Over 13 years ago Dawn and Peter Brittain opened Animal House Doggie B&B in Sarasota, FL (www.animalhousesarasota.biz).  They created a fun and safe enviornment for dogs to romp and play with their friends.  A place that is a home away from home.  A place where a dog gets to go on vacation too while the family is away.  Also a place for those dogs that need some exercise and romp time during the week while your at work.

 In 2009 Dawn and Peter decided to sell their business and move to Vermont, a place they fell in love with years ago, and raise their family closer to relatives.  With Animal House of New England we offer the same love and care to your pets.  A safe place where they can make new friends and play all day.

We offer an open environment were dogs can run and play or just sit on the couch and watch whats going on.

We have a 600 square foot room for the dogs to play in and our large enclosed dog yard.  We also have 40 beautiful acres with lots of groomed trails to walk our dogs on.  And large grassy areas for our dogs to romp and play.  We are the only house on Power Plant Road so our place is safe and secure for your loved one.

We do have just a couple of rules.  All dogs must be spayed/neutered by 1 year.  Our environment may not be for everyone.  So if possible we like to do a doggie interview first to make sure they will enjoy there stay with us and for us to make sure we are not taking in any aggressive dogs. 

 Call to set up your dogs next stay with us.  So you can enjoy piece of mind knowing that they are having just as much fun as you are.

 We also offer Daycare - Monday through Friday.

Our dog "Max"  could not go to any kennel because of all his special needs.

But under Dawn's care we were able to go on a much needed vacation without worry or concern. 

Max not only was cared for but he thrived under her care.  We are looking forward to being able to travel more. 

Thanks Dawn! Michael and Amy Hawkins Danville Vermont

Our 8.5 year old black Lab, Maggie, has had some separation anxiety
for several years after the passing of our other two dogs over the
last 3-4 years.  Since using Dawn's services and care, Maggie comes
back from Dawn in good spirits and not with issues previously seen.
Maggie adjusted very well to staying at Dawn's and the care has been
excellent.  My wife and I were able to be gone recently for 10-11 days
on a vacation and Maggie was in excellent spirits and health when we
picked her up.  I would highly recommend Dawn's service.  The personal
care, exercise, and social play time with other dogs was great for
Maggie.  We'll continue to use Dawn's business for both daycare and
vacation for Maggie.  We wish she had started her business years
earlier when we had three dogs.  The care was the best we've seen in
17 years of having dogs and there weren't any of the isolation issues
and dietary issues often experienced by Maggie with some kennels.
Maggie got plenty of exercise, which she needs.  We've always had to
pay extra for more than two 15-minute outings a day outside of the
caged area from some other kennels.  Dawn was excellent about taking
care of Maggie and we recommend ANIMALHOUSEOFNEWENGLAND!
