I was certainly impressed with Birchwood Kennels. Not being from around here, I was desperately looking for a good quality kennel to board my two dogs with. After talking to David for about 30 minutes on the phone and asking him numerous questions, I made the trip down there for a visit. It was a clean, well-managed kennel with a wonderful staff. David spent over an hour showing me the facilty, answering my many questions and relieving any fears that I might have about boarding my dogs there in the future. So, when we did leave our dogs with them, I think I suffered more seperation anxiety about leaving them than my dogs did about being left there. HA! However, to help ease our minds, we were encouraged to call during our vacation to check up on them. Furthermore, when I went to pick them up ten days later, they looked well-rested, non-stressed and in wonderful condition. We will not hesitate to leave our dogs in their most capable hands for our next trip. Great job!!!!
After 5 years of being a dog owner and avoiding boarding my dogs, I finally started the search for a good kennel. My dogs are part of the family and as much as I wish I could take them everywhere with me, I can't. This being said, I took this boarding situation very seriously. I interviewed several facilities around town and was becoming very discouraged before a friend suggested Birchwood Kennels.
I was pleasantly surprised by Birchwood Kennels! The facility is clean (no odor or dinginess like I had seen at many other kennels), they play music throughout the kennels to help soothe the animals, the dogs have access to both the indoors and outdoors, and you can opt for extra playtime or walks!
The dogs started out with day boarding so that they could get used to being there, and we've worked up to an overnight stay. They just got home from their first night away from home, and they are doing great.
I've been really impressed by the manager, Dave, who has patiently answered all of my questions and phone calls. He is knowledgeable about the business and how to handle the animals. You can tell that he and the rest of the staff really care that the dogs are safe and comfortable.
I wouldn't trust just anyone with my dogs, and I'm thrilled to have found Birchwood!
Birchwood is a great place to have your dogs groomed and boarded. We have always had a great experience with them and they have a very friendly, personable staff to work with.
Professional and friendly staff. Love their jobs. My dog received great care on his recent visit. I would recommend to anyone.
I am a first time animal owner at 41 years old. I had no idea you could love a dog just like a child. My Cocoa is my baby and I had a very difficult time with the decision to leave her at a kennel when we took a trip recently. I was referred to Birchwood Kennels and I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am to have found them. The entire staff was wonderful and cared so much for Cocoa. I could tell how much each of them enjoyed being there within minutes of arriving. I cried when they took her from me, and they knew how uneasy it left me. I warned them of excessive calls they may receive from me, and I was assured that it was just fine to call and check on her whenever I felt like it. To my surprise, I only had to call twice because they let me know through pictures and videos that Cocoa was doing great and having so much fun. When I arrived to pick her up, she was soooo excited for about 15 seconds then she ran right back to the staff to play. This assured me of what I already knew from the tour and initial meeting-that Cocoa had been well taken care of! Please do not hesitate to call Birchwood Kennels and reserve a spot for your babies when you can't take them with you!
I pay a lot of attention to reviews and my opinion of a place is usually formed based on these written reviews/tips. Please read the reviews here carefully. There are many great reviews. Please notice that the only negative review has to do with money/payment and nothing to do with the care of the client's pet. All fees are posteed clearly by the check-in/out counter, and all charges are gone over before you drop off your baby. It makes me sad to read such a review when I know the love and care these people give to the pets in their care.
We came to Knoxville in December of 2010, and I was lucky enough to find Birchwood Kennels right away. Dave and Rob are very caring toward our Golden, Katie. She is our senior baby and they are always careful to give extra attention due to her age. She definitely gets special treatment at all visits, and as far as I can tell, so do all the other dogs. I would definitely recommend Birchwood Kennels to all. They are very accomodating. Also, kennel is always clean and friendly.
When only the best will do, go to Birchwood Kennels! – This is the only place I take my pets. They are the best in the business. Not just a business but actual pet owners themselves. Always super friendly, excellent staff.
Wonderful staff, great location! – I've been using Birchwoods services for several yrs now. My dogs have always received the best of care and love the staff. I recently lost one of mine to cancer, but the other still goes for boarding and just recently we started play days for him. When he realizes where he's at, the tail starts going and he forgets his mom, he just can't wait to see his friends. They know him by name, he's not just another dog! That means alot to me.
Their rates are very reasonable too.
excellent place to board your dog – We boarded our little chihuahua, who is very nervous, at this kennel earlier this year and were very pleased with the kindness, attention, and animal-loving attitude. We have booked this kennel again based on our experience last time. I would recommend this kennel and its staff to any pet owner.
