Pet Policy

Sundogs Bed and Breakfast is 100% dog friendly. We invite those who travel with their 4-legged friends to take advantage of all of the pet friendly venues in the local area. The local National Parks (Antietem, Harpers Ferry, and the C&O Canal) are ideal locales to explore with your dog. Shepherdstown also has dog friendly restaurants (even inside!) and shops. See our Pet Friendly page for a complete listing.

  • We require all owners act responsibly with their pets and observe the following guidelines while here at Sundogs. Please be certain to ​ensure:

    • That your pet is well-behaved, house-broken, and will not disturb other guests (eg., barking, howling, jumping)​

    • Your pet is clean and treated for fleas and ticks

    • Your pet is never left unattended at the inn when you are off-property. Sundogs does not offer pet sitting services. Pet sitting services are available nearby at 3 Dog Farm

      • Your pet may be unattended and crated in your room when you are on-property but not in your room

    • You are responsible for all damage

    • Your dog is on-leash at all times while outside your guest room

  • Behavior

    • Well-behaved dogs are welcome with responsible pet parents.  

    • Dogs exhibiting aggressive behavior towards other dogs or people will not be tolerated for the safety for all of our guests.
