I have to go to Baltimore this weekend and will need to board my puppys 1 night. Is anyone from that area and can recommend a safe kennel that will let them play & exercise them. I've been checking on the internet & found For Pet's Sake on Falls Road. They say they have wading pools, exercise runs, etc. The only thing that bothers me is that they want to feed them the kennel's food (Science Diet sensitive stomach) and mine eat Wolf Cub. I have no other choice but to board them on Sat. so I want to be sure I placing them someplace safe. Any input would be appreciated.
Wont they feed your food if you provide it? Most places will do that if you dont use the food they have on site, they ask you to bring it and they will feed it. Put it is measured out ziploc baggies.
I got so much info from them when I called to check them out, I forgot to ask if I could bring their food, duh. So I called back & they will feed my food for an extra charge. I don't have a problem w/paying extra to make sure I know what the dogs are eating but I thought that was a little strange.
I've never heard of an extra charge for feeding your food lol...It cost them less :
But..it is important to not have the dog's food be changed like that. Odd policy
Don't be so upset about the extra charge.
Something else for them to keep track of.
Assumption on their part should be that this dog has special needs (maybe allergy, maybe sensitive stomach, maybe something else.) So owner wants to provide food for dogs sake. Therefore, they take the responsibility seriously to be sure the dog gets the right food and feel they deserve compensation for the added responsibility.
OR SO I WOULD LIKE TO BELIEVE
Hershey Kisses, In charge of getting Ed out to the dog park so that he gets some exercise.
Oh, I'm not upset about the extra charge. I want to be sure they are getting what I normally feed them. I just thought the same as WeHeartLabs that it would be cheaper to feed our food.
Bring them to me here in Ocean City :P
Seriously though. I'm from Baltimore and we haven't boarded in a long time. Where in Baltimore will you be? Downtown there is Charm City Dogs (never been there nor do I know anyone who goes there)
Up in Joppatowne (Harford County area) there is a place called 'Best Friends Furever'...I've been there and know people who take their dogs there...it's a GREAT place. Their website is: http://www.bestfriendsfurever.com/index.htm
I've heard of For Pet's Sake...I just hate driving anywhere on Falls Rd lol it's a very congested area
