Boarding reviews in Saint Petersburg

  • A
    Excellent attention and care. They grouped the dogs by temperament so our senior spent his play time with others that were not too frisky and playful for him. There is a lot of play time in covered outdoor area. When we picked up our dog we were given a report on how he did and names of his new friends. I recommend whole heartedly.

    Happy Camper Doggy DayCamp
    Have been using them for years. I used to work in St. Pete and take my dog there for daycare. They have always been great. Everything from dealing with my dog's special needs (medication, special diet), letting her play safely, etc... My dog literally is about to leap out of the car when I get close by, and runs straight back. Even though I no longer work in the area I still drive all the way out to St. Pete when I go out of town to board her. It's an extra 30-40 minute drive, but while I'm gone I know she is safe and taken care of. Having a place I can take her without having to worry about her while I'm on a trip is worth it.

    Happy Camper Doggy DayCamp
    We just moved here from out of state last year and when we had to pull our dog from this daycare this week in an emergency situation, we were left not knowing where to turn (our dog needs to go somewhere 4-days per week). Our 7-year old mellow yellow lab had been attending Happy Camper in the Carillon area of Clearwater, FL for about 12-months. Inside that 12-months he was bit 3 times by 3 different aggressive dogs. In 21 years of dogs in daycare we have not experienced anything like the safety issues we have experienced at Happy Camper. The first time our dog was bit, we chalked it up to an accident. We were not happy that it happened and that our dog had a full jaw (i.e. multi-puncture wound) on his face nearly missing his eye, but we knew that accidents can happen at dog daycare. We handled it casually. The instigator of the bite, was the owner���s own dog��� a dog that is known to not do well with other dogs. When the second bite happened and our dog came home bloody (this time a deep lacerated puncture on his back), we had more questions. Still understanding that accidents can happen, we again gave the owner and her staff ample grace. Our biggest questions were: what happened (as no one knew!) and how would it be prevented going forward? The staff had to watch the video of the day back to figure out what happened because the dogs were not supervised. Naturally, when our dog came home bloody a third time and only four days after finishing his round of antibiotics for the second bite, we were upset and had (and still have) numerous questions about Happy Camper���s safety policies and practices. In our attempt to get our questions answered and discuss how Happy Camper keeps dogs safe at their facility, we reached out to the owner. When we didn���t hear back from her, we tried her staff��� only to be told we had to talk with the owner. Finally, the owner said she would meet with us, then failed to respond when we tried to schedule a specific date and time. It was clear that we would not be allowed to see ���behind the curtain��� of Happy Camper and that we were asking too many questions for their comfort. There���s clearly a problem with safety at this facility. We���ve refrained from assessing the causes of those safety problems without speaking with the owner. However, her demeanor towards us, dismissal of our concerns, and unwillingness to meet is as big a problem as the safety issues that she has. For safety, ethical, and character/integrity reasons, we will not allow our dog back into any of her facilities. We���re still reeling from this stressful week and saddened that someone in the pet industry, who had our dog in her care, would and could act with so much disregard. The good news is that our mellow yellow lab is safe, healing well, and sleeping at my feet as I write this. Incidentally, when we requested recommendations for a new daycare on the Nextdoor website, our neighbors responded with some great options. Two daycare businesses were commonly mentioned by the community and Happy Camper was not one of them.

    Happy Camper Doggy DayCamp

    This day care facility is for dogs, when I walked in, I could hardly hear the check in lady over the excessive din of barking.  I could not get over how loud the barking was.  Then I asked to see the "facilities"..... it was a small pen, about 11 feet by 8 or 10 feet.  About the size of a small bedroom.  That's it!  It was the small dog area.  There were already 10-15 dogs and I was there at 7 when they opened their doors.  Its such a small space for so many dogs, in my mind. The paint was peeling on the floor and it was just chain link fence.  There were one or two small beds, but no rugs or anything for the dogs to lay down on.  Not sure how long they would be expected to hold it before they were able to relieve themselves.   I know the dogs don't care that much about esthetics, but the small area was what really turned me off.  

    I have been to 4 other day camps in my old home town.  We are new to Florida and were looking for a new place to take the dogs once a week to get out of the house while I am at work. None of the other 4 day camps had excessive barking, a human was in the small and large dog area AT ALL TIMES to keep the dogs calm and stop any excessive barking.  YES DOGS WILL BARK AND THATS OK - but excessive barking at loud volumes by all dogs left unchecked is not healthy.  No less than two huge excessively poor mannered dogs jumped on me (while wearing a dress for work - thanks!).  I have never seen such ill behaved dogs or humans going in and out of day camp.  It was complete pandemonium.  The whole thing seemed very disorganized and I WONT be bringing my dogs there again.  There are so many other options in the area.  There was no human in the area to keep any eye on things.  LOOK AROUND FOR OTHER PROVIDERS.

    I have been using Kelloggs for the last several years for my now 15 year-old dog who has some medical issues. As always the owners treat her as if she were their own. She gets lots of love and care and the special attention an older dog requires and I can tell they genuinely care about her. I feel like I'm leaving her with my parents and so I know I never have to worry about her while she's there.
    All dogs not only have their own cage, they each have their own covered run so they can go outside and back in as they choose. and my dog loves that.  My dog's medical regimen can be a bit complicated to follow and Kellogg's never errs and they don't charge me extra for the additional attention she requires.  There is a vet next door to them which is great for emergencies but they tell me they will always contact my vet first when possible.  I've never had to use this service but it's nice to know it's there.  Their years of experience in the industry means that I can always trust their judgement when caring for my dog's special needs.
    Their prices are less than I've seen anywhere else and there are no hidden charges.

    Advantage Pet Center
    I have a small poodle and a Sheppard, lab mix, both are older dogs.  The staff at Pet Advantage are always friendly and do what they can to accommodate my pets.  They allow my pets to board together, which is really important since they are always together. 
    I have boarded my pets at Pet advantage several times in the past 3 years.  I know the staff at Pet Advantage will take good care of them.  This is a really Wonderful Place.

    I really hate to board my dog, but sometimes you have no choice.  Every time I have boarded my dog at Haines Road.  Everything has turned out great.  My dog has been well cared for and clean and happy to see me.  I know they take wonderful care of my dog.  My last trip was a surprise and I had little time to make plans.  They eagerly agree to board my animal.  It was such a relief.

    Happy Camper Doggy DayCamp
    They are excellent with my dog, excellent.
    I used to bring my old dog there. Now I bring my new dog there. Like I said, she is very shy and kind of a scardy cat. She likes to go into a carrier and kind of hide in there all day long. That's what she does there too. I brought her in the carrier. They put the carrier in the office and opened it up and then there was someone there every moment to react with her or play with her or hold her. They were there 100%. Then they tried to get her to socialize with other dogs and they did. They were not pricey at all. They were, I thought, very, very fair with their cost. I've had other places that are outrageous but they were not. When I went to pick her up, they had a full report as to how she acted and how much she ate and things like that. About a week after I had her there, they sent a note saying what a good dog she was and they enjoyed having her. It was just a pleasant little note to get. I thought that was extremely over and above.
    My dog was so happy to be there she almost didn't want to come home with me. She was there for about a week.
    They are a great distance away. All around me, I have these places I could board her. I could even board her at the vet but I don't want her in a cage all day and the only time anybody reacts to her is maybe 2 or 3 times when they take her out of the cage. This place didn't do that at all.

    The Salty Dog Doggie Day Care
    I brought my Doberman for a whole day of day care (7:30 am to 7 pm) on short notice, and he had a great time, played with other dogs and was well taken care of while we were moving into a new house.

    Advantage Pet Center
    I chose this facility based on the reviews I read- I'm glad to report an excellent experience. My big guy Gage has terrible anxiety and we were nervous to see how he would be when we picked him up- of course he was excited to see us but there was no lingering anxiety/apprehension. He had a big oil' tired grin all the way home and his brother Hunter curled up and went to sleep in my lap. In experiences with another facility, it took them a few days to settle back in, with their stay at Advantage they were perfectly fine. The staff were great and even allowed us a full tour of the facility in the months leading up to boarding. Clean, well-kept. They were reachable and also went the extra mile to accommodate a request. All of this and at the price paid- I'm so glad I have found a place I can confidently leave my boys and know they will be well-taken care of!
