  • 1. Brizes Do Not Care Anymore

    by: justkim789

    We have used Brizes many times over the years, but 2008 will be the last. First of all, I got yelled at because we dropped our dog off at 6:45 (they close at 7:00). The handler practically ripped the dog off of me and dragged him away. When we picked him up he was scabbed with loss of hair around his neck and with a significant loss of weight. Barb Brizes barely looked at me (only to tell me how much I owed) and not a thank you or have a good day. Her ego has always been big but I think it's way over top now.

    Pros

    Nice Setting

    Cons

    Service Terrible and Staff Ignorant

  • 3. Dog always happy to go there

    by: cruncher

    My dog is always excited to see the staff and they greet him by name. He is happy when I pcik him up and always in good condition. The facilities appear to be in good condition. They give him his medication. They have options for walks, play time and swims. I have not had a problem in the 10 yeas that I have taken my dog there.

    Pros

    friendly caring staff, quality facilities

    Cons

    none

  • 4. Great Place

    by: Joesie

    I had to kennel my dogs there after a fire at my home. They let me visit one on one with my dogs whenever I wanted which I thought was a super nice thing to do.

    Pros

    Very professional

    Cons

    None

  • 5. Super Place

    Take such good care about your dog / pet

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to get an appointment

  • 6. Great choice for "Doggie Camp"

    by: marthar

    We were referred here by two of my coworkers - and have been really pleased. Our dog has stayed here several times and loves it - he is always excited when we arrive there, even though he usually hates to leave us. \n\nI have been very impressed with how well the staff got to know him during his stays. Whenever I've called to check in, the staff always know exactly which dog I'm asking about, knows how he's doing and what he's done that day. \n\nI do like to have him groomed on the morning when we are going to pick him up though, because otherwise he smalls a bit too much like "kennel."

    Pros

    Great service, caring staff who get to know the dogs during their stay and very reasonably priced.

    Cons

    A little bit out-of-the way if you live in Pittsburgh

  • 7. Very clean

    by: stevier

    I have not boarded a dog here but would just like to say we went through the kennels and were very impressed how clean they were. We were here for a consultation on our shelter dog. This is a very nice place where I would not think twice before boarding a pet.

    Pros

    Nice for dogs

    Cons

    None

  • 8. The friendliest and most gentle

    by: leighceciliaj

    I live in Peters Township so Elizabeth is about a 40 minute drive for me. I drive that 40 mins just to go see one of the groomers Dave. He understands that your dogs are nervous and hate baths and is very gentle and loving towards them. My one dog is 16 1/2 and has bad arthritis so he takes that in to consideration when grooming her and brushing her. Plus they have this cool drying bin that my dogs absolutely love they don't want to leave!! If there's any kind of a wait they will give them their own personal kennel, which is big and roomy and goes indoor and out, with water and treats if you want!

    Pros

    They are very gentle and kind

    Cons

    They do get a lot of business

  • 9. A+ and a continued customer

    by: BXRchic

    I have taken my dog here on three separate occasions and I have no complaints with the level of customer care or the pricing.\n\nThe only thing that I wish they did different, was if they could allow potential clientele to view the actual boarding/kennel facilities.\n\nthey do offer a doggy swimming pool and things of that nature that are easily viewable, but I was curious about the condition of the kennel area and the size of the run that my dog would have.

    Pros

    Inexpensive, convenient location, nice staff

    Cons

    Wish you could view kennel area
