Pampered Pooch
The first couple times we took our dog there it was fine. Then they got a standard poodle who bites. While picking up our dog after vacation, we saw their poodle snap twice at our dog and our dog yelped. Our dog came home with bite scabs on his back. They definitely have way too many dogs over the holidays. It seems like it s about the money and not caring about taking care of dogs. We called to tell them about his bites and were told oh I thought I saw something on his neck when he got dropped off . ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? No apology or excuse. My dog also had a green gooey discharge in both eyes for over a week after being there and we made a vet appointment but then it got better. Will NOT be going back there again. Will find a place that takes a reasonable amount of dogs.

My family and I were vacationing in the area (Sanibel Island) and wanted to board our dog somewhere close by and we chose Academy Kennels based on their positive reviews. Our bulldog loved it! She had an indoor / outdoor run, so she could go outside whenever she needed to, they administered her daily medications, took great care of her, and did an awesome job on her bath before we picked her up. We were very pleased with the quality of care they provided for our baby and will definitely use them again if we travel back to Sanibel in the future. Really great staff.

Hands down, this is the best kennel in town! 2 different dogs of mine over a span of 10+ years have stayed here and I will come back again and again. They treat the dogs with love and care and respect any "rules" you have as their owners. The staff is always friendly, a vet is close by for emergencies and place is constantly being cleaned. #iloveacademykennels

I've been bringing my pets to Academy Kennels for just about 5 years now. I'm very satisfied with the facilities they provide for my dog. The place is indoor-outdoor so there is plenty of room for her to run around and play. Best of all they are very accommodating there.

Academy Kennels is great! My wife and I have used them for a few years now, and the staff is just great. Our dogs get very excited when we drop them off, which makes us happy. We know our dogs are in good hands when we can't be there with them.

Academy Kennels loves dogs, and they have extensive knowledge of dogs and their needs. My dog needed medication and they gave it to him in a timely manner. I know my dog is well taken care of. He comes home happy and wagging his tail.

When searching for a new vet one of my main concerns was a clean facility I would be bringing my two dogs to. When I found Academy Kennels I knew it was right and I had a professional team of people.

My dog and I both love Academy Kennels! I don't go behind the scenes but I can tell my dog is very happy when he's there, and he never seems ready to leave when I pick him up.

What I like most about Academy Kennels is the people that work there. It is clear they make every efforts to answer questions and explain the entire pet training process.

We first heard about Academy Kennels from our neighbors who use them. The staff there is friendly and knowledgeable and they love your pets almost as much as you do.
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.
