Testimonials

 

We have been taking our dogs to Prairie Rose Boarding Kennels for the last several years. Amy and her staff are dedicated in providing absolute comfort and care to all of their furry guests. It gives me great peace of mind to know our dogs are being well taken care of. It’s their home away from home.

I’ve been taking my dogs to Prairie Rose for over 11 years and trust them immensely. They’ve seen the coming and going of Barclay and Cheli – and took the time to get to know all their special qualities and in old age, their special needs. The facility is friendly and very secure – important when you own a husky! Now they make sure Gideon is well cared for, groomed when he needs it, and spends loads of quality time playing with his friends at the kennel. My dogs have always stared longingly out the rear window of the car after I pick them up after their ‘stay-cation’ at Prairie Rose…what kind of cookies are you feeding them Amy?! Great staff, great kennel, great times for my furry ‘children’. I recommend them to anyone needing to kennel their pets.

We have tried 4 different boarding kennels in the Edmonton area. Once we took our 2 dogs to Prairie Rose, we have never gone anywhere else. When we pick up our dogs, they look happy and healthy. I sense that our dogs have been well taken care of and don’t feel like they have been punished or abandoned. This is a big contrast to other places where our dogs have lost their voice to excessive barking, and urinated upon our arrival showing apolegetic behaviour. At other kennels, one of our dogs would lose weight from being sad, while the other would gain weight from lack of exercise. Even though Prairie Rose Boarding Kennel is further away from Edmonton than other places, we still take our dogs here every time we go away. They have a great activity and feeding routine, and a wonderful grooming service as well. Also, they individualize the needs of the dogs upon owner’s request. Our minds are always at ease when we bring our dogs here. We highly this kennel to all our friends.

Thanks,

I wish to sincerely thank you and your staff at Prairie Rose Boarding Kennels for taking such excellent care of my two senior dogs while I was away. I liked the fact that they would be able to stay together in the same kennel and would be receiving lots of playtime and socialization in the large yard. I feel truly confident leaving my loved companions there knowing they will receive such excellent care. I have highly recommended your facility to any dog owners that I know, and will continue to do so.

Sincerely,
Jackie & George B.

I have used Prairie Rose Boarding Kennels regularly for the past several years and they have always treated me wonderfully and more importantly, my “kids” wonderfully as well. I have 2 cats and 1 dog that I take there 3 or 4 times a year. I just love the cat area, it has a large play place with toys and hideouts and a window for them to look out, too. I go on vacation knowing full well that my critters are in great hands and I have no worries, ever. Amy is a treat to deal with and accommodates my sometimes tardy arrival for pick up with good humour and understanding. All her staff are very professional and I rate the service as exceptional. I always tell the kitty’s they are going to see “Aunty Amy” when vacation time rolls around. I highly recommend Prairie Rose’s facility to everyone and I know your experience will be as positive as mine has been over the years. Happy Kennelling!

You can’t do better than to take your “best friends” to Prairie Rose, where they are looked after like they live there. Our dogs always look forward to seeing Amy and her staff and of course all their doggie buddies.

Just wanted to thank you for looking after our animals so well for the very long period of 17 days and allowing us to invade your space to come visit them regularly. You made their stay away from their home and loved ones very comfortable and they were always very relaxed. A sign of a good home away from home. Blaze is just fine after his jet lag and wobbly legs and all the animals are very happy at our new acreage, just loving all the open space. Jessie, who is usually so timid and scared of her leash has come right out of her shell and enjoys a leisurely stroll every evening in the neighbourhood on her lead.

Keep up the good work!

Kind Regards
The W. Family

My dogs love it – they get lots of attention. Friendly attentive staff, very accommodating especially with food and medication requirements. Grooming services have always been excellent.

Dear Amy and Staff of Prairie Rose Kennels,

Thank you for your help during my recent emergency hospital stay.You arranged for the dogs to be picked up at our home and put no pressure on my husband to pick the dogs up after it became clear that I needed extra time after the surgery.

I know that you went out of your way to accommodate us since you were (as usual) pretty much booked full. Our dogs feel at home at your kennel. Knowing that they were cared for by you and your excellent staff made it easier for me to focus on what was essential at the time: my recovery.

Thanks again,

Prairie Rose has always taken good care of our pets. They are competent, reliable and accessible and take a personal interest in every animal in their care.

We, at Beaverhill Veterinary Services have been fortunate to have in our community several pet boarding facilities that have always shown compassion and concern for the animals in their care.

Amy Porter of Prairie Rose Kennels is one of those people and repeatedly impress us with her personal attention to the care and consideration she shows those animals entrusted, by pet owners, into her facility.

Prairie Rose Boarding Kennels is Mika’s home away from home. Amy and her talented staff are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They have given us great advice on Mika’s diet and coat health. We are very lucky to have found a place that gives us the confidence that she is getting the highest quality of care and attention because she is a huge part of our family.

I have a Golden Retriever, “Ziva” who has had the opportunity to have a couple of holidays at Prairie Rose Boarding Kennels, north of Tofield, Alberta. Her experience while her mom was on her own holiday, was a very positive one. She even had a grooming/bath day on the day she was to be picked up. On the day I came to pick her up thinking that she would be falling over me, ’cause she missed me sooo much, was a disappointment. She practically ignored me and wanted attention from Amy and the staff. I would think that is her testament as to how much fun she had on her holiday. What makes Ziva happy makes me happy. I would and do recommend Prairie Rose Boarding Kennels to any pet owners that require a boarding facility for their pets’ vacation.
