Dogs Love DogPatch Downs.  You Will Too!

After years of experience consulting on and building boarding facilities for other people, Richard Starks realized his dream through DogPatch Downs. "We have taken the best of every other facility we have built over the years and incorporated those functions, features, designs and modalities to create a facility that is one-of-a-kind," says Starks.
Located on six acres of rolling hills and a nature preserve, the secure, fenced-in property is breathtaking. Conveniently located off 441 in the heart of Ocala, Florida, the site overlooks an expansive horse farm.
The indoor dog kennels and runs are climate-controlled with secure outdoor access. The indoor/outdoor kennel runs are the largest in the area, each at 125 square feet. One of the more unique design features of DogPatch Downs helps to ensure the entire facility is sanitary at all times. A manager is on-site 24/7 with a staff-to-dog ratio of one to five. The owners live on-site.
Beyond the clean, safe, secure environment, the dogs at DogPatch Downs receive plenty of affectionate attention and expert care - from boarding to daycare, training to grooming - DogPatch Downs is your dog's home away from home.
