Shortie and Winston board (camp) at American K9', they never hesitate when entering the building so I know they enjoy their stay. The staff is wonderful and they always remember Shortie and Winston.

You simply won't get a better place. My dog Remy loves being there, it's like she's having her own vacation. The owners,the staff, everybody, is just extremely professional, knowledgeable, and helpful, simply top notch . You can see, that they truly love the animals and what they do, and it shows. You won't be disappointed and either will your pets

My 4 month old Great Dane loves this place! They are so kind and caring. We won't take him anywhere else for Day Care.

Brianne M.

My dog loves going to daycare! She whines when she sees the building and is so excited when she sees the staff and the other dogs! The staff is welcoming as well. I wouldn't want to send my dog anywhere else!

Eryn M.

Absolutely the best place to take your dogs. We never went anywhere because we could not find a place that met our high standards. This place is great and we couldn't be happier. Coco and Raven love it there and get so excited when they know we are headed there.

Michael Brown is a no nonsense educator of the pack leader (us!) &, as a direct result, a miracle worker with our Border Collie, Lola! The staff at American K-9 in MIddletown are clearly dog lovers, & we thank each & everyone for their instruction, guidance, support & compassion. "Michael Brown is the BEST of the BEST", & that's a direct quote from our Lola!

We have used almost every service that American K-9 has to offer! Daycare, boarding, obedience classes, and an at home consultation. Michael and the crew at American K-9 have made such a positive impact on our lives and the life of our rescue pup, Marley. The staff cares so much for each dog, and we really felt that Marley was at her "home away from home" every time she stayed. This is a place that really understands dogs and knows how to create the best environments and behavior plans for a happy, healthy family. I can't say enough. Keep doing what you do!

I have a 9yr old lab who has never let anyone cut his nails. I play with him in the driveway to keep them down and also take him for walks. I boarded him with Mike last weekend and had scheduled a bath before I picked him up. When I picked him up, the first thing I noticed was his nails were shorter. Jason, you are a knight in shining armor. Everyone that I met the day I dropped my dog off and the day I picked him up, couldn't have been nicer. I have been boarding my dog for the past 6 yrs for vacations or other weekend events going on and this is the "BEST" experience I have ever had. I already scheduled him for a return visit for when I go on vacation. Mike, you and everyone there, thank you!


We did a one on one training with Mike and we feel like we have a different dog! He opened our eyes and we strongly recommend his services.

Just picked Zammy up from American K9 in Middletown, DE. She was all decked out in a Christmas scarf. What a nice touch. Thank you for taking great care of her.

Kristin S.

We are so happy that Sarah was one of the last to stay at your old location, and one of the first to spend the night at your new location. It looks great, and will be anxious to check out the whole building when you have an open house. Did you have a "parade" when the boarded dogs were moved? (We asked Sarah, but she didn't tell us!) Any pictures of the transfer? Thanks for taking good care of her when we travel.
