Stay and Play





Only the best for your pets!

From the weekend visit to the multi-week stay, we provide dogs with an exciting and enriching experience!

During their stay, our Stay & Play guests get to play with dog friends, go on long walks, take naps and work with our trainers to achieve the goals on your training wish list. They stay at our team member’s homes, because we believe that a home setting, supervised by our professional staff, is the best setting for dogs vs a kennel environment.

This program is now open to the public, but priority is given to clients first. Friendly dogs who are crate trained and house broken are welcome. We keep our program small. On average, our staff members house 1-2 extra dogs at a time.

To make a reservation, please send us an email: info@valork9academy.com


We promote a calm, relaxed and stress-free atmosphere with relaxing music and essential oils







Enjoy your trip…your dog is in good hands!

  • I have absolute faith and trust that our dog is in the best hands when we leave town. It's such an amazing feeling to not be worried while we're gone.

  • This past week we boarded Sawyer with Amy for the first time and it was amazing!! Between the pictures and the videos I knew that she was very well taken care of. I would recommend Valor K9 and Amy and her staff to everyone.
