About Us

We are a small facility down a dirt road surrounded by nature, but only 5 miles from the center of Mountain View, Arkansas. You will find a safe, loving, and clean facility with a country feel at Country Pet Playground. Since 2017, we have provided dog boarding, daycare, and grooming as of 2021.

Our indoor building is 1,500 square feet that is environmentally controlled. We have 8 high-quality kennel suites that vary in sizes from 6 x 6-foot to 4 x 4-foot. To keep everyone comfortable, we provide raised beds from Kuranda.

The outdoor play area is about 8,000 square feet of secured 6-foot fencing. We have doggie playground equipment for them to run, jump & play on!
