This place wasn't my best experience but by far my worst. I took my two yorkshire terriers on Saturday to be bathed and trimmed. My end result was one dog almost bald and the other with 4 inches of her hair cut off from her coat and her face kept long. Right now both of my babies are looking AWFUL I shedded tears when picking them up. Then I called to speak with groomer to express my issue with her not doing what I had asked of her and the end result was an apology, NO REFUND and I can bring them for a free bath. Why would I want to take my dogs back to this place. CRAZY! I am still upset by this service and I do pray their hair grows back quickly. Then the place isn't the cleaniest and the people in the front weren't friendly. Several of us stood at the front desk waiting to be serviced while they were in the back with the veternarian. SO unprofessional. They could have at least acknowledge and let us know they will be with us shortly. Then they had three yorkies in a cage out in the open when you first walk in the lobby area with poop on the floor outside of their cage. DISGUSTING!!!!!!...........I definitely do not recommend this place to anyone for getting their dogs bathed and groomed. If you can please take your dog or dogs somewhere else. CHEAP is not always better. I am not sure how they have these 5 ratings because this was by far a 5 experience for me. Never again.

Columbia Kennels is Awesome! I have been taking my two dogs there for over 6 months now and have referred several other dog owners. We all love their service. I just read a comment about it being very, very loud and that is just not the case. Its family owned and they take care of your dogs like they are family too. They can even tell me what my dogs did that day and who they played with. They are very honest and will always tell me everything that my dog has done while I have been gone. I would highly recommend them and am thankful to have such a wonderful place so close to my work!

I have been taking my 8 month old Puppy to Columbia Kennels since I got him and have really enjoyed their service. He has a blast and I can call them at any time to check up on my dog. He comes home super tired and happy. I also love the convenience of the location. I would definitely recommend them to my friends! They are a very clean facility.

Columbia kennels is an excellent dog school. I found the training center when we had adopted a young border-collie mix from a shelter that was too wild for us to handle. I was first at a loss for how to make my dog behave. When I went to Columbia Kennels they helped us learn how to bond with our dog, establish trust - and walked us through each step learning how to live with each other, including with our cat! It was an amazing transformation (for all of us). Pretty miraculous considering where we started. I highly recommend this down to earth and caring school and its staff.

On October 13, 2010, I became the owner of a little lab puppy. I, however, had no idea how to deal with the little dogsﾒ accidents around the house. I had never had a dog before and needed to have the dog trained fast. I found an easy to work with trainer at Columbia Kennels. They helped me solve my dogsﾒ accident problems, and also have helped me with other problems that have come up during his life. I am very thankful I found them.

Columbia Kennels is the BEST! In September 2009, I took my dog, who was 12 months old, to Columbia kennels for training. The trainers were VERY thorough with getting rid of my dogs bad behavior. I had never trained a dog before and was so relieved to have someone help me understand how to be a better dog owner and how to help my dog to have manners. They taught me so many things about a dog's behavior that I would have never picked up on without their help. As a result of the expert training, my dog is well behaved, he listens to me, I am a better dog parent, and I have a fantastic relationship with my dog! I found their fees to be reasonable and worth every penny! They are professional, easy to work with and have procedures in place that help solidify the training given. I am so happy that I chose Columbia Kennels and I can't recommend them enough!

We love Columbia kennels. I have been taking my Yorkshire terrier there for about 3 years now. The friendly staff does a wonderful job. Our dog is extremely shy, but when we brought him to Columbia kennels, they had no problem taking care of him. This gave us peace of mind, during the days that both of us work, and we have to leave the little guy at Columbia kennels. I highly recommend Columbia kennels to anyone that needs grooming, training, or daycare for their dog.

I was looking for the best dog groomer in Town. The place that I found was Columbia kennels. I found everyone at Columbia Kennels very helpful, plus it was so affordable, and I was able to find an excellent dog trainer there. They were really helpful when we explained that our dogs had some behavioral issues around the house. They worked with us to solve those problems. Now we go there every time for both grooming, and additional training.

I am the owner of a Siberian husky. During the winter months my dog can get quite dirty in our back yard. As such we have to take him in for regular grooming. We found a very nice grooming establishment called Columbia kennels. The facility is very clean every time we come in, and we always walk out the door feeling satisfied that the job was done right. Our dog ﾑLuckyﾒ is always clean and happy when he leaves. They know what it takes to get rid of the ground in dirt in our dogﾒs fur. Thank you Columbia kennels.

I leave my dog at Columbia Kennels all the time. I travel a lot, and when I need a place to keep her while I am away, I trust them. They treat my dogs with care, and I have never had trouble with my dog getting sick there. If you ever need your dog to go to a clean daycare, Columbia Kennels is a good place to go.
