I would HIGHLY recommend Fido Fitness Club to anyone who wants the best for their dog! I organize a dog playgroup and found Fido Fitness Club when I was searching for an indoor dog park area for my group to meet.
The first time I brought my dog to Fido Fitness, I was pleased. The facility is spacious, CLEAN!, and comfortable and the owners were there on the premises, involved in the day to day operations of their business. My dog played for several hours and made friends quickly with both the staff and the other dogs. Everyone who works there loves dogs and Fido Fitness's behavioral specialist/trainer spent time getting to know my dog, answering my questions about the facility, answering specific questions regarding my dog's quirks, and giving me advice as to how to begin reclaiming my status as the Alpha of my home.
I recently left the country for 11 days and I was stressing over the thought of leaving my Frenchie with a kennel. While my dog is a good girl, she has a tendency of letting me know that she's unhappy with me when I come home from my trips! I ultimately decided to leave my dog at the Barrie Inn, which is owned by one of the same women who own Fido Fitness. During the evenings and mornings, the dogs are at the Barrie Inn and during the daytime, the dogs are in daycare with all their friends at Fido Fitness. They're never caged unless you ask for that! I also liked the fact that I could even watch my furbaby on the webcam from overseas if I was missing her.
While I was gone, I called several times to check on Stella and was met with friendly and warm voices (of people I knew!!!) from both the Fido Fitness and the Barrie Inn staff who updated my on me dog's behavior and I was reassured that I'd made the right choice. The truest test though has been the fact that my dog has been sweet as pie since she came home! No vindictiveness, she's doing wonderfully, and even seems to listen better! (Anyone who has a dog who thinks that she's queen knows that this is a Godsend!)
Ellen, Evelyn, Steve, Carol, and the rest of the staff are superb. You will not regret leaving your pup in the hands of these wonderful dog-lovers! I would highly recommend Fido Fitness and the Barrie Inn and would never even consider leaving my dog anywhere else!
