We used this kennel for the first time to board our 15 year old Shih-Tzu for a week. She was always sick after we took her home from other boarding places. Not at this time! We took her home, and she was full of energy like she never left the house. On the last day of her board, she was given a bath, and her hair was trimmed around her eyes. We also purchased the kind of food she was given while there.
Very kind people, who are really care for the dogs. The prices are also fair. Overall a very pleasant experience for us and our dog.

well cared for and happy.
Thank you so much.

Mickey R obviously has a problem. This kennel is great. Furthermore, I don't think Cedar Lane is even doing training despite the note at the bottom of their website page. I even asked Peter if they could help with a training issue with our dog and he said they don't do that any more. So Mickey's claims of the up-sell seem completely falacious.
Peter and Susan have been like a second family to our schnauzer. They are very kind and caring. A second hand story does nothing to support Mickey's fable no matter how dramatic. It's a shame that defamation like this is so routinely carried on these sites, as it may steer away someone who needs a good kennel and will miss out because of this guy's ang

BEWARE! – I had a problem with this place several years ago and had to pick up my 1 year old lab after they claimed my dog tried to bite someone. Then they try to sell you training. Well its 5 years later and guess what, my dog has never bitten anyone and everyone love my dog! I write this today because I remember how rude and ignorant the owner was toward me that day and I got reminded at a dog park this weekend of this horrible place by a nice older couple with a sheperd mix who had a similiar experience to mine. They were told their dog needed training after they left him there a few hours and that they would have to pick up the dog if they didnt sign up for training. When they picked up ...  more>>

Amazing kennel, 10 stars!!!! – If I could give Cedar Lanes more than 5 stars I would! We have a 12 year old and a 7 year old German Shepherd. It has been many years since they have been boarded, and the old boarder is no longer in business (and was also very far). My 12 year old is my retired K-9 and is very focused on it just being me and him. Not only am I VERY particular with who would watch him, with his background and training, it does take a special "outsider" to know how to handle him. We needed our dogs watched because we were going out of town for 6 days. Cedar Lanes is practically in our back yard and read so many good reviews, we decided to board our dogs there. We initially did a...  more>>

Cedar Lane is Truly a Second Home for our Doxies – My husband's father, who lived out of state, became very ill when our dachsund litter mates were puppies. We had to rely on our vet's recommendation of Cedar Lane Kennels, one of two kennels recommended to us for boarding. Anyone who has ever been owned by a doxie knows how strong their personalities are. On arrival, they literally runs through the door! What appeals to us about Cedar Lane is they are an established business. The facilities are private and very clean. Even though Kleveland and Toledo have been boarded there on a regular basis for 11 years (we call it their spa), we are always asked if their vaccinations are up to date. The s...  more>>

Best Kennel for your Dog – We have been leaving our 14 year old jack russell at Cedar lane whenever we have to travel. We have never had to worry about our beloved dog because he is so well taken care of. Our dog is never anxious about going and he is healthy and happy when we pick him up. In addition there grooming services are excellent.
