I like the airport location of Camp Bow Wow. I would not recommend the NW location.

I have had two bad experiences with Rob Cary and never used them again. Among other things (in addition to my bad experiences), I requested that my dog get an extra play time every day, and they couldn't do it because they were so short staffed. I mean....I was willing to PAY for an extra play time as my dog was a puppy. And they didn't have the staff. Unreal.

I also don't like how they clean their kennels. It's kind of stressful on the dogs (it's done with hoses, etc). My kennel here in Virginia uses a hospital grade cleanser. This is not noisy and also does not create a situation where mold and mildew grow. My list could go on.....but I'll stop.

Wagmore in Boerne! Not cheap, but they take good care of my Rottweilers. Have been using them for 3 years.

When I was searching for places a couple of years ago, I saw horrific reviews for Rob Cary and decided to avoid them like the plague. I've heard good things about their training, though.

Becker has always treating my dog well, so really seems to enjoy going there to.

We've done Camp Bow Wow and Pawderosa Ranch. Both by the airport and we've been VERY happy with both.
