Boarding Activities in Charlottesville

The Dogg House offers our guests many stimulating activities providing them with both exercise and fun! While at The Dogg House, you, the pet owner determine the frequency of these activities, possibilities include all, on a daily basis to none at all. 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

Our Play Times can be 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 15 minute increments. The cost of this activity is $5.00 per session (maximum of 3 per day).

These sessions include but are not limited to:

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

Urban Walks

We are excited to offer our guests Urban Exercise walks. These wonderful adventures take advantage of our neighborhood trails and wooded areas behind our facility. They do however require the movement of your pet outside our facility’s fenced environs. An evaluation of your pet is necessary for this activity. The cost of this activity is $6.00 per session (maximum of 2 per day).

Senior Care Package

For those dogs that have reached their elderly years, The Dogg House offers a special daily care service to keep your older dog(s) happy while boarding.  When your dog is signed up for the Senior Care Package, they will receive multiple daily sessions outdoors on leash with one of our highly trained staff members, a premium therapeutic bed to relax on, and a mid day gourmet treat service daily.  Each outdoor session consists of a short leash walk to get up on their feet, out for a stretch of their legs and a potty break.  The Senior Dog Package is a daily fee of $10.00 and is a service offered for qualified dogs only.  If you are not sure if your dog will qualify for this service, The Dogg House will determine that after assessing your dog's needs and abilities.

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."
