Our pup always has a great time playing with her friends whenever she stays for boarding and day care. Their grooming and bail trimming services are nice as well. She always comes home happy and wore out from all the play time

Our family loves Shagbark Pet Kennels! We all love our furry friends as much as our family members ....sometimes even more! I was very concerned about Skylar's demeanor when she was around other dogs as she can be very be very protective around me to the point that I can't take her to the dog park anymore. The first time I took her there I was a nervous wreck and I called and they reassured me that she was just fine! She is a husky/ German Shepherd mix. Jamie is one of the best assets there! Skylar cries when she sees her and I feel like I am dropping Skylar off at my best friends house! All the people there are great! The staff always does their best to accommodate my dogs needs. Skylar is now 11 and I know I have used them for most of her life. :-) Daycare is also THE BEST!! Skylar comes home so exhausted that I love that she chills out for at least a day when she arrives home! When I say to my dog.....Do you want to go to the SPA??" She knows and goes crazy!!

I bring my dog tank here once a week when I travel for work. Tank always has a great time playing with all the other dogs. The staff is super friendly and caring so I know tank is always in good hands when I’m away.

I bring my GSD Jade for playdays as well as boarding. She is so very excited upon arrival which tells me she enjoys being there. As a former employer I am very aware of the attention to detail paid by all staff members and the cleanliness of the facility. Jade’s report card is always positive and when she gets home she is one tired pup!

We love this place! We got our fur baby during covid so have yet to see the inside of the facilities but I don’t need to considering how excited our Paisley girl gets when we are pulling in! She loves it and I feel as though they genuinely love her too! We do daycare frequently and boarding...bonus is they post FB pics so we get to see her during the day. The staff is wonderful, highly recommend!

First time sending 2 of my boys there, was very pleased with the communication when they had questions. My boys seemed to have enjoyed themselves very much. I will definitely use Shagbark again.

Franzi is the trainer that I called to help me train my Akita, Yuki. She had experience dealing with difficult and protective dogs and ever since we began training last year my Yuki has gotten so much better at listening to me and accepting people in the house. Franzi’s teaching style is effective and easy to follow for those who are willing to put in the work. She’s also been great at working through these unfortunate times. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs help training their new dogs, be they rescue, adoption, or new puppy.

This was the first time we have used a lodging place for Bailey since we rescued her. The staff was friendly and when we took a tour the week prior to dropping Bailey off, we were surprised at how clean everything was. My husband and I liked to see the photos on Facebook, so that was helpful for us to see how Bailey was doing. Bailey seemed to have a good time, and we will use your services in the future. Thank you for taking good care of our furbaby! Kelli Brady

My girl always come back looking beautiful after a groom there! She's an anxious girl, but they seem to genuinely like her and like dealing with her. Highly recommend!

Shagbark is a super safe fun retreat for our two doxies jax n ralphy! They are not very social guys, but get along great at Shagbark. And they are learning much better manners on walks now. I don’t have to worry when we are away, because I know they are getting cuddles and love at Shagbark. Give them a try!

We used them for the first time last weekend to board our dogs. The staff was very knowledgeable and responsive and offered an update halfway through their stay. My pups were happy and content and enjoyed playtime during their stay.
