Kingsmark was established in 1962. It began with the passion and love for the collie breed and was founded by John J. Kavanagh. After finishing college and becoming the youngest real-estate broker in Flagstaff, he wanted to put his distinct mark on the rough collie as well as boarding facilities in Northern Arizona. He decided to offer Flagstaff an alternative to the same old idea of dog boarding. This began Kingsmark Kennels. The business paved the way for a higher standard of what a pet care should be like.
Kingsmark Kennels is the only 2nd Generation boarding kennel in Flagstaff, Az. Never being sold or turned over to new owners. When we say we are the most experienced, we mean it and the years in the business prove it. Over the last 50 years our entire family helped make Kingsmark the Best pet care facility available in Northern Arizona.
We are the only kennel in Flagstaff, AZ that is a part of American Kennel Club as well as International Boarding and Pet Care Service Association. Our entire staff goes through independent certification. We stay up to date with current events as well as taking pride in sponsoring a lot of Northern Arizona’s adoption and rescue events. We work very closely with Paws for Placement, Fresh Start Pet Rescue, Rez Rescue and Second Chance helping homeless animals find forever homes.
John J. Kavanagh unexpectedly passed away on August 5th 2010. We miss him beyond words and know that he is forever smiling down upon us. His daughter Shannon and son in law Rich have now taken over the family business and look forward to continuing the high standards that john had set forth. He definitely put his mark on boarding facilities in Flagstaff Arizona and has now given his family a chance to do the same. Thank You to everyone in the community for voting Kingsmark Kennels “The Best Kennel "!
