"First off, I would like to say that every dog is different. However, this was not my first dog training class as I have done dog training before. This is absolutely" the worst class I've ever attended. I received no personalized attention even when I was having clear problems with my puppy during class. The assistant of the class actually just sat there and watched while my husband and I struggled with him. I do not plan on finishing out the rest of the class and am currently seeking a refund. It must also be said that this is THE most expensive class I have found in the area and this truly baffles me. The facility is not very nice, it is extremely small, the equipment they have is not good, and it is not very organized. Now, there are a few others in the class that seem to be doing alright with it, though, if there is a question about how to deal with bad behavior with their dog the first answer is always to "ignore it and walk away". I am not exaggerating. I suppose that may work on some dogs but I can't imagine. Now, I don't want to be hateful or compromise the validity of my review by sounding hostile, but I am extremely frustrated. If you are considering this school, my suggestion would be to sit in on a class before you give them money. This training method may work on some dogs but you are not getting a lot for $145.

"I won't be taking my dogs there again. on day one my dog got a hotspot from stress (which does happen to him once in a while). They took him to their vet, put" him on two types of medication and then kept in in a cone for the entire time he was there. I booked the condo for them for the first three days and then they were to move to the less expensive run, but they kept both dogs in pricey room. When I picked up the place smelled terribly of urine and feces and the dogs, where filthy. I was told they had baths but I could tell that they were just sprayed with some type of perfume. I had to go straight to the self serve dog bathing facility near me. both dogs whined the entire drive home and were shaky for a day. not impressed.

Boarding reviews in Forest


There were two of them. Quite frankly, I chose that one because tit was all right turns. I've been extremely pleased with
Forest Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
. They are so friendly. I have had a check-up, I think its $200. I think every so many days, they give you a free day. We have used them a lot. When we have guests we take her to the kennels. The staff seems to be very knowledgeable. They are extremely accessible, very friendly and pay attention to your questions and they answer them well. You don't get the brush-off like some places. If the don't have an answer, they'll follow up, when they get an answer they follow up and call me.

We have been boarding our dog with Sandy since we found her in 2012. We are very picky about where/who we leave our dog with when we go out of town. We used several other facilities in Colorado Springs prior to finding Sandy/

and each time our dog was returned to us covered in his own urine and with new behavior problems. When I first talked to Sandy, she asked me to bring in our dog for a 2 hour 'trial run' at her facility. That time gave her a
Forest Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
to decide if he would fit in and allowed her time to look at temperament and ability to fit in. This also gave me a
Forest Animal Boarders Provider Name Locked
to decide how I liked the facility. I appreciate that she truly knows our dog and knows who I am when I call for a reservation. She groups dogs by behavior and temperament, not necessarily by size of dog. She has large, fenced off, outside areas for the dogs to run and play in by day. At night, they sleep in their own large kennels in her dog facility on her property. The area is clean, safe and warm (heated). She pays close attention to the dogs and their needs. I also feel she is priced very competitively. I appreciate how clean her kennels are and well taken care of our dog is each and every time I need to leave him in Sandy's care.

is a true gem and I feel very lucky to have found Sandy and her kennel for my dog!

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
- James or Mary R.

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
Forest 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
Forest 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.
