"They have a lot of acreage, they let the dogs out so they can run, and have a pool for every dog! They take pictures and email them to catch you up on their progress." They always bathe them for no charge when you pick your pet up.
really likes going there because of the people.

for grooming! She is warm, friendly, and clearly loves animals. We have had some negative experiences with groomers in the past, and feel very lucky to found

. My 12-year-old Bichon loves her. She listens, and seems to really care about your pet. Bichons can be tough to groom, but she always makes him look cute but still like himself.

Terrible....the place should not be (or maybe is not) in business anymore but then why have an answering machine when you have no intention of returning these desperate calls from people who have just lost a beloved pet and are in need of making final arrangements.
The end of the recording states that your call will be returned and to "have a blessed day". What a hypocrite!

West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
is wonderful. We used her for the entire 9 years we lived in Jacksonville and never used anyone else as she always fit us into her schedule even on short notice. She spoiled us but we didn't know how much until my new cat sitter from Angies List has been unavailable 2 out of the 5 times we needed her.
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
is reliable, trustworthy and loved my kitties. She is conscientious and goes above and beyond. One time over Christmas, we ran low of litter and she offered to go to the store on Christmas Day to ensure the kitties were well taken care of. In addition to the typical duties one year we had a household emergency and since we were out of town she graciously coordinated her visit with the handyman and let him in the garage. I highly recommend her and only wish she could have moved with us because clearly she's irreplaceable.

They are all reliable, friendly, responsible, tolerant, helpful, and able to handle decisions. They are a great team, and the owner can handle all kinds of my eccentricities. No better pet care anywhere, even at a 24-hour animal hospital!

I brought in my dogs for daycare the other day for the 1st time. We were quickly checked in & greeted. The dogs were immediately brought outside to play. Pick up was smooth as well, and they were given treats before we left. My dogs were happy & all tuckered out when we got home. I can't wait to bring them back next week! Review won't let me update the price. It was $46 for the full day for 2 yorkies.

Nick and
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
are the best trainers we have ever met. This is the 4th rescue dog that Nick and
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
have trained for us. They provide pack leadership and showed us how to become a pack leader, that is so important to any training and future behavior of any new family member. They use positive reinforcement.
Nick went out of his way to take
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
to hospitals, stores and other situations where he would encounter strange sights, sounds, other dogs (including aggressive and misbehaved dogs) and children (both well behaved and imps). With their help,
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
passed his Therapy Dog International Certification on the first try and is currently working on his DAD (Diabetic Alert Dog) certification.
As with all rescues,
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
came with his own set of challenges for Nick. He must have been hit, and had some fears, which were easily overcome with
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
's training practices. Now
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
is a well socialized, well behaved member of society. We realize that follow through is also important, so we take
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
there almost every week to continue his training and socialization in a pack/class environment which is off leash.
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
loves to go there and gets all excited when we get near
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
K9 and gets to see his buddies.
We have been to other training facilities such as Canine Bliss and K911. Nick and
West Hartford Kennels Provider Name Locked
's dedication to the dogs and their training practices far exceeds the training offered at these other places.

First, I must say that when I get my dog back from this place after boarding, she is much less stressed than the last place I took her. So that is a positive aspect of this place. However, every time I get my dog back from this company there is some problem I have to deal with. I have reached the point where I wonder if they will give me MY dog back the next time I board her. The first time I boarded her here, I was told that there was no left over food to give back. That was disturbing because I did not provide my own food that time, so I don't know where they were getting their info. The second time I boarded her here I provided food with a drinking cup and instructions about how much food to feed her using the cup. When I picked her up, they gave me back the left over food but not the measuring cup. They could not find the measuring cup! So how much food were they allocating to my dog? I never got the cup back. The third time I boarded her here they gave me back someone else's food! The fourth time I boarded her here I had to ask them to give me the left over food and cup because they did not offer it when returning my dog. The fifth time I boarded her here (and now the final time) was the worst. I had to ask for the left over food again. They brought me the food but not the measuring cup. I asked for the cup, and they brought me out someone else's cup. They eventually found my cup. Again, how much are they feeding my dog if they aren't using the cup? Then when I got home I noticed that her tags were missing. They said they might have fallen off, however, the key-ring that the tags were on was still on my dog; the only way to remove those tags is to force them around the key-ring, and they have never just fallen off my dog in the 5 years I've had her. I called back at least three times inquiring about the tags, and every time they said that someone would call me back about them, but they never did. It is unfortunate to say that they just outright stole my dog's tags, and I had to pay to replace the tags myself. I would not recommend this place. They do not seem to be professional or organized. I will be finding a different place to care for my pet. I think a C rating is very fair.
