Lucky Dog is outstanding. I have taken my 5 year old laborador retriever there since he was a year old for 2-5 days a week. I have also boarded him overnight for 1-14 days occasionally. He loves the place. He jumps up on the glass door when we arrive and he returns home tired and happy. The owner, Robin, and her employees love the dogs and know the personalities and preferences of each one. I am grateful that we have this place in Indianapolis.
My dog has been attending morning daycare a few times per week for several months now, and has been all day a few times.
She is eager to go inside and join the dogs - gets excited even before we enter the parking lot - and is happy (and tired) when I pick her up. The staff have always been friendly, conscientious, helpful, calm - my high-energy dog can be a handful occasionally and they always handle her well.
Luck Dog's web cam is a great feature and I do pull it up just to watch sometimes. I have no reservations or concerns about trusting them with my dog and would definitely recommend them.

My dog has gone for day care a few time/week for several months. She is always excited to get there and eager to go inside, and she's happy (and tired) when I pick her up. I check out the web cam and everything I see gives me confidence that she is safe and well cared for. I definitely recommend Luck Dog.
Lucky Dog Retreat is tops for doggy daycare and overnight boarding.
My two wild girls are my kids and I couldn't ask for a better, more caring environment than Lucky Dog.
The wild girls jump into the car when I say, ""Lucky Dog"" and are SO excited when we get there.
On more than one occasion Lucky Dog has helped out me of a bind with last minute care and the staff is always so happy and friendly when we walk in the door.
The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, loving, caring and dependable and trained in pet CPR and they offer pet CPR classes and training classes to the public--great stuff.
I know my wild girls are safe, happy and having a great time whenever they're at Lucky Dog. I wouldn't be able to leave them if I felt any other way.
Lucky Dog Retreat RULES!!!!
I have four dogs and they absolutely LOVE Lucky Dog Retreat! The live webcam is GREAT! I love being able to check up on my 'kids' while they are playing at Day Care! I love the supervision the dogs get too! It is wonderful being able to drop the dogs off in the morning and know they are well-cared for all day!
I am proud to say that my (four) dog is a LUcky Dog!!!
Lucky Dog Retreat is the best place in Indy, period, for dogs!!! We've been taking our dogs there for three years and they absolutely love going there. Since Lucky Dog has a big, open play area and does NOT kennel the dogs during the day, our dogs get tons of exercise and come home exhausted every day. And when we go out of town it's the only place we'll let them stay overnight. The staff love dogs and it shows (they're even trained in canine CPR). We've never had any problems. And to top it all off, Lucky Dog shelters rescue dogs until they find permanent homes. Best place for dogs in Indy!
I have been taking my year old lab to Lucky Dog 5 days a week for almost a year. She loves it! She has come home with a couple of scratches over that year but guess what! She is a dog, and she is playing and having fun! She has done much worse just playing in the yard! There is always 2 people in the room supervising the dogs so I know that my dog will always be well supervised. Lucky Dog also has great training classes! And the best of all is that Lucky Dog Retreat (aka Robin Herman, owner) has saved over 70 dogs from Animal Care and Control and gotten them adopted out and many of those people bring them back to Lucky Dog! These are 70 dogs that would have been euthanized otherwise! Great Job Lucky Dog!!!!
I am proud to say that my dog is a Lucky Dog!
I took my dog to the Lucky Dog Retreat about 3 times. My dog is a well behaved 1yr old that has been socialized with other dogs since she was born. People that I work with told me they had horrible experiences with Lucky dogs daycare and boarding but I brushed it off and continued to board her overnight there. The second time she stayed there she got bit on the ear but I figured thats what happens when dogs play all day. The last time I boarded her, several days ago, I picked her up and didn't notice anything. After she woke up from sleeping all day I noticed she did not want to walk. I looked at her feet and the pads on her paws were completely worn off and raw. Every time anything touched her sore covered paws she would start shaking uncontrollably from the pain. I had to wrap all of her paws up becuase she was in so much pain and its going to take a long time for them to heal. I called lucky dog and the person in charge said that it was not their responsibility because they aren't a kennel and was quite rude. She said it wasn't there fault that she runs around the entire time she is there. When I dropped her off I had specifically told them that since she got bit the last time to put her up for a time out if necessary. I worked as a vet tech for many years and it is a fact that you must be aware of every dogs physical state in order to conduct a safe business. I was under the impression that when you pay someone to watch your dog that they would be responsible?!! Go ahead and spare yourself and your dog the pain and find a place that actually cares about the animals that stay there. The lady in charge over there is obviously in the wrong profession because she seems totally emotionless and uncompassionate (never once smiled)! Also they refused to refund me any of the $55 that I payed for my dogs day and night stay.
I always find these reviews helpful, so I thought I would take the time time to share a wonderful experience. As a new dog owner to a rescued and scared dog, I was very nervous about the doggy day care. Day 1, was as expected. "Buford" put the breaks on and had to be dragged in whimpering and crying. This put me in tears, because I did not want him to feel unsafe and abandoned. Robin, the owner, assured me that he would settle in and that I could watch his progress on the webcam. Not only did I watch him, all of my friends and family now tune in daily to watch Buford. We are on our 7th visit to day care and I am MORE than pleased with the service, the staff, the cleanliness and the high level of trust I have built with Lucky Dog. Now Buford cries when he has to leave. I HIGHLY recommend Lucky Dog to anyone needing daily care. Buford has built his confidence level and is very happy! Thank you so much Lucky Dog Retreat!
