Bayside Animal Lodge is a wonderful, warm, welcoming, safe & fun place to leave your pets. I have tried all the other kennels in the Gig Harbor area and Bayside Animal Lodge is the best, by far..... Robert & his staff have created a terrific environment for their 'guests' that include walks & play times. Robert knows each dog by name & provides a 'report card' of their stay with him. Their groomers are great, too. My dogs return home after a stay at Bayside Animal Lodge relaxed & not all stressed out. We wouldn't go anywhere else.
