We had previosly taken our dog to a different kennel and he was very skittish after the stay. My husband was not keen on kenneling the dog again but after visiting the facility we decided to give it another try. We had the dog groomed on the day of pickup. Not only did he look great and smell wonderful but he was just fine after the stay. The staff was very friendly.
