We've been using Elkhound Ranch Kennels for years. Our dogs love to watch the "wildlife", which makes the in/out kennels perfect for them. When we drop them off, they don't even s...

Upon retrieving our dog from a seven day stay we found to sores on the side of his face. Apparently the kennels staff did not notice not attend to these injuries as nothing was sa...

Do not take your pets here! 11/29/2013

My family dog stayed at this kennel for a week while we were on vacation and died a couple of hours after she was picked up. She was dropped off in perfectly healthy condition and had even been playing fetch the day she was dropped off. We were given a call mid-week of her stay and were told that she was not eating. We gave the kennel tips on how to get her to eat and told them if she does not get better to contact her vet. We did not hear from the kennel until the day she was picked up. When she was picked up the dog look so incredibly sick that we could barely recognize her. The kennel neglected to call the vet when she was not getting better. We immediately took her to the vet where we were told that she was in critical condition and was in kidney failure from being so dehydrated. She lived a matter of hours and then past away. My family was very upset that we didn't have a chance to get the dog the care that she needed. Our dog had no previous health conditions and this came as shock. Chances are very high that the dog would have lived if she was given the proper care. Our dog had stayed at this kennel previously when it was under different ownership and she was perfectly fine which made us feel comfortable leaving her again. Under the new ownership our dog was neglected to the point that she passed away. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND LEAVING YOUR PET AT THIS KENNEL. These people do not care about your pets and do not have the competence to run a kennel properly. Please do not make the same mistake we did. more

I would recommend Elkhound for training, boarding, or just a place to take your dog for the day 8/8/2011

While my home was being remodeled I thought it wold be perfect time tot put my Doberman in a training program. Some commands he already had down pat, others he would do only when it suited him. He would take me for a walk not vice versa. Now I can say he is so well behaved and obey all basic commands when told. I feel comfortable walking him anywhere without worrying about distractions. Best of all I will now be able to take him to doggie daycare once a week to socialize with other dogs. The staff are friendly and professional. you could tell they really give your pet lots of attention. They worked with me on a flexable schedule at the last minute which was a great help to me and I appreciated it very much. I would recommend Elkhound for training, boarding, or just a place to take your dog for the day if you need to. more

I love the fact that the employees are so friendly and caring 7/28/2011

I felt it went well 7/25/2011

They cared for our cat and dog over a period of 9 days. Including walking the dog and allowing her time out in a yard. I felt it went well. Both cat and dog appeared healthy and well cared for. The dog had been bathed before coming home, too, which was a plus for worn-out travelers who had a lot of other things to do. more

They cared 7/22/2011

When we called about our agining Greyhound, who could not be boarded by our regular vet any longer, the Elkhound staff person assured me of everything they would do for an elderly dog to make his visit as nice as possible. I really appreciated the time she took to explain everything to me. As it turned out, our dog did not live long enough to be boarded there again, but knowing that they cared enough to put my mind at ease is worth a great deal. more

Love what they do 7/20/2011

Elkhound is the best - Our dogs seem happy to go inside and facily is clean and spacious. Such a great outside yard and wonderful service. We always see dogs outside playing, which is certainly a nicer image to take on vacation than that of our dogs in cages. What really keeps us coming back is the terrific attitude of everyone there. You can tell they love what they do and they take care of your pets as if they were their own. And it doesn't cost more than our standard vet boarding rates! more

Great trainer 7/18/2011

Trained my 5 month old puppy. My puppy stayed at the kennel for two weeks for obedience training and house training. My little dog came back a new puppy. He is obedient, he has not had an accident in the house since returning home. I used another trainer that came to my house that had a different approach to dog training, after spending over 500.00, my dog was still totally out-of-control. The only place to get results is Elkhound Kennel. This is the second dog I have sent there and have received great results. David is a great trainer. more

He was happy when we picked him up and very clean 7/13/2011

Thanks for the great service 7/11/2011

Wilbur (my Great Dane) always has such a great time playing with the other dogs. Now, that he is 6 years old his time at Elkhound makes him sleep for at least 2 days. Thanks for the great service. more
