This was my first time using a kennel and I'm giving it a big and loud 5 stars!! First as soon as I pulled up a young man ;) came out greeted us and helped me to unload the dogs and my stuff, which was a lot! We walked in and my first thought was the out door space was very clean and picked up. And then you walk in and immediately I noticed... It smelled good!!! Not like cover up but the whole kennel smelled good and clean, no bathroom odor. And with the open door policy we where welcomed back to where the dogs would be staying and they helped me get them set up. They answered all my questions and let the dogs out to play before putting them in the kennels. I came three mornings out of the four and every time I came they were out playing with dogs and they were cleaning every kennel while the dogs where out. Now there was a lot of barking, Yes but I stopped and chatted with the owner several times. I noticed after about 5-15 minutes all the dogs stopped and started to relax and settle down. This was a huge relief for me bc I thought all the barking and noise would stress out my pups but to know that they all calmed down was big relief. I was welcomed to come take the pups for a field trip anytime I wanted and they also gave me some good local suggestions.My dogs had a special diet that they where happy to oblige with no extra charge. And allergies they where watchful for. I enjoyed our stay so much I would hang out and chat with the awesome staff. They were all very knowledgeable about the dogs staying there and their job and to my surprise about breeds. My Boston Terrier Cooper has a hard time regulating his temp. At one point we had been outside and when we came back in it became clear Cooper was too hot and everyone around stopped and helped me to give him a cool bath and treat it and make sure he was okay after I left. I also got to see some awesome photos of the pups while I was away and could have checked in whenever I wanted. The prices were very reasonable and I was very pleased. I only wish they had a kennel set up in my home town chapel hill bc not only would my pups visit often but I'd love to work for them. For our first time and just in general Ocean Sands K9 resort has earned their #1 spot as best beach kennel. Thanks again so much and I can't wait till next time. :)

The overhaul is fabulous! Love the new owners and they have an awesome new groomer, Corren :D She is is really friendly and very knowledgeable. My dogs loved her and they looked so good. I hear she also does cat shaves and trims so I'm thinking of taking my kitty there and I will definitely write up a review for that too. Over all I had a great experience and I would highly recommend this place.
