Highly recommend Top Dog Doggie Daycare – Top dog has been amazing for our dog Harper. He gets a full day of play with other dogs (his favorite), and practically leaps into Darren's arms when he comes to the door.

We've boarded Harper with Darren twice, and he was happy and healthy when we came to pick him up.

I highly recommend Top Dog.

Best Dog Daycare – I previously used another dog daycare I didn't like and found Darren and Top Dog through a referral. I couldn't be happier. I have had my dog going to the park with Top Dog for 7 years now. I know my dog loves it because he flips out as soon as he hears the van approaching and flies out the door and into the van as soon as the door is opened. I have a very high energy dog and I can tell a huge difference in the evenings after he has gone to daycare. Darren has also had a key to my house the entire 7 years and I trust him completely.

Irresponsible Dog Daycare – I was just at the Hamm Creek Watershed (an open field between the Duwamish and Hwy 599 in Seattle). As I was heading out to leave, a Top-Dog van pulled up. Out spilled ELEVEN large dogs and one person. The dogs immediately ran in several directions, four of them squatting to poop (I watched, and the dog-sitter didn't even try to pick up any of the poop). When he saw me scrutinizing him (I kept waiting for him to pull out a plastic bag to scoop the poop), he started calling the dogs back. He had no control. Four or five dogs listened, but the rest just kept on running and playing. One had serious diarrhea (was he sick? Should other dogs have been near him?) and continued his business.

I think if you're interested in dog day care, you could ask what the dog/person ratio is? What kinds of activities are planned? What kind of control does the person have?

After observing Top Dog Daycare today, I would never consider sending my pooch there.

-I ALWAYS pick up my dogs poop and any other poop I see.

-I wouldn't take my 11 dogs to a non fenced park if I didnt have control of them.

-all my dog owners have to provide proof of current up to date vaccinations.

- anyone who's ever owned a dog has seem diarrhea. dogs have sensitive stomachs.

I wouldn't still be in business with hundreds of happy customers after 11 years if I didnt know what I was doing.

Top Dog is fantastic – I'm extremely happy with Top Dog Day Care and Darren. My dog always comes back tired and happy. He is much better behaved now at the dog park after the social interaction he gets with Top Dog. He is always happy to see Darren and jump in his van. My dog is usually somewhat suspicious of people AND jumping into cars, but he loves Darren and is eager to go every time.

I'm extremely upset someone would post the garbage about the Casino. I called the Casino security and this allegation is false.

WE COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT TOP DOG! – I have been a customer for 8 years and cannot recommend Darren and his service highly enough. For someone who actually uses the service for this long trust me and others who know and love Darren - he is the BEST with our treasured pets and they completely love him - Sam leaps to him and beelines to the van to get out and about when Darren arrives. I have given keys to Darren to my house (two houses now) to let Sam in and out every day and I could not trust him more - he is TOP NOTCH and provides excellent service, monthly billing statements, takes checks and if he does happen to miss a day ALWAYS calls and ALWAYS makes it up. WE LOVE DARREN AND TOP DOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Top Dog Daycare- Top Notch – These reviews stating our dogs are hanging out in a van at the casino are crazy. Darren has been looking after my dog Maggie for over a year now and you can’t fake that kind of love for animals. Maggie eagerly awaits his arrival (he is the only person other than me that does not bark at when he comes to the door) and can’t wait to get in the car- and she normally HATES car rides. She always comes home exhausted and happy- it would be very apparent if she had not gotten any exercise. I rely on city search reviews for accurate assessments- it really is too bad someone is using it to spread false information. Darren and Top Dog Daycare is the best- I would not entrust Maggie with anyone else.

They take your dog to a casino! – After parking at Snoqualmie Casino in Snoqualmie, which is far away from Ballard or Capitol Hill area, we heard dogs barking and fighting. We walked around following the sounds as did several other people and lo and behold we found all seven of them inside a Top Dog Doggie Daycare van. The front windows were down only about 1-2 inches and that was it for ventilation! The big dogs were picking on the little ones who were so scared. If your dog goes here give him or her a little purse full of money so the driver can go gamble it away.

I am being the victim of someone who is a disappointed customer, ex-employee or other dog daycare facility.

HORRIBLE dog care – While we were at the Sno Casino today, we heard tons of dogs howling, barking, whinning. To our amazement, we found a "Top Dog Daycare" van parked on the third floor with two front windows cracked open and inside were SEVEN dogs fighting/barking/whinning. We could not believe it. Other people came from all over the parking garage to see what all the noise was about too. We all assumed the dogs were clients. We all waited a half an hour - no sign of anyone. One woman in the group of people called them to tell them they were fighting and she was told to mind her own business - she must only be a snoop. An older gentleman called but got voicemail. UNBELIEVABLE. This is not what I'd expect of an animal care facility.

disappointed – Better suited to older dogs, rather than puppies that can be vulnerable to older dogs.

The best! – My dog is so excited when Darren comes to pick her up that she runs out the front door to greet him and I don't get to say goodbye to her before I leave on my trip! Sad for me, great for her.

Darren also takes her once a week so she can play and have fun. She comes home tired and happy. I recommend Darren and TopDog
