I was recommended this place b/c allegedly they specialize in Newfoundland dogs. I took my girl there for two nights. I was told they also allowed dogs to run freely with the other dogs, to play and exercise instead of being locked in a kennel all day long.
I was skeptical when I dropped her off b/c I could hear dozens of dogs nonstop barking in the background. Just that alone must make dogs crazy having to listen to that day and night. But I dropped her off anyway. When I picked her up it was so plainly evident she had NOT been allowed out of her kennel b/c she immediately ran to the lawn and peed and peed and peed. When I asked if they'd let her out to play/pee, they said it was too hot that day. Well, couldn't they have let her out early in the morning when it was still cool? It was only 1PM when I picked her up.
Since then I have not taken her to any kennel b/c it's too traumatic and the possibilities for mistreatment are too great. How do we know what they're doing when we're not there to see? Now I get a friend to dogsit when I need to be away overnight.
