A dog-loving couple are planning to open a full-service kennel in Allegheny Township.
Dan and Lindsay Janoski live on 15 acres of land on Indian Hill Road.
Lindsay Janoski grew up with fond memories of her grandparents’ former kennel Mar-Ken-El in Allegheny Township.
“I’ve had dogs my whole life,” Lindsey said. They have three of their own dogs.
Seeking a side business on their property, the couple decided to open a kennel. Lindsay, from Lower Barrel, is a preschool teacher. Dan works as an electrician.
“I’ve always wanted to have a kennel. It’s my dream,” Lindsey said. “Just talking to people, there’s a need.”
The Janoskis were unanimously granted a special exception last week by Allegheny Township zoning officials. The property is classified in the residential/agricultural zone.
Next comes the permitting process with the township, and the Janoskis hope to welcome the dog into the as-yet-unnamed kennel in the fall.
Kennels must be licensed by the State of Pennsylvania.
Township manager Greg Primm said it was nice to see people using their land for their own benefit. He wished them success as a small business.
“The dog seems to need constant care these days,” he said.

Janoskis plans to build a kennel at this site on its property along Indian Hill Road in Allegheny Township.
Construction on the block building is set to begin soon, and Dan participates in construction whenever possible.
“Because it’s on our property, we can monitor it 24/7,” says Lindsay.
When finished, the kennel can accommodate up to 10 dogs (one per lot).
Allegheny Township Supervisor James Morabito said after reading about the zoning meeting in the Tribune Review, he reached out to the Janoskis and helped them navigate the hearing process.
“I am so happy that Dan and Lindsay are continuing the family tradition, which obviously means a lot to them. Told.
“This is yet another business that needs to be added to the list of businesses that have opened in townships after 2022. I would like to thank the two for including me as a true supporter of their endeavours, and congratulations on their success.” I pray for you.”
The daily boarding fee is approximately $30 per day.
Dog owners must provide proof of all vaccinations and registration.
“I have no problem owning a dog that needs medical care,” Lindsey Janoski said. “I grew up with a diabetic dog who needed insulin injections.
