Your Pet Deserves a “Spaw” Day

Allow our highly-skilled grooming staff at Academy Kennels Boarding & Grooming Salon in Albuquerque, NM, to treat your pet to a pamper session. Along with comfortable boarding, we offer dog grooming, cat bathing, and all of the features to have your pet looking maintained and beautiful.

Your adorable furry family member deserves a “spaw” day just as we enjoy a spa day for ourselves. They deserve exceptional care and ultimate relaxation, and our trained staff is happy to deliver. We look forward to providing a luxurious and comfortable experience for your cat or dog at your convenience.

Comfortable Boarding

We are happy to provide your pet with a home away from home while you are traveling. We welcome any breed to enjoy our yard, kennel, and thoughtful care.

Keeping Your Pet Groomed & Beautiful

We have a patient and experienced grooming staff at Academy Kennels Boarding & Grooming Salon dedicated to keeping your pet groomed and beautiful. With the use of various high-quality grooming styles and techniques, we will treat your pet to an attractive and practical trim and luxurious bath.

Our top priority is ensuring your pet feels comfortable and calm during their grooming session. Your pets are allowed to potty in a safe grassed area during their grooming or bathing session. If your pet is boarding with us, please call us on the day of their departure for an “exit” bath or grooming.

We recommend grooming every four to six weeks for small or medium-sized dogs and every three to four months for larger dogs. We are happy to schedule your pet’s grooming appointment and give you a reminder call before the day of your scheduled appointment.

Personalized Care

When you book a grooming appointment with us, your pet receives exceptional and personalized care. We are one of the very few grooming salons in the area that offers cat grooming and dog grooming. If your pet needs any special services or requests, we are happy to accommodate any possible need to ensure their experience is a great one.

My name is Tara. I’ve been grooming dogs for 22 years. I started my grooming career at a young age and was taught by professional groomers with 40+ years’ experience. I’ve also worked in a veterinary clinic but found that my heart is with grooming dogs.


Hi my name is Dawn. I have been grooming dogs for over 45 years. I started grooming when I was 10, working in my family’s grooming shop. I have always had a passion for animals. I believe every dog is somebody’s baby and should be treated that way. “THEY ARE FAMILY”.
