GoDog, The Beach Company Elevate Pet-Friendly Living Experience in Summerville

Key Development Players Bring GoDog’s Pet Care Services to Fast-Growing South Carolina Community

"We are delighted to partner with GoDog in bringing an exceptional pet care experience to Nexton. GoDog's reputation as a 'Best in Class' operator in the pet hospitality industry and their commitment to excellence resonates with our vision for enhancing the lifestyle offerings at Nexton."
JC Darby
Development Manager at The Beach Company

GoDog®, an emerging premium pet care provider, announced today a collaboration with The Beach Company, a Charleston, S.C.-based full-service real estate firm. This strategic partnership symbolizes the mutual goal of crafting a dynamic and pet-centric epicenter within Nexton, the visionary mixed-use community in Summerville, S.C. where it will offer a comprehensive pet hospitality concept with a range of pet service offerings, including dog boarding, daycare, bathing services and a membership-based dog park and bar.

Located near the vibrant Charleston suburb of Summerville, GoDog will emerge as the perfect solution to growing demand for premier pet services. With a considerable population of working millennials who seek reliable pet care solutions, Nexton recognized a significant gap on its side of I-26. Bridging this gap will provide pet owners who live or work at Nexton, unparalleled services and opportunities for socialization, both for pets and pet parents.

“We are delighted to partner with GoDog in bringing an exceptional pet care experience to Nexton,” stated JC Darby, Development Manager of The Beach Company. “GoDog’s reputation as a ‘Best in Class’ operator in the pet hospitality industry and their commitment to excellence resonates with our vision for enhancing the lifestyle offerings at Nexton.”

GoDog’s innovative approach to pet care, facilitating pet owners’ interaction with their beloved companions and fellow pet aficionados, harmoniously corresponds with Nexton’s commitment to nurturing community bonds. The facility will also serve as a convenient meeting place for friends from across the region. Pet parents can convene with their pets in tow through GoDog:SOCIAL, its expansive outdoor dog park and bar. This exclusive membership-based haven allows pet owners to unwind while their furry companions play.

“We’re elated to create this partnership with The Beach Company and Nexton, bringing our unique pet care concept to life within this lively community,” says Amy Nichols, CEO of GoDog. “The Beach Company’s reputation as an outstanding leader in residential and commercial development makes them an ideal partner to complement our vision. Nexton’s dedication to cutting-edge initiatives and creating a sense of togetherness echoes our own core objective of providing unmatched pet care services.”

For Nexton’s daily commuters, the facility’s convenient location ensures seamless drop-offs and pickups, enhancing residents’ quality of life. GoDog:PLAY and GoDog:STAY, daycare and boarding respectively,  offer enriching daycare activities and diverse boarding room options that accommodate dogs of all sizes, and allow dogs from the same family to stay together. Pet parents can add on GoDog:BATHE services to ensure their pet comes home clean and happy.

“Providing residents with modern conveniences and thoughtful ways to connect with one another is one of Nexton’s top priorities, and we are excited that GoDog will provide a space where not only our residents can engage and socialize with one another, but their pets can do the same,” says Brent Gibadlo, senior vice president of development at Nexton.
