Doesn’t your dog deserve a Stay in the Country?

JUST PUPPIES

A puppy’s experiences help mold him into the dog he’ll be. That’s why we take special care to cater all our services just a bit differently for pups.

DOG GROOMING

Beautiful cuts. Shiny clean dogs. All accomplished with gentle, patient handling. We want your dog to enjoy her time with us—even when she’s having a bath.

OUR BLOG

A great way to get to know us a bit better! We write about all things dog—care, behavior, the funny moments and the poignant ones. And we post some pretty great pictures, too.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“Our dogs don’t know they’ve ever been to a kennel”

“Our Basset Hounds Blanche and Mabel haven't quite figured out that they've actually ever been to a "kennel." Whenever they arrive at "A Stay in the Country" they greet the owner Harriet like they're seeing an old friend.

"A Stay in the Country" is like their second home.”
