About Spokane’s Pet Center
The K9 Country Club Story
K9 Country Club was founded in 2013 in Spokane Valley, Washington by Nick Lungu, owner of the award-winning german shepherd breeder and dog training company, I-Guard International.
Spokane’s Pet Center provides the area with a one-stop-shop for all pet needs, from high-quality pet food and supplies to advanced dog training, pet grooming, boarding and canine hydrotherapy. Now offering veterinary services with the addition of Dr. Danette Roberts! It’s the first and last place your pet needs in Spokane.
2019 – K9 Country Club expands to add a full-service veterinary and surgery center.
2015 – We added two new play yards to our facility, increasing our total to over 10,000 sq.Ft. This means more clean, safe and comfortable play area for your pet. You won’t find your dog laying in dirt and gravel at K9 Country Club!
2014 – Canine hydrotherapy was added to our list of services in 2014. We are committed to your dog’s health, and this gives us the opportunity to offer rehabilitation and weight loss programs for your pet.
2013 – K9 Country Club opens in December 2013 in Spokane, WA providing Spokane residents the first pet center to incorporate training, breeding, and supplies for dogs.
2010 – I-Guard International relocated from Pullman, WA to Spokane, WA to grow the business. I-Guard started producing 7-10 litters of German Shepherd puppies per year and started training more dogs. Bringing on additional employees, I-Guard was able to grow the business.
2006 – I-Guard started attending national confirmation shows to prove the breeding program was progressing. Bringing in more dogs from Germany to grow bloodlines and develop the breed helped I-Guard achieve that goal.
2004 – Learning more about training, I-Guard began training dogs for Schutzhund to advance the breeding program.
2001 – Nick Lungu founds I-Guard International, specializing in dog training for all needs and all breeds.
