About Us

K9 Second Line was founded in 2010 when two graduates of New Orleans universities realized there were times in their busy lives it was simply too difficult to provide their pets the care they deserved. Since then, K9 Second Line has grown to be a trusted in-home pet care provider in the New Orleans area.
