Charlottesville’s Premiere Dog Hotel and Spa
Club Canine Kennel in Charlottesville, VA is locally owned and operated by Jackie and Megan Pimentel, a mother and daughter team dedicated to caring for all animals. Jackie graduated from Va Tech in 1981 with a BS in Animal Science and Biology, specializing in reproductive physiology. Jackie worked as an embryologist for Blue Ridge Embryos and Star Embryos International before meeting her husband and moving to Portugal. There she worked for her husband on a dairy farm taking care of the reproductive health of the herd. When she and her husband moved back to the states in 1987, they started a successful pool service business in the Charlottesville area and are celebrating their 25th year in business. Jackie also owns a small farm in Albemarle county where she boards horses and raises various poultry breeds along with her dogs.
Megan is a professional pet massage practitioner and hydrotherapist trained at the Pet Massage and Research Institute in Toledo, Ohio. Megan also attended college at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and Jefferson College of Health Sciences. She has always had an interest in animals and spent 8 years as a member of the United States Pony Club and local Mountain Skyline Pony Club learning various riding disciplines, nutrition and equine care.
Jackie and Megan are excited about working together and providing your canine companion with the best care whether it is for a single overnight stay, doggie daycare, or long-term boarding.
