We have used Giblert Kennels for years. The dogs are always well treated. Yes, you do sometimes have to wait outside before being allowed to enter. This is because there are other dogs in the office that must be managed first. The reviewer who was just looking for a deal doesn't understand the level of quality that Marcy and her staff offer. Their love for dogs and good owners is spectacularly real and honest.

We had scheduled a grooming at our usual place but because Gilbert's was closer we thought we would see if they could beat the price of our usual place. It took a whole day to track someone down to talk to and she told me to take them in the next morning for an accurate quote. I clearly stated we would only go with them if they were cheaper. My husband took them in and mentioned the same thing & they took the dogs. Later when he went to pick the dogs up he knocked at the door and noticed the owner was inside looking right at him. She made him wait 5 minutes in 100+ degree weather as she stood there looking at him then finally let him in. Needless to say they charged us more & made up a story about not remembering the conversation. When I got the dogs back one had long pieces throughout her body that I had to trim anyway. Not very friedly & not very good business ethic. I will never go back no matter how close & do not recommend it to anybody!

I have been using Gilbert's Kennels for over 2 years now and my dogs love it there. I travel a lot for work so they are there anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks most months. Over the last year I think they spent close to 60 days there - its really like their second home. They are always excited when we arrive and are happy and energetic when I pick them up.

Marcy is truly one of a kind. You can tell she really loves dogs and give each dog care as if it were her own. On one visit one my dogs got an ear infection (which he gets frequently because he's shar pei) and they noticed the problem and just took care of it. He was all better by the time I picked him up. I've been other places in Omaha, and this is by far the best.

When you meet Marci you immediately know that this is the only place you can leave your pet/pets. Marci took care of our (2) dogs an average of 5-6 weeks every year for (3 ) years while we lived in Omaha. The only problem we have, now that we have moved to Raleigh, NC is how to replace the care and genuine love our dogs recieved under Her watch. Don't judge a book by the cover but by the content, Marci is the BEST

Gilbert Kennel is a great place to bring your pet if you want them to feel loved and cared for while your away .. Marcy (the owner) shows each and every dog or cat the same care she would her own .. I would highly reccomend her to anyone!

We have been using Gilbert Kennels ever since we moved Northwest 10 yrs ago. Murphy loves it there. In fact, once he got out of our yard (he is a runner). Guess where he showed up... Gilbert Kennels. I tell him he's going on vacation when he goes and he has no problem saying goodbye. I think he really enjoys playing with the other dogs when he is there.

It is unfortunate that Betty's negative review is included on this site as she doesn't really understand that dogs (like kids) experience separation anxiety and that, because Gilbert Kennels exercises the dogs regularly things such as minor injuries may happen. My dogs have always had excellent care at Gilbert kennels and my sainted Dalmatian Spotty would actually look forward to her visits there. She had a long flirtation with another dog who, when boarded at the same time, would be allowed to spend time with spot, playing and snuggling, etc. Spot has gone beyond "the rainbow bridge" now but my memories of her enjoying Gilbert kennels so much will always stay with me. It seems to me that extraordinary care is taken with all of the dogs, especially fostering friendships between dogs of diverse backgrounds which is incredibly special. A kennel that operates as MORE than a business--a home away from home? GIlbert Kennels.

They would say don't ever take me to Gilbert Kennels again!!! My two dogs stayed at the kennel for four days and I have never seen them so unhappy as when I picked them up. One dog saw me an immediately started crying and foaming at the mouth and the other one slinked out clearly fearful of something. It was not until we were starting to leave that they both started to behave normally and it took a few hours at home before they were relaxed again. Neither dog has ever had a problem being away from us before.

Both dogs' blankets were covered in urine and one of my dogs was injured. She had visible cuts with dried blood on both back paws and a huge gouge on one of her legs that clearly had bled a good deal. I immediately noticed the injuries and could not get any explanation as to what had happened even with some polite questioning.

Staying there for one week, my schnauzer came home with a great attitude. She was genuinely happy. I have taken my dog other kennels as I travel so much. I moved to Omaha a few months back in 2008, and I have never known a kennel to be so personable. It's like one big family of dogs and owners. Everyone smiles, are a greeted so personally at the door. I love this place. I hope my company doesn't transfer me, as I plan on taking "Snuggles" to the kennel every time I go out of town. No more house watching sitters coming to my apartment any more. I think my pet is best kept at the Gilbert Kennels. Nancy H

Toodles loves going to Gilbert Kennels. I love Toodles going there, too. Gives me a break, and gives her more exercise and attention than I sometimes have time to give her. No question about Gilbert Kennels being No. 1 in my choice of kennels.

Lacey has since gone, but everytime I drive by Gilbert Kennels, my fond memories of my pet and her glee when we visited the kennel. How I loved this place and felt good about leaving her there. I never worried. Never. Thelma

I have been taking my dear Ms. Betty Cocker to Gilbert Kennels for many years. A kennel unlike any other. An owner/operator who lives on the premises, again...who is like no other caretaker I have ever met in my 50 years of owning pets. The biggest heart for pets and people. No doubt.

I would not consider taking my pet to any other kennel in Omaha or the metro area. In fact, Betty when asked, "Want to go see Marcy?," perks her ears, tilts her head, and begins to jump for glee of the suggestion of her going to stay at Gilbert Kennels. Seriously!

As all pet owners know, animals instinctively know good from bad places, and people. I'm going by Betty's response that there is no place like "Gilbert Kennels." I'll take the word of my dog, before another human being.

I find it odd that two reviews from Marci H & Betsey S are similar in their language, and I truly suspect they are the same person with a chip on their shoulder. How sad, that someone has taken valuable time to defame and loving kennel and the owner who gives more than 100% of herself to our pets. Shame on you Marci & Betsey for your defaming comments. You should also remember that dogs frequently urinate while away from their owners if indeed your comment is true. No boarding facility is like home. We have all stayed in hotels/motels and they are not like home, but we know we are safe, in a clean environment, and thus we go back again. Same is true for Gilbert Kennels. But Marcy has a magic like no other with dogs. She is truly gifted in her handling of our pets.

We have been boarding our dog here at Gilbert Kennels for 8 years. Marci is the most caring and compassionate woman I have ever met. She has taken care of Sandi many times and we have always been satisfied with her care. Sandi loves going to the kennels and Marci is very kind to her. We will not trust Sandi to anyone else but Marci.

I have been boarding my dogs at Gilbert Kennels since 1995 and wouldn't even consider taking my pet anywhere else. The owner is without a doubt more considerate of pets than anyone I've ever been associated with. She treats each dog like it's her own and I've spent enough time around this kennel to know first hand that there is no way possible that she would treat any pet as is indicated by a previous poster. Such comments are without merit and I continue to recommend Gilbert Kennels to all my friends and acquaintances.

I am a licensed veterinarian in Omaha, Nebraska, and I have recommended Gilbert Kennels since their opening years ago. I have had hundreds of clients use this kennel and have had nothing but rave reviews. I have yet to have one complaint about the care of the animals, the condition of the kennel, or have I ever seen any injuries occur while at Gilbert Kennels.
The owner of the kennel is as compassionate and loving as any person I have ever met. She loves each of her "boarders" as if they were her own, and she cares for them like children.

I trust my own pets to Gilbert Kennels and I will continue to refer my clients to them.

This is the worst kennel that you could possibly take your pet to. After taking my lab there for 4 days, he came back smelling like urine and with some clear behavioral problems and a broken tail! He had urinated on his bed while there, something he never ever does, which makes me think that they did not let him out. I had to throw the bed out because it was absolutely soaked in urine. Couple that with the fact that his tail was clearly broken, also something that I have never seen, it makes me think that he may have been in his kennel that entire time! He slunk out of that kennel, then slept all day for the next 2 days and acted extremely odd. I have never had a problem with a kennel with him before- this place is awful. Never take your dog there!!!!!!!!!!!!
