About ABK


Located in Burnsville, Minnesota and established in 1977, American Boarding Kennels has been family-owned and operated since the beginning!

Owned by Kathryn Newman Bornhofen and David Bornhofen since 2006, it is the largest board facility in the Augusta Pet Services family. As owners of Augusta Dog Training, Kathryn and David were well-known and highly respected dog trainers when they purchased the kennel. Kathryn is also a regular featured Guest on Kare-11, a Twin Cities NBC affiliate.

It is Kathryn and Dave’s knowledge of dogs, training and care that sets American Boarding Kennels and Augusta Pet Services apart within the industry. American Boarding Kennels is known for its high quality of pet care offering individual suites for overnight accommodations, doggy daycare for overnight guests and daily daycare visitors.

We are proud to say that it is our staff, with their concern and devotion to our guests, that makes the difference by providing quality, individual care.

Augusta Pet Services was established in 1996 with the inception of the in-home dog training business. Since then it has grown to five locations. In addition to American Boarding Kennels in Burnsville, MN, Augusta Edina and Augusta Wayzata offer doggy daycare and professional grooming. Augusta Long Lake offers overnight care in the form of Slumber Party Boarding (cage-less boarding), professional grooming and has a large dog training academy which offers puppy through advance family dog training classes. Augusta Montgomery is a training facility for extended stay board and train.
