Our dog always comes home happy and exhausted from running around the whole time. Staff are very friendly and flexible if your travel plans change. I recommend Break of Dawn to all dog owners I know!

We had a wonderful experience getting our new puppy from Break of Dawn. A beautiful and sweet golden retriever. We feel so lucky to have found this wonderful facility with such awesome people and animals.


Kristen Haff

We’ve had our rambunctious puppy trained and kenneled here. It is a beautiful facility with happy animals and compassionate straightforward staff. Nita obviously takes pride in what she does and follows up regularly on the success of the animals she’s worked with.

DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PET HERE!!! I happened to arrive to pick up my Westie earlier than expected and walked up to the kennel area to find the owner screaming at the barking dogs to shut the hell up and while squirting down the poop from the kennel area with a hose she was squirting the dogs. This has been a few years ago. When she discovered that I was there she became angry and told me I was too early to pick my dog up. She was caught!!! My dog was down in a different section so she hopped in the van to go get her. She came flying back up the road with my dog in the back of the van in a little kennel but she was swerving and trying to scare the dog on the ride back up. And it worked. My baby was shaking and petrified!!! I believe the owner did that because she was mad that I saw her mistreating the other dogs! Then when I got her from the back of the van, the owner changed her voice tone completely, we gave her a bath, doesn’t she smell all nice …. It was horrible. i didn’t say a word, I just NEVER will take my dog to that place again!!!! If you love your pet, you won’t take them there.

This kennel from which my Labrador came from 2 years ago, is a travesty! I left my pup there for a week during my vacation. I picked him up to find scarring on his face, ears, and throat. I called to speak with the owner Anita to get the story of why and what happened. Her answers where “he used his head constantly to push on the kennel door to get out and play”, and that “he scratched a lot around his collar”. My lab uses his NOSE to open doors not his head, ears, and around his eyes. Nor has he ever scratched his neck around his collar at home till he had scabs (much less scabs in the form of bite marks). Without going on a rant I HIGHLY DISCOURAGE YOU from using any of this kennels services
