  • 1. Nice job

    We've had our dogs groomed here after boarding and they've been great with them. They always look fabulous. Also, my in-laws have had their dog groomed here when they were visiting and were very happy with the way Seelah got them into their schedule at short notice.


    great people

    We've used this facility for the past 9 years or so--for boarding, obedience school, and grooming. \r\n\r\nI can't say enough good things about the boarding. We keep our dogs pretty well spoiled and are very choosy about where we board them. Seelah makes sure the individual needs of the dog are met. We've had an old dog there that they gave special treatment (administered prescribed meds, washed her bedding when she was incontinent from old age/ongoing illness...etc). They even put their own old carpet in the run when she was really arthritic so she could get up easier. And we've boarded our puppy there whom they gave extra playtime outside and extra one on one time with staff. \r\n\r\nI like the fact that the runs are all inside so the dog has human contact several times a day to get put outside in the fenced area. They aren't just left in an indoor/outdoor run to fend for themselves for extended periods like they are some places. The runs aren't plush, (no couches and tv here) but they are clean and large enough for our 90 pound dog. AC and heated. There is natural daylight coming in and a radio on during the day. Staff lives onsite, which is a plus. You can even pick your dog up on Saturday and Sunday after boarding.\r\n\r\nObedience training has also been great! \r\n\r\nWhen it's time for us to board our dogs, we feel confident they will be well cared for. They actually tug on the leash to get IN. Sometimes they walk away with the staff and don't even look back (that really says something for a Golden Retriever who is very attached to his owner!). After boarding, they still smell clean. We've never had any problems with fleas, illness, etc after a stay at Seelah.\r\n\r\nIt is a small-enough facility that they get to know the dogs personally. Great place! I'm glad we found them!!


    individual attention to dogs; clean & friendly; lots of trips outside


    you need to make your reservation quite a bit in advance during busy times
