Piedmont Triad

Dogs By Andy is “lucky” to open our second training facility at Lucky’s Pet Resort and Day Spa in Greensboro, NC. Lucky’s has been serving the Piedmont Triad area since June 2004 and has strived to provide pet owners in Greensboro with the best boarding, daycare, and grooming experiences for their pets.

Boarding

You can choose from a number of different options when you are interested in boarding your dogs with us.

Training

We are committed to providing well-rounded, high-quality training for dog owners. A well-trained dog is able to communicate and function in your home and around others. At Dogs By Andy, we believe training is about function, control and prevention.
