Thank you kevin for boarding our 2 Neufs and our cat. It is always a worry leaving members of your family behind but we have found in you someone who takes the time to understand them and genuinely care for their well being, even the cat gets one on one attention. Thank you also for sending updates via email, it does put our mind at rest.

Every time I travel I always have peace of mind that my dog is under exceptional care at Camp K97. It truly is his home away from home. Kevin has a special way of understanding exactly what my dog needs, which dogs my dog is suitable to play with and how to modify my dog's stay due to his temperamental personality traits. After each stay I am given a detailed written report of how my dog behaved physically, mentally and emotionally, interacted with others and demonstrated on and off leash manners. In my opinion there is no other kennel in the Bancroft area that provides such exceptional care to my pet. The facility is clean, there is lots of outdoor running room and acres of forest for my dog to relax and play in. When I go on holiday, so does my dog.
We have been leaving our Pudel Pointers at camp K97 with kevin for a couple of years now. We appreciate the spacious and clean kennels with tons of play room and large acreage for twice a day walks. We get written and personal feedback with each visit. It feels like we are hiring a dog trainer most visits. kevin has great knowledge of dogs and we have confidence that our dogs are getting both physical and emotional attention. You won't be disappointed with Camp K 9 Seven.

Once again, thanks so much for looking after my dogs while I was away! It is so reassuring to know that they are "at camp" with you ; healthy, active and happy. You have a wonderful facility, meticulously maintained which I very much appreciate, and your extensive knowledge of canine behavior and training practices have been a huge benefit to my dogs. I have used many kennels over the last 40 years, and I can say without a doubt CampK97 is far superior to the others- thanks for being there!
Our dogs have had the pleasure of staying at the K-9 kennels for the past three years. I say "pleasure" because their visits with Kevin are full of fun and exercise. Two long walks each day through the forest that surrounds the kennel, ball games and practice with manoeuvring agility courses are some of the excitement at K-9 kennels. Just as important as the fun and games is Kevin's skill at managing dog's behaviours. He has worked in cooperation with us on various aspects of our dogs manners. Now they're perfect, right Kevin?! Dogs at the K-9 kennel are also given the opportunity to socialize, where appropriate, with many other of the kennel's clients. In fact, the local dog rescue organization enlists Kevin's assistance in socializing, training and finding new homes for dogs that had previous social/behaviour difficulties. One of the best testimonials for the K-9 kennels is that of our dogs themselves. Their excitement upon arriving at the kennel and their kisses for Kevin speak a thousand words!
Ellie the Beagle is the baby of the family and we wanted her to have a wonderful and fun place to go when we went away. A friend recommended Camp K9 Seven and let me know her dogs were so happy being there. Ellie loved it. We are so impressed with the cleanliness and what a great play area there is. We also appreciate the high level of care our dog receives. Over the years we have tried other kennels and none compare. When we pull in the driveway Ellie gets so excited and begins to cry. When she sees Kevin she goes crazy, jumping and crying and runs right to him. That tells me Ellie loves every moment there. And I so look forward to reading Ellie's report card after each visit- it is a great idea. I highly recommend Camp K9 seven.

I take my little guy Remy to Camp K97 at least once a week, not because I have to but, because he LOVES it. I am so grateful to have such a fantastic place where my precious pup gets to learn excellent social skills, meet new and old friends, go for walks and generally have the time of his life. I swear he has a big tired grin on his face when I pick him up at the end of a day at camp (and I also don't mind that the little guy sleeps like a rock when he gets home.) We've left Remy for longer stays also and the piece of mind we get knowing he is in such great hands is priceless. We love Kevin's hilarious and helpful "camp report cards" and his genuine love and concern for all the dogs in his care.
Two paws up!!
