  1. While your dog may be extremely well behaved, other dogs may not be, so every dog must always be on a leash when in the garden or on the front porch.

  2. You must keep your dog from doing their ‘business’ in the garden because when a dog ‘marks’ a spot other dogs will often do the same and pretty soon the garden will be just a memory.

  3. There is no size restriction, no dog is too big or too small.

  4. Owners must have a cell phone with them and keep it turned on whenever they leave their dog unattended at the house. If the dog is barking for an extended period of time we will call the owner and ask them to come back to the house.

  5. Cats: don’t even ask, I’m allergic to them.

  6. No more than two dogs are allowed in any apartment.

  7. Puppies must be crated when left alone.

  8. No matter how small the dog, owners are expected to always pick up after them.

  9. In deference to other guests, dogs are never ever allowed on the beds or furniture. If your pooch must cuddle on the sofa, ask and we have some old sheets.

  10. Dogs are not to be left in the yard unattended at any time.

  11. The use of “wee-wee’ pads is not allowed.

  12. Dogs are not allowed in the 3rd Floor Main house apartment.

  13. If you have any questions please call us before making a reservation, 912-658-4419

There is a flat $50 pet cleaning fee per reservation, this is not per dog or per night.

dog activities


  • Savannah is a very dog friendly town and I’ve taken my Danes into many stores although I always ask before going in.
  • Most of the trolly tour companies allow dogs but it’s best to call them ahead to confirm.
  • Lake Mayer is a few miles away and allows dogs to play in a small fresh water lake.
  • Tybee Island charges a $500 fine, per dog if you take them to the beach and they wonder why people call them the Redneck Riviera!
  • The closest beach that allows dogs is on Hilton Head Island, about a 45 minute drive from Savannah,


our danes

  • Keith rescued Moose & Charlie while living in New York City and Scooter joined the family after we moved to Savannah and sadly all have since passed away.  Today we have Puppet, Buddy and Emma, all rescues and will lean against you whenever they’re being petted.
