Neurotic pet owners are always going to be threatened by people who know a thing or two about husbanding animals. The Carletons know animals and that's all I need to know.
I have been taking my two precious spoiled-rotten dogs to Kennel Nirvana for frequent, long stays for about 6 years now. I'll be darned if the little darlings don't come home totally and refreshingly in-touch with their inner Dogness.
They are always happy, healthy, and restored to a life of living on four legs, sniffing around in the breeze, and rolling in the dirt; as opposed to pestering me for attention, treats, and pampering.
In fact, my dog's demeanor after a stay at Kennel Nirvana always leaves me amazed and a little ashamed at how I project my very human frailties and fears onto my sturdy and lively little dogs.
I will never take my dogs to anyone else, and my dogs would probably not return to me in half as natural and pleasant a state if they were kenneled anywhere else.
I trust experience, but I listen carefully when I conduct my business; there are expectations and obligations on both sides of a pet-kenneling deal, and never once has the staff of Kennel Nirvana disappointed me, or surprised me with an unanticipated charge.
My bottom line, if you want a secure environment with plenty of outdoor time for your pets; and supervision by folks who can read an animal from the perspective of experience and wisdom, and not guilt or neurosis, there is no better place for your pets than Kennel Nirvana.
