We heard about Emerson Kennels through a friend at a veterinarian's office in 2003. I have been taking my pets to Emerson Kennels ever since. My 2 dogs and cat are always well-cared for, healthy, clean, happy and safe. One of my dogs is

Well,

It does have a bit of an aroma, but with its age and building materials it is difficult to get the smell out.

I did note the use of bleach in cleaning out the kennels.

I used the facility a few weeks ago about the time the last

The lady seems very nice but you can smell the place as soon as you turn into it. The kennels are outside, old with corrugated aluminum for the roof. Inside it's shabby and there are large akita dogs in small portable kennels. I would not

We have boarded our dogs at Emerson Kennels quite a few times. The owner, Dorie Sparkman, is 100% a dog lover and I never worry about my dogs when they are with her. It is the closest thing to being at home for the dogs. They get many treats each day and time out in the "doggy play yard" at the end of their walk. I would recommend them highly.

Emerson Kennels helps out various rescue groups throughout Florida with boarding while we search for that perfect individual or family wanting to adopt a rescue. The owner, Dorie, treats each animal as if they were her own. She goes above and beyond to care for each and every animal left in her care.

I was so fortunate to have found this kennel when I first moved to Jax. The owner lives at the kennel and has round the clock surveillance. She is so knowledgeable about dogs and especially Akitas, as she is "Akita Rescue Society of Florida". She is always hands on and can be counted on to make sure any boarder is healthy, well fed,exercised,and in a clean environment. I wish every kennel was like this.

I have nothing but total peace of mind when I
board my dogs with Dorie Sparkman--
It has been seventeen years;and four dogs.
I sleep well,when I need to be away ,because
Mrs.Sparkman is ever-watchful of all the dogs left
in her care.
Dogs do,indeed,smile.Because mine are smiling
as they fly out of my truck to be with Dorie.

Thank you for your sincere love you have for
all animals,not just mine!

I have been bording my 3 dogs there for years and have never had any thing less then outstanding results. the lady who runs the kennel also runs the Alita Rescue Society of Florida and has a passion for dogs. she provides outstanding care for my loveable pooches and she walks all the dogs once in the morning and once at night, she also will feed them your special food or the food she uses which in some cases are better then the food you might feed. she also makes sure your pet is comfertable by putting in blankets pillows and toys she also makes sure the animal has plenty of water and is in a sanitary enviroment. she is friendly and funny and is always looking out for your dog. she gets up during the night every 2 houres to check on every dog in the kennel. she also provides cheap traing classes just $5 per class and you can come as many times you want for no set amount of weeks. i love the lady and the care she provides for the dogs are amazing. plus she gives every dog a bath the day they go home so your loved one is sparkeling clean and smells great and has been brushed out. and fyi theres a lways a second side to every review/story

I've been boarding my dog @ Emerson Kennels since 1996 - 4 Akitas. I've always had a great experience w/ them. The dogs are cared for, walked, groomed before I pick them up & she even feeds my special food & gives all the special meds required. I just boarded my 12 yr old girl this past weekend & she was stressed to the max because we were going away. I picked her up she was calm, comfortable & clean. The few time my Service Dog doesn't come w/ me, I board him there - I wouldn't trust him to anyone else. I wouldn't trust any of my dogs to anyone else.

I have been boarding at Emerson Kennels since 1992. My dogs have always been well cared for and given a lot of individual attention. They are always bathed when I pick them up, and they are healthy and happy. I never worry about my dogs when I have to leave them, as I know they will be cared for as if they were the owner's personal pets.

Review 4U has it all wrong. Dogs could not be in better care than with the woman who manages and owns this kennel. ESPECIALLY large breed dogs. I own 3 dogs that board at emerson kennels and wouls not board anywhere else. They get walks and playtime twice per day, excellent care!!!!
I've used this kennel for 10+ years.

Emerson Kennels took horrible care of my dog! The owner lies and ended up costing me thousands in vet bills. I would definitely recommend spending the extra money and taking your pet to a place like Pet Paradise!
