Woofers’ Story

Pet Boarding for Pampered Pups and Kitties

Would you like a pet boarding and daycare place that your dogs think of as a second home? How about a business that treats you like a friend and your animal like family? Woofers Pet Resort ticks off all those boxes and then some. Trust us, your dog 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 has a relaxing getaway that feels like home.


How Woofers Came to Be

Fifteen minutes from downtown Rapid City and two minutes from I-90 in Black Hawk, South Dakota, Woofers Pet Resort is the Black Hills' premier resort for dogs and cats. Its owner, dog trainer Jayme Feary, founded Woofers in Jackson, Wyoming. After selling that location to one of his employees, he acquired the former Dogwood Lodge’s property in Sturgis and transformed it into Woofers Pet Resort, a luxury boarding, daycare, and training resort retreat for your animal family members. The Black Hawk business is his second location. 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, we welcome all your “woofers."


His World Walks on Four Legs

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 and an intuitive, spot-on sense of animal behavior. His expertise and empathy underpin the Woofers Pet Resort experience.
