Good EnvironmentMy dog loved it here. I was not so happy. Kelly is not willing to bend her strict rules and will charge you if you are slightly late. She is a good trainer and LOVES the dogs. She screens very meticulously and I never feared for my dog's safety. HOwever, there were several occasions when I would have appreciated some flexibility in schedule and would have continued to go if she had been a little more accomodating.
Kelly's MillitaryTraining CampIf you think that your dog is going to get "trained" here while attending doggy day care, think again. The staff (consisting of like 3 people including Kelly) are not "authorized" to [get this] TOUCH, PLAY, TALK OR TRAIN THE DOGS. What!? You ask? Go ahead, ask them. They will tell you just that. Yes, I did say "touch". They do not pet your dog, it's not part of Kelly's training protocol, unless you PAY her for this, of course.
Best Doggy DaycareKelly has rules, as do all good businesses, and the dogs benefit from this. Dogs that are boarding are waiting for their dinner, as are the dogs that will go home. Picking up your dog on time really helps maintain the zen like atmosphere at Kelly's. The dog caregivers do not use food, treats, or toys because those items can cause tension among dogs.
Great TrainingMy dog, George, has been going to Kelly's since he was 4 months old for training, eventually some boarding and almost daily for daycare. Due to my schedule, when he was 14 months old he had not been to Kelly's for two weeks when I made him a reservation for boarding. I went a day ahead to pre-pay and one of the staff handed me the boarding form to complete and return when I dropped George off for his vacation. That night at 10 pm I got out the form and George got up to see what I was doing. He smelled the edge of the form and started wagging his tail and looking at me intently. I acknowledged it was from Kelly's and he ran to the front door. For the next hour he methodically would nose the form and run to the door, sit, stare at me (demonstraighting he can focus), lie down, sit up, spin right spin left, run his imaginary obstacle course, just some of the things he has learned at Kelly's trying to impress me so his reward would be a trip to Kelly's. I told him he would go tomorrow- which of course he did not understand. Finally, I had to say 'No Kelly's', which hurt us both deeply. lol So here is proof that a dog has a great sense of smell, does not know what time it is, and LOVES Kelly's.
Simply the Best!My 4-month-old lab puppy had been using our 3-year-old lab as his personal chew toy from the day we brought him home. Everyone said to let it take its course. But after 2 months, it didn?t stop. I enrolled my puppy in a weekly training course (not Kelly's), and at the end of the first class I asked that trainer what I should do. I was amazed at her reply, "Send him to Kelly's for daycare." She explained that not only would our puppy get a lot of his energy out, but that Kelly's was unlike any other daycare in town. Dogs are placed in groups based on their size and needs, and supervised by a trainer. She said if my puppy learned to properly interact with other dogs, he would stop chewing on our other dog at home.
great place for your dog!!!I found Kelly's Doggie Daycare online and after my own research and speaking with Kelly, the owner, I decided to check it out for my dog, Coco. Well, I was impressed by the professionalism and the knowledge Kelly has, as she is a dog trainer as well, and loved touring the facility. Coco was evaluated (and I think I was too! lol) and we both passed with flying colors. It has now been nearly 6 months and I am thrilled with my dog's interaction with the other dogs and attention she gets! My dog LOVES going there and she even understands when I tell her she's going. I have also boarded Coco there on a few occasions and I trust Kelly and her staff without hesitation which is evidenced everytime I pick up Coco. She is so happy to be there and sometimes doesn't want to leave. What a great feeling! I want to say thank you to Kelly and Jamie and Ryan for their hard work and I appreciate all you do for all the dogs and all of us dog owners! Thank you again!
