I was in a jam and had to find someplace to keep our dachshund for a week while on vacation. ABK was the only place I could find. People have told me they have boarded their dog before and it was ok so I thought I'd try it. What a huge mistake! When we got there, my son was already sad because we had to leave our dog in the first place, so after we start giving all our info, some girl comes out and is trying to throw some kind of leash on the dog and not doing a very good job. So my son say's he'll help her and walk the dog back for her and the girl just grabbed the dog leash from him and started dragging the dog with her. My son ran out the doors bawling his eyes out and embarrassed to let anyone see him crying. I tried to comfort him and tell him it would be alright and that they'd take good care of her for us. Well, they didn't. We got back into town a week later and went straight to pick her up. When we got there, and they brought the dog up, she was crunched up and timid and weary. We could see immediately that she had lost weight. They charged me an arm and a leg and like an idiot, I paid them and left...my son already had the dog and was out in the car with her...on our way home, well the minute I got into the car I could smell the dog...she smelled like dog feces, and had it all over her feet. Dried and crusted all over all of her paws. Then my son noticed a big chunk of skin had been ripped off her nose and it was red and open yet. Also, he noticed a large lump on the side of her ribs. I'm assuming some other dog hurt her or someone hit or kicked her pretty hard because it was rather large. It went away about 3 day's later, but she was very tender in that area. My son and I wouldn't board our dog there again if someone else paid for it. I was not impressed by a single thing at this boarding kennel. The entire experience left a bad taste in my mouth. I wonder what the dog would say if she could speak? No, I know exactly what she'd say. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy or anyone who cares about their animal even just a little. This place is in it for the money. They could give 2 craps less about your dog.
