We left our dog,

When we open the car door upon arrival, she runs to the day care center door, eager to rejoin her new friends. Watching her on the "closed circuit" display in the lobby lets us peak in on her and it is obvious she is very, very happy at
. Very, very highly recommended. (I visited half a dozen other area facilities before selecting this on. All of the others seemed like doggie "prisons." Dark, dirty, and understaffed. Visit other places first and you will almost certainly pick this one for your dog's "home away from home." (By the way, they have an "interview" with your dog before it is allowed to join in the fun . . . just to make sure he/she will "fit in" with the other dogs. They have separate areas to divide the dogs by size so the little ones won't pick on the big dogs! I cannot say too many good things about the people (owners and staff) who are there. They love their guests as much as they would if the dogs were there own. I have observed many dogs coming and going from

We recently went on a week long trip and brought our dog for boarding. My wife is always nervous to leave the dog at new places,
showed us around the facility and set her mind at ease. We also had our dog groomed before we picked him up and he looked fantastic! Price was very reasonable - would highly recommended!

The walkers at
Clear Spring Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
have been walking my dog for over a year and I have been thrilled with their service. Once a walker was assigned to my dog and me, we had the same walker every time and my dog became very comfortable and happy. I received daily updates and photos of my dog which I appreciated a lot. The walker was very responsible and reliable and I would highly recommend

When we got there, after calling ahead and got "leave a message", we were informed that the groomer is on maternity leave and they don't do grooming at this time. Business seems more for boarding.

My wife and I have used their services on a number of occasions and our dog LOVES going there. They allow him to play with other dogs and run all day long. When we get him home in the evening, he is a very tired puppy. They offer half and full day service and rates. Additionally, we have used them to trim our dogs nails and we have boarded him with them as well. There has never been an issue.
The he staff is very professional and has a strong love for their clients, your dog. They know the dogs by name and play with the dogs all day. They provide lots of water and shade on hot days and a very large indoor playroom with obstacles for when it becomes much too cold to play outside.
Going to

is the highlight of our dog's week and he is a very well adjusted and sociable animal because of the interaction with others.

We boarded our dogs with
Clear Spring Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
and Biscuit (HBB) for the first time recently. It will also be the last time as the following explains our experience with them: Prior to boarding (approximately a week) my 5 year old Golden Retriever had a sore place and bump on his hind leg. He had been chewing it and licking it and it was a problem that we sought help from our vet on. The vet #1 prescribed a collar to use around his neck at all times until totally healed, and prednisone. The area was nearly totally healed when it came time to board. At drop off I instructed HBB that the collar was to be on at all times and I told them he had just finished all his Prednisone. When I picked him up from boarding his collar was off. I ask why that was and the worker stated they had decided to remove the collar and discard it, saying it was in the way. She went on to say they had kept it off him for the entire duration of the board (5 days). I was upset about the situation. I told her it was not their prerogative to remove the collar without notifying me. I cleaned up the area as best as possible and took my dog to the vet where we saw a partner vet #2 in the practice. She was alarmed at the appearance of the leg and I told her that despite being instructed to keep the collar on, that HBB had removed it without notifying me, or, the vet. Together, we were very displeased with HBB. Because of having the collar off for the 5 days, the bump and sore area on the leg had to be excised and cleaned out and my dog placed on antibiotics and pain medications by vet #1. Now, we will say it is possible I may have elected to have the bump removed at a later date had it not healed up and gone away, however it had nearly done so when I dropped him off to board, so it is unlikely that would have ever occurred. The cost for the surgery was just under $300. We sent a letter to HBB to tell them about the poor experience we had. The owner then called vet #1 and deceived them, failing to tell them they independently decided to remove the collar. HBB failed to note that vet #2 had seen my dog prior to surgery and instead tricked vet #1 who originally saw my dog and did the surgery. They also presented themselves as currently boarding, when in fact 1.5 weeks had passed. We would not trust
Clear Spring Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
and Biscuit with our pets, nor would we recommend them to anyone.

1Marcia is a very kind, responsive business owner who provides a great and much needed service: pet care! I found her quite by accident and have referred many people to her. She is trustworthy and dependable. And her rates are reasonable.

was professional, punctual and a great communicator. She exceeded my expectations and was very quick to respond to all of my questions and concerns before, during and after my trip. My cat was well taken care of and I am very pleased with her performance! She also brought in my mail and even sent me a picture of my little one while I was away. My house was clean and orderly upon my return!
Fantastic!!

I was very surprised that the groomer was able to handle my feisty miniature golden-doodle, and was happy with the work their groomer (
Clear Spring Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
) did on him. The cost was very affordable and Now we are "regular" customers for grooming and we recommend the facility (highly) to anyone looking to board or groom your pet.

Our dogs had not been to
Clear Spring Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
in some time so they had us bring them in for the day on Friday to make sure that the dogs were comfortable in the environment and that they played nicely with others.
The dogs did great. We were able to watch them on video camera during the day...which was nice. The dogs LOVE going to
Clear Spring Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
and come home exhausted from all the fun that they've had.
The people who work at
Clear Spring Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
are wonderful. They clearly love animals and the dogs clearly sense that. We were actually a few minutes late picking up the dogs and
Clear Spring Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
was very accomodating.
My only issue is the price. They take very good care of the dogs...but the prices are high enough that you really need to think about it before deciding to use them. They do sell discount passes for 5 or 10 days...but those passes are only good for 2 months.
