Augusta Road Pet Hotel
My wife and I first met Gary about 7 years ago when we moved to Greenville. Gary was extremely personable and took EXCELLENT care of our dogs (Charleston 80lb Boxer and Noel 50lb Chow Sheppard mix). We felt very confident in our dogs' well-being when we left them with Gary. Over the years, Gary became like a family member of ours. The kennel was our dogs' second home and they were never apprehensive about going to stay at the kennel. Gary would give them a stocking full of treats and presents at Christmas time. He was always available on very short notice to help us out in jams (more than once)!!! Gary would call to ensure that he was going to have enough room for our dogs when a busy holiday was approaching. When the economy took a turn for the worse, we were unable to properly care for the dogs for a while and Gary took them in while we got back on our feet. His care and love for our dogs was extremely apparent. When we had to put Noel down, Gary offered advice on where to go and preparations to make. He also put Noel's name on the "In Loving Memory" plaque outside the kennel office, which meant a lot during that awful time.Being like a member of the family over the years, our kids came to call him Uncle Gary and he was always willing to lend a helpful hand. When moving out, Gary was instrumental in helping us to find a realtor to rent our house, kennel our dog during the moving out process, and giving rides to the hotel/airport. His kindness and goodness toward helping his clients as well their animals is obvious from the start. We would HIGHLY recommend Gary and the Augusta Road Pet Hotel to anyone looking for pet services.Mike and Nicole Harris

Augusta Road Pet Hotel
Augusta Rd Pet Hotel is a great place to take your dogs either full time for a doggy day care or for short term boarding. Gary kept our great dane Maxwell from the time we brought Maxwell home at 10 weeks old. Maxwell went every day when I worked and always enjoyed going. Gary helped with issues such as potty training and behavioral problems we encountered with Maxwell growing up. He kept him until we moved away. When we would come back for visits Gary would keep him. Gary is very nice. The place is clean. He has extensive knowledge of the animals he keeps and I always felt comfortable leaving Maxwell with him. Would highly recommend him over using any other kennel services that leave your dogs locked up all day with no interaction.

This place is awesome and is a great value. Gary took great care of my lab/german shepherd mix, and when I came to pick the dog up, it looked super happy and well taken care of. Will definitely be back and will tell friends about it. They let your dog be a dog here and do an incredible job. Gary is a really cool guy too.

Tips & Advices
Some pet groomers have viewing areas where owners can sit and watch their pets being treated. Most prevent owners from being in the same room as the pet, however, as the owner's presence might cause the pet to become too excited.
Pets that cannot interact with strangers do not make good professional grooming candidates. Sometimes medication can help, but some groomers don't take animals that have been sedated. If a pet becomes too unruly, a groomer may end the session entirely.
It's best to fully vaccinate pets before bringing them to their first grooming appointment. Dogs should receive the DA2PPC vaccine, which stands for canine distemper, canine andenovirus type 2, canine parvovirus, and parainfluenza. It's also a good idea to vaccinate dogs against Bordedatella (aka “kennel cough”). In fact, New York City requires dogs receive both DAPP and Bordetella shots. Cats, meanwhile, should get the FVRCP vaccine: feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus infection, and panleukopenia. In addition, all pets should be up to date on their rabies shots. Owners should wait at least 24 hours after getting their pet vaccinated before bringing it to the groomers.
Technically, there is no such thing as a pet that is too old for a professional groomer. In fact, older pets with joint or mobility issues often can't groom themselves and need someone else to clean them. However, pets that are blind, deaf, or have serious medical issues might not do well at a groomer, especially if the person is inexperienced. Owners should feel free to ask potential groomers about their understanding of elderly pet issues. Often, older pets will exhibit puppy-like behavior and squirm or yelp during grooming. Alternatively, they might not be able to stand for long periods of time. As such, grooming an older pet usually takes more time than grooming a young one.
Puppies and kittens should be at least 10 weeks old before their first professional grooming session. They should be used to being gently handled by strangers and comfortable being separated from their owners for a few hours at a time.
