The ACK Difference

Apple Creek Kennel provides pet owners a safe and fun home-away-from-home to leave their dogs. We understand the fear of leaving your pet in the hands of new people; we invite you to come and visit our facility and meet our staff before you make your decision.

We want you to be confident that your pet will be happy and well cared for. Our staff will email you pictures showing your pup is in good hands, unless you'd like to opt out. We’re all dog people - be a part of our growing ACK family!

Staffed all day, every day:

We are here 24/7, 365 days a year for the safety and comfort of your pet, and your peace of mind.

Every dog is different and they may have specific needs. If your dog is on medication or has a medical condition, we are glad to provide the extra attention at no extra cost. Whether it be puppies or older dogs that may need to potty during the night, or maybe your dog eats dinner later at night, our staff is here to serve you. We will accommodate your requests at any time of day.

Unless something needs attention, the staff member leaves the lights off and does not disturb their bedtime. Leave your pups with confidence that they are never alone!

About the Owners:

Mary & Stan Pfoff built Apple Creek Kennel (ACK) to provide a place where people could leave their four-legged family member with peace of mind. They dreamed of creating a place that they would feel comfortable leaving their own beloved dogs.

Over 27 years’ experience of loving and caring for their own dogs, the Pfoffs have been running a successful dog boarding service at their home for 10 years prior to founding ACK. They combine their knowledge and passion into building the only pet resort in Marion, Iowa.
