Excellent Facility

Second Home is absolutely the best most caring and helpful pet Home away from home! Kit is the best! I was really frazzled with my little cockapoo, Sophie when we found out yesterday she had an ear infection! 
This together with my own physical problems, I didn't pack enough of her food. Kit was on it and called me getting permission for Sophie to have Second Homes doggie dinner one night!
We had our corgi, Gracie boarded at Second Home numerous times and were so trusting that they would provide the best care for her while she was on her chemotherapeutic medication and now we have trust that Sophie will get the same loving care!
Thanks Kit and the rest of the great staff at Second Home! We can go visit family knowing she'll get the same great care!

I Would Refer Anyone Here

Love, love, love this place! We have been clients of Second Home for a few years now, and they take great care of our pups! We have a sweet, silly, and slightly dumb chocolate lab who loves it, as well as our mastiff-ish mix who is actually quite smart. We also have a special needs pittie mix, who due to a genetic disease, has lost function in her back legs and cannot walk. When we first brought her here after her deterioration started, the staff was very kind and understanding. When we picked up the dogs, we saw that the suite had extra padding and cushioning to help with Ginger's mobility. We did not bring her cart/wheelchair like thing she has, thinking it would be too bulky. However, we were wrong! One of the staff members was actually thinking of making one for her if we did not have one at home! What a caring place! Now, we make sure to bring her cart, and they use it, after asking for a demo of how it works.

Yes, you do need to pre-package your dog's meals in baggies and the care is not inexpensive, but look at it this way- you get what you pay for. Quality is not cheap, and my dogs are well taken care of here. I can sleep easy when I am out of town for whatever reason knowing they are being loved and treated well. And on the plus side, they come home exhausted, which is a sure sign of a good time!

Note: I have not had my dogs participate in group play because they are a selective pack, and can be protective of Ginger, who has the disability. However, they get lots of time to play together and they love it!  Personally, I love this place and really appreciate the love and care they show my fur babies, especially my little girl. I would refer anyone here, and will continue to come here as well.

Recommend Without Hesitation

SHPR is an awesome facility! They take such great care of the pets entrusted to them whether its for boarding, doggie day care, or grooming. The staff really do love animals and makes me feel secure knowing my dogs are treated they way I treat them. The other thing I love about SHPR is that they have an outdoor play area and waterpark. Also, some of their larger boarding suites have outdoor patios with doggy door access. I would recommend SHPR to anyone without hesitation!

Our Dogs Love The Pool

We love this place. Our two large dogs have been boarded as long as 3 weeks and have been a part of doggy day-care 2X/week since the facility opened. Our dogs get super excited upon arrival and can't wait to get in and see their friends. Also, our dogs love the pool. Cost wise, this is certainly not the most affordable, but we believe the facility is spotless, staff is caring and actively participate with the dogs.

A+ Resort

Second home pet resort is A+ and is truly my dog second home. My dog gets so excited to go there and hangs her head out the window just waiting till we arrive. All the employees know her name and play with her throughout the day. She is always clean and well cared for. So if you want your dog to be taken care of and loved this is where you would go there is no question about it. The employees are friendly and knowledgeable and know my dogs name and even take pictures and videos of her to show me. I am so grateful to have such a reputable and professional doggy daycare, boarding, and grooming center that my dog can go to and I know she having fun while I'm working. 
The owners are exceptional people and help rescue and foster dogs all over the state. they are very kind and caring people and obviously love animals.
