Best humans taking the best care of our 4-legged babies!!!

Very friendly and clean.
They watch the dogs very well.

This is a company that definitely knows how to make pets and pet owners feel very loved and valued. The “report card” and “first day of daycare” picture was absolutely precious. The events they hold with pictures and special treats. Everything is very thought out and makes each pup and their owner feel special. Staff here is super friendly and helpful. I work 12hr shifts as a nurse and they accommodate my hours, which makes my life SO much easier. My dog and I love dogtopia! Truly, I don’t have a single complaint. Thank you guys for loving my pup and for helping me out every single week!

To begin, there aren’t enough words to convey how highly I regard and love Dogtopia South Waterfront. From my initial interaction and introduction nearly 7 months ago to the present day, the kindness, compassion, consideration, respect, and love that Remy (my Frenchie) and I feel from the amazing people at Dogtopia South Waterfront has been second to none. Remy has quickly fallen into his routine of “school time” and happily runs in where he is always greeted with enthusiasm, pets, and smiles.

During the day, I am happy to know that I can peek in on my baby to see that he is having his best day ever with his friends and canine coaches. Likewise, any time that I text with any questions, I receive a prompt reply. Remy had the privilege of boarding recently and I received regular updates with pictures included of him living it up which made me incredibly happy.

One of my favorite things (and probably Remy’s too) are the “event days” sprinkled throughout the month that raise money for the Dogtopia Foundation. Whether it is turkey bacon, dog prom, a dog mom’s day art project, Pride pictures/body design, I love that Remy has something to look forward to, and all for a good cause.

To the staff of Dogtopia South Waterfront, I thank you so much for everything that you everything do for Remy (and me). It means everything to me that he has people who love him as I do.

Welcoming and passionate staff, fair pricing, great activities for the dogs, love the cameras, love the dog of the month, love that information is provided about what your dog is up to and who they are friends with, clean facility, and open policies (e.g. showing the backroom areas). Honestly not a single bad thing to say! Absolutely excellent!

Pleasant staff. My pup is always exited to go.

My dog is happy when he goes there. They love him!

The front check in space smelled quite strongly of urine.

Otherwise, staff is always friendly and helpful. Appreciate the cameras so I can see what my dog is up to during the day.

Would like cameras in the boarding suites as a way to just check in on my pup.

It’s great exercise for my dog, she gets the socialization she requires, and the canine coaches and staff are always happy, ready to help and professional.

The staff is super nice and the place seems clean and organized. I know I can trust them with my dog.
