Meadowbrooke takes special care of my German Shepard. We sent him for training, and he formed a special bond with all the employees there. He is afraid of thunderstorms and escapes from my yard. He always finds his way to the kennel and they take him in and provide shelter and love for him. I am so grateful for Ace, George, and all the staff at Meadowbrooke not only because of the outstanding training they gave my dog, but for the special care they give him when he is scared.

We have been using Meadowbrooke for months now, and are VERY happy with everything... everyone is awesome...they really care about the pets that are dropped off, and reinforced our confidence when leaving our pet for the day, or for the week.

Thanks so much for taking such good care of my babies! The staff here is always very caring and you can see their passion for animal care. There are many reasons I come here, but that's the main one!

We needed a place for Titan to stay when we went out of town, and chose to entrust him to Meadowbrooke (Godiva Kennels, LLC). The kennel staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable leaving Titan with them. They assured us that he would be well taken care of and even happy to be there. On return, we found a very happy puppy who had clearly been loved by the staff. And that's an important point. They LOVE dogs. We now have 3 labs, and Ace, George, and the staff love them as their own. Every dog that comes to Meadowbrooke is treated like an individual, and even special needs dogs can find care and comfort at Meadowbrooke. We wouldn't take them to any other kennel to stay while we are away.

We bring our Trina and Scooter here at least 4 times a year, and we know that when they stay at Meadowbrooke (especially with Mell) they are in good hands.

Ace Russell, at Meadowbrooke Kennel, has been training our young shelter adoptees. The dogs enjoy his attention, and the exercise has been pleasant and useful to my husband and myself. Everyone from my house—dogs and humans—appreciates Ace's patience and calmness and guidance, the tools and vocabulary he shares. It's what we all asked him to teach us. The dogs have gone from chaos to cosmos in a few short weeks. I can imagine dog owners with dissimilar personalities who might be frustrated or confused by the quietness with which Ace communicates with animals. I've known a lot of dog drill sergeants, and feel fortunate to have met Ace who is very much not.

Very selective of the dogs in the obedience class, only the easiest and send others to expensive behaviorist or suggest getting rid of
