Welcome to Top Dog Training and Resort. Come join us at our exclusive day school and resort. Our company is a school, training/fitness center, spa, and boarding resort for dogs. We offer day school Monday- Friday for your k9 family member. Top Dog will provide structured and challenging activities monitored by trained professionals to keep the dogs focused on the activity. The skills they learn at school will also transition to their home life. For dogs that need extra training, we provide in-board training, and the dog will reside at the facility for three weeks as the trainers work with him/her daily.

  • Our dogs, Bailey and Blitz, had a great time with Jennie! I loved that there were so many dogs to socialize with ours, and she was super flexible when we needed an extra night of dog-sitting

  • Jennie’s the BEST!!! This is the first time I’ve ever felt truly comfortable about leaving my dogs with someone else. Jennie treated my two dogs as though they were her own, and gave them plenty of individual attention. My oldest dog kept trying to go back into Jennie’s when it was time to leave! That’s a first! Jennie’s daughter spoiled my youngest dog just like I do. Both of my dogs were happy and well adjusted when I arrived. It was well worth the several hours of driving (and sitting in traffic) to have the awesome service from Jennie. I highly recommend Jennie and her service.

  • Jennie took great care of our fur baby! Nikki dog had never been away from the family before her stay. We were updated with pictures to ease our minds while we were gone. We came home to a happy, healthy, clean dog.

  • It was my first time leaving my puppy (6 months old) with ANYONE and Jennie was simply amazing. Jennie knows her dogs! Spotty was not only happy but TIRED when we picked him up. She sent me great pics of how he was getting along with the other dogs and he’s even better behaved than when I left him. (He no longer jumps up on people.) Jennie even gave me some training pointers and games we could play with Spotty to help him “come here” when we call him. We have a week in the Outer Banks and I can leave knowing Spotty has a great home to vacation in as well! Thank YOU Jennie! Truly a relief to find someone who clearly loves what she does and understands dogs need structure, exercise, discipline and love to be truly happy.

  • Jennie was great! Mia came home worn out from her fun time with Jennie. Jennie gave her plenty of time outside with all of the other dogs. Jennie made us feel comfortable by giving us a great tour of her place before we left Mia with her. I will absolutely use Jennie again.

  • Jennie is AMAZING! She loved my pup like he was her own. I was so happy with how well she took care of him that I immediately booked her again for my next trip 🙂

  • My Goldendoodle Roux had a great time at Jennies! She got a great physical AND mental workout with lots of friends and was exhausted and happy when she came home. I loved the photos that Jennie sent and I loved not having to worry about my baby while I was gone! We will definitely be back.

    Beth E
  • My dog Gia had a wonderful stay here!! I could see from the pictures I was sent that she was having so much fun! I have only previously boarded her at kennels and this was such a great change to know that she was being cared for by someone who could pay individual attention to the dogs. I am extremely pleased with this stay and would definitely do it again!

    Emily T
  • Jennie is a great host who has a knack for caring for and training dogs. It was evident when Lucy came home that she matured and was enriched by the experience of boarding at Jenny’s. Jenny also kept me up to date with pictures so my kids could see Lucy when we were on vacation. I would recommend her day care and boarding to anyone who is in the market for these services.

  • I can’t tell you how happy we are to have found Jennie. My then fiance, now husband, dropped off Maddie with Jennie on the Friday before our wedding. This was obviously a very stressful time so it was such a relief to get a call from him just raving about how great Jennie was. Maddie had also already made a friend, another high energy dog named Paddles. During her stay, Jennie sent us pictures to show how much fun Maddie was having (such a comfort.) When we picked her up she seemed happy and calm. We got a great report from Jennie about how Maddie did and it was obvious that she really cares about dogs and that she respects each of their different personalities. We are now considering taking Maddie to Jennie’s for day camp regularly just because she enjoyed herself so much!

    Mackenzie B
  • Jennie has a “gift” of connecting with dogs. Our Bailey loves to go there, and we’re never sure that he’s glad to come home! That’s how good she is.

    Linda B
  • 2nd stay with Jennie and again, it was a great experience. Jennie pays attention to each dogs special needs. My oldest has problems with back legs (2 surgeries) so it not as sturdy as he thinks he should be. Was not a problem, he got his play time and came back happy and healthy.

    Devlin S
  • My dog, Roux, immediately felt comfortable with Jennie who really did understand her bred and personality. When I returned to pick up Roux, she was happy to see me but calm and not anxious. I especially like the activities for the dogs and look forward to repeat visits.

    Inez V
  • My dog has some anxiety issues with meeting new people/dogs. Jennie has always been really great at getting her acclimated and comfortable in her home–she’s always excited to go back!

    Erin D
  • Bentley’s stay with Jennie was wonderful. This has been his second stay with her and every time I pick him up he’s not only happy but also tired from all the activities he was able to do! Jennie not only made sure he was taken care of, but also trained Bentley with various tricks, stays, and patience trainings, as well as performed dog pilates with him to help him stretch his muscles. She made sure to send pictures of his stay, so I was able to see how Bentley played with other dogs and performed during training. Jennie also gave Bentley a bath at no additional charge so that he was nice and clean before I picked him up. I would recommend Jennie wholeheartedly to any dog owner and plan to use her in the future any time I am away. Thank you Jennie!

  • We have one very dog-shy pup and a second who can be a little unsure of certain people due to her prior abuse before being rescued. When we were looking for a place for our pups to vacation while we were away, we had great difficulty finding somewhere that felt like our dogs wouldn’t be terrified/anxious the entire time we were away. Jennie did a wonderful job making sure that our pets were treated well and not put in to stressful situations – they even apparently behave better for her than they do for us! She sent picture updates and was even concerned enough to check in with me to make sure the “nose foam” (we have a beagle mix who sniffs everything) wasn’t a sign of anxiety. We are looking forward to using Jennie’s services again and knowing that our dogs are not having a scary vacation — and maybe they’ll even learn some new tricks and manners too!

    Sarah B
  • Jennie was amazing. Thanks so much!

    Colin P
  • Excellent experience as always. Repeat customer given the amount of fun Miles has while we are gone. Miles always comes back happy and clean!

    Alyson M
  • Jennie is the best! Hazel always comes home happy, tired and better behaved (a mega perk)

    Casey E.
  • My puppy Archer, had an amazing time! I am so glad I took him there for daycamp. He was better behaved, tired after a full day of playtime, and we were absolutely pleased. I am definitely going to take my puppy back soon! 🙂
