Boarding at the Dog Spot
Boarding at The Dog Spot is for the pet owner who considers their dog to be an important family member, like I do! I currently own 4 dogs of various sizes and ages.
I know how much I hate to leave my dogs, even to go on vacation and I want to provide a superior experience for both you and your pet with my boarding services!
All dogs are treated as the important family member that I know they are. I promise your dog will enjoy a fun vacation, while you are off enjoying yours.
First Rate Facilities
and bones to keep them busy and I play Frisbee, kick soccer balls, etc. several times during the day, as weather allows.
The buildings are climate controlled and also have an attached fenced area for exercising the dogs as needed. Dogs are exercised every couple of hours and there is no additional charge to play, love or exercise your dog! Rates include everything, even administering medication.
Dog Boarding Policies and Prices
*Proof of vaccinations – We DO accept Titers.
*Bordetella & Flu Vaccine – We do not require Bordetella or Flu, though many vets recommend you have this administered to your dog prior to boarding, since they will be exposed to many new dogs. We leave it up to the owner and their vet as to whether they wish to give this vaccine to their dog. Proof of vaccines will NOT be returned.
Rates (owner provides food)
You will be charged for the day you bring the dog in, no matter what time. If you pick up between 8:00 am and 10:00 am, you will not be charged for that day!
$25.00 per day. We only accept cash or checks for boarding!!!
If they can reside together and share a run, 2nd dog in the same run is $20; 3rd dog sharing run additional $15.
We do require you to bring your own food, as we know it is better for dogs to remain on the same diet as at home. Please portion out each meal into baggies.
If your dog enjoys socializing with other dogs, we will try to match them with other friendly dogs for playtime. If they prefer to just hang out and sun themselves in peace, I will provide that as well.
Please call: 502-538-PETS (7387) to schedule a visit.
A few years ago Carol decided it is time to follow her dream of opening and operating her own dog facility. That dream is the foundation of The Dog Spot!
An avid animal lover since early childhood, Carol has been involved with dog training for over 25 years. She discovered her love for training when she got her first dog and began taking classes at the local dog club. Carol has been competing in obedience trials since the early 1980’s. In 1990, she opened and instructed full-time at Shamrock Acres Training Center until she purchased Invisible Fence of Greater Louisville in 1996. While with Invisible Fence, she trained the majority of the dogs to the fence, which numbered in the 1000’s! Six years later, she sold Invisible Fence and started Alpaca Knights, an alpaca breeding farm in Simpsonville, KY. In 2009 the herd was sold and Carol decided to return to her one true love, dog training! She trains and competes in agility with her border collie and border collie/whippet mix.
Schedule a Visit
You are welcome to call and schedule a visit, but please call first, as I purposely do not have “office” hours, so I can take care of the dogs and I don’t have to worry about missing visitors. I also work hard to keep the environment as peaceful and calm as possible, which is much easier if I know when visitors are expected.
