Owner of PLF was rude and difficult to deal with.
I will stay away from this unprofessional business.

Owner is rude and a bully if you don't agree with her. She has posted lies and half truths on the business FB page about my dog. She is claiming she was involved in my dogs medical treatment and that we refused to follow through on his treatment which is untrue. I saw her pick up my dog by the collar, leaving his hind legs on the ground which solved the mystery of why he was always coughing after leaving her facility. She is very unprofessional and threatens to contact her attorney if you leave negative feedback.

Sona Pyle is more like Gomer Pyle. She is a joke. I have seen more abuse cases come from her facility than any pet facilities in the area. Why do you think she has cameras. She was found guilty of anise. Why all the contracts and Llc so she doesn't lose her place. And give me a break pack leader pack bozo

Absolute WORST experience ever with dog daycare. I took my two dogs to their daycare assessment and Sonia was friendly at first. She let my dogs in the back room along with my mom and I. She said she wanted them to get them acquainted with the area. After less than 2 minutes of being in the room, she let all of her dogs into the room with us WITHOUT WARNING. My mom and I grabbed my dogs because they have had a history of aggressive behavior when I am in the room, but have done well if I am out of the picture.

Her demeanor immediately changed. We were immediately told to "get out" and that I couldnt be trusted. She had asked no information about my dogs and how they are with other dogs prior to letting her dogs into the room. She blamed it on me for not providing her with any of that information, even though this all happened within less than 5 minutes of arriving.

She only had a spray bottle to interrupt any conflicts between the dogs and she could barely move around due to what looked like a knee injury. She was using profane language and she was incredibly rude and unnecessarily angry. She didn't even give my dogs a chance to be tested when I wasn't around. She continued to tell me that its a cage free environment and that I need to read the website before I consider bring my dogs back. I had read the website multiple times, but checked it to ensure I hadnt missed anything. It says how dogs that aren't great with other dogs are welcome and can be fixed using Caesar Milan's techniques and that a 6 hour assessment occurs prior to being accepted into daycare.

I have never heard of ANY dog training facility allowing one pack of dogs to be immediately introduced into another, simply by releasing all the dogs into a confined area. Her knowledge of claiming to use Caesar Milans techniques is nonexistent.

On an article about introducing dogs into a new pack, Caesar states:

"The number one rule when bringing a new dog into a household that already has dogs is to do it gradually. The worst mistake people can make when adding a new pack member is to just bring the dog into the house. To the dogs that were already there, this is an intrusion on their territory by a stranger. To the new dog, being thrust into an unknown environment leaves it without any rules to follow or boundaries to respect.

"This method of introduction is the formula for disaster. Do it this way, and you’ll wind up with a pack that fights, competes over everything, and is generally not fun to deal with."

Sonia has no clue how to work with dogs or how to introduce them into a new environmemt. We have found a significant number of reviews saying the owner is rude, mistreats/neglects dogs, and only cares about the money.

PLEASE read other reviews prior to using this place for your dogs. As you sift through reviews on facebook, google, and topix, you will realize theres a lot of people who have had very negative encounters with Puppy Luv Farms.

[I attempted to post this review on Facebook and was told I am blocked from admin from posting a review and my google review was removed moments later. I'm assuming similar things have happened to people with bad experiences. She has very few reviews, assuming she took those down as well.]
