Dog'Gone Lover is the brainchild of Auja and Clyde Norman. The high school sweethearts have always been avid animal lovers and travelers. It was important to them that their four legged friends were well taken care of while they were vacationing. Their Beagle, Secret, was the inspiration behind creating a paradise for small dogs who need socialization and exercise or whose owners are away.
While living in Colorado, The Norman's took a quick trip to Chicago for the weekend and left Secret at a very reputable dog boarding facility. Upon their return they found Secret a little shell shocked and very dirty. He had dried drool on his head from some bigger dogs and seemed to be in a daze for several hours after pick up. Unfortunately he had been bumped around a little too much by bigger dogs and wasn't very happy.
Here at Dog'Gone Lover your little dog's wants and needs come first! Small dogs require a different type of attention as most were bred to be companions. The attention to detail for their toys and equipment won't be an afterthought here because we are designed just for them. Whether your fur baby is coming for a day of fun in doggie daycare or spending a week of excitement in our boarding program while you are away , you can rest assured that they will be safe, loved, and having a ball. Because here at Dog'Gone Lover, we love your dog while you're gone.
