"Wonderful Experience! This is the first time I have used
. Please note: THIS IS THE BEST HAIR CUT MY DOG HAS EVER RECEIVED. My lil one" in usually shaking and running for the door after a haircut. He came out, tail wagging, looking around front desk (lil guy seems really happy). My mom picked him up and they lady goes "Grammas here". That put the icing on the cake for me. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a really great experience! :)

"We were fortunate to find
who lives near by. She is a very experienced pet sitter. We felt very comfortable having her come into our home." This was a brief trip and something of a trial run, but everything went great and we look forward to using her again when we need to be away. Our Rosie was glad to see us when we got home, but had obviously been well looked-after.

This is our full story ...
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
was staying at
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
while we had work done on our home. Around the 2nd or 3rd day of her stay, she was attacked by another dog in the presence of the facility owner. I was not notified, and she was not taken to a vet. Her wounds became infected, and many days later when the facility owner noticed this, she again did not call me or take
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
to a vet, but instead took it upon herself to administer antibiotics to
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
.
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
is not a physician or a veterinarian and had no idea what
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
needed for her injuries. She cannot legally administer medicine without a license, but that didn't stop her.
When I picked
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
up 9 days later, I was only then told what had happened.
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
was acting strangely and started wailing and drooling when we got her home. We rushed her to the
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
Animal ER right away, as she was becoming limp in my arms.
She had become septic, her blood
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
was too low to even read, she had lost a tremendous amount of weight, and she was severely dehydrated - all according to her medical records from the ER. They worked for 6 hours to save her life, including intubating her, putting her on a ventilator and reviving her after she went into cardiac arrest 3 times.
In the end, she succumbed to the infection, which had swollen her brain and was shutting her kidneys down. She had no pre-existing conditions, and was a perfectly healthy, normal dog. Both the ER vet and our regular vet are completely appalled at the behavior of the boarding facility and encouraged me to pursue this case so that this never happens again.
This boarding facility's negligence occurred over and over again during my dogs' stay - and
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
paid the ultimate price. I was not told one time during her stay what was happening, and
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
was never taken to a vet. The ER doctor told us that, if we had picked up
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
a day later, she would have already been dead.
Not only did this facility's gross negligence result in our dog being taken from our family, but they took away our opportunity to even make the decision for
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
to see a vet, by the fact that they never called once to let us know what was happening.
BEWARE of
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
and any place like it where your dog is allowed to interact with other dogs. It is more "fun and outdoorsy," but they are just not safe.
What makes matters worse is that our other dog,
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
, was also attacked and had multiple puncture wounds all over her face and body, but the boarding facility never even noticed and had no idea about her injuries when they gave her back to me.
Thankfully,
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
is going to be OK because her wounds did not become infected and she has now received proper veterinary care. If her wounds had also become infected, I would now have 2 dead dogs because I was never notified of
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
's injuries and she was never given any medical care.
It is my hope that this will never happen to anyone else. The pain of losing a dog in this way is unimaginable. It is truly a dog owner's worst nightmare when they board their pet, and it could have easily been prevented.

Our dog D'Arcy had a wonderful day at
West Hartford Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
in Carmel. The facility is clean and organized and the staff is warm and caring. We dropped her off around 8 am and when we picked her up around 5 pm we found a happy exhausted dog. D'Arcy is fairly young and active, but she fell asleep before we got out of the parking lot. A good day for all of us,

When I asked for the details of doggy day care they did not have what I considered doggy day care. I have no reason to pay to have my dog sit in a kennel all day alone with two 15 minute walks or playtimes. I did find two options that had all day playtimes with a two hour nap at lunch. They were with other dogs all day and had a guy to watch for any problems. I can have my dog sit at home in a kennel for free.

We have used their services for about five years. They have nice gravel runs for the dogs. Their rooms are temperature controlled. They monitor the dogs and even have cameras all over the property. She spends all of her time outside barking at all the dogs. Because she will get dirty, we can call them before we arrive for pick up and they will bathe her so that she is clean and ready to go home. Their costs are much more affordable than the other kennels. I have been very pleased with their services.

I've been taking my cats to

for 13 years, since we moved into the area. we've always been very happy with their service, and the vets are even available at odd hours when a loved pet is getting ready to leave us.

I have been using them for about eight years. They charge around $22 each day for boarding. They also charge around $40 for the grooming that includes bathing and nail trimming as well. They are amazing. My dog had seizures and I had forgotten to tell them. One time I was out of town and they called me in the middle of the night to let me know. They take great care of him and they have always been wonderful.

He loves it! They were close to my home, which made it convenient. He comes home exhausted due to how much fun he has. They think of everything. They have a close-circuit TV so you can check on your dog. They’ll also give him a bath if I asked for it. They are expensive unfortunately, but they’re worth it.
