Pet Enrichment Academy
Our Enrichment Academy is a doggy daycare specially designed for smart, bored and anxious pets. We provide them with an individualized, structured day that will increase their socialization and reduce anxiety. At the end of a day at TLC’s Enrichment Academy, your dog will come home tired but not exhausted.
Our animal friends receive great benefit and relief from bodywork and massage therapy; including but not limited to:
• muscle tension
• circulation improvement
• soft tissue recovery
• stress hormone reduction.
Massage Therapy is relaxing overall and helps support the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, which all can contribute to comfort care and or recovery in injuries and arthritis compensation and pain.
Concierge Transport Service
Your pet will be transported by the Comforter in Chief in a climate controlled vehicle designed to keep them safe and comfortable. For the safety of your pet, they should be in a crate or a carrier bag. Customized chauffeur service is available for $25 each way within the Topeka city limits. Outside of the Topeka city limits we charge $25 plus 60 cents per mile. Please request this service when you make a reservation.

Your friend will be kept in comfort with compassionate care delivered by our professional staff. Care includes administering medicine, monitoring vitals, changing wound dressing, and much more.
Facility & Amenities
TLC Pet Nursing Hotel is a luxury hotel for cats, dogs and on occasion a rabbit! Located in a single-family home that has been totally renovated, it has been designed as your pets’ “home away from home”.
Featuring beautiful dog suites designed by the Mason Company, each Suite is a luxury living space for dogs that function as a bedroom. All of the suites are built with a modern glass door and bear no resemblance to a cage or kennel. Finally, each suite is enriched with amenities that provide mental stimulation and comfort specialized to your pet’s needs.
The feline suites are custom built to fit the space in our Cat Penthouse. The Penthouse is upstairs away from the dog area to help our feline guests relax. Each suite features glass doors, inside there are two separate spots to perch and preen and a separate space for the litter box. There are windows to look out of and if desired, they can get plenty of time to be out of their suite and investigate the space. We also use pheromones that help our guests feel at home.
Most importantly, team members are on staff 24/7 to make sure our guests are fed, walked, medicated, cuddled and cared for while ensuring that the hotel is safe and clean. Your pet is always monitored visually by our in-suite camera system.
We are proud of what we have created here in Topeka for our Pet Friends. If you would like to see TLC for yourself, please contact us for a tour at (785) 329-6141, we would love to meet you and show off our hotel!
Checking in at TLC
To make sure we have all the information we need to take care of your pet, please arrive at least 15 minutes early before your pet’s first stay so we can get to know you and your pet.
During this consultation, a team member will ask questions about your pets’ personality, their likes and dislikes, eating and sleeping habits and check on any anxiety conditions. If there are any medical needs, we will review the prescribed medication needs, dosage and times of administration.
As much information about your pet that you can provide to us will ensure their best experience at TLC. Being away from you and away from home can be stressful for your furbabies, we want to make sure they stay as happy, comfortable and healthy as when you left them with us!
If you would like to have your pet stay at TLC you can call us (785) 329-6141 or make your pet’s reservation online with our convenient scheduling system.

What is Reiki?
Reiki is a hands-on healing method that originated in Japan. The practitioner channels healing energy through her hands to the animal through a light touch either directly on the body or from a distance.
The word Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a Japanese composite word usually translated as “universal life energy”. It is based on the idea that all living beings have life energy flowing through them.
Reiki is a safe complement to conventional Western medicine, Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, homeopathy and all other forms of healing.
Animals, especially cats, are naturally receptive to the Reiki energy and tend to gravitate towards it readily (some people even say cats invented Reiki). Some pets may initially prefer to experience the energy from a slight distance, rather than having the practitioner’s hands directly on them.
Reiki sessions for pets typically last 15-30 minutes. Some health issues can be resolved in two or three sessions, others may take ongoing sessions on a recurring basis.
Reiki is great for pets:
- Enhances overall well-being.
- Strengthens the immune system for cancer therapies.
- Accelerates healing following surgery or illness.
- Can help with behavior issues by promoting relaxation and stress reduction.
- Provides comfort and relieves pain, anxiety and fear for terminally ill animals.
