    What Our Clients Say

    I took some private lessons to help teach my puppy Manny basic obedience and I got a chance to work with all the trainers and the results were extraordinary. Within a few minutes of being there my crazy energetic pup turned into a well behaved pup which was amazing!!

    I have been using this boarding service for over a year now, and I couldn't have higher praises!! My dog gets SO excited when I drop him off and I know he gets such good care when he's there! I could not have higher praises for the Dog Den!!

    What a great team you have. Had a chance to have Alex assess my Giant Schnauzer, Etta. Alex was very enthusiastic and personable. It will be fun to follow his career. Alexa and Alana are awesome trainers as well. Beautiful work they did. If this is any indication of the caliber of the trainers you have at your facility I would definitely train there. I look forward to seeing where these trainers go with their careers. So much potential.

    We absolutely love Dog Den and couldn’t be happier with the services they provide. Their knowledge, training and passion is simply amazing. Sarge is only 4 months old but is learning quick with our personal training sessions and he loves coming for daycare. Thank you guys for taking such great care of our boy

    I can’t say enough good things about Alexa, Alex, and Alana of Dog Den. We started off bringing our puppy in for training and now we bring her for day care & overnight boarding when we’re out of town. We’re especially appreciative because our pup has some health issues and Alexa took an immediate interest in her and was extra sensitive it, constantly providing us with updates and photos. Dog den is her second home and we wouldn’t trust anyone else!
