Trouble fitting training into your schedule?

Our Day School or Boarding School may be the perfect solution for you and your dog!

Happy Dogs Make Happy Homes


Our founder, Rayne, noticed a trend while working in animal welfare and rescue. Many wonderful dogs end up in shelters because of behavioral issues. These issues could be eliminated with proper dog training and adequate exercise. Keeping more dogs in happy homes was Rayne’s vision when she established Cold Nose Lodge in 2008. It's what gets us to work every day.


We care deeply about animals. We aim to put you at ease while your dog is with us. We offer both full and half days of dog daycare and even have cameras so that you can check in on your furry friend! We also offer luxury dog boarding in spacious suites complete with toddler beds.


In every interaction we have with your dog, we operate on a relationship of trust. Cold Nose Lodge has wonderful trainers on staff that practice trust-based dog training. We also offer a variety of options including dog training classes and customized private training programs


We are conveniently located in Alburtis at 235 W. Penn Ave., less than two miles from Route 100. Our facility is 8,000 square-feet of indoor space complete with a four zone heating and air conditioning system. We have an additional 2,500 square-feet of fenced outdoor play areas.


We are excited to announce that we are poised to expand at our current location. Exciting things are coming!
