i am previous employer at natures acres so i wish to give some insight.
the faculty at natures acres act as a family. all the faculty care deeply for every dog that is brought in. when we would meet after work, our conversation always revolved around the dogs.
my co-workers and i would always find it difficult to leave work after the day was done, and would often find the dogs that needed a little more care and give them a little TLC. this is no lie.
we love the dogs to such an extent that doing the job well would often result in spending the night at work to ensure the dogs are properly cared for. but when you love your job as much as i did, it rarely actually felt like work.
we knew the dogs that came in to such an extent that we knew who to let out to run first, who didn't mix well with who, which dogs needed a closer watchful eye, and how best to feed them to ensure they got all their food instead of tipping their bowl and going hungry.
i will forever remember the unforgettable moments of my time working at natures acres. i will never be able to forget to sense of purpose these dogs brought to my life and how good it felt to be the leader of a pack.
if you have not yet tried boarding at natures acres, i strongly suggest you go and take a tour of the facility. if not only for your peace of mind that your dog will be safe, but also for your dog to get the summer camp experience.
please don't let the one angry rating worry you. of course accidents happen, after all it is a kennel full of playful pups. we are all very quick to stop a k9 confrontation, and are always very concerned for the safety of the furry member of your family :)
Pros: extensive, and personalized care. too many too list!
Cons: oregon weather :P
