"It did not go well at all. We had provided our dog a bed, blanket liner, food, treats, and a few chew toys, as well as having all food and treats labeled very specifically as per their" directions. When we picked up
he was smelly - all his toys, bed, and blanket liner were soaking wet with urine - despite their previous assurances that he would be "outside in the yard 5-6 times a day". He was also EXTREMELY hungry and thirsty when we got him home and continued to eat and drink for the following days much in excess of his usual. (I had to wash everything thoroughly, including the dog) We had previously boarded
at Pet Smart, even though the drive is considerable and the cost very high. I was hoping that this would be a less expensive and much much closer alternative. However, he has NEVER come back to us from Pet Smart with all his things urinated on, nor acting like he didn't receive enough food/water. I was very disappointed and my husband insisted that we never take him back again. I was very VERY surprised to see the high rating other owners gave them.

"This was my second time using the company, and everything went well as usual.
has been in business for nearly 40 years, they have a good layout, and the staff" does a great job of caring for the animals. They don't take credit cards so this might be an issue for some people.

"It went great, we have been bringing one of our dogs to
for five years, we wanted our new puppy to spend one night before their Thanksgiving stay, which will" be a week. Madree is the owner and LOVES dogs and she and her caring staff make sure the dogs are happy, well fed and exercised. They don't have kennels or cages, what they have is rooms with lots of couches so that dogs of like age and personality can hang out and play together. Each room has an outdoor area which they can go in and out as they please unless it's really cold then they keep those doors closed. They do have kennels on hand if you want your dog kenneled for the night to sleep. Our dogs always come home happy and tired. They also can provide transportation to and from Buffalo after your initial visit which is a wonderful service. We have two dog stays scheduled in the next four months.

The staff is very friendly and very caring and my dog loves going there. They make you feel comfortable about taking your pet there and they have super pricing especially for their boarding.

It was great. They are great people to work with. I usually use them every 6 months or more. They offer all the services so I can have them bathed before I pick them up or trained if I want or stuff like that. They do everything. It is $35 a day per dog depending on the size and kennel that I pick. It is less for the second dog. They recommend bringing the dogs early to acclaim them to see if they will work well with other dogs. They don't just take any dog. The trainer has to work with the dog. They keep the little dogs together and the big dogs together. They won't take a dog that hasn't has it shots and I have to provide documentation. They offer discounts if you take multiple. They are very punctual and very professional. All the other dogs are nice and clean dogs. Their owners seem very professional.

I have had a great experience with them. They are very structured in the way they will accept pets into the program. Before you even board your pet you have to go through a one day evaluation there and it costs money to do that. They have a lot of rules that I would characterize as almost over the top. For example you can't board your pet on a holiday unless the pet has already boarded there three times. They are very nitpicky so I don't think they are for everyone. They are designed to train animals, that is first and foremost what they do. But they also have a kennel and a free, open kennel where the dog can interact with other dogs. They have very strict rules and utilization policies that make it really, really hard for people that just need them casually. If you just need someplace to board your animal for a weekend, you would not use
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
because you have to have an ongoing relationship. There is a five or six page questionnaire literally on my two dogs that I had to complete for them. It is almost a psycho-social evaluation of the dog. Their groomer is a very nice person, but she did not do a very good job at all on my Sheltie. But this is not their specialty. They do it as a courtesy for people who are boarding their animals. The facility is lovely and is really nice. They have a lot of attention to detail and are very personable and professional with your pet. I probably will not use them again. Their hours of operation are great and their knowledge of animals is excellent. It was expensive for two dogs to stay there. It is about $40 per night plus a bath. The dog actually being there and being taken care of they are excellent. I think they are expensive.

is an outstanding service for those who prefer to keep their dogs boarded in a home environment rather than an institution-like kennel.

is 5 yr old

with a lot of energy and she has the run of our outdoor property when she is home everyday. putting her in a kennel is like a prison sentence.

We arrived at

us and take
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
. After a few minutes of familiarization it was clear

was a "dog person" and
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
took to him immediately. We went over her feeding schedule and walks and
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
asked all the right questions.

There were 3 other dogs being boarded that day and they had the run of
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
fenced in property so they were free to exercise under his supervision. The dogs also had run of the first floor of his home with many oversized couches and feeding stations available when they wanted to be inside in a family environment . My dog is a people person and she loves to sit near you and just

We have been using
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
for the last 10 months after a recommendation from a good friend. We take our 16 month Golden Retriever to
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
at least once a week for "Dpggie Daycare" to play and socialize with other pups. (We started this when the winter weather was so horrible last winter 2014) We also have boarded our dog here at several times over the last 10 months for various lengths of stays. We have been thrilled with the level of care provided. Our dog loves going to play--there is no boarding "stress" here either when we have needed to board him overnight. In the past when I boarded my Goldens at other places (i.e, Kennels or vets) they would be so stressed when we got them home--and they needed to be groomed immediately. At
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
, our dog comes home in great condition. He has had ample daily play time over the weekend when we are gone--he has not been crated for lengthly periods of time alone. There are no crates! They have boarding "rooms" for each "guest". I highly recommend anyone who wants a great, positive, safe environment for your pet to try
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
.
The staff is terrific.
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
and her staff take great care of each guest. Every person at
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
cares for our dog like it was their own pet! From

's welcoming smile in the morning when I drop-off for daycare--to
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
or
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
in the afternoon when I pick up my dog after a full day of play. They are very attentive to all the animals in their care. PLUS they post great photos all day long on Facebook. I get to see how happy my dog is and how well he is doing. It is a nice touch.
They also have very convenient hours for weekend pick-up from boarding! When we return home late on Sunday--we can still pick up our dog till 8PM. That's a real plus!
I would recommend taking your pet out for a "meet and
Ellicott City Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked

I love my vet and I have two dogs. When my dog was mauled last year the vet went all out to just provide the best services and was really inexpensive. He would be calling several times a day. His pricing is very reasonable. I was taking my dog in every day for pills, medications and stitches.
