Welcome

Welcome to 3 SCHIPS AND A GIRL CANINE LODGE! Here at the Lodge we cater to small dogs (our “Campers”) who weigh 25 pounds and under and are no more than 18 inches tall. We strive to give our Campers the very best vacation and daycare experience possible. Our motto at the Lodge is “let’s have fun!” Our special Lodge features a rubber-matted indoor playroom to make the best of rainy days and our securely fenced outdoor play yard (almost 100% artificial turf) has plenty of space for Zoomies, wrestling, fetch, chase, a wading pool in the summer, a sandbox, and more.

The CANINE LODGE welcomes Campers for daycare as well as for overnights of any length. Before visiting the Lodge, a meet-and-greet is required to evaluate your dog’s temperament to ensure a happy and safe visit. All Campers will receive one-on-one attention, ample play time, nap time, and much more! Here at the Lodge we strive to address each Camper’s needs for a relaxing and stress-free visit.

Older Campers are welcome too! If their idea of having fun is lying in the sun and dreaming, we will make sure they have a nice comfy (and undisturbed) spot to do so.

At the CANINE LODGE, we incorporate basic manners and behavior training via games and positive-reward methods. We provide daily report cards for every camper too!
