I thought this place was great! Staff very friendly and seemed genuinely concerned for my dogs. All three were boarded there the week of 8/19. I picked them up on Friday and by Monday my oldest and smallest dog started showing symptoms of kennel cough. I don't believe she was the mainstream dog population like the other two were. By early this week one of my other dogs came down with it and now my last dog is showing symptoms. They all were all vaccinated appropriately, but apparently the vaccine for bordetello is like humans receiving the flu vaccine. It doesn't. Prevent us from catching, but if we do it will hopefully be a mild case. $150 in meds so far not counting the latest dog exhibiting symptoms. Is this a cleaning issue at the kennel? I don't know.

Tips & Advices
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.
Vaccination requirements vary between facilities, but a good rule of thumb is to give dogs the rabies, Bordetella (kennel cough), and DAPP (canine distemper, canine adenovirus type 1, canine parvovirus, and parainfluenza) or DA2PP (distemper, adenovirus type 2, parvovirus, and parainfluenza) vaccines. Cats should get the FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia) and rabies vaccines
Kennels and pet boarding facilities generally incorporate exercise or play time into the cost of a night's stay. Dogs often get one or two walks per day as well as access to a solitary or group play area. Cats also get a large room to play in filled with toys, scratching posts, and climbing towers.
Basic accommodations include a sleeping area and scheduled food and water. The average kennel or pet boarding facility also offers ample play areas and toys to keep pets entertained. Some also provide simple grooming services like baths and nail trimmings.
