About Us

 Ivandale Farms Pet Lodge, LLC provides a fun, safe environment for your dogs vacation.  We dedicate ourselves to your pets needs giving personal love, attention and exercise so you can relax on your vacation knowing your family member is in good hands!  Many of our guests have been staying with us for years so it is not uncommon for an arriving guest to be excited and anxious to get outside to see his friends!

 We are best suited for socialized and active dogs.  We cater to small, medium and large dogs and we love them all.   A typical day involves five play sessions with a suitable group of dogs.  In case of inclement weather, we do have a large indoor play area but the dogs usually prefer to be outside.  Dogs also spend some quality time with me in the office just visiting or watching movies.

 As pet owners, we recognized a need for a boarding facility with a home-like environment.  Our size remains small so that we can uphold our mission of providing each pet with individual love and attention.  Our rate is all-inclusive so you will not see additional fees added to your bill for extra attention, couch time, love, exercise nor treats. 

 Our Facility

Situated on 26 acres of wooded farmland in Loudoun County, your dogs vacation destination has walking trails throughout the property adjacent to the W&OD trail, a grassy, fenced outside play area and a large indoor area.

 Each dog is housed in a private suite with radiant heat flooring, elevated beds and soothing music.  Family suites are available for furry family members.  Most suites have a window to the outside.

 What to Bring

 Your dog, his or her food and vaccination information is all that is required.  However, you may want to bring along anything else you think your dog would appreciate having during the visit.  Some people bring snacks, toys, beds or a blanket that smells like home.

 NOTE ON FOOD:  We require you to bring enough food for your dogs to last during his or  her stay.  He or she should have been eating this food for at least ten days prior to the stay.  Try to avoid giving your dog people food before their visit.  We find that switching food for a visit causes undue distress to a dogs stomach.
