We know that the idea of having to board your dog while you’re away can be stressful for both you and your furry best friend.   At Brown Dog University we offer a home away from home, vacation setting in the country, with acres of secure fencing for daily leash free romps supervised by experienced trainers.

Your dog will enjoy basking on the back porch in the summer sunshine, or curling up on a cozy bed in front of the fireplace after a day of play on a rainy day.  Your dogs needs are met 24/7 which helps to eliminate separation problems, and helps your dog to rest more comfortably. 

Enjoy kennel free boarding.  No concrete floors, no loud kennel noises;  Just all the comforts of a home away from home.  Crates or indoor enclosure may used at night time for safety.  Be sure to bring your dog’s clean favorite blanket to snuggle.  We’ll provide the entertainment, social interaction, toys, balls, bed time cookies and all the snuggles they desire.   Dogs that get along with other dogs will have plenty of play time with compatible playmates both inside and out. We limit our in home boarding dogs to a very small number for the most enjoyable experience for your fur friend.  

At Brown Dog University we can arrange to customize your pet’s stay to meet your needs. We are able to accommodate special dietary and medication needs, and can match daily exercise needs to meet the requirements of everything from young pups to the eldest canine senior citizen.
