Our dog Peyton needed an outlet from apartment living while we were at work. He had lots of puppy energy at 10 months old. We gave The Dog Spot a try and Peyton loved it. His human friends and canine friends are the highlight of his week. He is greeted lovingly each morning by Sue who makes him feel special. Peyton visits twice a week and gets awesome attention and we feel safety is a priority for the dogs. We highly recommend this wonderful facility to anyone who might need excellent care for their pet. Joyce has given us good training tips that have made a difference in positive behavior. 😀

Thank you so much! The TDS team and I love what we do and we are thrilled you have chosen us to care for you pup!
My Thor loves coming here and playing with the other dogs. I felt that the staff were professional and it was very clean. We also boarded him here last year when we went on vacation. I would recommend them to anyone!

Thank you so much! We work hard at making sure we provide a clean, fun, and safe environment so all the dogs in our care have a doggone great time! We love Thor and enjoy the time we get to spend taking care of and playing with him.
i have been bringing my dog here for a few years now. She is terrified of storms and is destructive at home. But at the Dog Spot she has so much fun she doesn't even realize it's storming. Joyce and her staff are welcoming and accommodating. And as I said, even after I moved to the city I still drive out to Loganville for the playcare because it makes my dog happy :) .

My Dog Gunny has been going to the Dog Spot since he was 5 months old, he will be 2 in June this year. They treat him like he was there own dog. My dog loves it there and I would recommend this place to everyone.

I learned of The Dog Spot through a fellow Trainer. I needed some behavioral help with my boxer. He was well-trained but manipulative and Joyce came highly recommended in the industry as a behaviorist. She was a godsend! 4 years later, my boy and I live a happy life with another boxer (also spent time with Joyce) and a brand new rescue terrier that Joyce helped locate, knowing exactly what would best fit in our home! He will be attending her Canine Good Citizen class in a couple of weeks. Her positive approach with both dogs and humans alike is a win win for all involved!!

I love The Dog Spot! Every time I stop by, I am greeted by a friendly staff. I love the different options for boarding the dogs and the fact that I can choose free play for my dog if I choose. I have recommended The Dog Spot to several of my friends and they have been completely satisfied with the care their dog received. This is a GREAT place!

My dog got out of their facility and was hit and killed by a car. Instead of calling to inform me as soon as he was out (even though they had multiple pages of contact info.) or following their own process, they did not call until it was too late. There was not opportunity to even explore a solution to try to appeal to him and attract him back from the road. Poorly done.

This was a tragic situation and to clarify, we did call the client right away...on the same phone number that they had called us on to check on their dog. The client did not answer. We chose to continue to look for the dog as we had our eyes on him and didn't want to lose track of him while we waited for the client to call back. We spent many, many hours trying to stay in contact with this very scared dog and unfortunately lost sight of him well after midnight. We feel horrible that this dog was so scared that he forced his way out of our fence and wouldn't come back to us, even though we had visual contact with him for many hours. Absolutely a tragic event that we will never forget.
I have used The Dog Spot for a couple of years with great results. Their positive reinforcement training has helped both of my dogs become well mannered and well behaved without taking away their personality. They actually enjoy being dropped off for day care and boarding and are very happy and tired when I pick them up. The staff does a great job. Also impressed with how clean the place is. Takes a lot of work to keep a place like that clean

This place rocks! My dog loves to come here for doggie day care. The staff is very accommodating to the special needs of my dog (she only like to play with boy dogs). I have taken several training classes with Joyce and she is very knowledgeable and always willing to help. I'll keep bring my dog there for her play time and continue my training as well. My perceptions of the people at The Dog Spot are that they truly care for me and my dog and want to help me enjoy and appreciate my dog more. Many of my friends take their dog s here for doggie day care and love it.

I took my pup for her 3rd grooming here and while I have been satisfied before, I had a less than pleasant experience this time. I was told she would be done in 2 1/2 hours, which I was fine with, and left to run some errands. Well, 3 hours go by and still no phone call to let me know she was ready. I tried calling the office and no answer so I decided to just go back there and see if she was done. I get to the office and the front door is LOCKED!Evidently they are closed from 12-3 which I had NO idea of and they didn't mention this when I was told my dog was going to be ready at 1:30.So if they close from 12-3, why was I told my dog would be ready at 1:30?!Makes no sense.I had to wait 40 minutes in my car for someone to come back to the office at 3 and unlock the door.While I was waiting,another lady showed up to pick up her dog that was supposed to be done with grooming at 12:30 and she had gotten no call either.Finally someone unlocked the door,I go in and tell them that I was supposed to pick up my dog at 1:30.The receptionist went to convey this to the groomer and told me that the groomer would be right out to talk to me.Well,guess what?I got to sit in the office for another 30 minutes waiting for her to come out.When she finally did,she handed me my dog and gave a weak,"I'm sorry". No explanation,nothing.I said nothing to her,paid my $40(which was way too much for the choppy haircut that she gave my dog)and left. I will NEVER go here again or suggest them to anyone!

I would recommend The Dog Spot to everyone. I have not only taken a training class with my puppy but also have boarded her there. Joyce and her staff are loving, professional and customer oriented. Her classes are excellent. The Dog Spot is reasonably priced and if you want your dog to have as much fun as you do on vacation, definitely give them a call!

I was surprised when we recently boarded our baby sheepdog. Arriving early (tp oick her up after 4 days) when the shop should have been closed....I arrived to find the owner there taking dogs out to play. Gracie returned to us happy, calm and smelling nice, ( and we didn't have her groomed). As veteran pet owners, trust me we could tell that Gracie even "enjoyed" her time away from her beloved family. We will actually be taking her there again tomorrow as we head to the beach. Highly recommend, but good things don't come cheap.

As first time dog owners, we have been delighted with the boarding services and obedience classes we have taken thus far at The Dog Spot. The staff has taken such good care of our baby and we could tell right away how much our puppy and the other dogs love them. Tammy has been so patient and helpful by answering all of the new puppy questions we have (and we have had a ton). The staff is always respectful and professional, and so nice and kind. We know Mimi is in good hands when we leave her there; she interacts with the staff as if they are a part of the family. We are so impressed with the service that we are going to start Mimi in doggie daycare next week. Kudos to TDS. You all are truly one of a kind.

Our overall experience was great! The routines for getting dogs in and out and playing was awesome! The meet and greet was a notable difference as they dont just take any dog and throw them with the rest. The staff is very friendly and Joyce is excellent with any type of dog! Definately brining Sady back!
