Specialization & Services
Proper grooming practices help maintain the quality and texture of your pet’s coat, as well as health and condition of their skin.
Pet & Play
Our guests enjoy some time of the day running, chasing, tugging, jumping, and sniffing for toys as they run and play outside with one of our staff members in one of our park like yards.
Treat your dog to a swim in our custom skin-and-coat-friendly, salt water, dog bone shaped pool! Schedule your pool time today, and allow your dog the fun of fetching, splashing, and retrieving!
Outside Potty Breaks
We believe in keeping your pet’s potty habits intact, and offer two different outdoor areas for your dog to exercise and go potty.
Each one of our special guests are looked in on frequently, played with, and loved throughout their stay.
Why work with us
From the age of 12, Clayton Coady, owner of Applewood Pet Resort, knew he wanted to work with dogs. It was then that he visited his first dog show and was instantly hooked. Over the next five decades, Clay dedicated his life to dogs, and expanded his expertise to include caring for cats, birds and small animals. Clay has owned lodging facilities in Illinois, California, and Arizona, and his crowning achievement is Applewood.
At Applewood, each pet experience is completely customize-able and offers the best options for you and your pet. If you are checking in for lodging, you will be presented with activities to enhance your pet’s stay. For grooming clients, our stylists are happy to meet with you and provide the exact style you’re looking for on your dog, or your cat! For daily activities, your options range from group daycare, to pool time, to a custom massage tailored specifically to your dog’s needs.
In 23 years of business in Paradise Valley, Applewood Pet Resort has seen thousands of clients from the Valley and across the country. We are proud of our reputation, and love each pet that has visited and stayed with us over the years.
Today, there are thousands of facilities calling themselves “doggy daycare centers”; more than ever before. At Applewood, our trained staff is skilled in group daycare settings, and ensures your dog’s health and safety during Group Daycare. Our daycare program features both indoor and outdoor activities, and allows your pet to exercise and go potty outside- on the grass, and under open skies. Can your current “daycare center” say that?
At Applewood, the safety and well being of your pet is our top priority. Our normal business hours end at 6:00pm each day, but we keep staff at the resort around the clock to ensure that your pet is safe and comfortable all through the night.
Our staff at Applewood Pet Resort is truly amazing. They are compassionate toward animals, love working with them, and treat each pet in a professional and respectful manner. One top requirement for employment with Applewood is a true love for animals. We are selective with who works for us because we know how valuable your pet is to you, and understand the amount of trust you are placing in us.
