Caring, gentle owners – We have been sending our two terrier dogs to Airpet for a few years. It is affordable and reasonably located, and the proprietors are VERY flexible to changing schedules and pick-up times.
Our dogs would prefer that we not send them to any kennel at all, but they accept staying at Airpet. At the end of the trip, they are still excited to see us, but don't look as if they had been terrified while we were gone. I'm never going to get back the HAPPIEST dogs on the planet, but I can tell that the owner makes every single effort to comfort and care for them. I like that he can tell me very precisely how they were, and his descriptions let me know that he knows the subtle differences between my dogs' attitudes. The owner is truly gentle and caring, and has put my pets at ease.
True, the facility isn't the most gorgeous thing you've ever seen. True there's not really grass (who needs it in the winter). But, it's barren of toys because they get cleaned every night. I read one review that said the owner was in sweatpants- why is that bad?! Sounds like he was hard at work, snuggling, playing, or cleaning. He's a gem, and so is Airpet. Two paws up from abbey and lucy!
Quality place, caring proprietors – The genuine care these people show for your pet, combined with the sheer convenience of being so close to the airport makes this an easy choice for us. It's also very affordable. More important than anything, though, is that our boy Willy loves it. Highly recommended.
Most convenient for a busy schedule, only place in town offering pick up hours per your schedule not theirs! – Imagine my distress when finding my dog sitter cancelled last minute and I was left with finding a boarder on a Sunday! I spent over an hour attempting to contact a place that would be able to accommodate my little mini dachshund who had never spent a night at a boarder/kennel. Finally I stumbled upon the Airpet hotel in Seatac and found out that not only could I bring him in on Sunday at any time convenient to me, but I could also pick him up on a Sunday whenever was convenient to me as well! Everywhere else offered strict Monday-Friday 9-6pm type operations, which unfortunately would not be possible given my time constraints. I believe when people need to board a pet it does not usually occur at 8am on Monday, picking up by 5pm on Thursday type of schedule, but rather before and after travel, which can often happen in the middle of the night. And being a big fan of my dog, I like him to spend as little time away from me as possible.
Therefore, I was delighted to find this place and the man working (I believe it was the owner) made me rest assured he would be in good hands. Upon picking up my little pup he seemed refreshed and delighted to have spent a week in such good hands. I am taking another trip this weekend and am glad to know I will not have to worry about where my pet will stay. Although the location is slightly farther then downtown Seattle, I will drive a few extra miles to know my spoiled doggie will receive personal attention and fun playtime with workers and the other dogs who are there. If someone is looking for a place with fancy accommodations that a dog could care less about, perhaps this is not the place for them, but for a dog person that can pick up a happy pup knowing he was in good hands without having to fork over high prices, it is such a relief!
Not Worth The Money! – Took my dog here. After getting him home I discoved he was bit not once but twice. The two bites were never treated. I called and checked up on my dog a few times during the week he was there and told he's ok.
So I have to wonder if the owner ever noticed the two bite marks or never cared to clean them up. I know dogs fight and bite each other but to not inform the owner is just bad business and bad for the poor dog.
I think he takes too many dogs in to kep a good eye on them. When I came back to pick up my dog the place was a mess. Won't use them ever again.
Best Home Away From Home! – We've used Airpet Hotel several times since December 2007. Each time we do we're delighted by the care lavished on our sweet pointer by the owners and staff. She practically bolts from the car to get inside the building. She knows that she's going to get plenty of attention and social time. This is an active dog who needs extended exercise, beyond what most kennels provide. When we pick her up after a trip, she's happy and healthy. Lucky gives Airpet her highest rating: a four-paw play bow!!
Chuva the dog loves it here – Chuva has checked into Airpet Hotel a few times since August '07, for overnight, 3 days, and 1/2 day to get some play time in. She has been happy to see us when we pick her up, but also hesitates a bit when we leave, last week she actually wandered back. It's extremely comforting to know she is not so anxious to leave (but is still happy to see us). Thanks, Geoff and Chong!
Friendly helpful staff, great location and excellent dog care! – We have left our dog here a couple of times - and he loves it! He is always well exercised and socialized. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. The location couldn't be more convenient - right next to the airport. You can also leave your car at the location. They allow you to pick up or drop your dog 24/7 (no more additional night charges because your flight arrives late, or on a Sunday). There is nothing better than seeing your happy pet after a long flight! I'd recommend this place to anyone who needs to board their pet,
Excellent Treatment and Convenient Location – I've left my dog here a couple of times - I think he likes the pet hotel more than living with me! He's always well exercised and socialized when he stays there and they are very accommodating with his medicine. You can't beat the convenience right next to the airport. I'd recommend this place to anyone who needs a pet hotel and is taking a flight.
Convenient Pet Care for Air Travelers – I tried out the Airpet Hotel over the Christmas holiday. It's reasonably priced, conveniently located near the airport, and very flexible. My flight was slightly delayed and I wasn't able to pick up my dog until around 12:30am. He was ready when I arrived. I was so happy that I could pick him up when I arrived and that he could enjoy a good night's sleep in his own "bed." Overall, I was pleased with the service provided and I plan to use Airpet Hotel again in the future.
Convenient, Caring & Affordable – Our Aussie stayed here for 10 days recently because her grandma was in a car accident and couldn't take care of her this time. Plus, she had a bladder infection (we had to provide a statement from the vet that she wasn't contagious) and required meds twice a day. Two days later we called and she wasn't getting better. After calling the vet, they wanted to see her. Geoff at AirPet had her over there within hours and brought her back and kept us informed. It saved us from ending our vacation early and eased our minds as we realized that she was in such good hands. The dogs get an amazing amount of freedom to walk around within the large building following the owners around for much of the day. (This isn't a doggie prison!) All looked happy and well-cared for. It's just minutes from SeaTac Airport and you can drop off/pickup by appointment early and late. We had an early flight out and were able to drop her off at 6am; we got back at 10pm and picked her up at 11pm. She was in good shape and happy. We will not hesitate to use AirPet Hotel again. Co-owners Geoff and Chong were very nice and pleasant to deal with. Great job guys! We highly recommend the AirPet Hotel.
