Best doggy day care in Madison. My dog has been going there for three years and its been great for him. The dogs get to be outside all day when the weather is nice. Dustin is fantastic with dogs and all the staff love dogs. Highly recommend.
The only place I will take my dog! The only downside I have to say about them is when I had my pit bull (now deceased) once when both dogs were being boarded, the pit bull was recorded as having bloody diarrhea. I told them to take both dogs to the emergency clinic and I would pick them up there (I worked there at the time). I nor any of the emergency staff ever saw any diarrhea. This is what I didn't like: The person that called told me that "it was probably THAT time" because of the bloody stool (indicating time for my pit bull to be euthanized) if I hadn't worked at an emergency animal clinic and had the background I have, I would have FREAKED OUT! This is NOT something you want to tell someone that is 200 miles away on vacation, and bloody diarrhea does NOT mean they are almost dead, when they are acting normal. I also, had to go BACK to them to pay my bill, they didn't remember that I hadn't paid yet (darn conscience)! And even after he died of cancer, I told them of this and to take him off of my account, they continue to ask if he is going to be boarded (2 years later) when I take my current dog in, which makes me very sad. Even though they had these couple flub ups, I know many people that used to work at Hickory Hills and they said that even behind the scenes the people are very caring, loving and good towards the animals. I lucked out finding this place, my dog loves it, it's affordable, and I wouldn't board him any other place!
