From Our Four-Legged Family to Yours

We know that leaving your furbaby somewhere can be stressful, but here at The Dirty Dog, we aren’t just another kennel – we’re a family. We strive to develop positive relationships with pets and pet parents alike, and we refuse to settle for less than top-notch care for your furry family members. As a family-owned small business in Topeka, we understand the value of thorough, quality care – we recognize that these aren’t just animals, they’re the pets of our neighbors, family members, and friends. Our unyielding commitment to the safety and comfort of your pet while they stay with us is what makes us unique, and you can be sure that we will treat them as we would our own. 


Not every facility is a perfect fit for your dog, nor is every dog a good fit for our facility…

The mind of a young dog is curious and energetic from the start. We strive to make the most of these natural qualities by enabling them to experience, explore, and socialize with other dogs while also providing clear guidance on proper boundaries and expectations. We strive to enable dogs to unlock their full potential as a companion by providing them with the most constructive and healthy environment possible.

our history

For over 12 years, we have been serving the pets and families of our local Topeka neighbors! We are a family-owned and operated small business, and the foundation of our facility is built on education. Our staff is thoroughly trained on canine body language, safety, cleanliness, etc., and they are required to pass a series of dog handling certification courses before they are allowed to handle animals at our facility. Our owner is a certified nutritionist and behaviorist, and our management is trained in those areas as well. We are not a one-size-fits-all facility – we go at your pet’s pace, no matter their temperament. Because of our educational background, we specialize in dogs with behavioral issues – separation anxiety, fears, phobias, aggression, reactivity, and everything in between. We believe that every dog deserves a chance to succeed, and we’re here to help them (and you, pet parent) every step of the way.

What Our Clients Have To Say?

There is no better place to take your fur-babies! Mandi had the biggest heart and not only goes above and beyond for each animal but always does what she can for the owners, too. My dog LOVES Mandi and even after moving an hour away, I still make that drive to Topeka to have her groomed. It’s more than worth it. Mandi has become like family and I can only imagine that everyone else feels the same way!!!
