A Day at The Dog Stop – Pittsburgh North

All-Inclusive Dog Care Facilities Near You


The Dog Stop in Wexford is owned by local couple Mike and Kathy Oldaker. Their multiple years volunteering at a local shelter lead them into opening an exciting place for dogs to come and stay and play, as well as get groomed and trained! They also carry a large variety of food, treats and toys for your pup’s enjoyment!

Roni, the General Manager, has been in the dog care business for over 15 years. She has dedicated her life to ensuring dogs in her care are treated with top-notch love and attention. Our three kennel managers, Evan, Dan and Hannah, all are avid dog lovers that ensure the place is running smoothly.

Our two full time groomers have tons of experience. Kim (18 years) and Rachel (10 years) have a large following of pleased customers. They work closely with the dog owners to ensure each groom is done to their specifics.

The facility itself boasts 30 individual dog suites, each 80 square feet. This affords the larger boarding dogs more room to relax, as well as the ability to have multiple dog households have their dogs stay together in a more comfortable space. It also has 16 state-of-the art glass fronted kennels that our smaller dogs will find suits them just right! Our 2,000 square foot outdoor play yard includes play equipment and, weather permitting, swimming pools for the dogs that love to frolic in the water.
