Our goal is for Woofers to feel like a second home.

We’re more than a kennel. Woofers is your pet’s home-away-from-home.

Woofers’ Story

Pet Boarding for Pampered Pups and Kitties

Would you like a pet boarding and daycare place that your dogs and cats think of as a second home? How about a business that treats you like a friend and your pet like family? Woofers Pet Resort ticks off all those boxes and then some. Trust us, your dog and cat will revel in the affection and concierge-style service our team provides. Our four-legged guests enjoy 24/7 care, a climate-controlled indoor play yard, 2/3-acre outdoor play yard, suites, a luxury kennel-free penthouse, and a specialist in behavioral issues on site — all to ensure that your pooch and kitty have a relaxing getaway that feels like home.

 

Formerly Dogwood Lodge, Woofers Transformed Into a Pet Resort for Dogs and Cats

7/10 of a mile from I-90 in Sturgis, South Dakota, and located at the foot of the beautiful Black Hills National Forest, Woofers Pet Resort is the Black Hills' premier resort for dogs and cats. Its owner, dog trainer Jayme Feary, acquired Dogwood Lodge’s property and transformed it into a luxury boarding, daycare, and training resort retreat for your animal family members. The resort’s name, Woofers, serves as a tribute to Jayme’s grandfather, who gave animals nicknames according to the sounds they make. With open arms, deep experience, and care, Jayme welcomes all your “woofers" and "meowers."

 

His LIfe Has Gone to the Dogs

Woofers Pet Resort owner Jayme Feary swapped the corporate world to live out his passion — working with animals. He earned a bachelor’s degree in agricultural business and economics and a master's degree in fine arts, but he also has 35-plus years’ experience working with horses and dogs with an intuitive, spot-on sense of animal behavior. His expertise, dog leadership, and empathy underpin the Woofers Pet Resort experience.

Our Mission:
Be a light to pets and our customers, employees, and community. 

At Woofers, we are a business with a purpose. We're tired of all the division and bitterness in our country. We want to, in our own small way, serve others and bring people together. We try to accomplish this by greeting our customers with genuine care and friendliness and by helping out when we see needs. Woofers gives 10% of its profits to our employees and another 10% to organizations we support such as animal shelters, spay/neuter programs, and adoption programs. More importantly, we regularly volunteer our time for community causes. All this not to toot our horn but to do what is right and good because we believe in people and our shared future.

What We Offer:
To give our customers peace of mind, we provide their pets with:

 

  • An immaculate, high-quality facility

  • Luxurious accommodations

  • Plenty of exercise for minds and bodies

  • Stringent health and safety standards

  • A family-like environment

  • 24/7 care

 

Our customers enjoy frequent updates. You can breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy your time away knowing that your pets are receiving top-level care at the finest facility in the Black Hills.

 

That’s the Woofers difference.
