What our customers are saying

Absolutely love Great Oak Kennels! To call it a kennel doesn't do it justice; it's more like a doggie nursery. We have two rescue dogs, both chihuahua mixes. Our most recent rescue had never been kenneled and has some medical issues. We are from the San Francisco Bay Area and our son was getting married in Temecula. We thought the best option was to bring the dogs with us and kennel them near where we were staying. From the first phone call to Rob, the owner, I felt reassured that the dogs would be in good hands. He was very accommodating to our travel situation. We would have to drop off and pick up outside his normal hours. When we arrived and took the dogs inside, we were instantly in love with this place. It is clean and bright. It has a great outdoor play yard with artificial grass. There are never more than 10 dogs boarded at a time so the stress level for the dogs is way down. The individual run for each dog is quite spacious and includes an elevated bed. I could go on and on but the point is, Rob is incredible with the dogs and is genuinely invested in their well being. When we picked them up they were clean, happy and had made new friends - with Rob and the four legged kind! Rob had even taken a video he showed us of one of our dogs singing (howling) along with Rob! I would highly recommend GOK; I only wish they were in Northern California too!
