We will care for your pets as if they were our own. We do not sell any products or practice veterinary medicine. Our focus is entirely on specializing in the care of grooming and boarding needs of our customer's pets. We invite you to take a tour of our facility before you board.

    Geri Wessel has been grooming and boarding dogs for over 30 years. She has groomed a variety of breeds for pet owners as well as for the show ring. Geri graduated from the Master School of Dog Grooming in Redford MI. Prior to opening Doggone Boarding and Grooming in May of 1980, she spent most of her time working for the late Dr. Donald Spencer, a well-known veterinarian in Troy, Illinois.

Her love of animals goes back to childhood when she grew up with beagles and hunting dogs. She currently owns six basset hounds, two cats and a parrot, but has owned and cared for a large variety of animals including lizards, horses, donkeys, ferrets and hamsters. Geri and her staff are committed to providing a clean, and safe environment for all the animals they serve.

Geri also trained her dogs in agility, tracking, obedience and rally for over 10 years, achieving numerous titles from AKC, CPE, NADAC USDAA, and TDAA.
