    Hi Bill and Maria, I hope you will put my testimonial on your website. I can never speak highly enough of your kennel and your staff.


    My successive dogs have been spending time in camp at Possumplace Kennels since it’s inception. Rufus was just 10 weeks old when he first experienced the wonderful care of all their staff. I was a little worried about sending such a young puppy there, so he

    became a guest in Bill and Maria’s house, where he was allowed to sleep with them and all their dogs on the bed.


    Since then he’s been back several times a year and is always happy to see Bill and to jump into his crate in the limo. And that’s not easy for him since he’s been a tripod for almost 7 years. (amputee).


    The kennel has always been spotless, and the dogs receive TLC and plenty of exercise. The staff is always careful to match them with a dog of similar energy and temperament. Rufus must take heart medication and an anti-inflammatory daily, and Bill is always mindful

    of this responsibility. He will never hesitate to take a dog to the vet whenever there is a problem. And the grooming is top-notch.


    This is a wonderful kennel.

    "We had to transport 4 dogs and 1 cat from Canada to Australia. As we had left prior to their departure we had them stay at Possumplace Kennels for 17 days. During this time Bill took our cat to the vet on two occasions and all 5 animals to the vet on a separate occasion willingly. Our animals are very attached to us and had little outside contact. We were concerned that they may not do well with other humans. Possumplace made them feel at home and comfortable so they settled in quickly. They completed all necessary requirements to enable them to fly to Australia. We highly recommend Possumplace Kennels to anybody who has a cat or dog that requires their service. We are grateful beyond words for what they have done for us. They deserve 10 stars."

    Chers Bill, chère Maria,
    Je ne saurais trop vous remercier pour avoir pris soin de la gentille Lily avec autant d’affection. J’imagine que vous vous êtes attachés à elle et que c’est avec une certaine tristesse que vous avez du vous en défaire.
    Ce fût un réel plaisir de vous retrouver.
