Why Aarf?


  • Suzie and AARF Pet Care have been walking and staying with my dog Sadie for the last year+ and I can’t tell you how happy I am with their services. They are great with the animals, do a fantastic job communicating, and are nice people in general that really care about making sure your animals get what they need while you are away. I have tried several other services and daycares, none of which have delivered the same level of care that Suzie and company have. I would highly recommend AARF Pet Care if you are looking for quality care for your animals while you are busy.

  • I can't say enough amazing things about AARF Pet Care. I was visiting Utah and was recommended to leave my dog with AARF. My dog had the time of his life-hiking, playing ball, with other dogs, and they send you a report card with pictures every day. I looked forward to getting the report card every night because it was so detailed and personalized and you could tell they know your dog so well. This was the most incredible experience for my dog and for me to trust AARF and to know my dog is in great hands. I wish I lived in Utah and my dog could go to AARF all the time. Until next visit...

  • Suzie and her team are amazing! I have an almost 4 year old Bernese Mountain Dog and a 9 month old Golden Retriever who get regularly hiked by them and boarded any time we go out of town. Their boarding is unlike others in town. It's a great small house in Murray where the dogs stay. It has a large outside fun area for the pups including play equipment and puppy pools in the summer. A doggy door so the dogs are not ever kenneled, unless you prefer yours to be. And the best part they get hiked daily. You get emails with adorable pics when you are away to keep your mind at ease. I highly recommend Suzie and her team!

  • We absolutely love AARF!! We have used the boarding and hiking services multiple times and we are more than happy with every experience we've had. The AARF team takes amazing care of our pup and we fully trust all of them. I would recommend AARF to any and all who are looking for quality care for their pup.

  • We have finally found somewhere that we don’t have to feel guilty about leaving our dog when we go out of town! Our dog is like a child to us and we only want the best for him. AARF provides a level of care and communication that I have not experienced in another boarding facility. Rather than mosey around with half hearted supervision only to be put in a kennel later somewhere else, at AARF he went on daily hikes, played ball to his heart’s content, and even got his favorite butt scratches. ❤️ The report cards and pictures we received every day while away made me feel so much better knowing he was safe, happy, and well cared for. Thank you so much to Susie and AARF for that peace of mind.

  • My dog has her peculiarities, but I know she gets personal, loving attention from the staff at Aarf Pet care. I don’t want to leave her anywhere else.

  • We love Aarf! They are always excited to see my pup and work on developing a relationship with me and my dog. They go above and beyond in their care. I love the limited number of dogs that they house and that they can take the pups hiking. I totally recommend Aarf to all my friends!

  • Every human at AARF House is loving and kind to our four-legged girl. The dogs are well-supervised, get plenty of social time, and exercise. The staff emails a daily report card with lots of photos and comments. They go out of their way to accommodate any pups with behavior challenges, shyness, etc. Oh, they also do great cat care with at-home visits. I love AARF House!

  • Suzie and the team at Aarf pet care are amazing. When we leave our dog with her it feels like we are leaving her with family and lets us relax knowing she is well cared for. Mishka loves her hikes and is happy when she is boarded with her. Can’t say enough good things about Aarf!

  • My dog Luna loves this place and always meeting new friends, dogs and humans:) The report cards are really fun to read with details about her interactions with the new found furry friends. Pictures being sent shows Luna having lots of fun enjoying her time at Aarf petcare. This is a great place to take your doggie.

  • You have been a life-saver. There have been many times I have called Suzie and AARF without any notice and asked her to pick up my dog because I unexpectedly wouldn’t be home. She has been so gracious to help us on short notice. In addition, our dog adores her.
