Care tailored specifically to your pets

My inspiration for Dogwood Critter Care came from my own frustration at having to leave my personal dogs at boarding facilities, even the best, because even the best boarding facilities are ‘one size fits all options.’ Boarding facilities also lack the quiet comfort of home with soft beds and peace and quiet. Boarding facilities are built to pass NC Department of Agriculture standards which is great and sanitary, but very clinical and not comfortable like home. Even the best boarding kennel is still a business that profits from quantity. As a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers®, even my most confident dog came home tired and stressed. Dogwood Critter Care is a small team based operation that focuses on luxury, individualized pet care, in your home.

There’s no place like home!

Even Dorothy agrees, there is no place quite like home. Why send your best friend to a strange unfamiliar place with unfamiliar smells and sounds, when you can keep them where they are most comfortable with one-on-one attention? We offer overnight packages tailored to your pets well-being, ranging from 9 hours to 22, catering to your furry friends. Our top priority is your pets comfort, happiness, and well-being.
