"Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen"​​

Loving and caring for your precious pets is one of our specialties!

"Thank you so much for taking such good care of Nugent. We spread the word to all of our Florida friends what a professional, friendly facility you run. See you next time we're in Leesburg." - Dean and Karen

Social Tip:

Teach your dog to "show off" a toy when having guests over at the house to keep them from being vocal and over-excited!"

The Pet Lodge and Spa Staff

Our Staff

Pet Lodge and Spa is proudly owned and operated by Bob Orlando.

Each employee is carefully screened before being interviewed. Once verbally interviewed, they are invited to participate in working interviews. They go through at least 8 hours during a working interview.  It is during these working interviews that each prospective employee is evaluated for the way they handle the pets at Pet Lodge, how much they pay attention to details, and how well they work together as a part of a team. They are evaluated while handling pets, feeding pets, giving medications, and on their professionalism. It is through this interview process that we have assembled a team with decades of veterinary experience, kennel management experience, as well as hands on training, breeding and showing of dogs.

The Reception Desk employees actually work in operations as well. They have been selected to work at the reception desk because they provide the utmost in customer service and because they know the pets checking in and out; therefore they are able to provide any and all details on each pet’s stay with us.

When you stop in, ask any of the Pet Lodge employees about their background and what they like the most about working at Pet Lodge. Their love for animals shines through each and every day.
