What Our Parents Have To Say.... If you don't believe us, then believe them!!!


From start to finish, this has been a most positive experience for us. From the moment I called to discuss possibly enrolling my fur baby, Duke, Sean was very friendly, informative, and willing to take the time needed to explain how everything works. Once we actually made the appointment, there was some hesitation at dropping him with people he didn’t know but the pictures and report card showed us that he adapted quickly and was very loved. We will be making this a more regular part of Dukes week!

Denise ~ Duke’s mom

Thank you for a wonderful haircut for Addie!  She looks beautiful !  We were so impressed with your staff and the facility, thank you so much!

Cindy ~ Addy’s mom

Cody is always excited to visit It’s a Dog’s Life.  The staff is always very friendly and genuinely seem to enjoy working with the animals. While on vacation I looked forward to seeing the daily report cards to see what fun Cody was having with the other dogs on site.

Gaye ~ Cody’s mom

Very happy with the service from It’s A Dog’s Life…as always.

You guys have very caring staff and that are clearly animal lovers, I always feel extremely happy leaving TJ there and I know he enjoys it.

Derek ~ TJ’s dad

Julianna ~ Knuckle’s mom

Charlie gets excited whenever he goes to It’s A Dog’s Life.  He recently ruptured his ACL and is being treated for it.  Dana and the staff at IADL took special care of him while he was in for his grooming.  Charlie is a Wire Hair Fox Terrier and when his grooming was finished, he could compete with Asta in the Thin Man (google it).   Extremely well done!

Patrick ~ Charlie’s dad

The entire staff is beyond Amazing!!

Gloria ~ Nyla’s mom

Our first time boarding our pup and we had a great experience. We felt at ease knowing our furbaby was in good hands.

Best play date Jase has had in a long time!

Loves his new furry friends and appreciates having interaction with someone other than us humans at home that he’s been stuck with for the past year.😷

He was one tuckered out pup when he got home which to me constitutes a great day full of lots of fun.

Thanks to everybody there.🐾

Annie ~ Jase’s mom

Lexi can be a bit timid at first, but everyone on staff does such a great job with the dogs under their care that she always leaves super happy and looking great.

Bryan ~ Lexi’s dad

Erika ~ Indy’s mom

06/28/2021:  We are very satisfied with our services at it’s a dog life. We have used them numerous times when we need to board our dog, Lily. She always comes back happy and that’s a piece of mind for us when we are away

Marla ~ Moxie’s mom

05/29/2021:  The best grooming and attention towards our little Nikki. Dana is sweet and super conscientious and took care of every little detail. I recommend “It’s A Dogs Life” for grooming and pet vacations

Steve ~ Nikki’s dad

05/29/2021:  Because Pixie had been aggressive to other dogs in the past (while they were leashed), I was VERY reluctant to take her to your facility where she would freely interact with other dogs. She has been a CHAMP with your Team and your Resort!

I have even considered taking Pixie to a dog park now – because she seems fine off leash! Thanks for giving me and my family the peace of mind that she can interact with other dogs.

We LOVE the Dawg Cams and the ability to watch her do just fine. We really appreciate the Report Cards

Andrea ~ Pixie’s mom

05/26/2021:  I appreciated so much the caregivers that kept an eye on Charlie, he’s not used to being boarded and I know he was a bit hesitant in the playrooms.  I checked out the wonderful doggie cams you had and everyone was so good with him.  Thanks again

Lisa ~ Charlie’s mom

05/22/2021:  Excellent caring staff

Kathy ~ Theodore’s mom

05/16/2021:  Is it possible to make special arrangements to pick up a dog after 7pm?  The staff is very friendly and caring about dogs. Our dog has social issues, very shy and scared, and the staff worked with him. We are looking forward to bringing our dog back to It’s A Dog’s Life once a week so he can learn to be sociable. Also we are going on a week vacation and we know we can trust our dog will be in good hands boarding here

Daryl ~ Jack’s dad

Shaina ~ Gilmore’s mom

05/03/2021:  I can’t say enough good things about your business!  Starting with Shawn (Sean?) who was incredibly friendly, professional, and an incredible asset to your company – having him as the first contact for clients/new customers is a GREAT move!  He was super attentive, reassuring, and remembered every concern I had from our first phone conversation to my dog’s first appointment, and made me feel comfortable with your grooming process and your people.

Next – Dana!!  She’s a great groomer and was also quite professional, I truly appreciated her attention to detail with his coat, and her care/concern for Murphy’s anxieties (and mine!).  I also really liked that she walked Murphy out to me to tell me how the grooming went, I could see the difference in his behavior in just the first visit.

Thank  you for your business philosophy, from how you care for pets, to how you treat pet parents, to the employees you hire (with the same philosophy!).  I’ve been telling every pet parent I know about you!

Gina ~ Murphy’s mom

05/02/2021:  The girls love it and that make me happy

Mary ~ Sadie

04/30/2021:  The staff is very aware of any problems my senior dog is having and contact me immediately with any problems with suggestions and information.

I can worry about her less because of these super dog loving people

Shariee ~ Scout’s mom

03/24/2021:  I had a super great experience when speaking with Lisa before our Greet and Treat, but I was slightly disappointed when I came to pick Moose up and the girl at the desk seemed pretty unenthusiastic. I was excited to hear about how Moose did and her response was, “no news is usually good news”. Which is good to know, but I would have liked to hear a more caring response about my pet and any specifics.

Megan ~ Moose’s mom

Elizabeth ~ Auggie’s mom

03/10/2021:  I liked how we were welcomed and the help from your trainer, Katrina, is great!  My Bindi is a very shy little girl and needs some socialization.  With the help of your crew and Katrina I’m hoping she will come out of her shell more.  Thank you for what you do!!

Already booked another day for him. I look forward to the weather being better so he’ll get to go outside more for potty breaks. Being that he is a puppy, he needs to go out more often!

Sherri ~ Cooper’s mom

02/23/21:  Staff is excellent! Highly recommend!

Anne ~ Hamish’s mom

2/20/21:  So far so good.  Lucy enjoyed day care; I am very confident that she will enjoy being boarded.

Great experience from my first phone call when just thinking about using them, to actually booking with them on an urgent basis, to drop off, to emailed updates and videos of my puppy while we were away, to grooming, to pick up! Great place!  They care about me as a puppy mommy and about my puppy!

Christine ~ Coconut Cream’s mom

We would like to see more play time for our dog.  Obviously COVID limits what we can see inside the facility, but it would be nice to see where our dog is when he is not on camera.  Not sure if you could do covid friendly tours?

Laura K ~ Mack’s Mom

My Shiba Chloe loves going here to get her bath. She is relaxed when they take her in and smells great when she’s done.

Maryann B ~ Chloe’s Mom

Chloe had a great first day of daycare!  She has not had a lot of experience playing with other dogs, but you did a great job acclimating her and she had a good day.  We will be back soon!

Beth B ~ Chloe’s Mom

Always impressed by the great care my pup gets!

Gail S ~ Kirby’s Mom

They treat your dog like their own!

Donald B ~ Bear’s Dad

Love all the posted pics and report cards and Jameson loves all the love and hugs🐾❤️

Lisa R ~ Jameson’s Mom

Well groomed.  He looks like a classic Wire Haired Fox Terrier.  We are extremely pleased.

Patrick S ~ Charlie’s Dad

I have a Shih Tzu puppy and wasn’t sure how he should be groomed, but he needed a bath, trim and nails trimmed.  I submitted a question about it on a Saturday night, not expecting a response until the next week.  They responded within an hour! I made an appointment with one of their stylists.  She came in to work just for Ruger. She took the time she needed so that Ruger felt comfortable with his first experience at a groomer. She did a great job.  He looks amazing. Ruger now has a new best friend there!  🙂

Christina R ~ Ruger’s Mom

Dana was great and a very skilled groomer!

Olivia S ~ Lucy’s Mom

My pup always receives excellent care!  Amazing staff!

Gail S ~ Kirby’s Mom

Casper is so happy to have a safe and fun place to go.  I love the staff!!

Tammy R ~ Casper’s Mom

Bear seemed very happy and looked like he was having fun when I was watching the cameras! He came home tired, which is what we wanted! I’m looking forward to bear spending some days there!



Katie M ~ Bear’s Mom

Very friendly staff and very clean environment. They have been great with my dog’s separation anxiety and she is doing well there.

I would love to see some video taken of the older dogs who don’t chase balls and run about. We like to see how our more sedentary pets are doing during the day too.

Mary L ~ Snap’s Mom

You did an outstanding job for our Gabby!  She was a mess and we knew it before bringing her in and you made her look like the beautiful dog she is without judgment as it had been a few years since she had the few extra dollars for the professional treatment.  Thank you!

Rik J ~ Gabby’s Dad

Lisa, Alexa, Haylee, and everyone have been great so far.  I’m excited for this experience with Minnie.  🙂

Lena N ~ Minnie’s Mom

Dana always does a great job

Walka W ~ Jax’s Mom

The staff here always take such great care of our boys!!

Maggie M ~ Sitka’s Mom

The entire staff really gets to know your dog on an intimate level and it’s obvious that they take great care of our furry friends.

Kaitlin P ~ Bozeman’s Mom

Charlie came in for grooming and he looks great!  Our regular groomer was out sick and Charlie was getting too shaggy.  It’s A Dog’s Life came to our rescue!  Charlie loves coming for play sessions as well.

Patrick S ~ Charlie’s Dad

We love It’s a Dog’s Life. Minnie has a great time and feels loved.

Smita Joshi ~ Minnie’s Mom

Gunnar (our dog) and our entire family love this place!  It is like a second home for Gunnar.  Gunnar attends day care 1-2 times a week, and we also use their boarding and grooming services.  We know our dog is in great hands.  Gunnar just got back from a grooming appointment.  He is a difficult dog to groom and he looks and smells fantastic!  We really feel like they love each and every dog that they care for!

Rachel R ~ Gunnar’s Mom

Molly looked amazing when we brought her home!💖 Thank you Dana!

Nikki H ~ Molly’s Mom

looked so fresh and cute loved the Christmas themed bandana

Elizabeth E ~ Kyler’s Mom

My Dog Loki absolutely loves going to daycare and everyone takes such great care of him!!!

Laurie N ~ Loki’s Mom

The staff seemed to care about her interaction (or lack of) with  the other dogs and suggested a more mellow setting for her instead of being with the more energetic and younger dogs. I feel better about leaving her in a place that caters to her needs this way. Also, watching on the cams, it seemed a very clean and happy place for dogs.

Mary L ~ Snaps Mom

Sookie looked beautiful as always!

Everyone was very friendly and I loved the report cards and watching our puppy on the live camera.  It was nice to know he was in good hands while we were away.

A Yee ~ Henry’s Mom

Henry Y

I was nervous leaving my pup as he’s never attended doggie camp and he’s a senior boy.  Everyone and I mean everyone is amazing. I’ve noticed he’s much calmer at home (I think he’s exhausted from his doggie activity).  This has been the best thing I could do for him.  We both look forward to coming back again and again. 😀

Thank  you to all of the caring and friendly staff.

There seems to be great communication at this daycare, I hope they keep it up. I’m not as worried about boarding Lucy, if we ever go on vacation, knowing that I have a place like this to take her.

It was a great first visit experience for Eastwood!

J Bayliss ~ Eastwood’s Dad

Eastwood B

I am always so happy with the service I receive from It’s   a Dogs ‘s Life  Resort  and Spa in Wixom. They take care of my dogs as if they were their own. Every time I have them groomed I can’t believe how perfect they look & smell.   I’ve tried to groom them myself & the results are not even close & my patience wears thin. I know my dogs are a handful & I feel so comfortable knowing they will be well taken care of.

Any time I have boarded them they are always super excited to get in the building. That’s a great sign they are being treated awesome & can’t wait to see everyone! It also makes me feel so much better about leaving my babies when I can watch them on the video cam playing.

K Dowdy ~ Sage’s Mom

Thank you so much for taking such great care of Tucker while we were out of town, everyone is so accommodating and friendly, we very much appreciate it!

J Martin ~ Tucker’s Mom

You have taken great care of Bailee and her friends.  It is reassuring to check in while out of town by watching how much fun she is having on the cameras.  I looked forward to the daily report card which is something I’ve never received from any other boarding facility.

I can tell the staff truly loves what the do!!

M Pitts ~ Bailee’s Mom

Bailee P

I loved how the staff sent me pictures of Foxy!

Dedriauna Walker

Foxy W

It seemed like Pixie lost a little bit of weight when she was there. It is probably difficult to monitor the weights of the dogs, however she was there for almost 2 weeks. That will definitely not deter us from bringing her back – you guys are fantastic! We loved the free Meet and Greet, to make sure it was a good fit, and the webcams are invaluable! guess I’m also not sure what happens on Saturdays and Sundays. Does she mostly stay in her suite, and get let out three or four times a day?

Thanks again for making it so easy for us to be comfortable with her experience there.

A Engler ~ Pixie’s Mom

Pixie E

LeBron loves you guys 💙🏈

M Pedersen ~ Lebron’s Mom

Lebron P

Everyone was so friendly from the moment I called about the facility.  Nikki met Bailee and me at the car and answered all of my questions.  She even sent me videos of the facility since tours are not available at this time.

I was blown away be the professionalism of the staff.  Your website is very detailed and played a big part in our decision to board Bailee.  She had a great time and is looking forward to boarding next week.

M Pitts ~ Bailee’s Mom

Bailee P

I really appreciated that the facility wasn’t overcrowded. It seemed to be a comfortable environment for all of the dogs that were participating In the day care! I loved being able to watch the doggie cameras too. However, Camera #1 waS not working and I wasn’t able to view anything on it. He loved his ice cream treat and the staff was very friendly.

K Pyles ~ Bozeman’s Mom

I’m so happy I found this place! My dog is always so excited when he realizes where we are,  he gets so happy to see all the girls! And he’s more relaxed at home and doesn’t chase my cats.  Its made a huge difference in his behavior. Thank you!!!!

A Madden ~ Harvey’s Mom

Harvey M

The experience was great from start-to-finish. Super friendly staff on the phone, during check-in, and dropoff. I checked in on the doggy cams more often than I care to admit – there were so many wagging tails! The staff looked like they were always enjoying themselves and kept the area continually cleaned and organized, even with a gaggle of dogs in tow. At one point we watched the staff attempt to adjust the placement of one of the play structures, just as a dog hopped on top adding to her load. She stopped to take a break, laughing as the dogs started licking her face : ) Redd will definitely return for some play and likely some boarding.

M Brautnick ~ Redd’s Mom

Redd B

We have been having issues with separation anxiety with Birdie. It has taken a lot of stress off us, having a place to take her while we work.  Birdie loved her day at daycare.

J Matschikowski ~ Birdie’s Mom

The staff was great when I called in to see how my dog was doing.  They put all my concerns at ease and seeing my dog in the videos they send was also very helpful.

Thanks for doing a great job grooming King & Rocco.  They were both happy doggies when I picked them up & looked adorable!

C Lewis ~ Rocco’s Mom

Rocco L

My husband and I were so pleased with the facility and staff. It takes special people to take care of your family pet and have the dogs feel so attached to the daycare staff member.  We really enjoyed  watching Molly via webcam  following dogs and attendant around. I wish she would have played a little more and enjoy the step climbers.  We felt that she did good for her first visit and know she will grow out of her shyness. I am happy we can rely on a daycare/boarding facility where we can be reassured she will be taken care of.  I wish covid was not going on so we could see whole facility. Would love to see the suites where she will stay when boarding.  Making finishing plans for her home away from home when we go on vacation.  So many places do not allow pets so it makes it bitter sweet.  Definitely bragging about her stay to family and friends. Thank you to the whole staff.

A Dooley ~ Molly’s Mom

We were very happy with our 2 dogs week-long stay.

There is so much love and attention that I could watch on the doggie cams. The place smells very clean and you are not overwhelmed with barking dogs whenever you walk thru the door. The Owner and others are very pleasant. We will be back!

The day after I picked the dogs up, they kept looking at me like they were bored to death while just laying around the house.

Patricia L – Charlotte & Casey

They treat my dog as their own.

You take wonderful care of Shiloh! I really appreciate the extra effort!

Kathryn C – Hamilton

t’s truly like dropping our furry baby off with a family who cares.  I am extraordinarily impressed with the professionalism, genuine kindness and astute insight into the behavior and happiness of our most vulnerable family member. Both the owner Lisa ( who is exceptional at inspiring comfort and security) and her talented, caring absolutely Wonderful staff who on a daily basis show compassion, patience and care with expertise and thoughtful affection that is admirable in any profession but is essential in pet care!! As a customer for almost 2 years I can with complete confidence recommend Its a Dog’s Life for your pet care.


Gloria M – Nyla

My dog got kennel cough, no one noticed

Kim P – Remington

We really appreciate all you did for Benji during his stay. However, I just took him for a follow up at his vet since he wasn’t getting any better…the cone that the Walled Lake vet gave him was much too short and he could easily reach his incision. I have a feeling this was the reason he got so much worse in the last few days.

He’s now on the mend with a larger cone and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that this whole ordeal will be behind us soon!

Take care,

Jenny K

Jenny K – Benji

We will definitely be back.

Haircut looks great!

Davinci looks really nice…I would have probably wanted him trimmed a little bit more with the feathering for the summer but I can bring him back later in July. It was convenient for the drop off and pick up. I am glad to see the staff wearing masks. 🙂

The groomer did a great job with our dogs hair cut! Lexi looked super cute, very soft and fluffy, and she was one happy dog when we picked her up. The groomer and staff members were extremely courteous and polite. This was our first time using the grooming services and we will definitely be coming back!   As well as giving recommendations to all of our friends with pets. Prices were very reasonable and being able to have a credit card on file made everything extra convenient

Bryan M – Lexi

I have never boarded pets before so I was leery  Once  I walked in the door, I couldn’t have felt more at home so I knew my puppies would be well taken care of.  I’ve been using theIr services for a year now and couldn’t be happier. From daycare to grooming they are amazing!!! I even had to leave my puppies for a week and I always felt comfortable that they would be happy & properly taken care of.  I love that I can see them on the puppy cams when they’re in day care 😃

Kris D – Kai & Sage

I was very disorganized when I dropped Sumo off  (& running late for the airport), but the girl who helped me was great!  It didn’t bother her at all and she made me feel much more at ease.

Also, Sumo had to have some ointment given and had a cone, but that was no issue.

Sumo seems to really enjoy his time. He will definitely be back.

Thanks again!

Sumo ~ Lynne K

This is my number 1 daycare facility so far.  I haven’t been able to use this facility as my primary daycare yet.  This is because it’s 16 miles away from home, but 1 mile away from work.  Hopefully this will change in the future gradually.  I love the website to make the reservations.  Also the friendly faces when I leave my dog and when I pick her up at the end of the day.  My dog is always very happy when she leaves this daycare and seems like she had a ton of fun.  Also my wife really enjoyed the small video and scorecard at the end of the visit..  Kudos, great job!

Sweet BayBay ~ Mario M

It’s a Dog’s Life is the BEST. My puppy loves going to see his friends and the staff. We are so happy we found a dog daycare that is kind and cares about their customers!

Bailey has food allergies and the Team is always willing to help to make sure she is well taken care of. Love the staff as I know Bailey is loved and taken care of as if she was their own pet!

Bailey ~ Don Demetrakeas

I was nervous about leaving Daisy because she has separation anxiety.  But when we picked her up and started for the outside door, she turned and wanted to go back to the door she came through to greet us. That tells me that she really enjoyed the time she was there and wanted one more chance to stay and play!  We love all the staff and will never consider leaving Daisy any other place then “It’s A Dog’s Life!!!

Daisy Mae ~ M & L Ruble

My dog and I have highest praise for this facility.  I have used others and this is by far the best doggie day care I have used.  The staff is kind and tolerant of all the dogs that come in.

Eldy ~ L Papke

Staff is always friendly and helpful.  I am pleased that they interact with and are caring towards Nico.

Nico ~ J Brees

Awesome !!

Remington ~ K Piacentini

This was our first visit to a boarding facility for our beloved Griffin. It was a fantastic experience!! He had a great time and was exhausted from all the play/attention. It was so awesome to be able to check in via video. The hospitality was perfect and the love they showed Griffin was obvious and appreciated! Will definitely use them again! Thank you!!

Griffin ~ C Lasher

Staff was VERY friendly and helpful.  Louie had a great time and I knew he was well taken care of during his stay.  I will definitely bring him back many times for both daycare and boarding.

I will be bringing Eddie back for both Daycare and grooming. I think it’s good for him to interact with the other dogs and hopefully the more he’s around them, the more comfortable he’ll be around other dogs. I was very pleased with the staff. Everyone was so friendly and made me feel like he was in great hands.

Eddie ~ A Bates

Very friendly staff. My dog loves it there

Bear ~ D Brunner

Thank you for taking such great care of Koba and knowing we could enjoy our vacation knowing he was in great hands🐾.  Already I have recommended you to a friend on our What’s happening in South Lyon Facebook page!

Koba ~ D Meadows

Staff was awesome and our very nervous Great Dane had a great experience.  I will be telling all my family and friends about this place.  Grateful our veterinarian recommended it !

Lebron ~ M Pedersen

Super friendly staff.  Our 2 dogs look forward to visiting Its a Dog’s Life.  They have never gotten sick or had an issue here.

Frankie ~ N Karr

One of the things that I noticed and that I like most is that all the staff know the dogs by name. A dog and the owner come to the door and I hear “hi Zoe or hi Luna “  I think that is wonderful. Of course, it helps to know the owners but I love the fact that they know the dogs by name     My baby made lots of new friends and enjoyed her week away at training. I also like that they have a trainer right there at the facility.  Overall I am very happy with the decision and I know that Addison is being cared for adequately

Addison Ivy ~ A Walton

Staff is very friendly and welcoming. They are very caring towards our little guy. Nice upgrades to the facility too.

Nico ~ J Brees

Rosie can’t wait to come  back. 

Rosie ~ M Schloss

I’ve been using this place pretty much since it opened almost 15 years ago. The new owner has modernized everything from policies (no aggressive dogs accepted), to the reservation system (web-based), to the lobby but has not lost the animal-loving human touch. Prices are competitive.

Geyser – M Chachich

Meraki Training – Alexa White is our Trainer at It’s A Dog’s Life Resort & Spa.

Alexa has really helped my dog adjust his behavior AND she has been amazingly patient with us as owners.  We definitely see the positive difference in his behavior and she has helped us do a 180 in our understanding of him and reading his needs/signals.

Archi ~ A Lambert

Clean facility, caring staff and my dog gets so excited when we pull into the parking lot. He has the best time playing with his friends.

River ~ J King

We were very nervous about leaving our new puppy, but the staff spent time talking with us an it was clear they truly cared about the dogs.

I recommend It’s a Dog’s Life because our dog has done well at every visit, the staff know him by name and give him a lot of attention and affection.

Our 2 dogs are getting up in age (almost 10 and 11 years old), but they still love getting out for exercise and socialization.  They always get excited about seeing their friends at It’s A Dog’s Life Resort & Spa.  (more…)

Desi ~ M Mitchell

Keep up the good work.

Dwillard ~ J & S Wagenheim

Rosie can’t wait to come  back.

Rosie ~ M Shloss

My dogs are a handful but I know they get the care and attention they need (and am confident all the dogs do).  I have had great experiences at this facility throughout its different management teams. I am grateful that Lisa is continuing a great facility. I can trust my “special needs dogs” are not going to get themselves into avoidable trouble.  Throughout my dogs issues IaDL has always come thru with pairing or recommending the right resources to help him thru his issues.

Archi ~ A Lambert

Luna has the best time there and with everyone! 🙂

Rollo – A Brittin

Benny had a great visit.  It was fun to watch him on video while we were away.  It seemed like Benny was having a fun time playing with the other dogs.  Thank you.

Benny – Scott Kamen

We boarded our pup Gunner for a long trip over Christmas and New Years. It was the first time we had been away from him since we got him and my husband and I were both very nervous.

It was awesome to get Pupdates on him while we were gone, and be able to see him playing with his new friends.

We will continue to take him for a day of doggy daycare here and there- he loved it 🙂

Gunner – Julie McKinley

You take such great care of my son, thank you all

River – Jamie King

An amazing facility with a  professional and caring staff… personalized attention given to every dogs sensitivity and needs! A great place which offers  feedback on each visit, encouragment with any issues and solutions  and consultation offered if ever needed.

Annie – Barbara Hassan

What a great business. I needed last minute boarding for my sweet but extremely shy beagle. Lisa worked with me to help me board my dog. Every other place was fully booked in town, and I’m so glad they were. Lisa went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable about leaving my dog for 2 weeks. Every day I was sent a report card and could watch a live feed of tia (my dog) playing. Before committing, I was offered a free trial day to make sure it was a good fit. They were so kind and loving to my beyond timid dog. My dog came home from the trial day exhausted and happy. They were so accommodating.

While out of the country for 2 weeks, I was able to relax knowing my dog was in great hands. I will definitely be bringing tia here for boarding and daycare in the future. She came home happy, and even bathed with a nail trim.

Thank you all for loving my dog while I was away!

Tia – Emily Peralta

I have been a client for years and it has only gotten better. Wonderful warm atmosphere and great staff. Would highly recommend.

Eddie – Julie Ashworth

Friendliness of staff is one of the primary reasons I keep returning

Elsa – Justin Smith

Long time clients.  Could not be more pleased with the care given Charlie.  He adores going for daycare and gets even more excited when he sees we have “packed his >bag” for a stay.

Charlie – Patrick Schaul

Very fun and professional crowd

Lily & Stanley – Andrea Dirette

You’d think that my dog has won the lottery every time she goes to daycare.  The smile on her face when we pull in and the excitement in her little booty is all I need to see to know I made the right decision by taking her here !!

Lucy – Audra Ayres

Great place.  My border collie can’t wait to play when we arrive.  Staff is friendly and even if we do not come for a while they remember my dogs name.  My dog can be timid but when she sees the staff she immediately goes to them with confidence and tail wagging.

Oreo – Bob & Cindy Kraft

We really are very happy with “It’s A Dog’s Life” pet resort and spa!  The staff is wonderful, the facility is well kept, Ryley has a great time playing with his friends, always gets so excited when we pull into the drive.  Love having the webcams to watch him interact.  We feel very comfortable leaving him there.

Ryley – Faith Passalacqua

Love all the new changes!

Rocco – Abney Scott

I was a little nervous when I first brought my dog in for a full day of day care, but Lisa quickly changed my mind. The whole staff is kind, caring and treats my dog as if he were their own. Being able to check in on him via the webcams is a comforting feeling too. Bringing my dog to It’s A Dogs Life was the best decision for our family. Every week he gets excited to go!

Easton – Lauren Lollo

Charlie is excited to come every time.  He is obnoxious on Wednesday when we do not bring him.

Charlie – Patrick Schaul

We enjoyed the reports and picture of Brandi while she was boarding for a week.

Thank you to everyone who took part in Brandi’s care.  She is an old girl who needs special care and lots of love.

Brandi – Robert Theisen

Best place ever for our Sugar. When she stayed at home alone, she tore the place up because she’s a bundle of nerves. But ever since she started coming here, she’s a whole new, happier, much more relaxed dog.

Sugar – Thea & Chris Delisle

My dog loves to come to day care ! She loves the staff ! I know she’s treated well when I pick her up and she runs to the care givers before her momma lol ! Great place !!!

Mercedes – Shauna Willette

My dog loves his visits with your staff, he can’t wait to get there.  We love the fact that he’s worn out from all the fun he has  with his buddies all day.  The place is fabulous!

Dwillard – James & Susan Wagenheim

Very happy with everything.  I drop her off and know she will be taken care of.

Zoey – Renee Krop

Great place! Lisa is super friendly! Full of energy and I know that’s exactly how she is with our fur family! Our pup is sometimes a handful, but Beth and the others know exactly how to handle her! Love this place, and I’m loving the new upgrades!

Hanki – Cara Parks

Gunnar absolutely loves coming to play.  We take him 1-2 times a week.  We trust the staff completely to care for Gunnar.  Thanks

Gunnar – Rachel Ridley

It’s A Dog’s Life is a wonderful place. I know that my dogs are safe and well cared for. The staff are friendly and truly seem to love working here. Lisa has done a great job and is making it one of the BEST dog care facilities !

Gizzy & Lily – Dan Sutton

Ivy has a great time. I love receiving the report card with info & pictures of her day.

Izzo came home and slept all day just like my other dog used to after boarding.  I’m sure that he had plenty of exercise and was well cared for.  He looked and smelled great after his bath.

Thank you very much!  Glenn McClure DVM
