I love this place and so does my dog. We have been using this facility to board our dog for 8 years now. Maya is still excited every time she arrives, although can no longer jump down to run to the holding area, she waits, tail wagging for us to lift her down.

I love that the animals have access to the outdoor area several times a day as that prevents them from messing their area and coming home stinky! We don't have to drive home with the windows open because of the kennel stink!

Maya has never come home sick or picked up any ailments, she seems happy and well cared for. The longest we have left her has been 16 days and she did not loose any weight, evidence that she was eating well and not in any distress.

I cannot recommend this facility enough - we have had a wonderful experience with them each and every time.

Pros: Best facility for dogs

Cons: A little far away, can be pricey

I'm sorry, I usually do not write reviews but I feel others should know that the dogs are NOT happy here.
I dropped off my 2 pups for just 2 nights; the staff had to drag them inside...
When I called to check up on my pups, the staff did not even know who my pups were...
And of course my dogs were sick at pick up, they picked up kennel cough while there which resulted in a vet trip and antibiotics.
My dogs ran out the door went home and refused to get back in the car, it took 2 days of constant reassurance to get them to even come out of my bedroom for more than the time it took to go potty and eat.
I also doubt my dogs got any type of exercise for when they finally moved from under the bed all they wanted to do was go to the dog park down the road and run for hours. And this was after I paid for the extra "play" time. What a waste. I do not want to even give these people one star but have to in order to post this.
For what the prices are for this place I was expecting much better service and care for my babies, not miserable dogs.
I will NEVER subjugate my dogs to this again, and I would advise others to choose a different kennel.
I do not understand how any unintelligent person who does not care about their dogs would give this place 5 stars.

Pros: ... nothing comes to mind

Cons: my dogs HATED IT! and the staff was not helpful or understanding

I am a dog owner of two, and I don't just leave my dogs with anyone. After doing extensive research of the local boarding facilities. I found only one place to entrust the care of my dogs. Golden Lake. The minute you walked into the office you wouldn't even know it was a boarding facility. Not only did it smell great and dog free and was super clean, you couldn't hear any dogs bark. But the dogs are right next to the office. The tour was wonderful and informative. The owner Rob actually gave the tour personally and is not afraid to answer any questions I had. There is music playing softly at all times and I, as a complete stranger went up and down the rows of dogs and not once did I get barked at. I guess the dogs are tired from all the exercise they get there. I know my dogs were when I got them home, but not a bad or sick tired but a I got lots of exercise tired. The "bunks" the dogs stay in are not concrete they are tiled walls which were goober free, and rubber matted floors they are always dry, They do not spray down the bunks and let them drain, their staff go in and scrub each bunk individually. This place is beyond pristine as far as cleanilness. The staff is amazing. The Camp Counslers are super friendly, very knowledgable about all breeds and you can just see the passion and love they have for dogs. I can't say enough great things about here. They have found a client for life. My dogs are excited when they go, I think they forget I was even there. They know they are going to have a good time. The cost is a bit higher than the local areas, but it is worth every penny knowing the quality of care is outstanding!

Pros: Great Staff, Super Clean, Spacious Bunks,Quality Care, Larger outdoor play areas

Cons: Just that I can't come and be boarded there!

I recently boarded my two dogs at Golden Lake, before I did, I did a tour of other facilities. I would recommend anyone doing this. I found horrific things at the OTHER locations. Golden Lake was not only beyond spic and span, the personal care of my pooches was a welcome change. Their boarding quarters or bunks as they call them, hence the camp them was so clean and the climate was wonderful. They got plenty of exercise due to all the times they have community plays with other dogs. Almost like taking them to a dog park but more supervised and clean. There was no waste on the ground. I truly felt that this was the next best thing to my own home care. They have found a client for life.
