Sonja & her dog, Ellis, welcome you to
UltiMutt Inn & Pet Resort,
and hope that your dogs enjoy their stay!
has been taking care of animals at some level most of her
life. As a child, she did pet sitting during the summers.
In high school and during college, she always had 2-3
boarding horses at her backyard barn. After college, she worked at several office jobs but
realized that she did not enjoy being cooped up indoors,
away from her animals all day.
1994, she bought her property in Burton and decided to start
a larger-scale horse boarding operation.
In the winter of 2006,
however, she decided to convert the one of the farm buildings into a
luxury dog hotel.
In the starting phases of this
business, Sonja went to various kennels
over the course of a few months. She was shocked at
some of the facilities she visited.
While some were clean and
well-run, she felt that she wouldn't want to leave her
pet there. Cramped conditions, caged-environments, with only
2-3 "potty-breaks" was not something Sonja could feel
So, the idea or designing a
place that dogs will WANT
to stay at began. The construction
and renovations on the building
previously used as a horse barn began in
May 2006. The
UltiMutt Inn & Pet Resort opened for
business on Sept. 25th, 2006.
Sonja is committed to
always improving the care at the UltiMutt Inn & Pet Resort.
She attends the Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo in Baltimore,
MD to connect with other dog-care facility owners to be able
to provide your dog with the best, most modern care
