Keep'n It Real Dog Salon & Spa

The Hickman's

Karissa Hickman established Country Pet Playground in 2017. She grew up in Denver, Colorado where she graduated from PIMA Medical Institute as a Certified Veterinary Assistant in 2006. She worked in the field for 11 years before moving to Mountain View in 2016 to be close to family. Animals have been her passion since she was a little girl thanks to her grandparent's love of dogs. Her great-grandfather was a dog groomer & boarder as well, so you could say dogs are in her blood! 

Her husband, Sean and her have SIX 4-legged furry children: Sir Lancelot the French Bulldog, Jr the French Bulldog, Ela the German Shepherd (retired K9 Unit) & 3 cats Freddy, Kevin & Yukon King.

Sean served this community as a Law Enforcement officer for 5 years before joining Walmart in the Automotive department as Team Lead. He is also a Marine Veteran. 



We moved here back in 2016 to get away from the big city life. Our business is located on 13 acres of land that we hunt, hike & use in order to enjoy our time on this earth.  To balance work & life, we have a strict schedule for the businesses. I dedicate 7 days a week all year to provide dog boarding & grooming. 

With all that being said, we ask that you do not show up without an appointment and/or reservation. If you want to check the place out, please refer to the boarding page. You will find out what the requirements are & how to become a client. Appreciate everyone's understanding in that we are humans too!
