    I do not understand how this place is still in business. My experience was absolutely horrible, starting with the attitude of the owner. I noticed it the first day I dropped off my dogs but thought if everything else goes well, I can overlook the attitude because what’s most important is how my dogs are cared for.

    My two Rhodesian Ridgebacks were boarded there three times before we were told we’re not allowed to come back because my dog jumps up. That’s what puppies do. My boy is not even two years old and she knows we’ve been working with a trainer. Apparently only perfect dogs are allowed to board there.

    When I picked up my dogs on the third visit, Stacey is just standing at the gate, me on one side and her and my dog on the other. My dog is going absolutely bananas because he can’t get to me while she stands there, lecturing me about how my dogs’ jumping is unacceptable. I finally had to tell her to let my dog through! If she cannot be attentive to my dog while he’s standing right in front of her, no way is he getting any attention in his kennel. Then she tells me I’m greeting my dogs wrong in the lobby which is none of her damn business. Stacey starts barking orders that I am not allowed to let my dogs jump on me at home and they’re not allowed on my furniture. OMG did she just say that??? That is one of the most arrogant and disrespectful things I have ever heard come out of someone’s mouth. HOW DARE YOU tell me how to raise my dogs in my own home. Someone needs to remind Stacey she runs a BOARDING facility, not a training facility.
    My boy was deemed “special needs” because he had to be supervised in the play area because he supposedly was looking like he was going to jump the fence. So I had to pay an extra $10 per day for him. Why are you leaving dogs outside unsupervised anyway?? You should be out playing and interacting with them and watching them. This should be STANDARD CARE, not an extra charge. Otherwise they are getting absolutely no human interaction during their stay, just time alone in a kennel and then time alone in the play yard.

    They didn’t even disclose that my boy was labeled “special needs” when I went to pay my bill, which was $40 more than I was expecting. That’s when they casually mentioned it. That’s totally unacceptable. You don’t charge someone without first disclosing fees. A reputable business would not have done this. A reputable business would have said now that you know, next time you will be charged. Again, unprofessional business practices.

    When I was driving my dogs there on the third visit, my seven-year-old dog started panicking in the car, trying to climb in the front seat with me. She knew where we were going because I put her dog bed in the car which she has learned means she’s going to boarding. Now I realize that was a huge red flag that she was not happy going to this place. I’ve never seen her behave like that going to other boarding facilities. Dogs don’t lie.

    She was allowing dogs with a positive rabies titer test result, which is not legal in South Carolina. There was an attempt to pass a bill (S 306) in 2019 by Senator Davis, but it got stuck in the Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources and was not passed. She was putting your dogs at risk by allowing a lapse in their rabies vaccine. I had to inform her (through my trainer) that this was not legal. She has since updated her website to require the rabies vaccine.

    Excellent Family Service

    Meow Bark and Board has been our furry kids home while we are away from home for years and I can say that I could not be pleased more. We have three pets that have frequently been boarded there and they are always relaxed when we come and pick them up. They get busy around the holidays but never slack on their responsibilities towards their pet tenants. The staff is always warm and friendly and knows how to treat animals of all shapes and sizes. They also offer a wide range of services ranging from pet play time and baths to nail clippings and reiki. I fully trust my animals to them while I am out of town with my animals well being. Will continue to bring them there and recommend this state of the art facility to others around me. Great job guys!

    Excellent Pet Care

    I have two dogs and had never had them boarded in the 6 years they have been part of my family. This year I have used Meow Bark and Board twice so far and will be using them while I am away on a long trip in September. I am very happy with their services. Toby and Lucy were well taken care of while there. They are happy when we arrive and go with Stacy and her staff with no trepidation. When I pick them up they are very happy as well. I am so happy I found a boarding facility I can trust.
