My dog is a very, very active dog and goes to Lucky Dog for both boarding and day care. I have to travel for work at least once a month so Abraham goes to daycare every day and also boards 3-6 days per month. When he boards, they send a post card with his picture showing how good a time he is having. The staff loves the dogs and Abraham loves each one of them. He has a group of dogs that he plays with regularly and comes home tired and satisfied. I have the unlimited day care pass and a boarding package which makes it affordable to send him every day.

Henry, a 4yo St. Bernard has been going to Lucky Dog for day care for most of his life. He absolutely loves going! It was wonderful for his social skills early on, and it’s always been a clean and safe place to let him play and wear himself out. Dozer, a 1yo Great Dane, is very much still a puppy. Due to his size and high energy level, even hours of playing outside never seem to be enough to really wear him out. He is new to the daycare experience however; he loves playing with dogs and played so much his first time at Lucky Dog that he was still tired the following day! The entire staff is fabulous and I wouldn’t take my ‘little’-men anywhere else! - Jen Smith

"I have been taking my dog to Lucky Dog for daycare 2-3x a week for over a year now, and it has done wonders for both me and my dog. They have the best hours and prices of any dog daycare in town and a huge facility! Not to mention the fact that the dogs are out playing for the majority of the day here. It is very obvious that every single staff member loves dogs and loves their job. I know what great hands she’s in. I really can’t say enough good things about this place, they are amazing!"

Dog Boarding

Checkout the best dog boarding facility in Charlotte!

Vacationing is easy at Lucky Dog! Send your dog to the best overnight boarding in Charlotte. Our staff loves your dog the way that you do.

We understand that being apart is hard, so we make sure that your dog feels right at home, well loved, happy and healthy while you are away. Plus, we open early and stay open till 9pm 7 days a week to make drop off and pick up convenient for you.


Plenty of Playtime is included

We make sure your dog is active!

Unlike some boarding facilities, we don't believe in keeping dogs in a kennel for the majority of the day. And we certainly aren't going to charge you EXTRA to let boarding dogs play in our Doggy Daycare!

Daycare and Playtime is ALWAYS included in our boarding nights. Our approach is to allow a rotation of indoor playtime, rest time and outdoor playtime. We feel this variety in schedule allows for your dog to receive the right amount of rest and play to keep their spirits high.


Our Typical Boarding Schedule


A typical Boarding day and night with us is where they rotate into daycare and rest time all day every two hours! At 5:30pm, after a fun filled day of running and playing, they will be taken back for nap time and dinner.

Typically, around 9pm each night, all boarded dogs come out and enjoy more playtime for approximately 45 minutes to an hour before being tucked into bed. Then in the morning they go out at 6am for their first potty break and setting in for breakfast!


Make your Reservation Today!

Boarding has a flat fee per night per 24 hours. To help with your scheduling, we do allow a four-hour window from drop-off time for the day of pickup, giving you a total of 28 hours before an extended boarding charge of $16 will be applied.

Have more than one pup for the sleepover? Each additional dog is only $22 per night!

Leaving for an extended trip? You can trust your dog with our caring staff and we will lower the rate by $5 per night for the first dog if you are gone for more than seven nights.
