Daryl Gutknecht – CKO & Pet Travel Agent

Daryl grew up in the pet grooming and boarding industry. His “pedigree” lines come from the Animal Motel—a family run kennel that has been in business since 1960.
Daryl’s professional experience includes working in the hospitality and medical industries before joining the family business in 1999. Daryl had taken travel agent classes and applied those principles in developing the pet travel agency services for Animal Motel and ultimately AM Pet Travel Agency.
Being a certified kennel operator affords Daryl the opportunity to do what he loves—assist pet owners in transporting their precious cargo!
