About us

Our company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.

I started Charlies Friends in April of 2000. My goal for Charlies Friends was for it to be a place your pup wanted to be. Whether they were here for daycare or overnight care they came bounding to the front door!

Your pup will play and romp with a small group of friends in one of our three outside play areas or in one of our five inside play rooms. We will match up your pup with friends who have similar play styles as well as by age and size.

One of our highlights of the day is our walks. Everyone gets out for a walk based on their ability. Our walks are anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hours long in the 100 acres of woods adjacent to the kennel.

At night your pup can sleep in one of our 5'x6' heated indoor kennels. This is a great space if you are still working on crate training or if your pup simply likes their own space. If your pup is the type that feels more comfortable sleeping in a "home room" atmosphere they can sleep in one of our rooms such as the quiet room at no extra fee.

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.

Our Philosophy

We want Charlies Friends to be a place your pet wants to be. We believe in small play groups matching up personalities, play styles, age, and size. Other than rest period your pet will not be in a kennel but either out playing in one of our 3 play yards, 6 play rooms or for a walk in the woods geared towards their ability.
