Canine Works Compliment - Excellent company! Highly recommend
RICHMOND, VIRGINIA -- Canine Works, owned and operated by Mary Turgeon, offers dog training, boarding, & pet taxi services.
Having dealt with them both personally as well as for work with rescue dogs, we can HIGHLY RECOMMEND them!
Mary has such a way with dogs that it's incredible at times. Even dogs who have been labeled 'problem' dogs take right to her, and she can make a complete lady or gentleman of virtually ANY canine with her training.
Her prices are very reasonable--In fact, I think she charges too little! The facility is clean, safe, homey, secure, spacious, and well run--both the indoor AND outdoor portions. The dogs in her care receive tons of love and attention, and she has an open-door policy that anyone boarding their pooch there can stop in unannounced any time--an unusual and very reassuring policy. There are no dog 'runs,' but instead, appropriate-sized crates are used. The dogs aren't just walked, they are taken outside to the very nice outdoor exercise/training area where they can run and play and interact with staff, always closely supervised. They can even 'play' with other dogs if owners agree!
Mary is also very helpful and generous as regards rescue animals. She has helped us out of many tight spots when we had no place else to 'house' rescues.
I personally and as a professional urge you to check out Canine Works and see for yourself what a great place it is. I know of quite a few pet boarding facilities that don't offer near the quantity or quality of services that Canine Works does; several of the other places even keep people's beloved companion animals in absolutely deplorable conditions--except of course for the day of drop-off and day of pick-up. :( Fortunately, Canine Works is not one of those.
