I've been taking my Westie, Simon, to Blue Dog for YEARS. He loves his play days there, and when I pick him up after grooming he always looks AMAZING. Even at nearly 15 he's always so happy and frisky when he sees where we're going! Thank you to Janet, Sasha and the rest of the team for taking care of this man's best friend.
First time we had to board our lab, Shadow. He had a great time. It was comforting to see him on the webcam and the pics posted. The staff were all so kind and caring with him, especially when we first arrived. Shadow was scared and they were gentle and patient with him. My sons think we should always board him at Blue Dog when we go away because "he had so much fun." Shadow was given a bath and a nail trim and he's never had such soft fur and smelled so nice. Highly recommend Blue Dog.
Our lab puppy is very happy here and comes back clean and tired. No other kennel gives them as much free roaming time (under their High Five option) or outside freedom. They don't charge extra for giving medication, and they were very reasonable about a last minute cancellation due to a hurricane and not charging a brand new price difference. The friendly staff, online reservation system, and webcam are all excellent too.
The grooming was great and the people there is very kind. The daycare is very good but I think there should be some playtime with the dogs from human interactions. My dog loves attention from Humans so I think that should be part of the day.
I'm fortunate to work in the area and fortunate that my 14 year old Husky Mix "Buddy" loves going to Blue Dog Boarding. He prefers to hang out in "elementary school" with the little guys, as it's less stressful. I think it's great how much room the dogs have to play and move around without being confined. The staff are great and "SnowBall" is always there to welcome Buddy with a few sniffs. I also love the ability to view the dogs on webcam when I'm traveling and seeing what the old guy is up to. Actually he's been so active when at Blue Dog that he usually comes home and crashes for 2-3 days to recover...another plus for dad! A great place for your dog.
Janet and her team at Blue Dog are amazing! They get to know and love each and every dog while providing a clean and safe environment. My Westie is always happy to see her friends at daycare. I especially like being able to check on my dog using the webcam when I am away. You will not be disappointed!
Great establishment! They take great care of all the dogs. You can really tell that they care and it shows. The staff is TOP NOTCH! They go the extra mile at every turn. Anytime we need anything specific for our dog, they are happy to accommodate. I would recommend Blue Dog Boarding to everyone!!
I've been taking my dog here regularly (2-3x a week) for daycare for 2 years--since she was a puppy. Or maybe I should say she's been taking me. She loves this place. She hops out of the car tail wagging and goes straight to the front door. And then she hardly gives me a second glance when a staff member leads her to the play area.
I love this place because I don't have to worry when I'm at work or away for the day. I know my dog is playing or relaxing or just enjoying time with a pack. And I know that when I pick her up and take her home all she is going to to do is sleep. That means I can go out, run errands, or just have a night off from dog walking duties. It's great.
I really like the facility because it has an outside play/bathroom area and a large indoor space--enough to have separate play areas for large and small dogs. They also have the web cams and grooming on site. Their grooming w/ daycare package is a great deal.
I have really come to rely and trust the owners and staff. They are friendly and accommodating and they love dogs. So, they know that my dog's welfare is my biggest concern. My dog has always been returned to me in good spirits with no injuries or issues. And she has always wanted to go back for more.
The negative review below strikes me as kind of shady. I don't have an agenda beyond making sure my dog is in a clean, safe, secure place to play and hang out for the day. For me, that place is Blue Dog. I highly recommend trying it out. It works for me because it's convenient to my home and work, the staff is attentive and accommodating, there is an outside area (my dog loves being outside), and the prices are very competitive.
We've been using Blue Dog Boarding and Daycare for the past 5 years and have been very happy with them. They have a well-run facility and professional staff. We have a bichon-poodle who needs frequent grooming. Blue Dog does a great job with her; she looks beautiful and unharmed whenever we pick her up. She has skin allergies too and they are mindful of that and use hypoallergenic shampoos. Her skin is never irritated with them. We used a mobile grooming service once and our dog developed horrible allergy from their shampoo and required multiple vet visits and medication to fix the problem. After that bad experience, we decided to stick with Blue Dog and our dog's doing well since. We have also boarded our dog with them many times, when we vacation. Our dog gets to roam and hang-out with dogs her size and we get to watch her on Webcam! She can stay indoors or go out to the "beach" where there is sand and a doggie pool! No place is like home, but I know that with Blue Dog, my dog is safe and well-cared for.
