Not-So-Lucky Dog 10/11/2007

Lucky Dog is a dog care and dog wash facility which I would avoid. The business has a typical small dog day care/ dog wash facility has been sold at least once that I know of. My dog has gone there for several years, and for the most part they have done a good job both when I've gone for washes and used them for boarding. The bad news is that they are not dependable and have had some difficulties maintaining a facility which is clean and safe for our canine brethren. In July of 2007 about 8 months after they were sold to the current owner/operator, they had a problem with a dog (or dogs?) which gave many of the other dogs staying there "Kennel Cough." The owners/ employees were forthright in discussing this with patrons, however, the operations of the company started going South at this point. The management began complete overkill with "health issues." It got to the point of complete absurdity very quickly, with the management asking a long laundry list of new "tests" and requirements for dogs to stay there. The lousy part was that they changed the rules by the week, asking for "fico float tests" and "immunizations current down to the day." That's all well and good, and better for the dog owners that drop the dogs off there. The terrible part in the management execution of the new 'stepped up' health measures is that if you have an appointment to leave your dog there for the day or night, or for a bath, they turn you away at the door for something new every time you show up. Long story short--I have discussed this issue with other patrons and with two local vets and the consensus is that the management of Luck Dog doesn't know enough about dog health to have any idea of what they should & shouldn't be asking for. Both local veterinarians stressed that a dog facility was overdoing it and panicking if a fico float test was a requirement. For a dog that clearly does not have "worms" (that is what the test is for), both vets stressed that this was being driven by fear rather than necessity. If you are looking for a dependable facility for dog day care, dog wash or dog boarding, this is not the facility for you. more
