A Vacation For Them…

Peace of Mind for YOU!

Dog Boarding Defiance – Your dog deserves the best! We provide world-class dog lodging in Defiance, OH.  There is something for every dog at The Purple Dog.  All dogs receive loving care from our trained and compassionate staff.

Your Dog is Unique

Your dog is unique, so we are sensitive to their emotional and physical needs. We can best prepare for these needs by monitoring your dog during their complimentary, 4-hour temperament test. (Only required if they are participating in group play.)

Dogs from the same family can bunk together or separately.  Our rates include our popular Doggy DayCare.  However,  if your dog prefers privacy, we also give the option of just chilling in their spacious room with private play times.  Some of our additional services and perks available during your dog’s stay include orthopedic beds, activities, special treats, one-on-one time, and dog bathing.

Your dog is welcome to come but it’s not required.  We really want to get to know your dog as you know him/her, so we can customize the best stay for them.  We’ll answer any questions you have and make it a snap to book your dog’s first stay with us.  You can see first hand how much FUN all the dogs are having and how our professional staff takes extra care to make your dog feel at home!  Getting to know us in advance can really help your dog feel more comfortable while you’re away!
