  • 5 star review  My dog just started going to fitness club and already loves it! I feel so comfortable leaving him under Aloha’s care. They are alert at all times and really make sure that the dogs are in a positive and happy environment. The staff so visibly care about the well being of the dogs they care for. They offer themed packages and other fun opportunities for your dog to do as they are there. They also have a Snapchat where you can see pictures/videos of those in fitness club for the day! I love seeing my boys pictures, it seems like he is having a blast every time. It’s safe to say that Aloha is a great choice for your dog!

  • 5 star review  Aloha is amazing!! Our white lab, Winnie, goes to daycare/fitness club and absolutely loves it! The minute we walk into Aloha, you feel like family! You can tell that Heather and her amazing staff truly love your pets as their own. With Winnie being 1-1/2 years old she obviously has a lot of energy, but when we pick her up and get home, she is wiped!! They have Winnie and her friends playing and spending quality time running and having a blast! I personally love seeing all of the updates and videos daily on Snapchat! On those videos, you can honestly see every dog literally smiling! 😁 Aloha is a first class, professional Pet Resort and would recommend it to all, hands down!! Thanks to Heather and her staff!!

  • 5 star review  Aloha Pet Resort and Spa provided the best grooming experience we’ve ever encountered! The look and feel of our dog was completely different then what we’ve experienced with other groomers, and yes in a good way. The staff was friendly and went above and beyond expectations. We won’t take our dog anywhere else from now on.

  • 5 star review  Aloha is hands down the best thing I have ever stumbled upon, I love taking my dog here once a week and she gets to play with all her friends! one time I picked her up and they said she played fetch for hours (which is one of her favorite games) and I wasn't surprised that on her report card it said that ball was her favorite game to play. Yes you heard that right they get report cards. Please Try Aloha you wont regret it!!

Heather Robson


Aloha Pet Resort and Spa came to be when I saw a need for high-end care and luxury accommodations for pets. As a Veterinary Technician, I’ve been in the pet industry for over 25 years and see a huge change in what people want for their pets. They want them to be happy, healthy and beautiful. I believe that our pets deserve the best and I have the experience to bring that quality of service to Aloha Pet Resort and Spa. I can’t wait to meet your furry family friend.

Madi Leeper

Pet Stylist

I have always been passionate about animals and always knew I’d find my calling in that. I went to Hawkeye Community College with plans to transfer to Iowa State to pursue animal sciences, but I found my passion in grooming and graduated with my associates degree in veterinary assisting. Since then I’ve been grooming for 6 years working with dogs and cats from all walks of life! Focusing on positive experiences and building a trusting relationships with the pets I groom. I love continuing my education with grooming seminars and workshops. When I’m not working I love being outdoors and being creative! Whether that be pottery, painting, or drawing! I have lots of animals! Including 4 dogs and 4 cats! They keep me and my husband, Ryan, very busy!

Reba Peterson

Pet Stylist

I have lived with several animals since before I can remember. Dogs have always had a special place in my heart because they have always been there for me. My first dog of my own is Daisy and she has been with me through thick and thin and I couldn't imagine what life would be like without her. Three years later I started grooming in 2015 and have added two more dogs to our family. Even as a child I have always been particular about bathing, brushing, and cleaning my dogs teeth. I believe grooming is key to keeping a healthy and happy pet. When I'm not working you will find me cuddling with my dogs watching my favorite shows, painting, and going to music festivals
