Welcome to Misty Glen 
EST. 1880


Our farm is one of the oldest in Westlake, established in 1880 as part of the Dover Township.  The historic farmhouse at Misty Glen is a beauty, standing strong despite its age in years.  A trip to Misty Glen is a walk back in time, a little piece of country in the heart of our bustling hometown of Westlake.

The Misty Glen facility was first established by the former City of Cleveland dog warden and champion German Shepherd and Shetland Sheepdog breeder, George Buehl, and his wife Esther.


We are new to Misty Glen, but we are not new to pet care, or to Westlake!  I grew up in Westlake with my brother and sisters on a 7 acre horse farm. Horses and dogs in particular have been a staple in my family life - and in my husband Robbie's family life too.  A home without dogs, well, just wouldn't seem like "home" to us. With the fast pace of Robbie's involvement in professional motorsports (see buhlsport.com), we truly enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of Misty Glen, which we are able to share with the dogs boarding with us.


Misty Glen's "sister" kennel is the Memory Lane Farm and Pet Resort - the premier dog kennel and renowned World Champion horse training facility - located in Medina, Ohio.  Owned and run by my sister Jenny Taylor and brother-in-law Jim Taylor, Memory Lane Farm is a spectacularly beautiful place situated on Columbia Road and Route 57.  Check it out sometime when you are out that way!


As for Misty Glen Country Retreat for Dogs, you can find us on Center Ridge Road, just west of the Westlake Recreation Center entrance (about 4 mins. from Crocker Park).


When you arrive at Misty Glen you'll know it is a special place, with friendly staff solely devoted to providing quality, comprehensive care for your pet, in a facility where safety, cleanliness, and comfort is a priority. Your dog can be a dog at Misty Glen -- with plenty of fresh air and lots of nature to view from our outdoor excercise area.   We emphasize individual attention to the needs of your dog.  Our doggie guests are happy to return and stay with us because we provide a fun, stress-free environment.


We are honored for the opportunity to provide loving care for your pet while you are away.

Please give us a call to schedule a tour!
