Attention! Attention to the dogs, to the humans, being able to check in on my baby girl while she plays at any time by phone or camera. Clean dog appropriate environment. The only change...move the drinking bowl away from the pole outside ;)
Our dog loves to stay at Dogtopia. It's so comforting to leave her there knowing she is so happy. And we can watch her online to check on her. She is exhausted when she returns. At least 6 other families on our street use Dogtopia - we all love it.
We like the way Jules and Jett are anxious to go INTO Dogtopia when we arrive. That, to us, speaks volumes about the way they are treated and the fun they have there, even when they are going for grooming and/or boarding, because we always make sure they have time for some daycare fun with their buddies. The cleanliness of the place, the way there's always a human or two with the dogs whether they're playing inside or out, and the fact there are such big air-conditioned romping spaces for them to run around in when it's hot make it a welcome resource. The insistence on up to date shots and making sure new dogs can get along with others also provide peace of mind when we leave the boys.
I feel confident that Dutchess is in capable hands while we are away and we don't have to worry about her. We also like the fact that we can keep an eye on her through the doggie cam. She seems to always have a positive experience with no chance of getting bored!
