Room Information

Each room and suite in the Resort (with exceptions of The Presidential and The Applewood) is built off the ground for your pet’s comfort. We use vet-recommended Kydex flooring to relieve pressure from your dog’s joints and pads, and have drains built under each room in case of a potty accident. The rooms are divided with walls (as opposed to traditional fencing) to prevent aggression, intimidation, urination, and territory battles. Our guests enjoy socializing with other guests across the aisle, and the soft natural lighting and skylights in the rooms.

The Presidential Suite

Our largest and most popular suite is located in the quiet west wing of the resort. The fully private suite offers a spacious 175ft2 of indoor/outdoor accommodations. This large suite is complete with carpeting, premium raised bedding, a flat screen TV, fenced in patio and turf yard, and doggy door that allows your dog to travel in and outdoors at his/her leisure. (We lock the doggy door at night for safety.)

The Applewood Suite

“Applewood Suites” at the resort are all adjacent to one another, and located with the Presidential Suite in the west wing. Each full-privacy suite offers 145ft2 of indoor/outdoor comfort for your dog. These suites feature carpeting, a premium doggy day bed, a flat screen TV, a fenced in patio and turf yard, and a convenient doggy door. (We lock the doggy door at night for safety.)

Luxury Suite

These premium 8×8 indoor suites offer quiet comfort for your dog. Secluded from the other rooms in the resort, these semi-private suites are perfect for the dog who deserves a little extra pampering, or simply prefers peace and quiet. Your dog will enjoy premium bedding, a television, quiet surroundings, a dedicated outdoor exercise yard, and extra love and attention.

Classic Suite

Newly built with televisions, upgraded bedding, quiet surroundings, and a dedicated outdoor exercise yard, these 6×8 suites are perfect for the small and medium sized dogs.

Junior Suite

Located in the same secluded, quiet room, the Junior Suites are smaller mirror images of the Classic Suites. They come comfortably furnished with premium bedding, a flat screen television, and a dedicated outdoor exercise yard.

Standard Rooms

Our standard rooms are offered in three convenient sizes, and are able to accommodate the smallest teacup Yorkie to a family of Labradors. Choose from Large (4×8), Medium (4×6, limit 40 lbs.), and Small (4×4, limit 15 lbs.).

Vaccine Requirements

At Applewood Pet Resort, every precaution is taken to avoid sickness and out breaks among our guests. To maintain that commitment to your dog’s health, we require the following vaccinations (certified by your veterinarian) to be able to check in:

Distemper/Parvo Combination
Flea & Tick Preventative

At check-in, we will ask you to provide your veterinarian’s contact information. Should an emergency occur with your pet, our priority will be to call you and call your veterinarian. If we cannot reach your veterinarian, we will call our 24 hour emergency vet with your authorization at check-in.

Play Times
Daycare – All Day
Pet & Play – 20 mins
Pool Time – 20 mins
Extra Potty Break – 10 mins

Peanut Butter Kong Toy

After a day of play, treat your dog to an entertaining peanut butter Kong toy. Your dog will stay busy chewing on the rubber Kong toy while negotiating the peanut butter from it’s core.


On the hot days in Arizona, a sweet potato and molasses or peanut butter flavored pupcicle is the perfect treat for your dog. Topped with a dog cookie, this ice cream treat makes a delicious snack!

Hand Prepared Meals

We feed our guests breakfast and dinner each day, prepared with quality foods made in America. These wholesome and delicious meals are made from three ingredients:

  1. Fromm Chicken and Brown Rice kibbles
  2. Evanger’s Chicken and Rice wet food
  3. Warm water

The resulting meal is packed with nutrients and tastes great too! We are happy to accommodate your regular home feeding schedule as well, and invite you to bring in your own food and feeding instructions.
