I took my dog here for the first time1 week tomorrow. She is a lovebug totally sweet and giving. She was returned from here a cowering and terrified wreck. The cut was uneven but that is the least of my worries, she now is holding her tail to the right side of her body and keeps sitting down. I have a vet appointment booked to see what is going on with her. Does anybody have any advice they can give me?

My husband and I were able to go away for the fourth of July. We were very concerned about leaving our little "Charlie" with someone for the first time since we moved to the San Diego area. We asked around and kept hearing the name "The Animal Keeper". After taking a tour and seeing how well the employees interact with the animals we felt we had found the right place.
When we dropped our little fellow off, he went with the young lady without a second thought. Although we were sad to leave him for a week, it sure helped to see he was so willing to go with her. (He is usually a shy dog.)
I called several times during the week to check on Charlie. I was told he was eating well and enjoying playing with the other dogs. I was also told that he and another dog had become fast friends.
When we returned to pick Charlie up I had to believe they had told me the truth. Not only had Charlie gained a little weight he was freshly bathed and smelling great.
The best part is our Charlie was in no hurry to come home with us. I plan to take him back for day care so that he can visit his friend.
The Animal Keeper was a wonderful experience for my husband and me. I cannot recommend it highly enough. My husband and I are older and Charlie is more than just a family dog to us.
Thanks again to the staff at the Animal Keeper for making our trip enjoyable because we were not worried about our pet..

Pros: Full Service Boarding Kennel; caring staff; clean;

Cons: none

I recently boarded my dog Satch at the Animal Keeper in Encinitas. I especially would like to mention how friendly and pleasant the front desk person was both when I dropped Satch off and again when I picked him up. Satch almost didn??t want to go home. The $10 I spent on his going home bath was a real bargain. I??m used to spending much more at other places to have him bathed. It??s worth it to board Satch occasionally just for the bath! I??m really happy with my experience at AK and would highly recommend it to everyone.

The Animal Keeper is the greatest. I finally have a place that I feel comfortable leaving my big guys----I have two big dogs and they go to camp and love it. They can hardly wait to get in the door. Amazing how they love to come play with their other buddies in camp and I always feel comfortable leaving them at the Animal Keeper when I go out of town.

We left our Dachshund at Animal Keeper in Poway for 11 days while we were on an Alaskan cruise. When we got our dog back, she had the following: nose rubbed raw (3/4 inch sore), hoarse bark (took over a week to clear up), skin rash on neck (1x2 inch patch), lost nearly 3 pounds (that is 30% of her weight going in), no bath had been given (we called from the airport to let them know we were coming to pick her up). We have left her there before but this was the longest time we have left her. We are certain she did not have a good time. We are doing everything in our power to share dog sitting with our friends and avoid going to any service in the future.

We used this place once when we had to go out of town unexpectedly (we usually prefer friends that the dogs know). The place was very clean and neat and I think they make the best of a kennel situation.

This place is always clean. The dogs seem very happy. I love their outdoor area with the faux grass is always looked nice and neat. They took good care of my cat. They weren't the friendliest people so I did not go back but it was very clean.

They animal keeper is a great kennel but it doesn't seem to work for big dogs. It seems that they cant handle the big dogs as well as the average. The Kennel itself is super clean with very friendly staff and has an outside play area for dogs, its just not accommodating for our bigger dogs.

Over the years we have used The Animal Keeper to board our (large) dogs when we go on vacation. The one in Poway has an outdoor play area on synthetic turf that allows the dogs to get out and run around. Their prices are competitive and they take good care of your pet.
