PLEASE READ!I do not normal take the time to write reviews but I just couldn't let this review go. This maybe long but it's important to read! I had been taking my mini Schnauzer, Precious, for grooming to Pet Smart in Mantua, NJ. First off let me make it clear that Precious is my 24/7 companion, I am disabled and this dog is "EVERYTHING!" to me! I had been taking her to Pet Smart since she was 6 mos old and now she is 6 yrs old. As time when on she started getting very upset about getting groomed, then she got to the point where she refused to go into the store. I had to carry her to grooming salon, she would shake so BAD, she would like foam at the mouth and CRY so much! I had to stop taking her and make my husband take her! Then I started looking for somewhere else to go and divine intervention lead me to Halo House! They have 2 locations now, Franklinville is main location and Deptford is their new one. They invited me to come check everything out before I made any decision. So I set up the visit and also an appointment too. Once I was there for 5 mins I knew I had found a new grooming salon! These people are the nicest, friendliest, caring, kind, hard working, patient and animal loving people I have ever met! NO cages in the back room, just little white picket fenced areas with beds and toys! Well needless to say I let them groom my Precious and she looked GREAT! More IMPORTANTLY she was HAPPY! NO crying, NO freaking out, NOTHING! In fact she wasn't even in a hurry to leave! On your 1st visit you get 50% off, that was nice! But none of this was about the money it was about Precious and her comfort! Just yesterday I took her for her 2nd grooming appt and I figured this will be a true indicator if she really was happier. Well we got there and she went in like a champ, she was the only dog there so I let her of her lease and she wondered around, tail wagging and NO shaking! I turned around to leave and she was fine, she REALLY does like this place! And SO DO I! When I went to pick her up, she was sleeping on the little bed, I mentioned that I was afraid to go in Lowes because I might miss the call to pick her up & this wonderful women Gail offered to let Precious stay while I ran to Lowes. I didn't take her up on her offer but that is what kind of people these people are! And for Xmas they gave me a clear ornament with Precious's hair in it! I actually teared up! Please if you LOVE your pet try Halo House for grooming or boarding! It's the ONLY place I would board my Precious! It should be the ONLY place you TRUST TOO!

We have 3 dogs, a Boxer, a German Shepherd and a Brussels Griffon. We live in So. Phila, but travel to Halo House because we are more than happy with them. The runs are large and I LOVE that they are indoor/outdoor runs, and all three can stay in a large suite and remain together. They come home clean and happy. When they see me packing their food for a stay, they are so excited and can't wait to get there!!! Would highly recommend Halo House and have done so.

I would not recommend taking your dog here. I brought my 9 month old German shepherd here and they treated him like a viscous dog. They didn't follow any instructions I had left for him. They told me my dog was mean and aggressive during group play but has gone to other day cares and had no issues. The girl that took him back when I dropped him off acted like she was terrified of him and I feel like she wanted an escape from dealing with him.

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.
