Boarding Reviews in Saint Louis

I'm just now writing a review, but we've been using
for at least 5 years. When we lived closer, we used them frequently for daycare, but now we primarily use them for overnight boarding when we are out of town. We have recommended them to dozens of friends with dogs, who all use them, too.

I really love the cage-free (except for meal-time) environment. I love that they are staffed 24-7. I love that they don't nickel and dime for service that should be automatic like some other popular boarding facilities in the area. The people who work there seem to be genuine animal lovers. One of my dogs has significant health problems and lots of medication, and I never worry about them taking proper care of him.

We used their training services long ago (5 years?) with
, and it was great for awhile. They are a handful, and we should have kept up better on the training.

However, we are very unimpressed with their grooming services. We have used them probably 10 times, out of convenience when they were there for boarding. Our dogs were not properly brushed out prior to the bath so that any existing mats or tangles became much worse and were not taken care of after they were dry. And they often have cut them funny -- not following breed standards. I'm really not picky about such things, but I figure there is a dog-groomer's reference guide by breed they ought to have on hand to get the basic look/outline of the breed correct. If you have a breed with a very easy to care for coat (short hair) I'm sure they could do well enough with a
bath, but with a double-coated breed like mine, I have not been satisfied.

Grooming aside, we love
and rest well knowing they are well cared for by caring and responsible staff. The prices have gotten tough to swallow, but I have yet to find a good alternative so I have no choice but to pay for the quality care I know I'll get there.

Very satisfied with the service and plan to use regularly when I have to go out of town. My decision to continue using the service is based on the overall cleaniness of the facility, the location of the cat boarding area, and the price. Another major component of my decision is my cat is gets upset when taken out of his home and routine but each time I've used the facility he has not appeared to be traumatized or disturbed for having stayed at the facility and I interpret that as the facility keeps the trauma for the cats at minimum.

, Copper and all of the other staff at HDS are amazing! Our dogs are so excited when the alarm goes off in the morning, because they know it's a weekday and it might be their "turn" to go to daycare! The staff genuinely care about the dogs in their care and they always alert us to any issues or concerns they have about our puppers behavior and/or health. It is so nice to be able to leave them in someone else's care with complete confidence that they will be well-cared for. I can't sing their praises highly enough. We are thrilled to have found them and recommend them to all of our friends!

This is not a fancy place, but they sure seem to care about the animals there. The $22/day per dog rate is fairly comparable to other places, but they don't nickel and dime with the extras. If your dog needs something special, they're happy to do it. Our dogs hardly ever come home stressed after a stay - and only then, it's when we know they weren't able to be kenneled next to each other. The staff remembers us and the dogs and are really nice. Our only complaint is that drop-off/pick-up is only between 9am and 6pm M-Sat. We'd gladly pay extra to arrange for additional availability.

The folks at WGAH are great!! I would never hesitate to board any of my pets with them. The young lady who cares for the "guests" gives each one attention and the "parents" get a full report upon collecting their pets.

We started taking our dog for doggy day care because we both work all day and did not want our dog to be caged all day. He absolutely loves it. We cannot say the words "
Saint Louis Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
" around our dog with out him running to the front door ready to go. He gets so much play with other dogs that he sleeps the entire next day. Our experience has been wonderful. There are so many activities for the dogs to do and the owner is a true dog lover. We also really love that the dogs are not caged all day and that the facility is air conditioned and very clean.

I have a wire fox terrier, 11 years old, who loves
Saint Louis Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
for day care and boarding. They are very attentive to the dogs and watch them for any health issues. The first day my dog was there for boarding, another dog who was being screened, lunged and bit her on the face. The owner quickly took her to the vet and she received one stitch. The owner called to give me an update, the vet called to give me an update, and the night manager called to let me know how she was doing. They were very responsive. If

They gave him plenty of play time with the other dogs (they do ask you when you drop your pet off if they socialize well with other dogs). This was his first time at a kennel and we were worried, but it worked out really well and we will definitely take him there again.

She is incredibly reliable - if she says she's going to do it, she does it. She has inconvenienced herself to help us! I have recommended her to the entire neighborhood. What I like most about
Saint Louis Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
is that I absolutely trust her - if she thinks an animal has a problem she will always call. Once she observed that my cat was not using the litter box enough and thought there might be a kidney problem and she was correct. I have had animal sitters and pet sitters for over 20 years and she is the best one I have ever had! Price is per animal, per visit. The amount I pay is due to the amount I use her.

Great experience! They had space on fairly short notice, was able to keep him an extra day if we needed, but ended up picking him up a day early with no problem. They bathed him before we picked him up, and I wasn't really expecting that. If I have one complaint, the hours they're open for drop off could be earlier.
