Local Spotlight: Second Home Pet Resort

Pet Boarding Pet Grooming

Second Home Pet Resort is a family owned and operated local pet hotel with a slew of pet friendly services, including pet boarding, full-service grooming and doggie daycare. Owners Roger and Cheryl Naumann dreamed of creating a special place for pet boarding in the valley back when they opened in 2008. Roger’s history in luxury resort management (for humans), and Cheryl’s background in human resources and as the CEO of the Arizona Humane Society, both contribute to the unique experience pets receive at SHPR.

After viewing over 70 boarding facilities across the nation, and ten years in the making, the Naumann’s designed the ultimate destination for pets right here in Moon Valley. The mountainside pet resort is over 16,500 square feet and features skylights, air conditioning, and heating to keep the pets comfortable no matter the season. The dogs can enjoy a super special treat at the Splash & Play waterpark with water-side decks, a waterfall, and a maximum depth of 18” perfect for small and large dogs.

The Locality Homes mascot, Jetson, enjoys going to Second Home Pet Resort for excellent grooming and pampering. All salon and spa pet guests at SHPR are pampered with a bath and brush along with other services ranging from nail trimming to full service grooming. Pets pass the time waiting for their owners playing in a fun cage free environment or in one of the many varieties of Second Home’s personalized pet suites.

The personalized guest suites are also used for a safe and clean dog boarding space. SHPR provides secure and comfortable quarters for pets staying the night along with several resort activities that pets can enjoy while on their vacation, like individual play sessions, cuddle time, and doggie day care. Doggie day care is also an option for pets not staying the night. The daily playgroups are arranged by the pets’ activity levels and interactive styles with other dogs.

Second Home Pet Resort also offers cat boarding. Cats are spoiled at SHPR receiving their own plush fleece in their own kitty condos in a dog free section of the resort. Cats also get to enjoy daily play time in cat atriums that are located in the cat only area of the resort. Each nightly guest also gets a special turndown treat!

The staff at Second Home Pet Resort are passionate about caring for and looking after animals, and the dogs and cats always enjoy the time they spend at the spacious resort. Staff members actively participate with resort guests and know each pet by name. Pet parents frequently report receiving updates on their pet throughout their animal’s stay, plus in some suites owners can stay virtually connected to their pet through the internet PetCam.

If you have a senior or a pet with special needs and may require medication, the staff is always willing to provide any special care that may be required. If you have multiple pets, they also offer multiple pet rate options to make multiple pet boarding more affordable. Regular clients get excited upon arrival and owners can rest easy when they are out of town or at work knowing their beloved family pet is having a great time at doggie daycare.
