I left my black lab over the Memorial Day weekend for the first time at Puddleby on the Hill. They were wonderful!! My baby was super happy when I picked him up. He looked like he enjoyed his stay so much. The owner was soo sweet and gave me a full tour of the place when I dropped off as this was our first time staying with them. The facility was clean and just beautiful. The outside area was like something out of a magazine. I would highly recommend this kennel of you need to board your fir baby..

As a long time employee of this kennel, I can easily say that the last review, which makes no reference to an actual boarding experience, appears very much to be the words of a disgruntled former employee. I would suggest that you visit the kennel and I assure you that you will be given a FULL tour upon request during the kennel's business hours. After nearly 30 years of hard work and very competent care for many, many animals in this area, it is sad to read comments that do not reflect, by far, the vast majority of boarding experiences that our customers have had here at Puddleby. Again, I can only encourage anyone who wants to visit and tour the facility to do so. They will meet with committed professionals and they will not be disappointed with the kennel they see.

Everyone who goes to puddleby is amazed by the large grassy play areas, the neat landscaping, the homey feeling office, and the nice room they are shown. When they ask about other rooms, they are told there are 11 other rooms just like the one they are looking at. One part is true, there are eleven rooms, not like the one they are shown. 3 of the rooms are chain link, one is a glorified chain link, and the little dogs are put in 2x2 fiberglass units which are 2 cages tall. The dogs don't go in the play areas, they go into 4x10 runs with concrete floors and are covered with leaky roofs. Please don't be fooled by this old mans lies, he can be very convincing, but next time you go to see the kennel, before you walk into the nice room, take a right at the door with a curtain on it and persist that you check out the rest of the kennel. You will be amazed at what you see. When the kennel does get full, he pulles crates out of the basement or puts dogs in the cat room!

After reading the two reviews below, I just had to write a review. This is the most wonderful kennel we have ever used. First, the price ($15/day for a dog) is extremely reasonable. Second it is very clean and everyone including the owner is extremely friendly and true dog lovers. Our dog is a Wheaton Soft Coat Terrier with lots of energy and she is always delighted to stay. We bring her into the office and she immediately heads for the door into the kennel, ready for another adventure. On the pick up morning, all dogs are bathed and blow dried.

The grounds are beautiful and dogs are taken out every two hours until 9pm at night. We started taking our dog there when she was 6 months old which is important because older dogs sometimes do not adapt well to the kennel experience. I think that the review below was written by a disgruntled ex employee (review states that s/he was a former employee) because whenever I mention that we take our dog to Puddleby, all I hear are raves of the wonderful loving care.

I have boarded a few dogs over the years at Puddleby On The Hill. No other place on Earth has the warmth and love generated by these people. My present baby is a rescue and she's terrified of anyone but me. At Puddleby she bonded with the owner and came home happy and healthy. I used to live in Farmington, NH, Now we live in Tennessee. I have tried 2 different kennels down here with good reputations. One was a nightmare. My Sammi came home stinking and traumatized. The other was cold and unfeeling. When I go home this March for a visit, I'm driving. So I can take Sammi and she can stay at Puddleby while I visit various relatives. Puddleby On The Hill is worth a thousand mile drive, if you love your pet.

We've been boarding our dogs there since 1989. There is no more wonderful staff. There is no cleaner, safer environment to place our boys. Tom and his staff never disappoint. They are very capable, no matter the situation. Everyone there is knowledgeable and patient. I would recommend them to any and everyone who needs a special place for their special friend!

We boarded our King Shepherd there 09-12-09. First time boarding any where. She has seperation anxiety, and adores my husband. The staff was awsome, was very knowledgeable and the place is gorgeous. They really have it together over there and as a former Vet. tech, I would be very picky. Kieana came out to us very happy, and had eaten her supper the night before, which would'nt have happened, if she was uncomfortable. We highly recommend Puddleby's and will use them for any reason that we may need to board. I won't go anywhere else, it's easy to see how wonderful they are to the animals.....sue and don of West Newfield

I brought my 17 month old black lab to Puddlebys in June of 2009 for the first time and we have been back many times since. We have a vacation home in Shapleigh and there are days we need to be away for more than a few hours. We also left her there for a week while on vacation further up in Maine and I'm very happy with her care. I mention the name and she goes crazy. She gets to play with other dogs which is great and the staff seems to enjoy her too, except when she jumps in the watering hole. Can't keep a lab out of the water. The staff is very knowledgeable and have helped us out with some training tips. I would highly recommend them.

So please don't be fooled by the nice homey feeling room with the wooden beams,and the nice classical music. If you were to ask to see the rest of the place where the dogs stay,you would deff think twice about leaving your dogs there. The owner isn't a very friendly man to the workers,and i have seen many dogs get kennel cough while i worked thier. I felt bad for a lot of the dogs there,some people weren't very friendly either to the animals.

Pros: Most of the teens work hard.

Cons: too many to type.

Our Lab/Husky is a big baby very attached to us. She has a little arthritis that often plagues her. This concerned us when it came time to board her.We were very pleased with the demeanor of the staff and owner. Large kennels with homey feel no cement or cage. Clean with frequent trips outside. When she did need her arthritis medicine, after playing, we were confident she received it. We have used Puddleby for weekends and one and a half weeks and were pleased each time. We are now in Farmington NH and still drive the distance to feel our dog is well cared for, at great price.

It sits out on gorges villa looking out over Maine's countryside. Every thing looks spotless and the dogs look like like they have lots of room to run. Don't be fooled! both our dogs came back with: kennel cough . eye infections , and staph infections . Over the course of 1 week each of our dogs lost 11 pounds each . They were so dehydrated that the vet was unable to take a blod sample for 3 weeks. I am not exaderating at all. Our vet was absolutely appalled of the condition that our dogs were in he took it upon himself to write a 3 paged letter to the owner. The owner is oblivious to the dogs and wont let them go to the bathroom anywhere except on marked areas around the facility. Your dogs will be put in the hands of unexperienced young teenagers. All dogs where chock collars except Pitt bulls , bulldogs , and dover man pincers they must where barbed chock collars. These tools can be deadly when given to unexperienced care givers. I recommend that this is the last place on earth to take your dogs !

I started taking my dog there in 1991 when I lived in Sanford, Maine and I would never go anywhere else. Even though I moved to Wolfeboro and then to Tuftonboro, New Hampshire - I still happily drove the hour out of the way to bring my dog there to be boarded when I went on vacation. Although I haven't needed the services of a kennel in a couple of years now, when I do they will be the only one I will call.

We have been using Puddleby's since 1995. The boarding kennels were huge. Our dog was enjoying a fireplace and classical music, post and beam kennels with floor up plexiglass doors,where did they come up with this? We felt bad boarding our pet until we realized that she would be enjoying a great pet vacation!
Puddleby On the Hill has been in the business for years for a reason, low prices and world class care-giving. If was good enough for an ex-governors pet it would certainly do for ours. You guys are the best, Thank you

PROS: Owners are pet lovers and it shows in their service.
CONS: I can not think of one

Puddleby on the hill was recently introduced to me when I was looking for a place to board my dog for the weekend. What an amazing place this was. The owners are wonderful they took such good care of my dog and they even carry different brands of food that way your dogs diet will not be changed. The facility was very clean. This reminded me of a doggie spa.

I like to refer to Puddleby as a doggie spa. This is a beautiful kennel to board any dog. I have brought my dog to other kennels and she has come back extremely tired and smelly. At Puddleby she stays clean and she does not want to come home. The owners are wonderful people and I will never go anywhere else.
