Boarding at Heartland Pet Resort

Reservations are required. Make your reservation by sending us an email at or call 712-262-5778.

Safe, clean and fun, our country resort is the ultimate pet destination. We help pet owners who are looking for a spacious and comfortable place for their 4 legged fur children to stay feel confident about leaving their beloved pet at the pet resort. The resort owners live on-site too along with their kids and fur-kids providing added peace of mind. So, no need to worry about who will take care of your pet during inclement weather when travel even across town is bad we are already here caring for your pet. We take our responsibility of caring for your dog to heart and care for our guests as if they were our own pets. Our trained staff loves animals and look forward to lavishing your dog with personal attention while striving to consistently provide our guests with the highest quality of care possible. We utilize about 13 acres at the resort. This means lots of room for activities including outdoor pools and sprinklers to play in on those hot dog days of Summer. We have a nature trail that covers about 2 acres for pets who love to go on walks. There are several large outdoor play yards some designed to just be able to cut loose and run free and some have fun play equipment set up such as the agility equipment. When the weather is not agreeable to spend time outside playing we have fun in our indoor areas. When your dog is not busy playing, they can relax in their extra-large suites comfortably furnished with chairs, beds, blankets and toys and enjoy the scenic view from their individual outdoor run. We are dedicated to providing the ultimate in comfort, health and safety for each of our guests and we strive to make every guests’ experience as enjoyable as possible. We regularly diffuse high quality essential oils throughout the resort to help promote a peaceful experience. As well as playing calming classical music, the radio or TV for added comfort in our guest suites. Each of our guest rooms offers all the services you expect from a luxury resort including:

  • Clean, comfortable, climate-controlled surroundings
  • Fresh water available in room at all times and freshen multiple times daily
  • Meals prepared especially for your pet (your food or ours)
  • Veterinarian Prescribed medications administered upon request.
  • Food dishes washed after every meal
  • Freshly laundered linens
  • Soothing music and soft lighting on for comfort
  • Separate buildings for large and small dogs
  • Separate quite areas for older or more reserved dogs
  • Personalized, individual attention to each of our guests, "just like leaving your dog with a friend".
  • Country walks and play time
  • Full service grooming available during stay
  • Reservations are required
  • Proof of vacinations (including bordatella for canine cough) required

We have several room options available to ensure the comfort of our guests. We offer both indoor only suites and indoor suites with their own individual outdoor run. No matter the room the dogs still get out for potty breaks and activities every 1-2 hours with a naptime in the middle of the day. We offer some of the largest suites in the area for the extra comfort of your big dogs who need the room or for family pets who want to share a room but also need to be able to spread out. We offer individual playtimes where dogs from the same family can play with our staff one on one. So, no need to worry about weather your dog will be stressed by play in a large group of strange dogs. Dogs are pack animals and love to play in well established groups but sometimes figuring out that hagiarchy of the pack can be stressful and tiffs may break out. So, we prefer to keep your mind at ease that they will get lots of fun playtime in without the worries of if they will be ok in a group play setting with other dogs or not.

Our cat boarding is in a separate building away from our dog guests and offers individual kitty condos featuring floor to ceiling climbing wall and cat towers.
