About K9s Only

K9s Only

With a passion for animals, Bobby Dorafshar started training dogs in the late 1980's. In 1990, he opened Advanced K-9 Services, a training/boarding business he operated out of his home. It was important to Bobby, his wife Kelly and their staff that every dog that stayed with them felt like they were at home, whether they were boarding for a few days or staying for three weeks of training. And just as important was that all clients were treated as friends and that they felt comfortable with the personal attention and care that was given to their pets.

In 2006, Advanced K-9 Services became K9s Only and opened a larger, brand-new, state of the art facility in Tarzana to accommodate everyone's training and boarding needs. Then, in 2011, K9s Only opened it's second location is West Los Angeles.

Bobby designed and built both K9s Only locations to meet your dog's every desire. His and the K9s Only staff's passion for animals is evident in every detail. We've always strived to keep a friendly and family-like environment for both our human and canine clients.

Don't be surprised when we get excited to see your dogs again or feel sadness when it's time for them to go. We bond with every animal that comes to us and treat them as we treat our own pets. Every dog gets plenty of love, attention and playtime.

Our all-inclusive destination for K9s Only offers training, boarding, daycare, grooming and wellness/day spa services. Please feel free to take a tour of our locations, meet the staff.

K9s only has staff to attend to your dogs every desire 24 hours a day. Our commitment is to provide you and your K9s with the best possible care, compassion and attention. Our entire staff is animal first aid and CPR trained and committed to ensuring a safe and positive environment.

We look forward to seeing you and your companions.
