This is the ONLY place I will board my dogs. I have show dogs, as well as rescues, and the owner lives ATTACHED to the kennel, (not in another building, or even off premesis, as most kennel owners do), and shows dogs herself., so she is well aware of dog needs, behavior, and health indicators. The place is SPOTLESS, cleaner than ANY other i have seen, and is run to a T, due to her living right there. The dogs are given personal attention to their special needs, and, unlike others, you are welcome to take a tour of the WHOLE facility, because there is nothing to hide. Linda is very attentive to each dog. I have used her facility over the years, when I need to board my dogs, or one of the girls is in season. I can be assured if one of my dogs is anxious. Linda will take special care to make that one feel more comfortable, and there will be no dogs allowed to bully my dog, nor any worry about "escapees". My dogs know Country Lane, even though they don't stay there that often, and get VERY excited when we go there. Ms. Breidenstein also takes care of most of the St. Charles Police Officers dogs, as well as many of the show dog communitys dogs, when they need to be boarded. She is also personally available to take your dog to the vet, at the time needed, if there is a concern. I can't recommend Country Lane Kennels highly enough, and there is truly no other place i can recommend in St. Louis this highly. I have worked at several kennels, although not at Country Lane, so I know a good kennel when I see one. Reservations are needed early, as it is a small, privately owned kennel (no big corporation, designed to make money). I woliud trust my dogs with Linda (and HAVE) any day of the week. If you want the very best, without slick gimmicks, but honest good care, take your dog to Country Lane.

Most dogs hate the kennel or the groomer, but my dog loves Yips and Yaps she is so happy to go there. I know when I travel she is having a blast and well cared for. when I am not traveling, they groom her for me, she looks great and she isn't all weird when I pick her up. Other places I have taken her she has been shaking after getting groomed. Sometimes I even give her a special treat and let her go to day care there on days that I am going to have to work extra long. Saddie and I BOTH love Yips and Yaps so much!
I use the daycare for my dog who has lots of energy. He comes home tired every time which is great. The staff are all wonderful and they know my dog by name whenever I drop him off. Highly recommended! I do believe the reviews that are rated 1 star are by the same person or at least about the same incident as they have posted on other review sites also.
