Ya'll are great! That my pups, Tygger and Gus, love staying with you is a testament to how good ya'll are. Thanks for all you do.

Very good experience. Opened up late to accommodate us. Nice place with good outdoor area also. Easy kennels to work with. Thanks Greg & Linda

AKM is a wonderful place your dogs to relax while you are out of town. The folks there love and understand dogs; the facility is sparkling clean; there is an outdoor play space. Our Molly hates leaving home but AKM is next best, to her way of thinking.

I never worry about Sulley and I know he is well taken care of and safe. He is not in a cage that is too small. He gets plenty of exercise. Thanks!

We're always pleased with the care our spoiled "senior citizen" dog receives. Also it's a plus that we can pick her up at a time other than originally scheduled. Glad we found them

Leaving your dog behind at times is worrisome. I found after visiting AKM Kennels I could go enjoy my vacation and not worry. So clean, respectful and thoughtful of the pets. They have a wonderful play area and AC for our babies. My pet went off to summer camp. That's how I felt. I will certainly use them again.

My pets are well taken care of every time. Thanks again Monty.

Wonderful experience! We had never left our dogs at a kennel before, our next door neighbor leaves their dog at AKM every time they go out of town. We have a puppy that is still teething & they gave him his chew treat every night, just like at home. Our dogs graze their food so they kept the bowl half full as we asked. They allowed our energetic puppy stay out for extra exercise periods & our older dog go back into the cooled kennel for a break AWAY from the puppy, who she has to hide from at home to escape his exuberance. If the need arises we will definitely take them back to AKM Kennels.

I am so glad we found AKM Kennels. Our two dogs stayed for 10 days while we were away on vacation. The owners took such great care of our pets! You can see how they truly care for your animals. The facility was so clean and plenty of room for your dogs to eat, play, and sleep. I will continue to trust them to care for my dogs whenever I am traveling. I live in Cedar Park, and it was about a 40 minute drive to Elgin -- and well worth the drive to have peace of mind that your cherished pets are safe and well cared for. I will highly recommend AKM Kennels to all my friends and family. -- Brigitte

Always clean and they take really good care of our fur babies.

A couple years ago, I was heading out of town and was looking for a place to board my coonhound, Finley. Every facility was full. Then someone suggested trying AKM Kennels in Elgin. The visit worked out just fine. Finley thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I do not see any reason to use any other kennel if you need a quality facility for your dog.

This is the fourth visit for Sinatra and he actually likes the visit @ AKM. Monte spent the time to develop a relationship with him. The kennels are very large and VERY clean. There is more than enough room for Sinatra to roam and explore. Complete trouble free care with a verbal report of his conduct and tendencies when picked up!!

This Kennel CARES! My dogs love going to AKM. They have dog friends and the owners also given them attention. The Kennel is safe and cooled, and they get to go out and play during the day. The price is reasonable and the location is convienient for me.

We've used AKM Kennels for about 2 years now, we love them! We've never had any problems, and I always feel comfortable leaving my dog with them. I love that each kennel has an inside and outside option for the dogs. They have a very flexible drop off/pick schedule, which is a bonus. We'll continue to use them to kennel our dog, and I'd definitely recommend them!

Excellent kennels and very caring people who run the boarding kennel. Very good rates also.

We have nothing but accolades for Monty, April, and Kinsey and the amazing job they've done with our 8 month old puppy, Marley. We felt confident in his care and so appreciate the personal attention that Marley received. We will definitely be using AKM in the future.

This was the first time I've ever boarded my dog, I must have looked at seven kennels before deciding on AKM. The kennel is not massive so your dog gets more one on one attention, the kennels are air conditioned and offer inside/outside doggie doors so your dog can go in and out of their own enclosure. The outside kennel area is shaded and so is the recreational area, which is nice given the summer heat. My dog came with a lot of baggage so to speak, he takes meds and has his own food routine which the owners did not mind following. I was also able to text the owners each day for an update on how my dog was doing. They offer a nice bath before your dog returns home for a small fee. Overall a great experience!

Koda, our Siberian Husky has stayed at AKM Kennels once or twice a year for several years. She has always been very well cared for. We live in Bastrop. I tried another kennel in the area but will always take Koda to AKM when I need to be out of town for an extended length of time. My son lives in College Station and he brings his Blood Hound Loretta to AKM in Elgin when we go on our family vacation. Great home away from home for dogs.

20 Jul 2015
The faclity was clean and there was a big play yard. The kennels were clean and well maintained. We will use AKM again for sure.

16 Jul 2015
They treated my dog very well, my dog was very scared and wouldn't eat at first. They helped my dog and kept trying different foods so that she would eat. He was even spree understanding when we told him we needed to board her longer. A++ would definitely use this kennel again.

I had an awesome experience boarding my Rotti with AKM Kennels! Monte was very welcoming and it made my vacation even better having to worry less! I recommend him to anyone looking for a carinh , affording boarding home.

29 Jun 2015
I feel so comfortable leaving my pets here. I don't worry about them when I'm gone. I've had to change times and days a few times after I've made my reservation and they really work with me. Will use them again and again.

27 Jun 2015
Monte is amazing with our pets and takes very good care of our dogs.. I can't see ever boarding my dogs with anyone else.

26 Jun 2015
Gave better than expected care to our dogs (4). Each is a different personanility that was recognized and treated accordingly. All four were happy and unaffected by their stay. Thank you for the best care of our family members.

25 Jun 2015
Monte and staff are awesome! I always feel sad when my pups arent able to come with us and have to stay away from home BUT my pups jump right out of the car and head inside like its a second home for them. Monte is great communicating with me daily to assure me they are all good.

25 Jun 2015
This is the best place away from home! Easy keeping and professional! Book today and I will probably see you there!

AKM Kennels is simply the best! It is clean, orderly, comfortable, has a great play yard and, best of all, Monty, the owner, is present on the property and is in the Kennels almost all the time. He LOVES dogs and understands them and really cares about their welfare. My whole dog-loving family takes our dogs to AKM.

15 Jun 2015
Monty was great and helped us out when our previous kennel was flooded. Our dog was really happy when we picked him up and you could tell he had a great time. We'll definitely be back again!

15 Jun 2015
AKM Kennels is by far the best kennel that I've ever taken my dogs to. Further, my family and several of my friends take their dogs there to stay, and we all fully intend to continue to do so.

14 Jun 2015
We were thrilled with AKM Kennels. It's clean and safe, and each kennel has it's own outdoor area, plus there is a large community area for the dogs. I will definitely board my dog there again.

I have two dogs under 15 lbs each. Daisy is a boisterous confident Jack Russell who has always done well after being boarded, regardless of where I've boarded her. Maggie on the other hand, is a terrier mix who started life out as a rescue dog. Needless to say, Maggie is somewhat shy and timid and doesn't take well to being boarded, no matter where she has been boarded before. She is usually a little thinner due to not eating (separation anxiety) and she is also withdrawn for a few days afterwards -- that is until now. After their most recent boarding at AKM which lasted for 7 days, both of my dogs were healthy and happy, even Maggie! I attribute this to the excellent owners who know dogs and train dogs and maintain a clean and secured environment that my dogs could share together. I will continue to use AKM kennels for my future boarding needs. Highly recommended!

We left for Memorial Day weekend and couldn't have been happier with the care we received for our three daschounds. The owner, was quite accomdating with our schedule and was available for us to call if need be. I would definitely recommend AKM Kennels to anyone needing care for their furry kids

I have sent my dog to board in this location since he was a puppy. They treat him very well and I every time he comes back home he is happy and tired. Just as how I'd like it. They allow interactions with other dogs compared to other boarding facilities and that is what I liked about choosing AKM Kennels. I have seen this location grow and change over time for the better. I highly recommend bringing your pet here.

07 Jun 2015
Very nice facility and owners. I felt at ease leaving my dog here. The owner trains bird dogs and that tells me they love dogs! When I picked my dog up, she was very happy and wagging her tail. I will definitely take her here again.

05 Jun 2015
Monty is great with our dogs and it's a nice, clean environment for our dogs. I would highly recommend AKM for anyone looking for a place to board their dogs!

05 Jun 2015
Excellent management and staff. Very caring and understanding. Exemplary facility. Easily worth three times the price.

25 May 2015
This is the kennel we always take our dog to. It is great! Monty is so caring towards the animals. I wish they had more in door areas, that is my only reason for not giving 5 stars. Despite that my indoor dog comes back in a great mood and utterly exhausted.

23 May 2015
Molly, our dog, and we really like AKM. The place is clean, well-kept, and built to keep dogs comfy and happy. Monty, the owner truly loves and understands dogs. This is a super home away from home for your dog while you're away.

I have boarded my dog Roscoe with AKM twice and have been very satisfied with their service. I definitely will continue to board Roscoe there and will recommend AKM to others!!! Mike V.

I am so glad I found Akm kennels they do a great kid and my dog loves going there Thank you Monty !

11 May 2015
We have left our dog here numerous times and she always seems to be well treated. They are very accommodating about the drop off and pick up times too.

11 May 2015
I have and will use AKM any time that I need to house my little poodle. She is now 13 yrs old is completely happy with them and I am also. . The owner is a great "host", he and his family take care of Ginger and do all to make her feel loved and taken care of. Last stay there, Ginger was there 4 nights and she was given a bath before pickup and AKM even took the time to treat some sores she had that I had taken medicine to treat. I recommend them and faithfully will use AKM again when ever it become needed again. Thank you for all your care and clean well kept facilities Elgin TX.

These people are awesome! I have a young Blue Heeler that has stayed with them since he was a puppy. My other dog is 8 years old, so they have been great with both ends of the spectrum. I wouldn't use anyone else to care for my dogs. I recently moved and am not right down the road from them anymore. They are worth the drive.

04 May 2015
Our dogs stay at AKM Kennels every time we have to leave town, which averages out to at least once a month. The owners of AKM take great care of our dogs. They give them love and attention. Our dogs are always happy when we pull up to the Kennel for drop off. We have always been pleased with AKM and would recommend AKM to others without reservation.
