I brought my black labrador, AMBER, to Atlanta Dog Spa for grooming at the suggestion of a friend - and after dropping her off for the appointment, headed back to the spa to pick her up. She was bleeding profusely from one of her toe nails as it'd been clipped way too short. The best the manager could offer me was a bandage, which promptly came off after I loaded her in the car to take her to our vet. I was told by the vet that they'd never seen a nail clipped that short before, and that someone VERY inexperienced must have preformed the nail clipping. Irate, I called Sarah, the owner of the Dog Spa, demanding compensation for the $80 vet bill - and the best she could offer me was a discount on future doggie day care. I will NEVER trust this sham of an operation with my dog ever again. To add insult to injury, this business has illegally added me, without my consent, to a SPAM text message list which I'm unable to subscribe from. (Spam texts received 2/14/12, 3/1/12, 3/1/12)

I was looking for a place with a home like feel, someplace with grass, someplace without agressive dogs (no pit bulls), all close to downtown. They are wonderful!!

I have used Atlanta Dog Spa many times over the last two years, but never again. Some of the staff who I have interacted with lately have been a total turn off (not saying thanks, not smiling, not seeming to love dogs, acting aloof). On my last visit, they left me waiting in the lobby for 20 minutes with no explanation and an unconvincing "sorry about that" when I paid the bill. One time I scheduled a pick up from my home, and they called and canceled 30 minutes before. I almost missed a flight because of it. This last visit was the final straw. When I came to pick up my dogs, all of the dogs were in the front yard with NO SUPERVISION (no one in yard or at window/door) and both of my dogs weren't wearing their collars. Anyone could have opened the front gates. I was horrified. Furthermore, one of my dogs had diarrhea smeared all over his back end and one of his legs. They just let him run around like that with the other dogs, which has to be a health violation. I had paid for a bath, and they didn't even offer to redo the bath or not charge me. Both of my dogs had diarrhea for three days after they came home, which is unusual for them. I should have taken a clue from something that happened on my first visit. During the walk-through we entered an empty yard where there was an elderly dog sitting in one corner (direct sunlight, no shade) who had been left there by accident. No one who cares enough to pay top-dollar boarding prices would expect this sort of an experience.

I've had my Albino Boxer Stevie for almost 4years. Atlanta Dog Spa is the only place I use boarding/daycare for him because is a "Special Needs Animal" and requires specific attention. Because of his inability to hear he only responds to hand signals and body language. The handlers at A.D.S. have always given him the utmost attention and do their best to feel comfortable when I travel. The ability to see my animals on a video cam if I miss them too much when I am away. They are very well organized, cordial and keep a spotless facility.

We went to check out the Dog Spa for our dogs for a possible extended stay, all I can say is the place is really run down and dark, the room they going to put our dogs in was dirty and damp. Also there was only one member of staff supervising the dogs at the time, it was a very depressing place to visit. Thankfully we found a fanastic kennels that is clean and is properly staffed..... I wouldn't even bother checking this place out until they give it a good clean up!

Yes, you definitely missed something. Our lighting is dimmed in the canine lounge and movie rooms for a spa feeling. We only use KENNELSOL to clean our facility. Most kennels and daycares use bleach which will eventually cause lung infections to your pet. As per the Pet Services Association which we are long time members, we have 1 handler per 10-15 dogs. We divide our dogs into separate play groups for safety. Most daycares have 100 dogs per day with only 2 handlers total. We have 30 dogs per day with 4 handlers. Yes, you definitely missed the level of CARE that we give to each and every dog. That is more important than anything and our loyal clients will agree. Furthermore, our kennel is the Cleanest in Atlanta as many will agree from all the positive reviews listed below.
My dogs love going to the dog spa for doggie daycare. Actually, they love it so much the days they don't get to go, they stand by there leashes and pout as I leave the house. I love being able to check in on them on the doggie webcams. All the staff is very friendly and know my dogs names when we walk in the door. Great place to take your dogs!

Thank you for allowing our staff to care for your beloved canines. It is truly our passion.
My dog loves to go to the spa for grooming, daycare, and boarding. I love being able to check on him on the doggy cams. The staff is very caring, knowedgable, and pay attention to detail. They know my dog personally and always give me a full report on his days activities. I would never take my dog anywhere else!

My hound has been "going to school" at the Spa since 2006. The staff ther eknows him when he walks in. They know his quirks, his allergies and virtually everything about him. It is so comforting to know that someone who loves my dog just as much as I do is watching him while I'm away. And now his 2 best friends go there, too!

Fred absolutely loves the Atlanta Dog Spa. I've tried 3 other places in Atlanta and nothing compares. I receive constant feedback, pictures and great stories about Fred and all his friends. Everyone knows his name and my name and I know my dog is in great hands.

I am one of those "crazy" people who consider her dog her child. I would not entrust her to anyone but Atlanta Dog Spa! I can't imagine a place where she would get more personalized attention - from fabulous pictures emailed of her at play, birthday cards and gifts, and even her own personal bed to rest on at lunch. I can tell they truly love her, and I'm not sure there is anything she enjoys more than being there. She'll begin to cry out in delight every morning as we approach "daycare!" Once we arrive she immediately runs behind to desk to say "hi!" and then runs straight to the back to play - no time to even say bye to Mom and Dad. I think her opinion is a true testament to how great a place this is! They have bent over backwards to accommodate her - after surgery, when her play was to be limited, they let her hang out in the front office and be a greeter to the other dogs. I cannot express how happy I am that she has a place to go during the day where she is loved and has lots of friends, both human and canine! It's worth noting ADS is also very "green" and makes large efforts to prevent the inhumane treatment of animals on several levels. You couldn't find a better group of people to care for you dog whether it is for daycare or a long trip overseas!

My almost four year old Frenchie has been going to the Atlanta Dog Spa since she was a pup and she continues to love it for both play dates as well as boarding. The dogs are safe, well cared for, get plenty of attention, supervised recreation and yes there are small pools, couches to lounge on and videos to watch. Most important, the staff loves what they do and it shows. While everything is top notch the place is not pretentious. They have an activist position when it comes to overall care support of our pets. This place rocks!

My 4 1/2 year old dog has been going to Atlanta Dog Spa twice a week for four years - he still gets so excited every time we get close. He gets greeted with a big "Hey Dice!", and he forgets all about us! The day is full of great attention and outdoor fun, with indoor fun in bad weather, and rest times at mid-day. Everybody who works here just LOVES dogs, and they are so careful to tend to every need. Sara runs a top notch business!

Sarah and her staff run a top notch doggy day care. They have grass yards and lots of space for the pooches to run around which is especially important to us since we live in a condo with two high-energy dogs. They have great hours and the dog handlers couldn't be better. They get to know all the dogs on a one-on-one basis and are very friendly and professional. Of course what really matters is that our boxers boys, Jake & Maxx, love love love going to daycare at "ADS"!!
