The Canine Clipper
Charlottesville and Surrounding Counties Premier ALL INCLUSIVE Pet Lodging
The Canine Clipper is proud to offer a kennel alternative. Large fenced yards with real grass give your furry friends a place to run, be free, get plenty of playtime and exercise. Premium Kuranda cots are provided for each guest and many can be found sleeping the night away in our home, on our couches and even in our beds! We interact with the dogs all throughout the day giving lots of love, playtime, and basic obedience. We do not believe a dog should ever have to use the bathroom anywhere but outside. Therefore, in addition to having fun indoors and out all day, late night and early morning (and sometimes even middle of the night) time outside is provided for all dogs. We live here so we can do that! Our all inclusive rate includes all the things we feel should always be provided to give our guests the best quality care. We wish to ensure health and happiness every stay. Space is limited so each of our guests get plenty of TLC.
In 2017 we are working to add a water area for those dogs that so enjoy a refreshing romp and playground equipment to enhance play time. We also hope to build a bigger indoor play area for those days when the weather outside is not ideal.
We prefer ALL our guests have social time each day with their friends. Therefore, a temperament evaluation is required for lodging and daycare guests. Puppies are preferred to be at least 6 months of age, spayed/neutered and housetrained. Vaccination records for current rabies, distemper/parvo and bordatella are required. Other requirements, issues and questions will be discussed at the evaluation meeting.
The Peloquin Family and our staff are here to help all our guests feel right at home but to keep everything organized and running smoothly and to allow us to make proper introductions for our guests, check in and check out times are as follows:
