Dog Boarding | Ace Pet Services

I love to travel but the one big stressor with traveling is finding a place that I trust that will take great care of Charlie. When we first got him we would use Camp Bow Wow and they were great, we really felt like Charlie was well taken care of and enjoyed the interaction with the other campers.

As Charlie got older we noticed that he was becoming very protective of G and I and really anyone that was in his pack for more than 5 minutes. It was at this time that I decided that Charlie really needed a place that can help train him while boarding him.

Charlie had puppy training at Noble Beast when he was a little under a year and the instructor there was amazing! He really took the time to understand Charlie and his areas of weakness and would work with us on how to correct them.

We found out that the trainer from Noble Beast opened up his own dog training and boarding out of his house and we were so excited to try it out! Ace Pet Services offers private training lessons, boarding and day care for your dog.

We were leaving for the weekend so we decided to try Ace out to see if that would work better for Charlie. The sign up process was really easy and the communication with the owner Louis was very smooth. We completed a questionnaire that let Ace know all about Charlie and any concerns we had with him. When we dropped him off we just brought his leash and food and they had everything else.  Charlie was so excited to see Louis and trotted off with him to meet the other boarders without even looking back at us!

While we were away we got several text messages with pictures letting us know how Charlie was doing. I loved getting those messages and they were just enough to give me my Charlie fix while we were gone and to reassure me he was doing well. I really liked how Ace is a home with two people that will treat my dog like their own. It felt so much more personal than a typical boarding place where they have dogs in kennels and they are alone all night.

After we picked Charlie up we got an email letting us know what they worked on for training as well as what the trainer recommends we do to keep our little hound happy and obedient.

I can’t say enough great things about Ace Pet Services. It was clear that this type of boarding works really well for Charlie and we are looking forward to our next vacation knowing that Charlie is well taken care of.

A Fashionable Hound

Charlie has often been told that he is one good looking hound, so I thought I would share his fashion secret with everyone, bandanas! I love searching the internet for fun and unique bandanas. I first got the idea when I saw that Chelsea Handler always has her Chow’s in them and I thought they looked so cute.

When we got Charlie two years ago we started his collection. We have even started hunting for bandanas when we travel to bring him back a souvenir and remind us of a fun trip. When he was a puppy we did have issues with him chewing on the ends when he would get bored, but he eventually grew out of that and now he wears them 24-7 (except for at the dog park or doggie day care).  I swear that he likes it better when he has one on and when you look good, you feel good!

They also make really cute gifts for people who just got a pup or if you are going over to someones house who has a dog.

Here are some of Charlie’s preferred bandana companies:

Willowear – They have great packaging that is standard so they are ready to go gifts.

Wagged – This company also donates a meal to a dog for every bandana that is sold.
