is a great service. They always leave a note with what went on during the visit and they take very good care of our precious family members. The first person" we were lucky enough to have from
was
. That was about 10 years ago and she's been the person we request when we use the service. Of course we have a different set of pups now but each one of them have adored her. If we run in to her on the street, they pull to say hello and wriggle with joy all the time she's around.

"The sitter that watched my cats was amazing! She is also a pet owner and was sensitive to my "quirks" in watching them. She sent me photos and texts daily and also left" a little notebook diary for me! I'd never let anyone outside of family/friends watch my cats before but I left for vacation with peace of mind. I will use them again-AND they are very reasonably priced!

"Furry
has been my "go-to" cat-sitting service for many years -- and many different cats. My regular sitter,
, has known the" ups and
of my furry
for several years, including this year (until she went on maternity leave in September). I typically leave three typewritten pages of "instructions" for her which she has always followed leaving me at peace when I have to travel for business. (I would like to add that her "fill-in,"
, has also maintained Furry
standard of professionalism on her visits -- the last one being the September visit.)

My dog is 6 years old and he has only been boarded once in his life.
The scheduling process was easy. They treated me and my dog well. The kennel was clean and friendly.
When I picked my dog up, he was his old self so I know they treated him well.

It was a dog parent's worse nightmare. I boarded my healthy 2 year English bulldog, Tonka, and my senior Great Pyrenees there for 7 nights while my family were on vacation. Towards the last evening of boarding, I received a phone call from them telling me that my bulldog had stopped breathing while waiting for her turn to be groomed. A necropsy was performed. The cause of death of asphyxiation - there were no further explanation as the procedure was performed next door at their partner animal clinic, and they refused to give me a copy of the report. I don't know what else to say... Freak accident ? Dunno. Will I ever trust these guys with my dogs again. NO.

The people were very nice, the facilities were nice. Our dog's stuff smelled really bad when we picked him up. Like they were sitting in a pool of pee. It took many washings to get it out, one

and team are awesome when it comes to caring for our pup. They treat him as if he was their own and we can't say enough good things about them. We have a rescue pup so we wanted the very best care for him since we had to board him and we were more than pleased. He actually gets really excited to visit!

This is the WORST most UNPROFESSIONAL company I have ever worked with. I spoke with the owner on multiple occasions on the day before the services were to be performed and we had agreed on a price that was $60.00 for JUST A WASH for two dogs. I had told her I didn't need any of the other services, example clipping nails and cutting hair, and she had told me it would be $25 per dog BATH ONLY and a $10 gas fee. I confirmed and confirmed over the phone while sitting at the ATM to get the money for her and she repeated multiple times that, yes $60 for both dogs was correct. When her vehicle pulled up to groom the dogs they were 30 minutes late & it was in very bad condition and her "fabulous" employees looked as though they were strung out on drugs, covered in tattoos, smelled of cigarette smoke and had long scraggly pony tales (both were

) While they took one of the dogs into their creepy van to clean I spoke to the one who was in the company tee-shirt and confirmed that the grooming would only be $60.00 for the dogs and that I had cash. He looked at me and called his boss
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
(whom I had spoke with the previous day and confirmed the price with MULTIPLE TIMES) she said "You must have spoke with someone else because we don't even wash a Chihuahua for that price! I said it would be $140." At this point, before I got angry over the phone with the owner, who might I say is EXTREMELY rude and unprofessional, I handed the phone back to her "fabulous" employee and told him to finish the wash on our smaller dog and not to worry about the other because I wasn't going to pay that ridiculous amount of money to ONLY wash my dogs. I will say her employees were very nice and under different circumstances I may have found them charming. They did a good job on my dog but I would NEVER recommend them to anyone!

Our dog goes to

in
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
twice a week for daycare. He is very well taken care of and enjoys his time there. Sometimes he doesn't want to play with the dogs but prefers to socialize with the girls in the office :) I appreciate that they let Cash hang out in the office with them when he needs some "people" time. They are very loving and take great care of him. I enjoy the daily facebook posts of the dogs. This company is an excellent example of being socially responsible as they save and foster shelter dogs that are close to being euthanized. The girls at

work with the foster dogs to socialize them and prep them for their forever families. Its an amazing thing they do and continues to impress me!

I called and talked to
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
twice regarding boarding my dogs for 7 days while I was in

in late Aug this year. I also called a week ahead to confirm and talked to
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
again who did no have my reservation. That was not a good sign. When I dropped off my 2 dogs,
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
checked me in and he was extremely rude (that's a mild statement) and disinterested. I was not allowed to leave my dog's bed with them. I had to ask if I could see where they would be (Barb later told me that unless you ask, you're not offered one)
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
I had never been there. I was not allowed to see them before I left.
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
's attitude was ridiculous. I couldn't believe that a business owner (or SON of one) would behave in such a way. I mean, you try to get good referrals, right? I called Barb, the owner, and before I could even say two sentences she said, "Well I don't mean to make excuses for
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
, but he's been in a lot of pain lately. IN face, he's prob on the way to the hospital now." Who cares? You run a business. So because you're not feeling well, you can just give crappy service to someone? AND be rude? If there was someone behind me, then maybe someone should have been called to help.....
Honestly, I would have taken my dogs somewhere else, but my flight to
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
left the next day...
When I picked up my guys, I had to ask
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
where their belongings were, how they did (she didn't know), and what the chicken scratch was that
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
wrote on my sheet. She told me that "You want to look over here" at the prices but I wanted to know WHAT I was being charged for not just how MUCH. She also had that nonchalant, cavalier attitude. I also don't even think that they gave my one dog is ear meds since I saw no signs of it being given. (It's a greasy med)
When
Columbia Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
, came out with my dogs, I asked how they did and she said she didn't know.
I find this extremely unacceptable for a kennel. These are basic services/questions that should be given/answered.
If you look on their Facebook page, they wrote "That's life" to a complaint anout a dog being harmed in their care. That's the professional kind of care you receive at Brizes. Even if the reviewer was not accurate, you really don't say 'That's life!" to someone.
Needless, to say I will be going elsewhere.
