I've boarded Louie at least four times and I couldn't be happier with the way they care for him. I wouldn't think of boarding him anywhere else. They send me pictures while I'm gone. He's all cleaned up and groomed when I pick him up. I'm so glad I have someone I trust totally to care for my little furbaby.
I've taken my mixed doggy, Jacques (Corgi/Doxie) to Old Stage twice, now, and love it. The attention to Jacques is wonderful and the grooming he receives is excellent. I used to take him to a large pet store grooming salon, which was fine, but it was far more expensive and I was never sure that the groomer was telling me the truth about his behavior. I want to know if he is causing any problems and I trust that at Old Stage I will be told the truth (and no, he doesn't exhibit any behavioral issues; although he is a bit anxious while being groomed). I gladly drive the two hour round trip (from Westwood in Cincinnati) to Waynesville for the wonderful services at Old Stage.
We love boarding our pups here, they treat them just like family. My pups come home tired and happy when we pick them up.
Just wanted to share that our schnauzer, Margee Jo, loves being pampered by Pam who grooms dogs at Old Stage Kennels. She, obviously, loves furbabies and treats them like her own. She has been very encouraging about how Margee will adapt to her recent sudden onset of blindness. Pam's fees are reasonable and the facility is clean and a healthy place for our girl to be every month!
Thanks, Pam, for doing a great job of keeping our girl looking her best.
We have been taking our black lab here for 5 years whenever we will be out of town and need boarding. The staff is always friendly and our dog always loves to go. When we hand him off to the workers to go back to his run he is pulling on his leash and doesn't even look back. Like a kid who can't wait to see his friends at the playground :-) The runs are indoor/outdoor, just like we have at home. You can also set up playtime in a yard with other compatible dogs, which my dog loves. We've used them multiple times a year, even up to 3 weeks when we were on vacation, and our dog is certainly happy to see us when we pick him up, but he always comes home happy and healthy.
Old Stage Kennels has taken care of our dogs for years. Our dogs have always been well cared for and have had great experiences. We highly recommend OSK for quality and friendliness of service and for the attention they give to our pets!
I've taken my dog to old state kennels for 3 years he goes to 2 to 3 days a week. As soon as has he sees his ziploc bag of food in the morning for daycare he runto the garage door and waits for me and jumps into the car. The staff are incredible and very kind to my dog. Not sure what I do without them.
I've been taking my labradoodle to Old Stage for five years. He is a large, energetic boy that loves to play. I like that he gets to be outside on real grass instead of inside on a concrete floor where he can't really run. At Old Stage, they match dogs up with similar energy levels and make sure they are compatible before they let them go out together. I take him to "camp" twice a week to play with his buddies. He always comes home happy and tired. I used to take him to Petsmart for daycare which cost twice as much. Unfortunately, they would put him in time out (a kennel run) because he was too playful. He never came home tired and was very anxious when I took him in. It's the exact opposite at Old Stage. He runs and jumps in the car when I ask if he wants to go to camp. He loves all the employees and they all know and love him.
I have also boarded him at Old Stage when I've gone on vacation. I used to feel guilty about leaving him at a kennel but now I know he is well taken care of and having a good time himself.
I have a wonderful chocolate lab that was miserable staying at a kennel prior to our vet recommending Old Stage. About two years ago we took Karl to Old Stage and the manager immediately recognized that Karl was not happy being put in a kennel and let him "hang out" in the front office whence he became one of the "greeters". What stands out about this facility is their ability to accommodate such a wide range of dog behaviors and make the overall experience so positive.
We were very pleased with the family friendly approach at Old stage Kennel. They included our children and even allowed them to walk back and get our doggies! The staff was very pleasant. We will definitely be returning for future stays.
Dropped all 3 of my large dogs off here. I have two with separation anxiety so she made sure to keep them together. They even took their walks and played together. Talerie went above and beyond letting me know if something seemed "off" with any of them and sending some pictures so I could see my fur babies during our trip. They were dropped off on a Saturday and picked up the following Saturday, all bathed and healthy when I picked them up....I was given an update on how they did....they are tired and happy to be home! I'm sure they enjoyed meeting new friends. I will definitely use them again.
Talerie wanted me to feel comfortable and the pups to be comfortable....she even had me bring them for a free daycare day so they could meet the staff before our trip and drop of wouldn't be the first time they have been there.
I may do a few daycare days throughout the year so next vacation they will feel even more at ease and so will I. I told her from the beginning I was nervous and she responded with "what can we do to make you feel more comfortable" also she was happy to answer any questions or concerns along the way.
I have taken my dog here for at least 20 years and they have always done a great job, what I liked about it was the inside outside runs the dogs have, so they are not always inside until someone lets them out. I thinks pets experience anxiety when they are outside of their normal routine, but this place is a great alternative to keeping the pet with you.
Friendly and well kept
Fantastic kennel. Great personnel. Take very good care of all pets whether for one day or a week. Owner is an expert trainer. If you have any problems with your pet she can fix it.
