"My husband and I have been very fortunate over the years in that we have never had to board one of our dogs. We have either taken them with us when we went on vacation or left them with relatives. However, we were going away over the 2011 Holiday season and no family members were available to watch our current dog, Dewey. I remembered that back in the summer, a co-worker raved about a boarder she had left her dog with. I asked her for information, and she referred me to Erica Matthews/Training Paws. I contacted Erica, explained our situation to her, and told her I was interested in meeting her and having her meet Dewey. Dewey had just had knee surgery, so Erica came to our house to meet her. I was very impressed by her friendliness, but told her I wanted to see the boarding premises before I made a decision. My daughter and I went to Erica's house, which is where she boards the dogs, and were extremely impressed by the cleanliness, organization, size, and set-up. I immediately signed Dewey up to spend the week there while we were away. Dewey was well taken care of, and she can't wait to go back again! Thank you, Erica!!!"
