Meet Prairie Dog’s talented team!

Kelly Norton

Owner

I am so excited you found Prairie Dog Boarding Grooming and Canine Daycare.  I personally have a Hairless Chinese Crested and a older Cairn Terrier and we are in love with dogs! It was my dream to work with dogs all day. I was a Dental Assistant for 14 years and dreamt of someday operating my own business with dogs. I am so proud to get up every morning for the last 5 plus years and rush to Prairie Dog.
I am enthusiastic to pet and care for the dogs in Prairie Dog’s care. Our experienced staff are enthusiastic about dogs at all times.  We know every breed and get to know each family well. The dogs can not wait to come for daycare, doggy hotel time and grooming! Do not be too surprised if they do not want to leave, we care a lot about your dog and they know it!
For Play and Groom you can drop off at 7 am and pick up by 7 pm and your dog will get walks, belly rubs, treats, frozen Peanut Butter, lap time, fetch time and movie time along with the selected music of the day all while supervised by dog loving trained staff; this is all included in the $7+ charge for Play before and/or after your dog’s Groom. One stop doggy shop!
I want the whole community to know about our $5 nail trim and small dog lounge.
I have gotten to know each one of your dogs and they are all so special to me! I have to give each one special attention and a hug/kiss.
Thank you for letting me “borrow” your fur child, I am going spoil the lil baby till you come get them to bring home so you can continue where we left off!
I would love to personally give you a free tour and talk about any concerns you may have.
Meet Just some of my Awesome Team!
