There is a kennel a few miles from our home in the South Bay, but we prefer taking our two 9 year old dogs along on our frequent trips to Truckee.  They have been regulars at TTPL since they were puppies.  One of the dogs is always game for anything; the other is a bit timid.  Both, however, eagerly run to the front door every time we arrive for our 3 to 7 day stays in the area.  We often sign them out for a few hours of playtime with the family and they, once again, eagerly race back to the door when we return them to their Truckee home.
The staff is always friendly and welcoming to the whole family — 2 and 4 legged.  Most importantly, we have peace of mind that our furbabies are happy and safe whenever they visit.

Stay anywhere in the area and we’ll pamper your dog while you enjoy the Sierras and beautiful Lake Tahoe!

Hotels and other vacation rentals have pricey pet fees and pet restrictions that limit what you can do with your dog in Lake Tahoe. Some North Lake Tahoe condos won’t allow your dog at all. But you can still co-vacation with your dog in the Lake Tahoe area. Don’t leave your dog behind in the San Francisco Bay area or greater Sacramento areas. Bring your dog to North Lake Tahoe!

“Located in the heart of downtown Truckee just one mile from Interstate 80, Truckee-Tahoe Pet Lodge is a convenient stop on your way to your favorite Lake Tahoe vacation spot.” –

For years my husband and I split time between the San Francisco Bay Area and Truckee.  For much of the time, after we were lucky enough to discover Truckee Tahoe Pet Lodge “TTPL”, our Labrador, Blizzard, has enjoyed both daycare and the “Presidential Suite” on his sleepovers.  Blizzard is almost 12 and when he was having a bit of difficulty getting around, the team at TTPL gave him extra love, special care and assistance. We have since moved from the Bay Area and are now lucky enough to split our time between Bend and Truckee and although we aren’t in Truckee as much as we used to be, we still make sure to take Blizzard to TTPL when we are in town.

As owners, we know that Blizzard is safe and happy and that the TTPL team loves him, too.  We don’t have to worry when we travel and on days when we end up leaving the mountain later than expected, it’s nice to know we can arrange for a late pickup. It’s also nice to know that while we are having fun on the mountain or out on the lake, Blizzard is having as much if not more fun than we are at TTPL.  You won’t find a better doggie daycare in Truckee or, for that matter, in the entire Lake Tahoe area.
