The Charlotte and surrounding area’s best spot for

Dog Boarding, Training, Daycare and More!



Why choose DSL?

Experience – Our owner and Head Trainer, Alfredo Ayala has over 20 years experience working with dogs and over a decade running the DSL dog boarding, training and daycare facility on the Indian Trail and Monroe border. He personally instructs each new team member through new hire orientation on dog behavior, safety, and body language. We know what works, we know what doesn’t work. 

Care of Dogs – Dog boarding and daycare takes care. We hire people who TRULY love dogs and treat each one as they do their own. To prove it, we let our staff members bring their dogs to work! So, the people who see behind the scenes, trust their own pets in the hands of each staff member at DSL! This includes the owners’ dogs, Sophia, Bunny and Reina!

Value – We believe that pet care should be affordable. While most boarding and daycare facilities in the Indian Trail, Monroe and surrounding area charge extra for daycare, we include it in our boarding service at no extra cost! You will also find we have the best rates around!  We also don’t charge for the myriad of Facebook and Instagram pictures we post each day!

Self care is important for everyone. The APDT tells us that dogs need to reduce their stress too, and they do it by socialization!


Your dog is part of your family. They deserve to have the same kind of love and care while you’re away that they get when you’re at home. That’s why at DSL, our philosophy is simple: Whether your pet is here for dog training, boarding or daycare, we treat every dog as if it were our own.

Our huge outdoor play yard gives dogs the exercise they need to avoid anxiety, and boosts their mental and emotional health. Our new indoor play yard allows for the same capability even in harsh weather conditions! We have multiple play yards to separate our pups based on size and temperament; this makes for PAWsome play times.

Does your pooch need a bath after a hard day’s play? We can handle it! From a simple Brush and Spray to our Full Bath, they can get as little or as much sprucing up as they need!

Dog of the Month:


Maggie is our resident good girl and the sweetest gal around! She has made so many friends during her time here and has always kept a smile on our faces! She is having so much fun during her stay here! We all love her so much! We know she misses her paw-rents; but we think she’s pretty fond of her home away from home.
