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

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 seventeen adopted dogs herself. 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

Bambi, the Telugu-speaking Pug

 "Yes, I do recommend Dog House. Best dog boarding place in Chennai! Honestly, I thought my dog would get bored or become dull but it was the exact opposite that happened! A very dog-friendly place!"

Rosie & Latte, Indie couple

"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 Dog House for dog boarding in Chennai."

Casper, the celebrity Beagle

"This place is the best for boarding in Chennai for our fur buddies if you're going on a long holiday. Our 4 yr old beagle is a very timid girl and we were so apprehensive about how she would gel with the other dogs but Keerthi made sure that she was very comfortable. We loved that they follow cageless method in taking care of them. Keerthi and her helper constantly monitor the dogs and keep us updated. Keerthi is an amazing person who has a great insight about the dogs and her dog house property is huge. Our girl had a great time and we knew she was in safe hands. Anytime any day dog house is the best 👌👌 "

Trisha, the famous Indie

"We left our Indie for five days at Dog House last week. She came back a very happy dog! (and even got her nails trimmed). This has been by far the best dog boarding place we have left her in so far, almost like leaving her at a friend's place.
Very smooth service with pick up and drop off, advantage with home-cooked chicken and rice, and Keerthi kept us posted about her stay often. Thanks to everyone at Dog House. Highly recommend."

Tippu, the royal Indie

"Yes, I highly recommend Dog House... I had tried boarding my boy, Tippu, with many kennels/shelters... but Tippu was not happy and would immediately fall sick once he is back home... Tippu is very sensitive and self-protective boy, any one just can't go near him, he will roar like a Lion, he will not eat anything until he meets us... but this time it was completely different... I must really say Keerthi handled him sooooo well, she understood him completely and took good care of him for almost 6 days... i haven't seen Tippu moving so closely with anyone in this short time... he came back home with a happy face... Thank you so very much, Keerthi... hereafter we have decided to book our vacation regularly 🤓." 

Coco, the water puppy

I left my pal at Dog House for more than a week and he is ready to go back again! He missed his friends. Thanks to Dog House's leash-free policy, he roamed free like he always did at home. I will be boarding Coco at Dog House again for the summer.

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 2.5 months old.



The smaller the dog, the more the spunk. Clove was rescued when she weighed barely 250 grams. At 2.5 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.



About 50 days old. Curious about humans, other dogs and everything in his environment.



Brave explorer. Outgoing and enjoys lap time. About 50 days old.
