It’s never easy, leaving our pets behind as we travel. And even though options are abundant in today’s thriving pet care market, deciding to hire a pet sitter or board your dog can feel bewildering.

The team at Green Acres Pet Resort knows that the challenge is real.

Serving Madison, Cottage Grove, Sun Prairie, and surrounding areas of Wisconsin, Green Acres strives to offer pet parents comfort and a greater peace of mind when choosing the best care for their dog or cat. It is always important to point out the benefits of lodging with a pet resort.


At a glance, pet sitting involves leaving your pet in the hands of a trusted individual – be it a friend, family member, or a professional pet sitter. While this option often positions itself as offering a more personal touch, it also brings a certain level of unpredictability.

  • Reliability: It’s unfortunate, but it happens all too often. When life gets in the way, pet sitters may cancel unexpectedly due to personal emergencies, potentially leaving you up a creek – and on an early flight home.
  • Routine: Unless you’ve scheduled a live-in sitter, the schedule of care may become unpredictable due to a sitter’s other daily obligations. The lack of a structured environment and around-the-clock supervision can lead to inconsistencies in the level of care and attention your pet receives.

Pet resorts, on the other hand, offer a more structured and professional environment. Green Acres Pet Resort stands out in this landscape as a premier choice for pet parents and their furry friends. We blend the structured, professional care of a boarding facility with the warmth and personal attention you’d hope for from a pet sitter.

  • Top-of-the-Line Accommodations: Our facility is meticulously designed for the comfort and safety of your pet and features a highly trained staff, and climate-controlled systems. Our team guarantees a healthy and secure environment where your pet can thrive.
  • Plenty of Playtime: Our private five-acre dog park and sprawling outdoor play spaces are safe and stimulating, providing an enjoyable retreat for pets year-round. Activity packages are also tailored to the individual needs and preferences of each guest, ensuring a comfortable and positive experience.

Cats also receive special attention at Green Acres, while enjoying a quiet, sun-filled retreat separate from our canine guests. This space is outfitted with engaging toys and climbing structures, as well as peaceful areas for rest, ensuring a serene and stimulating experience for your feline companions.

  • Safety Comes First: At Green Acres, secure play yards, continuous supervision, daily wellness checks, and pet-safe protocols work together to make your dog’s stay as safe and comfortable as possible.

Green Acres Pet Resort believes in treating every pet like a part of the family. Our caregivers provide personalized attention and affection, striving to replicate the love your pet receives at home. Our accommodations strike the perfect balance between spaciousness and coziness, helping to keep guests relaxed and content throughout their stay.


Deciding on the right care option for your pet can be daunting, but it’s frequently necessary. While pet sitting and dog boarding each have their merits, a facility like Green Acres Pet Resort offers the peace of mind and assurance that every pet owner seeks.
