We absolutely love this place that takes such terrific care of one of our family! Everyone who works at Shag Bark really enjoys their work - we can just tell! Our little buddy is so happy when we drop him off! The caring staff is always happy to see us and provides a fun and helpful report when he pick him up. We highly recommend Shag Bark for a safe and fun stay for your pet! Book ahead because they are very popular! Our little guy will have stayed with them 5 times this year!

Our dogs love going to Shag Bark for the day if we are going to be gone or for boarding overnight. The staff members go out of their way to make sure that the dogs are cared for and treated well.

Our dog loves spending time here when we go out of town. I recommend signing your dog up for the doggie daycare in addition to the overnight boarding; that way, he/she gets to play a ton during the day instead of staying in his boarding space. It is probably more cost-effective anyway, if you want your dog to be exercised and played with (without the doggie daycare, you'd have to pay for each specific add-on you'd like, such as a walk, play, exercise... and that adds up quickly). Staff has been a lot friendlier over the past couple of years than they were before and seem to really get to know your dog. We've been really pleased! My only complaint is that, although I haven't done any price comparisons to other places, every time our dog is there for a week, we spend like $400 on boarding him! I also am not a fan of the idea that if you don't add any extras (a walk, play, exercise), your dog literally stays in his/her boarding spot with the exception of potty a couple times a day. More "out" time should be included in the base price.

Thank you for taking such great care of Ozzee and Stella. After I picked them up on Sunday morning, they slept all day. For Stella to sleep that much, I know that she must have played hard!

The facility was clean and all the people I met there were so very nice. For such great quality care, the price was great too, because I got a discount for the second dog.

I will board our dogs at Shag Bark again!

I hadn't been able to break through with any training with Dudley until this class. He didn't sit, come, stay, down or heel - Now he does- It is possible to train a very active dog! Thank you, You have been most helpful!

Fine for boarding but I would not recommend for training if you have behavior issues, the trainer did not seem to have a clue! He did not ask any questions before assuming things that were incorrect about the dogs behavior, calls himself behaviorist when he's not a credentialed behaviorist. I did not like the training program, or the trainers methods, based on speaking with the trainer.

Shag Bark has been in business for a long time. Originally it was run by a retired state policeman who worked canine. He trained German Shepherds. His son now does most of the training. They do a wonderful job with training the dogs.
You can also board your dog there. It is not a totally enclosed kennel. Our dog did fine there and was well taken care of but if it was very hot or very cold I think iIwould chose somewhere else.
Excellent for training.
