Love it! – We love this place for all of our needs. We have a mixed breed dog that some kennels/ day cares won't even take. Our dog goes to ABK for grooming, doggy day care and boarding. He loves it and is so happy and tired when he returns from playing so much. It is pretty loud, but that is part of the experience. We get a report card on how his stay went. All of the staff knows his name and greets us and him when we arrive. We also brought him here for obideince classes, which were also very helpful. Our dog gets so excited when we turn the corner and he can see the builidng from the car. We love it.
Great Dog Food Program – Made a recent trip to American Boarding Kennels for dog food. Was I pleasantly surprised! New owners have really fixed up this place. Nicely lit show room is fully stocked with premium pet foods, toys, and supplies. Staff was great, and helped me find what I needed. Also nice training room, which is very nicely decorated. American Boarding Kennel is clearly the place to go for all your needs!
Happy Hunter – We boarded our spring spaniel "Hunter" here for 10-days when we were on vacation. Hunter was groomed here and he looks great! He seams to have more spring with his new look. Hunter was also trained not to jump up on people, so we were really supprised how well he behaved when we got him back. We will use ABK again.
This place stinks. – I went to tour this place prior to boarding my dog - the website made it look like a pretty good place. We were "greeted" after about 10 minutes by a teenager who didn't seem to know much. She showed us the kennels: barking so loud I couldn't hear her talk, the smell of dog poop/pee so strong I almost gagged, and hard cement floors with little room for the dogs to lay down or move around. Their "exercise yard" consists of a small (maybe 4 feet wide) strip of grass along the back alley where they "walk" the dogs. "Trained techincians" were nowhere in sight. I wouldn't leave a happy, healthy, socialized dog here, much less an elderly dog or one with special needs (medication, special food, extra attention). NOT RECOMMENDED.
Wouldn't leave my dog here with these inexperienced teenagers – I was considering boarding my eldery Golden Retriever here while I was away for the weekend. The website looked great, so a gf and I decided to check it out. We were very underwhelmed.
The kennels were small and packed together, a run where they could lie down or pace. The suites were better, with closing doors and a comfy couch and tv, but there was no way to see inside with the door closed except by windows.
The "exercise yard" is a narrow strip of grass next to a HS playing field, and an expanse next to Hwy 13's frontage rd.
There was excrement on the floor that our giude casually stepped around.
At the time we visited, it was being staffed by two young ladies, MAYBE in their 20s. Where is the "experienced staff" the website touts?
Wed decided on the strength of our tour to look elsewhere.
