If I could, I would give it no stars, but that's not an option. Its great in the fact it has an indoor swimming pool&self-wash area, but I feel its not enough to convince people to come here for boarding&daycare. There is no capacity

There are a few things you might want to ask the employees about before you leave your dogs here. These are just a few things I noticed about this place, that make me want to say" don't bring your dogs here unless they are A- puppies needing to be socialized, or B- have EXTREME separation anxiety."

-They allow people aggressive dogs in, and have a few regulars who are dog aggressive.

-They do not inform you if your dog is misbehaving to a point where he/she is spending hours in a dark empty room by themselves. While they accept your money for your dogs time there.

-They allow possessive dogs into there open swim, who have on many occasions nearly drown other dogs.

-They keep dogs separated into four groups for most of the day, and two of those groups are not supplied with a water bowl.

-They do not tell you if your dog does not enjoy there services i.e spends the entire (expensive) visit shivering in the corner.

-They do not supply boarding dogs with water through the nights, unless you ask them to.I was told because it is too hard to clean up if they are to spill.

-They use bleach to clean up the dogs pee inside. Bleach and pee together makes a TOXIC GAS!!

-They do not allow you to brush out the bath dogs unless the owners pay an extra fee. I have been a bather/brusher for the last three years, and if you do not brush a long haired dog before a bath not only are you unable to get the dog clean, you cause matting, which in turn can cause skin issues.

-They do not allow the employees to use the disinfectant that kills kennel cough in the kennel area.Even after they had a break out of kennel cough.

-They expect all dogs to be bathed and dried in an hour. This is impossible if you are bathing a newfoundland, which isn't unusual for them.For what they charge, you should be leaving with a clean dog.

-They have way too many dogs in a small area.

-They do not allow their employees to play with your dogs.

-The employees are not allowed to tell you if your dog was acting sick, or unusual, if there is another customer in the lobby. For fear that they might be concerned for their dog, and hurt the business.

-They ask employees to sugar coat the truth when you ask how your dog was that day.Even if your dog was involved in an fight you might only get " She did great : ) she played really hard. "

-Most dogs get bored of being there within the first hour. They separate the dogs that want to play together most of the time, because then the other dogs join in, and it might cause a fight.. I can appreciate there concern, but you would probably get more out of your money if you paid someone to take your dog to the park for an hour a day.

-The dogs that go there to swim spend the first four hours they are there whining by the door. They love the half an hour of swim time they get..Then they spend the next few hours laying down..

I am an angry former employee.. Yes.. But that doesn't make any of this less true.. I quit not only for these reasons,but they also treat their employees with very little respect.

Every time I tell my dog we're going to BowWow, he jumps up to find his leash and heads for the door!

He plays all day and is exhausted when he gets home. They take wonderful care of him and we couldn't be more pleased.

(He also loves the homemade cookie he gets as he's leaving!)
