Sydney’s Pet Resort & Spa to open on the east side

Erin Dean knows how to pamper her own pets, and she’d like to do the same for yours.

She’s opening Sydney’s Pet Resort & Spa at 11024 E. 28th St. North, which is just south of 29th and Greenwich, either late this year or early in 2015.

Sydney, a labrador mix, is her oldest dog.

Dean says the resort will be similar to one she owns in Leawood. It will offer dog and cat boarding, doggie day care and grooming.

“It’s kind of all themed,” Dean says.

She chose an around-the-world theme and will have rooms decorated in the style of places such as New York and Rodeo Drive.

The building is 10,000 square feet and will have a large outdoor play area for the dogs.

Dean says she knows about spoiling animals such as Sydney.

“Yeah, too much.”
