Excellent, excellent, excellent from start to finish! My puppy Bella, was uncontrollable, she's a... German Shorthaired Pointer (Bird dog) she was a puppy being a puppy. She was always jumping up on us, she almost knocked us over. We are following our training and her training and everything is wonderful, we have built up to a stay position of 10 minutes. Andy is GREAT, he went so far as to bring her home and go over Bella's training with us. He is the BEST and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Smith Farms Board and Train Program. We did the 3 week program and WORTH every penny. Thanks Andy, Bella is doing great and my Dad works with her twice a day!read more

Great place. Very nice staff, big property for pups to play. My yard is a bit too small for my... bloodhound, so I enjoy bringing her here for some exercise and running room. My dog is a rescue and was undersocialized as a pup, and is a bit shy of people. The staff here do a very good job of interacting with her despite her shyness, and she is becoming more and more confident as I've been bringing her out there. We'll be a regular!read more

By far one of the cleanest kennels ever!!! My experience was warm-welcoming from the time I stepped... in the door... Believe me just 2 days with their kennel technician Najir, and your doggy-dog is going to be in a better shape than before you dropped them off. 🥰. I couldn’t have gone to a better place !read more

Our first experience boarding our dog Paco for the day was excellent. We returned to a very happy... and excited pup who promptly laid across the back seat to snooze on the ride home, which NEVER happens. He was very happy around all the staff and almost dragged me back inside the fence as he was apparently not done having a good time. If he is happy, I'll take his word for it every time.read more

My Great Pyrenees started with Darrell and the Smith Farms Kennel when she was a puppy. Every... experience has been excellent. Harriet received obedience training during an extended stay when we were out of town. The trainer used techniques specifically called for by her breed and disposition. Each stay at Smith Farms offers the friendly, safe environment we want for our dog. I highly recommend a visit where you will find a clean, well thought out space and activities to keep your pup happy while you are away.read more

Recently I had to leave town and needed to board my dog in the Atlanta area. Despite numerous... kennels being closer to me, I chose Smith farms which is a 45min drive from my home. As a person that has experienced many different kennels, I am happy to say this business deserves a 5 star rating. If you are in the Atlanta area and are looking for a great boarding situation for your furry friend, this is the place. Check them out!read more

We just got Hendrix the Flat coat goldendoodle back from the 3 week training program. Hendrix went... to Smith Farms at 8 months old and as hyper as he could be. He didn’t know the difference between when it was ok to play and jump and when he should be calm. After two weeks I went to train with Andy and Hendrix and I was SHOCKED at how obedient and calm he was. Flash forward to today- one week later and he is amazing. Andy brought Hendrix all the way home to Woodstock and spent ample time with my family and I in our environment teaching us the commands and gestures to continue keeping Hendrix “in line” at home. I can confidently say that Hendrix has received the best training and has already turned into an awesome dog after 3 short weeks. This is by far the best decision we have made for our family. We will continue to work with him on his drills that Andy taught us all and I can’t wait to see where Hendrix will be in a year.I did A LOT of research on training programs and trust me when I say that if you’re hesitant or iffy about choosing this program- GO FOR IT. you will NOT be disappointed.Thank you to Andy and the team for EVERYTHING. we will definitely see you soon for some meet ups and boarding in the future!Cheers from Woodstock!read more

I watched staff members from Smith Farm interact with dogs a few times at Leonora Church Dog Park... and was very impressed with how patient they were with the dogs. So, I went over to talk to one of the staff members who turned out to be the owner. He invited me to come and take a tour of his facility.I showed up at Smith Farm unannounced and took a tour with a young lady named Amanda. She was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The kennel is very secure with a small dog and big dog area. There are also several gates that a “run away” dog would have to get through to escape the facility. There was no urine, poop or dog smell detected, the entire place was very clean. I arrived during the small dog play time and was very impressed with the care and attention that was being given to the small dogs.I boarded my dog, Squirt, with them for three days. Squirt usually does not eat much when I board him and has always been a bit weird acting, clingy every time I bring him home from any kennel. That was NOT the case with his stay at Smith Farm! He actually ate all of his food, all of his treats and most importantly he acted totally normal for him when we arrived home. Even my family commented on how he was not clingy and was his “normal” self.When I picked him up one of the workers told me that the owner had actually taken Squirt on one of his walks. I do not know any owner who does that.I also received an email from the owner thanking me for trusting them with Squirt’s care, a little about his stay and about how much Squirt enjoyed his walks.I would give Smith Farm 100 stars if it was possible. I have been telling everyone at the dog parks about Smith Farm , along with any dog owners that I speak with. I am NOT easily impressed and am extremely picky about who I allow to interact with Squirt . I absolutely LOVE Smith Farm and Squirt will not be staying with anyone else!Marquita McAdams & Squirtread more

Our GSD is an only dog. She enjoys the day care activity at Smith Farms and we've noticed she is... less reactive to other dogs when we take her to the park. Her exposure to other Smith Farm dogs has been good for us all! In addition, the caring staff is top notch. She looks forward to her time there. Most days she arrives home ready for a nap.read more

We absolutely LOVE our Smith Farms Boarding Kennels family. I started with taking my then new puppy... in July 2018, and as a brand new fur baby mom I was super nervous on leaving him with anyone, especially with people I didn't know so I set an appointment to meet the new owners at that time Darrell and Kristin, who instantly gave me a feeling that this was the right place! Darrell gave me a tour of the facility and I was pleasantly surprised how clean it was! That was a big plus for my OCD! The entire staff was professional and friendly.The Farm as I call it, is caring, loving, and knowledgeable of what our needs are as pet owners on and off site. They're our family. My BIG boy's name is Otis Henry who's well known and loved by everyone there, he gets excited as soon as we hit the graveled path because he knows the fun is about to begin! Why go anywhere else when the Farm has everything you need and more... hands on training, walks, year round activities, cuddle time, grooming, all the pictures and videos you could ask for, and most importantly plenty of love and patience. I refer everyone I know who has a dog and they've come to love it too! Trust me once you go, you'll never look anywhere else 💯! Thank you Smith Farms Boarding Kennels for everything! You ROCK!!read more

This is a nice kennel located in a quiet area and farm like area. My thoughts were that this place... would be a good place for long term boarding with the mindset that my dog would be able to run in a well spaced area, large lawn. As it turns out, the dogs can't run in the entire 15 acers but are rather confined to a fenced area. Besides that, good place!read more

I sent my dog Mable (1.5 year old hound mix) to Smith Farm's 4 week behavior modification board and... train program. For the past year, Mable has struggled with high anxiety, severe leash reactivity (jumping, lunging, and aggression towards other dogs walking past) and resource guarding issues that eventually escalated to her attacking my other 10 year old dog in the house several times. I was referred to Smith Farms from a couple friends and I am so pleased with the training program. We are out of state (Tennessee) and Andy was very flexible and worked with us to schedule our on-site training lessons in her last week. Andy was very knowledgeable on dog psychology/training and very patient with us to make sure we were comfortable with all the skills + techniques needed to help Mable succeed at home. They also boarded my older dog for the final week so they could work Mable around him and understand their relationship. After her training, Mable is drastically calmer, obedient, heels on leash with no reaction to other dogs, non-reactive to my other dog, and able to practice impulse control around food and distractions. Andy and Darrell taught me the reasons why she was reacting poorly before and what I can do moving forward to keep her balanced, calm and unaffected by external factors. If you are struggling with any of these issues, I highly recommend reaching out to Smith Farms today!read more

REF: DOG TRAININGIf I could give this place 1,000 stars, I would!! Darrell (the owner) is an... excellent dog trainer, and 100% knows what he's talking about!I've been looking for dog trainers for over a year, but a lot of Atlanta dog trainers use e-collars--even for basic training of non-aggressive dogs--which I do not like.Luckily for me, during one of my many trips to Lenora Park, I saw Darrell training a dog. At first, I thought it was his dog because the dog was extremely attentive...and then I saw him give the dog to the owner "for practice"; and the dog wasn't as attentive. After a few words to help the owner realize what she was doing wrong, the dog was attentive and the owner had a huge smile on her face. This was all in a span of 5 minutes so it was amazing to watch!The following week, I saw Darrell training two more dogs and the same thing happened... To me, it was like magic so I flagged him down to get more information / get his business card.When I got home, I went to his website and thought his training prices were pretty high, so I didn't immediately reach out. Fast forward two months, my YouTube training videos weren't working out so well (haha 🙂 ) so I organized a group training session with Darrell and we definitely learned a lot. Like they say, "You get what you pay for!!"Side-note: there was a slight miscommunication with scheduling but Darrell was more than gracious to make it up to us. He offered us a free, 1-hour training session so I was very impressed! But it also made me wonder why a few low ratings complained about Smith Farms' customer service?? Granted, it was only two reviews, so I'll just assume those reviewers had unrealistic demands.Lastly, I will definitely refer more friends to Darrell / Smith Farms dog training, and if I ever need to board my dog, I will definitely try their boarding. I'm also going to try them for grooming, too!read more

We were a little skeptical about the transition with the new owners who took over several years... ago, but after a brief tour and warm inviting converstaion we felt really comfortable that our dog Shadow would be left in caring hands, There is no other Kennel that I have EVER left any of our dogs with that reaches the professionalism, and caring nature of Darrell and his wife (Smith Farms). Their Kennel is clean, well maintained, and the staff is very professional. During a trip out of town for the XMAS holiday we left our dog in the only hands we thought were worthy after our VET deemed it suitable for us to travel. The one place we felt comfortable with was SMITH FARMS.KENNEL Unfortunately it was during this time that our beloved Shadow took a turn for the worst. While thousands of miles away Darrell and his wife showed our beloved Shadow exemplary care that most seniors would die for in today's nursing home. They comforted him in a way that a mother would comfort a sick child, and even kept in constant contact with our Vet concerning our dog's condition. Our Shadow did not make it, but the care and concern showed by Smith Farms will NEVER be forgotten. Thank you Smith Farms for your dedication, and professionalism during our bereavement time. We love for the love you showed our Shadow, which gave us comfort thousands of miles away.Patriciaread more

Leaving your fur baby is tough, but when you know she is happy and that she is receiving excellent care, it allows you to enjoy yourself on vacation. Darrell and the whole staff are always kind and professional. We never worry about the quality of care Ruby is receiving we know its top notch!read more

We have 2 high-energy lab mixes that are 10 months apart. While we had no problems with pups... before, I failed at training these two properly and it was getting impossible to have people or other animals visit as my two were just too much of a welcoming committee . We did a lot of research on professional help; visited a couple other places but when we came to Smith Farms I knew almost immediately we found a solution. The place is absolutely immaculate; the trainers were both kind and very knowledgeable. The value we received is amazing. My dogs are back with me after 3 weeks at the farm and they are transformed! They were patient in training us and are on call if we need any specific guidance.With training there are monthly "graduate" gatherings in different parks where you can bring your dog for free and benefit from additional training and socialization We will also use them for boarding if we ever get past COVID and begin to travel again. Plenty of play time a huge facility and - again VERY clean. One of my dogs needed medication for a skin allergy and they were happy to handle the meds while they were there. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!read more

We recently chose Smith Farms for their 3 week board and train program for our 9 month old rescue... dogs, Rose & Rigby. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but completely WORTH IT, for several reasons....We are a busy family with two middle-schoolers, and did not have the ability for consistent training that we know is needed (my husband and I have trained previous dogs in group classes that met once per week, and then kept up with training on our own...this was when kids were small and not involved in a ton of activities!)The entire team at Smith Farms are clearly dog lovers. I felt they took the time to get to know our dogs and their (very different!) personalities and motivations. The transformation of our dogs is remarkable...they are still the same sweet dogs, but now much better behaved. Our main 'ask' was that they walk better on a leash, so that our kids could confidently control them on walks in the neighborhood. Darrell and Andy (trainers) spent 2-3 hours with our whole family on 2 separate occasions to ensure we were all confident with the commands to reinforce what the dogs had learned during their training. During this training, Darrell (the owner) noticed that Rigby (more ornery one!) was pushing the boundaries a bit, especially with our kids. He offered to keep Rigby for a few more days to ensure commands were reinforced...this was unexpected and appreciated.Yes, we missed them like crazy...3 weeks is a long time! But the staff posted videos and pictures on their FB page, which was fun for all of us to see their progress. Overall, I highly recommend Smith Farms! We have already made a boarding reservation there for an upcoming trip.read more

Highly, highly recommended. If you’re looking for a place to board your dog where they’ll get... plenty of well supervised outdoor play and exercise, human and canine interaction, and even training (at an extra fee) during the stay, this it it. The staff is kind, attentive, accessible and very much dog lovers. So glad I found Smith Farms the next time I have to travel.read more

This is a great place to board your dog(s)! Our 1 dog wiggles and whines as soon as she sees a... suitcase come out... she is ready to go to the "farm". Love how they know our dogs by name... remember them from one visit to the next, and come by on their day off just to say goodbye to our pups! Clean kennels, lots of big open fenced places for pups to run... and a doggie pool in the summer! It's a drive for us to take them to Smith Farms but well worth it!read more

Initially I brought my puppy here for daycare, then boarding while out of town. Daryl noticed some... behavioral issues with Boomer my blue heeler. Truthfully I was caucus and thought they were trying to push their board and train program on me. A couple more times there and I was informed that Boomer had bitten someone and was acting aggressive. Having a close by kennel is important so I agreed to a month long training.Huge difference in Boomers behavior. He no longer thinks he is in charge and obeys all the commands. I have had to keep up with him afterwards, so that he doesn't revert. Daryl has been very helpful to us, can't say enough about the place. Feel free to use me as a reference if needed.read more

I took my year-old miniature schnauzer here for training. My dog was very anxious around new... people, especially children, and this translated into aggression. When she bit my 15 month old grand daughter, I knew I had to do something. It has only been two weeks, and I CANNOT BELIEVE the transformation. I left her a precious little monster, and now she is a precious, well-behaved, pet! I haven't had her around the babies yet, but I will update my post when her training is complete. I am SO pleased with my investment!read more
