We have boarded our dog Miko at multiple places across the country including California, Florida and Texas. Pilar's Pet Resort is, without doubt, the best place that Miko has stayed. When Miko arrives at Pilar's pet resort, he can't wait to get in the door. When we pick him up, he is always exited to see us, but he is not always happy to leave Pilar's. Pros: + Truly cage free. All dogs are free to roam the air-conditioned facility and go outside in a mid-sized clean play area. + Family run by people who genuinely love dogs. + Cozy for a dog with couches and cute elevated dog beds. + Smells clean, looks clean and is clean. + Frequent photo updates of dogs at play. + Pilar and staff are very caring and responsible. Pilar noticed that Miko was under the weather one day and drove him to our local vet (about 45 minutes away) for a check-up. She informed us promptly and did not charge us for the trip. + Pilar and staff understand dogs. They know when a dog needs a little quiet time and have special large rooms where they can temporarily keep dogs in need of a rest. + It is a joy to see the dogs follow Pilar about. She cares for them and they care for her. + Very good rates. + Fairly close to airport. + Many of the dogs are frequent boarders. These dogs provide stability, calm the pack and can become permanent friends with your dog. Cons: - We moved away from Florida and cannot find a place that is half as good as Pilar's. We miss you Pilar!

I hate to write this review given that at one point in time I was pleased with their services, however since that first time I have not been happy at all and I can guarantee that I will no longer go back there again. I co own a puppy who has a beautiful fluffy coat. Initially we got the mini cut where they kept his coat beautiful & fluffy and they trimmed his fur while maintaining the integrity of breed / coat. Since then it's gone down hill. We've taken him to get a bath& brush special, which we got our puppy back damp. Then we got a full cut where they shaved him completely down and scooped all the hair out of his face when we specially told them not to. The final straw was when we gave them verbal & text instructions with photos from what they did last and he came back with his fur shaved down on his face and completely uneven. I could understand if the fur was damaged or matted but he's brushed and groomed by us daily. We even got compliments from them about how they could tell we groom him. Not to mention my puppy who's normally very cheerful & friendly now cries when he comes inside. He drags his feet and shakes once they try to take him to the back. Of course I cannot conclude what has happened but its a major red flag in addition to how they do not follow directions. I'm unsure what the problem may be, or how we are lost in translation but unfortunately I'll have to find a groomer who can respect our wishes.
Taking my miniature schnauzer to Fuzzie Buddies is by far the best decision I have made for my dog. He has learned to socialize well with all types of dogs, big and small, he gets to play all day and has fun. When we pull into the parking lot he can hardly contain his excitement and as we walk through the door he greets the staff with his signature excited bark/howl (which is hilarious). The staff and owner are some of the most dedicated to pets that I know and they take very good care of each and everyone as if they were a child attending daycare. My furbaby has been going here for a little over a year now, pretty much everyday and the cost is well WORTH it! Buy a card and get some free days. Don't miss out on such an amazing day care. I'm moving to TX and if I could take one thing with me from FL to TX it would be Fuzzie Buddies Pet Resort.
We have taken our chocolate lab here a few times, including overnight boarding. HE LOVES IT. I love that they can play all day rather than being stuck in a kennel. He is so tired by the time we pick him up from playing with his friends. The best part is that they have cameras in all of the dog runs and an app for your phone so you can watch your dog play all day (ahhh, piece of mind!). I would recommend camp bow wow if your dog is alone all day, or if you're going away this place makes dogs happy! Also, the camp members are so friendly and genuinely care about the dogs.
A few weeks ago, my husband and I visited Tampa from Asheville for 12 days. I thought the place we booked was "pet friendly." Upon our arrival, I discovered I was mistaken. I scoured the internet and decided to visit Camp Bow Wow. I loved it! Bucky was interviewed for aggression. They checked his shot records and he stayed. I must say Kevin and the gang were all so skilled with how they handled him. My husband and I took him out twice and each time, he was happy to go back. Camp Bow Wow is the best kennel we've ever used!
disregard the post below as the review was insufficient in not describing why you wouldnt take your dog there. Also the user profile for the below review doesn't exist. on the other hand, i have taken my dogs to get groomed at petsville 5 times within the year and have had great results. Petsville actually grooms better than petsmart. I haven't tried their boarding service yet but the prices are extremely reasonable.
This was the best boarding for our dog Sandy. Nobody would take care because she would get very anxious and nervous and bark a lot. From the moment we took her here, the owner allowed Sandy to sniff him and let her walk around. In no time she was running around and playing. She spent 15 days here and they were great. We got updates and the price was affordable. I will leave Sandy here anyday. Thank you Carlos!
Camp Bow Wow is fabulous! I take our dog to camp at least once a week so he can run and play all day with his "friends" and he absolutely LOVES it! In fact, when we ask him if he wants to go to "doggie camp" he gets so excited and runs straight to the front door! We have been going for about a year now and I don't have any complaints!
Brought my three dogs in to be groomed, two large, one small. one of my large dogs is a senior with hip issues and they accommodated him and listened to me with my concerns, i really appreciated the knowledge and care they showed toward my pets. Price was also pretty decent for all three. It s really a hidden jewel!
My dog has been going to Camp Bow Wow for a little over a year. I started taking her to camp when she was a puppy. She loves it! It gives me peace of mind to know that she is so happy there. The staff is really friendly and they give my dog tons of love and attention. I highly recommend Camp Bow Wow for daycare!
