Success! Thanks for posting your review of Dogwood Cage-Free Daycare Center for Dogs. You’ve done the world some good today.

Jake loves this place!!!!!

We have been bringing our dog, Jake, to Dogwood for daycare and boarding for over a year now, and he absolutly loves it! Kate and Mick are so good to him--and to my husband and me! Recently, we moved to Honolulu, leaving Jake at Dogwood to wait out the quarantine period that Hawaii requires of all animals. He's been there for about six weeks now, and I couldn't be more pleased with the care he's getting. Kate se... view more

A warm, welcoming happy place for dogs

This is a 2010 update...We have been bringing our dog Champ to Dogwood a few times a week since summer 2008 and we love it!! More importantly, so does he! It's a special place! Kate, Mick, and Barbie take great care of Champ. You can tell they are true dog lovers (they have a few rescue pups of their own who are with them at dogwood.) Everyone is greeted by name when we arrive and Champ is so happy to see eve... view more

Warning warning warning

There are so many warning signs, don't ignore them. First of all they really hate it when you try to peek into their kennel. The guy gets very very angry and cusses at you. They only allow certain days and certain time slots for open house where you can see the actual kennel. Why? Because they're hiding something you don't want to see-- overcrowding, filth, everything. Secondly, I really hated how Kate kept making me... view more

Used to be really good, has gone down, way down since 2008

This place used to be good, really really good. A few years ago, it was nice, clean, and Kate was very helpful. It's been around for a few years, but Kate and her companion really needs a vacation. She's gotten so rude to the point that I think she doesn't want to run the daycare anymore. I think she's pretty much lost it. The place is no longer clean, and let me tell ya, the place is so heavily guarded that they fr... view more

Discipline, strict rules, good training. Rude but good.

Lots of people mentioned that the staff is rude. Yes! They are very very rude. The first time I took my puppy in I felt rushed by Kate and her helper. Another time I tried to calm my puppy at the front gate but the man was very impatience and said he has things to do. Basically they're very busy and just want to minimize interacting with the customers.\r \r Keep in mind that I also tried other kennels besides Dogwo... view more

I have been taking my dog, Wiley, to Dogwood since he was 10 months old. The owners treat Wiley like their own. I bring him in at 7am and am greeted with a warm hello every morning. I live in Sherman Oaks and although there are some other daycares on my way to work I wouldn't go anywhere else ever! I cannot say enough about Dogwood. Kate is an absolute doll and can help you with your training needs as well. It is a o... view more

Unbelievably Rude

When I tried to look over the fence at my dog, I was told to ""f*ck off"" by one of the owners. I was stunned. I was not standing there long, nor had the dogs seen me. I immediately demanded my dog and then Kate, the other owner, barely apologized and then asked me ""what I expected her to do about it""\r \r They were rude and miserable from day one and they will treat your dog like livestock. There are at leas... view more

Dogwood Cage-Free Daycare Center

I am very suprised with some of the previous reviews because my chocolate lab, Pippa, has had great care and supervision at Dogwood! The interview process is extensive but the result is a safe environment for properly behaved canines, which is a great place for my dog to be. Kate and Mick have incredible skills which allow them to successfully manage this daycare with such a wide variety of dogs, personalities and... view more

Just...the best.

I began taking my two labs to Dogwood about 3 years ago?and today I continue. I drop off every morning, and pick up everyday after work. My dogs are always happy, well cared for, and treated with love. I knew it would be a wonderful place, when during our interview, I looked around and saw all the pictures of Kate and Mick?s Dogwood family. If you point to any picture, you will be told the names of the pups, and sto... view more

I agree with the ""beware"" comment. I took my dog in for his interview last week. The first thing the cold woman owner did was separate me from my dog. I thought she was taking him into the pen to get acquainted with the other dogs but was not sure since she did not tell me. I went into the office to fill out paperwork and could here him crying from the other room. She had put him into a cage in the back room and he... view more
