A Caring Kennel Starts with Caring Owners
A Caring Kennel Starts with Caring Owners – Have you ever heard a pet boarding horror story that has made you hesitate to board your pet? Many times these horror stories are a result of kennels that weren’t run by animal lovers.
A well-run and well-respected kennel doesn’t happen by accident. When the owners and employees are animal lovers themselves, the result is a kennel you can trust.
Big Times Kennel is owned by John and Maureen.
John retired from a long career in the retail world and moved to Dayton, Ohio with the intention of starting a full-service kennel with room enough for boarding, grooming, and training. As a life-long dog owner, he has decades of experience taking his beloved dogs to shows and agility competitions.
When John retired, he could have chosen to sit back and relax, but his love for animals and desire to help others pursue their agility goals motivated him to use his retirement years to help others build memorable experiences with their pets.
After college Maureen taught in the Cleveland public schools, from there she moved to California. Because of her love of dogs, she decided to learn how to groom them. Like John, she also has experience in dog competitions. Because of this experience, she has the unique ability to groom dogs not just with looks in mind, but also with the dog’s lifestyle in mind.
Maureen also loves her English Angora rabbits and is a knitter and fiber spinner. Take a look at her fabulous creations on her blog!
Because both John and Maureen have decades of personal experience and affection for animals, they extend the same love and affection for all the pets who come to board at Big Times Kennel. They understand how hard it is to leave your fur babies in someone else’s care. So they have created the atmosphere at Big Times Kennel to give you and your pet a successful boarding experience.
Here are some success stories:
Connor H. says, “I just wanted to thank you again so much for the kindness you and your team showed Ben. I was so nervous to leave him but was quickly at ease!”
Alana says on Facebook, “I absolutely love Big Times Kennel and can’t thank you enough!! As a single mom with two girls and a dog, I rely on you a lot and you never disappoint!!! I know Annie is always well cared for, gets plenty of playtime and always has fun! All I have to ask her is, ‘do you want to go with John?!’ And she heads for the front door! Thank you for all you do! I highly recommend you to any of my friends looking for boarding!”
Phyllis says, “Outstanding! Our first boarding experience for our two pups and we (and they) could not be happier with the care and treatment they received. I looked at and visited with A LOT of other facilities before choosing Big Times and it was perfect. The facility is CLEAN, the prices are very reasonable, the pups receive lots of attention, love the environment and come home happy and tired. Their “vacation” lasted two weeks and honestly, I think that they weren’t quite ready to come home. Highly recommend.”
Lisa says, “John and Maureen are wonderful, caring people who treat our pets like they are their own. We’ve never been disappointed with any training, boarding or grooming experience and recommend Big Times whenever we get the chance!”
Big Times Kennel is not just a job for John and Maureen. Their genuine love for pets is shown in every element of Big Times Kennel and has given pet owners the ability to have successful boarding experiences. If you are in need of boarding for your cat or dog, please contact Big Times Kennel and reserve your pet’s spot. John and Maureen look forward to their visit!
