OUR MISSION here at The Dog Lodge is to provide a fun, safe environment for your pet while you are away. We pride ourselves on being a hands-on facility that offers constant interaction with our furry guests. The Dog Lodge cares for canines of all ages offering overnight lodging, daycare and bathing services. All this with the added peace of mind of a full service hospital next door.
We want your pup to have a great time while they are in our care. The staff at The Dog Lodge at Dandy Acres will make sure of that. Here are a few ways we remain a top choice for dog owners in the area:
We offer an attentive, loving environment while you are away. A lot of dog owners often feel sad or guilty when they have to be away from their pet. They think their dog is going to be depressed and lonely. This is not the case at The Dog Lodge. We strive everyday to give all guests positive reinforcement and make their kenneling experience a happy one. Our staff is extremely caring and affectionate towards the dogs that visit our facility and love them like their own. Not to mention we also like to have a lot of fun here, such as soccer days, dance parties, pool time & just good old playtime.
The cleanliness, consistent routine and proper fit of the guests in our facility surpass our competitors. We have an introduction day that is required for all new visitors. This helps us to get to know your dog and their needs prior to them staying with us. Unfortunately we do not accept all dogs, just ones that have the potential to have a positive experience during their stay with us. We also pride ourselves on being one of the cleanest kennels around and have a daily routine that all guests learn easily so their stay will be as stress free as possible.
We offer a Specialized Senior Care program for aging dogs and guests with special needs. Animal environments are often exhausting for the geriatric crowd and/or a dog that has a medical ailment. The Specialized Senior Care program is designed to minimize the stress on these particular guests. Visitors in this program have a personalized daily routine based on their individual needs. We also have training in caring for pets with difficult medical ailments and are able to understand the limitations that they may have. Families with concerns about their pet's well being, can rest assured as Dandy Acres Animal Hospital is right next door.

All guests of our facility must be non-aggressive towards people and other animals. It is our goal to have all visitors out of their kennels for the majority of the day, therefore our daily routines do not work for unsocial animals.
All guests must be spayed or neutered by 6 months of age.
Holiday Lodging requires confirmation and pre-payment 2 weeks prior to the visit. These are prime booking times that are sought after by our clientele. This helps us to make sure any availability is filled prior to the actual holiday. Unfortunately we do not offer refunds on holidays pre-payments. The times of the year that are included in this are:
Spring Break & Easter
Fourth of July
Christmas & New Years
Although we love all dogs at The Dog Lodge, we do have some limitations on the breeds that we can accommodate. We do not socialize some of the powerful breeds which include, but are not limited to:
Pit Bull Terriers
Wolf cross dogs
and/or mixes of these breeds
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we have determined that we are not designed to properly handle these powerful breeds of dogs.
Dogs and cats don't like unnecessary loud noises any more than humans do, with the exception of Heavy Metal rock music fans! We take many steps to muffle and eliminate noise and reduce barking for our patients and guests, our staff, and our neighbors.
