SHAME ON BAYSIDE KENNELS – Shame on Bayside Kennels - had been taking my dog there for grooming. Never again. The groomer badly skinned my dog under both of his eyes - he then was diagnosed with conjunctivitis which drained into the irritated areas causing his skin under the eyes to become sore, reddened and inflamed. They talked me out of seeing my vet by telling me that if the vet at Bayside agreed that the grooming contributed to this issue, I would not have to pay. Well no surprise - he said he couldn't say one way or another so I was charged for his services. What I have now been told is that the vet owns Bayside Kennels. What a set up. They blew me off by saying - we're sorry. Will NEVER use them again. By the way - not the first time the groomer skinned my pet but never this bad. If you love your pet - don't use this facility. The vet protected his groomer and they took me for a financial ride. And by the way - the vet never gave me any medication for infection or pain - only eye drops. No concern about my pet at all.
Great Experience! – We recently added two "fur kids" to our family and they boarded over Christmas while we visited family up north. I had never boarded a pet before and was apprehensive about leaving them behind. The staff quickly put my worried mind at ease and both my goldendoodle puppies took to them immediately, like they'd known them forever! The facility was just as clean as it had been a couple weeks earlier when I took a tour and the check in area smells like the yummy candles they sell. (So good I bought 2 candles for home.) I was able to have haircuts done on them before picking them up and they look fabulous!! Will be using Bayside for boarding AND grooming from now on!
Won't take my "kids" elsewhere! – I am a strong believer that dogs are family, and I only want the best for mine. All 3 of my dogs get SO excited as soon as we pull up to the building and bark their heads off wanting to get back to the kennel area. Sometimes I wonder if they even miss me! The lobby always smells clean and my dogs come home tired and happy. When I start my new job with longer hours I will likely start using their dog daycare too. :D
Love it! – I could not be happier with Bayside Kennels! The staff is excellent. They have went over and beyhod to ensure my dog Cupcake is well taken care of while she is at Doggie Day Care.
Because of their outstanding customer service Cupcake will be a life time customer!
VERY UNHAPPY !! – I AM VERY UNHAPPY WITH THIS PLACE , I USED THEM FOR THE FIRST TIME OVER THE XMAS HOLIDAYS , I PICKED HER UP AND NOTICED SHE HAD LOST ABOUT 10 LBS. AND WAS NOT HER HAPPY SELF ! SHE CAME HOME AND DRANK A BOWL OF WATER AND THEN WANTED ANOTHER , SHE ATE LIKE SHE HAD NEVER BEFORE AND THEN WENT AND LAID DOWN , USUALLY SHE IS VERY HAPPY AND LOVES TO BE WITH OUR KIDS , SHE DIDN'T EVEN NOTICE THEM . SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE HAD A HORRIBLE TIME THERE AND ACTS LIKE IT TOO ! TODAY IS THE SECOND DAY SHE IS HOME AND SHE WON'T GET OUT OF BED ! I AM VERY UPSET WITH THIS KENNEL ! I WILL NEVER DO THS AGAIN ! I WOULD HAVE CALLED THE KENNEL ABOUT IT , BUT THOUGHT "FOR WHAT ' THEY PROBOBLY WOULDN'T TELL ME WHAT HAPPEND ANYWAY , I DID CALL ABOUT HER WHEN SHE WAS THERE AND THEY TOLD ME" OH YES SHE IS FINE EATING AND IS VERY SWEET !" OBVIOUSLY SHE WAS NOT EATING !!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE !
Great grooming! – I have used Bayside Kennels Groomers for my Scottish Terrier for over three years. I have never been dissatisfied with her cut. They have easy drop off and call as soon as she is finished. Their prices are reasonable and the staff friendly. I also kennel Pepper there when needed and have never been dissatisfied with their service.
FABULOUS PLACE FOR PETS AND OWNERS ! – My English Cocker Spaniel has been goomed, boarded and attends "doggie day care" at Bayside Kennels and she Loves it! When I tell her I'm taking the to "play-play" for the day, she goes crazy to get to the garage and get in the car. When we arrive, she pulls me to the door of the kennel and runs into the waiting arms of her daycare "teacher" for that day. Everyone loves her and I have had a wonderful relationship with each staff member. It is truly a great place for both of us.
Great and Happy Kennel – We've boarded our big, healthy Golden Golden at Bayside Kennels on numerous occasions (twice in the last month!) Our Golden Retriever loves it and so do we. As soon as we walk in our dog is excited to be there. He's greeted warmly by all staff as are we. When we pick him up he's happy and beautifully groomed (when we ask for the option of grooming.) As with other Golden Retrievers, our dog has a tendency to lose hair ("Hot Spots") when upset or nervous. We've never had that problem with him here (as we have with other kennels) When we pick him up he's a super happy dog. We highly recommend it and so does our Golden!
Well Worth the Visit – With a couple of mixed reviews, I'm certainly glad I decided to tour the place and see for myself! On kind of a short notice, they staff kindly offered me a tour and booked our cocker for a 5 night stay and a haircut (I have a groomer, but for the convenience). I was impressed that the place looked exactly like the website, didn't smell like a kennel, and was much bigger than it appears, and the dogs can see other dogs from their own run. Since my dog loves to play with other dogs, I elected to shedule daycare during boarding at a price that could not beat! My dog did not have that flu shot and they allowed me to have it done at check in with their vet, so that was convenient. They even provided me a brochure with a recap on the prices, as well as, answers to some of my questions. The staff had my dog ready early Saturday morning, even with her haircut. I think along with a new boarding facility, I think I have found a new groomer too! I definately recommend Bayside Kennels and will continue to take my dog there!
Very Disappointed – I have a golden retriever who is a very sweet and loving dog. I used this kennel 2 times before, just for an overnight stay. The most recent time I took her, I left her there for three days and was horrified by what I saw. I labeled and separated her food and asked them to feed her that. I asked them if it would be possible to give her a rawhide per day and two toys for her to play with. I also gave her 2 blankets for her cage. When I came to pick her up, 1 of the blankets was soaking wet as was her favorite toy. I asked why and they told me that they were in the play area and one of the other dogs must have peed on them. WHY were they in the play area?? They were her toys for her cage. Also, they only gave her one of the bags of food I prepared for her. I don't know what they fed her but she has had diarreah the past 2 days. She came home and was shaking, had dirt all over her face, and has not been herself since being there. Would not recommend.
