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. 


Dogs that have been evaluated and cleared for playgroup will spend their stay with us playing the day away! Dogs that have not been evaluated, need special accommodations, cannot go out in group, etc. are known as a “private play and potty”. These dogs are assigned a handler each day that they get to spend their whole day with – they still get to go outside and play, AND they get bonus snuggle time alone with their handler! We do enrichment for all of the dogs in our facility, but we pay special attention to our “private play and potty” dogs, as they don’t get the stimulation from playgroup like the rest of our pups. See our FAQs page for more info on what a day in our facility looks like!


We love our kitties here! Our boarding cats have two options: they can stay in one of our cat condos (a three-tier kennel next to a window for plenty of sunny naps), or they can stay in one of our suites. Our boarding cats stay separate from our dog area, ensuring that they have a peaceful vacation with us. As long as they are willing, our staff takes them out to play and snuggle every day!

    In-home pet sitting gives your pup or cat all the comfort and familiarity of home– at home! When you can’t be home with your furry pals, we’ll come and keep them entertained.

    This is a great option for multi-pet homes, dogs or cats who have recently had medical issues, puppies and kitties, and elderly pets. Your pet sitter will make the most of your dog’s days while keeping them on a familiar schedule.

    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!!!
