So far, this place has been really great for taking my little girl to! I was looking for somewhere else besides the dog bark, since my pup is pretty shy and doesn't do well with a large amount of dogs together. This place has a lot less dogs that come to daycare, which is great! She doesn't get too overwhelmed. They have a live feed, and I can watch it from an app on my phone, which is awesome and I spend a ton of time doing that! I've seen the people go in there and give Xena some pets and hold her from time to time which makes me feel so good! They know us by now which is great, and the front desk girl is so sweet. Today I dropped her off for daycare and I was watching her before I was doing my last appointment at work, and I was kind of stressed out because I saw another dog keep pestering and chasing Xena, which I know happens...I'm an overprotective dog mom and Xena is kind of an odd dog so I always get nervous for her..but I was happy to see the girl in there stepping in to get the bigger dog away from her so she wasn't being chased for too long...but the poor girl had a lot going on so she wasn't able to constantly be by them! Well it was all I was thinking about during my last appointment..So I went after to pick her up, and didn't plan on saying anything about it, but the girl made a point to tell me that a puppy had been playing a bit rough with Xena so they put her away for the last hour so she could have some alone time and rest. I was pretty surprised that she would tell me that seeing as I hadn't brought it up, and so very well I could have not ever known. I was SO appreciative that first of all, they did that, and could see that Xena was a little distressed and needed some alone time, and secondly, that she even told me that when I came in.
We have left our dogs at All Breed a number of times over the past several years for up to a week at a time, without any real problem.When our younger dog, Henry, was lunging at other dogs and seemed to need training, we talked to Matt Weiner, the owner. He suggested we leave Henry with him for two months, the first he would work with Henry intensively ("I will be the only one interacting with him," he told us), the second month he would teach us the training.Once a week, we spoke with Matt by phone and he assured us that everything was going smoothly. After a month, we tried to set up our first meeting, but Matt pushed it back several times; it ended up taking place 39 days in. When we arrived, Matt claimed to be sick (though he seemed fine) and pushed the training back again; we asked to see Henry and Matt (reluctantly?) agreed.We were shocked to see that Henry was skin and bones. There had been a mix-up in our feeding instructions and Henry had only been getting half of what we requested for 5 1/2 weeks. When we confronted Matt, he said this was not a big deal; he wanted us to leave Henry with him for another month.We pulled Henry out that day. It seemed obvious to us that one of two things was the case. Either Matt did not recognize that Henry was starving or (and this seems far more likely) he hadn't been working with him at all and therefore had no idea.We view this as extreme incompetence, dangerous, in fact, to our dog. We paid 650 dollars to have Henry locked in a cage and slowly starved. (Also, Google "Matt Weiner;" there is a federal lawsuit against him.)
My friend recommended Suite Dog Daze to me after bringing her dog for socializing in the doggy daycare. I did some research, read the reviews and took a tour of the place before bringing my dog for daycare. Me first impression was how clean it appeared. Also the dogs were playing with toys which is something my dog didn't get to do at the other place I took him too. After leaving him for the first time, it was reassuring to be able to watch him on the webcam. Which I did often!! Much to my delight, each time I checked on him, he was having a great time! Super staff and a super place to take your dog!
Dogs will get sick due to lack of cleaning. Owner is NOT a certified trainer. Clients will be be mislead or untruths spoken my owner. Excuses and blame will be put on others. Frequent staff changes and little experience. Please ask for tour--check reviews.My dog is important and loved enough that SDD would never be the place I would take him again. Never. I hope this review makes it a better place for clients and dogs! That's the goal!
Leave your worries at home..Lisa will care for dog just as her own. She is doing a wonderful job with our pup and he may never want to leave training!! Great spot, lots of room and very safe for your pet And peace of mind when ypur dog behaves. :)
Our cats love this place and so do we. The owner, Beth, is absolutely wonderful and we can rest assured that our cats are safe and happy. It's clean, comfortable, secure, and actually downright cute. Beth is patient and knows how to handle all sorts of kitty personalities.
