Shannon's Doggy Daycare
I was very excited for a what looked like a great kennel to board my dog when we go out of town or for daycare- especially since it's 5 minutes from home. I dropped off my dog for 4 days. When I dropped her off, the lady who watches the dogs complained the whole time about certain dogs who were bad or how busy she is. I didn't think too much of it because it was a long weekend. When I came back to pick up my dog 4 days later, as I waited for the lady to come to the front so I could pick up my dog, I looked over in the area where all the dogs were playing and barking and I saw her hit and yell at one of the dogs. I was absolutely at a loss for words. After she comes up to me she complains about how bad that certain dog is. When I paid for my dog's stay, they were about to dry her off after giving her a bath. When they turned the dryer on, my dog was screaming for what felt like an eternity- I have NEVER heard her scream like that, EVER. The lady just said "Oh don't worry, I promise they are not hurting your dog" and walked away. When I took my dog, she was and has been skittish sincel. Who knows WHAT happened while she was there, but nothing good. I don't plan on taking her there again in the future. I will drive the extra 20 minutes to Alicias K9 Kuts and Kennels where they have been nothing but wonderful to my pup.
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.
