I can say nothing but wonderful things about this kennel. We have been taking our dogs Tyr & Morgan to Home Away from Home for approximately 7 years (multiple times a year). We tell our dogs we are going to see "Aunt" Judy when we take them there. She treats our dogs like her own and has no problem delivering a specific medication regimen to our German Shepard who has pancreatic insufficiency. We had tried other kennels in the area but none compare. One time, I came to pick up the dogs early & found just the two of them playing in a back penned in play area. This really impressed me because I worried about how they deal with being in separate pens when they are normally joined at the hip at home. They also place them across from one another to they can see each other from their roomy pens.

Also, we have never had problem with fleas but we use Frontline on them, prevention is the responsibility of the pet owner, not the kennel (in my opinion).

Was totally unimpressed with this place. The woman Judy was very rude to me from the very beginning. When I picked up my dog she was out of food which means she had been overfed, she had a big gash on her chin that looked like she had been with other dogs which I was not told would happen. And all the sudden she has fleas which were not there a week before when I had taken her to the vet. Then a week later I get a call saying I stopped payment on a check that I wrote to them I called my bank they said there was no such thing done and that check was perfectly fine so I called and told her that she called me back was extremely rude and accusing me of things that weren't true. Needless to say I paid the woman her money in cash and canceled the check right after I did so because I feel like she was trying to scam me. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone lightfoot kennels in sweet valley is 1000% better.

we kenneled our two dogs, amelia and minus in the summer of 2007 for about a week. the staff was absolutely wonderful! the gentleman (howard?) told me a little info about every dog i walked up to, so you can tell they really care about the dogs they keep. judith reassured me that our dogs would be fine without "mommy and daddy" while we went on vacation...i was very emotional that day. the kennels were spotless and large. they also allow you to bring blankets and other items to make your dogs feel at home. the dogs were given a toy by the owners which they could bring home with them, and we just received a christmas card from the kennel for the dogs. how nice. five stars, wonderful kennel.

Facility is clean and dogs can go outside or stay inside. We dropped the dog off from Friday until Sunday. I was a little worried about the dog since she is not left alone very often.

Home Away From Home Boarding Kennel is a wonderful place to take your animals to be kenneled. The facility is always very neat and tidy when I go in there. The staff at the kennel is very courteous. My pets seem to like it there. They are also affordable. I would recommend them.
