Emerald Street Kennels is our major bracket backer! I had the opportunity to take a tour of their facility, dropped off our dog, and was extremely impressed with their business. I'll be taking Chris Cruise (Cruise&Box Mornings) and his dog for a tour. I've been looking for a place when we go out of town and just with our 2-year-old getting most of the attention these days. We thought having a place for him to could go play, get exercise, and get attention for other pups would be great for him. Here's what I thought was the coolest thing...

I took this after hours screen shot as staffers cleaned after a full day with the dogs. They have eight webcams to keep you in tune with your dog, and THAT lets you see what's happening all day. I'm sure you would agree that this is a must feature, and it's all free. I"m bragging about this because we're giving away these services to some of our winners of Mutt Madness. I'm not getting paid to tell you this. I was just thoroughly impressed with management's knowledge, philosophy, and on-site trainers.

A few weeks ago my wife called me, and two dogs were fighting in our neighbor's yard. The owner of the dogs was caught in between and was yelling for help. Scary situation. That brings me to my final conclusion. Emerald Street Kennels will have over 100 plus dogs on the weekend. I watched them acclimate our weenie dog to the other different breeds and was impressed with how structured it was. They don't just dump your pup in a cage. This is an excellent service for your dog if he/she isn't used to interaction with other animals. Great idea. Smart. Safe. We would love for you to win some of these gifts!
