A week long retreat cost me $1000 for 2 dogs. My dogs appeared to have had a great time and the staff legit seemed to love animals. The facility is nice and cozy, I liked the fact that they have web cams up so you can check in on the 4 …

Response from business owner

Thank you Ellen! It was a pleasure to meet both you and Delilah!! <3 We love having Delilah as part of our daycare group at Dogwood Acres! You’re right, we take our trial days very seriously to ensure the safety and enjoyment of each dog. We’re glad to hear that you like the webcams! That’s our way of being as transparent about everything we do…and we also know it’s fun to watch! We love that you acknowledge the importance of the quiet time some dogs take for themselves, which is very healthy for them. Dogs naturally have bursts of energy and then take breaks, which is why you may see some dogs stretching out and soaking up the sun from time to time. As you know, just wait, because they’ll be back up again in no time!

Thank you Stephanie! Dogs really do love our outside play yards and our amazing staff! We conduct assessments for each pet before they play with other dogs, which allows us to separate play groups based on the size, age, temperament and play style of each dog. This is a very important part of keeping dogs safe and happy, which is our top priority! Thanks again for sharing your thoughts with others!

Response from business owner

Janelle, I know we have spoken at length but I try to respond to all reviews as well. As you know, we are all animal lovers here and while it is very rare, if a dog is ever injured in our care, it is not taken lightly but has an impact on all who work here. We strive to learn from every situation, regardless of how large or how small. In the end, as you experienced, we stand behind the promise we make to our clients, which is to provide a safe and wonderful experience for the pets who are entrusted to us. We are so happy that you continue to trust us to take care of Bosco and Jessie.
