Dog Boarding

Get the Peace of Mind That Comes With Great Dog Boarding

When you must go away, choosing someone to care for your dog can be stressful. You want to know that your pet is safe, well taken care of and happy. At Lucky Dog Pet Lodge in Bloomington, we understand how owners feel. That’s why we take dog boarding so seriously. Our experienced staff provides the best possible care for dogs while their owners are away.

Dogs stay overnight in comfortable XL crates or larger suites. Pets from the same family are welcome to share suites. Need more space? We also offer an 8’ by 10’ VIP suite so your pups can have all the space they need. And unlike other pet lodges, our boarding rates include nine hours of daycare play at no additional cost.

Day in the Life of a Lucky Dog

Wondering what your dog will be doing while you are away? Here’s a day in the life of a dog being boarded at Lucky Dog Pet Lodge:


A day in the life of a dog at Lucky Dog Pet Lodge starts early. Our experienced staff arrives and lets out all the dogs. We let the dogs out to go potty, and then give them plenty of time to eat breakfast comfortably in their suites.


Dogs are brought onto the daycare floor to play with their friends—and get lots of love and attention from our caring staff. When the weather allows, dogs run outside, soak up the sun, splash in pools or do whatever they’d like in our huge outdoor play area. Did you know it’s the largest in the Twin Cities? It’s also covered in specially designed K9Grass that’s nontoxic and anti-microbial.

Of course, your dog will have unlimited access to fresh water, potty yards and comfortable beds to lie on all day. Indoor and outdoor play spaces are also supervised by our experienced staff members. And you can watch your dog play on our live webcams.


Boarding dogs are brought back to their suites, where they relax until dinnertime.


Dinner is served at about this time, and dogs are given plenty of time to eat and rest before being turned out again.


After eating and resting, dogs are let out one more time for a potty break before returning to their rooms for a good night’s sleep

Every dog’s stay can also be customized for naps, lunches, baths, treats, nail trims or whatever you would like to ensure your Lucky Dog goes home happy and healthy.
