Founded in 2016 by CEO Lauren Kopp, Kopper Kennels provides a fun and safe enviroment for your perfect pooches! During her time at Mizzou, Lauren found it difficult to leave her dog at home when she had other obligations to attend to. There was never a facility in Columbia that offered what she needed. So, after years of planning she opened her very own doggy daycare and boarding facility in the heart of Missouri - Columbia. Now many college students and older adults can feel better about dropping their pup off at daycamp instead of leaving them behind! Our state of the art facility is equipped with a large fenced in outdoor playground along with an indoor playground for not-so-sunshine days. We are also currently in the process of adding an indoor pool! Each dog has their own sleeping space for maximum comfort! They include a memory foam bed, flat screen tv, and a variety of chew toys for entertainment. On game days we celebrate with a special viewing of the game and we include a tailgating treat bar. Your dog will NEVER want to leave!


"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all paws are created equal, that they are endowed by their owner with certain gifts of life; that among these are bones, bones, and the pursuit of more bones.”
