Cottonwood Ranch And Kennel
"During the month of February my husband and I both had extended travel plans for work, so we wanted to board our six month old puppy Laney at a facility that would allow her to have plenty of outdoor time, one-on-one training and a competitive price. The Cottonwood Ranch and Kennel met all of our requirements! We opted to go for the 30 days board and train package. We live in Colorado Springs, so the drive out to Crawford took around 4 1/2 hours, but it was completely worth it. Ted's facilities were amazing...plenty of space for a young puppy to run around and play with other dogs outside and the indoor/outdoor kennels were well kept. From the first moment that we met Ted, he immediately formed a bond with Laney and we felt comfortable leaving her in his hands. During the month apart, I emailed Ted for weekly updates and he was more than happy to oblige...he even sent us pictures of her! Laney received one-on-one/group training on a daily basis. When we arrived at the ranch to pick her up, Ted spent two hours working with us on the training techniques that he implemented. Laney isn't a perfect dog, but we definitely saw a huge improvement! We wanted Ted to work on basic obedience and leash walking. Since working with Ted, Laney is a joy to walk with on leash and her temperament is calmer inside the house. My husband and I really enjoyed working with Ted and we picked up a lot of great dog training techniques. We definitely plan on sending Laney again if the opportunity arises. "
