15As always, Scout was well taken care of and examined. He's always well cared for whether it be exams or boarding. BTW, they also care for my dog as well in a very loved, skilled, careful manner. I never have any doubts when they take care of either of my beloved pets. They're the best!!

Went for meet and
Dora Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
prior to taking dogs to day care. Owner sat on the floor with the dogs, answered all our questions, took us on a tour of the facility, they even have an in ground pool for the dogs.
This facility is cheaper, cleaner than the one I currently use. They also care for special needs animals and you can bring your own dog food, blankets etc for boarding. You can see your dog through the glass in the daycare area and observe how they are doing and their interactions with other dog guests.
The staff was friendly, professional and I felt comfortable (not like they were doing me a favor) leaving my dogs in their hands..
Will definitely use them in the future and highly recommend them.

Tuesday we dropped our dogs off the young woman behind the counter asked our name and said that we didn't have a reservation but they had a kennel available for our dogs wasn't to happy that they were placed around a bigger dog that wasn't friendly, left our food with the front desk and was informed that the food should've been portioned out which we didn't have to do the last time we boarded if I was told that we needed to do it we would have. We left for our trip to

, around 4:00 pm Tuesday afternoon I got a phone call from the kennel and they asked me if I was bringing our dogs in because we had a reservation, of which I informed them that our dogs were already there! and the woman said "really" wow! We picked up our dogs at noon on Wednesday and told them about the phone call, if it wasn't for the fact that everything else was fine otherwise this would be the LAST TIME!!

If you pick your pet up at 8am after a night stay, they will charge you for the full day on the day you pick up. Even though I picked up my pooch on Monday, I was charged for the entire day on Monday. Most places have a grace period for people returning from long weekends. This is just one example. Their facilities outside were below average. Facilities inside were above average including the bathing and blow drying area. Staff was nice; however; it felt as if everyone was reading a script. I will not use their services again.

stayed overnight in our home 3 nights while we were out of town. We had her come once during the day for a short walk because one of our dogs is crated when no one is home.

came to our house early evening, spent the night and left in the morning. She watered the plants for us. The house was clean when we arrived home. The dogs were happy and healthy when we got back which, of course, is really what it's all about! We will absolutely be hiring

I've been taking my dog here for daycare and boarding for over a year. Their prices are very competitive especially if you use their coupon in the Town Planner. The facility is clean, the staff is professional and friendly, and I never worry about leaving my dog with them. It's comforting to know there's always someone with the dogs boarding overnight. They can get busy at times especially during school holidays so it helps to book far in advance.

It went terrible. The groomer came out made friends with our dog and asked how much I wanted trimmed off. She said she was at about 1 1/2 inches of hair length at present so I told her I didn't want her short so maybe just a half inch trimmed off which would have left her with an inch of hair. When I picked her up I was sick. She didn't even have a half of an inch of hair on her body, it was much shorter than that. They also trimmed her tail and squared it off. It looks very unnatural and will take a very long time to grow to a natural look. We were new to the area and hopeful we would find a good groomer but not to be.

During my evaluation visit,
Dora Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
had Penny, the untrained rescue, walking in a 'heel' within 10 minutes. I was amazed!!! This was a dog who pulled incessantly on the leash and was VERY hard to control! He also took me outside and let his dog out of the very cool truck - several kennels were inside. His dog, a Belgian Malinois, listened and responded to many commands, and did some amazing things. It was very impressive.

presented me with several different training packages including him taking Penny for a week or so and boarding her and training her himself - returning her to me when he was finished. I wanted to learn to train my own dogs, so opted for the unlimited lessons training package that included two ecollars (an extra for my other dog) and receiver, both with lifetime warranties. Also group lessons so that dogs could learn to respond with multiple distractions. I just had my third lesson and cannot extol this program's success enough. My dogs are in control. They walk on a LOOSE leash. There is no more bedlam when we walk out of the door. They don't bark, jump or roughhouse. They are continuing to become well behaved dogs and they LOVE training time. I will say I had a previous experience training my first GSP with the typical food reward method of training. She did not respond 100% of the time. I wanted dogs who would come when called, stay sitting when told to sit and allow me to be in control. This became compounded with TWO GSPs...I had to do something different and a friend recommended

. I have never regretted this decision.

is knowledgeable, focused and very professional. He usually arrives early for our appointment. He is a real dog lover and they respond well to him. The ecollar thing can be offputting to people - believe me, it is not a 'shock' but more of a twinge. You only turn up the numbers when they refuse to listen. They will react just as well off of the collar as on the collar with consistent training. My girls are better dogs and so much more fun to live and interact with since we began training with

I usually go here to pick up a brand of grain free dog food which is difficult to find anywhere else. Once, about a year ago, we boarded our dogs and cats there when we were having work done to the house. The staff was cheerful and efficient, and they took very good care of our crew - no complaints! The facility is always clean and well organized whenever I visit.
