Atlanta Pet Resort is the only place I will board my dog. Friendly staff, beautifully clean environment. I know my dog is always well cared for while I'm away! Convenient pick up hours let me get my dog even when we come home on the weekends.

We've been boarding our dog here for years. The staff is very friendly and efficient, and our dog is actually excited when we bring her here. Their hours are really convenient, and I love that they're open on Sunday. It's a bit pricey because you have to pay extra for playtimes on top of the boarding fee. We've decided it's worth it though because she would get stressed and wouldn't eat when we boarded her at other places. She loves Atlanta Pet Resort, and we do too.

Boarded our Beagle there during Spring Break and the staff were wonderful! I like that each dog had his own large kennel with access to the outside. A nice surprise: they posted pictures of our doggie on Facebook while we were on vacation. :) We were able to pick him up Sunday afternoon, freshly bathed and clipped toenails.

Our pup Jato had never really been away from home and we were very pleasantly surprised with Atlanta Pet Resort. It was incredibly clean and their service was top notch. It is obvious they care about their visitors. We received updates when we called and our pup came home happy and tired. We feel good know our pup is in good hands!

Jato runs his little legs off out in the play yards and has a great time playing with the other dogs. We can't wait to see him again.

Toby never likes being boarded, but Atlanta Pet Resort is the next best thing to home. He always walks through the door voluntarily, and is always welcomed with loves and rubs when we get there. So clean and odor free!

We have been going to Atlanta Pet Resort for years and have been extremely happy with their service. My biggest reinforcement is when our dog greets us after a 9 day vacation. He is as happy the day we dropped him off as the day we pick him back up. If he did not have a positive experience he would go crazy if we tried to leave him there. I love that when we have to show our house that is listed, they tell him to bring him on over, even for for an hour. Great Service!

Craig and Michelle at the Atlanta Pet Resort have always given us peace of mind when we have to leave our dog, Rosie. Their facility is clean and comfortable and for a little splurge, they offer a suite with TV, where your dog can overlook the lobby and have an extra big space. They have a nice, secure play area outside for the dogs to exercise, and we have taken advantage of the playtimes that are available. Weve always been met with a friendly smile when we check in and all the staff have been great.

We've been sending our dog to the Atlanta Pet Resort for years. He loves it there and he is well taken care of whether he's there for daycare or boarding. He's on medications and the staff have always been careful and efficient when they administer the meds. They truly are his second family and my husband and I have great peace of mind whenever we have to leave town. We know he's being played with, taken care of, and loved. \r
It's always been clean and doesn't smell like a pet place. I highly recommend The Atlanta Pet Resort!

WOW, Been sending our cocker there several times a year for five years. The place is always clean & the staff is always very friendly. When we pick her up she always looks and acts fine. The blanket we leave for her is always washed & clean. As an old guy who has been having pets borded from time to time for over 40 years I can tell you this place is great.

Needless to say, I'm a bit picky about everything that I do. I toured this place twice and called another time. I checked them out on-line and with friends. Well let me tell you, I LOVE this place. They cared for my two goldens over the week of my wedding, so I was already a wreck from that and they totally put me at ease. I only called them once (just before our honeymoon). When I arrived to pick them up, I saw them playing outside and that just made my day. I'm so happy to have a great place that I trust to leave my babies now. See you next time. Thank you thank you thank you\r

Our pleasure and by the way ... Congratulations on your nuptials. We're sure it was tough to only call once to check on your guys, but next time feel free to call a couple times if you like. We encourage our guests to have their humans call us to ensure that all is well. It was a pleasure taking care of your poochies while you were on your honeymoon and we are glad to hear that everything went well over the week. See you soon.

I would highly recommend Atlanta Pet Resort because of their overzealous love for animals. They take pride in making your pet feel comfortable while you are away. We do not leave our fury child with just anyone, but we feel comfortable leaving her there simply because the staff is extremely friendly and you can tell their love of animals as soon as you walk through the door. We have never had a bad experience with them which is why we have been loyal to them for several years. They treat your pet as if it was their own. We never feel guilty leaving her there while we are on vacation, because we know that she is being well taken care of and that she is in good hands.

I posted here about 3 years ago and have been using this kennel ever since. I go out of town a ton and my pets and I always have a great experience there.

If you go there and actually talk to the owners, you will find them to be great people with a wonderful family there (and I mean their employees too).

My dogs love it there and I see it every time I drop them off and pick them up. If you really wonder about them, go see them. They will welcome you and greet you like family.

I drive by this resort every day and see people playing with dogs in the yards, so I just had to stop and check it out. I made a reservation for Nike(my sharpei) for a week over Labor day. I got him a couple of play times while he was there cause he loves to play with other dogs. When I came to pick him up, he was waggin his tail to see me, but he ran back to the employees that checked me out to say good bye. It was sooo cute. I can't wait to go on vacation again and neither can Nike. I love this place. \r

This was the second time we've used Atlanta Pet Resort. The first time was only for a few hours, and we had no problems with them. We left our 2 dogs again for 5 days. When we picked them up, the staff handed us their dog beds filthy and with the covers off. One of our dogs had severe diarrhea for 3 days after she came home. The other, who is pretty resilient to everything, has seemed frightened since we've brought her home (over a week) and not her normal self at all. We have left them for longer periods of time at different places, and I have never seen them act this way. I'm not sure what happened while they were there, but I know it definitely was not pleasant or comfortable. We also didn't realize until the day we had to drop them off, that they don't even take your dogs out of the run at all, unless you pay extra for 15 minutes of playtime with other dogs. We of course paid for the playtime, since we didn't want them locked in the run all week. We will never take them there again.

This was the first visit for my 2 dogs to the Atlanta Pet Resort. They stayed for almost 2 weeks. I was very concerned about their stay because they are not normally good eaters when we go on vacation, but I was pleasantly surprised when I picked them up and they had not lost any weight. They got a playtime every day and a bath just before we picked them up. They smelled great and looked great, too. I'm so happy that we found them. My puppies will never stay anywhere else. THANK YOU Atlanta Pet Resort.

I leave my pet at Atlanta Pet Resort for day care every week and board him there at least once a month. He loves it there. Whenever we get in the car to go there, he gets really excited and he can't wait to get out of the car to play with all of his buddies. The staff really loves pets there and you can see it in the eyes of dogs like mine by how excited they are when the get there.

Being new to the area and required to travel quite a bit, I needed to find a reputable and reliable boarding facility for my fur-family.

After reading some of the reviews, I was not sure what to expect, so I went in for an unannounced tour. Having traveled so much in the past, I have experienced a lot of kennels from Colorado to Illinois, and feel I have a rather critical eye (and nose) when touring kennels. I must say, my first impression was MOST favorable. The lobby is clean, airy, open and there is not any hint of "kennel air" or unpleasant fake scents to try and mask odors.

I was warmly greeted by a manager, and when I inquired about the owners, I was informed that one of their parents had just passed, and they were attending the funeral services. Okay, I can understand that the owners would not be present at their business - HELL, I would have probably closed my doors for a few days -- but that would have left many people very disappointed, and the managers seemed to have everything running quite smoothly from what I observed.

As the tour started, I was stopped before proceeding into the back area where most of the dogs are boarded, here the manager informed me that it tends to get a bit loud initially when the dogs see new people come through. Sure enough, what went from just a few dogs "talking" erupted into a cacophony of a full kennel at high alert. However, the dogs quickly settled back down again. I made a point of walking all the way down the main aisle, so that I could look into the cages and see for myself if all the dogs had water and if any were sitting in dirty cages. Sure, there was some kibble that was knocked about (my own dogs love to kick their bowls over just to watch me constantly pick up after them) Apparently, there are some dogs that like to play in their water, and they have been given buckets that get clipped to their cage, instead of bowls that they can dump easily (I like this idea, and may steal that idea for my own home!). What I did not see or smell was the typical "kennel" smell. The tour proceeded to the outside portion of the runs where I could also view the "play yards" where there were several employees with a group of dogs obviously enjoying themselves (people and dogs) and the employees were actually interacting with the dogs, and not just standing off to one side watching the dogs play.

Since I have several dogs of varying ages, and one with special needs, I was concerned with an earlier review regarding attention paid to feeding and medication. Well, my fears were laid aside after discussing with the manager and being shown the VERY detailed records this kennel keeps on all boarders. OMG, I don't keep such detailed records on my own dogs! The manager (I wish I had gotten her name) opened one book that showed morning and afternoon feedings and which dogs did not eat, or only ate a portion of their dinner, and how much food they had remaining in their bowl.

They have another book that logs which dogs defecated in their run/cage overnight, and another log to keep track of when they "go" during the day (and if it is firm, normal or loose).

Because of my concerns regarding medication, I was shown the procedures, and I dare say that it would rival my veterinarian's office for efficiency. (employees must sign off when giving medication, white boards for urgent reminders, refrigerator available for perishables)

This is by far one of the best boarding facilities I have toured, and I felt very comfortable making a reservation and leaving my fur-family in their care. This was validated when I returned from my first trip, and picked up the family, and they were clean and all happy and obviously well exercised, as they did not go bouncing off the walls upon our return home (hallelujah and thank you!).

I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend the Atlanta Pet Resort to anyone looking for a QUALITY facility for their fur-family.

Being new to the area and required to travel quite a bit, I needed to find a reputable and reliable boarding facility for my fur-family.

After reading some of the reviews, I was not sure what to expect, so I went in for an unannounced tour. Having traveled so much in the past, I have experienced a lot of kennels from Colorado to Illinois, and feel I have a rather critical eye (and nose) when touring kennels. I must say, my first impression was MOST favorable. The lobby is clean, airy, open and there is not any hint of "kennel air" or unpleasant fake scents to try and mask odors.

I was warmly greeted by a manager, and when I inquired about the owners, I was informed that one of their parents had just passed, and they were attending the funeral services. Okay, I can understand that the owners would not be present at their business - HELL, I would have probably closed my doors for a few days -- but that would have left many people very disappointed, and the managers seemed to have everything running quite smoothly from what I observed.

As the tour started, I was stopped before proceeding into the back area where most of the dogs are boarded, here the manager informed me that it tends to get a bit loud initially when the dogs see new people come through. Sure enough, what went from just a few dogs "talking" erupted into a cacophony of a full kennel at high alert. However, the dogs quickly settled back down again. I made a point of walking all the way down the main aisle, so that I could look into the cages and see for myself if all the dogs had water and if any were sitting in dirty cages. Sure, there was some kibble that was knocked about (my own dogs love to kick their bowls over just to watch me constantly pick up after them) Apparently, there are some dogs that like to play in their water, and they have been given buckets that get clipped to their cage, instead of bowls that they can dump easily (I like this idea, and may steal that idea for my own home!). What I did not see or smell was the typical "kennel" smell. The tour proceeded to the outside portion of the runs where I could also view the "play yards" where there were several employees with a group of dogs obviously enjoying themselves (people and dogs) and the employees were actually interacting with the dogs, and not just standing off to one side watching the dogs play.

Since I have several dogs of varying ages, and one with special needs, I was concerned with an earlier review regarding attention paid to feeding and medication. Well, my fears were laid aside after discussing with the manager and being shown the VERY detailed records this kennel keeps on all boarders. OMG, I don't keep such detailed records on my own dogs! The manager (I wish I had gotten her name) opened one book that showed morning and afternoon feedings and which dogs did not eat, or only ate a portion of their dinner, and how much food they had remaining in their bowl.

They have another book that logs which dogs defecated in their run/cage overnight, and another log to keep track of when they "go" during the day (and if it is firm, normal or loose).

Because of my concerns regarding medication, I was shown the procedures, and I dare say that it would rival my veterinarian's office for efficiency. (employees must sign off when giving medication, white boards for urgent reminders, refrigerator available for perishables)

This is by far one of the best boarding facilities I have toured, and I felt very comfortable making a reservation and leaving my fur-family in their care. This was validated when I returned from my first trip, and picked up the family, and they were clean and all happy and obviously well exercised, as they did not go bouncing off the walls upon our return home (hallelujah and thank you!).

I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend the Atlanta Pet Resort to anyone looking for a QUALITY facility for their fur-family.

I have been going to the Atlanta Pet Resort for a number of years and love it. My pet is always welcomed. Greeted by friendly staff and the owners were there to show me around. Playtimes are always a treat and Bailey loves to get a bath at the end of her stay. She is always happy when she comes home.
I would and do recommend the Atlanta Pet Resort to all of my friends and to co-workers too.

We have tried different places to board our dog previously and were satisfied with most of them. This time we wanted something special. Two potty walks and playtime sounded great. So we spent that extra money hoping that our dog would have a good time while we were having fun without her.

What a rude awakening, when I came to pick her up.
As soon as I opened the door I noticed that bad smell of urine. Several dogs were barking constantly. The owners were nowhere to be seen. (Well, it was past 5 pm on December 27 and they can't expected to be there all the time, however, they should know what's going on when they are not there!)

There were only two employees present (visible). One of them went to get my dog. When she came back she had my dog's bed in a plastic bag. Urine was dripping out of it. My car smelled terribly all the way back. My dog is potty trained and usually doesn't go potty more than twice a day.

When I came home, I had to wash the bed and give the dog a bath because that poor dog smelled terrible. This has never happened before at any of the other cheaper places. I doubt very seriously that my dog had two potty walks at this place, let alone play time like they promised and what we paid for. Was is because of Christmas and the owners not being around? They need to make sure their staff is doing their job.

I will not put my dog in that place ever again!

I have used then kennel several times. There have been no serious problems other than my dog was extremely tired after the first long 4 day visit. My only expectation of a kennel is that they do what they say they are going to do and what I am paying for. I have not gotten a 'warm and fuzzy' feeling from the owners that this is what I am getting. So far, they have shown far more concern for the money they get then the customer service they provide. I was told by the owner on the first visit that I would receive a detailed account of how my dog did at the kennel in terms of feeding and play times but when I came to pick up my dog, the owner acted like she didn't know what I was talking about when I asked if my dog ate all her food. I found out later that the kennel did not use the food I provided on the first visit as they said they would. They still had the bag of food two visits later! So don't bother to bring your dog's food if it isn't medically necessary. In fact, this would probably be the wrong place for you if your dog requires any special attention regarding food or medicine. I would have more confidence in them if they had web cams. Although the handlers, in contrast to the owners, have been very nice and attentive when I have been there, too many times I have driven by the place to see a handler standing out in the play area smoking a cigarette with a dog on a leash. Play times just may mean smoke times to some of the hired help and nothing else. I will use this kennel again and I will change this review if my impressions improve, but until then I think prospective clients should be cautious and do impromptu inspections if possible.

PROS: Convenience to I-75 and Cobb Pkwy
CONS: Greedy money focused owners.

It is never fun to have to leave your pet behind when you go on vacation, but Atlanta Pet Resort makes it easier. Our dog is like a family member and we wanted to make sure she was well cared for. This great boarding facility is climate controlled and they have 2 playtimes and 2 potty walks per day. You don't have to worry about your furry friends being left in the cold or just caged up and not cared for properly. They even offer a walk through inspection so you can feel completely comfortable before dropping off. Highly recommended!
