Our Facilities

Air-conditioning, plush beds


Our guests enjoy large, kennel-free air-conditioned accommodation equipped with plush beds and toys. Dog boarding in Chennai just got luxurious!

Swimming Pool


We have a large pool to help your dog beat the heat in Chennai! If your dog loves water, bring him/her over to Dog House for a splash!

Open-to-sky play area


Dog House is a 15,000-sft. property flaunting a massive, open-to-sky play area. Dogs love to run and play here! 

Large, cool runs


We have created large, cool resting spaces for dogs in our outdoor environment. We have 12X24-foot runs equipped with ceiling fans and curtains, and they receive day-long cool breeze. These runs are also perfect for dogs who absolutely do not want to mingle with other dogs. They're large enough for a Rottweiler or Great Dane to roam. We believe in respecting an introverted dog's boundaries and need for space.

Pickup & Drop all over Chennai


Our swanky ride for the VIPs ( Very Important Pets) is equipped to escort dogs all over Chennai. We have an air-conditioned Maruti Ertiga . If your dog is staying with us, we offer pickup and drop regardless of which corner of Chennai you're in!

Spay & Neuter!

For a healthier, happier dog.

 If you have not talked to your vet yet about the benefits of spaying/neutering your dog, you should. Dog House offers spay and neuter services and post-operative care. You can have your pooch stay with us for 5-7 days while he/she gets neutered and heals from surgery. We partner with some of the best vets in town and have many years' experience in neutering dogs.

Say why neuter your dog?

- It helps reduce hormonal aggression
- It helps prevent tumors, hormonal imbalances, false pregnancies and uterus infections
- It allows multiple dogs to co-exist harmoniously in the same home
- Intact males have the tendency to fight other males
- Intact males tend to hump other dogs, humans and objects and are often frustrated
- Intact males tend to howl at night and jump walls if they pick up the scent of a female in heat
- Intact females will come into heat every six months, howl, be cranky / aggressive and some experience severe false pregnancy symptoms post heat
- Most boarding homes refuse to accommodate females in heat because they raise quite a ruckus
- Intact dogs are harder to socialize in places where they come into contact with other dogs, mainly because of their hormonal aggression. We're talking boarding homes, pet parties, dog socializing events etc.
- Neutering prevents unwanted and accidental breeding

Not breeding your dog is also important to create awareness around the importance of adopting orphaned and abandoned dogs from animal shelters in the city. Please encourage friends and family to neuter their pet dogs. Please talk to them about the importance of adopting homeless dogs instead of buying dogs from breeders. Commercial dog breeding is an industry that abuses dogs throughout their lives before dumping them on the streets. ADOPT. DON'T SHOP.


About the Founder

D for Dog, D for Dream

Dog House is the beginning of a much bigger dream for Keerthi Priyadharshini, Founder of Dog House, and mother of nineteen adopted dogs and a piglet :-). Keerthi grew up around multiple dogs and has over thirty years’ experience in personally caring for them. She has been doing volunteer work for homeless dogs in Chennai for several years now. She has helped many homeless dogs get adopted and has vaccinated, sterilized and rehabilitated many dogs. She has organized adoption drives for homeless dogs and delivered talks in corporate offices to create awareness around the importance of adoption and the cruelties in commercial dog breeding. 

Like most dog parents, Keerthi found herself in a soup every time she had to travel out of Chennai because she needed someone reliable to give her pampered dogs the kind of attention, comfort and care they were used to, in her absence. For years, she dreamed of creating a massive homestay, far superior to a kennel, where dogs get to enjoy all the luxuries of their own home and more! We’re talking not just beds, bean bags and air-conditioning but also large, outdoor play areas, fresh air, greenery, water, digging holes in the ground and everything dogs love :-). She wanted to create a dog boarding home where dogs could be themselves and enjoy an environment that’s as natural and healthy as possible. No cages, no leashes. Fresh, home-cooked food. And most importantly, lots of personal attention 😊. 

Keerthi is an Engineering graduate from BITS Pilani, has a post-graduate degree in Human Resource Management and works in a Business Operations role with one of the world’s leading Fintech companies. Her passion for working with dogs led her to set up Dog House. Looking after dogs is what Keerthi does best. Keerthi and her big doggie family have their private residence located within the premises of Dog House. Dog House is a family-run establishment. Keerthi, her family and their dedicated, dog-crazy staff ensure 24X7 personal care for your puppers. Keerthi created every inch of Dog House by asking herself the question, “Is this what I would want for MY dog?” 

Keerthi’s furry family includes special needs dogs as well - a blind Labrador Retriever, Chip, and two paraplegic Indian dogs, Angel and Veera. Together, they are one big happy family!

Customer Reviews

"We left our special child here and he found a special place! Thank you very much Keerthi and team for your care and comfort." - Raju, the special needs dog

" I highly recommend Dog House. I left my 7 month old GSD pup with Keerthi for a few days. Leo is a very hyperactive dog and bites a lot. Keerthi handled him with amazing patience. I wouldn't trust anyone with Leo when we are away. " - Leo, the GSD puppy that goes grrrrr....

"We kept smily in Keerthi's boarding place for a month in May during vacations.

Smily is a distemper survivor who would occasionally get seizures, required spoon feeding and basically needed a lot of individual care. And so it has always been a struggle to not only find someone who can look after her well but even just take her in. So when Keerthi agreed to keep her it was a huge relief. Not only did she take very good care of our baby, she also kept us updated with pictures, videos and stories about smily and took immediate action when she got sick too.

Smily seemed to have really enjoyed her time there and learned a lot of new things from the others dogs there too. I would definitely recommend this place, there's a good amount of space, a pool for the dogs to play in and most importantly, a really good caretaker.Thank you Keerthi for doing a wonderful job at looking after all these babies!" - Smily, a special needs child

" I boarded my two indies at Dog House two weeks ago and I have nothing but praise for Keerthi and her family. I did a short-term trial to see how they would fare, since I will need to board them for two months this summer. Keerthi came to pick up my dogs and drove them the 50km back to Red Hills. The dogs immediately jumped out and started exploring and then gobbled up their home-cooked meal. I got daily updates on how they were doing. They enjoyed running, jumping, and playing with other dogs. When it was time for them to come home, Keerthi dropped them off and they gave her a quick goodbye before running back into my house. The dogs were so well cared for that I am excited for them to stay with Keerthi again for June and July. I highly recommend. " - Rosie & Lattie, lucky adopted Indies

" My dogs were so happy at Dog House -so much that they wanted to go back there right after coming home!! it was like a vacation for them. Keerthi- thank you so much for taking such good care of them. can't recommend you enough. I can now never leave them anywhere else but your place. Highly highly recommend!!" - Coco & Loki, the aquatic Golden Retriever sisters

Meet Sheldon, our piglet.

Do you know? Pigs are more intelligent than dogs!

We adopted Sheldon from a slaughter farm. Pigs are intelligent, loving and social animals. They love belly rubs, can solve puzzles, enjoy toys and bath tubs. Sheldon was terrified of humans when we first brought him home. He now wags his tail, rolls over for rubs, rubs his nose on us, eats out of a bowl and plays with toys. He's just as naughty as a dog. He rips toys and beds. He throws bowls around :-). He looks forward to human companionship and food. Sheldon has his own private condo at Dog House. We simply can't get enough of our cute, pink piglet!

Sheldon on YouTube

We love sharing videos of our piglet. He's growing, changing and bringing us new experiences. We're discovering more about this gentle giant every day.

Our Adoptable Rescued Dogs



The contrast between her rare coat color and her dark eyes is striking. Ashley has a quite a fan following because of her looks. She's 4 months old.



The smaller the dog, the more the spunk. Clove was rescued when she weighed barely 250 grams. At 4 months, she thinks she's a tiger and intimidates dogs 10 times her size. Her tiny face and pointed ears make her look like part puppy part kitten.
