LOVE BRINGING OUR DOG HERE !??
We have been bringing our dog to Topanga Pet Resort for the last four years and have been very happy ! Suzie pulls us thru the gate to get to Camp each visit so she can go and play with the other dogs in the big playyards for little dogs! We know we can go on vacation and have a good time ourselves and not worry.
We encourage all our friends to bring their dogs to Topanga Pet Resort in Topanga where it is beautiful !
We have been taking our dogs to the pet resort for over a year and are thankful that such a place exists! Kennels we have used in the past would crate their dogs, but not this one! Our dogs are never sad when we drop them off and are always in a good mood when we come to pick them up. The owners are dog owners and lovers, and so are all of their employees. I have recommended them to several friends and have heard nothing but positive feedback. This is a great place with personalized care, and we love knowing that our dogs are in good hands while we're away on vacation.
They are the friendliest people i have met. They love dogs and love their job. Johnny and Tyler have helped me out of situations when i thought i had no other choice. They watch my dog when i am away, walk my dog every day, and have actually become friends through the process. They are wonderful! And anyone would be lucky to have their pet taken care of by them.
if you want a dog kennel that is safe and fun for your dogs: this is definitely the place All dogs are pre-screened for aggressive behavior. And beyond that, there is lots of supervision during group play to insure that things stay calm and friendly. The kennels they sleep in are clean and large and have runs. My one dog has dietary issues and they are careful with food. i also do not use a flea and tick repellent so they spray them daily (if you want ) for a small charge with a natural repellent. If dogs could choose a place to stay- this would be the place. My dogs get excited on the drive there .They are happy when they get there every time. I have never had a problem when I picked them up. It is a large fenced in place with grass and trees, etc. Safe as can be. They also have a large misting area and shade if it is a hot day. The owners have been training dogs for many years and my dogs (and I) were trained there. And the training actually stuck. They also explain why certain things work so you don't send the dogs mixed messages. My dogs come, sit, stay, heel when I ask. And if i say enough; they stop what they are doing. They are great with other dogs and never had a problem at the resort. i can go on vacation without worrying about them. And there is doggy day care too -if you need it.
Pros: long play time nice surroundings dogs love ti
Call now for a Meet and Greet evaluation with your dog and we give you a tour too!
Pros: Beautiful outdoor setting
I heard about this place from my vet and I have been taking my dog here for over a year. He loves it- bounds right out of the car every time I drop him off! I feel great knowing that he's having a good time while I'm on vacation. They are in a beautiful setting with tons of room for dogs to run and play. It's well worth the drive if you ask me! Great, dog-loving staff, plus they have one of the best rates around. My dog has several regular friends that he gets to see whenever he goes, so it feels more like a playdate than a kennel- almost like taking him to the dog park and being able to leave him there! The owners love dogs and own their own, so they really know what they're doing. I know my dog gets high quality care and lots of attention while he's there. I highly recommend them!
Pros: Great serive, great staff, outdoors, lots of space, high quality care, knowledgable
This is the best place that I have found in my to take my dogs for daycare, boarding and training, and I have searched all over LA. My dogs ( a shepard and a husky mix) have gone here for Daycare/socializing, extensive boarding and training since they opened and they love it ! I have one dog that used to not want to get out of the car when I boarded her at other places and would be very shy but she bounds out of the car and through the gates to the pet resort. Both dogs can barely wait to get out of the car and see all the other dogs and staff. Not only are the dogs excited to go to camp they are always happy when I pick them up! \r
The staff is very knowledgable and helpful, and there stye of training is completely in tune with the dogs. I have recommended the Pet Resort to several friends and clients who have very high standards for thier pets care. Everyone I have recommended to the Topanga Pet Resort has thanked me and been very happy with thier experience at the Pet Resort. \r
I love that I have found a place that I know my pets are having as good a time on vacation as I am!
I used to go to this place. They have kids watching your dogs. My dog was bitten severely and they did not call me. They tried to stop the bleeding on their own. He required multiple stitches to repair his damaged ear. They go through staff like napkins. I never even got a call to see how my dog was doing! Take your animal to Canyon View - more expensive but you get what you pay for. Professional trainers, a stunning facility and constant supervision of your animal. Use The Pet Resort at your own risk!
We just moved here from the east coast about a month ago. Our company put us up in a place that did not allow pets, but we have a great dane and a lab. We searched the internet and found Topanga Pet Resort, whose picture gallery looked really wonderful. We were nervous about our dogs being in Los Angles and not having anything but concrete ! Were we wrong !\r
They survived their month - we recently picked them up and they weren't even mad at us for leaving them so long !
We have been going to Topanga Pet Resort for over a year. First we had our mid size dog who did very well there. Then we adopted a very small dog, who was so precious to us because she was small. She has a great time playing under the oak trees that are in the small dog yard ( which is actually quite huge for such small dogs). Anyway, recently we adopted a matching dog for our small dog and lo and behold, this one is quite unruly and needed and needs quite a bit of training. We called Topanga Pet Resort and were very impressed with the improvements in our newest puppy after training!\r
We highly recommend this place for any doggie needs !
Pros: Dogs are outside 5 hrs and more a day in beautiful Topanga countryside,
We just picked up our dog after her Thanksgiving stay and she was happy to see us, but after she settled down and we tried to take her to the car, she kept looking back at the play yards where her dog buddies were still playing!\r
In October, our dog had completed her basic obedience three week training at Topanga Pet Resort. We were at our wits end with this puppy we had tried to train ourselves, but with this training and the home visit that is included, we have learned how to handle her so that all of us are a lot happier! Their Trainer, Victor, and supervisor Keith, who is a Guide Dog instructor, have extensive training experience and their tips were invaluable. The facility has a huge yard for training the dogs, as well as a number of fenced in yards for dogs that are boarding. The staff is very professional and friendly and the grounds are well kept and very clean. The boarding facility is very clean and provides lots of room, both in-doors and out-doors for dogs boarding there. \r
Pros: Expert dog training, Large play yards for dogs, Professional and friendly service\r
Pros: Our dog has such a good time there!
Our dog used to resist getting out of the car when we had to take him to a kennel in the past. Then we found Topanga Pet Resort last spring and now he bounds out of the car because he is happy to go to this 'camp' where he gets to play with the other dogs in the yard for hours every day. The staff is very helpful. We had to go thru a 'meet and greet' which 'Simon' passed with flying colors - we even got to watch it on the webcam. The place is thorough about making sure the dogs have current vaccinations etc. also, which helped us feel more relaxed. We haven't found very many places for this price with so much playtime with other dogs in the beautiful outdoors, such as Topanga, in our searches for a home away from home for our Simon!
Pros: dogs being in beautiful outdoors, dogs playing with other dogs !
We use to Love this place! The owners wife needs some education on customer service. We took our dog there and when we picked him up, we noticed something different about him. Couldn't quite put our fingers on it though. When we arrived home we then noticed four DEEP dog bites underneath his neck (we have photos and vet documentation). The vet said these bites had to be there for at least 24 hours! When I called the resort Sandy the office girl said ""why didnt you say anything sooner"" the owner Pat said ""these things happen, you know the risk, the community wants us to have the dogs play together"" I should go back to guide dog training where we kenneled all the dogs"". I cannot believe NO ONE heard this dog get mauled! He was bit FOUR times under the neck! Where were the staff! Our dog needed to be shaved with antibotic injections (4) and routine antibiotics for two weeks. Do you think this place ever called to check on him. NO!!! I should have sued them and we are still thinking about it. We will NEVER take our dogs to this place again. They have installed video cameras which allow them to be out in the yard less and we beleive no one was in the yard at the time. We are pleased to say our dog is doing great and he still enjoys playing with other dogs.
My brittany spaniel and I just completed a 6 week puppy training class with Keith Tomlinson, the head trainer at Topanga Pet Resort. I'm very pleased with the results and the progress that my dog has made going one hour each Saturday morning for 6 weeks. Keith has extensive training experience and his tips were invaluable. My dog had a bad habit of jumping up on the counter and grabbing things. Keith told me that my dog needed to associate this behavior with a negative outcome. He gave me a few tips on simple steps we could take to get our dog to stop jumping. We took his advice and It only took a few days to stop his unwanted behavior. It was a great class for learning the basics (come, sit, stay, heel, both on and off the leash). I would recommend the class highly for puppies! The facility has a huge fenced in yard for training the puppies as well as a number of other fenced in yards for dogs that are boarding there. The staff is very professional and friendly and the grounds are well kept and very clean. The boarding facility is very clean and provides lots of room, both in-doors and out-dors for dogs boarding here. We'll be boarding our 3 brittanys soon when we go on vacation!
Pros: Expert dog training, Large play yards for dogs, Professional and friendly service
Cons: Nothing apparent
My dogs really like this place. The staff is friendly and professional. I go out of my way to board my dogs here.
