They kept my dog with no notice. Great service. Smooth transaction.
I had my dog boarded there for two weeks, I provided about 50 pounds of food and directed that my dog be feed 2 over filled scoops, about 2 lbs worth daily. When I got there to get my dog, I noticed he was clearly under weight with his ribs clearly visible and his mannerism was fear. They gave me back my excess dogfood, the problem however, it was almost the full amount I provided. It should have been about 1/4 full, not 3/4. My pets are extremely important to me, so this level of neglect really angers me. I will not board there again and would not recommend them to anyone. An answer that pets sometimes so eating for a short time, does explain 15lbs weight loss.
This kennel is disgusting. They have been shut down before, and need to be shut down permanently. We adopted a dog through aarf, immediately it was obvious he was emaciated (we have pictures) and within 24 hours he was battling kennel cough. He ate so fast the first few days he almost choked a few times, and he was severely dehydrated. The dog is three years old, and is not housebroken (we were told he was by aarf, as well as kennel trained) and if we put him in a kennel he literally beats himself bloody. In short, aarf was rude, and lied to us, as well as adopted out an unhealthy, emaciated dog. These people should not be responsible for animals.
I've been complaining for years about the deplorable conditions of both the facility, the animals in the facility, and Bev's lack of responsibility and customer service. I've never met a more disgusting individual, her business is definitely a reflection on herself. If you love your animals, you won't even consider sending them to Coshoks. I've witnessed far too many dogs enter healthy and leave in poor physical condition. Animal abuse shouldn't be taken lightly.
The people who volunteer at coshoks keep this place going ! Yes the building is older than time itself be needs updates but there is a lot behind the scenes that people don't see happening. The building has exciting plans in the future ! The people who work there only have respect for dogs and you can see that by sheer fact that aarf takes in dogs that others turn a cheek too. Aarf saves tons of dogs and gets them into nice homes. Aarf pulls dogs from out of state and takes them from high kill shelters. Dogs are taken on daily walks and fed properly. Aarf can use all the volunteers that they can get ! Come on down and help out the pups :)
I just had to clip my roommates dog's paw because the boarding place she had her at was so horrible that they let her get caught in a chain link fence in between having her sleep on a pee soaked bed and she came home sick and we have to take her to the Vet!!!!! DO NOT EVER use Alaska Boarding and Day Care!!! They should not be allowed to have animals!
Undeserving of any stars. I've been there twice now. The first time was during an adoption day they have most Saturdays. I couldn't even get passed the front door, it was like being hit with a wall of moist, warm air reeking of urine and feces. Second time, today, I made it to the front desk which had a swarm of flies in the center of the room. I had to smile to suppress my gag reflex. Again, it was moist warm air, reeked of urine and feces. I don't even think they clean this place properly. I wouldn't be surprised if dogs that stay here are all sick. I looked into windows to other rooms full of dogs, laying on cement floors without food and water. They were all barking like crazy, a really stressful environment for any dog you leave there. It was a disgusting, depressing and horrible place. I don't know why any dog lover would leave their dog with this place. It needs to be shut down.
Sadly, Pup Culture has changed owners. I pulled my dogs from doggie daycare because the new employees had very little training in dog / pack behavior, different breed behaviors and the daycare side was frequently understaffed or the dogs were left with no supervision at all.
Disgusting. Horrible customer service from lady at the front desk. Feeling truly sorry for all the animals there.
The kennel may not be the best but they are a far cry from disgusting and in need of being shut down. They have never been shut down by animal control so don't know what you are talking about there! As far as a smell...Well...you are walking into a DOG KENNEL. Is it really supposed to smell like roses? If you walk through the kennel (with staff ofcourse) it is clean and well maintained. I have been through there so yes, I have seen it! Coshoks is different from AARF. If you have a problem with a rescue showing there than leave it to the rescue. Contact them. As far as a sick or skinny dog, well, they get dogs in from all over and often they are sick or skinny and in need of some major help. Think on that. They get medical attention for any dog in there care work hard to change any behavioral issues. I think both Coshoks and AARF ROCK...
