What they’re saying about us…

Really Great Place!
I recently boarded my dog Satch at the Animal Keeper in Encinitas. I especially would like to mention how friendly and pleasant the front desk person was both when I dropped Satch off and again when I picked him up. Satch almost didn’t want to go home. The $10 I spent on his going home bath was a real bargain. I’m used to spending much more at other places to have him bathed. It’s worth it to board Satch occasionally just for the bath! I’m really happy with my experience at AK and would highly recommend it to everyone.
