No Leash Needed has earned the Angie's List Super Service 5 years in a row and has an A+ rating with the BBB...but more importantly, we have plenty of testimonials from real clients.  Find out why we are St. Louis' favorite dog kennel.

We've had a great experience with No Leash Needed.  The training is excellent - and the more consistent I am in practicing what we've learned, the more I can see a difference in their behavior.  The day camp staff is friendly and professional, and I feel like they really know my dogs. While they do not go to camp every day, they do go once or twice a week and are very happy to be there.  They obviously play hard while they're there because they come home tired -- and that's a good thing!"

We would recommend No Leash Needed to anyone who has a dog.  Their training completely transformed our dog.  The trainers are very effective at teaching both the dog and the owner, and the staff clearly cares about both.  The day camp service was great for getting our dog some playtime and exercise.  We can't say enough about how helpful the staff at No Leashed Needed has been.

I first heard about No Leash Needed at an Easter Egg Hunt in Webster Groves in April. I met Shannon and Alyssa and talked to them about boarding since I knew I was going out of town in June and needed someone besides family to take care of my lab, Missy. I started with an evaluation in early May and was shown around their facility to see where she would stay for boarding. They have 4 x 4 kennels and 4 x 6 kennels for boarding purposes and they are not kept in crates which I really appreciated. I started taking Missy to day care twice weekly to get her used to the facility and the staff. She absolutely loves going there and when I tell her we're going to day care today, she starts running around the house in the morning and follows me to make sure she doesn't get left behind. They have added pools outside for the summer months to help the pups stay cool and since she's a lab, she absolutely loves the pools. I can't say enough positive things about the staff there and am happy that I've found a place for my "baby" to stay when I have to board her someplace as well as when she needs to get some extra exercise during the week. I know that when Missy goes to day care she will come home happy and worn out.

Treadmill exercise is a great way for an anxious or “busy” dog to release tension and get fit.  No Leash Needed took time and care with Matsuko – an adolescent rescue – to get him comfortable with the machine.  Now he comes 4 times per week for his specialized play and exercise program.  He’s a happier and calmer boy!  What we like best is that No Leash uses all-positive methods with our dogs, which matches our training needs.

Comments are in reference to No Leash Needed West 141 & 44.  THE BEST TRAINING, DAY CARE & BOARDING FACILITY in WEST COUNTY...in my opinion. I have been involved in the "dog world" in STL for about 20 years. Over the years my dogs have attended Day Care and have been boarded in many of the other "top kennels" in the area.  Just for the record, I did not know the owners when I first started there. I went because NO LEASH NEEDED was recommended by someone I trusted who has worked in the dog kennel/day care business for many years. She said that this environment was so different than any where I had gone.  AND I must say that I have finally found the BEST. This is the ONLY ONE facility that the owners truly are involved in the day to day operations and spend time out front with the clients and their dogs. Shannon and Devika are actively involved in reception, training etc along with their EXCELLENT staff team! They care about you, your pets and their staff and it shows in everyone you meet.Their EXPERIENCED staff is a definite plus and can be seen in how professional & knowledgeable they are working with the dogs and owners. Nothing is a problem and they work with you to make things work for your pet. They truly care!!!

I have been taking my dog to No Leash for about a year now and I really like them.  They are always friendly, and take good care of the dogs.  I've used several dog care facilities over the years and they are my favorite in the St. Louis area.

To the wonderful staff at NLN:
Just wanted to let everyone know how much I love to have a place where I can take Max while I'm at work.  He's a little bit shy, but I think he is finally warming up to all the staff there.  I know he is having fun because when he comes home he is exhausted.  When I heard they were opening a new doggie day care that is even closer to my home, I thought I have to check this place out...so I did.  Well let me tell you, in my opinion it does not even compare to NLN.  First of all the prices are higher.  When I went there the dogs were just running around in circles not quite knowing what to do.  It is just one big room and the outside space is not shaded by any tress like NLN.  Max needs to rest if he is at day care for a full day and he would not do that if he was not put in a space where he couldn't roam, such as a crate.  With that said, I decided to leave Max right where he is (even though it is a little further away),  with the people that he knows and where I know he is having fun and resting when he needs to.  I'm sure he has made friends at NLN and I would not want to take him away from his friends (humans and dogs).Thanks again for everyone at NLN for loving Max as much as I do!!
