Dog Gone Smart
We love Dog Gone Smart! Our dog has done puppy playtime, boarding, swimming, and day care. She always comes home completely wiped out from playing all day. The staff does a great job separating dogs by groups based on temperament and are always very friendly and helpful. The facilities are always clean and well-maintained. I don't know what the person complaining about the pool was talking about; every time we've gone it's always been immaculate!I can't speak for classes or training, but we can't say enough good things about DGS. Word to the wise: call in advance for daycare/boarding over a busy holiday weekend or school break. They are very strict about keeping the number of dogs to a minimum and tend to get booked up!

Stroll With Me Doggie
Our dog Colby has been going to see Laura and Darius for over a year and loves the facility and the company of the other dogs. This is a terrific place for dogs to go as they have their freedom in a safe comfortable environment. Every day Colby comes back happy and tired. We cannot say enough about how good this place is. We visited other daycare type facilities in the area and nothing compares to this one. If anyone has any doubts ask Darius or Laura to provide our telephone number and we can give a fabulous reference. Grant and Gloria
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.
