Pet Care

Caring For Your Pets Since 1941


American PineAcre Kennels – We Offer More Than Boarding!

American PineAcre Kennels in Muncie, IN provides more than a pet kennel and boarding services. While your dog is in our care, we can help with training, behavioral issues, nutrition, or provide a nice thorough grooming. All of our pet care services are a la carte – in other words, you don’t need to purchase any service to be eligible for another.


Additional Pet Care Services:


For pets not currently boarding with us, bathing or grooming appointments can be made for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday. We do not do any grooming on Sunday, Wednesday, or Saturday. We cannot accept walk-ins at this time and will provide grooming by appointment only. Please call us at 765-284-5829 to schedule!

The normal grooming process: We will have you drop your pet off in the morning at 8:00 AM. We will call you when they are done, or you may choose to schedule to pick them up at a certain time. Our working customers tend to pick up between 5:00 PM and 6:00 PM. Don’t worry about the long stay, your pet will get plenty of love all day with us!

For those boarding with us: You may request your pet to get bathing or grooming before they leave to go home with you. This is at an additional charge as listed below. You may also request only a nail trim, which starts at $10. We will be sure to check with you at drop off if you would like to add on any of these services.

Average grooming rates for common dog breeds are listed on this page. The actual cost will depend on the condition and behavior of the dog. We charge $1 for every five minutes that we spend dematting your dog, and $2 for every five minutes that we spend dematting your cat. We also have a $30 charge for missed appointments without 48 hours of notice.

Grooming Price Estimates:
*All prices are estimates and subject to change without notice based on condition and behavior of the animal or specific pattern.
*We charge an additional $1 for a dog and $2 for a cat for every 5 minutes we spend on dematting
*Includes bath, brush out, nails and feet trimmed, ears cleaned.

*Please note, grooming takes quite a bit of time! We are a professional groom shop, meaning we give you a professional bath, nail trim, brush out, and groom. You may find other establishments that do these things in an hour or two, but we note this is not a professional service. We completely clean and brush out your dog, getting the undercoat, mats, and trimming done professionally. This is not a quick process. For example, a typical German Shepherd will spend about one hour being bathed, one hour being hand dried, at least one hour in the crate dryer, and approximately 30-60 minutes being groomed (brushed, nails, ears cleaned, etc) making a total groom time of at least 3 hours. Another longer example is a Newfoundland we do on a regular basis. Her bath takes approximately an hour and a half, hand drying of two hours, crate drying of at least one hour, and brushing/grooming of two hours or longer. We provide a truly professional service!

Dog Daycare

$17 per day

American PineAcre Kennels also offer dog daycare services on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday each week. Dog daycare services include socialization, exercise, and play time.

Dog daycare costs $17 per day and is available from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Your dog will get to play with other like-minded dogs in a fenced-in yard. We can also have your dog play in a yard alone if you would prefer. We do not temperament test dogs for daycare because we have four large yards and three small yard areas to separate dogs in. Some dogs may not want to play directly with other dogs, but often enjoy fence racing and being beside other dogs. We have 10+ years of experience handling different breeds and personalities and can best match up what dogs will play best with others.

During the summer, each yard has a “dog pool” for the dogs to enjoy and water buckets for access to drinking water. During the winter, buckets often freeze, but do not worry; the dogs are rotated in and out of the cold and have access to water inside. It is not uncommon for your dog to come home tired from daycare and do not be alarmed. They may drink more than usual, as well, because their bodies are adjusting to the exercise they are getting.

Nutritional Guidance

 Whether you’re trying to find the best way to fix bad breath, dry skin or a consistent upset stomach, we are more than happy to talk with you. Our skilled and well-educated staff have experience and expertise that can help guide you in the right direction for a happier and healthier pet. We also encourage you to visit Roo’s Holistic Pet Supplies.

Behavior Modification


If you have a dog that will “come, sit, stay and speak” when you command – but that barks like a banshee when the wind blows wrong, or your neighbor is just getting the mail, we can help! There are many reasons to seek help for behavioral modification: from aggression with other dogs or humans to marking everything or simply being so shy it doesn’t seem they’re living the good dog life. We have a tremendous amount of experience with this and would love to show you the difference! At the end of the day, we all want the same thing – for you and your dog to live the best life you can, together. Because these issues have developed over a longer period of time, fixing them usually requires boarding and train, so that we can work continuously with your dog in a controlled environment.

 We do not offer obedience training at this time. We would be happy to refer you to people who can teach you how to develop a working relationship with your dog.


What happens when you’re just getting back from vacation, you go from the airport to our kennel, then suddenly remember you’re out of pet food at home? Don’t panic! We have an excellent selection of food, treats, and toys! If there’s anything you don’t see on our list, but you’d like help ordering, we’re happy to special order those items for you.

Our products include but are not limited to:
Blackwood Pet Food
Cloud Star
Vital Essentials Raw Bar
