Best Kennel in Denver or anywhere!

I highly recommend Academy Acres Kennel - I have been taking my two dogs there for many years - I have a Black Lab and a Mini-Poodle - they share a run - and they are always excited to go to ""doggie camp"" as we call it - Chuck and his team are so loving and give our dogs great care and attention - we always feel confident that they are with people who love animals and know how to keep them healthy and happy
Thanks Chuck!!

Our dog came back so emaciated & covered in feces, it was a wonder he could still stand. When we inquired about his deplorable condition, they actually had the gaul to say that he came to them looking like that! If anything, our dog was overweight (and thankfully so) when we brought him in. We took him to our vet who said it was his opinion that our dog had not been fed the entire two weeks that we had been away. (although we left them a huge bag of food and extra treats, which I'm sure went to the Great Danes that they breed there). Our dog had apparently become so starved that he actually ate rocks and had to be expensively treated for it.

My boss, who coincidentally just used this place not knowing about my experience, came back from vacation and found his dog had DIED in their care!!!! They didn't even tell him until he went to pick the dog up. They claimed it was doggie infuenza that caused it, along with a couple other dogs. However, if you do any research on it, you'll see that it VERY rarely is fatal - 5% of the time. I'm willing to bet that his dog starved to death.

If you love your pet, do not risk going to Academy Acres. Sure, a few people may have had good experiences, but knowing that they caused the death of my boss's dog and almost starved mine should tell you that the risk is NOT worth it. Seven Hills is a much much better place to put your pet!!!!

heated floors

I am so impressed with the little details of this place. The heated floors to me are so important since I have an old guy with hip issues. They truly care about your animals here and it really shows in all that they do.

I don't live in the neighborhood any more, but I used to use this business and have a fine time. It seems very caring and knowlegable about dogs.

Best place to stay for a mans best friend

Academy Acres for years have been commited to the well being of your pet. They know that your pet is part of the family. That is why they are always trying to improve the care of your family member. By offering play time, grooming, heated floors, and a Vet clinic located right next door. The staff at Academy Acres are kind, animal loving people, who do nothing but put the best interest of your pet first. As a former Kennel Manager at Academy Acres, I have, and will always reccomend Academy Acres Kennels.

Great family business, recommend to everyone who loves their pet!!!

We have had nothing but great experiences with Academy Acres Kennel. We take our golden retriever their every time we go out of town, and she loves going there!!! We always set her up for the grooming and the grooming staff does an awesome job, she even came home with a cute little bow once!!! We also make sure to pay just a little bit extra for the play time and she has come home with new tricks. We won't take her anywhere else!!!

dog care

I have been bringing Iko and Tosha to Academy Acres since 1996. I have been very satisfied with the care of my dogs. Michelle has done a wonderful job on the grooming considering that Iko is a Chow Chow and Tosha is a Keshhound. When I travel out of town I also board them and when I return in 2 to 3 weeks my dogs are happy to see me and have been very well taken care of, clean, healthy and seem very happy.
I would recommend this kennel to everyone and I have other friends and family that have been using Academy for years. They have become family, and feel that way about my pets.

Worst place ever for your pet

DO NOT TRUST THIS PLACe, Acdemy Acres is a place full of scandles and selfish people. your pet is not safe here and the workers chuck and andrea do not give a krap about your animals well being. they offer play time and if you pay for it i know for a fact the animal never recieved it. I used to work at this place and its no good. they treat pets with no care and treat their employs even worst. the have a cat room with insulin needles every on the ground, on the microwave, in the food they provide and on top of that they have cokk roache every where in both buildings.( where the raise great danes and in the boarding builing) this places is just wrong in every way. im going to talk to tom martino and im gonna try to get this place shut down every way possible. these people are no better than crooks.
