"We had an unfortunate leak in our home causing us to move to a hotel. We also had to find a kennel for our dogs and cat. I called and made arrangements with
" . I explained our situation that insurance was paying and I was unsure of our check out date. Was told that it would be Fine. About a week later I received a call from the owner who had been out of town. She was unprofessional and well, pissy. She had no idea how long my dogs were there and had no payment. I explained that this was all discussed with the first
I spoke with and the owners response was, "She's not the owner. She quoted you wrong. You need to call your insurance and ask for more money." First, as the owner, you should ask the person/employee/family member who was running your business these questions before calling and attacking a customer. Second, if your business quotes and agrees to an amount, you stick to it. About a week later, another phone call, "You need to come wash your dogs, they stink. You can take them to the groomers down the hill." I explained that were were not in the financial position to take the dogs to the groomers at that time, but I would be willing to come there and wash the dogs. "No. You're not capable of keeping my drains clean of hair." I can bring my husband and I'm sure between the two of us we can manage. "No." The third week our dogs were there, I receive another phone call, "You need to come get your dogs. I can't handle them." I called every kennel option within 10 miles of us. No one had space during the Holiday Season. I called the owner of
and explained that I had called everyone in the area and would continue to
. Her response was, "they just need to go. But you kitty can stay." I moved my dogs and cat a few days later to a kennel 22 miles away!! About two weeks later while visiting our pets at the new kennel one over the owners mentioned that our dogs were substantially thin based on their breed. She was feeding them extra (canned food) in order to get them back to proper weight! WHAT!?!?! I called
to explain that I was extremely unhappy with how I was treated and now how my pets were poorly treated and possible malnourished! The owner basically said sorry but was not willing to renegotiate on the price! I do not recommend this kennel. Unprofessional business owner, not customer service oriented, and is unable to care for the animal in her care due to her age.

Their staff is excellent - very friendly and cordial -- which is important to me. I typically wait less than 20 minutes to be seen when I arrive for my vet appointments and not at all for my other appointments.

I have been using this vet for about 5 years. The vet and staff are very professional. My cat really likes going here and you can tell the vet really cares about animals. They have reasonable pricing. I have had no problem at all with scheduling. I can usually get my cat in within a day or two.

We board our dogs there and we get them groomed there. They have an amazing price for our huge dog. We have three dogs and two of them get stressed out about being in a kennel, but they're happy going to

We originally asked
Hildebran Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
to watch them for 10 days while we were out of town. Our plans changed, and we adjusted to only 3 days. She was flexible and without complaint. The price of services are not listed anywhere on the website. She charged $18/visit on regular days and $23/visit on holidays. This is a much better price than boarding our pets, but is more than we pay typically for someone to feed our dogs at home ($20/day)
She requested an introduction appointment and tour of our home, which we provided. She was punctual to this appointment.

was nice and did take good notes as well as "starting a file". She left the packet with us and requested that we leave it with the payment upon her first arrival. She requested the key be dropped off at her home prior to the start date in a lockbox that she has.
We followed all of the instructions. During our trip, she made no communication efforts with us. We arrived home and the check was gone, but all the paperwork and instructions she requested were still on the table. She made no contact with us after the dates had passed to ensure we had arrived home and our pets received care, or to return our house key. Other than the check being gone, there was no evidence that
Hildebran Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
was in our home. This is both good and bad in my opinion.
After a week, we called to get our key back. While it was a timely return -- it required several phone calls to arrange for the exchange later that day. When she returned our key, it was provided to us on a plastic ring with our names on it. When my husband asked what happened to the keyring we had provided with the key she simply stated she didn't know and she couldn't accept any type of keyrings with keys. (i.e., she removed it and did not return it).
As far as we could tell, our dogs had been fed and watered as requested. Nothing in our home was disturbed. But we were not impressed. Honestly, we've had better help from neighbor teenagers for a much lower price. We don't need our dogs to be coddled, but it would be nice to hear from whomever is watching them that all is well with your dogs and property while you are away.

We were told exactly what to do once we brought her home and all of our questions were answered. It's been almost 3 months since she had the work done, and she has not had any subsequent issues.

I had a pretty good experience. The owner’s response was good. The facility was well kept and maintained. There were also enough care takers for the pets. Their prices seemed standard.
