About Us

Little Lake Pet Lodge has 100 spacious indoor/outdoor guest kennels. All of our kennels are climate controlled, and have covered outdoor runs, designed to protect your dog from contact with other guests, while giving your cherished pet plenty of fresh air in our beautiful, peaceful surroundings. Your pet will have plenty of room to play and stretch in his outdoor run, and he can go back into his large private indoor space for rest and eating.

Meet Our Caring Team

Hello, My name is Sonja Schedin and I am the owner of Little Lake Pet Lodge. My very first job was at a dog kennel. That is when the dream was born. I am from Michigan and worked for General Motors for over 24 years. During this time I was extremely active showing AKC Shetland Sheepdogs becoming one of the top breeders and show winners in Michigan. The dream never died! In 2002 I quit GM and gave up my pension because I had the opportunity to purchase Little Lake Pet Lodge. I and everyone working here love their job and the animals. Your best friend will be cared for as if they were one of our own. Come see our beautiful and modern facility. I am sure you will agree it will be your pets favorite vacation destination.

Uncle Tre
Since I can remember, I have always been happiest when surrounded by animals. Even as a small child my first stop and favorite thing about the Anderson County Fair was the animal barn. Growing up in Clinton, TN was an amazing adventure. I recently came home from traveling all over the US with a 6 year vacation in Hawaii. I am excited to be home and to be a part of the Little Lake Pet Lodge family. I LOVE animals so much that I have finally decided to make it my career. I have many years of experience caring for animals, training dogs, showing cattle dogs, and more. I’m ecstatic to share my passion with you and care for your animals. Nothing is better than seeing a happy dog and them sharing that joy with you. I look forward to meeting your fur-babies and providing them with the best care imaginable!
