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.

Our top priority is the safety and comfort of your pet and we want you to feel confident your pet will be happy and well cared for when they stay with us. We care for each and every dog on an individual basis and will try to accommodate any needs they may have as best as possible. We're all dog people here, come be a part of our ACK family!

Staffed all day, every day:

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

Whether your pet has a fear of storms, is older or younger and needs to go out more, has a medical condition or medications needing to be given at certain times, we are always here.

Feel confident leaving your dog in our care with someone always here!

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 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.
