John and his staff are the best of any pet training, boarding or daycare center I know of. I've been taking my pets to John since '95 before he opened up the Resort on Upton Rd. All the staff there love animals and treat them as if they were thier own pets. My dogs are always exited when I drop them off for daycare and I never worry about how they will be cared for when I have to board them.

The review was written 2 years ago and I can state with out any hesitation that John would never stand for that to happen to any pet at his facility. Watch HBO special "one nation under dog" John is featured in it so you can trust he cares about animals.
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.
