We brought our dogs to Dog Haven for boarding for many years and were very happy with everything. When Tracie sold the business to Chris, we were a little nervous about a new owner and change, but we are very happy with the Nine Mile Pet Lodge. Chris is so personable and absolutely loves our dogs! He has years of experience as a trainer, and has worked with our dogs several times. The facility has continued to be top notch, has a homey neighborhood feel, and is staffed by professional, dependable, caring people. Our two labs are always taken excellent care of, and enjoy the interaction with Chris and his staff. I never worry about them when they are at the Pet Lodge. I have complete confidence in Chris and his staff. We feel so lucky to have such a great boarding facility so close to home, and are fortunate that Chris wanted to move here to take over the business from Tracie. We consider him a friend, to us and our pets. Thanks for everything, Chris!             Tom C.


We love the Nine Mile Pet Lodge! Our dogs have always been very excited to see Brittany when we arrive! Our dogs, Bell and Louie, used to stay together there and they even gave our old Bell special meals and meds when needed. Sadly, our sweet Bell passed away. Louie was a little unsettled at the Pet Lodge without his best friend. Chris and the wonderful staff decided to put one of the employees dogs with Louie every day of his last two stays. It sounds like it made all the difference. Chris said, Louie was happy and playing as long as he had that buddy. We are so thankful to have such a great place to take our dogs when needed!

Chris and his staff have been incredible taking care of my dogs and helping me with obedience training. The place is super clean and does not even smell like dog inside the kennels! I drive by a dozen other boarding kennels on my way to drop off my pups because I know they will be taken care of and will give me a report on how my pups are doing. My dogs are super excited when we pull up and they hear Chris's voice! I give them my highest recommendation.

Friendly staff and owner! My two Goldens were happy when we picked them up!

Chris and team at Nine Mile Pet Lodge truly are a second home for our puppy. As we pull up, her tail wags and she can't wait to get out of the car. When we pick her up, she is happy and clean. Chris treats her like his own and we couldn't ask for a better team to look over our pup when we are out of town. From the clean and comfortable facility to the dedicated care of the staff there is no doubt our pup is in good hands.

Chris and the staff have made a smooth transition for two and four-legged clients. In fact, last October they went out of their way to help with my husky, Skippyjon Jones, who was diagnosed with large cell lymphoma while I was out of town. Chris ended up taking Skippy into the vet for me. Everyone loved Skippy up in my absence. I have been bringing my dogs to Dog Haven/Nine Mile Pet Lodge for over ten years. I appreciate the extra love and care my dogs receive. Chris and the staff are family to me and my four-legged family.

My husband and I have been dog owners for many years. After using Nine Mile Pet Lodge for the past 2 years, I can wholeheartedly recommend them for grooming, doggie day care, short and long term kenneling. The staff is friendly and caring. The dogs come home happy and content. When things in life come up, NMPL is an excellent resource in helping to meet the needs of the animals we love. Thank you!   FIVE STARS........
