Cathcart >A Canine Experience
Great place to take your dogs! I wont trust my two dogs symba and mini with anyone else, one of them can be an escape artist so they board her in their secure heavy duty kennel. Have had training through them and also boarding many times, dogs are always dead tired when I pick them up and snore the whole ride home. So flexible with dropping them off it makes everything so easy plus they give a great discount and pretty much charge for one kennel for the both of them to stay together.
We are Happy.
Been with these folks a while now. They have had my senior dogs who have now passed on (at age 13 and 14) and when we got a new dog, they helped get him started right. There was never a charge with the old dogs to give them medicine or special diet, etc.
It was a shock to our family to have a new puppy after the wonderful dogs we had but the folks here helped us make the transition and took the time to educate us and teach our new dog some very good manners,
Best Dog Kennel. 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!
Great place to take your dog!. 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 highly recommend them.
Great Place for dogs. I recently used A Canine Experience for my two dogs. When I picked them up they seemed very happy. When I toured the kennel, it was clean and all the dogs seemed content. My dogs get to play with other dogs while they are there too. I took my dogs back the other day and they were very excited to see the friendly staff at A Canine Experience. I would highly recommend this kennel.
A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!. After reading the reviews I was confident I was sending my two dogs to a good kennel for boarding. My german shepherd and maltese were nervous when I dropped them off, but the staff was friendly and helpful. The environment seemed to be very pet friendly and catering to the animals. As I left I felt calmer and less worried about leaving them. But this is where it ends. On my return to pick them up, my german shepherd was exciting to see me but she wanted to leave asap! She greeted excitedly but then she went straight to the exit door to depart! The main reason why I am only giving 1 star is because of my maltese. When they returned her to me her bottom half of her body (including her hind legs) were covered in pee. This can only tell me that they left her in her kennel for a long period of time, did not take her out on her potty breaks, did not clean her kennel, but most of all I feel as if they neglected her. I've had my maltese for 15 years and never ever had this type of problem with another boarder. I have boarded her at other places and I have never received her covered in pee. My heart went out to my two dogs. I will not be sending my dogs back to A Canine Experience.
My dog couldn't be happier!.
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!
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 ':-)
My dogs love it !. 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.
They were fabulous!. 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.
