Thank you for visiting us! We'd love to hear from you.
Adogo was wonderful watching my three girls (2 German Shorthair Pointers and 1 English Pointer) Artemis, Athena, and Aurora for my extended trip. The Three A's (as the girls were nicknamed) were well cared for and exhausted when the got home. I had great peace of mind knowing they were in the hands of professionals who cared for the dogs, and that they got to play with other dogs all day long. It was also great that they had a web-cam and I could see my girls playing when I was missing them! You are a wonderful staff and facility, I would recommend you to anyone!
I started bringing my golden retriever here during the summer and this is a "top-notch" place. The owners are on site every morning and the staff is wonderful. I can tell Sadie Lady is well taken care of as she is excited when I say DDC and exhausted when I bring her home. She is always happy and bouncing around when they bring her upfront after a day of platy and falls asleep in the back seat on the way home.
The owners and staff listen to what you have to say and take pride in their ownership. I would also like to add this is the only place my vet will recommend for DDC and boarding. Prices are a little higher than other places, but you get what you pay for and it is first class.
Sadie Lady will be boarding for a week and I am not concerned at all about the care she will get. Sadie Lady loves it there.
My Levi has been coming to Adogo for months. He is tired, happy and healthy when I pick him up at the end of the day. The staff are well trained and obvious dog enthusiasts. I have no reservations whatsoever in placing Levi's care in the hands of these awesome people! Levi participates in daycare, as well as staying several nights at a time in their hotel. Levi sez: These are my peeps! And I give 'em a solid AAA+ rating!
Hi I am looking for an alternative pet hotel and your website is a great selling point. I hope to see you soon!
Our dog Sam stayed with you last weekend. We are amazed at how clean ADOGO is and appreciate the caring service. Your staff was wonderful. Keep up the great work!
Hi ADOGO Staff!
Gus had a great time during his stay. He's always so excited for daycare!
