I recently moved to the area from Minneapolis and had worked with animals for 4+ years. I went into Four Paws to get a tour and I have never seen a boarding kennel so disgusting. Every kennel had feces everywhere. There were no blankets, towels or beds on the floor of their kennels. Just a cold hard concrete floor. There was no one outside monitoring the dogs in the "play yard". The dogs looked so sad and miserable. Plus more than half of them looked ill. I would not recommend this place to anyone!! Krown Butte and Lunn's Kennel are very HIGHLY recommended!!

We recently moved to the Bismarck are and were looking for a kennel to leave our dog at while we went out of town for the weekend. We took him to Four Paws Inn, and I have never felt so bad about anything in my life! When we dropped him off, the staff was very rude. When we picked him up, he was supposed to have gotten a bath (we paid for it), but he REEKED of feces. When he got home, he had terrible diarrhea and was lethargic for days. We took the normal food for them to give him, and I had even portioned out each serving so there would be no mistakes. When we picked him up, they handed back the bag of food, and it became apparent that either they had not been feeding him, or they had been feeding him some other kind of food, which was not ok. It is not 4 days after we picked him up, and he is still not acting like himself. If you care for you dogs, do NOT leave them at this horrible place for a minute!

Very bad experience! I had been going to Crown Butte but they are closed for the month of January so I tried Four Paws on a reference. My poor dogs! They wouldn't let me see the area where they were going to be. As I drove away I had a very sick feeling in my stomach and actually came back a day early because of it. When I got there which had only been from Friday to Sunday at noon I couldn't belive what I had come back to. The "kids" working behind the counter were all nervous when I walked in. They again would not let me go back to help bring them forward. When my little cairn terrier came out his eyes were all crusty yellow like he had gotten sprayed from some cleaner and just looked sick. My labradoodle was lethargic and didn't look good as well. I brought in a very expensive bed that they share at home and the young boy and girl said it was wet and asked if I wanted it! I said it was a $250 and what were they thinking. It made me wonder what my dogs were sleeping on or in?? They both stunk and were sick for almost a week after getting them home. I would never recommend this place in fact I discourage as many people as possible if they truly love their pets.

I have since found Lunn's Kennels and have never had a bad experience. They give you the tour, follow a med list if need be and will even call you back if you are wondering how things are going. When I take my dogs there they follow Lynn without leashes to the back...never scared and are truly happy and healthy when I pick them up. I would recommend them over any in town.

My pups having been going to Four Paws for almost a year now, and they absolutley love it!! You could not ask for a better staff either. I have gotten to know so many of the staff personally and they are so wonderful. I would NEVER trust or take my pups anywhere else. At this point in our life I have become seriously ill and am unable to care for my babies. The staff (being as compassionate as they are) are helping to not only care for them on their own time but are also looking for just the right home for them. We feel very blessed to have found Four Paws!!!!

Four Paws is wonderful. I work there and we do our best, which takes a lot of patience, understanding and multi tasking. If there is ever an issue that we miss, it is the customer's responsibility to bring it to our attention. We are very happy to oblige. We work with the dogs and play with them. A lot! Dogs will be dogs, as all dog owners know. Nobody's dogs are perfect...not even ours! It is a joy to be there with them. It is a joy, to them, to come back!

My dog Harley just loves it at Four Paws Inn, he has made alot of new friends in the day care program. The staff there are wonderful, they keep us up todate every time we pick Harley up, Last week he wasn't feeling to good and got poop on his legs, the staff there gave him a bath and cleaned him up. We can tell they take time grooming him every time he is there, Harley comes home smelling and looking good. People need to remember dogs will be dogs, but the staff there makes all the differance. I would tell all my friends to give them a try, your pets will thank you for it. When we were looking for a daycare/kennel for our new dog, the staff were more than willing to take my wife and myself through the whole facility on different occasions. It was evedent that staff take the time to know the pets, because they know them and refer to them by name after just one time at there place. The first day at the facility, my wife called 2 times during the day to get a report and were more than willing to tell us what was going on and said to call at any time.

I have two dogs and with work and vacations need to take them out of town every so often. I have used Four Paws and ever since that experience, I will never go back. First of all the area for them to run and play is quite small, your dogs will be stinky when you get them back. The summer they were there it had to be at least 100 degrees and if there was air conditioning in that building for those dogs...you couldn't tell. They also had to be cooped up in the building with that heat for an extended period as it was a Sunday and no one appeared to be around before they opened for pick-up. The two other facilities that stand above the rest are Lunns Kennel Club and Club Fido. My dogs are soo happy when we go there.

Just picked up our family dog today from Four Paws. We normally use Crown Butte Kennels but they're closed in January. We picked up our dog and when we arrived home noticed his nose had blood, and 3 of his paws also had blood on them. I have not had a chance to call them yet (but plan to in the morning). Nobody said anything to us when we picked him up. He also has an odor...One he didn't have when we dropped him off just a couple days ago. We won't be back.

I read the previouse review on Four Paws Inn and with an open mind
called them to check out THE FACTS. I was surprised the person on the phone was quite friendly and helpful and invited me for a tour and was not rebuffed on any of my questions. We did end up trying it out at first with daycare then over nights and have now had our little Baleigh there for our entire vacation. She had a great time and met some new friend in the daycare program. We know she liked it there because when we go now she tries to get under the gate to get in!!!! Jenn B.

We used to take our dog to this kennel, but never again. The last time we picked her up, she had poop on her legs and paws, here fur was wet and matted and they didnt even offer an explanation or apology.

I have a little dog and I wanted to be sure she could eat the food they provide because she has trouble with large kibble. However, they wouldnt provide a sample, not even for me to look at. They also will not let you see how and where your pet will be kept.

Based on my last experience, I cannot recommend this kennel. They cost $12 a day regardless of what time you bring in the pet. Weekend hours are a pain.

PROS: A little cheaper then others, but you get what you pay for.
CONS: Cannot see where your pet will be kept. Questionable care.
