated 21 Planet Fitness locations. As a hotel manager for 22 years, creating a superior guest experience is part of David’s professional DNA. He plans to bring that level of service quality to the hotel and daycare experience for K9 Resorts Wellington’s four-legged guests and their owners.
The Wellington facility offers sound-resistant, cage-free accommodations to ensure a calm, relaxing stay for pets, as well as flooring systems with Microban, a PetAirapy UV air purification system, artificial turf with antimicrobial agents, premium Kuranda dog bedding, and luxury executive suites with HDTV systems.
K9 Resorts of Wellington will generate at least one dozen competitive paying jobs to the area, with the potential for more once the facility is running at full capacity.
