I have a 1 year old pitbull named Buddy who I thought I was not going to to be able to keep him because he was really rough with the kids, always chewing everything up, and ever since he was 8 weeks old we could not get him to walk properly on a leash. He was the one dragging us. I've tried to personal trainers that Came to my house. One of them used the clicker method and charge $75 for 30 minutes and the other used the positive reinforcement training and she charged $90 for 60 minutes. All they did was come over and tell me to continue with what I was already doing. Since none of that worked I decided that to call around to check different boot camps and training kennels but they all were asking around $2500 which was definitely out of the question. So I really felt like there was no hope. Then one day I was at work and I saw the ad for Carolina Kennel, so I called and spoke with Andy. A couple days later I was on my way to drop my Buddy off. When I first got there I tried very hard to find a clue or a reason as to why I didn't want to leave my dog there, but I couldn't find anything. The place was very well kept considering how many dogs he had and there was no smell, all of the dogs he had were in great shape. So I had to come to my senses and accept the fact that my dog needs to be here. Well it's been 3 months since Buddy has been home and he is a brand new dog. I can walk him on and/or off a leash, we don't have to tie him up to the fence when our kids are having a birthday party, when you tell home to sit, stay, lay down and everything else he does it and you don't have to ask him twice. I am very thankful to have found Carolina Boarding Kennel because if it weren't for them I probably would not have been able to keep my dog. I will tell you this... Turning around and walking away from my dog the day that I dropped him off was like having my heart broken, it was by far one of the hardest things I had to do. But it was really worth it and if I had to do it all over again I would do it in a heart beat. Because after all what good is having a friend that you can't even enjoy. Last but not least when you meet Andy (the trainer) and you see the way he interacts with these dogs and she the dedication and the time that spends training, and up keeping his facility you will know he is passionate about what he does and how much he cares not just for his companions but yours as well.

My dogs have stayed here numerous times & I can't be happier. I used this kennel years ago, when it was run by the current owner/manager's father. It's just as good, it not better. About 4/5 years ago, someone else took over the kennel, & from what I understand, Andy, the current owner/manager, has worked long & hard to build it back up to what it was under his father. He has succeeded beyond expectations! Kennels are cleaned 3 times a day, dogs are given ample play time, dogs are fed at a scheduled time & always have clean water. No smells, fleas, or any other problems like I have found when dealing with other kennels. The price is more than fair. If meds need to be administered, no problem...if you need to pick them up later than expected, no problem...JUST PERFECT!!!

I could not possibly be more pleased with my recent experience at the Westbury Veterinary Clinic! We have an older rescue dog who had severe dental issues, and we took her to Dr. Pam at Westbury. When we saw the state of her teeth on the X-rays, it was heartbreaking. It's a wonder the poor little gal could eat at all with all the pain she must have been in! Dr. Pam, assisted by Malissa and Kim, removed all but her canine teeth as they could not be saved, and polished up those four remaining teeth until they sparkled. She is now a happy little dog and no longer in pain. The care and compassion shown by the Westbury staff was top notch, as was the service we received. Thanks to EVERYONE at Westbury!!
