Step 2. Complete our Online Registration Form to enroll your dog with Dogwoods Lodge. This form needs to be completed only once per dog.

Step 3. Submit your dog's vaccination information. Have your records faxed to (515) 986-3394 or emailed to: We require the following before booking any services at Dogwoods Lodge:

  • A negative fecal exam
  • Rabies vaccine
  • Distemper/Parvo vaccine
  • Bordetella vaccine

*Puppy vaccines just need to be up-to-date for their age.

Step 4. Call us to book your dog's first reservation!

NOTE: Make note of our Lodge Pricing Policy. We charge much like a hotel. We charge for every overnight your dog is with us. On pickup days, there is a half day fee if picked up after 10AM. So, for example, if you drop off at 5pm Mon and pick up at 10am on Tues, that would be 1 day. If you picked up at 5pm on Tues, that would be 1.5 days.
