My dogs are part of the family and I'm very picky about who cares for my family. I've been taking my pets to Aurora for 15 years because I know that the quality, cleanliness, professionalism and compassion for my pets cannot be matched anywhere else. My pets' wellbeing and health are always the main priority of the Aurora staff. I've never found a groomer whose care and skill match Julie's. People stop me when I'm walking my dogs and ask me where they were groomed....that's how great they look. My pets love Aurora and so do I. I have peace of mind when it comes to my pet's safety and health while they're visiting Aurora.

I worked here for almost two years and the boarded dogs had better diets/meals thatn I did most days. The dogs love that they can go outside After working at other kennels that do not allow their dogs outside for dailly sunshine I now understand how important it is to the dogs' mental health. The owner may be direct but she puts your pets first. This is only to insure that no dogs on the property are exposed to any illness or parasites. The grooming is great too. Long-haired dogs really appreciate shedding that undercoat for the summer. And it is better that they shed it at Aurora than at your home. :)
From the minute you walk in the door you are treated like family. Everyone at Aurora is kind and considerate. You can tell they love what they are doing. I was on a waiting list to get my bloodhound in for monthly grooming and was pleased and satisfied once Jed Bailey was welcomed into the Aurora family. I have used Aurora for over 15 years and only had quality care. I have peace of mind boarding at Aurora. I know that my baby will be receive exceptional care. Julie is so knowledgable and helpful with all things related to your dog's particular breed, size and personality. I have recommended Aurura to only people who truely love their dogs and want the best care for them. This is the best kennel in Tulsa IF your dog is family. Thank you Julie, Teresa, Pat and gang.
THIS IS THE CLEANEST FACILITY IN TOWN TO BOARD OR GROOM YOUR PET. THE OWNER AND HER STAFF ARE WONDERFUL. THEY ARE FRIENDLY HELPFUL AND CARE FOR MY ANIMALS. THEY ARE EXTEREMELY KNOWLEDGABLE ABOUT GROOMING, MAINTENANCE AND CARING FOR YOUR PET AND I KNOW THAT MY PETS WILL GET THE BEST CARE WHEN THEY ARE THERE. MY YORKIE WILL ONLY EAT THE NATURAL TREATS THAT YOU CAN PURCHASE THERE. SHE LOVES THEM............... A GREAT PLACE TO HAVE YOUR PET GROOMED OR BOARDED..............THE BEST IN TULSA FOR SURE..........
If you want people who are only going to tell you what you want to hear & offer you the latest gimmicks, then Aurora Kennel is not the place for you! Julie gives her utmost attention to the care of every animal. She cares for the physical as well as the emotional well-being of your pet. Shame on that lady for wanting to board a 17 year old cat! That obviously wouldn't have been in the cat's best interest. Anyone else would have kept their mouth shut & just took the money but that cat's well-being was more important than the money. That's exactly the kind of person I want taking care of my animals! I've been in most of the kennels & many vets in Tulsa & let me tell you, Aurora Kennel is head & shoulders above any other facility. It is clean, Ft Knox safe & as close to being at home as a pet could be. I would never leave my animals anywhere but Aurora Kennel!
We've used Aurora Kennel for grooming and boarding of our dog for 10+ years, and it's without a doubt the cleanest, best animal care facility I've ever found. We looked into boarding her with our old vet; their boarding facility was heartbreaking - hot and filthy! A friend told us about Aurora Kennel and we've referred several other friends over the years. But let me warn you, if your pet isn't well cared for, i.e. up to date on vaccines, no current sickness, fleas/ticks, etc. - don't bother because their motto should be ""healthy in/healthy out"". Be ready to be questioned about your dog's habits, illnesses, and health record - for the sake of all pets being cared for at Aurora. I certainly appreciate this because I know my dog is protected and won't come home sick. The most telling thing of all though is that if I utter the name 'Julie' my dog practically breaks the door down getting to the car, goes crazy when we take the 61st street exit, then barrels in the front door - she LOVES going there. My vet paid the Aurora Kennel owner the ultimate compliment - she said ""that lady knows more about dogs than anyone I've ever met."" We board our dog several times a year, for up to 3 weeks at a time, and I never think twice about her happiness and safety at Aurora - they treat her like their baby just as we do!
IF YOU NEED TO BOARD OR HAVE YOUR PETS GROOMED THEN THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO TO! I
HAVE KEPT MY DOGS WITH JULIE AND GROUP SINCE MOVING HERE TO TULSA IN 1987. MY CO WORKERS HERE AT AMERICAN HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AURORA'S AND THEY WERE NOT WRONG !! THEY ARE ALWAYS VERY ACCOMODATING WHEN I NEED TO PICK UP MY DOGS AND MY FLIGHT MIGHT BE DELAYED OR DROPING THEM OFF EARLY FOR GROOMING OR BOARDING. MY HUSBAND AND I WOULD NOT EVEN CONSIDER LEAVING MAC AND ANNIE AT ANY OTHER FACILITY. JULIE IS SO THOROUGH AND KNOWLEDGABLE DUE TO THE FACT THAT A DOGS HEALTH AND WELL BEING IS HER NUMBER ONE CONCERN. AS AN EXAMPLE, I LIKE TO THINK THAT I AM A VERY RESPONSIBLE OWNER OF TWO SCOTTIES THAT WE DO TREAT
AS ""OUR CHILDREN"". WHEN I RECENTLY BROUHT MAC AND ANNIE IN FOR THEIR MONTHLY GROOMING APPOINTMENT, WHEN I PICKED THEM UP THAT AFTERNOON, JULIE SHOWED ME A LITTLE
LUMP THAT WAS ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF MAC'S NOSE AND SAID THAT I SHOULD HAVE IT CHECKED OUT BY DR. HURST, OUR VETERINARIAN,
AS AOON AS POSSIBLE. I DID SO AND THANK GOD I DID. IT TURNED OUT TO BE A MALIGNANT TUMOR THAT BECAUSE IT HAD BEEN CAUGHT RIGHT AWAY
WAS TREATABLE AND MAC IS RECOVERING TODAY.
WE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO JULIE FOR HER AWESOME WORK ETHIC AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL
WHEN IT CAME TO GROOMING OUR DOGS. i CAN NEVER THANK HER ENOUGH FOR THE GREAT JOB SHE AND HER STAFF DOES WITH MAC AND ANNIE.
THANK YOU JULIE AND AURORA KENNEL STAFF !!

We were very happy with Aurora Kennel. I just wish it was in our home town so we could use it again! It is the cleanest and most quiet kennel we've ever seen. The staff asked a lot of questions before agreeing to board our dog but that provided me with reassurance that she would be well taken care of. Our dog was given a bath before we picked her up, and she looked great. I plan to use the same products here at home. I think all kennels could learn something from Aurora Kennel.

I have used their grooming and boarding services over the years which have been adequate, but not outstanding. The owner has consistently been rude and unfriendly. So much so, that I will no longer do business here. I have found another place that takes great care of my pets AND provides friendly customer service with a smile. So glad I did! Don't waste your time and money here, the owner doesn't appreciate it.
