Wish I could express my dog’s opinion. He seems to love it. Workout after day camp. The employees let me know of any issues. Used this business for years and would highly recommend it to anyone who cares for their fur babies.

Hi Alice. Thank you for the 5 stars and the wonderful review. We were more than happy to care for your puppy while you were away. We are pleased to know you and your dog enjoyed your experience with us. When pet's go home from boarding, we give them a complimentary spritz of South Bark blueberry spray (unless the owner specifies the pet has allergies). So that was the lovely smell she had when she went home. We thank you again for your review and for choosing us to be your puppy's home away from home. Have a great day!
