About Us

The Dogg House Dog & Cat Boarding

The Dogg House facility was constructed by the Dofflemyer family during 1983, and operated at its current location under a different name until 1993. In 1998 the facility was remodeled and the Dogg House was officially opened under the direction of Barton G. Dofflemyer. Barton’s parents have owned and operated Wakefield Kennel in Earlysville since 1974, and he has virtually grown up in the pet care industry. Barton is a graduate of Virginia Tech and has had a lifelong talent and love for animals and their care. Barton’s dedication and enthusiasm is unsurpassed and he strives to deliver both superb pet care and excellent customer service. 

The Dogg House is conveniently located on Berkmar Drive in the heart of the City of Charlottesville. Please come in and take a tour of our facility, meet our staff and discover why The Dogg House is unrivaled in the pet care industry for its outstanding quality and service.

Daily Progress Reader's Choice Award 2014 #1 Pet Groomer

Mary Knauf Amiss

"The Dogg House staff exhibits a loving and caring atmosphere. Now, our chow-mixed dog,named Bear, loves all the attention and special care that he gets every time he visits. He is always welcomed and treated with such good care. The Dogg House is clean and organized and the prices are very reasonable. I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving Bear anywhere else. I would definitely recommend the Dogg House to anyone who loves their pet."

"I have been very pleased for the last 8 years, they have boarded and cut my cocker spaniel and have groomed my hound dog. I am handicapped and many times they have brought the dogs to my car, instead of me going to the office. They are loving people and they take care to make sure the staff loves animals."

Dolly P.

"The Dogg House staff is professional, organized, caring, careful and friendly. My dogs are not reluctant to go there, and always come home healthy and happy. I could not be more pleased with the service."

Joe Fallica

"We have been taking our dogs Max and Toby to the Dogg House for over 12 years and absolutely love and appreciate the entire staff and are sincerely grateful for the way they take care of us. We have always referred and highly recommended the Dogg House to all of our friends and anyone we know – they’re great!!"

Judy & Tom Rikken

"Our Cocker mix, Ashley, tell us she's been to the spa when we pick her up from being groomed at The Dogg House! She is always so proud of her new 'look' when she comes home. We are, too! The staff is always so friendly and we truly feel they go the "extra" mile for Ashley and for us."
