Sol Dog Lodge and Training Center

For all dogs and the people who love them™. We are not a rescue, and we are not a shelter. We are a community business and a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that supports families and their dogs.

We provide services to ensure that dogs stay with their forever family and out of the over-crowded and over-burdened shelter and rescue system.

Watch for updates on our construction progress!

Sol Dog Lodge trainers draw upon a variety of methods, a flexibility we believe is critical because all dogs are individuals and deserve to be treated as such. Our goal is effective, low-stress training where we work with the dog’s natural drives and instincts, not against them. The result is a happy, cooperative dog and an enjoyable training experience for all involved.

Sol Dog Lodge is proud to be a small kennel where your dog will receive individualized care and attention. Unlike most kennels that are “unstructured”, we set expectations for the dogs in our care, and ask for and reward your dog for the same good manners you would expect at home. This helps create a calm, structured environment to reduce stress for all the dogs in our care.

Whether your dog needs a bath and brush, stylish new ‘do, or just a nail trim, we’ve got you covered. Our Thornydale location is your new doggie spa destination. All services are completed with care and attention and every safety precaution is taken to guarantee the most positive grooming experience for your pet.

Our New Campus In marana

After years of planning, fundraising, hard work and the generosity of the local dog-loving community, Sol Dog Lodge and Training Center is finally ready to start construction on the boarding, training, and grooming center on four acres in beautiful Marana, Arizona.

Our sincere thanks to all our supporters who believe in Sol Dog Lodge and Training Center and our mission to keep all dogs in their homes with the families who love them.

We broke ground in December, and we will soon begin construction on our Marana campus. We will have expanded capacity for ALL of what we are currently doing plus SO MUCH MORE.

We opened a second location providing training and grooming (no boarding) at 9665 N. Thornydale Road in the Mountain View Plaza.  Both locations work on pre-scheduled appointments for all services.
