I started taking my dog, Boone, to No leash Needed back in 2018. He was having some issues with fear aggression and separation anxiety. He is like a totally different dog since training and daycare. His aggression is basically gone and he can’t wait to leave me when I pull into the parking lot. The staff is always friendly and Boone seems to really love them. Highly recommended.

Hands down the best doggie daycare and boarding in the area! Staff members are so attentive to the dogs and are very kind to their customers. My dog even shredded her bed during an overnight boarding and they kept all of the pieces in case I wanted to bring it home with me lol my pup loves it here!

Awesome staff who always remember our dogs and us by name. They all genuinely care about the dogs, and all are well educated in how dogs behave, think, and act. We absolutely would not trust our dogs with anyone else in town.
