We have been boarding our dog at A Canine Experience for about 8 years. They really care about each dog and even provide individualized training if requested. They do a great job and we would not board our dog anywhere else!

I have two dogs and they love it here. The staff is very friendly, the kennel is clean. I am taking the basic obedience class with my younger lab and he is doing well. Trina is very helpful and has taught me a lot. It is so nice to have a place to leave my dogs.

Great place, located right on Highway 9. Ran by Nancy Bear and her family. They treat our dog as one of their own. Very reasonably priced for daycare. Our dog sleeps for 2 days straight after attending the day care two days a week. We

This has been the best kennel I have boarded at yet. Everytime I've called, the employees might or might not remember my name, but as soon as I say my dog's name, they know who I am. He starts wagging his tail as soon as we pull in to the parking lot, let alone the office!

He gets to excited to see the people working, and he never looks back at me when I leave, he's so preoccupied with them. Everytime I've picked him up, he acts very excited to see me, I have left him for up to two weeks before and when I got him back, he smelled good, he looked good, his weight wasn't any different then when I left - and while he was very much excited to see me, he would run back and forth between me and the girl who brought him out to me.

Definately a place I would recommend, they truely treat the dogs as their own. Even though plenty of kennels boast that, this is the first that I've seen my dog genuinly attached to the employees.

Keep up the good work!

Pros: My dog LOVES the employees, they always have room for him!

Cons: None that I can think of!

Wow. I agree with all the excellent recommendations. My dog gets excited going there, too. I had training done and not only was my dog well treated, the trainer was wonderful with my children (two-legged variety). I can't imagine a better place to leave my dog-and now my cat, too. I really like the cat rooms!
When I was doing my lesson, a dog was going home that had been there a whole month-she was very excited to see her people but she kept going back to the staff to say good-bye. Almost as if she was saying "I really like you guys. This is my family but I will miss you." The folks couldn't stop raving about the care. The staff even emailed pictures of the dog playing in the park to the owners while they were on vacation-Talk about Customer Service!! It made me feel good to hear their comments. Apparently their dog has been going there for years. I liked what I expereinced but the confirmation of another's opinion is great! I don't know about what those negative reviews are talking about-maybe they got the wrong place My dog was clean and very, very happy when I picked him up. I have never had any problems at all- Some people, huh? I just know that my dog and my entire family have been very satisfied. Come to think of it, my neighbors are happy too because my dog is behaving way better. In fact they asked what happened to our 'old dog' and where did we get the 'new' one. Cute, huh? And the training was very clear with an emphasis on praise/rewards. What did they say? Something like everyone likes a paycheck. It really made sense. Hey, I would not go to work every day with out one. I can't say enough about how much I liked my 'Canine Experience ':-)

Pros: Family Friendly, Smallish, Knowledgable, Caring

Cons: Have to book ahead-but I am learning to plan ahead!

My dogs love it at A Canine Experience. They get to go to daycare and play with other dogs while in for boarding. They have a huge fenced park for the dogs. You can tell everyone there loves all the dogs. The staff is very knowledgeable and has given me some great training tips. They accomadate my specific needs (feeding a raw food diet). I will never take my dogs any where else.

Cons: none

First off I want to say this place is so nice, my dog starts barking as soon as we pull into the parking lot! She greets the staff with her back end just wagging side to side! Yes, back end, not tail, she's an aussie shepherd. They have a really cool dog park, it's completly fenced in so I don't have to worry about my dog getting out and getting into a place that I can't catch her. When I go just for the dog park, it's just me out there, I don't have to worry about sharing the park with any other dogs or people, so no worries about aggressive dogs. When I leave her for boarding I don't feel guilty leaving her, I drop her off happy as a clam, and I pick her up happy but tired, and she usually spends the next day sleeping. Their trainers are great, they have an amazing amount of patience with the dogs and you can tell the dogs are well taken care of.

I brought my dog to A Canine Experiance, and at first she was a lil timid thinking it was a vet but they employees there were really welcoming and came up to her very nicely and started offering her treats and she hesitily would take them she was able to use there four acre park and run and play with other dogs along with getting some obedience training and when i came back she was a happy dog and now she loves everyone and she a completely new dog it has helped so much i can take her on walks with out her hiding away and triping me along the way, she proudly walks by myside and wants to greet everyone and every dog to. Now when I bring her as soon as we pull on to the road she is wagging her tail and barking with excitment and happy to see everyone there and they all love her and welcome her very well. I greatly recommend this place for all your dog needs they are amazing and very welcoming and they seem to treat my dog as if it was one of there own and sure they will to yours to!!!!!

I just recently left my dog for two weeks of training. It was the best thing I could have done for my dog. My dog learned so much, I couldn't believe the transformation. The trainers were very professional and did a wonderful job teaching me and my family. I am so happy with my dog. She is now a great family dog. I look forward to working with A Canine Experience in the future.

We brought our dog to this boarding place to stay for a week, and when we picked her up, my dog looked quite scared and seemed to be cold and shaking. Then I asked for the dog bed we brought, and when it was brought out, it was sopping wet with both water and urine! The lady didn't say much about it just said, "Oh, she must have had an accident", and just gave me a garbage bag for the stinky, wet bed. My dog doesn't urinate in her own bed unless she was very scared! I had a feeling that the bed was wet because they just put it on a cold, wet floor that was hosed out. I was so upset, I didn't know what to say. Needless to say, I will never subject my dog to this experience again!

My dog had stayed many times at Cascade Kennels and Pets Mart, never had a problem and was always deliriously happy at drop-off and pick-up. Stay away!

My dogs love it there! When we turn onto their road, my dogs can hardly contain themselves!
I used to feel really guilty leaving my dogs and I would worry when I was gone. Now when they are so happy to see the people at A Canine Experience I feel good leaving them. The people know my dogs and know what they like (ok, my dogs are a little spoiled).
The last time I was on vacation, my out of control dog learned some manners that he so desperately needed. My life is so busy, I just didn't have time to work with him at home consistently. When I picked him up, I had a private lesson. When Jake walked in, he was not even pulling on the leash and he sat politely while I petted him! I felt awkward giving him the new commands and making him behave but my instructor was very patient and taught me what I needed to do. Jake is a new man! And I feel more comfortable taking him out for walks now and when my friends come over, they don' t complain about him anymore.
I am working with my other dog, too. She is doing better, too. Maybe its because I know what to do now.
