Company Description
Your Dog's Other Home!

At Idlewire Pet Care your dog gets lots of space and attention. We have large indoor runs and a half acre of green, woodsy yard for your pet to play in. We take every dog outside individually at least twice daily.

Dogs are treated to the very best dog food. We provide Nutrisource Chicken and Rice which is one of the choicest foods on the market. Only the best for our guests!

We provide healthy, comfortable conditions. We use an environmentally-friendly disinfectant that is safe and very effective. The air in the boarding facilities is changed at least every 30 minutes using a fresh air exchanger to keep the environment fresh. We also maintain a comfortable temperature range year-round with a dedicated furnace and air conditioning unit for the boarding space.

Kitty Accommodations

At Idlewire Pet Care your cat is kept safe and comfortable. We have clean, multi-level cat suites with cat trees and hammocks in each space. Our window suites include sunny vistas where cats can watch songbirds and outside activity.

Our feline guests enjoy the choicest Cat foods such as Holistic Select, Nutrisource and Weruva.

Whether alone or with other cats in your family, our peaceful environment will ensure your cat's stay is stress free.

Safe, Gentle, Conscientious Grooming

Groomers stay with us. Idlewire groomers work for us for years. The industry average is only 6 months (according to the AGSA).

We believe groomers should groom. We have a customer relations assistant during all business hours to answer calls, make appointments, ring up charges, and cover the clerical aspects of the groomery so your pet stylist can focus on what's most important, your pet!

We know the art. How many grooming operations exist in the world that have been in business for over 50 years!? By innovating and moving forward, we're not only enthused about our trade - we set the standard.

We are state of the art. We keep the best equipment and tools to safely, comfortable and efficiently groom your pet.

We are small. You are connected with the owner. Big box grooming businesses are ran by CEO's and boards of directors too far removed to communicate with.

Two Hours of Ultimate Fun!

Mountain Dog Adventures are better than traditional dog walking for most dogs because they get serious exercise, social time with other dogs, and learn to interact and behave with dogs and people.

Since March of 2004, we've been hiking groups 4-6 dogs up onto the mountain or into one of the Ogden canyons for exercise, play, and adventure. We leave the trail head on-leash and after climbing out of the city limits and away from frequently used trails, we set them free.
