Hi Cynthia, thank you so much for taking the time to write this outstanding 5 star review! We know how nerve-racking it can be to leave our fur babies at a new place and with that in mind, we are so glad to hear how pleased both you and Jackson are with The Animal Keeper. We are also big believers in "a tired dog is a good dog" which is why we love when owners sign their pet up for activities during their stay. When pets are tuckered our from their group or private play sessions, that makes the boarding process and being away from their owners that much easier. We look forward to seeing you both next time!
