With humble beginnings and a strong faith, the business has grown to become the areas finest pet vacation resort. Founders and co-owners Gary & Kim Buchen live on-location in their restored 1800's farm house. Their daughter and son-in-law (and co-owners) Dashia & Cody Stauffer, live in Manheim and can be found daily around the Club doing what they love best, caring for you and your pets.
A little bit of history
In 1987, the Buchen family was blessed with their first puppy, a Siberian Husky, Chelsea. Within a few years, they began training and breeding Huskies. Kims youngest daughter Dashia, than 5 years old, loved to help her mother, playing with and socializing the puppies.. Before they knew it, unexpected doors started opening...
In 1991, Kim began grooming dogs in the familys 4-car garage, which her husband Gary graciously remodeled. A few years later, Kim taught Dashia the art of dog grooming.
In 1995, after encouragement from Kim's friends and grooming clients, the first addition to room pets was built! (Happy Hounds & Jazz Flats)
In 2008, to make room for the growing number of roomers, they added the main Canine Country Club lobby and additional luxury pet rooms. (fany Suites & Chelsea Condos)
Then in 2012, needing to expand to accommodate the growing Doggie Daycare, Dashia and Kim designed and built the newest addition to their facility: The
Clubhouse! Brand new modern rooms with TV, indoor gym, and Feline Villas made this one of the coolest parts of the Club!
Today we continue to strive for quality and excellence in all of the services we offer here at Canine Country Club.
