Country Dogs® was founded on the strong belief that dogs prefer to be outdoors with room to run in happy/safe playtime with other dogs. It is with this core belief in mind that Mark and Victoria Cave, Owners, first began Country Dogs®.
It all started with a 17 acre farm in the Shenandoah Valley and has now been in operation since July 2004. Originally Country Dogs® served just the DC/MD/NoVA area. And happily, given great customer support and steady growth, Country Dogs® quickly expanded to serve the NYC market as well.
Mark has broad a business and non-profit background as well as experience as an educator. He is also a seasoned entrepreneur and philanthropist. Victoria is a national and international speaker on the Orff Schulwerk teaching approach and serves on the music faculty of a private school in Charlottesville, VA.
Together they have combined their rich backgrounds in business, education, and outreach with their passion for creating a unique All-Season Boarding Campexperience to create what has become Country Dogs®. Mark and Victoria are dedicated to the operation and passionate about the mission of the company.
Our kennels are over-sized, comfortable, and clean and are situated within beautiful, rustic farm settings. Our staff is experienced and loving. You can relax, knowing that your dog is well cared for and having fun while you are away for business or pleasure.
