"
, owner of
, asked me to bring my two golden retrievers to his kennel for a behavior assessment before their scheduled boarding. He told" me to first obtain fecal samples and kennel cough vaccines from my vet, and have the dogs' records (tick treatments, rabies shots, etc.) faxed over. Only then could we set up a behavior assessment appointment. My dogs had the mandatory vet visit that I paid $107 for, and my vet faxed the requested papers over to
.
promptly called my vet and said he'd never heard of my dogs, and why were they using up all his fax
on pets he'd never heard of? My vet called me about this, so I called
. Without apology, he said he'd forgotten all about me and my dogs' reservation. After jogging his memory, he assured me that it was all coming back to him, and we scheduled the mandatory behavior assessment.
is 45 minutes from my home. A few days later, when I brought my dogs in, he brought us to the indoor playroom first. Immediately, he suspected my male was going to pee on the floor. I told him it wouldn't happen as they'd just gotten their morning walk. He responded, "If I had a dollar for every time someone told me that..." I said nothing more and he told me to go back to the office while he assessed my dogs. He told me the dogs were on camera, and I could watch them from the office. One by one, several other boarded dogs were invited into the room to meet mine. I watched my dogs respond with the obligatory sniffs and a little apprehension, but lots of wagging tails. There were no signs of aggression anywhere. I was very pleased to see this. Then he took them outside. I watched from the window while my dogs seemingly got along with a good dozen other dogs in his care. They watched my dogs carefully as my female tried to fit in, and my male barked a few times and retreated once or twice in response to the great barrage of dogs. Note: During this time, a pit bull grabbed and held firmly the neck of another dog while playing. The workers seemed to ignore this act. Although it was not aggressive, I wondered if things could be different with my dogs, or other people's dogs for that matter.. Although I was certain that my golden retrievers had passed the required behavior test,
brought them back to me within ten minutes. Too my great surprise, he said that my male was too anxious, and had not passed the assessment. I told him that I didn't think that ten minutes was enough time to truly assess. He dismissed this, his mind clearly made up, and said I could bring them back another day for another try. Since I hadn't witnessed my dog acting overly anxious, I didn't see the point in trying to change
's mind. I took my paperwork and left. I should feel relief that I won't be leaving my dogs in his care, but I was looking for cage-free boarding, and it's hard to come by. Folks should think twice before jumping through
's pre-visit hoops. There are no guarantees that even your gentlest family dog will pass muster in this kennel. For the $50 per night that
charges for two dogs, you might as well get a sitter to come stay at your home. You'll save yourself the added vet expenses....and lots of aggravation.

"They did a good job. We had planned to have our two dogs kenneled together, but our female was not handling it very well. They contacted us immediately and followed as they said they" would do. We ended up having them separated and everything worked out well.

"It was completely fine - no problems at all. Which is great!
was easily accessible when we were out of town and we felt that she was completely trustworthy." Since the
Pad is for smaller dogs only it is a friendly atmosphere and all the dogs all seemed to be comfortable there. It's not a big kennel - it's a home for a small group of visitors and
is clearly a huge dog lover who is dedicated to "her babies". She is a natural. We could not find a better place for our dog to stay when he cannot be with us!

It went surprisingly well. My dogs are house dogs who love people but not crazy about other dogs. The informed when that they did very well. It look like they were very well cared for. They were very kind and patient when I called several times to check on them. I left some things for them, including beds, and everything was returned to me. I feel very comfortable in using them again.

I know my dogs are happy when they their tails are wagging and they are "dancing" around to go out. Outstanding service. The dog walkers and transporters are courteous and kind. They always give updates or leave notes if we're not home.

There have been situations where we had to travel at the last minute and they've always been able to work out my husband and my's crazy schedule. They've always been nothing short of professional and caring.

It was great. She was punctual. She is strict about setting up a specific drop off and pickup time but this is good because she can minimize the confusion of picking up when all the other dogs are running around and she can spend some time talking to you about how the visit went. I liked her very much - her house was clean, her yard was clean. I will definitely use her services again.

They are absolutely my kennel of choice. Each cat has it's own room with a window and a shelf so they can look out the window. They feed twice a day and also cater to the individual cat's needs. They are amazing with my cat and I would definitely recommend them to others. They take wonderful care of your cats. :)
