I highly recommend RCM Kennels. Our boxer loves them.

Vicki Edwards

RCM Kennels was recommended by my Veterinarian when I returned from Germany in 2015. I appreciated Ron taking the time for me to visit and tour RCM prior to boarding Beau & Alex for the first time. Ron and his Family are professional, courteous, caring and accommodating. Leaving my boys with them was a no brainer! The boys love when I prepare for a business trip and see me packing my bags. I have to tell them Ron will be here in the morning to pick you up. RCM staff, boarding accommodations, online reservations & daily updates, prices, grooming, play time, pick up & drop off service, and other amenities are top of the line. I have traveled for 30 years with the government from Coast to Coast and 20 of those years spent Overseas. I have used other kennels and RCM beats them hands down for all the reasons stated above. I highly recommend RCM Kennels. They take care of your loved ones as if they were their own. Bob - Bardstown

Our Labrador Sammie has vacationed at RCM several times now for up to two weeks at a time. We feel at ease receiving the daily email updates and know that she is in good hands. There is no one else we would allow to care for her. Truly a great place for your family pet!

Offers pick up & drop off, which is a huge help when planning your next trip. Nightly report cards and my pup came back very happy. Will certainly be using again for our next trip. Thanks guys, you|re the best!

We left our lab Ellie for 8 days while we were out of town. RCM did a fabulous job taking care of her. We felt confident she was in safe and competent hands. We recieved a daily report card letting us know how she did that day. We will definitely use them again in the future. Thanks Ron!

I have been with RCM Kennels for 8 years now, and our dog was also bred through them. They have always been top notch. Clean facilities, great care of our dog. Kennels have AC and heat depending on time of year. The caregivers are great people and really care about the animals. I wouldn’t take my dog anywhere else!

I am so pleased with RCM Kennels. Our 6 month old English Shepard Liberty had such great care for her two days during Thanksgiving. Ron was so professional and accommodating to us on short notice. During her stay he spent time with her getting her used to the doggie door. And he sent us email updates daily. We will remember RCM on future trips.

I would like to highly recommend Ron and Cathy (RCM Kennel) for their care of our 3 year old border collie Loch!!! Loch is a very active dog and boarding at RCM allows her to come and go as she desires, to play and run outside. We got daily updates on how her day had been & Ron even sent me a couple of videos during her stay of Loch outside joyously running around. Our minds were at ease knowing Ron & Cathy would treat her as one of their own! RCM Kennels is the best choice you can make!!!!

Great experience with RCM Kennels! Daily updates put our mind at ease that our pets were doing fine! Will definitely use them again!

I can’t say enough good about RCM Kennels. I never worry about our boxer Cinnamon when she is there. Their pickup and drop off service has been wonderful for us. Cinnamon is always glad to see them and runs to their vehicle and jumps in.

We have been using RCM kennels for about a year now. Our dog Macy loves going to RCM kennels...she is familiar with the place since it||s the only place we have boarded her and I know she is well taken care of. I love that she gets let out to play 3 x a day and is in a kennel where she can go in or outside as she pleases. Ron has experience with dogs of all breeds and I know if our dog needed anything...she is in good hands. Their facility is well maintained, and the daily report cards while we are away bring a smile to my face knowing she is okay. I would recommend RCM kennels to anyone needing a place to board their loved one!

The first year we used RCM, We had 5 dogs; 1 a foster for the humane society, two others were meant to be fosters that joined the family while we searched for the best fit, and the two others were the original two we had adopted that started our love for dogs.
The very week we were leaving for a trip, our original dog sitter dropped us due to the separation anxiety of one of the fosters. Panicked, we called everywhere. Even a hour out of our way. No where gave me an easy feeling as RCM; When we met with them and saw the place and the services they offered for our animals, I kept thinking we would never be able to afford it, there has to be a catch. But, there was none and they were cheaper than my prior kenneling service. We received report cards every single day on each dog, pictures were texted to us. I never worried if my babies were ok. I knew they were safe, being fed, and well cared for. Not only that, when we came back, he did not charge for the dog we were fostering for the humane society. They truly have hearts of gold. We are in our third year of using them for our trip to Florida, I honestly would be lost if I did not have these guys to trust to watch my "kiddos" - thank you all for your continued dedication and giving your hearts to loving these animals

I might be biased, but we have the best bulldog on earth. Penelope has absolutely exceeded our expectations, and we got very lucky with her. She|s 4 now, and she is the most well-behaved, active, smart, and loving dog you could possibly ask for. She never spent a single day in a crate, and has never touched anything that|s not hers or been destructive in any way. She|s also an absolute clown and keeps us laughing daily. If you remember, she was the very last one left in her litter and you had to hold onto her for an extra two weeks when we were in Europe so she was all alone when we got her, but there|s no way anyone got a better one than her out of that litter; it|s not possible.

We moved to Los Angeles a few years ago from Cincinnati, and we take Penelope hiking, and to the beach several times per month; she loves water and knows how to swim. She has no health or breathing problems whatsoever, and has always been at a healthy weight. She|s just perfect.

I love the care Indy receives when he is at RCM Kennels. I don|t have to worry when I am away, I know he will be taken care of just like he is at home. I also love the pick up and drop off service. It makes life much easier and for the small fee it is sooo worth it. Indy even feels like he is going on vacation when he sees Andrew pull up to get him.
Thanks for the excellent care you take with my baby.

Hi Ron and Cathy,
I hope all is well with you and your family. I just wanted to thank you all so much for taking care of Chance and Honey when we went to Florida. That was the first time that I had ever boarded the dogs and I was nervous about it, as if they were my kids, but I would use your services again anytime. Cathy, thanks for your hospitality and putting my mind at ease when we were there. I really appreciate it. Take care and have a nice summer.

I had the pleasure of boarding my yellow Lab “Buck” at Ron and Cathy’s facility. Ron was more than willing to accommodate my situation and had room for Buck on a holiday weekend.
My dog is very “sensitive” when being placed into new situations. I am very “picky” at where I board my dog. I can say that Buck seemed very happy and healthy after his stay at RCM kennels.
When I arrived at the kennel everything was sanitary. The kennel that housed Buck had enough room for him to run and get outside. Also, Ron and Cathy treated me very well and they were extremely accepting of Buck’s daily routine. I felt that Ron and Cathy treated my dog as if he was their own pet. I would definitely recommend RCM kennels to anybody and I will certainly kennel Buck there again.

Hi Ron,
Gary and I would just like to thank you and commend you for the great job you did while our dogs Chico and Scotty were boarders at your kennel. We were very pleased and would definitely use your facility again if and when we are in the area. There are very few kennels that are as accommodating as yours. Thank you again and hopefully we will be back down that way again soon!

Dear Ron and Cathy, Steve and I were so pleased with the way you cared for Belle and Scarlett while we were out of town. Your rates were so reasonable and I felt you treated our “babies” the way you would treat your own. We will certainly be using your services in the future! Thanks again, Claire and Steve Gaffney

Claire and Steve Gaffney

Hello Ron and family, I am happy to say that I was pleased with your care of our little Miss Belle and Kitty, it was a relief of pressure to know that while we were on our vacation that our pets were well cared for and that we didn|t have to worry over them. Thank you for the care you gave them for us.

Also the little kitten you gave us is so sweet, we named her Sandy Blue because of her sandy color and blue eyes, she|s trying to eat everything and growing so fast. Her and Kitty love having each other to play with. Kitty is only just turning 1 year old himself so he has the energy to keep up with Sandy Blue, they are so cute together. Thank you for everything and if we|re ever in your area again, I wouldn|t hesitate to leave our pets with your family again.

We were very pleased with Coco|s experience. He came home happy and healthy. Thank you. I have told my friend about your kennels and will continue to do so. It is a relief to know there is a safe place for him to stay when we are out of town.
Thanks again. Becky

My husband and I decided to board our male Yorkie, Toby, while we went on vacation this summer. We were very nervous since we had only ever left Toby with family and he is a very "high-strung" dog. When we dropped Toby off, Ron and Cathy really put our minds at ease. I was pleased with the cleanliness of the kennels, and even the temperature since I had been worried about how Toby, and inside dog, would react to being in a kennel. Ron played with Toby to get him used to everything and allowed him to run around and "investigate." My husband and I had a great trip, but were worried about our "baby" at times. Like a new mother, I called every 2 days to check on him, and the Morris family was so kind. Cathy even promised to tell Toby we loved him! (We|re a little silly, I know.) So two weeks ago when Daniel and I had to leave town for a weekend we knew right away who we could trust with our little boy. This time when we dropped Toby off, instead of appearing nervous, he jumped out of the car and ran up to Ron like they were best friends. That made me feel so good! I|d definitely recommend RCM Kennels to anyone looking for a place to leave their dogs. I especially recommend it for over-protective "parents" like us. We know that Ron and Cathy will treat Toby just like he is their own pet.

Ron & Cathy,
Just a note to say thank you and what a God sent you and your services are to me!! Not only are you kind and caring folks, but its obvious that my dogs love staying with you all because when you come to pick them up they go flying up into your van!! It’s not easy getting two German shepherds and Cockapoo to the kennels and your prompt pickup services are worth their weight in gold! We have and will continue to recommend your services to our friends and are grateful for all that you do!

Dear Ron and Cathy Morris and family,
We want to thank you so much for taking such excellent care of Neeka and Ruby. I was so impressed with how large and clean the kennels are but even more so with your integrity and professionalism. I was happy to see our husky, who seems to be an astute judge of character and who does not take to many people very quickly, went right up to you! Thanks again, so much. We look forward to seeing you again and I enthusiastically recommend your kennel. Sincerely,
The Halla family

Mr. Morris,
My family has used dog kennels for 9 years now, all the way from Mildenhall England to Florida and now in Kentucky. We have never experienced the above and beyond service you have provided to care for our dog. Max seemed to enjoy greatly his time spent there and we will most definitely use your kennels in the future. Your pickup and drop off service was so appreciated during the busy times of the holidays. The rates for that service and the boarding fit right into my budget as well. Thanks for the care you have given our family pet.

I would like to give a huge thanks for the care my dogs, emma and eleanor recieved at RCM Kennels. Emma is a rescue dog, and very skittish of strangers. From the start she allowed herself to be petted, an almost unheard of event. She usually has to meet you 4-5 times before you can pet her. Both dogs were happy to see me, but it was more like they had stayed with family instead of strangers. No pouting or attitude later on either. I would highly recommend this kennel, and am happy to know they|ll be there for return visits.

When my Wife and I first heard about RCM kennels we went to check out the facilitys to see if it met our standards. Our dogs are part of our family and we have very high standards when it comes to a kennel to board our dogs. Ron was eager to show us the kennels and we were very impressed with the cleanliness and the large area for the dogs to exercise. This showed us right away that he had nothing to hide and he spent 30 minutes showing us around and telling us how the dogs would be allowed to exercise during the day. I felt his rates were reasonable as well. We would not be able to pick up our dog until Sunday evening and Ron said that would not be a problem at all. This was a big plus as well. A friend of mine called me the day after I picked up my dog to ask me what I thought of the kennel as he was boarding his dog as well. I told him that he had nothing to worry about. I know that in the future, RCM will be my kennel of choice to board my dogs.

Thanks so much for taking Atticus on such short notice. I felt that your boarding facility is A+ and your explanation how Atticus would be cared for was more than I had expected. I had no worries. Your customer service was great as well. I would bring Atticus back anytime. I would also recommend any one to bring there bulldog with his wide range of experience with this breed. Thank you so much again.

Ron -
Having recently used the boarding services of RCN Kennels we can definitely recommend your kennels. We boarded our two dogs, a Flat Coat Retriever and a Border Collie (Molly & Maggie) and found the facilities were very appropriate to our preferences as we are not happy about having them "caged" as is customary in some kennels. We found you very accommodating to hours for drop off and pick up and were appreciative. The pens were very clean, and safe, and having access to an outside area is nice. We also like the comforting knowledge of having someone be there as opposed to "visits" by custodians. You impressed me as being a very caring person and we would definitely use RCN Kennels again.

Good afternoon Ron: Thanks to you and Mrs Morris for taking such good care of our "girls." I|ll certainly keep you in mind for the future and I|d be delighted to recommend your services to my fellow animal lovers. If any of your prospective customers ask you for references, please feel free to give them my contact information.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Morris,
Thank you for taking such good care of our girl, Skye, during our recent trip out of state. We appreciate your willingness to have us bring Skye out for a brief tour and introduction prior to boarding her; it made us feel much better to leave her with a familiar face! We found your kennel to be exactly the sort of home-away-from-home we wished to find for our pup; not only the neatness and cleanliness of the kennel itself and the beautiful countryside surrounding it, but also the abundant space to run and play, and the one-on-one attention she and her Frisbee received.
As I told you on our first visit, Skye came to us on March 25, 2009 as a 6 month old pup. We found her to be a little intimidated around other animals, although she readily accepts the friendship of our family and friends. After her stay at your kennel, Skye has become much more comfortable and laid-back around other animals; when I arrived to pick her up, she seemed happy and healthy and was in no great hurry to leave. We can only assume that is due to the favorable conditions she experienced during her stay, and we are very pleased to have the option of such a comfortable facility nearby for those times when she will not be traveling with us. We appreciate your flexibility in scheduling drop-off and pick-up times, and it is good to know that you also offer a pick-up and drop-off service in the event it is needed.
Thanks once again for your professionalism and for your care and attention to detail. There was no item, however small, that was overlooked or forgotten. We will definitely bring Skye back for a visit when we travel, and we will certainly recommend RCM Kennel to our friends.

We had the best experience with you guys! The pick-up was so convenient and I appreciate you working around our circumstances. We will definitely be using you in the future, thank you so much for your help!

Thanks for caring for my two Boxers Harley Fatboy and Deuce. Very nice facility you have there and your pricing is an excellent value, you were personally recommended by the Elk Creek Vet.

We were delighted with the care that you provided our girls. We felt good about leaving them there and never once worried that they would not be taken care of. Thank you so much for caring for them while we were away. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends.
Thanks once again.

I wanted to thank you for the excellent care you provided for my dog, Dempsey. Your facilities and grounds were way more than I had expected and far surpassed any other kennel we have ever used. I want to especially thank you for helping us at the last minute. When a minor emergency kept us from making it home on time you were able to keep him for an extra night without any hassle. That was such a relief. Its nice to know Dempsey has a "home away from home" when we travel.

Thank you again, we will definitely be calling the next time Dempsey needs a place to stay!

Hello Ron,
I wanted to let you know how pleased we were with your handling of our dogs over the Christmas holiday.
It|s nice to know that we have your facilities available for future stays.

We LOVE RCM Kennels and would not hesitate to use your services again when needed. We have also recommended you to friends. We have not had any need recently because we have someone who takes care of all of our animals when we are out of town (dogs, cats, chickens, horses, cattle, etc).
Many blessings to you all in the New Year. We will continue to enthusiastically recommend you.

Kelli Morgan

We had our two dogs boarded here at RCM Kennels back in June 2012 and we had a great experience with them, thanks again. :)

Jessica Nelson

Thanks so much for taking such good care of Coalman for us. When special circumstances came up and we had to extend our trip we never worried about Coalman. One phone call and we knew he would be cared for. I really liked getting the report card emails to let us know how he was doing. Thanks again!

The Best Boarders!!!!! RCM. We trust our Rayne and Little Joe for |stay -overs |

Susie Dempsey

We|ve often told people you|re the best kennel we|ve ever used, because it|s true. I love that your wife babied our Springer Spaniel, Jake. Jake is nearing the end of his time and the care and kindness provided by RCM Kennels when we had to travel will always be a great memory. We will definitely keep you in mind when we travel in the future.. we just might not be able to use your pick-up service.. We live at Fort Dix, New Jersey now.

Beverly Shaddox

I wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service. We were in a bind over Christmas and we were so happy to use your kennel! Thank you for taking such good care of our dogs. Keep up the good work! We will definitely use your kennel again in the future!
P.S. The daily email report cards were great!

Heather Barham

RCM Kennels was the perfect option for my dog, Bruno. It can be difficult to travel when you have pets. Knowing Bruno was in great hands allowed for peace of mind while we were away. They even sent report cards daily to let me know how Brunos day went! Great set-up, very friendly and professional! We will definitely return for future needs!

Megan Hutchins

Beau & Alex enjoyed their vacation. I know I am a Veteran and \"hard core\", but my kryptonite are kids and animals. My dogs are my kids. I will not hesitate to recommend your services to my friends and co-workers. Beau and Alex look forward to their next vacation.

Bob Maciag

We had never boarded our dogs anywhere before so I was nervous to leave them but I couldn|t be happier with RCM. I know our babies were in great hands! They were perfectly happy and safe. And I loved the daily report cards!

Kayla Long

We love RCM Kennesl!! Sam is always clean, happy, and healthy after his stay. I love that they take the time to send a daily report card. I really appreciate Ron and his family for taking such good care of my Sam.

Stacy Clemens

Very pleased with this business. My dog was very well cared for, clean and happy when we picked her up. Love the report cards they send. My Sadie has another vacation booked at RCM in September!

We really appreciate the care that Ron and his family give our Skye when she visits and are thankful we have such a great option for boarding her when we cannot take her with us. She is always in great shape when we pick her up, and it|s so nice to get the daily report cards from RCM!
