When we called our usual boarding facility that we been with them for 8 years and got a respond that they don't have a spot for us, we got nervous..Our flight was leaving next am and we started search for a new place for Scout. We found "Ivy League Kennel" online and called them. Sharon was very nice and they has a spot. Our dog is 10 years old with arthritis and stomach issues and she understood right away what kind care he needs and said she don't keep the dogs in the crates. We was surprised. We left Scout for 5 days with her and was shocked when we picked him up! He was shining and smelling good, nails done (they do this to every dog for free!) and he was happy happy happy! He actually walked better too! He never was so happy before when we was leaving him at the previous kennel!We brought him month later for another 4 day stay and Scout literally jumped out the car and ran to the door! That's said a lot to us! The dog told us how happy he to be back! We will never board him in any other places for shure! And off course, again, he was full bathed and nails and ears done!!
I have used Sharon, the owner of Ivy League Kennel, for several months now for training, boarding, and dog day camp. I cannot begin to tell you how competent, compassionate and professional Sharon is when it comes to animals. Sharon not only helps with your dog, but helps train you as an owner of the dog to get the best results from your dog. Sharon goes above and beyond to help make you and your dog comfortable with every service she provides, even giving updates and answering questions when needed. I have used other services around town, and none even close to the level Sharon provides, hands down she is top notch with dog care and training. I found Sharon after not being happy with another kennel experience, so I was more afraid of kenneling than my puppy Findlay was, but Sharon did everything in her power to make me feel comfortable being away from my dog and letting me know he was happy and doing fine while I was gone, giving me the peace of mind I never had with other places I used. I can say without question, that Sharon has provided my family and my dog, valuable and unbeatable results from where we were before we met her. I recommend Sharon to anyone looking to see improvement in their dog, or looking for a great kenneling experience, as you will not be disappointed. You will be hard pressed to find someone like Sharon that will love and care for your dog as well as she will, and treat your animal as if they were her own. She is fantastic at what she does!!!
