Mike and Kari Enmon, Owners – The desire to build a pet resort had been brewing in Mike Enmon’s mind long before he mentioned it to his wife Kari. He saw the way Kari loved and cared for their Miniature Pinscher, Wishbone and Labrador Retrievers, Sam, Bo and Isaac and her habit of filling her office with photos of her four-legged babies. He laughed at pictures of Kari with her childhood companion, Barney (a Beagle), who was always by her side and was the subject of countless photos he patiently posed for.

In May 2008, Mike casually suggested the idea of building a pet resort to Kari and she latched on to it like a “dog with a bone” (pardon the pun!). After over two years of extensive research and training about all aspects of designing, building, operating and managing a premier luxury pet resort and spa, Mike and Kari’s dream came true when Kickapoo Ranch Pet Resort opened for business.

Mike has a BBA from Texas A&M and an MBA from the University of Chicago and has seen success in the banking industry, including investment banking in New York and corporate lending in Houston. Prior to his banking career, until the age of 28, Mike operated his family farm, which consisted of a quarter of a million chickens, hundreds of head of cattle as well as timber and hay production. Mike, an avid duck hunter, appreciates the companionship of a good gun dog and has enjoyed training numerous Labrador Retriever pups through basic training, until the pups moved on to advanced American Kennel Club Field Trial or gun dog training. He also has countless years of experience training and competing with his own Labrador Retrievers in Field Trials and is a licensed Retriever Field Trial judge. Mike directs the training program at Kickapoo Ranch Pet Resort; personally working with every dog enrolled in obedience training, and is a consultant on all other aspects of the facility.

Kari graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a degree in accounting and is a Certified Public Accountant. In her corporate career spanning almost 20 years, Kari was highly valued for her attention to detail, leadership and project management skills.  As owner and manager of Kickapoo Ranch Pet Resort, Kari now has her dream job, a career that provides her with the opportunity to spend the day surrounded by dogs and cats, and also to work with a great team that shares her love of animals. Kari feels blessed to be able to spend her days caring for her guests and also finds it extremely rewarding to know she is providing valuable care and services to pet parents and their beloved companions.
