I found out about Spring Creek Kennels through word of mouth (other dog lovers), and have been using this facility for the last 10 years. I cannot recommend this facility highly enough. The kennels are kept clean, the animals are happy, and my dogs have always come home exhausted from playing with other dogs that Shannon has matched them with. Shannon has a deep understanding of dog behavior and personality, and matches their needs with their stay. I had an older terrier that did not hear and see as well as he used to, and she allowed him to follow her around on her chores and many times he just hung out in the sun waiting for her children to come out and give daily treats. My dogs come home dusty from playing, but never smelling like they have been kept in an unclean environment. They are well fed, and very pleased to return at our next visit. I know that Shannon treats my dogs like family while they are there, and it is hard for me to imagine leaving them with anyone else.
A couple of years ago I was in need of a reputable kennel. So, I received a couple of referrals from separate, but very discerning dog owners. I figured I would go and find out for myself, and the referrals were spot on. Shannon at Spring Creek Kennels runs an impeccable operation. Shannon’s compassion for her boarders are what all other kennel owners are measured by. It truly is a dog’s paradise. The facilities are very clean and every dog has ample room, and the play time, oh the play time. The dogs have acres of fenced area to romp and play. Our golden comes home happy after every visit. Yes, we have been using Spring Creek Kennel ever since and would not trust our boy with anyone else. Thank you Shannon for operating such a class act.
What a great experience! Spring Creek Kennel is AMAZING!!! Our two puppies experienced serious anxiety issues after staying with a previous boarder so for this vacation my husband and I knew we had to find a great place to take them; somewhere they would be loved and cared for. We have found that place! Shannon and Spring Creek Kennels provided our pups with an overabundance of both love and care! They played, they ran, they jumped, they had a blast and best of all they did this all outside. They were not just kept inside a small run for hours on end like at some places. Our puppies get excited every time we mention Shannon or Spring Creek Kennels so we know they cannot wait to go back. We will only use Spring Creek Kennels from now on. 5 stars for sure, more if we could give them!!
I would like to recommend Shannon Lutz and Spring Creek Kennels for your boarding needs. I have been taking my dogs to Shannon since 2001. She has always taken exceptional care of them. She knows each dog individually and makes any adjustments to fit that dogs personality and needs. She gives medication and any specialized food I provide without any problems. I can text her and find out how they are doing while gone if the need arises. I will continues to use Shannon and Spring Creek for all my boarding needs and can recommend her without reservation.
I highly recommend Shannon and Spring Creek Kennels for boarding your furry family. I have 6 dogs and have boarded anywhere from 1 to all of them at one time. You can double up in runs with your dogs. Mine love that they have another family member with them. She will/does separate them at feeding time though, which is really nice. I always talk to her about what is happening with each dog when taking them in. Be it a pup who has learned to jump fences or an older dog with special medications and diet. We discuss what might work best while they are there and then she adjusts that as the dog settles in to it's new accommodations. The kennels are always clean. I have never walked in and smelled urine or feces. She is very knowledgeable on the care of your animals and notices right away if there is a problem. One of my dogs stresses very easily and within 10 minutes of me leaving had terrible diarrhea. She immediately medicated him and that was his one and only bout of it while there. I have very high energy dogs, border collies, and the big play yard is great for them to get out and run off some of that steam. She is very dedicated to the animals. Last year after a terrible blizzard, where miles and miles of power lines went down, she was running a full boarding kennel on generators. Not an easy feat when living in the country with rural power and well water. She is one of the hardest workers I know. Thanks Shannon for taking exceptional care of my pets.
Shannon operates the kennels. She is super sweet and you feel comfortable leaving your pups with her. There is tones of space for them to run and the prices are extremely reasonable. The girls always come home happy and tired!
