I cannot add much to what all of the reviews below have already mentioned except that I checked out several kennels as this was the first time we had to leave our 10 year old beagle in a kennel for a few days. This was the nicest place of all and the most reasonably priced - even with the extra charges for additional activities. Eric and Kathy are definitely dog lovers and know what is important to insure the safety and health of all of the animals in their care - including vaccinations and tests. You know that when you leave your animal there, they will come home as healthy as they were when they came. What I found a little surprising is how they took the animal's needs into consideration, like putting the cat cages up high by a window and making sure the dog runs had shade or some place the animal could get out of the hot sun even if they had to build it. I would just add that Eric and Kathy are really nice people and run this business with their love of animals very apparent. I was a little nervous about leaving our dog with someone else but I am not now and would definitely rest easy if/when we need to leave him again. I have always been an animal lover and I know them when I meet them.

The Golden Girls Kennel is the best around! They come as close to a vacation pet resort as the ones down south! Kath (the owner) has one of the funniest brochures I've ever seen...each page is a detailed description of an activity that can be purchased for an extra charge. Our dogs get the 'vacation package' which includes romps in a pond, walks in the forest and daily exercises in what used to be a horse paddock. It is now fenced in and my dogs love it! I love the fact that the dogs are taken out of their kennel 3-4 times per day and walked around the building to pee/poop. This is done as part of regular kenneling; without all the extras added on. I know that my dog get well cared for. I have nothing but praise for Golden Girls Kennel.

We absolutely LOVE this place !! We joke that our yellow lab is going to his resort, while we go away. He is well cared for, safe and exercised several times per day. I personally am impressed that they do not allow "aggressive" breeds here. Not all dogs in those considered aggressive are, but I would rather be safe than sorry. We had taken our dog to another kennel before finding Kathy & Eric - our dog has never been the same - he was terrorized by other more aggressive dogs. While our dog is very large, he is a big baby and does not have an aggressive bone in his body. Whenever we ask our dog if he wants to go see Kathy & Eric, his tail starts going crazy, and he gets totally excited - gives us peace of mind to enjoy our time away :)

I have never seen or heard of a more amazing kennel. Our dog, who is usually so unhappy away from home, absolutely loves it here and mopes when we make him leave. This is more of a puppy vacation place than a kennel. And the owners are the most amazing people. We have also kenneled our cat for an extended vacation and were so happy with that experience too. We just found out we're getting transferred out of the area and I think the thing I'm most sad about is our dog losing his home away from home. Cannot recommend this place enough!

I had never left my dog before and I couldn't have been happier. The Golden Girls kennel is one of the nicest facilities I have ever seen for dogs. Eric and Kathy are wonderful! The kennel is immaculate and there are so many activities that your dog can do while you are away for a very reasonable rate. I will never leave Katie anywhere else. I was very relaxed leaving her and even felt better when I got home and saw how well she had been taken care of. I would recommend this kennel wholeheartedly...

We love this place. It's like a vacation getaway for your dog. I'ts going to cost a bit extra for the different activies she offers but my pet is worth every extra penny and it doesn't work out to that much more anyways. This is always my first choice to Kennel Oscar our black Lab.

Took good care of my dog and been back a couple times. Clean and friendly. The dog seems happy when we go there and good natured when he comes home. Good to have a place for him when we travel.
Tips & Advices
Pets that do not get along with other animals may incur an additional fee. Some facilities have special solitary sleeping and play animals for these types of pets.
A checklist for what to bring to a pet kennel includes:
  • Vaccination records
  • A favorite toy or blanket
  • Food and feeding instructions (if the pet has dietary restrictions or is a picky eater)
  • Medication (if necessary, in its original bottle and with written instructions)
Some pet kennels have veterinarians as part of their daily staff, while others only have vets part time or on call.
Most kennels can provide basic care such as administering medications, but owners of pets with serious medical issues should choose a facility with a veterinarian on call.
Bordetella, commonly known as kennel cough, is highly contagious, and most dogs catch it at least once in their lifetimes. As such, all dogs should be vaccinated at least 7 days before boarding.
