Romp is an exceptionally special place. It is so evident by the way my normally fearful little dog finally feels safe and loved when she is staying there. She has always trembled when we had to have her boarded for a vacation, but at Romp, when they take her into their arms, it's clear that she trusts them, and she can tell that they are genuine. Our dog is petrified to be around other dogs, and owner Matthew and everyone there are more than happy to give her individual private attention. They made her feel safe with her bed and other items from home all set up in her room, and they spent playtime with her letting her do her little tricks for her favorite treats. She clearly had fun at Romp and rested well, because she was her same happy self when we picked her up. (At previous places, she had lost weight, looked unrecognizable & had nightmares for several days.) I also love how Romp has a T.V. playing quietly at night to lull the dogs to sleep.
I finally feel comfortable leaving my dog, Porsha, with the very experienced and caring people at Romp for boarding as well as grooming. And, you can see in the photo that Amanda does an amazing job of making Porsha look like a cuddly-clean & fluffy dog who actually loves to get her picture taken as soon as we get home.
