The Dawg House makes us feel at ease whenever we have to leave our pup. We know he is safe, cared for, loved, and we are given daily photos and updates. The owners are incredibly kind and genuine and we wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

"Having a dog that can be iffy around new people, especially men, made me worry when it came time to board my dogs. The Dawg House took him in and went slow with him. Now I don't worry when i leave him there. They have taken great care of my Maverick and Poppy every time! I am grateful they are willing to work and have patience with my "difficult" dog.

Andi Pullum

"When we first moved to the area I was very concerned on where I was going to board our dog after boarding at the same place for many years. I found the Dawg House and decided to book due to convenience of location. I have been absolutely amazed by the wonderful staff and the care they provide. I love receiving updates of our boy while we are away as well! I truly LOVE this place and recommend them to everyone I know or meet!

Rhonda Gipson Garrett

I have been bringing my sweet girl there since it first opened. I can't say enough good about it or about the special owners. The first thing you notice when you walk in is how good it smells...that's continuous hard work. My Ella loves her care givers there. I'm introducing a new pup to The Dawg House this week; I know Ella and Monet will be loved thoroughly during their stay. If you are looking for all your pets needs to be met, plus extra care, The dawg House is the place you want to utilize.

Autumn Howell

We have boarded our dog with The Dawg House multiple times now, and they truly treat her like she's family! We love that they update us with photos on social media; even though we know they do amazing with her, it's still so special to be able to see her while we are away.
We used them for a couple trips we have taken, and when I had our baby. They were so flexible and understanding that labor could happen any time, and they were willing to come up with a plan for us to be able to board her quickly if needed. Our hospital stay was extended after birth, and in the flurry of our child's needs, post birth, they continued to care for our dog while we were handling things with the baby. It was such a relief to know she was in great hands, and they truly went above and beyond during that time to care for our dog but also for us as her owners. 
We can't recommend The Dawg House enough, and we are so grateful they are part of our community!

Dawn Weaver Hansbarger

I sing the praises of The Dawg House to everyone I know who has a furry family member. I started out putting our rescue dog, Harley, in Dawgy daycare to socialize him in a safe environment and it was immediately clear how much he loved being there and how comfortable I was leaving him there. The love, care, affection and genuine concern the "Hoomans" at The Dawg House shower on the dogs is next level! They are truly the nicest and most amazing people I have ever met, and I trust them 150%! Harley and I love, love, love The Dawg House!
