Why choose the Doghaus?

We currently offer boarding services to existing clients as well as direct referrals from existing clients. This ensures that we can expect consistency in the type of dogs that we are keeping in our facility (i.e. dogs that we know very well, that were likely born here!). 


We are not accepting new clients that are not current customers or direct referrals at this time.

🐾What is "boutique dog boarding?"

Quaint, quiet, custom.  That is how we have designed our facility and your dog's stay experience.  You will notice that we don't offer many "add-ons," or "activity packages."  This is because we don't feel that we need to charge extra to ensure that each dog receives personalized care and attention.  Our facility caters to 4-6 overnight guests maximum, which means more time for playtime and belly rubs.

🌞Why charge by the day?

Most facilities charge by the night, however, they have strict drop-off and pick-up windows.  We do not.  We schedule drop-offs and pick-ups between 7am-7pm every day.  We do not book overlapping stays when we are full to avoid having to shuffle dogs around during pick up and drop off.  We completely bypass the stressful, noisy, cumbersome process of dealing with designated office hours by eliminating the drop-off and pick-up time windows.

💲All-Inclusive Pricing

Our all inclusive daily rate includes feeding owner provided meals and administering owner provided supplements and/or meds, a minimum of three potty & play session per day (but usually so much more), and all of the personalized comfort your dog needs during their stay.  We even offer complimentary Pupsicles on hot days--plain pumpkin and plain yogurt frozen inside 4 inch marrow bones or hollow cow hooves.  Yum!

🛁Add-On Services That Are Actually "Extra"

We only offer two add-on services that incur additional charges: professional grooming, and trail walks in our 30-acre lake park.  We don't want our customers to feel guilty for not purchasing add-ons.  Every single dog will receive complimentary one-on-one snuggles and attention daily, and will be cared for according to his individual needs at no extra cost.

🏠Luxury Suites Become the "Norm"

Our small facility boasts private indoor climate controlled kennels that are attached to private outdoor runs, accessible through a private doggy door.  Your dog will have the freedom to choose their environment.  Your dog will not be forced to potty inside his sleeping area if he needs to go in between play times (this is VERY common at facilities without runs like ours!).

🗝️Clean, quiet, and safe

We pride ourselves in keeping a clean and tidy facility at all times.  All runs, indoor and outdoor, are disinfected with USDA approved active chlorine (Wysiwash).  Our building is heavily insulated and climate controlled.  We keep the lights low, the A/C on, and classical music playing during quiet time and at night.  Comfort is very important to us, and we work very hard to maintain a high level of positivity and peace inside our facility.  Doggy doors are locked at night from the inside, and the building is locked at night.  We have multiple wifi cameras inside and out, and of course, we live here, too!

Photo Gallery

At night the Doghaus kennel is softly lit with nightlights on the back wall (this photo has been enhanced to appear brighter than it actually is).  Our classical music pairs perfectly with our softly blowing fans and A/C to create a very relaxing sleeping experience. 


Each indoor stall has access to a private outdoor run complete with a sunning deck and artificial turf to potty on.  Our turf is better than grass--we can keep it squeaky clean, and it keeps your pup clean, too!  No mud or dust.


Our indoor stalls are smaller by design.  They aren't designed for playing and exercising--they're designed for rest and relaxation.  Dogs staying with us get plenty of outdoor playtime, individually or with a group depending on each dog's preferences and behavior.


Each stall is clearly labeled with each dog's information including name, emergency phone number, and other important notes like feeding amounts, favorite playtime activities, and favorite scratching spots.
