Coming Soon, Island Pet Lodge - March 2011
For longtime island residents, Kim and Mike Ludwig, the soon to open "Island Pet Lodge" is a dream come true. The couple has taken over what was previously the garden center property on Alvin Road and are building a one stop shop for pet care. The facility will have a kennel, day care, grooming area, obedience and gun dog training and pet photography for cats and dogs. The reception area will feature a family room type feel with a fireplace and comfortable seating. The kennel will feature 20 spaces with 5'x4' indoor and 10'x4' covered outdoor areas for each animal. The day care area will be divided into two areas for large and small dogs with access to the outside. Mike Ludwig began training Labrador Retrievers as hunting dogs when he was 16 years old. He has been breeding and training Field Bred English Cocker Spaniels for more than 15 years. One of their first dogs, Buster, is featured on the charming sign at the front of the property. Kim has been a pet photographer and a mom to many dogs over the years. The combination of the Ludwigs' love for animals and enthusiasm for their new enterprise should make the lodge a success. An early June opening is anticipated.
