"I like that for the vet you don't need an appointment; they accept walk-ins. For boarding, they text pictures every day and they take care of everything. The" vet is there if there are any problems, and they trim my cat's nails and give her a bath before I pick her up from boarding.

"So far, we are loving this place! It's kind of tucked away, so I didn't even realize it's practically right in our backyard! They came recommended" by our vet. I brought our 7 month old puppy for a one day trial. Love that they recorded her antics so we could see how much fun she was having. She made some friends and came home pooped! The facility, while older, seemed clean and well cared for when I visited unscheduled. The staff clearly loves animals. Their prices are reasonable, too. I also love that they board cats, as well. It's hard to find places that take both. They even have two adorable kitties who
you when you arrive. Cute! We will be bringing our other two dogs and cat here in the future. The owners live on-site which adds a
of confidence.

Great family owned kennel, very clean and owners seemed to know a lot about dogs. Nice to be able to feel your dog is safe, well cared for and happy when you are away. Will use again - thanks

I love her grooming, she has always looked and smelled great after being groomed. The staff is friendly and helpful, and very professional.
They are able to keep the doggie play group calm and happy, and were able to help ease my nervous 7 month old into being around some huge dogs.
I am very happy with the services.
With the piles of snow around the premises, parking is a bit difficult, but getting there is very much worth the effort.

Wonderful Experience! This is the first time I have used
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
. 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
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
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 ...
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
was staying at
Somerville 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
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
to a vet, but instead took it upon herself to administer antibiotics to
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
.
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
is not a physician or a veterinarian and had no idea what
Somerville 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
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
up 9 days later, I was only then told what had happened.
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
was acting strangely and started wailing and drooling when we got her home. We rushed her to the
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
Animal ER right away, as she was becoming limp in my arms.
She had become septic, her blood
Somerville 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
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
paid the ultimate price. I was not told one time during her stay what was happening, and
Somerville Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
was never taken to a vet. The ER doctor told us that, if we had picked up
Somerville 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
Somerville 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
Somerville 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,
Somerville 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,
Somerville 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
Somerville 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
Somerville 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.
