Great service. Our dog got in a scuffle (attacked by a dog) and had to be taken to the vet. They covered all vet bills. Considering we were out of town it was quite nerve racking but I’m glad they were professional about it.

Dear Aiden,

We’re so happy to hear that it was apparent to you how much we love and adore all the pets who visit us! We’re glad we were eventually able to reach you to reiterate our Petcare Plus Program, which reimbursed you for the veterinary costs. This program exists because we know that just as children can catch colds and viruses when they play together, so too can dogs when they are out for a walk, at the park, at a pet care facility, the veterinarian’s office and anywhere other dogs may be present. But these unexpected costs are no fun so we were glad we could help with that. We hope your pups are feeling better and we look forward to seeing you again very soon!

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!
