I just recently got my chocolate lab trained at thee dog house and all I can say is THANK YOU. I called them after having tried for months to train my lab through one of the big store classes to no avail. I felt horrible. Was it my fault, I wondered. Now I know it is well worth the investment to save yourself the time and frustration only to fail in the end. Coco loves going back to see her new friends at thee dog house and I LOVE seeing her pictures on their facebook pages. My whole family are now fans of thee dog house but none bigger than Coco and me. Thank you again.
I had signed my girl up for a 6 week obedience course where I would drop her off and pick her up daily. When I first dropped her off, the stench of urine was overwhelming and I should have turned around right then and there but I gave the place the benefit of the doubt. I figured with that many dogs, that there would obviously be an odor- but this was ridiculous. The first day she came home, she smelled like urine BAD. I asked them to rinse her off before I picked her up the next time. Instead of doing so, they just sprayed some conditioner on top of the smell. Day 3 she gets home and repeatedly licked at her paws. Upon inspection, I noticed redness between her toes. When brought to Dan’s attention, he said it was most likely a yeast infection from the pool and to give it a couple days to clear up with her staying out of the pool. Day 5 she gets home and she has green goop in her eyes. By this time, I finally smarten up and take her to the vet where I find out that she has in infection between her toes AND conjunctivitis. Needless to say, I called Monday morning to inform them that she would never be back and requested a full refund as well as reimbursement of the vet bill. He agreed to the refund, but not the vet bill initially. It has now been a month since I first requested reimbursement and still have not received it. I am receiving excuse after excuse after excuse and now need t o resort to legal action. This place is not only disgustingly unsanitary but the owner has a serious attitude and awful customer service skills. I’m so mad at myself for not following through with my first impression of this place and not reading all the reviews on this horrid place.
Check ALL review sites! Especially Yelp! Even Wavy 10 did a story on this place.
My dog Samson was expelled from a doggie daycare in March 2012 for being aggressive towards the employees. He had been attending this daycare for 7 months with little to no incidents. Samson & I were both devastated. I was also panicking because I needed another daycare for him to attend,but was afraid no one would take him.I searched the web & found Thee Dog House.I was impressed with Dan's credentials and his knowledge of dogs.I called & spoke to him directly,took Samson in for an assessment and the rest is history.Since coming to Thee Dog House,Samson & I are so happy. Dan & his staff are excellent. They are friendly, professional and really love dogs. They constantly work with Samson and his overall training skills are greatly improved. He has had no problems with aggression and that's extremely important to me because he is a Rottweiler and the breed already has a very bad reputation. I highly recommend Thee Dog House for owners who not only want a dog sitting service, but a place that really cares about their dogs well being and development.
this is the best place to train your dog and for daycare. They all really care about all the dogs and take great care of them. And the training is wonderful I wouldnt have been able to get Brady where he is today without them !
I know I have posted before on recommendations but I cant stop bragging about thee dog house the great staff there and how well they take care of all the dogs there !
We met Dan at a DockDog event and became close friends. We rescued a Weim, Odin, at about 8-9 months old. the first 6months were bad. He fought with my other 3 dogs. My wife told me to get rid of him on many occasions. Then I spoke to Dan about training. Dan took Odin for a month from us. We live in Ohio and he is in VA Beach. It was like sending your kid to camp. We called everyday. Dan was probably getting tired of us but he was sooo polite. Well, Odin is still with us, fully trained and one our best dogs! Thank you Dan and Thee Dog House for helping us keep Odin!
To anyone who is sitting on the fence considering adopting a weim I would like to say- DO IT! We recently adopted Dodge to be a companion to our chocolate lab Coco and he is the most amazing dog we have ever had!
My two labs love coming to daycare here! And I love that I have somewhere to take them where I have complete trust that they are taken care of. I visited at least 6 other places before deciding on Thee Dog House. I have recommended them to all my friends and family with dogs.
We recently got our dane pup apollo back a few days ago and he is a perfect gentleman now. We were about to give him up if we could not get him under control. He was a 100+ pound nightmare, he was biting everyone and everything. Dan and his staff are very proffessional and thorough. They treated him like he was their own and took very good care of him the time they had him. He came back home a completley different dog. I highly recommend Thee dog house to anyone with a dog, not so much for the training for him or her but for the owners too. Thanks Dan and to all of your staff for all you have done for our family, you saved our baby. We are definitely going back to your day care service and grooming service I know he will always be in good hands there. You saved our baby lol.
