We have been a loyal customer of Airport Kennel for 15 years. I have owned two Chesapeake Bay Retrievers who wouldn t give most people, outside of the family, the time of day. However, both have loved Amy, the long-time Kennel Manager, and sometimes I have felt they would rather stay with her than come home with me. Back in June, we left our current Chessie, Dillon, with Airport Kennel. We discovered the day before that Amy was no longer working there, but frankly could not find anywhere else to take him last minute that we trusted. Our dog came home with a red eye and started having accidents in the house that we at first dismissed problems with him aging since he recently turned 12. A week later he was no longer having accidents, but his eyeball swelled up and turned bloody. When we took him to the vet, we were told it was an ulcer caused by trauma done to his eye by either force or a chemical. The vet felt strongly that it had happened while he was boarded. We recently learned that the new Kennel Manager used a spray bottle of vinegar to squirt at the dogs when they are barking. Not only did his stupid and cruel practice cost us $200 in vet bills, it traumatized our dog for weeks afterwards. I will not bring him back to Airport Kennel unless Amy returns and will tell anyone else who has a pet not to visit them either. They should have never let Amy go and the new Manager is not qualified to care for a dust bunny much less a live animal.
