I have known Rick and Coastal for *many* years. We met when we went for training with my first Malinois, then 2 GSD's (which were through his EXCELLENT breeding ethics), and now have another Malinois. We have driven over an hour for training, after moving almost 20 years ago. While I don't like *any* place where I have boarded my dogs, I know at Coastal, the dogs are allowed to be dogs, and are cared for by "dog people."

Attentive to needs
The people who work there were very friendly, informative and had very much patience with my dog. They were very caring and attentive to my needs.
You guys are wonderful! Bruno and I love you guys! Thank you for the wonderful care and compassion.
Best Vet We've Seen!
Taylor Locke is a very caring considerate vet. It is obvious that he loves animals and he can regale you with stories of animals he has seen 40+ years ago. The office is small, so it is often crowded, but they even do appointments (walk-ins) on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6 to 8pm. They always attempt to meet your scheduling needs and the office is open until 6pm daily. This is one office that also attempts not to gouge you on pet health care, which is rarely seen anymore. I'd highly reccommend this to any pet owner.
