As someone who travels with relative frequency and always brings her dog with her, I am used to entrusting virtual strangers with taking care of my dog during the day for daycare. I have to say that in the time I have had him, my dog always leaps when my husband or I come get him. Even if he does enjoy his time, he always runs out like a bullet, happy to get to go home. When we picked him up at Dawn's, he actually ran back in as if to get a last whiff of the most wonderful time he ever had.
Dawn was not only nice, but her love of dogs was readily apparent. I know my dog had the best day ever. I got stuck in snow traffic/accidents and a 2 hour drive back to her took 5 hours, making my arrival to her 2 hours after I had said I would arrive. Not only was she accommodating and reassuring, but she also took great care of my pup.
I'm "that" dog owner. I make people at work gag with the amount of love and attention I lavish on my dog.Pictures, stories, videos....... So, you can imagine that when I need a place to leave my "huge bear of a princess" I am quite selective who to choosee. I have been so lucky over the years to have found that person. Dawn is awesome. She provides such a safe and loving environment for the dogs in her care. I wouldn't think about sending Luna anywhere else. My mind is always at ease when I leave her with Dawn, I don't worry about a thing. Luna comes home happy to see me, but obviously having had a wonderful visit with her buddies at Dawn's Dog Boarding. Do your dog a favor, leave him/her with Dawn.

DAWN'S DOG BOARDING is my ace in the hole! Dawn has watched my dogs as I zigzagged the world the last seven years. Going away was persistently a big worry before I found Dawn. The question, "Who would give my little guys the care and love they need?" would wrack my brain. I couldn't bear the thought of a cold kennel or a cage at my vets. Then came Dawn. She treats each dog as an important individual in her cherished pack. My older dog, Taz, was given the respect a senior citizen deserved. My young dog, Pinball, is given the time to run and play to his hearts content. Trusted medicine administration e.g. injections(poor Taz), and simple dog maintenance e.g. nail cutting(poor Pinball) have been no problem at Dawn's. Taz was allowed his own slower pace and space and Pinball's exuberance for high-jinx and playmates have always been fulfilled. If it is weeks abroad or an emergency last minute weekend, no matter what, Dawn is the greatest.

“Because of the dog's joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born. What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass? What would this world be like without dogs?”
