Our facility offers boarding for clients who live in Alamance County and out of town guests who are visiting the area and we enjoy having pets from all over the country involved in our dog boarding program.

If your dog needs to be groomed or just needs a day of pampering or relaxation, call Ultimate Canine Care today. Stop in at our facility in Graham and you will not be disappointed with our excellent service or our great pet grooming staff.

In 2003, Mike and his wife Carolyn purchased 10 acres in Graham, North Carolina to build a commercial boarding, grooming and training center for the Burlington, NC area. Our dog training and grooming facility is one of the most comprehensive canine care facilities in the area, featuring a grooming room, multiple kennels, an in-door training room, a doggie day care and a separate area just for cats.

A lifelong resident of North Carolina, Mike Zimmerman moved to Alamance County in 1977. In 1978, he purchased his first show dog. Since that time he has trained, bred, and shown over 20 dogs to their championship titles in both obedience and confirmation.

Mike has been a member of The Alamance Kennel Club for over 20 years, currently serving as club vice president. He has instructed obedience classes in both group and private settings. Mike specializes in behavior analysis and modification.

Not only can we train your dog to be the best he or she can be, but we're also experienced, qualified pet groomers. Dogs and cats alike can benefit from our pet grooming services, which not only leave them looking beautiful but enhance their overall health as well. Pamper your furry friend at Ultimate Canine Care today!
