Horrible treatment of my beloved dog! Borderline neglect for the 5 nights he stayed there! We've used this kennel for over 4 years and Ive been suspecting things were gojng "downhill". VERY DISAPPOINTING!!! NEVER GOING BACK!!!

My dog always came home sick or with hot spots. Boxers beds and biscuits is much better.

We have never had any issues with them and have been very pleased with the services that they provide. Very friendly staff and always busy.

Your dog was obviously sick prior to arriving at this kennel! Shame on you for trying to put the blame on someone else!!

The woman who wrote this review had a 10 year mastiff that SHE neglected. She just needs someone else to blame!

Winding Road Kennel has a staff that truly and genuinely loves animals and cares for their campers as if they were their own pets. I would not take my dogs anywhere else for boarding or grooming. Their customer service is outstanding! My dog loves going here and I would highly recommend them to anyone that has a furry friend that needs a place to board!

My BABY is not neglected!!! How freaking DARE you say so! If you'd like to ask OUR vet about this, you're more than welcome to call him (you know who he is, your vet had the nerve to tell me he wasn't a good vet, remember??). He can tell you that our pets are taken way better care of than most people's children, especially MY English Mastiff! Anyone who neglects their pet doesn't drive 3 hours in the snow, during vacation, to come get them when someone else is not caring for them properly. You're ER vet wanted $500 to even treat our dog, but our vet treated him (& healed him quickly) for that injury (caused by the concrete & fencing in your tiny kennels), for about $25. I'm sorry, but nobody is touching my dog, or any pet, without ME being there to assess the situation first, that is as long is its not life threatening) I didn't trust you all to begin with, there were just a lot of little things that I could tell weren't being done like I asked...i.e. he didn't get his toys like I asked, he didn't ever get his bones like I asked, he was always FILTHY & stinky when he came home & after that incident, he actually had poop, blood, mud, etc., ALL over him!!! The least you could've done was clean him up a little! You DO have a groom shop there after all! I was appalled by his condition that day. Not to mention, his toenails were ground down beyond the quicks!! I still haven't figured out if you all filed them down, or if he was so terrified that he dug and dug at the concrete floor of his "jail"!! Either way, it wasn't mentioned to me, and I don't see how none of you could've noticed the blood coming out his nails!! All of this is NEGLECT!!!! Also, I'd be damned if I'd paid extra for more "yard/play time" when I know that wouldn't really happen. I'm supposed to believe, just on your word, that my dog will get an extra 15 min outside, yeah right. You're lucky you didn't have a lawsuit on your hands the SECOND time he came home from that place with an injury (not to mention a cold/cough...and yes, he had his KC vaccine, after all it's required by you all to board there), or that you don't get one slapped on you now from this comment! You obviously work there, or own the place. Say another thing about me, or my dog, and I can guarantee that a lot more people will hear about this! I can definitely tell a lot more about this place, and it's not good!!
Now, like I said before, we were satisfied with this place until an emergency situation arose. They have no idea how to deal with these situations, or to be caring for their customers feelings in these situations. They also have NO idea how to deal with or handle a giant breed dog.

I have had nothing but good experience with winding road kennel. We have our three dogs groomed there on a regular basis and have never had an issue. The staff have always been friendly and courteous. It sounds like from the previous poster that your loving dog had some separation anxiety. Bless his heart. One of our "kids" are the same way..

I used to work at this establishment and let me tell you that the workers care a lot about the animals but the owner doesn't turn away any dog even if out of room the stick them in small crates in those out buildings. Don't pay for extra play time cause they don't get it!!
