Cage free daycare. I love to see my dogs to play with other dogs freely. Price is reasonable. We have sent our dogs there from time to time for over 3 years. Wish they could have discount or pass packages for boarding.

If you are looking for a safe healthy environment to board your fuzzy, I highly recommend this location. My fuzzy always acts wild and crazy when on a leash. I took him here for a few days and he completely loved being with a pack of dogs. The staff made us feel super safe about having him their and catered to our peculiar needs for our fuzzy.

This place is fantastic. We recently got a puppy who has a lot of energy who loves coming here. She gets to play all day with many dogs. The staff is amazing and so accommodating to our dogs needs. They always have time for last minute baths and nails. The are extremely friendly and my dog loves them. They are relatively cheap compared to other places and offer many different packages. I wouldn't trust anyone else to care for my dog. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a place for their dog to make friends and release energy.

I use to bring my dog there. One day the owner standing outside had a ladder in front of the door. I was spoken to like a child on where to stand and how to walk in the door. Despite the fact she treated a 40 year old woman like I was six and would knock her ladder over walking 2 feet I proceeded in the door the way I was told. I asked to see the cameras on of the dogs in back beforeleavingmy dog.. It was the feature that made me choose their facility. She literally told me no. I asked why not? She said I am the owner and then waited a few seconds and said I no longer want your dog back here. She made a split second decision to ban my little 13lb Schitzu from coming back. An owner with a moody attitude on a power trip is not professional.Good luck if you want to take the risk of the owner having a good day or bad. Scary to think how else this spiteful power trip behavior could be towards any dogs.

I called last minute and they were able to get my 2 boxers in quickly. Great job on grooming and my dogs were at ease immediately with them, which does not always happen. I am impressed and will be using them regularly. Pricing is very reasonable.

My dog loves it! He doesn't even look back to say good bye, and tugs on his lead all the way into the building. It's clean, well maintained, excellent groomer, good price.

I used to bring my dog here every day. Three weeks ago he was bitten in the neck (right next to the jugular) and needed to be rushed to the vet for staples. I later returned to Free Spirit to find out what happened. Based on the surveillance video, it could have been one of two dogs: a pit bull or a husky. Both dogs are significantly larger than mine and the husky was being noticeably aggressive towards other dogs. So aggressive that an employee was struggling to keep it restrained. The husky broke free and that's when my dog was bitten. (I was later told by an employee that the husky doesn't get along with other dogs. So why is she allowed?!) I asked what the repercussions were for the dogs who almost killed mine and there were none!! Both dogs finished out the day and were welcomed back without suspension or consequence. When I confronted the manager about it, she was unconcerned, unapologetic, and said they didn't have an aggressive dog policy. We're never bringing our dog back there because they CANNOT keep dogs safe and refuse to hold aggressive dogs accountable.

Fun place for a lot of dogs to hang out at their large dog room (indoor), my dog loves to go here. Staff are very knowledgeable and stay right in the middle of the dogs, monitoring everything. I love staring at the TV screen watching my dog live, playing with his friends
