Daily Activities

Boarding Activities in Charlottesville

The Dogg House offers each of our guests daily potty walks and daily one on one play time activity providing them with both exercise and fun!  Your pet will be supervised at all times and receive the individual attention and affection it deserves while in our care. We treat each dog as a unique and special individual, taking into consideration each pets needs, personality, abilities, and energy level. 

Play Times

Each of our guests receive daily one on one play time facilitated in either our indoor exercise facility, or our outdoor play yards based on your personal preference (or inclement weather). Our outdoor play yards are held in a completely safe and secure fenced in environment. Our indoor exercise facility is equipped with state of the art recycled rubber flooring and is completely enclosed and temperature controlled. These play times are held in 10 - 15 minute sessions.  Guests that are boarding in our upgraded suites receive an additional daily one on one play time included in their boarding package.

These sessions include but are not limited to:

    • Running
    • Jumping
    • Fetching
    • Frisbee
    • Brushing
    • Cuddling
    • Petting


Daily Potty Walks

Each of our guests receive daily potty walks to ensure they are staying frequent, and we schedule them to be done at different intervals during the day.  Each individual boarding space does have an adjacent area for elimination, and while most of our guests will use those areas to eliminate when they have the urge, some do need the extra potty walks to find their way to our grass or mulched areas to relieve themselves.

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."

Nancy J.

"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."
