About Us

Southern Hospitality, charm and luxury abound at One of Virginia’s Finest Resorts: Lord Charlton Pet Spa.  Established in 1964 by Huber and Myrtle Ford and known then as Lord Charlton Kennel, it quickly helped transform pet lodging from the traditional dog kennel, or dog and cat boarding facility to the much preferred pet resort.  Mr. Ford’s health began to fail in late 2005 and he and his wife Myrtle had to begin to change the kennel’s operation.  Mr. Ford died in May of 2006 and now it is in his honor and respect for the loving dedication to animals and their care that we step in and offer to all of the pets that knew this place and their new furry friends this fun and safe place to visit. A fun activity schedule and tantalizing treats keep pets happy.

Doggie Day Care is available.  Your pets make many special friendships as they frolic and romp on a country club setting.

We have experienced staff to pet sit for your loved ones if you prefer they don’t travel when you do.

Spa treatments were never so yummy.  Our bathing, trims and massages will have your furry friend so relaxed and looking like perfection.

Lord Charlton Pet Spa offers an expert personal dog training program.   We will teach your dog basic dog obedience and we can address dog behavioral issues. We offer Canine Good Citizen certification as well.

Lord Charlton Pet Spa is thrilled to offer you an opportunity to indulge the special pet in your life….make a reservation today!
