Ribbon cut on New Ulm dog boarding business | News, Sports, Jobs


NEW ULM – Jon Hansen of New Ulm said he got his first dog, a golden retriever, 13 years ago, and quickly learned that he loved working with dogs and training in the canine obedience. He also said he enjoys making friends with other dog owners.

Hansen worked at Pups Playland, a dog daycare and boarding facility on North Broadway Street before buying an existing dog boarding facility and opening the Minnesota Canine Club, LLC, at 520 20th North Street on May 2.

“My goal is to make New Ulm a bit more dog friendly,” said Hansen.

The company offers dog boarding, training, daycare, individual and group training.

“I’m looking for a (dog) groomer” he said.

Hours of operation 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and weekends by appointment.

Hansen said he now has 19 dogs and has room for 22.

Hansen said he became more encouraged by the business after learning that some people were bringing their dogs to Mankato for these services.

An open house is scheduled for 4 p.m. on Friday, June 24.

On Wednesdays in June, Hansen invited dog owners to Pins and Paws at the August Schell Brewery, a local and regional animal rescue fundraiser with live music, food trucks and beer.

Pets remain on a leash for the event. Participants are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.
