About Polly Rickert

We are Curt and Polly Rickert, owners of Dogologie, live and work in Fredericksburg. Polly manages Dogologie, and Curt is a local physical therapist. We have two dogs, M and Pooh, and have lived in the Hill Country for over 15 years, after moving up from San Antonio.

Polly Rickert purchased this house in 2015

Why Polly Rickert chose Fredericksburg

After owning Dogologie on Main Street in Fredericksburg, and hearing requests from customers, we have opened this guesthouse to provide luxury accommodations to travelers who come to the area with their dogs.

Fredericksburg is a great place to visit, and is very dog-friendly overall, but most properties don't accept large dogs, or provide amenities for dogs. We decided to address this need with a place that is conveniently located, and comfortable for both dogs and dog lovers.

What makes this house unique

This cute property is in a quiet neighborhood, with large shady trees, a creekside park on an adjacent block, and a design that works for both people and dogs. The grassy, shaded, fenced back yard is a great place to play with your dogs, or just sit on the covered back deck and enjoy your favorite beverage. Or, sit on the front porch swing and enjoy the shade of the trees and the breezes.

Both bedrooms have featherbeds, down pillows, and luxury Bella Notte or Boll and Branch linens. Both baths have fluffy Turkish luxury towels, spa robes, and luxury personal care products from Capistrano Soaps and Mauro Salon.

We provide dog beds and bowls for your convenience, bottled water to keep them hydrated, and gluten-free welcome treats by BoJangles for Dogs. A selection of dog toys for their enjoyment, and a doggie clean-up kit to manage messes, completed our canine package.

Great place to stay with dog

  • 5 of 5

We will probably be back - downtown was very walkable, house had everything we needed, family and dog enjoyed it, and hosts were friendly and easy to reach. Wish we stayed longer.

Comfortable, clean and accommodating

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many houses in Fredericksburg, and this is certainly one that I will be returning to. I was there for a girls weekend with my long time friend and our daughters, and we also had a small dog with us. The house is well equipped for dogs, but the factors that made it dog friendly also made it kid friendly. The house was clean, with no dog odor, which I had not expected. The yard was clean, which I had also not expected. We have no problem letting our babies crawl on the floor and in the yard. The beds were extremely comfortable, so the mommies were happy. Polly was friendly and knowledgeable of the area and helped us find restaurants appropriate for little ones. We look forward to our next visit!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to getaway with our two dogs! The house is absolutely charming; immaculately cleaned, and well stocked with everything we needed for ourselves and our pups. The yard is fantastic. Very close to Main Street. Polly was so nice to work with. I will definitely be back!!

Adorable house, great location on quiet street

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for anyone with a dog, the yard is fully fenced and there are thoughtful touches throughout for your dog and you during your stay. There is filtered water provided for the dogs and we learned that it's best to give them that when travelling to avoid upset stomachs (who knew dogs could be sensitive to water changes just like they can be with food?). All in all a great house and delightful place to stay with our fur baby!

Wonderful birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Dogologie Haus and both times have been amazing. We stayed first for our wedding anniversary and decided to come back for my 29th birthday. We originally chose this home because it is SO dog friendly but we decided to book again because it really is a perfect spot for a weekend in Fredericksburg. If your dog is as spoiled as my black lab, trust me, this is where you want to stay. Toys, tennis balls, a great dog bed, and a covered dog run in the back if you choose to leave your dog outside, and you also receive a gift card to the dog store on Main St. But even if you don't have a dog this house has so many great features. It's within walking distance to main st with a footbridge to get you there quickly. The beds and pillows are so soft and comfortable it was hard to get up each morning!! And the owner, Polly, lives next door and she is soo friendly and helpful it's hard to top.

If you're planning a trip to Fredericksburg, with or without a furry four-legged friend, definitely give this home serious consideration, you will not be disappointed.
