Our staff is trained in Pet CPR and Emergency Care in case of a critical situation. 

In The Dog House also offers some great retail items for your canine companion. We carry Lupine collars, Mendota slip leads, and Deer Antlers.  Come to In The Dog House to check out our supply!

Clean Dropoff Area

Drop your pooch off at our reception area for an exciting day of play or an overnight stay.  You can also shop for treats and accessories for your canine friend.

Indoor/Outdoor Area

At the entrance to the yard is an indoor/outdoor play area where staff and dogs can get relief from the elements or bask in the sunshine.

Secure Outdoor Area

 Wonderful outdoor area for the dogs to get exercise and be social with their furry buddies.

Segregated Runs


Not everyone wants their precious maltese to play with the neighborhood Rottweiler.  There are separate playpens for different sized animals.

Ample Indoor Space

When it is nasty outside, “In the Dog House” is the place to play.  Your dog can run around for hours safe and sound in the indoor play area.

Avoid Boredom

 Stimulating environment for your dog to engage in healthy activities that will make him/her snooze the night away. [

A one time Application (one per dog) as well as a one time Agreement (one per family) must be completed for all dogs left in our care. Download the application form here and the agreement form here.

To help prevent bloat, we ask that you please feed your dog at least one hour prior to arriving at ITDH.[

Dogs will have a two hour ‘rest-time’ during the afternoon, which allows them a break from the activity and lets them rejuvenate for the afternoon play session.

All dogs coming in for overnight care are required to be left for a 2 hour trial period prior to your booked reservation; this trial period is at no charge to the owner but allows us to meet your pup and get to know their personality before you head out of town.

Medications will be given as directed at no extra charge.  

For overnight Guests, check out time is 11 am.  Pickups made after the designated check out time will incur a half day playcare charge.

ITDH will provide overnight Guests with breakfast and dinner in accordance with the owner’s instructions.  In order to avoid upset stomachs, you are strongly advised to bring your own food from home.  Please bring enough food for each meal your dog will be staying at ITDH plus an extra meal in case your pick up is delayed.  If ITDH provides food for your dog, it will be at a charge of $1 per meal.  Dogs will not be fed lunch unless requsted by the owner.
