A home away from home, Urban Dog is a caring, stimulating and clean environment for your dog. Like all beings, we believe they deserve respect, and recognize that each canine is a unique individual. As such, they receive individualized care and attention and the opportunity to play, relax or get special training.

We make it possible for more people to include dogs in their family. One dog at a time, we work for a greater purpose to decrease the homeless and shelter populations.

Kimberly Garsed
Owner & Founder of Urban Dog Playcare


For those who know her, Owner and Founder don't accurately define Kim. Canine Ambassador is more appropriate. Because running Urban Dog isn't a job, it's the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to help further understanding between dogs and their people. And lucky for dogs and their people alike, she has turned that passion into a successful business.

Her love for all creatures began early on when growing up on the East Coast. She not only had dogs, but she had horses too and today competes in 3 Day Eventing and Polo.

Today, she has over 20 years experience training dogs and riding horses. She has titled dogs in obedience and field events, both through the American Kennel Club and North American Hunting Retriever Association (NAHRA).

Kim and Max take first place

Through Urban Dog she seeks to help as many dogs as possible. In addition to the Urban Dog Rescue, she also works with Greyhound Pets of America and other rescue organizations to help place dogs in healthy, happy homes. When it comes to canines, Kim truly is the ambassador.
