About Blue Ribbon Acres

Blue Ribbon Acres is a boutique boarding spa which opened in Lovettsville in April 2009 at a new facility with just twenty eight dog-friendly runs and acres of beautiful, secure, open spaces for supervised play. The business, formerly located in Strasburg, Virginia, was moved and relocated on property with owner, Jennifer Donnelly.

Today, Blue Ribbon Acres is a full service canine boarding facility. We offer daily exercise, holistic & natural diets, training and a whole lot of love. When your dogs stays with us, we make sure that they are having fun and getting the exercise they need.

Jennifer Donnelly is a nationally acclaimed breeder of Bernese Mountain Dogs and Clumber Spaniels as well as an experienced dog trainer. She has more than 25 years of breeding, training and raising dogs. When her dogs are not showing in the breed or performance rings, they may be seen on her property. Call us today to schedule boarding for your dog.


"I have always loved dogs. I know how they think and what makes them happy. When you trust your dog to Blue Ribbon Acres, you are giving your dog a wonderful vacation while your are away." -- Jennifer Donnelly
