Welcome to North Star Pet Resort

In June 2017, we launched a highly-anticipated and exciting new component of North Star! Our new Pet Resort. We offer pet boarding, dog daycare and grooming.

Our Dog Daycare offers a truly rewarding play and social experience to the dogs of Palmer!

We wanted to ensure that pets from Palmer and beyond had access to this incredible resource and are proud to offer the following

Our off-leash playgroups are focused on fun and the well-being of your dog. Providing a safe, positive social play experience for your pet is our priority. We are committed to understanding group dog behavior and educating all our staff on safe and humane management techniques. Your dog will love playing with dog buddies of similar size and play style. During play your dog benefits physically from exercise and mentally from obedience games. We are proud members of The Dog Gurus, the best educational resource available on off-leash dog play, and have taken their Dog Play Safety Pledge as our commitment to keeping your dog safe. You and your dog will love the difference in our playgroups where safety and fun is the measure of success.
