I cannot recommend this training program enough. We sent our 14 week old golden retriever to the puppy obedience training and are so impressed with how much he learned! He gained great recall, excellent manners, and incredible socialization skills. He has transferred his skills to home without difficulty.
The communication with the staff was outstanding. Everything from feeding recommendations as he grew to weekly “pup-dates” on how he was doing and lots of pictures.
I know Benny can’t wait to come back and visit!
My dogs have never looked so happy!! We have 3, and it’s always hard to leave your babies, but with Y-Farms I know they are not only in good hands, but they are having the best time!! I call this “doggie camp”!! They love it so much I can actually see the joy in their little faces. The staff are fantastic, responsive, and super flexible. I LOVE this place and I’m SO happy to have found it!
Y-Farms is wonderful! Our family has used their facilities for some time now from dog training to boarding. The facilities are always clean. The staff welcomes my fur babies with hugs and smiles. When on vacation or just out of town , we are confident that they are getting the love, care, and attention they need.
Jennifer, Kenzie and Krista love each one of the dogs and are passionate about providing the best experience for their clients.
I simply want to adopt (purchase) a Labrador Retriever! However, there is absolutely no way to get in contact with these people. I’ve tried to call the phone number listed on their website, left a polite voicemail, texted them as requested in their phone message, emailed as also instructed, and tweeted them – and have been completely ignored for two weeks with not a single response. Never seen anything like it? Very strange, and highly unprofessional way to run a business. Too bad as they are very close to me location-wise and I just wanted a sweet Lab for my little girls. 🙁

These folks are unprofessional. We visited during hours and their daughter introduced us to the woman in the photo. This lady was nice as can be and gave us some paperwork to fill out to board/train our lab, she told us to bring it back with the dog on Sunday so he could get acquainted with the other dogs. The following Sunday, we called and her husband told us it may be better to leave the dog behind when we brought our paperwork. We left him in the car and dropped off the papers and had a nice chat with the lady about the dog. Now we need to board the dog, and she sends us a nasty email saying that her husband told us not to come that Sunday at all and that we were rude to come and that we made her uncomfortable when we first visited and clearly “interrupted her” when her daughter told us she would be happy to see us! This is really confusing costumer service, do yourself a favor and avoid the headache.
We have a 1 year old male lab and we boarded him at Y-Farms for two nights. Before we took him, we went and toured the facility. It seemed like an awesome place to put our (rather hyper) dog. We went to drop him off, he was so excited and ran inside to play. We felt really good about this place! Then, two days later we came back to pick him up. First, when we got there no one was there, someone had to come out of the other house to get our dog. Second, he came home absolutely filthy and smelly. Which (at the time) wasn’t a big deal, we had the understanding he would be outside most of the day anyways and it’s nothing a good bath couldn’t take care of. So we take him home and immediately give him a bath. That’s when we noticed the back of his legs were bleeding, oozing green and so infected they were swollen. We immediately contacted the owner to ask her about it, she claimed to have no idea what happened and that it had to of occurred that day. We cleaned his wounds and scheduled to take him to the vet the next day.
Since we cleaned it the night before, the vet got a good chance to look at his wounds and told us it was actually several deep cuts to the back of his legs. She said it could possibly have been from the fence or from being put in a kennel that was too small. Apparently, they had gotten infected (since he was never bathed) and in fact, did not occur the day the owner claimed it had. We again contacted the owner and explained what happened; her response was “I am so sorry that happened, we will be installing more cameras”.
Clearly they did not take care of our dog, nor did they pay any attention to him while he was on the play yard or after they brought them back inside. Dogs are just another dollar sign to them. I will not be returning.
