    I have been taking my dog Nacho to Fairfield Pet Lodge for the past six months and he absolutely loves it. He is treated like part of the family and whenever we ask Nacho if he would like to go to "Anton's" he gets extremely excited - an obvious sign of how much he enjoys going. Anton has really looked after us - he is flexible with our pick up and drop off times and always goes the extra mile to make sure Nacho is well looked after. We wouldn't want to take our dog anywhere else and would highly recommend them. Kylie Haack
