I am so happy I picked universal dog care to care for my fur baby on vacation. They kept me updated with pictures throughout his stay and I could see he was having a good time. When I picked him up he was very happy and I could tell he had a good time. They treated my sweet boy like their family and I will not take my fur baby anywhere else while we visit Orlando in the future. I am extremely satisfied!!!!

We LOVED sending our yellow lab Luna here while we visited the Universal parks! Luna is 10 years old and this was her first time being boarded, so we were anxious to leave her and see how she did. We felt so at ease the moment we left her and knew she would be in good hands. Luna made so many friends and had SO much fun. Our family loved getting pictures every hour, when the phone went off we would immediately open it to see how happy Luna looked. We also appreciated that they made sure Luna was getting rest. On the last day, Luna was tired so they put her in her room to rest and we loved that they cared and made sure she was comfortable. We highly recommend this place!!

Universal Dog Care was wonderful with our baby Oakley! He had such and amazing time and was so well taken care of! This was his first time going to day care and we were a little nervous until he we saw the pictures and the communication we received throughout the day! They made this whole experience wonderful!! Will definitely be using them again! 💕

Family Care By Way of Dog Care

We pride ourselves on our compassionate communication. We work to put ourselves in the place of your family...What would you need to know to feel happy and relaxed while you are out having fun? And we give that every single time. And we ask questions to try to know what you need in your care. 

Our approach to FAMILIES, after 25 years in rescue work:
We care for families...some members just have fur.
Family-Style Service: We use our communication and caring, with loving laps, hands, and arms.
We are your surrogate, taking care of your Fur-Family like you would, while you go have human fun.
We have recliners, chairs, and beds with a family approach, not dogs who are screaming and fearful all day and night.
We send pictures and videos throughout the day...so that you feel a part of their day, their fun.

We are 1.8 miles from Universal Studios in the heart of Orlando. We do daily dog sitting and dog boarding while you work and play. We send you pictures and videos of your dog(s) having fun all day long. You are getting the peace of mind that your dog is having MORE fun than you are.

Our Dog Care and Boarding Facility Includes:
  • Dogs are walked ON LEASH in our fully-fenced 3/4 acre yard (with trees and flowers and birdbaths) about once every couple of hours. During the heat of the day, we go out frequently for a quick potty and then keep everyone in for air-conditioned playtime.
  • Featuring over 1500 sq. ft. of secured and Climate Controlled Indoor Play Area, with tile floors and friends to play with...
  • All-Day Doggy daycare, or full boarding or multiple-day dog care for as long as you like...
  • Daycare hours are 8 am to 8 pm, with special accommodation for early drop-off or late pickup.
  • Experienced, Trained, and Loving Family Dedicated to Delivering Personalized Attention, with arms, laps, and love.
  • Individual playtime for dogs who are shy, dog intolerant, or need extra human attention
  • Food and treats that you supply are presented for consistency and reliability and safety.

Frequently Asked Questions  

What Information do you need to schedule our dog's care?
TEXT (407) 490-4153 so we can check availability.

What options do you have for care?
We have flexible booking options, from all-day to overnight boarding. You just choose the care you need...and schedule your check-in time. We do the rest. You will receive pictures and videos throughout the day.

How do I book a reservation?  
Universal Dog Care Orlando asks that you text us at (407) 490-4153. We individually book your appointment based on your needs.

What experience do you have caring for dogs?
We have had 25 years with English Bulldog rescue. Currently, we have one English Bulldog, Twilight, who adopted us back. He is the sweetest, gentlest soul on the Planet. So we have a companion for your dog...and a family who loves dogs. We have experience with behavioral issues, male dogs marking their territory on everything in the house, nothing is likely to bother us...and we will handle it all with calm, steady responses. Dogs are always nervous when you leave and we let them get used to the humans before introducing them to any other dogs.

What is it like at Universal Dog Care Orlando?
It is like your house, but with our furniture. Nothing fancy, although we have tile floors throughout the house so that we don't have to worry about hair or stains and it makes cleaning much easier. We have professional cleaners who keep the place spick and span.

What will my dog do all day?
Your dog will be in our home, with our family, following us around from room to room, sitting on our bed while we do our Zoom work or school, and go to our yard with our family. In short, they will be one of our family, in our home and our beds and on our furniture. Your dog will play with indoor toys, go out into the fully-fenced backyard on a leash to run and play, or lounge on the outdoor patio. Your dog will be very active during their stay with us and it is not uncommon for pets to sleep more than normal after their fun play-cation at Universal Dog Care Orlando.  

What are your hours of operation?
Check-in is between 8 am and 8 pm unless special arrangements are made. When you schedule your dog's care by texting Universal Dog Care Orlando at (407) 490-4153, you will choose your check-in time. Boarding is 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, with check out before 9 am the morning following your dog's care, with special accommodations made based on your needs. 
OPEN 365 DAYS OF THE YEAR

How do you do feedings?
Universal Dog Care Orlando recommends that you bring your own food in pre-measured and pre-marked Ziplock baggies to maintain your pet's normal diet. This also helps prevent over or under-feeding. We feed all dogs SEPARATELY to avoid food allergies or food aggression.

Should I bring my dog's toys or bedding?
To ensure a flea and tick-free environment, we ask that you do not bring any bedding, fabrics, or toys. We provide all dogs with a Deluxe Dog Bed and a fresh blanket at no additional charge. 

Should I bring my dog's cage/crate?
If your dog is most comfortable at night in a crate, then yes. If your dog sleeps in the open, then no. We have deluxe dog beds which are easily sanitized for each dog.

What is the minimum age for boarding a puppy?
The youngest age we will accept is a 10-week-old puppy, due to them needing their mother's warmth and milk before this age. If the mother is being boarded as well, we would make an exception. We just want the welfare of the puppy to be taken care of.

Do you have any restrictions on dog care or boarding?
For the safety of your pet and other dogs at Universal Dog Care Orlando, we do not accept dogs in heat, dogs that have been coughing within the last week, dogs that have open wounds or stitches, dogs that are recovering from surgery,  dogs that have contagious diseases, or dogs who are aggressive to dogs OR people.  

Post Surgery Guests: To reduce the risk of complications post-surgery, we will not accept any pet with non-dissolvable staples or stitches. Any pets with dissolvable stitches must be at least 2 weeks post-operation.

What is your cancellation policy?
If your plans have changed, we ask that you please give us a courtesy text so we can allow availability for another dog to be taken care of. We impose a $25 per day of booking cancellation fee to offset the credit card fees we are charged.
