I have been boarding my dog a this facility for a few years no whenever I am out of town. He is quite happy go in and spend a few days with the other dogs. Whenever I come to pick him up, he looks like he's played a lot and when we get back home he takes a long nap.
Once we had a family emergency and I had to leave the country as soon as possible and the owners were very understanding. I was able to drop off my dog without a hassle and could deal with the payment after I had gotten back.
My only concerns are that when I get my dog back, he's usually a little scratched up and has lost his voice. This probably comes with playing with other dogs for so long. You'll also have to give your dog a bath as soon as they come back home. I have a white dog, and when I get him back, there is a tinge to his coat and he smells bad.
By best advice: AVOID
- They don’t provide report cards or any recap of how your dog did.
- The place is dirty and unclean. It smells like urine and feces. Your dog WILL come home and need a bath, promptly.
- I never actually saw my dog in the play pens. Every time we picked him up, he was in the back crated area. I have a hunch that they don’t give the dogs as much “free time” as they let on.
- The staff are wildly unfit to care for dogs. They lack the experience and knowledge to deal with any situation.
Please PLEASE take your pup somewhere safer, cleaner, and better managed!!
I am so very sorry I put my dog through this experience. She has not been the same since she returned from a 5-day stay. We have boarded our dog at other facilities while we are on vacation and she has always come back exactly as she left - a very happy and playful puppy. On her return from this place, she is timid, shy, sad, and absolutely not the same dog. In addition, she lost a couple pounds at this facility. The moment we got home, she ate and drank water as if she were starved and dehydrated.
As for the service, the owners are loud, obnoxious, and very unprofessional people. While standing at the desk waiting to pay, the husband owner was yelling at his wife on the phone and hung up on her - then explained to me that it was his wife. Then when he went in the back to retrieve our dog, he was yelling very loud at someone – this was not a good sign as I can only imagine what he and his horrible staff did to our dog.
Please, if you love your pet, don't bring them to this place – there are many qualified and caring kennel owners that will keep your pet happy and safe.
My dog absolutely loves coming here and I am very comfortable with leaving him here overnight. When I had an emergency in which I had to leave the country for two weeks, the Wet Noses staff were very accommodating and helpful. He loves playing with the other dogs and when he comes back you know he's gotten lots of exercise. Totally would recommend Wet Noses to any of you dog owners :)
