Company Founding & Ideals

Uptown Hounds was founded in late 2006 by Steve Robinson, a Lexington, Kentucky native. He envisioned a true resort for our beloved canines where all expectations would be surpassed and spent 18 months developing the concept and constructing the Lexington resort. Centered on family and hospitality, the Uptown Hounds resort is an all-inclusive home away from home, including vibrant activity for dog-loving families.

Our Philosophy & Promise

The staff of Uptown Hounds is hand-selected to provide the highest level of service. From our founding, it is this promise to our customers that we seek to uphold through all of our actions: Pets and their people deserve a place to play and stay where hospitality and cutting-edge quality are displayed throughout our resort (exciting, inclusive, impeccably maintained), our staff (energetic, dedicated, friendly), and our activities (family-friendly, creative, fun).

Affiliation & Special Designation

Uptown Hounds is a member of the Pet Care Services Association and firmly adheres to the Pet Owners Bill of Rights and Code of Ethics. Most members of our team hold Level I: Certified Pet Care Technician credentials. In addition, we are also affiliated with the Lexington Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Bureau.
