Excellent Service! 8/24/2011

Excellent Service! I have been going here for years now. My dog loves the atmosphere and always comes home in a good mood. Where other dog walkers/groomers treat their ""clients"" just as a meal ticket, Johnny and Ty truly take an interest in knowing and caring for the the dogs in their care. I recommend them to everyone who cares about their pet. You really get your money?s worth on the dog walking and overnight stays. I have used other kennels prior and it takes my dog a week to forgive me when I get back to town. With Johnny and Ty she doesn't want to come home!! I highly recommend them!!! more

Great option for your dog 7/8/2010

I have been using ""the Loved Dog"" for day care as well as boarding for the past 8 years and have been consistently impressed with their level of care and service. The best testimonial however comes from my dog, whose entire body begins to wag when we approach the building and who always drags me inside and runs to greet his friends, both human and canine, without even a look back. I can't recommend it enough! Pros: friendly, responsible staff whom my dog loves more

Great place for you pet 12/14/2009

I took my little dog here for a short trip and was very satisfied when I returned. The dogs were all being walked and played with and the facility was clean. It looks like a new GM is there and I noticed a difference. I will be back. Pros: Great facility & staff. more

Response to Feedback 12/1/2009

Please allow me to address some of the concerns I have read and thank those who have taken the time to give us positive reviews. Pros: Amazing, caring staff, great customer service Cons: Facility improvements were needed more

clearing things up 10/17/2009

Im a current employee that has been around a while and im pretty shocked at the reviews that this place has gotten from clients. Ive decided to clear up some things for people that have had a ""bad"" experience at this establishment. Ive read most of the reviews and thought i could easily clear up some problems people have had/still have. First ill discuss a big problem most have which is the smell, dogs are dogs they play with eachother, they get all slobbered up and dirty. They dont come here to sit and look pretty they come to play their little hearts out and have fun no matter where you take your dog wether it be another kennel/daycare or dog park its going to get a little stinky. We offer baths and we baby whipe them before they leave to go home. As far as peoples problems with employees i understand that we might have hired a few bad apples but thats why they arent around any longer. Everyone that i have worked with has had a huge obsession and love for dogs and treat every dog like its their own. This next problem is a strange on someone was complaining about the dogs barking. That to me is pretty ignorant to be honest. They come to let loose and have fun dogs will bark when their happy they bark to communicate and bark just to bark. They get it all out of their system here and absolutly love it. Pricing is standard to all the doggie daycares around the area. And as far as dogs getting sick its very rare and it happens just like sending your kid to a daycare the chances are just the same. Kennel cough, giradia, and warts are all things that happen but when they do we take immediate action to contain that dog and get in contact with the owner and discuss options to have them pick it up or to have us take it to the vet. We use mops with diluted bleach water to sanitize the floor, we also use pinesol to help with sanitizing and polishing up the floor, we wipe down everything in this building including the walls to yes even the ceiling. We use air freshener with a bacteria killing agent thats safe and also we peridically spray the most used places/objects such as cabanas and kennels with chlorox disinfectant spray after wiping it down with a warm rag and pinesol. We take every step we can to make sure that your dog stays healthy and safe because we miss your dog when its not here just as much as you miss your dog when you're on vacation. So please if you have had problems before or now just let us know and well fix it or explain thing to you just please dont automatically assume things are wrong and discredit our name. I did this out of the kindness of my heart and for the love of all the dogs i have worked with and am looking forward to working with not because anyone told me. Thank you so much for reading this and take all of what i said into consideration. Pros: dog loving employees, clean, knowledgeable more

Disappointing Experience 8/7/2009

After receiving a recommendation from a fellow dog-owner in my neighborhood, I brought my 14-pound Tibetan Terrier in for a screening. All seemed to go well, although I had some reservations on the small attic-like space on the second floor where the small and shy dogs stay. It seemed hot and small, but they assured me it looked that way because half was closed off for cleaning. They assured me they had A/C and turned it on when needed. Pros: Good location; staff was nice Cons: Small, poorly ventilated building more

My dogs are ""happy campers""! 7/10/2009

I was looking up something and came across this page and was horrified by how nasty some people are. Pros: Staff loves the dogs and are very courteous more

If I were a dog, I would want to hang out here!!! 10/20/2008

My son, Jack and I, happened upon this canine gem last spring. He was needing community service hours for his school. We met the manager, and many of the employees there. We went there for three days, during different times of the day. Each time, we saw happy dogs, and happy workers. We loved it there. I spoke to the receptionist each time I was there as my son vanished upstairs to care for the smaller dogs. They knew all of the dogs by name, knew what they liked and I saw for myself through the window, many dogs happily playing whilst caregivers doled out the love and praise. These dogs are loved. I have two dogs myself, and assure you that when I go on vacation, it's the loved dog for them. This place is spotless. No sooner did a dog eliminate, then it was cleaned up. The staff to dog ratio was quite impressive. Plus, they groom dogs, they sell great dog food (that my dogs devoured),and the space is huge. There is ample room for dogs to be dogs, and run and play. I was and am very impressed with the facility, and the staff. Way to go, The Loved Dog. Pros: see my comments Cons: not one more

...seriously? 7/10/2008

I used to work at TLD and left a few months ago for personal reasons. more

Avoid altogether. 7/2/2008

This is a terrible place for a dog. It is such an awful dump that it was hard to believe anyone would leave their dog here. I expected so much more than what they offer (which is basically nothing but a big room that they throw your dog in.) It was difficult to imagine how my dog would enjoy this or how any dog would enjoy this. It's a joke really. more

Great place, wonderful people, my dog LOVES it! 5/17/2008

Boy, I don't usually write or review, but after reading some of the negative remarks about The Loved Dog, I had to. Sounds like some fired ex-employee has a HUGE grudge. more

Definitely Recommend Loved Dog 5/16/2008

I have to say I was a bit taken aback by some of the scathing reviews. This has not in any way been my experience. Yes....dog daycares smell, but I have been to a few and they're pretty much the same. My experience with the staff has been great. They greet my dog with excitement and truly seem to love the dogs. I have found the manager to be very knowledgeable about dog behavior and she has on more than one occasion taken time to give me helpful advice on positive dog training. Some of the reviews are so vitriolic ( ie: referring to a staff member as overweight, referring to someone's ethnicity?) that I can't help but wonder what the motive is behind them. Anyway...me and my fur kid love the loved dog!!! Pros: Knowledgeable and caring staff Cons: Building does have some deferred maintenance more

Lame 5/7/2008

Not a place for your best friend unless you care as little as they do. Not at all what I expected. Owners should be ashamed. more

Leave your dog at home 4/28/2008

This was a bad experience for me and my dog. The staff I dealt with was rude and seemed very inexperienced although some do appear to like the dogs. I saw some staff interacting with them. more

WE LOVE!!! love !! The Loved Dog 4/25/2008

I've leaving both of my dogs at the Loved Dog for about 2 years now and never had a problem. As a matter fact my small dog always gets stressed on car drives but when I tell her that we are going to the ""Dog Park"" or ""Day Care"" she stops shaking and panting. She gets excited when we arrive at daycare as well as the park. If the Loved Dog were as bad as some of these people say I know for a fact my dog would not resond this way. Pros: Tuumbs up!!!!! Cons: my dog just love it more

Response to No1doglover review 4/23/2008

Can we say bitter old employee )-: Pros: Friendly staff Cons: closed on sunday more

Lets Be Real 4/23/2008

After reading the poor reviews I just had say something in defense of the Loved Dog. Some of the reviews complain about a screening fee but all daycares charge a screening fee. Some complained about their dog smelling after day care but dogs get dirty from playing in daycare or the dog park. And they cost just as much as the other daycares in the area. Pros: boarding has a dog handler to sleep with the dogs Cons: no day care on sunday more

I Love the Loved Dog 4/21/2008

I have taken both of my dogs here before on several different occasions and had wonderful experiences. Pros: friendly & helpful staff more

Don't know what these folks are talking about... 4/21/2008

I read the previous reviews and I found them to be absolutely false. I had my dog stay at two day cares in the same area and I found The Loved Dog to be much much better. Dogs are never unattended which was a huge factor for me. The other two day cares left the dogs unsupervised...I guess some folks are okay with that...weird. Pros: Great hours Cons: No day care on sunday more

the unloved dog 4/15/2008

i decided to give the loved dog a try at the suggestion of a friend who used to bring her dog there but i have to say that i was not at all impressed. i looked through the filthy window that they have in their ""lobby"" and saw two of the workers playing with the dogs but apparently oblivious to the large puddle of urine that was left on the floor. i was told that i could not see the upstairs for ""insurance reasons"" by an incredibly rude overweight brunette whose name escapes me. when i picked my dog up later, a blonde girl had been nice enough to baby wipe her for me, but she still reaked of urine and needed to a bath BADLY. i have never brought her back and i never plan to. Pros: most of the staff appears to care about your dog Cons: your dog will come home smelling terrible, the manager is super rude, it's expensive more
