My dogs, Harvey and Ebby, has their very first “trial” of doggy daycare today. Harvey is a 95-pound Golden Retriever who has no idea he’s big! Ebby is a Lab we recently rescued. I had many concerns taking my dogs to daycare, but I also know it’s sometimes necessary and wanted to have them accustomed to it ahead of time. Harvey is a boisterous, 95-pound Golden, who has no idea his size! Ebby, being a rescue, concerned me because she has become so bonded with us that I wondered if this would cause her great anxiety, plus, there’s so much we don’t know about her. I spent about 1/2 hour on the phone with one of the trainers expressing my concerns. After that conversation, I felt reassured that my babies would be in good hands, so I booked a “trial” day. I would do errands and shopping in Bangor, and was reassured they would call me if Ebby was seeming stressed. I dropped them off at 8:30. By 11:00, my own anxieties got the best of me and I HAD to

Very friendly staff ! Have taken our dog there several times for boarding. Would highly recommend! – Elizabeth Getchell (14OCT18)


I can never say it enough. Thank you to all who take care of my girl when I am gone. While she’d rather be with me and expressed that greatly when I dropped her off, I know she’s happy to be there if she can’t be with me. Then when I got the report card and she had fun with her friends and was even a bit cuddly, my heart beamed. I’ve been worried about my girl since Maggie & Dad’s passing and then her losing her yard when Mom moved. But I take her to play in the yard there sometimes and have had her stay there too a bit more than in the past and am thrilled she is doing so well. Thank you! – Brenda J. Gammon, BS, CTR (10SEP18)


I have an older Weimaraner that HATES water and being kenneled. Bath time is not much fun for her or us! She was in desperate need of a bath so I called Green Acres and asked if they could accommodate scheduling her at a time that I could bring her in and wait for her so she would not need to be kenneled at all. They scheduled us for a Friday 8am bath time. Upon our arrival we were greeted and Tessa was taken in for her bath. I ran a quick errand and came back to find Tessa on the grooming table getting towel dried. The look on this dog face was priceless!! She looked like she was on the runway at a Westminster competition! When she came out she looked awesome, smelled so much better, and her nails looked better then ever! You could tell she felt as good as she looked! Thank you to Taylor for taking good care of my girl and making this a very comfortable experience for both of us!! We will be back soon!! - Laurel Feeney Sanborn, 21JUL18

Thank you, Lindsay and Christina for a great experience with Max! It has been so good for him and we are excited to continue to work with him. He loves the keep away game with his prize gekko ????. Thanks again ~ Donna and Cary


We had a wonderful experience training at Green Acres. Based on compassion, kindness and positive reinforcement, my beloved Enzo and I learned better communication. Stellar trainers and excellent advice throughout our class. I look forward to Level 2 beginning soon!! Thank you to Don, Christina and Ashley!! – Kate Watts – DEC2017


Best dog trainers ever!! Both Annie & Bella attended the Basic Manners classes. Annie in fact, was the STAR pupil of the class. She EXCELLED! And the trainers used Annie to demonstrate new routines/manners/behaviors.

Bella, on the other hand, was just too playful & "puppyish", and just wanted to play with all of the other "students", and was constantly distracted & distracting to the other "students". We could NOT get her to "focus"!! So we made the decision not to complete the class, and instead, bring her back the following sessions in the Spring or Fall. However, Brian passed away, so we never did get Bella back! If i could have swung it financially, i would have!m returned with Bella for SURE!!

EXCELLENT classes!! The classes are very well taught, in a manner that makes it easy to continue the lessons learned, at home, and for years to come! WELL WORTH IT!! - Suzi Fleming Leeman, 22OCT17


I wanted to let you know how beautiful my Riley looked after she was groomed by Peggy. Riley and I have had a rough few months due to injuries and Riley's coat really needed some help. I picked up a clean, fluffy Husky who I am sure feels so much more comfortable :) thanks! – Jane Blay – July 2017


Ms. Rosie and I had a wonderful time in the out and about class. I can’t begin to tell you (although I know I’ve mentioned it more than once!) how much we love your outdoor space. It’s really wonderful for us to have this opportunity. Thanks to you and Christina, I feel Rosie and I are a lot further ahead with our understanding of each other and are building a positive relationship in the great outdoors :) We hope to have more opportunities to do that this summer.

Our deepest thanks to you both for sharing yourselves and your expertise with us!

Just moved to Bangor and needed a place for my tow dogs Trini and Carley to make friends and socialize a couple times a week. A bunch of people recommend green acres and both times by dogs have come home tired and happy! – Brent Scott (29MAR17)


We met the other day and you were very, VERY helpful in my journey toward dog ownership.  Thank you again, for all of your time and willingness to share your knowledge--I found our talk incredibly helpful.  I look forward to the training classes you told me about, and to having you and your employees help my kids and I grow into good dog owners, Most sincerely, Lisa McPhee, 3/12/17


We have a Great Pyrenees show quality dog who is gradually rising in AKC-sanctioned competitions. Although our breed group and Kennel Club can supply handling classes to train performance in the dog ring, we found that the early puppy classes at Green Acres were invaluable.

?Thanks to the training from Lois and Kate, our puppy was well-socialized and able to handle the interaction in tight spaces among other dogs and human handlers outside of the show ring. She conducts herself perfectly even in hotel corridors (highly recommend BringFido.com if you travel with your dog and need pet-friendly hotels). Even experienced canine handlers complement her behavior and manners.

Green Acres puppy training system has made it so much easier to take her to the next level of training specific to AKC showing. Most dogs are not going on the show circuit and we cannot think of a better way to prepare a family companion dog than the Green Acres puppy program. As
