We chose the Rustic Ridge Boarding Kennels based on other reviews found here, and are very happy we did. Donna is professional, trustworthy, and for us at least - right in the neighborhood! We will definitely call the Rustic Ridge Boarding Kennels again to 'babysit' Jack the Cat on our next trip out of town.

I highly recommend the Rustic Ridge Boarding Kennels. Rustic Ridge Boarding Kennels seems to have a way with my dog that no other groomer can match. She provides incredible in-home service, and my dog loves her. She is trust-worthy, professional, and dependable. A+++++

Donna at the Rustic Ridge Boarding Kennels comes to you home on time and prepared. I have found it is a much better experience for my pet having me help. She is calmer which is conducive to a better groom. Donna is gentle and patient. The cost of in-home grooming is higher but I've found it is worth it not having the hassle of getting a pet in a carrier, dropping them off at the groomer, picking them up etc...
Overall great experience...worth the extra dough.

We have NEVER, EVER met people who love and care for our dog as much as we do until we started taking our dog to Rustic Ridge Kennels. ALL the employees there are VERY, VERY caring and loving. The kennel is very clean and affordable.

I was a big fan of Rustic Ridge in the past, they were a great low cost no frills kennel in the woods with lots of shade for my dogs. The owner was always there when we picked up and dropped off in the years 2005-2008. My dogs were always cared for and came home happy and healthy.
This year - 2010 - we had a TERRIBLE experience. The owner was no where to be found only young kids. My dog came home infested with DEER TICKS. I was in shock that this occured, because we treat her monthly with Frontline Plus as suggested by our vet. We treated her prior to taking her to Rustic Ridge. My dog had at least 35 ticks active on her body when we brought her home and she was chewing at her self so much she chewed the pads of her paws bloody because the ticks were infested in her feet. There were ticks in her eyes and ears - all over her. My dog is a completley INDOOR animal (she is only let out to use the bathroom and brought in) we bathe her routinley. I was appaled at the condition she came home in. The kennel claims they had no idea. I took the dog to the vets where they confirmed the DEER TICKS and gave us 3 weeks of medications for multiple diseases that she could have including life threating LYME Disease. The dog also spent a second day at the vets getting a harsh mitoban dip. I will have to take her back for blood test in a month.
The kennel claims they spray for ticks, they clean and powder the runs, but please note that the DEER TICKS are very tiny and can easily go un discovered. The Kennel is in a very wooded area with Deer/ wildlife and they can get into the runs and on your pet easily. I did use every precaution and my dog is VERY sick and we are out $500.00 so far and many tears. The kennel offered nothing in return!!! We paid the full bill. We pray she gets well, and LYME is not found in her or any of us. BEWARE of where you Kennel your dog.

I have used Rustic Ridge 4 times in the last year. The staff is friendly and I truly believe they take good care of my two dogs. This is a no frills kennel. No fancy play date or plush doggie beds, but clean and comfortable. However, my concern is the feeding. I pack my dogs food in individual bags and I pack just enough for their stay. I always count the bags about 5-6 to check myself. But, every time I pick up my dogs, there are extra bags of food. When I mention this to the staff, they say I must have over packed. I know I didn't over pack.

I have used Rustic Ridge Kennels for 2 dogs for 6 years and I have only good things to say about them. They have gone above and beyond in caring for my two dogs. As my dogs progressed in age and illness they gave medications and care diligently, hand feeding one of my dogs who wouldn't eat. They could not be more loving and caring. They have also stayed a few minutes late several times for me to pick up or leave off my dogs. My dogs always enjoy staying at Rustic Ridge.

We are booking our dog's fourth stay since we moved to PA a year ago. He is a pure bread and intact male German Shepherd and he comes home happy and well tended. The location is very convenient to our home. We are happy with Rustic Ridge and will continue to take our dog there.

OpinionThatMayHelpYou - you might of wanted to mention whether or not you left your phone number with the kennel or not... you cannot expect a kennel to stay 1/2 hour late.. i see 10-15 minutes.. but the 1 hour or so checking all doors didn't seem necessary.

Rustic Ridge Kennels has been a great kennel to my dogs for a number of years.. friendly service, and people who own the kennel love pets. This kennel is perfect for your dog to come and stay in a nice and warm or cool atmosphere with outdoor areas, and ample attention. I've never once had a problem with my dogs coming back with ticks & fleas and all sorts.. they have been 100% healthy after their visits, and I have always been told by the owner or the person working at the time, how well behaved & what they did on certain days... now talk about specialized attention.

I would recommend Rustic Ridge Kennels to anyone.

I live in Pittsburgh and had a surprise vacation planned for my boyfriend's birthday in Ohio. I NEVER board our dog, and spent a significant amount of time finding a kennel and hotel in Ohio with lots of special ammenities. The day of the trip, around 3:30 pm, I called the kennel and said, "I'm pushing time, I just wanted to make sure you closed at 5:00 pm." The woman replied, "We actually close at 5:30 pm to make sure the dogs are all settled in." I told her I was running late, but I was definately coming. I didn't want them to leave early. The woman was understanding and knew who I I was from previous conversations. There was crazy, unexpected traffic on our drive there. Paranoid about time, I called them again at 5:30 pm, and received their voicemail, where it said they were open till 5:30 pm, but currently closed and to leave a message. I frantically said my name and phone number, telling them I was on my way.
We arrived at 6:00 pm and there was no one around anywhere! THEY CLOSED AND DIDN'T BOTHER TO EVEN CALL ME!!!!!! THEY COULD HAVE CALLED ME AND TOLD ME NOT TO COME. Instead, my boyfriend and I spent a good half hour in the rain knocking on all the different building doors on the property, hoping to find someone. We wasted at least 1.5 hours of time trying to drop our dog off at this kennel. Then, I had to figure out what to do with my dog considering the hotel we were staying at didn't accept pets. I called our hotel and asked them about kennels near them. This town was in the middle of nowhere and I doubted any kennel would be open past 7:00 pm which was the earliest we would arrive there. The hotel ended up making an acception for us and allowed us to bring our dog.
DOESN'T RUSTIC RIDGE REALIZE THAT PEOPLE BOARD THEIR DOGS BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOWHERE ELSE TO KEEP THEM? CLEARLY THEY COULD HAVE CARED LESS ABOUT HOW CLOSING AND NOT CALLING ME WOULD AFFECT OUR VACATION. I'M BAFFLED AT THEIR RUDENESS AND DISINTEREST IN OBTAINING A NEW CLIENT.

We have been taking our dogs to kennels for the past 15 years and I have never been so shocked and appalled as I was when I saw the conditions at Rustic Ridge. I went with my sister-in-law the day she picked up her lhasa apso and was horrified when I first got out of the car and saw the kennel manager yelling "Shut the F*** Up" to a couple of dogs who were outside. The outdoor areas looked unkept and several of them were just puddles of muddy water from the rain two days before. I was not impressed with the cleanliness or the hospitality of this kennel. My sister-in-law's dog was dirty and very distressed when we picked him up and this wasn't his first time at a kennel. I want to know that when I leave my beloved pets somewhere that they will be treated well and I don't see that happening at Rustic Ridge!

I've used Rustic Ridge for over 13 years -- and my current dog, Rusty, (now 11yo) has been there too many times to count (we travel a lot!). When he sees us packing our bags, we mention "Rustic Ridge" and he jumps around and wags his tail!! They are very caring (not fancy -- ie: no TV or talks on the phone -- I'm not sure any dog really gets into that!)-- but very clean, well run, and fairly reasonable. He has never returned home ill, with "cooties", or underweight (and this is after 30+ stays). I hightly recommend this kennel -- it's Rusty's favorite "all inclusive".
