Our Services

Pet Day Care

Our driver(s) start to pick up pups from 7:00am - 9:00am and bring them to our farm. They will then run free with their friends in our 12,000 sq. ft fenced in play area until it is time to take them back home. Our driver(s) will leave the farm at 3:00pm to bring back the day dogs.


We work best with you providing a hide-a-key, garage code, door code, lockbox, or allowing us to grab your pup from your yard if nobody is home. This way you can stay on your schedule. We work hard to be as convenient for you as possible. Your pups will ride out to the farm for a day of playing with 20+ pups on a regular day!

We do post pictures and videos of your pups on our social media pages so please follow us!

Boarding

We pick up & drop off same times as our Day Dogs. Your boarding dog will be dropped off in the afternoon of their last day.

Overnight Boarding Pups spend the day(s) playing outside in our fenced in area with all of the other boarding & day dogs. Once the day dogs head home, the overnight dogs get the yard to themselves! Patrick lives at the farm with his 2 dogs so your pups will have around the clock care. Boarding pups sleep in our kennel room in their own individual stall. Our stalls range from 4x4 to 6x6 feet. 


When we pick up pups for Overnight Boarding we will need enough of their food, medicine, and supplements for their duration at Dog River.  

Food is to be labeled and each meal placed in a separate disposable bag. Medicines need to be in original container with instructions from vet so we can avoid any mixups. This will help us immensely in assuring your pup gets the proper care he needs. 


Please no Personal toys, beds, or belongings.  This may cause issues as some pups get territorial over their own stuff from home. We have leashes for transportation.


WE ACCEPT BOARDING/OVERNIGHT DOGS ON HOLIDAYS!

Doggy Baths

Your pups will be playing in an outdoor environment with his friends all day! Reward them with a bath before we bring them back to your home!


We have covered play areas on our property for inclement weather days. However, dogs will still get slightly dirty even on clear days. We will do our best to keep them clean. We thank you for your understanding!



About Us

Dog River Retreat is a Veteran owned and operated farm-style dog daycare and boarding facility in Douglasville, GA, just 35 minutes from Atlanta. Our goal is simple, we let dogs be dogs on our farm while you are at work or on vacation. What makes us unique, is that we come to your home to pick up your dog(s). We then will bring them to our farmland where they can be outside with other dogs in our safe, 12,000 sq. ft fenced in area, while enjoying the natural surroundings with other pups. If the pups are not staying overnight, then we will bring them back to your home at the end of the day! It’s that simple! Unlike other daycares, we offer around the clock care. We have someone on the farm 24/7. We have the open land dogs need for a full workout. It is imperative for dogs to have their exercise and social interaction everyday. Don’t keep your pups inside all day, Let Dog River Retreat pick them up and give them the exercise they need! They will be HAPPY to see our truck!
