About Dogstown University
Dogstown University is a state of the art doggie daycare and boarding facility. Our unique campus was created for canines to play, socialize and learn in a safe, clean and supervised environment. From the moment you enter our lobby, you and your best friend will be welcomed as a part of the Dogstown University family.
All new canines will experience a freshman orientation day on the Dogstown University campus. During orientation, your dog will be introduced into either the big dog or small dog pack based on his/her size, age and temperament. Your dog will then be taken on a tour of our campus.
The Dogstown University campus consists of a large Astro-Turf playground with a water misting system, motorized awnings and industrial fans all meant to insure the comfort and safety of your dog. Pet-friendly ramps, tunnels and bridges on the playground will allow your dog to explore his or her ability to play, hide and play chase with other dogs during doggie daycare. If your dog really loves the water, the playground has paw and bone shaped wading pools for cooling off. The Dogstown University campus also has a large indoor play area with air conditioning, UV sterilizing bulbs and an air purification system to maintain a clean, cool and comfortable environment where your dog can play and relax.
Every member of the Dogstown University faculty is truly a dog lover. They have the knowledge and experience to make your dog’s time with us a positive, fun and stimulating experience. We encourage you to visit us for a campus tour and to meet our faculty.
If your dog attends Dogstown University, you will be able to watch him or her on our high definition camera system which can be easily accessed on your IPhone, Android, IPad or tablet 24-hours a day. The Dogstown University experience is about giving you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your dog is being cared for in a safe and friendly environment.
🐾🐾🐾💙 (Best place ever, according to Max!)
Can we give six stars? Max is our second family member to be a ‘student’ at DTU, and he loves it as much as Bauer did. From his first visit as a pup a year and a half ago to today’s visit, he comes home thoroughly exhausted from his hard day of play. As soon as he realizes it’s a school day (when we pack his bowl) he is at the door wagging his tail and we cannot get to the car fast enough. We know he is safe, engaged with and above all loved by the DTU team. Max is well socialized thanks to his time there and we always recommend DTU to anyone wanting their dogs to get excercise or if needing a place to stay. It’s a clean, safe, fun place, to Max it’s his other home and the entire staff are his other family. 🐾🐾🐾💙
My Boston Terrier loves going to Dogstown University. The staff are the best - friendly, caring and committed. Thank you for taking such great care of Dexter. I wouldn’t take my dog anywhere else.
Most Upscale doggie boarding
We have been using Dogstownuniversity for about 6 months now, I cant ever say that ive been displeased with the staff or the facility. If you need a safe and comfortable place for your pet to stay, I 100% recommend Dogstownuniversity.
Staff are the best, excellent care for my dog
What a great place! We've been coming here almost daily for 2 years and my dog loves it. They take care of him as though he is their own pet, staff are great, always accomodating, clean and well maintained facility. I can't say enough good things about Dogstown University and the DTU team. So glad we found this place, we'd never go anywhere else.
A Home Away from Home
My German Shepherd is my second child and I don't trust his care with just anybody. I'm able to have peace of mind knowing Dogstown University is around the corner ready to care for my baby whenever I have a family emergency that requires me to go out of town. They adhere to my feeding guidelines and give my dog all his supplements, knowing what a troubled stomach he has. The employees all fawn over my dog and he eats up the attention. Whenever I want to check in, they always receive my call with welcoming grace, but mostly I just use their HD cameras to see how my baby is doing. My dog always comes home happy after his time at Dogstown University and goes straight to his bed to take a nap! He has so much fun there it wears him out.
Best In The Business
I have been using there services for about 8 years now, and couldnt be happier! I highly recommend Dogstown to anyone who wants to feel comfortable when leaving there pets there.
Unbelievable doggie care
Brought my havanese in for 3 long weekends this month when I had to travel. I had peace of mind with the web cameras while I was away, and saw that he was given so much love, care and quality attention in my absence! So grateful for the staff at Dogstown University, I will absolutely bring my boy back!
It's the only place I'd take our little girl!
I can’t say enough about how great Dogstown University is. As someone who kennel's our dog frequently it’s a great comfort to know she is there when we’re gone. The staff is amazing and I know they care for our pup like she was theirs. The ability to access their cameras and get a glimpse of her while traveling is a total bonus. I wouldn’t take our little girl anywhere else!
Best daycare and boarding!
My Lucy lives DTU! She's been going to daycare and boarding for almost 9 years. It's her second home. Great staff! Iris and Adam are very hands on owners and have always accommodated any special needs for my Lucy!
We have been boarding since they opened for about 10 years. I will not board my baby with anyone else. The team is professional and knowledgeable and caring. I trust them explicitly. They make special accommodations for my elderly pet (16 plus year oldwith disabilities). I always feel confident in their skills and judgement concerning my pet and comfortable that he is getting the best care. I love this place.
Best place for my “child” lol
We have been sending our adorable Cavachon puppy to Dogstown for almost a year. We use them three days a week to socialize Jett, and get him tired, haha! They are the best!!! Also, they have cameras so I can watch my puppy play. They are all dog lovers and it shows with their compassion.
Best boarding around!
Although I’ve not board our dogs in a while, we used to go there for day care and boarding on a regular basis. Facility is spotless and always kept clean. Love the fact that you can view your pets remotely. I would highly recommend. L
The BEST Place for your Dogs!!!
Dogstown is truly the BEST place to leave your Pet while away on vacation or just for the day. Everyone there is so caring and makes every attempt to make your pet's experience a great one. They treat your pet as you would hope for.... Truly, a "Class" Operation. Thanks for everything!!!
Professional, friendly staff, took good care of our Cat
Required to evacuate during Hurricane Matthew (fall 2016), I needed to find a place to take our cat. At that time, Dogtown had a special small room containing cat condos where they boarded a limited number of cats. When I arrived, the staff treated me with great sensitivity as they could see I was nervous about leaving her. They complimented her beauty and reassured me that she would be fine. Thee days later, when I returned to pick her up, she was her old self and I was able to breathe a sign of relief. Besides all of the above, I was impressed that they would not take a cat without a full clean bill of health. My vet had to fax portions of her medical record to Dogtown for them to agree to take her. It was good to know she would be similarly protected from exposure to illnesses carried by the other boarders.
They understand dogs
Can't say enough good things about DTU. My dog is my family and when he is there, they treat him like he is part of their family. The staff are professional, responsible, and really care about my dog...and me! You can trust them and count on them to always be there and take great care of your dog. It's great with the camera set-up and they are always patient when I call to check-in from out of town. I don't know what we would do without Dogstown University.
Loved it here! They treated my pup great! The best part is he’s always on camera so I can watch my pup and see how he is treated... and maybe just creep on him because I miss him haha. He came home a tired and happy boy and seemed to have met a lot of pupper friends!
Myself and my two deaf girls love Dogstown. In fact, they are crazy "can't wait to get out of the car" happy. I never have to worry about being called out of town, knowing I can bring my girls to Dogstown. I truly have peace of mind knowing my girls are in a safe, professional, well run establishment. I have been bringing my girls here for at least 3 years for doggy day care as well as having them for overnight stay. The owners and staff take great care of making sure everyones furry family is well taken care of. And when I have a moment, I like that I can jump on my app to see my girls from my phone.
Worry free and professional dog care.
Our dog Chancho is very social and loves to snuggle. It’s so reassuring to be away and just check in on him and see him happily playing with other dogs or sitting on his new best friends lap for some lovin’. He always comes home happy and content.
Dogstown University was our go-to-place for our dog Luxi whenever we traveled to visit boat shows in Florida. Our Luxi is very attached to us and we seldom had him stay in day cares. The staff at Dogstown was very understanding and did their best to make Luxi feel at home. We have now moved to Nevada and wish that we could find a caring Dogstown in our area.
Peace of Mind
My puppy Penelope loves it here! I also love being able to check in on her throughout the day using the live feed camera app. She already can’t wait to be back next week!
My go to place
I used to bring my Maltese here for boarding. Always had excellent customer service here and was treated like family. Never doubted that my Odie was in great care. It was a convenient location to drop him off on the way to the airport for an out of trip. I'm not as close as I used to be but will use them again without hesitation when thinking of options to board my new pet.
Nothing but the best!
Our dogs are our babies and we don’t just trust them to anyone. Dogstown is their home away from home. They know when they are close by and start to cry with excitement. They pull us into the facility because they can’t get inside fast enough. This is the only place they do this! They love going here so much that it helps us not feel guilty when we leave them. We know they are well cared for, loved and protected. I recommend this place to everyone. We use both boarding and daycare.
Awesome Boarding/DayCare Facility
It's like leaving your pet with family members :) We've been using DTU for about 10yrs now & wouldn't think of going anywhere else to board our American Bulldog! Very clean and neat facility, which is super important to us. All the staff members are super nice, knowledgable and Really care about your furry friend.
My dogs love it.
They are wonderful and fantastic. Both of our dogs as well as my husband and I are very comfortable having them there for an extended period of time. The staff is terrific and they care for their guests. I never have to worry when we are out of town. Highly recommended.
Dogstown is a wonderful home away from away for our furry friends. The building is superclean , the staff are extremely positive and eagerly waiting to welcome your pet. I love the ability to be able to watch my pet 24hrs a day. This helps to elevate any guilt you feel when you are on vacation. I recommend Dogstown to all of my pet owner friends. Adam and the staff are wonderful “foster parents”!
I found a place where I can bring my dog who is very anxious when I have to travel.
I don't board my dog Comet a lot because he has separation anxiety but when I do Dogstown University is the place he goes. The staff is very kind and welcoming. They treat him like a regular even though he only goes a couple times a year. Dogstown takes the time listen to my concerns and watches to make sure he is adapting to the pack. There have been times when they have called just to say if you're looking for Comet on the cameras check the front desk area as he seemed a little nervous so he is spending some time up front with the girls. If you're looking for a place for daycare or boarding for your furry loved one and quality service, genuine staff, and a super clean facility are on your list of most haves, Dogstown University is the place to take your fur baby as they have always shown kindness and provided loving care on all his mini trips there.
I feel extremely fortunate to have Dogstown University available for my Ollie
I adopted my terrier mix, Ollie, about 5 years ago. He was 6 months old, darling, kind, intelligent and full of energy. Dogstown was recommended by the trainer I used as an avenue to release his energy. Everyone at Dogstown University was so patient with my little boy while he was in his "wild" stage. I am forever thankful for their kindness and understanding. Ollie still loves playing at Dogstown on a weekly basis. I do believe he would rather be there than at home. It is a perfect place for dogs to play, the staff is wonderful, it is extremely clean and the cameras are a wonderful bonus to the experience. A big "thank you" to all at Dogstown University.
If I had kids, I might actually drop them here to be watched during the day. . .
My wife and I use Dogstown University to take care of our fur babies. The experience for the dogs has been one of consistent pleasure and joy. I know this as when ever we drop them off they are genuinely excited to go and cannot wait to get into the facility to see all their friends (both 4 and 2 legged). When you are in a situation that your most trusted family companion needs watching, you can rest assured that they will come back to you as you left them: whole in body and spirit. D-town (as my wife and I affecteonality refer to it) is the absolute go-to facility for a working professional that needs a safe place to watch over their 4 legged love ones. I travel worry free knowing that they are there -- safe and protected -- as if they were being watched by a family member that I know and trust. This is not a review based upon a one-off usage of the facility but a trusted relationship that spans at this point -- several years.
Best care ever
Our Katie is very difficult and Dogstown makes her comfortable and happy. We are certain that she will be well taken care of and that she is not stressed out when she visits. Everyone here is friendly,warm and very accommodating. We leave Katie with complete confidence knowing how well she will be cared for.
Awesome place for our fur babies !!
Dogstown is just GREAT !! I always feel sad when I have to leave my baby but knowing that I can check in on her anytime of the day or night brings me such peace. The staff is great and they will take care of your baby just like it was their own. Don’t use a vet go to Dogstown for all your boarding needs :)
Loves your dog like you do!
I have a wire fox terrier who is unable to attend group - "he is a terrier through and through". I have him attend daycare and also use Dogstown U for boarding. He is exhausted after day care (which is good as I know he wasn't caged all day) and in perfect condition and happy after boarding. He starts getting excited as we approach the facility, wanting to get out of the car and get inside. The staff always greets him by name, knows his likes and dislikes, and sees that he is taken care of. As a local dog owner for years, I have tried many other establishments, and Dogstown U is #1 for me. I can finally go on vacation and not worry! Great job Adam!!!!
Professional, high quality service!
The best place ever! All the staff is knowledgeable, friendly and they take care of my pooch Tootie, I without a doubt recommend Dogstown University, they are the best! Thank you to all for everything, and most important taking care of my pooch, showing and knowing the love and care you give Tootie, the fact that I know you care for her as if she was your own! What a feeling to have as a pet owner! Super!
Professional quality pet care
Atmosphere is calm , organized and very clean . My dog is older and an occasional visitor . She remembered the facility , willingly stayed & she was relaxed & happy at the end of the day. I am glad to have this quality facility available.
We love Dogstown University!
My dogs always come home happy and well care for after a stay at Dogstown. We never worry about them while they are there. My dogs eat a raw food diet and they are so supportive of that. Highly recommend. Pam Kline
The Best Place for Daycare and Overnight for our dog
Everything about Dogstown University is first class. The place is immaculate and the people who work there are well trained and very caring. They maintain very high standards for their people and the animals who go there. Adam and Barbara are terrific as well as the other employees. They truly care about each individual dog left in their care. Our dog, March, loved going there whether for day care or overnight when we went away. We knew we could count on them to look out for March, be sure we was healthy and address anything that might come up. March has gone there for over 7 years. My husband and I even kidded that if we ever got sick, we would want them to take us to Dogstown University for the best care.
We've been coming here since day 1 and Adam and his crew have been nothing short of amazing.
You were always so good to my Tiger. It is with much sadness I tell you he passed at the old age of 14 years and 4 months. He always enjoyed staying with you. Thank you so much.
Adam is amazing, the sweetest and best guy towards my pups
My pups love going to Dogstown University, their tails wagging and the love and attention they get from the girls is wonderful.
Dogstown University is the go to place for day care and boarding. They are scrupulous in their protocol. All dogs coming in must be healthy and have records to prove it. They are careful to ensure no client's dog will get sick. You can observe your pet on a web-cam if inclined. Since our pets can't tell us how their stay went, you can see for yourself. The staff is caring and compassionate toward animals, its more than a job to them. I highly recommend Dogstown University and feel qualified to make this recommendation as I have been in many boarding facilities. Its a shame people choose places to leave their pets based on the waiting room and front desk. Until you've been in the back of these places, and I have, you have no idea what is going on with your pet, regardless of what you pay.
If you love your dog, here's your place
If you love your dog here's the place that you will feel comfortable leaving them when you have to go away. 24 hours a day you can monitor your loved one on your phone to see that they are well and happy. Our dog is a picky eater but DTU was great about all the special food and treats that we provided. All day long the dogs are well supervised. They love the play areas inside and out. There can't be a better place to leave your pet.
Professional and caring company
Great for the price points. Camera access to see where your animal is at all times. Employees handle all the dogs very well dividing the large from the small and monitoring behavior, rough or gentle to make sure all dogs are safe around each other. My dog is always exhausted when we pick him up from the constant fun he is having. Large building with plenty of amenities to choose from. Would recommend dogstown time and time again!
Caring and Passionate People
From the first time we took Savannah to Dogstown University my wife and I felt comfort in knowing she was in good hands. They are compassionate and understanding and treat each animal with love and respect. Savannah loves going to Dogstown and plays hard every day she is there. Savannah immediately jumps out of the car when we arrive and gives everyone sloppy kisses. Thank you for caring for our high energy puppy as if she were your own.
Best dog day care and boarding in S. Florida!
We leave our dog frequently with Dogstown when we travel. Adam and his staff are the most caring, loving people to the pets they care for. We can watch our dog on their "doggie cam" and see how he interacts with the other dogs in his group. Last time we had to leave for a trip a Cat. 5 hurricane was bearing down on S. Florida. The staff at Dogstown was fully prepared and our dog was safer there then if he was home with us. They are AMAZING!!!!!
Great dog sitters
Loved the place, very professional, very clean and most of all great place.
Best Place to Board Your Pet!
I was a client at Dogstown since they were Preepy Pet. Charlee was a golden retriever and was so happy to go to doggy camp. Sadly, she passed two years ago. Dogstown comforted through my loss. They really loved Charlee. I highly recommend this place. Great staff, great service and they care about their clients. Trust me you won’t be sorry when you board your cat or dog. I miss Dogstown everyday. They treat you like family
Excellent: I trust this place
The absolute best place to leave your dog. Personable staff, great care and facility. I trust them with my dog!
Happy is an understatement blesses more like it !!!!
Hi my fellow furry mommy and daddy's 🐾 Just wanted to share how Bless and thankful I am that I finally found a doggie daycare / boarding that REALLY really Cares for my babies!!!!! Dogstown University treats my dogs like they were their very own pet, their patient , loving and very considerate of my needs about my dogs Max & Cody 🐾 For example : They have a video surveillance camera that you can watch your dogs all day long in group or during nap time . I called and ask if they would give my boys a blanket during their nap and sure enough , 5 minutes later I see on the cameras that not only did they bring them a blanket but actually made them comfortable with it !!. 5 Stars ✨ in my eyes and heart ❤️ Thank You once Again Dogstown University !!!!!! Randi , Max & Cody !!!
We have been boarding our dog Shadow at Dogstown university for over 7 years. We would not dream of taking her any other place. Everyone in the facility are very kind and loving to our Shadow. We drive an hour each way to bring shadow to this facility. She knows when she is getting close because she starts to get excited. She practically drags me into the facility and doesn't even look back to say goodbye. WE LOVE the fact that they have cameras because we be watching our shadow every chance we get. (That's because we miss her so much). We have just recently moved and now we are 3 hours away but we still continue to bring shadow to Dogstown. Until we can find a facility as great as Dogstown University is we will continue to boarder her in dogstown when we go on vacation. We just have to fly out of Ft.Lauderdale. Yes they are a little expensive but well worth the piece of mind.
Friendly, Professional Animal Lovers
DTU is the only place we would leave our Shepherd, Molly overnight. Molly has a bowel disorder and doesn't eat well even when she is at home so boarding has added stress for her. The staff at DTU are wonderful. They are patient and efficient and have no problem at feeding time. We always watch Molly on the webcam at different times of the day when she is at DTU - she loves and trusts the staff, enjoys her time outside and seems to relax and sleep well during the day and at night. It is wonderful to know that DTU is there - gives us tremendous peace of mind to know that Molly is especially well taken care of in our absence.
High quality, professional and caring
I have absolutely have no words to express about everyone at DTU! Everyone is the best! My Tootie just loves being there! They take care of her and all the rest of the dogs! I was scared at first to leave her there...but in no time Tootie felt like she is at home! I bring her to daycare well just about daily and by now everyone expects the Tootie to be there first thing in the morning! n yes she helps to wake up the rest of the pooches...Ha! She is just excited to get there! I am sooooo thankful for the peace of mind they have given me! To know that Tootie is taken care of and loved by everyone! Thank you DTU for everything! I am forever in debt! I and Tootie thank you all! The best place, no doubt I highly recommend!
There's no place like home, unless it's Dogstown University!
We reluctantly left Bauer at Dogstown for the first time about seven years ago, feeling guilty as can be for abandoning our new pup while we attended work functions. We checked on him online and were pleased as can be to see him running around playing with new friends, but after the third day I started to wonder, why was he not missing us? Why is he cuddling up to those dog handlers that way? Is he ever going to want to come home again? I cannot say enough about the love and supervision the entire team provides the animals. Seven years later we know Dogstown isn't just there to help out when we go away, more importantly it's a place that Bauer gets to play his heart out with new and old friends, ensuring he gets the exercise he needs but can't always get in the Florida heat; it's a place he can't get to fast enough on 'school days' whining away in the back seat en route, a place where cleanliness and the health of the pets is a priority and a place where we know his is truly loved. There's no place like home, unless it's Dogstown University!
Dogstown is the best daycare and boarding home for animals
I can't express enough how great dogstown university is. My dog is there every week and I trust them implicitly. She always comes home happy and tired! 🐶
High quality, professional, friendly, the best staff!!
We have been using Dogstown University for years now. We consider them like part of our family. We never, ever have to worry about our animals. They are treated like one of their own. It is a good feeling to know that when you go on vacation your animals are in the best of care. The love, care and compassion that they show each and every animal there is remarkable. Adam, Iris and the rest of the staff at Dogstown University are the absolute best. I would highly recommend visiting Dogstown University so you can see first hand what a wonderful place it is.
Dogstown University has always been our go to place for our dogs. They are well cared for and we never have a problem. The staff is scrupulous about making sure only healthy, well mannered pets board. We leave them and never worry about their stay. Most vet offices whare house pets in cages and they are not kept clean or given the walks promised. At Dogstown, your pets are not sharing space with sick pets. They are treated like guests at a five star hotel.
Dog Town University is a fantastic business , and it's owned and run by some amazing people , when we moved to Florida were very concerned where we would find a good place to board our dog Trooper , someone told my wife about Dog Town University , we found out after visiting the facility that it was as nice as you could ask for , not to mention the owner was from our former home , the staff is very attentive to the dogs needs , they even have a means of viewing your dog on line , for Trooper it's the Country Club ,, I highly recommend Dog Town to anyone that wants there beloved pet to be pampered and loved in your absence ,
I love Dogstown University
I have been taking my dog Lucy to Dogstown University for many years - both day care on a regular basis and boarding as well. I love everyone that works there - caring, kind, compassionate. Owners Iris and Adam are such nice people - family owned business. Over the years, I have referred many friends and colleagues to Dogstown who also feel it is a great place to bring their furry friends. In my opinion, DTU is the BEST!
Great staff and facility!
The staff at DTU is great. They really care about your pet and take great care of all the dogs (and cats)! DTU has great outdoor and indoor areas for the dogs to play and the runs are spacious and well kept. Highly recommend!
