Absolutely FABULOUS experience for me and my fur child Louie Armstrong:) This was a "first" visit, but certainly will not be the last. Excellent service with staff, but exceptional grooming and adorable haircut for my Cavalier/Cocker Mix.

We are very happy with the groomers and they do a great job. We bring 4 of our dogs to Animal House and they are treated very well and always look gorgeous afterwards. We have a couple of nervous dogs and the groomers are very gentle with them. Highly recommend.

I use animal house both for Boarding and grooming, they are great for both. My little guy comes Out f grooming looking so handsome and when we board him I never have to worry. He gets lots of playtime and always makes new friends.

Huge shout out to all the lovely staff at animal house, I just received the mail and in the letters there was one addressed to my dog Tucker that is about to turn 6 in a few days, the staff hand wrote him a happy birthday card and send him a coupon that we can use for his next visit. Thank you so much, we will be visiting very soon due to traveling this upcoming holiday and we will put the gift into good use.

There have been several negative remarks concerning Animal House over the past few weeks. It is my understanding 2 of the occurrence were due to pre-existing health issues and nothing related to neglect or conduct of the staff at Animal House. Knowing there was one tragic event, I hope, does not diminish the reputation of the many years of high praise of all the staff at Animal house. I have been going to Animal house for 15 years. My first dog, Charlie, was called by his name after the first visit. When the staff comes to get my dog Henry, they always call him by name, which is warm feeling to my heart. My dog starts jumping and gets excited when we are close to Animal House. Pets are very intuitive of their surroundings and if he was ever mistreated, he would not react that way. I love all the employees at Animal House, which includes the grooming department. I feel like they are family. So, I hope considering we all make mistakes, please do not be so judgmental for one mistake. I feel sure no one feels any worse than each and every employee at Animal House, but I want them to know, I trust them, I love them for caring for my dog and I would recommend them to anyone.

My pup has been going to Animal House for daycare and boarding for over two years since she was 12 weeks old. They taught her to swim, socialized her, and she loves going. On her school mornings she runs circles around the living room and is super excited to go. She even once jumped out the window of my Wrangler to run to the gate (thank God we were stopped!). She and my older dog have both done day care, boarding and grooming there with no problems. I have interacted most with the people who work in the daycare and they all love the dogs. We love this place!

There is NO place that provides the service, care, and respect to their clients and their pets like The Animal House. Our dog has a seizure condition and we have never worried about him being in the care of any staff member at The Animal House. 100% Class Act and Top Notch! We recommend Animal House to all of our friends and family!

My Pup Loves Animal House! We have tried other Daycares and he does well, but I feel he is most comfortable with the staff at Animal House. They are kind to him, they know who he is, I don’t have to get out of my car for drop off (that’s a big plus for me) I feel he is safe. If anything is a miss they call me about the situation. Would recommend ????❤️

My dog loves place she used to fight me to go to day care at another place but not here she can't get out of the car fast enough. And dropping her off at their both is so convenient. They do so many neat parties for the pups. And the groomers are first class as well as the salon and always professional. It's really cool if I'm busy they have a bus that can pick up and bring my pup home.

My dog absolutely loves going to daycare at Animal House! When he first started he was scared to be left. The staff showed him such patience that he now trots in with his tail wagging. He gets excited when he sees staff members and gives them lots of love. I cannot praise this staff enough for how much they have helped my dog gain confidence and for all the kind treatment they have shown him.

We have been part of the Animal House family for many years. We have used all of their services, boarding, daycare and grooming and have never had any concerns. Our dogs love going there. The staff are extremely professional and treat our dogs just like their own. I highly recommend Animal House! They're the best in the Jacksonville area.

Day care or over night, he always has a BLAST. If you your pet to have a great time TAKE THEM TO ANIMAL HOUSE , They are also great with grooming. THEY ALL LOVE YOUR FURRY BABIES

I LOVE this place....I moved here to NC with my English Bulldog Winston from Wisconsin in April and he absolutely loves going. We take advantage of the grooming as well as over night stays. So far everything has just been great experiences.

Animal House is and always will be my first choice when it comes to pretty much anything related to my miniature labradoodle, Harbor. The staff is incredibly friendly and efficient- Even when they’re faced with a rush of customers. The groomers always do a great job and it’s obvious when watching the live cameras that the boarding staff enjoys playing with the dogs multiple times a day. The online reservation system makes scheduling a breeze and the Bark Bus is extremely convenient considering we live in Swansboro.
