Best. Kennel. Ever.  My husband and I are both originally from Canada and travel a lot, so our 2 miniature Schnauzers, Jeremy and Dennis, are boarded often.  We had heard about Tru Luv Kennels from an owner at a dog park, and decided to try it out.  We live in west Allen, and it took us about 25 minutes to get there, and it was well worth the drive.  The first thing I noticed was how clean it was, and Lynne (the owner) comes right out to help you bring your dogs' food, toys, etc. inside.  The kennels are HUGE!  We have 2 crates, and they both fit in the room, with room to play, and for their food and water as well!  I have no anxiety about leaving our boys there, and Lynne even sends us pictures of the boys playing just to reassure us they are having a fantastic time!  Our boys come back clean and tired, so i know they get lots of play time.  I would recommend this kennel to anyone who wants a fun, clean, safe, and most of all, worry-free place to leave your loved ones!  The boys even get excited when we pull up, and after we drop them off, they are right at Lynne's heels.  Thank you for taking care of our boys (sometimes with VERY short notice) and for making it a stress free time away from them.

Hello Lynne,

I meant to send this email out a lot sooner.

We just wanted to say THANK YOU for taking care of our dog Jazz when we were on vacation back in May.  You did an EXCELLENT job and we appreciate it.  He was in great hands and he had a great and lively time while he was there at Tru Luv Kennels.
I left a very positive review on Angie's List so hopefully that will help you out.

While we don't plan on taking any trips any time soon, we might be visiting folks that are a little far away from us and will call and see if a kennel is available to drop Jazz off in the morning and pick him back up in the afternoon.

Thank you for Jazz,
Michael & Mary Gray

*Chloe stayed with us from 1/29/16-3/4/16 while her parents move
d to Austin. 5 weeks!

Thank you for everything you have done for us and Chloe.  You have been a blessing in a time of uncertainty.  Sorry my schedule did not allow me to be there today for the pick-up.  Both Katie and I will recommend you to anyone/everyone in the area.  Also, if we ever need to do a little extended stay I'm sure we will happily make the drive from Austin so Chloe can stay here in good hands.

Hi Lynne:
We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated you taking care of our boys while we were on vacation.  We were worried about leaving them someplace new, but after touring your kennel, we knew it would be okay.  And then you sent us pictures of them running and playing and enjoying themselves, so we never worried about them after that, and could relax on our vacation.  The boys were happy when we returned, which is the best compliment of all.  We will be booking our Holiday reservations with Tru Luv Kennels.  Thanks for taking care of our boys.

We just wanted to say thank you so much for taking such amazing care of our 2 silly dogs, Bailey and Kenzie.  Over the last 8 years we had boarded Bailey several times, and each time we would come back, there would be meals not eaten, or food not given, the wrong meals given at the wrong time, and she would always lose weight.  With Bailey's digestive disorder, this makes it very hard for us to be comfortable leaving her for any amount of time.
After just moving here, we were glad to get a recommendation to Tru Luv Kennels.  When we first toured your kennel we really felt like it was a safe place, and our dogs would be cared for.  It is cleaner then most people's houses!  We and our kids were thrilled with all the pictures you sent us while we were gone.  We all missed our 2 dogs very much, and the pictures helped a lot, to see them having so much fun playing!
The proof was in the reaction from the dogs.  Not only was Bailey happy as can be, but was properly given all her meals and medications, and she actually ate.  She didn't even lose any weight! This was Kenzie's first stay away from home, and you can tell she really enjoyed it.  Even when she chewed up her bed, you saw that, and gave this teething puppy a raw hide of your own to help her! You absolutely went above and beyond and we really appreciate it. 
Not many people can do what you do, and do it so well.  You have made taking a vacation a lot more relaxing and enjoyable!

Just wanted to let everyone know what a wonderful place Tru Luv Kennels is.  We boarded our dog Rascal there several times, and as soon as he spots Lynne, he just runs off with her and never looks back.  We never have to worry about him while we are gone!!!  We moved to Kansas City, MO in July 2010, and were having our wedding in Texas, and instead of boarding him here in Kansas City, we drove him to Princeton, Texas just so he could stay with Lynne, and we could really relax and enjoy our honeymoon!!!  We were so excited to get pictures of him playing with all the other dogs everyday!!!  We are relocating back to McKinney soon and I can't wait for him to stay with her again!!!

Thanks again Lynne,

This is way over due, A BIG THANK YOU for all your love, kindness and compassion this past year.  Madison, being almost 12 years old and moving to a new city, had us worried about where we could take her and know she was being well cared for.  After trying a few places, and not being very happy with them, we were blessed to get your name and number!  You and your family have gone above and beyond our expectations.  One can truly see you have found your passion.  What you give to the fuzzy guests and their owners is more than a Thank You can express.

With love and gratitude,
Roger & Doreen and of course Madison too!!!!!

I wanted to send a note to thank you for taking such great care of Trixie.  It puts us at ease to have such a wonderful place for her to stay that is safe and well-run by a loving family.  Tru Luv is a gem in our area!

Trixie smelled so good this morning when I picked her up.  Thank you for giving her a bath too!

I don't know when our next trip will be, but we may be seeing you again in 2016.  I hope your daughter has a great end to the school year and that you have a great year ahead.

Jenna and I returned from our honeymoon yesterday.  Thank you very much for taking care of our puppies and we loved the photos.  We knew that our dogs were well cared for at your place and we will definitely come back in the future, also, definitely refer you to our friends.  If you have some place online you'd prefer a review Jenna and I would be happy to do so.

I was very pleased with the care my dogs received at your kennel.  Fred and Duke seemed as happy as could be when we went to pick them up.  As a matter of fact, I gave your number to the receptionist at Dr. Lane's Vet Clinic and told her that I would take them back again if I needed to board them.  Fred mopes when he isn't with his people or in his own surroundings.  I could tell that he had been fine.  Thanks again for taking such good care of my dogs.  Your facility was very clean and I think your daughter is a great asset.

Thank you so much for taking such good care of Jenny during our family reunion.  I know she had a much better time with you than she would have with all of us old folks.  I was so impressed with your kennels...they were clean, organized, and most of all, your 4-legged tenants seemed so happy.  I will highly recommend Tru Luv Kennels to anyone.  The pictures of Jenny were so cute.  I especially liked the one where she was with Faith and Buster; and, not knowing how she would fit in with other dogs because she was so spoiled, you've proven to me that nothing is impossible.  I can truthfully say that Jenny will visit "doggie day care" again soon.

Thank you so much for your valuable service and friendship.

Dear Lynne and Allen,


I can't thank you enough for the wonderful care our dogs Jack and Ollie received at your kennel.  We have always had family care for our animals so this was our dogs first experience at a kennel.  Since moving to Texas our family hasn't traveled because I didn't feel comfortable leaving the dogs at a kennel.  We chose your kennel because of the fact that they would be able to be outside and with people during the day.  Your facility was large and clean and a place where my dogs could be dogs.  I appreciate the pictures you sent too.  My family will be taking many more vacations because I know my dogs have a great place to stay.  Thanks for giving me peace of mind so that I could enjoy my vacation.  Please feel free to give my name and number out as a reference.

Dear Lynne & Allen,

We want to thank you for the wonderful love and care given to our poodles Ginger and Crissy while we were on vacation for the last two weeks.  Our Ginger has lost her hearing, is beginning to lose her vision, is 14 years old (72 in human years), and is starting to need extra care and attention.  Sometimes when we are away she doesn't eat properly, and usually when we return, her and Crissy both go crazy jumping and barking.  I must say when we returned this time both of them were calmer, and I can only attribute that to the daily care an attention they received while at Tru Luv Kennels.  We will, without a doubt, bring them back when we are out of town in the future.  Thank you for insuring that our babies were so well taken care of.

NOTE from Lynne: Since this letter was sent to us, the Gonzales' have moved just north of Austin, but still travel all the way here (3.5 hrs) to leave their Crissy with us when they go on vacation. WOW!  Thank you!!
The Gonzales's lost sweet old Ginger to kidney failure a few weeks after their first visit.  We feel very lucky to have spent those 2 weeks with her.  Rest in peace Gin-Gin. 


Dear Lynne,


Sweet Callie and Oscar Oh-Oh are looking forward to 2 "camps" at Tru Luv Kennels in a couple of weeks.  I am delighted with the personalized care and "luv" that they get.  When I return, the Oh-Oh has disappeared and Oscar even sleeps through the night.  Both dogs are happy campers and I am too!  You are the best!!!!

Just wanted to drop a line to let you know how impressed I was with your facilities.  It is so clean, and safe and secure.  I had no worries about my dogs "escaping" or getting injured.  Also, I appreciated your family playing and spending time with them.  You treated them like they were your own family's pets.  Your daughter, Faith, is adorable.  Tell her "thank you" for me for playing with my dogs while we were gone.  They loved the attention you guys gave them.

You have a great kennel service, and I will continue to board my dogs with you.  Thank you again.

Lynne and Allen,
Thank you for taking such good care of Bandit during our family vacation.  We were looking for a place not only for Bandit to stay, but also a place for him to run and play outdoors with other dogs and people.  Your facility is great and met all our needs.  We had a relaxing time knowing that Bandit was well cared for, safe, and had lots of room to run and play.  We especially appreciate the special attention you gave him by letting him rest in the office with you while you were working.  We will bring him back soon for a holiday stay.

Hi Lynn,

I just wanted to send a quick email to say thanks for the care you gave Saphira and Finnegan over Spring break.  You could tell they both had so much fun playing with their friends.  Thanks especially for watching out and keeping me up to date on Saphira when she had her rock-eating incident.  (She keeps us busy doing things like that.)  I will be sure to recommend you to our friends and we will hope to see you again in the future!

Hi Lynne,

I am sorry I took so long to let you know how really great we think you and your Kennel are!!!  I am sure that if Tinker could talk she would have been bubbling over with stories of her fun and how great you are!!!  We can not thank you enough for being there for us and for our precious girl!!! 
We will indeed want to come back, and as a matter of fact, we will be calling you this next week to make more reservations.
We will for sure spread the word to our friends, the Pet Salon, and Vet where we take Tinker.
Glad we could allow you and your family to really get to know a real Schnauzer and see how much fun they can be and how eager they are to show affection !!!!
So see you soon and thanks for being there and being a great Kennel owner!!!!

Hi Lynne and Allen,

We wanted you to know how much we appreciate all the extra attention and effort Lucy recieved during her stay with you.  I was really worried about leaving her so long (her longest stay ever in a kennel) especially with her health issues and meds.  But you guys really went above and beyond to keep her safe and healthy.  We'll definitely be calling you again.  Hope I'll get to see you next time, Allen!

To Lynne and Allen and TRU LUV Kennels:

We are so happy that we have finally found a great place for our dog Pebbles.  Your place is large and has plenty of outdoor areas for her to roam - even though she wants to stay by your side Lynne!  We had her at several other places only to have her come home with bite marks, and burn marks from rubbing her nose - probably trying to let someone know she needed to go out.  It helps that your kennels are close to home but we would travel an hour if we had to just so she could get the "LUV", care and environment you provide!!  So happy to meet you both and looking forward to her next stay!

For anyone thinking about boarding your dog, look no more!  Tru Luv Kennels is the best decision I made for my Doberman, Alice.  I was not looking forward to traveling for Thanksgiving because I couldn't bring her and I knew I had to look for a place to board her.  I looked at many places from Dallas, Frisco, Plano, Allen and McKinney, but there was always something that I didn't like about them.  When I found Tru Luv Kennels I knew she would be happy and safe.  I love the fact that I received photos of Alice playing and having a great time with her new friends.  Now I don't mind traveling for Christmas because I know Alice will have a place where she will be loved and cared for.

We just wanted to say thank you for taking care of our babies!!  They must have had a blast, they have slept for two days now!!  It's so nice to know that they were taken care of just as good as they get at home.  We loved getting the pictures seeing they were playing with the other dogs!!  You and your family have a great place and we have already bragged to friends and family!!

Thanks again!

Thank you so much for the wonderful care you provided Brewtus during our Thanksgiving vacation.  During our week away, it was very comforting to know he was doing well.  We enjoyed the pictures you sent via email, in the past other facilities have never done this nor even offered....very cool!  Brewtus usually has so much energy but after bringing him home from your location, he was just as relaxed as can be, which tells me he definitely got lots of play time!  You're close to our home, have fantastic rates, and offer all we could ask for.  Thank you for everthing & we can't wait to be back!

We just wanted to say thank you for taking such good care of our baby when we were gone!  We loved the fact that Emmett had so much time outside and space to run/play.  We felt very comfortable leaving him with you after seeing how much care and concern you had for each dog you were boarding that week.  We especially appreciate the photos you sent to us during his stay, he looked like he was having a great time playing ball!  Looking forward to boarding at Tru Luv Kennels the next time we need to board.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for Morgan's care while we were gone.  this is the longest we have ever left her.  After checking your place out, I was so impressed at how clean it was and you seem so organized in the way you run your business.  I had no doubt after leaving Morgan that she would be loved on and played with.  I also enjoyed the photos you emailed while we were gone.  I have given your name and number to my Vet so that they will be able to share it with persons asking for Kennels.  Again, Thank You and we will see you next time I need to board Morgan.

I want to thank you for sending these wonderful photos of Tuxedo and Happy, they looked like little boys at summer camp.  Please send me some of your business cards, so I can refer your kennel to my clients.  I will always use your operation so I won't have to worry about my baby.


Thanks again,

Hi Lynne,

Wanted to drop a note to say Thanks! for the care you've given Rex during spring break.  We really enjoyed the pictures and the peace of mind that he's in good hands.
He had so much fun and is resting from his vacation.  I think he's a little sad (or maybe bored) since he's not with his dog friends.  our cats are just not that exciting.

Thanks again and until next time!

Hi Lynne,


We just wanted to say that Lady's first stay with you went wonderful.  You have a very clean environment, lots of room for play time, and it was clear you and your family spent time caring for and playing with Lady.  Thank you for the pictures you emailed us too.  That was a very nice addition to the whole stay.  I wish you much success and we will return any time we need to go out of town.  We are so glad we found you!

We were so glad to know that our babies were taken care of like family at Tru Luv Kennels.  We love the fact that there is room for all three to stay in the same room together so no one feels "left out".  I was also happy that they were able to run and play and were not limited to only a couple of bathroom breaks per day like some other places.  I work from home and they are always with me so being in a traditional kennel was just not an option for us!  Thanks Tru Luv!

To Tru Luv Kennels,

We would like to say a big thank-you for looking after Kiwi when we were abroad at Christmas time.  As Kiwi is a rescue dog, we were worried in case he thought he was being left in a shelter again.  Of course, we need not have worried as Tru Luv Kennels is nothing like a shelter.  As soon as you arrive at the kennels you can feel the warmth and love that you guys have for the dogs that stay with you.  Your facility is so clean and smells sweet!  We truly appreciated the photos that you kept sending of Kiwi and his new pals. Knowing he was having so much fun was a great relief to us all.  In fact when he came back to us, although he liked to be back home, we could tell that he missed you guys and I think he was maybe just a little love-sick for one of his friends.  Thanks again to you and we look forward to boarding Kiwi with you again.

Hi Lynne,

I want to thank you for the wonderful care of our baby "Chevy".  We adopted him in January and he is a rescue.  He is our baby and been through a lot so we are so happy with the care and attention Chevy received while at your kennel.  I called to check on him while we were gone and you were so wonderful filling us in on him and happy to talk to us and answer any question I had.  You also sent us pictures through email!!!!  Never with other pets did we get this, it was such a wonderful thing to actually see him playing and happy.  We take our pets with us when we can, but there are times we just cannot.  We will never take Chevy anywhere else when we have to leave him, you have a natural way with him and he has been sleeping all morning with all the playing you did with him.  I will recommend you to anyone I know whether they need day care or vacation care.

Good Morning Lynne


I'm so thankful you had patience with Buster and worked with him yesterday morning!  He was happy and I think he is home resting up, dreaming of his next visit!  With Buster only being with Alan and I, I was worried about leaving him.  When I arrived to pick him up he seemed like he was right at home, hanging out with you and Chrissy!  You have a beautiful facility that I believe makes the pets feel comfy, and feel like they're at home!I'm going to pick up a couple of bags of Charlee Bear treats and bring them for you to see how your guests like them!  See you Friday morning!


Thank you,

Hi Lynn:


Just had to take a minute from all the unpacking to thank you for taking such good care of Sami.  I know he had a great time because it's the first time he's come home relaxed, happy, & right back on schedule instead of wet, dirty, sick, & skittzy!


If we ask him where Maggie is, the tip of his tail starts wagging.  He knows your name, & we told him he would see you soon. 


Sami sends lots of hugs....

Thanks again for the great care you gave our 2 dogs.  Compared to about a dozen different boarding experiences, Tru Luv Kennels is by far the best we've seen.  Our dogs returned home so relaxed and well-adjusted after staying with you.  We know that they were happy, and we could tell that they trusted you right from the time they met you.


We also loved the pictures you took of them playing with the other dogs.  That was such a nice thing to see, and we really appreciated the special effort you made in doing that.  It was obvious that they enjoyed the great yard to play in, and we know they were comfortable inside -- so clean and cool for them.


It is so nice to know we can board our dogs in a safe and enjoyable place when we need to.  The whole experience was PERFECT!


Our deepest thanks and best wished for continued success.  You have our business in the future.

Lisa and I would like to thank you for taking such great care of our dogs.  They seemed very comfortable there, which has never happened before.  It's very reassuring to us that we finally found a place we can leave the dogs without constantly worrying that they are unhappy.  Thank you so much and we'll definitely be leaving Max and Petey with you again.

I am sorry that I have taken this long to say thank you for taking such good care of Dusty and Kasey for us while we were gone.  I was very nervous leaving them, as we had never left them with a "stranger" before.  I did not need to worry, they were taken care of perfectly.....I should have worried about you all with Kasey around. :)  We couldn't get over how great it was to get the pictures you sent regularly via email showing both of them playing in the yard.  Again, thank you so much for taking such good care of our "babies" while we were away.  We now know if we need to leave them again that they have a safe and happy home away from home.
