Resort style recreation and relaxation for dogs in the greater Doylestown area
Research from the pet industry clearly demonstrates the more activity and human interaction pets receive, the happier and healthier they are–especially when away from home. You can choose from a variety of activities that provide exercise, socialization, one-on-one time with the staff, pampering in the spa, and relaxation.
We have numerous, discounted activity packages or you can customize your dog’s resort itinerary. Speak with our Reservation Specialists to choose the best dog boarding activities for your dog’s health and happiness.
My husband and I never leave our dog Danny. Recently we had to go away for the weekend so we boarded him at Holiday House thanks to a recommendation. He got special attention like soft bedding, special meals, extra walks, extra play group time, a special tuck in and grooming. Danny enjoyed all the attention. Thank you for a safe, clean and fun place!
If your social dog loves playing with other dogs, then our supervised group play sessions are a great way to make new friends, and romp and play outside. Each play group is designed for dogs of similar size and energy. From free play to a game of fetch or Frisbee, everyone has fun!
It’s important to keep all our guests healthy and safe, so dogs must be neutered/spayed, have all required vaccinations, and free from signs or symptoms of sickness or disease to participate in group play or daycare while lodging.
Our resort is set on 50 lush acres of grassy fields, tree-lined paths and babbling brooks to explore. This extended walk is at a brisk pace and wonderful for active dogs that enjoy a longer hike to discover all that nature holds. Nature walks are also perfect for dogs that have been put on a veterinarian-recommended exercise program to promote a healthy weight, increased cardio stamina or improved muscle tone and strength.
When dogs prefer taking a stroll to find just the right grassy spot, the business walk is perfect for a little exercise and refreshed feeling. Business walks can be scheduled for times when your dog is used to getting outside with you.
Some dogs prefer to play fetch or tug-of-war with an individual. Private play sessions provide personal attention customized with the games and level of exercise that your dog enjoys most. There is a variety of toys to choose from, including agility equipment for active dogs that desire more structured play and to be kept busy.
During the warmer months our pools are open and filled with fresh, cool water for playing and splashing with other resort guests or for a private party. Lounge in the pool or sunbathe after a quick dip—it’s a favorite way to relax on hot, humid days.
Clever Canines Program
Lodging guests have the opportunity to participate in our unique enrichment program as an add-on to one of our Activity Packages.
Activity sessions in the Clever Canines program include:
- Ball and Retrieval Games
- Nose Work
- IQ Testing & Brain Testing Games
- Treat Games
- Brain Puzzles & Mental Stimulation Puzzles
Please ask the Reservation Specialist about adding one of these activity options to your activity package.
A gentle touch along tired muscles is a great way to feel rejuvenated for more playing. The comfort of resting on a plush mat with warm hands calmly petting the body, getting a belly rub or scratch behind the ears is simply luxurious. Doylestown Veterinary Hospital also offers acupuncture and cold laser therapy sessions to help improve circulation and mobility for dogs experiencing stiffness along the back or in the legs due to arthritis or as part of a veterinarian-recommended physical therapy program.
If your dog is crazy about cuddling, then snuggle time is the perfect quiet interaction. What could be better than curling up on a cozy lap or getting showered with hugs and kisses?
Tuck-in Story & Gourmet Treat
A bedtime story is a relaxing way to end an active day. Stories have included the adventures of Clifford the Big Red Dog and Curious George to settle into a restful night filled with sweet dreams. Our gourmet treats are scrumptious and specially-prepared, seasonal tastes. A few of our favorite treats include beef stew, ground turkey meatballs, fresh vegetables and organic yogurt.
