I have to preface this review with I am normally very anxious about leaving my dog with anyone (even family) and I am insanely protective over my best friend. My dog is a senior and has had a rough time at other boarding places lately, but Universal Dog Care was so much better than traditional boarding. The process was easy and streamlined and whenever we picked up our dog he was always in a good mood and relaxed. The hourly photo updates really helped calm my nerves and was always a treat to see him having fun. I wouldn’t hesitate to book here again.Thank you for giving us peace of mind while watching Wallace!

We went to Universal & Disney world for 4 days and brought our 2 miniature dachshunds. Honestly, it was a spontaneous trip, so we didn’t plan on bringing them at first because we weren’t sure what to do with them during the day since they’re not allowed at the park. Then we came across her services, which are reasonably priced! We liked getting to the parks when they opened, so we dropped our pups off for day care around 7:30/8 in the mornings, which was only about a 10 minute drive from where we were staying, then we’d pick them up whenever we were done usually around 4:30-6 (depending on the park). She made it so easy! Throughout our days at the park, she texted us updates/pictures frequently, which was reassuring! It was an overall great and easy experience, so we’d easily use her again if/when we go back! 🤍

Our trip isn’t over yet, but I have nothing but amazing things to say about this place! I’ve never felt so happy to have our babies here! They’re so happy and I know this because we receive pictures throughout the day! They’re always so responsive! If I could give them more than 5 stars I would! We will definitely use them again!!

Dog Care & Boarding

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. We try to know what you need in your care and deliver that with CONSISTENCY, RELIABILITY, and PROFESSIONALISM. 

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 family 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 that you feel a part of their day, their fun.

We are 1.8 miles as the crow flies from Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay 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, potty pads in each corner, and friends to play with...
  • All-Day Doggy daycare, or full (overnight) 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) 212-7152‬ 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) 212-7152‬. We individually book your appointment based on your needs.

What experience do you have caring for dogs?
We have had 25 years experience with rescue. Currently, we have one chiwauwau, Ghost, 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 friends, 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 generally 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) 212-7152‬, you will choose your check-in time. Boarding is 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, with check out before 8 am the morning following your dog's care, with special accommodations made based on your needs. 

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. We want to make sure your dog has the best experience possible.

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 an 8-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. You can reschedule or BANK your care for the future at no extra cost, just let us know your needs.

What is your Privacy Policy?
When you hire our services, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
