Editorial review from Citysearch 5/26/2013

Natures acres is great! Our dog loves the heated kennels that have their own personal dog run attached. He also really enjoys frolicking in their open play area. I would recommend Natures Acres to anyone. more

I discovered this place when I moved to 6/3/2012

I discovered this place when I moved to Portland and they were close to my house. Even after I moved 20 min. away I still kept bringing my dogs there because they treated them so well. My dogs were always well and happy when I picked them up. My dogs were diggers, but the owners and staff never showed the slightest irritation and always adapted to whatever shenanigans they committed. Only a couple of small drawbacks to this business: they don't accept credit cards, and their hours are pretty tight. I travel a lot for work and didn't always get home in time for their 6:00 pm closing, and their 9:00 am opening wasn't very convenient for morning dropoffs either. Would be nice if clients could arrange for after hours dropoff and pickup even for an extra fee. more

Great Facility 11/4/2011

GREAT PLACE!! Finally a kennel that can follow instructions. A friend recommended this kennel to me after I had a bad experience at another kennel. Am I ever thankful. I always felt bad leaving my dogs at the previous place because they were always locked up. NATURE'S ACRES is amazing. Their 3 acre wooded play park is amazing. I felt like I was in the woods going on a hike. There are well maintained paths for us humans to walk on while the dogs are running around with all their new friends. The kennels are clean and fresh smelling. Don't know how they can keep it so fresh smelling with all the dogs but they do. Our dogs stayed in what is called the wolf kennel and it is just like home with carpet on the floor and bed comforters for dog beds to sleep on. The staff seems to really care about out dogs and were very helpful (and patient) with my concerns after my last kennel experience. One of my dogs is on a very strict diet and they followed my instructions to the letter. They both came home happy and tired. They got so much more exercise then they usually do at home, that they slept for a couple of days. I recommend a bath before picking up you dogs, I did and mine smelled like strawberries. All for a VERY reasonable price. Now when I pull into the driveway of the kennel the dogs get really excited and start whining. For anyone who cares about their dog(s) like I do, this is a place you will love and can count on. more

We love Nature's Acres 3/30/2011

We moved to Portland 3 years ago and stumbled on Nature's Acres through the Phone Book. Although it was a 40 minute drive from our home, we decided to check it out due to their facility and the HUGE amount of ""free run"" space. more

Beware of Owner! 1/22/2011

We have been taking our dog(s) to Nature's Acres for many years & have always been happy with the way our dog(s) have been treated...until recently! We asked where the pregnant young lady was & was informed that she had been fired by the owner for asking too many questions & for being pregnant. (I know she is due in March.) She has for many years taken wonderful care of my animals & friends animals there as well. She loves each of them like they were her own! This time we went to pick up our dog & found her outside, alone & in the rain. She has never been treated this way in the past. We are very disappointed with Nature's Acres & will be looking for a new kennel for our dogs needs. I am also reporting them to the proper authorities because one of the men working there there was obviously intoxicated & I would not answer my questions to my satisfaction. It is unfortunate that owner is more concerned with revenue than with the animals boarded there. By the way, all the positive reviews have been written by the owners friends! Not a very fair review system! more

an amazing experience 4/19/2010

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 more

Wonderful people and setting 2/23/2010

I took my border collie to Nature's Acres a number of times and she was always treated with such great, individualized care. The people in the office obviously love dogs and show their affection to the animals in many different ways. The huge fenced acreage is fantastic. Most dogs love to get out and romp during the day, and it's nice to know that the outdoor space is so large, well-maintained and secure. My dog would come home tired and happy (and a bit spoiled). Sharon and her crew at Nature's Acres are fantastic. I wouldn't take my dog anywhere else. Pros: Lots of open space; caring staff more

my dog loves this place 2/5/2010

I've been boarding my golden here since he was a pup, almost 3 years now. He loves coming here and I've always had a good experience with the staff. I love that he gets time to play out back and you can see that they treat their animals with care. Have never had an issue and am surprised by the review below. Not my experience at all. I wholeheartedly recommend this place. Pros: room to roam and good people Cons: further out that i wished more

Don't Be Misled by the Stars!!! Beware! 1/15/2010

First off, too bad you have to leave at least 1 star because this place deserves 0 stars! Pros: nothing Cons: everything more

My Dog Loves It 4/25/2008

This is a great place for an active dog like ours. We have been going to Natures Acres for about 2 years and they have the best service. The grounds are amazing and they really take great care of all the animals there. They have an open area for the dogs to run around and for a little extra they will take your dog for a walk and give them a bath (highly recommended). We call it puppy camp, because it is like a vacation for our dog. She comes back soooooo exhausted. A comment was made on the price but I found it very reasonable for what they offer. We are extremely happy we found this place. Pros: Grounds, Service, Care for Animals more

Happy dog owner 2/5/2008

My dog didn't even miss me. I've checked many in the area and took my 6 yr old lab. She stayed for a whole week and i even called once just to make sure my girl was doing ok. She was of course and when i picked her up she almost seemed bummed to leave all her new friends. I can tell they took excellent care of her and she got a bath the last day. more

Extraordinary Service and Facility. But expensive!! 12/19/2007

The facilities are amazing. Our 2 Jack Russell Terriers were EXHAUSTED from a few days at the kennel. All that running and playing on their 10 acres was just what they (WE) needed. The staff is friendly and even bathed them for us before we picked them up. THE ONLY DRAWBACK is they are rather pricey compared to other kennels. They don't charge for 24 hours as 1 day. They charge full-price for each day. So if you drop them off on Monday at 2PM and pick them up on Tuesday at Noon... you will be charged for 2 days of service rather than less than 24 hours that it is. However, if that is what it takes to have such extraordinary care for our pets... then it's absolutely worth it. Pros: amazing staff and facility Cons: very pricey more

Definitely Recommended 7/20/2007

This is the first time that we have boarded our 4 year old black Lab mix, and we will definitely be using this kennel again, should we need to board him in the future. We found the staff at Nature's Acres to be friendly and knowledgable. We checked out his accomodations and love that he was able to spend time running around with other dogs at their very large off-leash dog park. The prices are extremely reasonable, and grooming services are offered as well. We will definitely be recommending this kennel to friends and family needing boarding for their dogs. Pros: Friendly Staff, Large Dog Park, Reasonable Prices more

best ever! 3/2/2007

I have boarded my dog many times and have always had a great experience. My dog needs extra TLC and they have sleeping quarters for their employees so they can stay with my dog at night. They go more than the extra mile. Like the previous reviewer, I completely disagree with Chris man. My dog did not get fleas (in Dec??) really, and was very well taken care of. Their rates are very reasonable-$18 a day with exercise and I mean exercise. They have 3 acres for the dogs to play in. You just can't beat this place. Pros: Best care for my dog Cons: distance- but worth it, I drive from Beaverton area more
