Do not ever board your dogs or cats at black birch farm. at first glance they seem clean and professional but they are not. George isn't a bad person and neither are the people who work for him but he just does not care. his priority is making money and nothing else. His training classes were terrible. My dog is petrified of him, he refuses to even walk in the building now. i boarded him there once and it was the biggest mistake i ever made. From now on i am boarding him at Lordship Kennels in Stratford. the staff there hasn't let me down so far and my dog seems to love it.

WAS a long time customer. Left my dogs at this place for the weekend (Hurricane Irene...had a wedding to attend). Came back early Sunday and wanted to pick up my dogs as the area at Black Birch Farms was flooding. George would not let me take my dogs. He finally agreed to let me take them home. He overcharged us. He made us pay for the entire day on Sunday (we picked up our dogs at 12 noon) and charged us for half a day on Monday. Very rude person George. DO NOT TAKE UR PETS HERE!!! He was more concerned about making money. He did not care that we were in the middle of a hurricane and his place was under water. I WILL NEVER TAKE MY DOGS TO BLACK BIRCH FARMS EVER AGAIN!!!!! My dogs were starving, thirsty and dirty.

One more thing, we informed George that one of our dogs was blind and to be careful when you walk it. When we came back he said oh your black n white dog ran right into the fence...not sure why. OMG George...we informed you that our dog was blind!!! Of course she would run into the fence. We asked you to watch our bc she was blind.

I posted my comments on another site about this kennel. I'm only posting here in response to the comment concerning Kennel Cough. My dog has been going to this place since he was a puppy. I am so dissapointed in George and how irresponsible he was in handling an outbreak of canine influenza and kennel cough in his building. He was asked to shut down for two weeks and thoroughly clean his building. He refused and willingly accepted dogs and jeapordized their health. The worse part is he NEVER informed our family of this outbreak and FAILED to give us a waiver stating there was this outbreak in his facility. My dog got very very ill and this could have been prevented. Shame on George. Those who say he cares obvoiusly have not experienced when things go wrong. George never called, not once, to check on my dog.

I'm obviously very upset because my dog is older and had all his vaccines and I trusted him with George. This is the first time in my dogs history with us that he's been seriously ill.

Please know I never complain. This entire issue could have been avoided if he truly cared about our animals. Please board with caution.

Ps- I have never boarded my dog in the other place mentioned. Blackbirch has been the only place for many many years. He has nothing in common with the other dogs that have became sick there.

My dog has been going to daycare there since she was 5 months old. The facility is very clean and the staff clearly love the dogs. My girl loves going there every day.

I few years ago I left my 2 goldens here. Left them my cell number. I decided to call work while on vacation at Disney. There was a voice mail from Black Birch saying they lost my 6 month old golden that she slipped from the leash. Why the were walking her where she could get lose I don't understand. I called the Milford police and they a report of a lost golden from there. They found her said she was lost in the kennel and the owner George told me that it ruined his vacation and that he had to call in extra help to find my dog. Never again!

We have been using Black Birch since our border collie Shea was just a puppy. I visited many kennels in the area and Black Birch was by far the most clean as far as kennels go. Shea always comes home smelling clean, well fed and happy. He even came back more obedient and learned new tricks -- so I know they spent some time with him! I have rec'd this place to many of my friends and all have had great experiences.

I have three dogs that I brought to BBF for a week when I was away. they did not give my dog its medicine. I had to take her to an emergency vet a soon as I got there because she wast breathing well. The vet said that she defiantly wast given her medicine when they got the blood work back. When I picked them up all of them were starving and looked thin I don't think they were given enough food while they were there it took days for them to look normal again. I can't believe that people would do this to dogs they are supposed to care for. If you love your pet stay away.l

I took my to dog here well I was away for a weekend. Our dogs were fine when we arrived. when we picked up our dogs there was a sign about a rare Kennel Cough going around the kennel. That night I woke up to my two dogs coughing. I took both dogs to the vet the next day. it cost me 250 for the appointment and medicine. when I called Black birch they told me that it was my problem and that they have known about the Kennel cough for about two weeks and said nothing to us when we brought our dogs in.The Girl who works is the rudest person I ever met and acts like u are bothering her when you ask her questions about your dog.

we take our dog there every work day so he doesn't have to be home alone. He loves it! He is always so excited to get inside. He has friends there he plays with all day long. This has really helped socialize him and he is a great dog who gets along well with people and animals.
the staff is extremely helpful and we have never had a problem. iff he gets dirty during the day they give him a bath.
also, we take our dog there for training classes. these too are great! we have a wonderful, well behaved obediant dog.

After reading all the reviews of black birch farm i didn't want to even look at the place but i decided to anyway since we needed to go on vacation soon and i was new to the area. I had called them to see what they had to offer and they were very helpful in explaining everything to me, later on that day i took a tour of their facilities and i loved there indoor/ outdoor kennels. i booked my dog for a week stay and i had left her toys and bedding and got everything back and my dog even got a free bath and was very happy when we got her back and was playful with the staff! i recommend anyone to check them out!

The first time I used them, I brought my dogs bedding...I thought it would make him feel more comfortable. When I picked him up, he was all wet, they hadn't dried him. I asked for the bedding, they said I never brought it. I insisted I did but they couldnt find it....why wasnt it in his cage??? A couple days later they called and said they found it. I picked it up and it reaked of urine. Every dog in that place must have walked by it and urinated. I threw it away as soon as I got it.
As if that wasnt bad enough, I gave them a second try. I booked my reservation in the fall for the spring. They confirmed everything was all set. I phone again a couple of months before I was going to board him, George told me everything was all set. A week before we were leaving on our curise, I phoned again to confirm. They told me that he needed the Kennel Cough treatment. I asked why they didnt tell me that a couple of months ago when I called....as it was too late for him to have it now!!! It needs to be done at least a couple weeks before boarding. I asked George about this....he didnt want to know anything about it! He was rude. Never again...never again.

It is a horable buisness. Dogs have died there and alot of dogs have gotten away and hot by cars. it's not george but since he is not really even there it's his STUPID ASS EMPLOYEES THAT KNOW NOTHING ABOUT DOGS AND ARE THERE JUST TO MAKE A QUICK BUCK. they are the ones that TRY to give your dogs meds and screw up all the time. DON'T GO HERE IF YOU LOVE YOUR DOG

We purchased a Giant Schnauzer puppy from George in 2002. I paid $2000 for this dog which was "guarenteed". Well within 4 months she started leaking urine, not peeing, but dripping urine whenever she fell asleep. Our vet stated this was a breeding problem. When we contacted George, he denied it as a problem, Said he had never heard of this before. I have spoke with others who purchased a dog from this litter who had similar problems. We were never able to get in touch with him again, he never returned our many calls or emails. She is now 5 and takes medication daily to help control the leaking, but despite it she still leaks. BE VERY WARY OF THIS BUSINESS. I have not been to the kennel, but based on my experience with George, I WOULD NEVER TAKE MY PET THERE!!

My dog was not even a year old when we started taking her to daycare there. Needless to say shortly afterwards, they let her chew on a wire fence, she came home with a bloody mouth and when I called them to ask what happened George didn't want to know anything. It was only after pleading and cried that he told me the truth of what happened. He also stated that he was not responsible. He told us if the dog died or ran away that would be different. Needless, to say almost over $3,000 in medical bills to get my poor dogs teeth fixed and they could of cared less. Do not take your dog there if you love it and to top it off the video camera they stated they had to check in on your dog never worked. George should be ashamed of himself. I was very disappointed in the way he treated us after she got badly hurt. DO NOT TAKE YOUR DOG THERE.

PROS: None
CONS: Pretends to care about your dog until something happens to itl.

I have used Black Birch many times to board my dogs, even dropping him off with his bed and favorite toys. They are always pleasant and seem to be very good to the animals and honor any requests you may have. I highly recommend them.
