wife and I have just completed a 1500 mile move from Conway
South Carolina to Texas. During that move I made time to
investigate other boarding kennels to see if there was anything
I could report back to Jim to help him make his business
better. What I mean by better, is to make his boarders and
dogs being trained, more comfortable either emotionally
or physically. I had the opportunity for overview at least
30 establishments in five other states. I would like now
to take the opportunity to share with you my findings.
of all the establishments visited the only item I found
that would make the boarders at Jim's kennels more comfortable
was the fact that two establishments had pools for the hot
summer days. There were steps to these pools so the boarders
could go in and out at their leisure, to either swim and
cool down, play in the water, or just lay by the pool and
enjoy the shaded walk area around said pools. Except for
these findings I found nothing close to what Jim is offering
at Aldo's Acres.
also did not report this to Jim because I know that he was
planning on doing a pool setup in the near future. I also
discovered that not one even came close to Jim's approach
to training. None of the establishments discussed diet,
exercise programing, psychological principals of training,
different mindsets of the dogs being trained, and the various
non-abusive training diversions that could and should be
used to help the dog get through the training processes.
To say the least this discovery was very disheartening.
NEVER give kudos flippantly but I must say, for the record
to the public forum now, if you have to board a dog, if
you have to have a dog trained, PLEASE
TAKE YOUR BEST FRIEND TO JIM'S. You cannot go
wrong there besides for the fact that your dog will be treated
like royalty they also get home-baked cookies. I cannot
say enough about Jim's way of doing things at Aldo's Acres
- but let me reiterate your money will be spent wisely.
You will have a happier dog and in-turn you will be happier.
