Wonderful! Both of our dogs love going to the kennel because of the great staff and atmosphere. When our old dog passed away after going here for kenneling his whole life, the staff sent us a card with kind words and reminiscences about him. Then, when we got a new puppy, they made him very welcome and he loves going there now. Highly recommended!

We decided to try this kennel as it was close to our getaway location and regret not using our normal kennel. We were quoted one price when inquiring and then when we picked up our dogs we were charged double what they quoted. Not to mention they charge for play time. Out of all the kennels we have used never have we been charged for play time. We had requested that one of the dogs be groomed and they said he wouldn't let anyone by him yet they told us somebody went in his kennel and played with him. And the staff was extremely rude. Never again! We'll stick with the kennel we've been using for years that charges the same amount but "play time" is included in that price.
Tips & Advices
Many people fear that their pet will be injured at the groomer, but incidents of serious injury are infrequent. For minor injuries , it is appropriate the groomer pay the vet bill, and can usually be worked out between groomer and owner. For moderate to severe injuries, you can attempt to activate groomer’s liability insurance to cover medical expenses. However, be aware that most groomer contracts stipulate that the business does not assume responsibility.
Staff at groomers know that there is inherent risk when handling animals, and they are familiar with being snapped at or bitten. However, it is not a normal occurrence or something you should ignore. Many people choose to cover medical expenses or pay extra--at minimum, apologize and get the dog into behavior classes. It is a given that  you should sedate or muzzle the animal for all future grooming sessions.
It is always recommended to make an appointment to get your pet groomed. While some groomers, especially in the larger pet stores, can accommodate with short notice, popular neighborhood groomers are often booked out two weeks out or longer on weekends.
If your pet has sensitive skin, let the groomer know when you set the appointment. But be aware, all dogs have sensitive skin by human standards--their skin is much thinner. Therefore, you should be on the lookout for signs of sensitivity, and reduce it through regular grooming with gentle, natural shampoo and conditioner. Oatmeal shampoo is a favorite. Daily brushouts and omega oil supplements are recommended for every day at-home care.
For various reasons including insurance clauses and pet-owner relationship dynamics and behaviors, groomers prefer owners don’t stay with their pets while being groomed.
