Luxury, Cageless Boarding



"Joan and her team are quite simply brilliant! As soon as we tell Letty she is going to the "kennelies" she starts wagging her tail and is always excited when she arrives and goes straight to Joan for some love! Most importantly I know she is in a safe, secure and loving environment and is going to be treated like family when she is there. Believe me, my dogs are my kids and I am VERY picky who I leave them with. The doggie suites are always spotlessly clean and Joan is always prepared to go above and beyond for you her customer (she was a great help and support to me with a rescue Rott I had for a while too).
All in all the best place to give your pup a home away from home! (in fact I almost don't want to write this in case too many people find out and then I can't get Letty in!)"  – Helen R.

"We are from Canada and when we arrived in Florida with a one year old puppy who had never been left with anyone.....we found Dog Lodge. We checked it out carefully, leaving Carson there for only a few hours initially. He absolutely loved it and was so excited as we drove back a couple of days later. We subsequently left him there, even overnight, with absolute confidence. We were concerned about his safety near roads as we live out in the country on a lake with maybe three cars passing per day. I shared my concern with the personnel at Dog Lodge and they gave me lots of suggestions re safety training, showed me how to do it at home and I am happy to report he is a very disciplined dog on the road. I cannot say enough positive about them and Carson will be so happy to be back with them this winter."

"Dog House Lodge provides an excellent environment for furry ones! Our sweet Kaylee spent the entire summer there, and had a blast! We have boarded her at several other places in Central Florida, but none compare to the large suites, the play area, the ability to see photos and videos on Facebook, and just the awe-some care that Joan and her staff give. It's about an hour drive from our house, but SO worth it knowing that our sweet girl is in such great hands!"  – Julie H.

"Slider enjoyed his visit so much he was not ready to leave. The dogs have such great spaces to run and play. He loved the beds! Highly recommend if your looking for a place that will love your dogs like they are their own. It's like a luxury vacation for your pup!!! Ours will be back in the Spring! Thanks Joan and the dog house lodge!!!"  – Angela M.

"If you are looking for a place that your furry family member can run, play with their friends, sleep in a comfortable, safe place and be taken care of by a Lady that caters to your doggie's needs...this is the home away from home for your doggie. Our Bella stayed there for July 4th and after my husband picked her up, she was played out and ready to jump up on her couch and sleep. Did my heart good to know that she was having a good time too:-) Thanks Joan."  – Marietta B.

"I cannot say enough good things about Joan, Jes and all the people at the Doghouse Lodge. Our Sage dreaded being away from us. From her very first visit to the Doghouse Lodge we knew we found the perfect place for her to stay while we are away. Joan knows dogs better than anyone. She has helped us with Sage even after her stay there. I highly recommended Doghouse Lodge." – Penny P.

"First visit for our Barley (Yellow Lab) was everything we could have hoped for. Joan took a considerable amount of time to get aquatinted with our dog and share details of the lodge. It's like leaving your pet with a family member. Our new go to! Already have reservations for a return visit next month." – Peter B.
