A Home Away From Home

Your dog deserves loving, professional care while you are away. Whether you have a puppy (6 months or older), an active teen, or a stately senior, we at the Red Fern are committed to providing expert care to all lodging guests. 

We believe every dog is unique and we are sensitive to their unique physical and emotional needs. Whether your pup is high energy or a little anxious, we will work to create an environment where they are comfortable.
