I have been taking my lab/boxer mix, Nero, to DDR for about four years now. The staff is friendly and especially loving to my pup. The facility is clean, bright and well-maintained. Nero gets a ton of exercise and socialization and is always wiped out when I pick him up....which is no easy task. I also like getting the photo and video updates of him while I am away. I live in Philly and travel a bit for work and the drive to Baltimore is worth the peace of mind to know that my baby is in good hands.

When touring they only allow part of the premises to be seen. Place smells like urine. You have to pay for play time, etc - but on 5th day of boarding they give a complimentary bath? Why? Cause your loved one is most likely been sitting in urine and feces

I cannot say enough positive things about the Downtown Dog Resort and Spa. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and truly care about dogs. They take excellent care of my year old French Bulldog who LOVES it there!! They are very in tune and knowledgeable about the breed, will pull her inside if she gets too hot or over does it and give me updates about her improved interactions with other dogs (she doesn't have the best manners and wants to play with everyone!), who she likes to play with, and really know about all her quirks and nuances. I show up at all hours of the day to drop off or pick up and the place is always clean and the dogs who I see appear to be well taken care of. I've also seen how the staff interact with her on their videos and pictures, particularly when she isn't the subject of the photo/video but in the background. If she has had a particularly rambunctious day and has gotten especially dirty, they bath her free of charge. They also were over the top thoughtful and helpful during my pregnancy, often taking her in for me or bringing her out if they saw me pull up, boarded her with no notice when I had my daughter, and continue to remind me to call them when I get there so they can come out and get her so I don't have to disturb my baby to bring her in. There is another dog daycare literally 1/2 a block from my house but I wouldn't think of taking her anywhere else. In terms of the cost, I have found them to be comparable or less expensive compared to other facilities that offer less in terms of space, services, and boarding options. And they offer a discounted packages. Definitely check them out if you are looking for fun place for your pooch!

Picked my dog up around 5:00pm and the front dest attendant was complaining about having to wait for owners to come and pick up their dogs, I asked again when they closed because I thought it was 7:00pm and she replied "Ya, the last few hours of the day just drags". I retrieved my dog, and the minute we got out side, he had to go to the bathroom as if he had not been out for hours. When we got home he had terrible diarrhea - for hours, and was severely dehydrated. I felt so awful for him. I will never go back there.

Downtown Dog Resort and Spa has been my saving grace! I have been taking my dog Opie for over 6 months now. He is a one and a half year old puppy with a LOT of energy. I take him at least 3 times a week for daycare and training with Daf, and board him on occasion when I have to go out of town for work. I was given a tour of the facilities without even a request, which are clean and spacious (not to mention the doggie pool! My pup loves to swim). Daf invited me on several occasions to come back and observe his training sessions so that I feel comfortable and understand his methods. It was of the utmost importance to him that I understand my dogs temperament and learn how to train him on my own in order to prevent giving him mixed signals. These actions spoke volumes to me and I feel confident leaving my dog in the care of the professionals here. When we pull up to the building, Opie could not be more thrilled to arrive. We are greeted by a friendly staff who knows us by name and Opie can hardly wait to be rid of me and taken back to the play room. In addition, the owner (Jim) is almost always there and happy to answer any questions. He obviously appreciates that these pups are our babies and treats them as such. My ONLY reservation was when I first started training, there was a bit of confusion about payment methods and exact costs for Daf's services. However, I believe this was a misunderstanding on both ends and they were happy to work with me to avoid issues in the future. Opie has come a long way since working with Daf and coming home to a tired, happy puppy after a full day of training and fun is worth every penny. The rates and packages in general are much cheaper than any other you'll find in the area, and their weekend hours even allowed me to get him in daycare for special events and weekend shifts when I worked in a restaurant. I would suggest that they start to use webcam's as many other places do, but I certainly don't need them to know that Opie is being taken care of. I highly recommend all of their services, including their veterinary hospital.

My husband and I started taking our 13-week old puppy, Bianca, to Downtown Dog Resort the Monday after we picked her up from a PA rescue, and she absolutely loves it! The staff members are fabulous, the facility is great, and in only 2 weeks, Bianca has turned into a much more well socialized young lady. We have only used the daycare service so far, but I would certainly also trust them enough to board her there if we ever need to (and that's HUGE coming from me, because I have never let anyone except for my sister babysit my dogs in the past). Yes, it is more expensive than leaving your puppy home alone all day, but if you sign up for a daycare package, the price is very comparable to hiring a dog walker to stop by once a day. I'm personally not a fan of inviting strangers into my house while I'm at work, and I also think that socializing a puppy is very important, so this is well worth the cost! Thank you, Jim and everyone else at Downtown Doggie! Keep up the great work!

I love this place, and so does my dog. I never have to worry when my dog is there because I know he is being taken care of. The supervisor, Mark, and his staff are fantastic. They really do care about the pets entrusted in their care. I highly recommend this establishment to all dog parents, if you take your dog there, you wont be disappointed.

I've been boarding my dog here for 3-4 years now, and we've generally had a good experience. My dog always comes home totally pooped, so I know he's getting plenty of exercise. I always have them bathe him on the pick-up day, so I can't really speak to the cleanliness of the facility as he always comes home smelling pretty clean. The staff is alright - sometimes they are completely professional, sometimes not so much. More importantly, it seems like they care about my dog as they always remember him by name and he seems excited to see them. I've also never brought my own food - my dog isn't a picky eater, and he's always been fine for a few days on whatever food they provide. The last time I boarded my dog he came home sick - he threw up 9 times in the 24 hours following his pick-up (he recovered after a couple of days). When I picked him up I asked the staff (as I always do) how he had done, and they didn't say anything about him being sick, so it's unclear when he first became sick. However, this doesn't seem to be the norm so I will take him back in the future. If he comes home sick a second time, then I will have serious concerns, but for now it just seems like a fluke.
