Staff actively listened to my concerns and addressed them all, making me comfortable that my Kenobi (8 mos kitten) with an irritated paw from surgery was well taken care of. Kristen was especially reassuring and went out of her way to make Kenobi secure AND she addressed his reddened paw (with my permission) with Colloidal Silver and intermittent use of the vet's plastic collar to keep him from licking. Oral meds were also given as prescribed. Kenobi stayed 3 nights and when I picked him up his paw looked 95% improved! I was very surprised and super pleased. ~~ The only downside to Bayside is the noise factor. Daytimes, their grooming business is quite loud and can be disturbing and, of course, some of their boarded dogs will bark, as you would expect. I expect there are cats & dogs used to this and for them it's not a problem, others may be stressed or overwhelmed by the noise. Maybe they adjust quickly, I really don't know. Remediating the noise factor with some soundproofing would be potentially expensive, I would think, but it would provide a much improved and more calm environment. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Overall experience: Really excellent and recommended! Thanks to all of the caring staff, and very special thanks to Kristen for your kind words of concern and extra care to my kitten. ~ Suzanne Riley October 15 - 18, 2021

Our anxious, barky one year old Sheltie stayed with Bayside for 5 days boarding and she came home her normal, happy, healthy self. I was very nervous as she had never boarded before and would now highly recommend them to anyone.

The Bayside staff take such good care of my pups, sometimes they don't want to leave. My pups have never shown any signs of dislike for Bayside. I use this kennel every time I go out of town without them.

Our dog was vaccinated/ after staying there got Bordatella - kennel cough. I called Bayside kennel- they said, "they had many calls of other dogs there getting sick". But no apology or refund. Now I have three dogs at home sick and vet costs. Would not recommend taking dogs there.

Love, love, love this place and so do our doggies!! They are great at grooming our Springer and our dogs enjoy being kenneled there. Last time we went to pick them up, one of them was trying to stay in the back with the staff for a bit longer because she loves them. She thinks all humans were put on Earth just for her. ????

the very best place in the world to kennel your pets. friendly staff who really care about your fur kids. lots of products for sale. very clean and site inspections welcome great groomers who give report cards. they keep extensive notes during each stay.... lots of opportunities for out of kennel time and extra cudsling and one on one time with a staff member. owner, Robert, cares about his staff and your pet and treats his furry customers like they are his own. santa pictures offered at Christmas.

My husband and I always drop off our two pugs when we go out of town and they treat our dogs like their own and the pugs are always so excited to go there and come back happy and clean. We totally recommend them because of the friendly staff as well!

Caring staff, excellent facilities for short or long term pet boarding. Bayside also offers excellent pet grooming and washing. We have trusted them with our dogs for several years with no issues.

I have been taking my dogs to Bayside Animal Lodge for years and would not go anywhere else. Robert and staff are fabulous! From "walks" to "big play" my dogs have a great time and return home happy after their visit. If you are looking for a safe, secure, fun place to leave your pets - go see Robert and the BAL staff...

This is by far the very best place for your loved pets to stay or visit. We have had so many great experiences with them. Thank you Robert for all your help with Thor today. We could not have done it without you!

We have two small dogs. They share a pen, when at Bayside. They are always in great spirits, with no side affects, after their stay. bayside's staff is friendly and caring. What more could you ask for, when trusting your pup to someone?
