I just wanted to let you know how pleased my husband and I were with your Country Dogs facility in [NYC/NJ/PA]. Tom, Ruth, and John were fantastic. I have boarded my dogs before; and while I’ve never had any specific complaints, something always seemed amiss. For 3 days after bringing them home they would be anxious and hyperactive.
I have 2 boxers with 2 very different needs. Miranda, 12, is a very sensitive dog that needs a gentle touch. Her arthritis requires medicine on a daily basis. Otto, on the other hand, is 6 and very high energy. I also had some concerns regarding his aggression towards other dogs. After talking to Tom, I felt reassured he had the knowledge and skills to meet our needs. Still, I did call 3 times from Mexico for an update; and never once did they make me feel foolish for checking-in. It was a relief to hear they were doing well, and amusing to learn the names of their new doggie playmates. When we picked them up we found two happy and fit dogs. Miranda was actually walking better with less signs of arthritis, and Otto was very calm. So calm, in fact, he slept for three days. Mission accomplished!
We can’t thank the Copes enough for all of the expertise and TLC they showed Otto and Miranda during their stay at Country Dogs. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a clean, caring, safe, and fun environment in which to board their dogs!
