An Entire World Dedicated to Your Dog

Our Unique Pet Care Philosophy:

DogsWorld Resort Staff

At DogsWorld, we are firm believers in what we call “The Dog Lifestyle”. The Dog Lifestyle recognizes that our dogs are not just pets or accessories, but full-fledged family members for whom we want the very best. There are no other pets that we interact with, exercise with, do sports with and take out with us into the world and include in our lives as much as dogs. Dog owners love to talk about their dogs and take their dogs out to meet other dog owners and their dogs. We want them to live the happiest and most fulfilling lives we can provide. We know that, like us, they are extremely social animals and when we have to be apart from them we miss them and know how much they miss us.

Our mission at DogsWorld Resort is to make sure that your dog will have the most fun, fulfilling time they could have, in the healthiest and safest environment possible, when you can’t be there to take care of them. That is our promise, whether they come for extended lodging, daycare or just a quick visit to our spa. In order to make this a reality we have designed a new, better kind of experience so that both our clients and their canines can enjoy the dog lifestyle to the fullest.

At DogsWorld, we only have all natural, North American, environmentally friendly and high quality products. In addition, we give your dog only filtered water throughout their day. Your furry friend will have plenty of indoor and outdoor playtime, and appropriate down time in between.

Giving Back to the Jupiter, FL Community:

Because we know how much dogs add to our lives, we go to great lengths to promote all dogs, regardless of their birth circumstances, and that is why we pledge part of our proceeds every year go to the following area causes:

  • Animal Rescue
  • Service dog training and placement
