Just awful! Rude staff, dirty, smells bad, and they wouldn't allow me to see where my dog would be kept. I notice on their website, u never see anybody monitoring the dogs in the play areas. Does anyone else work there besides the rude front desk guy? Hope so, because that guy made sure I will never be back. I was a new customer and he started criticizing me for being too nice to my dog. Huh? I didn't ask for his opinion, but he jumped all over me trying to "train me." How about being polite first, maybe even ask some questions about the dog or otherwise act like u care. This guy treated me like he was so put out by me and my dog. I wasn't going to put up with that. There r so many better boarding options!
Do not board your dog here. Park cities obedience school allows Riff's dog rescue to house their dogs at their facility. I adopted a puppy from Riff's rescue that they let run around in common areas with dogs being boarded. This puppy had blood in her stool and turned out to have parvo. She is now being hospitalized and may not survive. Park Cities Obedience School seems unconcerned with the fact that this puppy ran around with the dogs that were being boarded. I'm aware that you have to be up to date on shots to board your dog at this facility, but there is def a lack of cleanliness here. I saw with my own eyes the staff sweep up the bloody stool with a broom without sanitizing the area, then several dogs ran through it to their owners. Just disgusting.
Thank You! – I cannot thank Park Cities Obedience enough for giving me a safe, responsible place to take all of our dogs. I just figured my husband and I would never be able to go anywhere again together not only after what happened last time we took them to a well known chain boarder. We rescue dogs and some of them have been aggressive towards other dogs. The last boarder put a new dog in with all of our dogs (a pack) even though they were specifically instructed otherwise and a dog fight ensued. I was worried leaving them with another boarder but was happy to come back to find out no incidents had happened and they said all the dogs did great! Our dogs were all great when they got home and looked adorable in their bandanas! They smelled fantastic and acted great! One of our dogs that went through the Board and Train has come back more social, more obedient and no longer obsessively licks my hands at every chance. We will definitely be going back. Thanks again.
Great Experience – I not only adopted my dog from there I also use them for obedience training, boarding and their doggy daycare services. Every time we go there all of the staff members know my dog by name (not sure that is a good thing - they probably remember her because she is quite naughty), but regardless they remember her.
She is a very social dog and loves to play with other dogs and she gets plenty of opportunities to do so whether she is staying over night or just for the day. Their prices are reasonable and their care is superb. I would recommend them to anybody.
Thank you for caring – The owners of PCOS genuinely care for animals. They generously offered to find a home for a dog I rescued, and they took the time to find him an appropriate home. They don't pass the animal along to the first person to express interest, but spend the time and money to house the dog until just the right owner comes along. I appreciate the fact that they don't adopt to people who are gone all day, or keep the dog outside, or display a less than warm and loving attitude. Thank you PCOS!
Great Boarding and Training – Park Cities Obedience School is wonderful. I give it 5 stars. I live in far north Garland but still take my two pooches to PCOS for doggie day care or the occasional pet "play day". Both of my dogs love going there and are fully played out when they are ready to be picked up. The care at PCOS is outstanding and everyone there really takes a personal interest in their "guests". I have a large American Bull Dog who was aggressive on a leash and a very energetic Border Collie and now both are well socialized and a pleasure to take on walks, thanks to training and care at PCOS. I highly recommend this school for boarding, daycare and training.
I know the owner Phil Marr and he wife Deirdre and most of the PCOS staff and gladly confirm that the care and training for our pets comes from their core beliefs of love and affection for animals and the fairness and respect for their owners. Can't find a better place for boarding and training in the Metroplex.
Sad truth enough is enough – My friend took her 2 poodles in May for a two week course in obedience training. she received a call Max ran under a fence and ripped his back that they took him to a vet and he was sewn up and fine.The 10th of June she received an e-mail that a staff member took Zeus home and he died in her bed. 2 hrs later another e-mail that Zeus died in his crate.Upon arriving she took poor frozen Zeus a block away to their vet. He was shocked, he had no knowledge of Zeus dieing. but that morn had removed three tubes from Maxes neck where a very large dog almost ripped his head off. He advised a complete autopsy after he saw e-mails and told her go get Max now. On her return they even showed her the fence. She finally told them enough -I talked to the vet. and he said Zeus was frozen longer than 2 days.The autopsy will be in in 2 weeks! I wonder how this nightmare happens to 2 pets.recieved some news on june 12 Zeus did not die from natural organ failure.more results are due in a week
Happy happy dog! – My dog absolutely loved day care at Park Cities. He would scratch at the car door to get in there on the days that we went. He came home sleepy and happy.
Is also a great place to board your dog - the dogs play together all day then go to sleep at night. Ideal for active, social pups and the people who love them.
A TERRIBLE experience – These are the rudest people I have ever dealt with. I tried to adopt a dog through them, and not only did they deny my application (for not "staying at home all day with the dog"), but they were horribly rude about it. They even went so far as to say that I wasn't fit to own my existing dog! It was one of the worst experiences I have ever had because of their horrible attitudes and blatant discourteousness. I would absolutely NOT recommend this business to anyone.
