I've left my dog at this kennel before for only a short period of a few days and he came back fine. He even tried to run back in when we picked him up! When we picked him up this time..it was a COMPLERELT different story. My husband brought our dog home and immediately after letting him out of the car..he noticed two, about 3 inch wounds by his knees. He showed me the wounds and I was appalled! We had called on our 3rd day gone and was told he was perfectly fine! We were at ease and picked him up 3 days later...a longer stay than his previous. I examined the wounds and they appeared have been red, chaffed, no hair, and starting to scab over! I immediately called the kennel where both parties I spoke tosaid they were unaware of how the wounds happened...even the bather who bathed him an hour before we picked him up! I was very confised as to how he, if not anyone else, did not see the wounds, and would send our ""baby"" home like that! After about an hour of stewing, the bather called me back and told me that our dog was a jumper in his cage, and the wounds were possibly from him rubbing against the cage. Well, that would be an acceptable explanation, but no one noticed these wounds? If they had begun to scab over..were no longer bleeding...they HAD to have been there for a day or more. He told me the vet would pick up the visit bill, but, I know if he was treated I would have to pay the cost. Although apologetic for what happened, I am in disbelief that no one noticed our poor dogs legs getting to beat up over the course of the week. Needless to say, we will be taking him to another kennel, where if he continues to be a ""jumper""...someone will at least be aware of the pets they are boarding.
