I have been taking my dogs to Calgrove Kennels since 1983, 28 yrs, and I have never had any worries about the treatment they received. Both of my dogs would get all excited when I would take them there and the staff would always meet you at the gate and greet the dogs and pet them immediately. Mike became a personal friend of mine and I can't say enough good things about how well he treated the animals and how clean he kept the kennels. I was devistated to find out that he was closing the doors on June 1st and I am not sure where I can find another kennels as nice and as clean as Calgrove Kennels was.

What can you say about the greatest kennel in the world? It's the GREATEST kennel in the world! I've been boarding my two geriatric mini doxies there since they were 8 weeks old, and now they're 13 and 14 years old, and one is in a "doggy wheelchair." Uncle Mike, as we affectionately call him, is wonderful and takes such great care of my two babies. Also, "Aunty Lucy" and "Aunty Christina" are so great with my girls. I do a lot of travel for my work, and I always know the girls are in safe hands when I leave them here. God Bless Mike and the girls for all the love and great time they provide to all our four-legged family members!

This place is the best. I take my dog in for day care on the weekends and he loves it. This is epecially great for people who don't have places for their dogs to run.

I used to take my dog Klaus to Calgrove for doggie day care when he was a puppy - up to about 2 years of age. He absolutely LOVED it and when it came time to go home, he never wanted to leave!!!! Normally he always wants to be with me but not when he was at Calgrove! We now live in Colorado and Klaus is now 8 years old, but to this day if I say "Calgrove" he starts barking and gets so excited. He still remembers!

My dog shakes hysterically at the vet and anywhere else I take him if it's somewhere he doesn't like. He will pull on the leash and I have to drag him inside. He has done this at previous kennels, and I know to never go back. At Calgrove, however, he runs in. When I drop him off, he barely looks back at me as I'm leaving because he's so excited to see the staff and all of his friends. I feel good knowing that they must treat him very well when I'm gone.

My first choice will ALWAYS be the folks at Alpha Pet Dog Lodging Resort in Acton (www.Alpha-Pet.com). Calgrove is clean and will always do okay, but nothing compares to the Alpha Pet Dog Ranch where my dogs clearly have more fun. They stay in huge dog-suites with big private yards. It is tranquil and more personalized, not as loud as Calgrove. Price is about the same, so I do not mind driving a little extra for the big extra benefits my clearly dogs enjoy!! Sorry... but that's the Dog's honest truth :)

Calgrove Kennel is unbelievable, the staff is wonderful. We have left our Brewer there 4 or 5 times now, and the minute we pull in the drive he gets very excited. That says alot to us about how well he is taken care of there. Can't thank them enough, that we can go away and have a good time knowing he's a happy boy.

We have been boarding our dogs with Mike at Calgrove Kennels for over 30 years. Mike has trained our dogs in his obiedience classes and the animals are very well taken care of. Mike, the owner lives on the property and he treats each dog as if they were his own. I have also had my cats there in Mike's "Cat House". They were allowed to roam within the cat house during the day and I really think they did not want to come home. As for our golden retriever all we have to say to her is "Want to go to Mikeys" and she gets so excited. The best. 10 stars.

I've been boarding my friends at Calgrove kennels since 1998 and they have gone crazy with excitement whenever they get a sniff of the place when we arrive at the kennel. That's when you know the place rocks for dogs. They can't hide their emotions. Calgrove is so popular that it is often booked two months in advance. It's crazy but somtimes, from my conversations with Mike, but people think they can just call at the last minute and get a place for their pets. No way Jose! If you care about your pet/friend/buddy/son/daughter then plan ahead and get them booked ahead of time.

I will not leave my Giant Schnauzer with anyone but my best friend. But, she adopted a little female terrier and the two didn't exactly "get along" - so I had to have a place to take my guy when my family went out of town. I looked at so many boarding kennels and Calgrove was so different than the typical kennel. I feel in love! Alex, Lucy and Mike (the owner) treat my guy like their own and the real test of a boarding kennel is....does your dog want to come back after his first visit? My guy loves it there. He's always ready to go to Calgrove - it's camp for dogs!

I would highly recommend Calgrove to anyone who cares deeply about their canine and feline kids. Calgrove has allowed me to go on vacation and not worry every minute I'm away. You can go on vacation and feel secure that your pets are safe and happy while you're gone.

I was never a person that boarded my dogs. However, when I adopted a new dog, I had to suddenly seek another option.

I prepared my questions as I began to visit what were supposed to be the "best" in town, Paradise, Canyon View?.. the list went on as did the miles on my car while I looked for a decent place.

One fed dinner at 1pm so they wouldn't have to deal with clean-up issues in the night, another had a Rottweiler and a quivering little toy poodle next to each other separated by a chain link fence, another only let them out of their cages or runs once a day.

I then interviewed pet sitters and couldn??t find one I was willing to even bring in my mail.

Finally I was told about Calgrove Kennels. The owner, Mike Lovingood and staff, Lucy, Alex and others, are the most professional, conscientious, kind and caring people I have ever met. The facility is spotless and the animals are cared for with as much love as I offer, which is not easy to accomplish!

The animals are not stuck in small runs or cages, they have LOTS of play and interactive time with staff and if appropriate, other animals. Individual records are updated with each visit and every animal visiting is happy! They get to know their guests and learn which ones like to play with others and which ones prefer to sit alone and watch from a distance, which has a bad leg, who is feeling down. The sleeping areas are temperature controlled and a spotless, quiet place to rest.

It is required to make an appointment before boarding so you can ask questions and learn about the facility. Makes sense that you can't just drop your pet off without knowing where he/she is going or how they will be treated, doesn't it?

It would be nice to take our pets with us everywhere we go but as we know, that is not possible. Don??t take my word for it, read what others have to say but more importantly, make an appointment and get to know Calgrove Kennels. In my, now, almost ten years relationship with them, I can guarantee that you will be glad that you did.

I tried 4 times to call them to make an inspection appt, finally decided to drive over there, as I entered on the premises, I was greeted by a man I would assume to be the owner, (He never introduced himself) was given a 5x9 card as his brochure and was rushed back out the door as he was saying he had a "customer" coming in to pick up their dogs, I got a brief answer to when I wanted to kennel my dogs, and he said those dates were fine, to call friday and schedule, then was quickly ushered out the door. Despite the "unfriendly" reception, I called for an appt. The girls that actually answered the phone this time were just as rude, and quickly informed me that "no" those dates were indeed booked up, I tried to explain that I was just there 2 days ago and started to explain to her, but she cut me off mid-sentence with a "well, thats too bad!"
I will spend the extra money and bring my pets back to Paradise Ranch, where they treat you like a human being for the money you spend. Besides, the place looked like a junkyard anyway, and all the dogs I could see were in kennels just like the shelter. Skip Bell

Mike, Alex, Lucy & the rest of the staff are amazing! We have taken our dog here for the last 10 yrs. & he has always been loved, played with, and spoiled. I highly recommend Calgrove Kennels to anyone that has ever been apprehensive about leaving their dog behind while they are out of town. It is clean & the dogs are given lots of one on one attention. I would not take my animals any where else but here !!!! They have more than met my expectations!!

I have been a customer of Calgrove for almost 10 years. They LOVE your pets when you're away. The facilities are spotless and the employees are attentive to you and your pets. I would recommend this kennel to anyone who is apprehensive about leaving their pet behind. Our son calls this place, the "Dog Party" - so that must say something!

Calgrove Kennels have been caring for our pets for the past 5 years. I never worry about anything when we have to leave town, because I know that not only are my cat and dog receiving the best care in the cleanest facility, but they actually somehow manage to train my yellow lab while she's there! She always returns happy, tired, and better behaved. Highly recommended, the ultimate peace of mind.

Calgrove Kennels is the cleanest kennel I have ever been to. The place is spotless, and does not smell of dogs like some other kennels do.

They offer regular boarding but also will provide what I have dubbed "doggie day care" for the less well behaved dog. All of the animals are treated with respect and love. They are exercised regularly so they don't get bored, and are treated very well.

The owner is one of a kind and truly loves his profession!

PROS: Excellent, very clean kennel
CONS: Hard to find the entrance

"THE" place to take your pets while you're out-of-town. They're an excellent, caring facility filled with lots of activities for your pet. The indoor/outdoor kennels are climate controlled, as well as individual pools and play areas for each. They give your pet a minimum of 45 minutes personal attention each day (playing ball, frisbee, etc.) Owner and staff are outstanding.
