We had never boarded our dogs before and we're nervous about leaving them, but was reassured that they would be fine. We made sure that the two would stay together to lesson the stress of the separation until we returned. We should have trusted our gut feeling as soon as we walked in the door. The smell almost makes you gag. I didn't expect it to smell like roses or anything, but it was ridiculous to have the place ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
Wee-Bark KennelAdd to mybook
The place is expected to have a smell its a puppy selling pet store, boarding, grooming but they are really harsh grooming the animals. All the dogs get covered in fleas, and stay scared there. They never get walked or any kind of human connection there, just food thrown at them and water that's it. The new gal that works there acts like she loves animals but you sure cant tell it. They focus on selling all their bre... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
Ok, I'll address this, point by point. Our grooming room is right up front, for all to see. We're not hid in some back room, any customer can watch us interacting with the dogs. We have, in fact, seating for the customer that would like for their dog. Many of the dogs, if not on a leash, push open the swinging door, and come right on in to see us, wagging & wiggling all the while. We are very good to all our dogs, and it shows in how they react to us. In fact, a few of our grooming dogs have had to be tranqulized at their former groomers, those dogs are now able to be groomed drug free, at our suggestion. Unfortunatly, some of the dogs coming in have fleas. We give free flea baths to grooming dogs & will give a flea bath to any boarding dog we feel needs it. A flea will jump off a dog to bite me, so we attack that problem on many levels. Boarding dogs are shown a lot of kindness, we understand it is stressfull for them to be away from their loved ones and their homes. That is why we encourage the owners to bring fimilar toys, snacks and beds for their pets. All of us at Wee-Bark are extreme animal lovers, it is a requirement to work there. We bring our own pets to work, groom them & board them there. We only show puppies to customers requesting to see one. Our 'focus' is always on the needs of our customers & their dogs. All moms are given soft clean bedding. There probably wouldn't be many puppies survive on cold concrete. In closing, please remember, their are many reasons for leaving a reveiw, not all of which, are honorable.
Our dog got kennel cough from this facility. The vet said that they've had many instances of kennel cough in dogs who stay there.Like this review?Yes  (1)|Flag Abuse
So sorry to hear your dog got kennel cough. Boarding your dog in a kennel is much like sending your child to kindergarden, until their immune system is challenged, they are at risk. A Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine is similar to a flu shot, it will protect aganist some, but not all strains of the virus. Actually, considering the number of dogs we board, a very small percentage of dogs contract kennel cough. Again, sorry.
I feel compelled to write about my experiences at this kennel, all of which have been good. In the 4 years I've been a customer, it has always been clean, smelled as I would expect a busy pet business to smell like (not bad, but they do a brisk business with several baths going on), but the main thing I like is the boarding dogs all seem happy, the staff has nice things, in nice voices to say to the dogs, and mine is... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
I always use wee-Bark for grooming & think they do a great job at a good price, so when my mom became ill, I needed a place for my dog to stay, at the spur of the moment. They, of course were my first choice, and luckily let us bring him with no notice. I liked the fact he could go outside anytime he wanted or could stay inside-his choice. I was very well pleased with them, again.Like this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
