I would trust Rob Cary with my two dogs on absolutely any occasion. For over two years, I've been taking my dogs to this facility for their grooming appointments, and I have also used Rob Cary's boarding services. After grooming, my dogs come back clean and smelling wonderful. When we board them, they are obviously well taken care of and return to us as happy as ever. In fact, one of my babies even ran back to the tech that brought her out to me because she enjoyed her time so much.
Every staff member I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with has been courteous, kind, and above all respects and loves my dogs as their own. I would not hesitate entrusting the two furry loves of my life to Rob Cary for any of their grooming or boarding needs. I have had nothing but good experiences! If I did, I am confident the team at Rob Cary would do everything they could to make the situation right.
Thank you for taking such good care of my furbabies!

What a great experience we had working with Rob Cary's dog trainers on obedience and basic training for our lab. Fun time, well run class, organized and we were delighted in how much Rob Cary's staff cared about our lab and the other dogs. The staff was encouraging to us and our dog. We took the class wanting to correct some habits our lab had learned rom us, thinking we knew what to do. Not only did our lab excel with the right kind of training and pass with flying colors, we learned so much ourselves. Thank you to the Rob Cary staff from E Jason.

We have used Rob Cary Pet Resort to board, train and groom our pets for many years. Recently, we took our two German Shepherd mixes in for grooming. While grooming the male, the groomer noted a mass in the abdominal area. When we picked up our dogs we were advised of this and immediately took him to our vet. Our vet found two more masses. After a cytology study we were advised the cells in the largest mass were abnormal. Our dog had surgery to remove all three tumors and is doing very well. Thanks to the groomer, Christin, and the staff at Rob Cary Pet Resort! Job well done! We recommend these folks to those who want their animals to get the best!

I am visiting San Antonio on business, and had to fly out to DC on very short notice. I also could not take my service dog with me, so was desperate to find a safe and loving place for her for two days especially as I was flying in and out in what I hoped would be a consistent break in the weather but could not be sure so was really stressing.
I have also been a dog breeder, trainer, and show person for over 40 years, so I really do know my dog facilities, what they should be like, and how to spot a good one.
Rob Cary qualifies as GREAT. The atmosphere is welcoming, and the facility airy and clean. The staff could not have been more helpful nor friendlier, and the accommodations for my girl were high-end and above all SAFE. Everyone I met was wonderful. They even assured me that if I was storm-stayed a day or more that I need not worry, they would keep my girl safe with them until I got back, a real worry for me at the time. She had some meds to be given which was no problem, and she settled in well.
Her suite had a real bed - a big deal as she sleeps on mine, not in a kennel - a sofa, an easy chair, and a tv going to keep her company and muffle ambient noise which might upset her, which is what I do at home too.
She was also away from other dogs, great to keep her stress levels down, and to keep her from being hurt or from picking up any coughs or other illnesses. She had inside and outside access, and lots of room to play and stretch out. Service dogs are different from regular dogs, and Rob Cary was very sensitive to her (and my!) special needs and treated her like family.
Because of the quality of the facility and staff, I did not even feel guilty about leaving her, and was able to take care of business on my trip without being stressed about my girl. They fed her the food I brought, gave her her special treats, petted and played with her, even tucked her in at night and made sure she was fine at all times.
I even had the option of calling and speaking to her on the speaker phone in her suite, but elected not to as I knew that that would make her look for me and I didn't want her to think I was there when I was not! I have had other dogs that would have been great for though.
On picking her up, she was in amazingly good spirits, still liked the staff lol, and the bill was exactly what I had expected, no surprises.
I cannot recommend this place more highly, and strongly urge anyone with a special friend who needs a home away from home for a bit to try here FIRST. I just wished I lived in San Antonio so I could bring her in regularly for grooming, and for agility classes which she would just love. The dogs I saw in a training class while I was there all seemed very well behaved and really happy to be there.
Although they knew I would not be back nor become a long-term client, they took great care of us. We have only been back in the hotel for a little bit today, and she is calm and happy, and her tummy is NOT upset, yay!
So again, a big thank-you to the staff at Rob Cary for helping out a traveler with an emergency, and for your wonderful care of my most important friend and aide. Namaste!

I take my two dog here every two weeks for grooming. When we walk in they are excited and when met with the employees, just dance and beg to be picked up. When we HAVE to board, this is the place they go. I know what my dogs need and relay this information to the employees. They listen. I know to take my own dog food because they have sensitive digestive systems and need what they are used to. I have known the owner Carol, the owner, twenty-five years and know that she and her employees are sensitive to the well-being of your pet. They love animals and do not want them to be unhappy! I know they cannot please everyone all the time but if you talk to them they will respond. Would not take my two Griffs anywhere else!

I have been a customer and avid fan of Rob Cary Pet Resort for almost 6 years. My dogs have had the privilege of staying in a luxury suite. At the end of their stay, they were happy to see me, but not at all stressed.....my mind was immediately put at ease. My grooming experiences have also been a success. The groomers seem to have that gentle touch and professional talent, a great combination that pleased both my dog and me. I have also been a student in the Ring Manners classes offered for show dogs. I learned some handling techniques that have helped me and my cute, but stubborn little puppy learn to love the show ring. I was very impressed with the variety of classes offered, from FREE potty training to grooming, agility and obedience. With such diverse education opportunities, it seems there is something offered for everyone. I love to shop for my dogs. Rob Cary offers a variety of healthy, all natural food and treats, as well as a great selection of toys and accessories that any pampered pet needs; again something for every pet to enjoy. The associates are both helpful and knowledgeable. I have a dog that had lost much of his coat. Tammi recommended a particular food that he loved. I'm proud to say my little guy now has hair! All I can say is thank you Rob Cary for loving, and caring for my dogs, and for giving me the opportunity to educate myself and my pets. Most of my professional career has been spent dealing with the public. All too often, we only hear the negativity and criticism. I put my thoughts into words, because I believe that hard work, professionalism and knowing how to care for pets properly, should be rewarded.

Thanks Gary for a wonderful experience with puppy training class with the newest member of our family, Maggie.
She is a well-behaved and well-balanced dog, responding to her leash as well as our commands. I have no doubt the training will ultimately keep her out of trouble.
