My parents have been boarding their dog, Nubs, here ever since 2004. A year ago Nubs passed away and we had no reason to use a boarding facility. in November (2014) my wife and I got ourselves a 6 month old puppy and had to almost immediately board him due to unexpected events. In the rush, we didn't look around and chose the first place we found. I won't say the name but, while the cost was a little cheaper than Lakeside, we got our puppy back 1 week later to find he was extremely stressed and seemed to have forgotten all his house breaking behaviors. Last month we found ourselves in another unexpected scenario and needed to board, this time for 2 weeks. We were reminded about Lakeside and called for more info. They were extremely helpful are caring over the phone while we explained the past events. They asked us to come for a tour even after we said we decided to book with them, just so we could have a better piece of mind. The facility was completely different from the "Warehouse" we used prior. Lakeside felt like it was actually one large home for dogs instead of a factory setting. The services and environment were beyond what we expected. The staff all seemed like we were old friends and they took to 'Simba' as if he was their own. After the two weeks we picked him up to see that not only did he 'relearn' his house breaking but he also smelled better than before! (with no grooming) He wasn't the least bit scared or nervous upon picking him up either. We didn't think the other facility was "that bad" we just thought it was normal, not having shopped around like we should have. It's amazing how much of a better experience Lakeside was. I would recommend them to anybody without a second guess. I signed up for this site just to post this review, that's how happy we are!

It is not often that I will post a review.

Lakeside Kennel deserves the recognition though. My poodle boy has been going to Lakeside since 2007. From the time we first spoke on the phone, manager Bonnie has been kind, patient and knowledgeable. Her love for what she does shines through in every interaction. My pup was NOT happy to be left away from home. He doesn't know that he is a dog, poodles can be like that. Bonnie brought him up to the front of the kennel where he could see and hear and watch the coming and goings in the front office and be around people. This made going to Lakeside much happier for my pup. He loves Bonnie and her staff. He always comes home happy and healthy.

I have never worried when my dog is with Bonnie because any concern has been promptly addressed. Any distress is reported to me and discussed immediately.

The outside playtime option is a wonderful way for the dogs to get some extra exercise...even if like my boy there is always an extra game of chase before he wants to go back inside!

Bonnie has helped with food choices for him and grooming suggestions.

The groomers have been professional and kind. The one time that we were not happy with a new groomer, the situation was handled professionally and promptly.

When my dog was skunked, Lakeside had me bring him right over and helped to destink him so that I could concentrate on the destinking things at home.

I have recommended Bonnie, her assistant Aspen, and the rest of her staff to friends and family and will continue to do so.

Lakeside Kennel is a wonderful find!

Usually I don't post reviews but after seeing these negative comments I feel compelled to. I have been using Lakeside for YEARS and let me start off by saying I have two special needs dogs. One needs to be kept on a VERY strict diet and be on different medications and the other requires insulin and isn't to keen on getting a needle. I was leery leaving my pets with ANYONE let alone a kennel. From the moment I dropped off I felt comfortable. The asked me a bunch of questions about my dogs and one is finicky around the head area and the gentleman taking her back was very patient with her which I appreciated greatly. Once they were back there we discussed vets, phone numbers and I was going out of the country for two weeks so I left numbers they would be able to contact. I even had a few quirky requests which they were more than accommodating to.

During my trip I was able to keep in contact through facebook where I was sent pictures and videos and was given a thourough report card on how they were doing. I was expecting to be told they were doing "good" and they were "happy" but I got so much more. They told me some of the quirks my dogs do which showed they really KNEW my dogs.

Upon returning I was more than pleased. The bill was more than reasonable and they were sure to return all of our belongings and extra medications and extra food. I was greeted by two VERY happy dogs. I was concerned after two weeks they would have either gained or lost a significant amount of weight but they were exactly as I had dropped them off. Both dogs seemed extremely comfortable and I will NEVER board anywhere else.

Customer has 2 very dog aggressive Pit bulls who turned on each other during board. Other than feed separate and keep away from other dogs, no specific instructions were left. It is unfortunate customer has 2 dogs that have had fights in the past.

But to try to blame a boarding kennel for their 2 dogs fighting that have had previous fights and then to board in the same cage is absurd.

PS I am not a vet and would not treat an animal only bring to the vet which customer declined. The best solution for boarding these 2 dog aggressive dogs would have been to board separate. Customer wanted the multi-pet discount.

Young, inexperienced staff that was very resistant to accepting specific advice to my dogs.

My dogs were in a fight during their stay and the wounds went untreated. As a result one dog had a significant infection and resulted in a large vet bill.

Completely uncompassionate response to situation and felt like being pushed out the door. Deeply unsatisfied with previsit and post visit.

My parents used Lakeside kennel with the family animals growing up. Now that I have my own dogs I wouldn't trust anybody else with them. We have never had a bad experience in all the years of boarding (1990's-2010). The rates are reasonable the care is excellent. The staff are knowledgeable, reliable, caring and compassionate. Even during the big storms we had last year-the staff was there taking care of the dogs. No kennel in the area even comes close.

THis is the WORST dog grooming facility we have ever experienced. Our dog was harmed and we warn you not to patronize this business. Do not say you weren't RECENTLY warned as this is dated from Oct 2010 while the other postings were yr ago. Our dog suffered and we encountered a huge vet bill to get him better. BEWARE of Lakesides Grooming Facility. Upon confronting the situation, the manager negated any responsibility even after confronted with a vet bill detailing their negligence. We were so upset. BAD GROOMERS and MGT.

We have been using Lakeside for almost 15 years and we have never been disappointed with their service and staff.
The care they give our pets is outstanding.
The people who do the grooming are some of the best we have encountered. Kelly has done a terrific job every time.

We have used Lakeside's boarding and grooming facilities for many years, and Lakeside continues to be the only kennel where we will leave our pets. The best indicator to us is that our animals are very happy to go to Lakeside. They do an outstanding job grooming, and taking care of our dogs when we are away. The price is high, but so is the quality!

I have used Lakeside for about a few years (maybe once or twice a year) and have always been pleased with the service and staff. This July 4th I entrusted them with my Bichon and also opted to get the grooming service. I was pleasantly pleased. This was the first time he actually looked like a Bichon and not a Poodle (nothing against Poodles). He knew he was looking good as pranced out of the gate and hopped in the car. The staff was and has always been so attentive and professional. So Thank you Lakeside and I look forward to using the boarding services as well as having my Bichon groomed there in the future.MFish owner of Daunte

We've been taking our dog to Lakeside for years. They were recommended to us by another satisfied customer. Especially nice are the inside/outside runs and the play area. They remember our dog and he comes home happy and looking good after grooming. It would be even better if they accepted credit cards.

I have been having my dogs groomed at Lakeside for many years and they are happy with the experience and I am happy with the way they look. They come out prancing. They are reasonably priced compared to others. I definitely would recommend them.

This is by far the best kennel in NJ. Indoor and outdoor kennels. Staff that is knowledgeable, caring, and very capable. I never worry leaving my dog at Lakeside.

Sure there are cheaper kennels but you get what you pay for, I don't mind paying more and getting quality service & a dog who is happy and most of all healthy when he comes home.

I knew from day 1 this was the place when they invited me in for a visit to show me around.

It will be hard to find another kennel when we move...

I would NOT recommend this Kennel, they are so overpriced and have a lot of young people running the show when the owners are away that don't know how to run a business. Other surrounding kennels are nicer, cheaper, and more professional. Wouldn't ever go back!!!!!

I recommend this kennel. The staff genuinely like animal and it is not just a job. My two labs come back looking good and I get them groomed at the end of the week. They are pretty flexible in their drop offs and pick ups. Their prices seem to be competitive. One time we dropped of our dog off for a stay. They were separate runs means they are big and they called see if it was ok to combined them as one seemed to be sad.

I recommend this place for your dog and cat sitting for your get a ways and would be in good hands.

I recommend this kennel for both dogs and cats. The staff is caring and try to keep the animals as happy and comfortable as possible. They have play time in the largest private play yards I've ever seen.

The kennels and the yards are so clean they're spotless.

We have taken our dog here since he was a pup and they still know him 7 years later! They take very good care of their dogs and it is so clean that it doesnt smell like a kennel. I wouldnt take my dog anywhere else. Its a 30 minute ride there from my home but it is so worth it!

i would not reccomend this kennel at all as i have been there a few times and my dogs came out with kennel cough..i had to take them to the vet and spend an arm and a leg on getting them better..these people did not care at all when i spoke to them and told me that they did not require the kennel cough shot..please keep your pets healthy and do not use these people to care for them.
