I’ve been sending my young pup to Safe Journey for daycare about 4 days a week since August as well as for periodic boarding. He loves going and has been great for his socialization. The hours are great and offer a decent amount of flexibility for my schedule. Also, the staff is friendly and seem to genuinely care about my dog. All in all, I’ve been very satisfied with the quality, especially for the cost. It’s a great value. I plan to continue sending my dog here!

My friend was taken ill and I could not take his dog into my house. On a moments notice Safe Journey Dog Boarding said that they would take Jack the dog in for the night. They were truly concerned about Jack. Thank you!

The girl at the front desk was nice. It’s really dirty. I didn’t feel safe leaving my dog there, but he’s little.

I wanted to take my Loki some place where he could roam free and wouldn't be confined all day, but I was apprehensive because he is a pandemic pup and really hasn't been around many new people, let alone other dogs. I appreciate their process of requiring a play date, first, to ensure he will acclimate. They also start new pups in a green room with a smaller group of dogs to help the transition. The play date went well and he was cleared for boarding. When we came back for his boarding stay, he was so excited to see her that it put my mind at ease. I also love that she lives on-site so there is always someone there with my pup. He just finished his first boarding stay, over Labor Day weekend, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how well he adjusted to being back home!! He was super happy to see me, but wasn't clingy or withdrawn, as can happen when they have been stressed. I feel fortunate to have found Safe Journey and will not hesitate to use their services again!

My dog was there for 7 days and when picked her up her eyes were watery she was eating like never ate while was there. She was so tired and weak. Not sure what happened there going to the Vet tomorrow. Not recommended at all.

Called in for the first time and had someone answered with a tone. Sounds they been overworked. Take care of your employees if that’s the case.

I have nothing negative to say about them. Only thing is that i wish they were closer to Troutdale. I absolutely love bringing my dog here. He always comes home very very tired. You can tell that the staff here is very knowledgeable about what they're doing as well. I drop him off before work or a trip and i leave with a peace of mind. i appreciate how they try to accommodate my schedule as well. I also love how they don't kennel their dogs. My dog has terrible separation anxiety and a kennel would not be a good time for him. I really appreciate this business, and the staff that can make it all happen. I will be recommending them to anyone who needs a great doggy day care.

They allowed a pitbull to attack and KILL my mini schnauzer while in their care. I would not recommend you trust your pets life in their hands.

My dog had the time of his life! She sent me pictures to show me how much fun he was having. A great way to have your dog socialize with other dogs. Peace of mind when you need quality boarding!

Great customer service whether you are a dog or a human! We've been taking our pup here 2-3 times a week for almost a year now. She has some mobility issues and they have been very accommodating. Being part of the pack has helped her build confidence and be a happier dog all around. Can't recommend this place enough.

I have boarded my dog, Indigo, at Safe Journey twice now and have been pleased both times. The staff are always friendly and responsive. The rates are fair. The building itself is very colorful and charming. Most importantly, the dogs are able to roam freely inside and outside for most of the day, offering them time to socialize and explore. Indigo has returned home happy both times. I highly recommend Safe Journey for dog boarding!

My little boy Gandalf loved it at Safe Journey! They keep you updated with pictures and they don't mind if you call to see how your fur-baby is doing. The pack invorment is just what he needs. He made a friend named Merlin. They had many adventures together. #WizardBros

We dropped off our pup Luna for an evaluation day. The lady that got her from the front seemed really nice. They wouldn’t let us in at all which was a little strange, stating that the owner lives there and has concerns of COVID. While I definitely understand that, this is a place of business, not just someone’s home. We are leaving our fur baby to someone that won’t even let us inside. I read one random review commenting that they didn’t hear any dogs barking which made me realize we hadn’t either. They said they had about 30 dogs and it was basically an old town home turned into the day care, so you would think with that many dogs in a small location on a city street that you would at least hear something. All this just seemed like red flags. We will not be taking our dog back. Again, no real issues with our experience, but just wanted to write this for others to see and think about. I read some reviews from 1+ years ago about the owner sedating the dogs without owner approval. While I’m not sure if that is still an issue, it was just another red flag for us.

I have been taking my husky to safe journey for five years, ever since he was a puppy. In a sense, they helped me raise my dog, considering how much time he has spent there. Excellent care for dogs including open spaces for the dogs to exercise, he always comes home tired and happy. He sleeps pretty much the entire next day too, definitely get your money’s worth. The staff and personable and very receptive to any concerns. Highly recommend day care and boarding service!

Safe Journey was our first experience with dog boarding, and we’re so happy to have a found a spot so flexible, reasonably priced and experienced. We really appreciated the thorough orientation we received and know that our dog is in great hands!

We've been taking our dog here since 2016 and we couldn't be happier with the level of service we receive. Our dog, Xena, loves staying here because she never gets kenneled and can run around with a pack of dogs all day long. They are also extremely accommodating when we need to drop her off early, or if we need to leave her overnight on the fly. Great service! 100% recommend!

The staff were very accommodating with our last minute request to drop the dogs off for a couple hours so we could explore Portland. The place is small but clean. The dogs seemed content when we picked them up.
