I have an unruly yet adorable Beagle named Snoopy that is the light of my life. He is family, my child so to speak - a sentiment that can be appreciated only by fellow dog lovers. Snoopy is a rescue who had a very hard life before we found each other. He was shuffled from place to place and left outside, tied to a tree for weeks at a time.Anyone who owns or has owned a Beagle knows that they require the attention of their owner regularly. If they don't get it, they howl with a tone that sounds as if they are the saddest most neglected dog in the world.Snoopy was with me 24/7. There were two reasons for this: the first is that I loved him and wanted him with me. The second is that when I left him alone for any length of time, I would undoubtedly return to a noise complaint affixed to my front door or worse, the police in my driveway investigating a disturbance.In any case, as much as I would like to take him everywhere I go, there are places and times when his presence is not permitted nor welcomed. Hey, if I had my way, dogs would be allowed in restaurants, but that's me. I love, love, love dogs! They make the world a better place as far as I am concerned.So, when I found myself needing a caretaker for Snoopy during the day or over the weekend, I searched for a place that I knew would love and care for him in a manner commensurate with dog lovers. I worry about my baby when he is not with me, so to feel that he is as happy, safe and loved with his caretaker as he is with me, is really important to me.I tried out The Dog Resort because they had excellent reviews and offered a free trial day. I am a busy person so I found their on-line booking system very easy, efficient and conducive to my busy schedule. I filled out the application and reservation forms on-line and received a confirmation within 10 minutes.I left a message the night prior to Snoopy's daycare trial day because I wanted to know what I needed to bring - having never brought Snoopy to daycare before - I had allot of questions. I was amazed to find my call returned within 5 minutes of leaving a message. It was 11 at night!Every dog parent thinks their dog is perfect just the way they are. Well, Snoopy is perfect indeed. However, he is also loud, needy and high maintenance. He isn't all that social either. He also has a tendency to mark a place that has other dogs nearby. It is really embarrassing to say the least.On his first visit to The Dog Resort, he trotted in and proceeded to lift his leg on their wall. To my surprise, they made me feel comfortable about it and quickly cleaned and disinfected the area. There was a love and passion for dogs in the way they operated. I noticed that Snoopy connected with the staff right away and left my side - or should I say - forgot about me- which is unusual.Anyway, The Dog Resort won Snoopy over from day one and he looks forward to spending time there. He has become more independent and social with other dogs and his manners have improved considerably.The staff put dogs first. They focus on giving my dog joy and a great experience rather than on getting as much money from me as they can. Their prices are modest and fair and the value and quality of service and care they give Snoopy makes them the best doggie daycare in the world as far as I am concerned.If you are looking for the best care and experience for your dog for a reasonable price then The Dog Resort is the place to be.

I have a dog that I adopted from the humane society. She has some major quirks. She has major separation anxiety and freaks out to the extent of hurting herself when placed in a crate. I took her to a boarding kennel prior to taking her to the resort and when I picked her up she had scratches all over her face. She was pretty banged up. The kennel staff told me she hurt herself trying to get out of her kennel. She was miserable and couldn't get out of the place fast enough. I had to go on a business trip and none of the family and friends who watched her while I was away, could take her. So, based on the word of a close dog loving friend of mine I took her to The Dog Resort. I don't know what they did or didn't do. All I can say is that when I picked her up she was grinning from ear to ear. She ran around the place as if she owned it and gave each of the staff working that day a wet kiss before we left. I noticed that while speaking to the staff about how she did during her boarding stay, she went nowhere near the front door and in fact ran up to the door separating the reception area from the rest of the facility and scratched on it as if wanting to get back in. That was what did it for me. I knew she had not only a good but rather great experience there and will take her there every time I go on a business s trip. No offense to my family and friends but I have never seen her so happy in anyone else's care. I highly recommend The Dog Resort.
I was new to washington a year ago. Not sure where I should take my dog to when I am at work. I took him to one place close to my work.He didn't seem to enjoy there, plus they charge feeding fee ( except bringing own food). My dog gets angry when I leave him there. I searched for different places, I brought my dog to dog resort after we tried a few places. He loves here! He doesn't even look me back when I drop him off. He just runs and can't wait to see everyone there. They are also very considerate for dogs there, and they don't charge to feed dogs if we provide own food. I am very very pleased with the service at dog resort!
Benny and Jasmine have been attending daycare at The Dog Resort since they were puppies. They learned allot there and I save a great deal in training costs. Training is part of the daycare experience. Who could ask for anything more. They are in it for the love of dogs not for the money. It shows in everything they do.
I have been living in the area for a while with my seven year old Cockapoo, Cocoa. As my days got longer at work, dog daycare was my only choice, which is something I wasn't too comfortable doing since she is the love of my life. The Dog Resort won over Cocoa's heart and is even like a puppy again.
It's not about what I think... it's what my dog thinks... and he absolutely loves this place. He gets so excited when we turn into the parking lot and it is all he can do to get inside. All the desk people know him and sometimes I think they like them more than me!
I absolutely love The Dog Resort! I've tried many places around Seattle and The Dog Resort is the only place that my dog seems satisfied and happy with. There is plenty of space and land for the dogs and the staff is so great and caring.
Roxy had surgery and needed care. I couldn't take the time off work and took her to The Dog Resort during the day. They gave her her meds, changed her dressings and took great care of her.
