"A wonderful kennel with wonderful owners. Kim and Harry provide an excellent standard of care and the facilities are comfortable and spacious.... I have now had 3 dogs who have enjoyed their "doggy vacations" in this beautiful rural Bragg Creek location and all of them have been excited to return. When your dog bounds up to the kennel as you let them out of the vehicle, you know they have had a positive past experience!" Emma Bauer
"We would never leave our Cavalier - Rowdy anywhere but with Kim and Harry. We feel as though he is being cared for by "family" and know that he is enjoying his "vacation" which allows us to enjoy ours." Joan and Ed Gaetz
Bombo has been attending Blue Ribbon since he was a puppy. He is now 5 years old. Every time we load up the car with his food and bed, he seems to know what's going on and is quite content to be heading out for an adventure! When we drop him off at the kennel, he races to the door and happily says good bye. While away, our family rests easy knowing he is away at his doggie resort! Bombo always comes home happy but maybe a little tired from all the fun playing!
Thanks so much for all you do when we leave our dogs with you at Blue Ribbon. We are never comfortable when we leave the dogs but when they are at Blue Ribbon Pauline can relax knowing they are in great hands. When we drop off the dogs they are always happy to arrive and obviously the care is amazing, they are always very happy to run to the kennel they will be in and excited to see both Kim and Harry.
"I've known Kim since 1994, when I got my first dog and took obedience classes from her. Back then I was impressed with her professionalism in working with dogs and their owners, and that is the big reason why my partner and I reconnected with Kim when she owned Especially for Pets and then once again when we found out that she had added Blue Ribbon Kennels to her impressive repertoire. We knew that when we got our new dog, almost two years ago, that we would be kennelling our dog instead of getting a house/dog sitter. We paid Kim and Harry a visit at Blue Ribbon Kennels to have a look around and see whether it was going to be where we boarded our dog whenever we were away.
"I have been a client of Blue Ribbon Kennels from the day they opened their doors 6 years ago and would never take any dog in my care to anyone else.
"When we think about taking a trip, the first thing we do (before booking a flight) is call Kim and Harry to make reservations for the pooch. Blue Ribbon has been like a second home for our dogs and we have absolutely no worries when we leave them in their hands."
“We feel so lucky to have found Kim & Harry at Blue Ribbon Kennels (BRK). The best way to describe BRK is your dogs home away from home. The level of care Kim and Harry provide is second to none. Our dogs Lucy & Wally love to stay so much they start wagging their tails long before we turn onto the property. I know that every time we go away on vacation our dogs are having just as much fun (if not more) staying at BRK. In addition to boarding our dogs Kim has provided me with invaluable advice and support regarding training and behaviour issues with our dogs. I can not recommend them enough. If you need to find a loving, clean, beautiful place for your dogs while you are away look no further.”
We have been a client of Blue Ribbon over the past 4 years. We have 2 large dogs and prior to Blue Ribbon we employed a number of kennels in SW Calgary. Our experience with these other kennels was adequate, at best. We never felt that the service and cost provided the best care for our dogs. Every service had additional costs.
"Knowing that Kim & Harry are so hands-on while taking care of our little guy is what enables us to go away without any worries. Thank you Kim & Harry"
