  • "We always choose Astro Kennels for when we go out of town and sometimes just to let the dogs get some energy out for the day. They are always so nice to us and our dogs. They genuinely care about them and take awesome care of our pups!" - Taylor Whitt (Facebook)
  • "Astro Kennels just saved my dogs life. How did they do that? Well we live on a busy highway. My two dobermans had been playing in the mud since we have had so much rain and my white one Daisy had obedience class tonight. I put her collar on and was bringing her in the back door because she was a mud puppy. My other 7 month old 90 pound doberman Alex got out when I opened the gate. He headed right up the driveway to the street. I called him like I had been taught in puppy class at Astro and he returned to me and I was able to get him inside. If we had not taken the classes at Astro I would not have learned the correct way to call him and he would have not returned to me. I am so thankful for everything that I have learned by taking these classes and how well behaved everyone thinks my dogs are. Thank you Astro Kennels and thank you Sandy" - Amy L. Guthke (Facebook)
  • "We recently took our dog to Sandy for a training assessment. I can honestly say that I think this is the best $40 we have ever spent on anything. We left the assessment with concrete, effective techniques that immediately improved our dog's behavior. Today, I saw the same kind of dramatic improvement after our first board and train. No need to suffer through bad behaviors when the answer may be this accessible." -Anne Page Albers (Facebook)
  • "Precious, Roxy and P'nut enjoy the time they spend at Astro Kennels. I never worry when I have to board them. Everyone there is so polite and my pets reacts towards them in a positive way. That means a lot considering that my pet's are my family. Thanks." - Constance Francois (Facebook)
  • "I was skeptical at first, but the progress my pup had made in a month has been incredible. We just finished the intermediate class and did several day board and train sessions, and they've helped our dog so much. She still has work to do, but the trainers are caring and professional. I'm looking forward to working with them. We've tried training before, but their methods have given us and our dog confidence. Our dog's behavior issues were putting her in danger, and they completely turned her around. We can now go on walks confidently. Cannot recommend them enough!!" - Danielle Marie (Facebook)
  • "As it turns out, Astro is the only place I could find that would take my Malinois because he is not neutered. Not a big deal because after meeting them and touring the facility, it's the only place I'd board him while I'm away. The staff is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Their experience with working dogs made me feel very comfortable leaving him in their hands.​" - Matt Snipes (Facebook)
  • "We have been coming to Astro Kennels for a while and have always been pleased. I brought my german shepherd in today for a bath and was a little worried with this being his first bath from someone other than me and my husband due to our shepherd having such high anxiety, but they did an awesome job! He looked great and seemed to feel at ease with the staff! Very pleased!​" - Ashley Callon (Facebook)
  • "We LOVE Astro Kennels! My sweet Akira loves going to doggy day care to play with the other dogs & she loves all of the staff members there, everyone is so good with her. Every time we come she literally pulls me in the door because she is so excited to be there. We also attended the puppy beginners training class with Jacksie. I seriously thought there was no training to help my WILD pup but Jacksie works wonders. We are excited to join the next class in May. I couldn't ask for better people to take care of my fur baby. Thank you all Astro Kennels!" - Angelia Warren (Facebook)
  • "They have always taken such good care of my sweet pitbull Bama. He has come such a long way from taking obedience classes and he's gotten to socialize in doggy daycare and boarding. I love this place and would recommend it to anyone in the area!! The staff are really friendly and confident/knowledgeable in handling and safely introducing the dogs to each other. I feel safe and confident in bringing my dog here and I know they treat him like their own!!! love it!" - Katherine Dobbs (Facebook)
  • "Absolutely love this place! I have 3 AMSTAF Pit bulls. Bowser my 2 year old boy has severe dog aggression and in 1 assessment I have it now under control. My other 2 Pits (3 month old) enjoy doggie daycare in an effort to not end up with adult Pits with dog aggression. The best part about this spot is the swimming pool and deck. Can't leave out the agility playground .. this place covers it all including top notch boarding. Accommodating the family in one huge luxury kennel. Love it! Can't say enough great things about Astro Kennels. I absolutely recommend them to all doggie parents!​" - Grace Madison Smith (Facebook)
  • "This place is absolutely amazing. We put our shiba pup Niko in puppy training with Sandy, and signed both him and our 10 year old shiba Foxy up for Intermediate training. Today, we dropped Niko off for doggie day care, boot camp training and a nail trim. We dropped Foxy off for a treat: wilderness hike for 2 hours and a bath afterwards during doggie day care. They both are nice and tired by the time I picked them up. We'll be using Astro Kennel's training and services a lot more in the future-- couldn't recommend enough" - Stefanie Burns Casimir (Facebook)
  • "Love this place. The trainer I had, jacksie, was amazing. She explained why my dog responded certain ways and the change in my dog's behavior was so quick. And she really loves all the dogs, you can tell it's not just a job for her. It was such a great class." - Erin Ingle (Facebook)
  • "Such kind hearted people and I trust them to take care of my dog.

After one session he was doing both!!! I am absolutely floored and so grateful for the wonderful trainers.

You have completely made a life-long believer out of me that the right trainer is all it takes!" - Amanda Krutzig (Facebook)

  • "I took Toby on his first walk at a park with the entire family (3 adults and 4 kids) today. The kids had scooters. My niece attended the obedience class with me that was led by Sandy Bayne. Toby was a dream! He behaved well, listened/obeyed my niece, and even ran at the side of my niece while she rode the scooter. No pulling at all. He greeted all strangers politely. Toby's behavior today is one of the reasons I recommend Astro Kennels to everyone I meet. You guys are awesome! Thanks, Sandy for helping turn Toby into a better behaved dog!" – Carol (Website Review)

  • "Doug and his team evaluated my Great Dane at their location. They were great with my dog. They taught me SO MUCH!

  • "We have been using this full service, well managed facility on a regular basis for the past 18+ months, and I will say that this review is past due. We were 1st time German Shepherd owners when Astro's was recommended to us.  We have learned so much about handling and managing our dogs, which have a different temperament and persona then the previous pound dogs we have owned.  I can't praise Sandy enough, their lead trainer, for all her guidance and wisdom she has shared with us. She has 4 dogs, 3 being German Shepards, and she knows a lot about all dogs. She is honest with you about your pet. She trains with proud results. She loves her job and it shows. The long standing staff at Astro's is awesome and well trained. If your pet has any handy cap whatsoever, this staff can perform miracles, and help your animal overcome any shortcomings. They are a great team and work well together. Astro's works very hard accommodating  their customers, both two and four legged. If you want a place to bring you pet(s) without worry, this is it. They will play, feed and love your pet better then anyone else." – Julian T. (Yelp Review)
  • "I used Astro Kennels to help me with my Great Dane behavioral issues. They were so awesome! First I went to them to have my dog evaluated, and the facility was clean well kept and the staff was super friendly. Within 10 minutes. Doug had my dog walking on a leash and following his lead without ever saying a word to him. While he was working with my dog he was giving me pointers on what I needed to be doing at home. A few weeks later they came to my home for a training session and it was fantastic! I learned so much and he gave me the tools to train my dog myself. Now my dog is much more well behaved and I have the knowledge to keep working with him. I am so happy I found them!" – Kelly J. (Yelp Review)
  • "My dog seems to love it here. And I'm more than comfortable to leave him at astro. Friendly people and great with Koda." – Tracy R. (Yelp Review)
  • "I have to say that this place is the Bomb-Diggity for my beloved dogs.  I have tried other boarding and play facilities like PetSmart Daycare, but this place delivers the best service and better then anyone.  Nothing else out there comes close. This is a dog owners dream.  Large playgrounds. Socialization training.  Specialized training.  Dog owner training.  Heated indoor swimming pool.  Reasonable rates.  Excellent customer service.  These guys are pros at understanding your dog and your needs.  They are honestly candid and your dog will not be treated like any other dog.  There is no cookie-cutter service here, as they tailor to your needs.   I believe it is also a K9 training facility for the local police force, and the owner is President of the Foothills Search and Rescue.  The staff is extremely professional and reliable and very accommodating.  If you have any concerns, this well trained staff will help you with unthinkable solutions.  They offer options for happy pet owners, like me. :) Sandy Bayne, one of their top trainers, is the best dog trainer i have ever met.  She is honest and candid, direct, doesn't sugar-coat, and gets results.  Your first meeting with her starts with an assessment of your dog.  You will love and trust her immediately.  She claims she is 'still learning', but I am extremely impressed with her knowledge.  She sends us videos and pictures while we travel, keeping us in touch with our missed animals.  She is truly a dog lover, and it shows.  She is simply the best. We have been using this facility since May and I have to say that I am extremely happy and my dogs are also happy.  Their disposition has become more approachable to strangers, and just seem happier all together.  With the world and life being so hectic and busy, I truly have peace of mind using this facility and working with this fine group of people.  The entire staff deserves a standing ovation.  Really." – Kelly T.
