About Us...
Busch's Kennel is owned and operated by William and Cecile Busch.  The kennel was originally built for their own show dogs and has been enlarged two times.   

In 1960, the Buschs began raising and showing Beagles.  They expanded their interest in the dog show world by handling dogs for other breeders and owners.  They showed dogs all over the country, including the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club dog show, where Bill handled a dalmatian named Ch. Fireman's Freckled Friend to a Non-Sporting Group first place win.

They are now retired from the dog showing world and have devoted even more time to their boarding facility.

The Buschs were longtime officers in the local Southeast Missouri Kennel Club and are members of the National Beagle Club.

Julia has been with us since 1998 and has been an integral part of our operation since then. She's a natural with animals and is well-versed in pet care and nutrition.  She is very knowledgeable about every phase of our business and will treat you and your pet with kindness and consideration.  She lives with a lovely tortoiseshell cat named Iris.

Stacy and Chris are our daughter and son-in-law.  Both fill in as needed.  Stacy owns Busch Pet Products, a holistic pet supply store in Cape.  She is also certified in Pet First Aid. You'll see Chris behind the scenes, working and maintaining our six acre property.  They own five cats and a dog named Elsa.
