Welcome to IndysDogs,
a very different type of animal!
Offering dog boarding daycare and dog grooming on Indianapolis Indiana's west side just minutes from Indianapolis Int'l Airport. We are a home away from home for your pet, not the old style "boarding kennel" set-up with concrete dog runs.
Dogs are all kept in our home and exercised in the large, securely fenced yard in appropriate groups. Each dog receives individual attention, plenty of outdoor and indoor play time, and treats all at no additional charge. Coming here is a vacation for your pet, complete with cuddle time and tasty treats! Since this is a home setting, your dog will never be left alone! We provide 24-hour a day care not just 7AM to 7PM for a flat rate fee (no hidden surprises at pick up).
We do not believe in big group "play time" due to the high safety risks, but we do give supervised play time to individual households or small groups with similar sizes and play habits with those who have shown us they play well with one another (with owner's permission).
Experience providing care & training for other owners' pets for over 20 years, and Mary, the owner, has been involved in purebred dog sports and rescue work since 1994 and her first job was in Avon Indiana in 1979 working as an assistant groomer.
Unlike most boarding or daycare facilities we do not require your pet be spayed or neutered.
Please download the indysdogs_contract, print, fill out and bring with you to your meet/greet along with your pet’s current vaccination record.
We are certified in Pet First Aid and CPR.
We provide 24 hour a day care, unlimited outings, individual play time with us both indoors and outside (depending on temperatures).
A clean environment leads to healthy dogs! Our dog daycare, boarding and grooming areas are mopped and sanitized three times a day, our outdoor areas are sanitized daily (weather permitting). All linens and bedding is changed daily. Crates are sanitized every morning and indoor pens every night.
To maintain healthy dogs, vaccination and health verification is required, however we do not require dogs be spayed or neutered.
We also utilize doTERRA™ Essential Oils to create a more relaxed environment while also providing additional atmosphere cleansing. For more info on those visit our Earth & Sun doTERRA™ site.
Schedule your pet's overnight boarding, daycare or grooming by calling us at 317.450.1586 or by clicking the button below
We do require that you visit before enrolling for stays with us.
Please schedule a visit with us to ensure we will be a good fit as we do want you and your pet to be comfortable here.
I am highly impressed with the service I received for my dog. She looked like a yorkie and not a chihuahua. I will be back for future grooming.
My dogs didn't even miss me!! They love it there. I will be back!!!!
As usual, Phoebe received the best possible care. She’s always so happy to go and comes home smelling wonderful! I miss her while she’s gone, but know she’s have a wonderful time. Thank you Mary!
Amazing! I love that I have somewhere I can leave my pup and be comfortable knowing he's getting enough play time and attention. He loves it there too!
Hoping that a home environment will help with Gus's anxiety issues.
Mary did a great job with my dog that was a total matted mess. I couldn't work the matts out and I was afraid to cut them out because they went down to the skin in some places. He is evenly cut all over now. You'd never know. My dog is happy and this makes me happy.
Mike came back home happy, clean and smelling really great! Thank you for the service you provided for our baby. You go above and beyond what we would expect. Thank you so much!
I'm so comforted and happy Cooper has a place like this where the atmosphere and people are so loving and knowledgable! It isn't just a place for him to stay but it’s a place where he gets loved and cared for properly. He gets to socialize and learn while having fun!
Zoey seems tired and smells so good. I think she had a lot of play time with her dog friends.
When we turned off Rockville on our way to Indy's Dogs', Phoebe started wiggling with excitement. She had a wonderful spa day and even learned some self-control! Mary is always the best!
Another great stay for Lucky. Thanks for the great care.
Mary takes excellent care of our girl when we are gone. Luna H has been boarding with her ever since she was a puppy. The facilities are spotless and the care is above and beyond. Luna is always a happy girl when she stays with "grandma Mary." Thanks for taking such good care of our Lu, Mary. No one does it better than you! I would recommend this facility to anyone looking for someone to care for their dog!
Mary did a great job with Chocolate! I felt very secure and satisfied with her facility. She responded to my email question and posted lots of pictures for us to look at. Chocolate had a great time! I would trust Mary again for boarding the next time we travel.
So blessed that our family found mary. Another great trip for our girls. Thanks Mary!
Safe, comfortable, loving home for my best friend to relax and be well cared for while he awaits my return. We'd give you 6 stars if we could ;-)
Thank you for taking such good care of Abby while we were gone. She seemed to really enjoy her time at your place.
I am so glad I met Mary. She knows a lot about dogs, she cares and loves them. My dogs love her, one my dogs who doesn't give kisses to anyone beside me actually gave her kisses when I went to pick them up...that explains everything :) I highly recommend Mary!
This was Kiah's first stay. I was completely relaxed on my trip knowing she was in good hands. The pictures they sent showed a very happy girl wanting to play. Would highly recommend Indy's Dogs!
Very knowledgeable about the Greyhound breed. Very nice, professional, and has an obvious love for what she does.
Zoey looks amazing!!! Thank you for always doing such an amazing job!!
Thank you for taking such good care of Lucky while we were away and getting her looking great for coming home with a nice bath & haircut.
As always, Mary was wonderful and so patient with my very active 6 mo old GSD. We will be back for more and have a very well behaved dog just like Mary's own personal dogs.
Mary did a wonderful job caring for our dog while we were away. I say caring because “watching” does not fully capture what she does. It was evident to us that Mary takes great care to ensure that both owner and dog are at ease during the entire process. She sent us pictures and updates regularly and we could tell that our dog was in a very good state (both mentally and physically) when we came to pick her up. We wholeheartedly recommend Mary and we will use her again in the future.
I was very pleased and satisfied with the service received. I felt that my fury family member was well cared for and left in the most capable hands. I would entrust here before considering going to a Petco or somewhere similar. I give them 2 paws up!!!
My doggie loves you <3 <3
My dog was so happy when I came to pick her up. When I have boarded her at other kennels she is in a hurry to get out of there. At Mary's I could tell she was treated well because she was happy to be there.
Layla has been very happy both times we have picked her up from a stay with Mary. She is always clean and brushed when we get her. Mary takes photos that we are able to see, and I can tell that Layla likes her.
Very accommodating with regards to pickup and drop-off flexibility. Layla got to play with other dogs and it was great to get some photos. She was clean and seemed happy when we picked her up. Will definitely bring her back the next time boarding is needed.
I was very impressed entering into Indys Dogs. This isn't just your ordinary in home dog boarding spot. This is truly a home for dogs, even for just dropping off for a day. It is very pet friendly and organized, and leaves you with a safe piece of mind your pup is in good hands. The operator Mary is awesome and very knowledgeable about our canine friends and is a natural dog fanatic! I felt confident this is the place where I want my furry friend to go. Here you get the feeling your pet isn't just a number but a friend. A+++
Mary took such good care of both of my fur babies! I didn't have a thing to worry about while I was gone. They even seemed to enjoy their stay! We will definitely be back.
Toasty is always excited when we arrive and I am always happy to know she is being well taken care of while I am away. I wouldn't take her anywhere else :) Thank you for taking such great care of Toasty, I know she's always in good hands when I leave her there.
Always a wonderful experience. Our dog loves his time with Indys Dogs and is always excited to return for a stay. He was tired from all the excitement and exercise and blissfully slept the rest of the evening once he returned home. Thanks so much, Mary!
The first time we boarded our dog was in a traditional kennel and we were very disappointed. We picked up a dog that was dirty and didn't even act the same as when we dropped her off. If you have a house pet I highly recommend the clean environment and personalized attention that IndysDogs offers. Their business hours are easy to work with as well. Glad we found this place and hope to use their services in the future.
Outstanding "home" atmosphere, clean and attractive surroundings, operated by a true dog lover! I'd give 6 stars if I could :-)
Had a great experience. Our young dog Burly seemed to enjoy his stay and actually had some beneficial behavior training thanks to Mary. Highly recommend.
Best boarding experience we've had! Mary was personable, knowledgable, and available when we contacted her.
Thanks for taking such great care of Otis. You always work with him and he obviously loves being with you! (Shared on Facebook)
Luna Bug loves it there. She gets excited when we turn the corner to the house, she loves all the other doggies and the people who take care of her while she is there. ♥♥♥
No complaints. Very satisfied and I know my dogs are in good hands. Only place I will leave my dogs.
