This is a one stop shop for all of your dog's needs. They have dog day care with convenient hours for drop off and pick and the staff oversee the play groups so the dogs are supervised at all times. My dog doesn't mind boarding anymore because he has a blast playing instead of having the dog sitter let him out twice a day. The training is amazing and taught me how to train my dog.
This facility is absolutely the best in the valley. The facility was clean and the staff were professional and helpful. We used Lopci for training, boarding and grooming services and will continue to use them in the future. I would highly recommend them to any dog owner.
Every time I take my chocolate lab, buddy to Leader of the Pack for day care, he never wants to go home. The staff at Leader of the Pack is the best. They give all the dogs all of their attention while they are there.
It is the only place my family is comfortable boarding buddy overnght when we go on vacation. Lisa gives every dog a warm welcome and I know Buddy is in the best of hands.
We also went thru Leader of the Pack's Adult basic training class with Buddy and we learned so much as a family. We had no idea that we were doing so many things wrong and that was why Buddy was not seeing us as pack leaders. All that has changed now. Buddy does not run out the front door when the door bell rings, he doesn't jump on the guests, he comes when called, and the kids can walk him without pulling!
We don't know what we would do without
Leader of the Pack!
Issues included not informing us that the dog cams were undergoing renovation during our dog’s stay, picking up our dog with an unacceptable physical appearance, and our dog contracting conjunctivitis during his stay there which led to an additional vet bill.
At first, Lisa, the owner wanted to resolve our issues and make things better. She even offered to pay the vet bill. When we followed up with her the next week, Lisa did a COMPLETE 180 degrees on her view of the situation. She started to attack us, saying we were belligerent and rude to her employees, blaming US for our dog's unhealthy appearance when we picked him up, and stating the conjunctivitis was due to our dog's allergies!
Problem #1: She said that we were rude to her employees and that we "needed help". We were merely voicing our disappointment of the fact that a major part of the expected service of their business was not included, and we were not informed beforehand of this change.
Problem #2: She said at time of drop off, once we were told there would be no dog cams, that it didn't appear to be an issue. Of course it was an issue, but as we were leaving for the airport in less than 10 hours, what other last minute boarding option did I have?
Problem #3: When we complained about the physical appearance of our dog that was left in THEIR care for the past 5 days, she turned the table on us and said that we were bad parents and don't take care of our dog's grooming.
Problem #4: The owner blamed US for the pink eye and said that it was due to allergies. According to our vet, the conjunctivitis was a bacterial infection. The vet confirmed that this case was in no way caused by any allergy that our dog has.
When a business owner decides to shift the blame back on its customers for its lack of professionalism, they need to be called out. It is extremly sad that it has had to come down to this point. Save yourself the stress and petty drama and send your loved ones elsewhere.
