I had a wonderful experience with Petropolis. I took my new Bernese puppy to them for 20 days worth of training and I'm very pleased with the results. All of the training staff is wonderful and you can tell they all love their jobs.

I dropped off my 72 lb puppy (she’s a 6 month old Great Dane) for a personality assessment and to decide where she would best fit with other dogs. She’s been to puppy camp before but this place is special. The pics I got showed her true personality and her activity when around other dogs I know that great care was taken to ensure that she had a great experience. Her smile said it all! I will definitely be back for training and totally recommend Petropolis! The staff is knowledgeable and caring!

At our evaluation, our questions s were answered and we felt comfortable about enrolling our puppy at Petropolis. Today was his first day and Zane did well. I was sent a video of some of his training. That’s a nice perk!

We had a great experience with dog boarding at Petropolis. Everyone we had contact with was professional, and put as at ease as this was our first time boarding. He truly was in great hands. We loved their professionalism and organization, they made everything easy for us. We will definitely be back.
