About Us

DogWatch by Heartland Kennels

It's all about your dog!

Eric and Miranda Shannon purchased Heartland Kennels Pet Resort in 2017 and we will continue making it your pet's home away from home, as well as your grooming and training destination.

We proudly continue to provide DogWatch services to the Iowa Great Lakes and surrounding counties. We love working with animals, and we provide DogWatch because we want to make sure your pets are safe whether they are at home or are on vacation at Heartland Kennels.

Eric and Miranda are lifelong Iowans, and are parents to 3 children-Sean, Brayden and Laura; and 4 dogs-Chloe (beagle), Mia (mini Ausie), Yukon and Dakota (Huskies); as well as 2 cats-Felix and Trixie.

We hope to have the opportunity to help keep your pet safe.

Customer Testimonial

The results have been phenomenal with our three labs. They have learned the boundaries and they do not cross them. The peace of mind and the reduction of stress - on both humans and dogs - has made all the difference in the world.
