To Tour

At The Red Dog Inn and Resort we are committed to understanding the stress involved in finding trusting care for your pet when you travel. Our mission is to create an atmosphere where clients can feel rest assured that their companion is receiving quality care during overnight visits. We have grooming and day care too!


From time to time people tell me, "Lighten up, it's just a dog, or That's a lot of money for just a dog." They don't understand the distance traveled, time spent, or costs involved for "Just a dog." Some of my proudest moments have come about with "Just a dog". Many hours have passed with my only company being "Just a dog" and not once have I felt slighted. Some of my saddest moments were brought about by "Just a dog". In those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "Just a dog" provided comfort and purpose to overcome the day.

If you too, think its "Just a dog," you will probably understand phrases like "Just a friend," "Just a sunrise," or "Just a promise," "Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "Just a dog," brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person. Because of "Just a dog" I will rise early, take long walks, and look longingly to the future.

For me and folks like me, it's not "Just a dog". It's an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moments. "Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.

I hope that someday people can understand it's not "Just a dog". It's the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "Just a man or woman."

So the next time you hear the phrase "Just a dog." smile, because they "JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND."
