Amazing experience! Our puppy loves this place and previously was shy and scared. We felt so calm leaving her and she gets excited every time we go back. The staff is young and lovely and clearly enjoys what they do. Can’t recommend enough!

Response from business owner

Hi Shari, thank you so much for taking the time to write this outstanding 5 star review! We know how nerve-racking it can be to leave our fur babies at a new place and with that in mind, we are so glad to hear how pleased both you and your pup are with The Animal Keeper. We are so thankful for our amazing staff that work so hard to create the best experience for our clients, two legged and four legged.

Hi Cynthia, thank you so much for taking the time to write this outstanding 5 star review! We know how nerve-racking it can be to leave our fur babies at a new place and with that in mind, we are so glad to hear how pleased both you and Jackson are with The Animal Keeper. We are also big believers in "a tired dog is a good dog" which is why we love when owners sign their pet up for activities during their stay. When pets are tuckered our from their group or private play sessions, that makes the boarding process and being away from their owners that much easier. We look forward to seeing you both next time!

Expensive. I thought they would feed my dogs while on (9-5) daycare, they did not. Suggest that should be discussed next visit. I'm pleased with the facility, close to my Poway home so convenient for drop off/pick up

Response from business owner

Hi Jessica.

Thank you for your 4 star review. We typically do not automatically feed daycare pets, just boarding pets. Often times they are fed by their owners before drop off and again after they get home. However, we do feed daycare pets upon owner request. Please let us know next time you drop off your pet and we'd be happy to fed them. We do apologize if this matter was not discussed with you prior to your pet's first daycare visit with us. We will look into this. Thank you again and we hope you have a nice day.

Hi Helen,

We were happy to give your cat lots of love while he was here with us. We understand that leaving your cats, especially for a long stay, can be hard. However, we did what we could to make him comfortable and help him acclimate. He did so well! Thank you so much for this kind review. We look forward to seeing you both again on your next visit. Have a wonderful day.

Toby loves coming here. He is so disappointed on the days he stays home. We have used both daycare and boarding and think the Animal Keeper is the best.

We feel ready good about taking our dog to day camp knowing that he’ll be well cared for and loved by the staff. Cooper loves attending camp each day while we are at work. It is totally worth the cost knowing he is safe and happy.

My only issue is the cost. My bill was over $800 for 11 days. There should be a complimentary bath for your pet if they are boarded more than 7 days...and there should be a frequent use discount ...something like pay for 15 days over a …

The best people to leave your dog with for the day or overnight. Our dogs have stayed with them whenever we go out of town for nearly 20 years. The dogs love them.
