PET NATION LODGE BOARDING


We know that it can be an emotional experience to leave your pooch behind while you head out of town. You shouldn’t have to worry about your dog's well being while you’re away.  This is the very idea that Pet Nation Lodge was founded upon – a Boarding Facility that provides you with peace of mind while you're away; providing an engaging, fun, and, safe boarding experience for your dog.  Our staff will ensure that your pup is surrounded by love and attention until you're happily reunited. There are few greater feelings in life then to return to a happy pooch who's missed you.  That's what we strive to accomplish here everyday.


The experience you dog receives while boarding here at Pet Nation Lodge is more than just staying the night.  During the day your dog will not be just sitting in a lodge waiting to be brought outside every couple of hours.  They'll be mixed in with our daycare dogs and will have a chance to make new acquaintances and become more social.  Dog Boarding at Pet Nation Lodge is a great way to not only know your dog is happy and healthy, it's also a place where they can come to learn to be more experienced in interacting with new dogs.
Here at Pet Nation Lodge, if your dog is boarding with us we do our very best to make sure they come away with a friend or two.  Through our temperament testing process we'll learn about your dog and will match them with a group that will best suit their energy level and personality.  This way we can make sure when your dog is out playing we never have to worry about their safety.
Dog Boarding at Pet Nation Lodge is a great way to get your dog accustom to being around new dogs and new people.  This will not only make your dog less anxiety prone but will also make them happier.  Being around other dogs and being social is a great way to ease some of the fear that an owner might have when bring their dog into a new environment.

So Why Board at pet nation lodge?

The experienced care you and your pet will receive here at The Lodge is undeniably the best.  We are family owned and operated, not a corporate franchise.  We're driven by passion not profit.  So we may never be as large as our corporate competitors, but that's really okay for us.  Knowing the names of our customers, human and animal, allows us the opportunity to provide the very best in service.  We also really like dogs though too.  They're pretty neat.     


While boarding at Pet Nation Lodge your dog won't be cooped up in a cage all day.  Not only do we never put a dog in a cage we also do our very best to keep your dog out of their lodge's.  While boarding we will, at the very least, get your dog out of their lodge's at least five times a day.  Having them out and about, and burning off some energy is best for all parties involved.  We just want to make sure they're getting the exercise they deserve.

PET NATION LODGE DAYCARE


Working long hours and want to go home with a happy, relaxed dog?  Let your best friend burn off some energy and make new friends at Pet Nation Lodge's Daycare Facility!

If your dog is restless, lonely, or just plain bored; quality daycare is a wonderful solution. Pet Nation Lodge is a safe and inviting place for dogs to get that extra affection and stimulation they need. In addition to that, our team is practiced at accommodating a wide spectrum of animal dispositions.  We understand that every dog is unique in their own special way, so we create a specialized environment that will best suit your pet's needs.


Here at Pet Nation Lodge we believe that it isn't healthy for a large numbers of canines to gather together for extended periods of time with no structured rest periods.  Our groups are rarely over 12 dogs.  What makes us so unique is that we match dogs with similar temperaments, age, and sizes.  Then, once placed in a group, we rotate them throughout the day making sure each and every dog gets the most amount of playtime as they can.  

After an ample amount of play time, our daycare guests get their own private suite for rest time.   Not enough rest can be dangerous for canines as it lowers their immune system.  A good rest interspersed with active play results in a perfectly relaxed pet.


WHY CHOOSE PET NATION LODGE

  • Daycare provides physical activity, exercise, and stimulation; especially important for young, high energy dogs
  • We help build confidence in dogs that might be timid or fearful
  • Our indoor and outdoor play areas are always monitored to ensure group synergy remains positive

PET NATION LODGE GROOMING


With over 20 years of experience, Pet Nation Lodge's Certified Groomer has extensive knowledge in all aspects of Grooming.

Grooming is a vital part in the well-being and healthiness of your pet which can improve their lifespan.  All Breeds require daily grooming, how much depends on the breed, age, or health of the pet.  Regular grooming helps to ensure the dog is healthy and comfortable. It is important to note that while many dogs shed, others (such as the Poodle), do not shed as profusely, and require grooming by a professional every 6–8 weeks maximum.


Some of the main reasons for grooming pet regularly:

  • General cleanliness of the dog
  • Decreased chance of various health problems, such as thrush, scratches, and other skin problems
  • Monitoring of the dog's health by checking for cuts, heat, swelling, lameness, or changes in temperament, all of which could be indicative of illness
  • Reducing infestation load of external parasites on skin

I was once barely able to see through my fur. Being a dog, that can make chasing squirrels horribly difficult. But the Groomer here touched me up really well, and gave me this sweet pink Bandana. 10/10 would Recommend.
— Charley

I’m a brand new dog!! With a proper diet and exercise you can turn things around. The Full Groom I received at Pet Nation Lodge may have helped a little too.

Okay the Full Groom helped a lot. It was mostly the Groom...
— Cici

We are so very happy with our Grooming Session!! We feel like brand new dogs. Ready to face the world and anything it can throw our way!!

Well, except vacuums...

CINCINNATI’S ONLY DOG DOCK DIVING POOL! 

Dock Diving.jpg

HOME OF THE TRI-STATE DOCK DIVING CLUB

Swimming Fun For Any Dog - Any Age - Any Owner

If your dog loves to run, jump and swim, he just may have what it takes to be a diving dog!

A Fun Sport for Your Dog to Jump into

If your dog loves to run, jump and swim, he just may have what it takes to be a diving dog. This relatively new dog sport has become very popular. It combines four of a dog's favorite activities, running, jumping, fetching and swimming, with one of man's favorite things, competition and whose dog can jump the farthest?

If you have never seen dog diving (aka dock diving), it consists of a dog, a handler, an object to fetch, a 40-foot dock or stage, and a long body of water. The dog sits at the far end of the stage, awaiting the signal from his handler. The dog runs at full speed to the very end of the dock as the handler throws a fetch toy out over the water. The dog jumps in pursuit of the toy. When the dog splashes down, his distance is measured where his tail hits the water. The dog retrieves the toy and swims back to his handler (for a very enthusiastic good dog!). The distance these dogs can dive is amazing and it's not uncommon to see them jump 20 feet in a competition.

Pool Information

Can Any Dog Do It?

Absolutely! Any breed (or mixed breed) – Any age can do it.  Many jump off the dock in their first Try-It session, for others, they may need more encouragement to feel comfortable with the dock and water. Dogs having a strong toy drive learn the fastest.

How Do I Learn More?

Pet Nation Lodge is proud to be an affiliate club of DockDogs® .  We will be hosting events at our pool with Kentucky Dock Dogs and Buckeye Dock Dog Clubs during the warmer weather months (spring, summer and fall) as well as “Fun Days” and practices.  To learn more about this exciting new sport, check out www.dockdogs.com.

TRY-ITS $20 (15 Minutes) – Each additional dog from the same family - $10

Schedule a time, or just drop by - first come first serve.  Be prepared to get wet!  First, you will fill out a short waiver, provide proof of vaccination, and pay.  Then an experienced member of our team with help you introduce your dog to our pool, dock, and ramp gradually and gently.  We start by encouraging the dog to enter and exit the pool via our RAMP – we don’t start with the dock itself.  Using toys, the dog begins to chase and retrieve them in the water from the ramp. Typically, as confidence grows, the dogs get more excited about chasing the toy, and less concerned about the new environment.  When the dog reaches a very comfortable level with swimming and lunging off the ramp after the toy – THEN we try the dock. *Required for Private Splash W/O Trainer

 

OPEN DOCK - $30 – Call for 2019 Hours - $15 Each Additional Dog from the same family

PRIVATE SPLASH – Without Trainer $40 (30 min. by appointment).  $10 Each Additional Dog

*A Try-It Orientation Splash is mandatory to make sure your pet can exit the pool safely, swim comfortably (life vests are always allowed), and is not in any visible stress or pain.  After successful evaluation, you and your dog can swim, jump and retrieve to your hearts’ desire.  You can even work on rehabilitation from an injury.  No waiting your turn, no interruptions.  This is your time on the dock.  Reservations required.

PRIVATE SPLASH – With Trainer $50 (30 min. by appointment).  $10 Each Additional Dog
