K-9 Kuts

K-9 Kuts and K-9 Kennels has opened at its new location in Washington.

Owner Angela Struckhoff has run K-9 Kuts for 18 years. Now she’s moved into a new 4,000-square-foot facility at 516 Louis St. and if offering pet boarding in addition to the grooming.

Struckhoff has run K-9 Kuts since 2000 and has been a groomer for 20 years. Grooming started at the new facility Monday, Feb. 12. K-9 Kuts features six grooming stations for dogs and cats.

Groomers will be on hand Monday through Saturday. Appointments can be made by calling 636-239-0610.

In addition to offering the same grooming services she’s offered for 18 years, the new building is a much larger facility and will be able to board dogs.

Struckhoff said she researched the idea of a kennel for three years before deciding to open the business. She said she felt like there was a need in the area for a kennel.

After renovations and additions, the kennel area has 21 cages for dogs. The cages, also called runs, are different sized to accommodate different sized pets.

Some of the runs can accommodate multiple dogs from the same family.

At the kennel, each dog will be walked four times a day. The dogs will be taken outside for a bathroom break. Each run will be cleaned at least once a day to make sure it’s up to OSHA standards.

Every dog will have its own Kuranda Cot to sleep on during its stay so it doesn’t have to sleep on the floor.

The kennel also will have at least one light on at all times and will be monitored by security cameras. Dogs will be supervised during play time.

Additionally, the facility has a ventilation system to help keep the dogs healthy.

Dogs can be picked up Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m to 4 p.m. On Sundays dogs can be picked up between noon and 1 p.m. and 5 and 6 p.m.

Holiday hours will change. Owners picking up dogs after 1 p.m. will be charged a half-day stay.

A night at the kennel will cost $25 for a dog, with discounts for multiple dogs. If dogs are sharing the same run, the price drops to $15 per dog. If the dogs require different cages, there will be a $20 per dog fee.

Owners are encouraged to bring their own food for the dogs.

Appointment can be made by contacting the facility.

The boarding facility will officially open Thursday, March 1.
