About The Lodge

We are a locally-owned facility where your pet will receive lots of attention. We have brought together some of the most knowledgeable pet experts in the area and we pride ourselves on getting to know each dog.  We are passionate about the work we do and enjoy spending time with the dogs that come into our lives.

We offer boarding, grooming, daycare, training, and -- a first for the area - a swim center just for dogs. The Lodge is the home to the first totally enclosed inground swimming pool for dogs in East Tennessee. It is heated and ready for year-round use.
