Holidays fill up fast. Reserve your dog’s suite today.
We are located within an hour of Northern Virginia and the Washington, DC metro areas. We are very close to Warrenton, Virginia and Culpeper, Virginia. Our pet resort is located in the town of Amissville in beautiful Rappahannock County, Virginia. When you cannot take your dogs with you why not keep them at a place that is like home? It is their vacation too.
Our dog boarding facility is 300 feet from our home so we are always close by. Each roomy suite has a window and door offering views of the local countryside. We have a small, dedicated local staff that get to know your dog’s preferences.
We can accommodate older dogs and dogs needing more care. We do not charge extra for administering medicine that can be put in their food in a pill pocket, cheese or canned food (please no peanut butter!). We do charge extra for administering injections.
We ask that you bring your own food, treats, play toys, personal things and beds (optional) for your dog(s) so they will feel at home and will not have tummy problems from new food.
We also offer dog walks and visits, and visits for cats in Amissville, Virginia between 9 am and 5 pm. Read more here.
We are proud to be members of the International Association of Canine Professionals.
