We are proud of what our clients have to say about the care they received at Mis Amigos!
I have had Nicki for over a year now. He has been quite a pawful! I began to bring him to Mis Amigos last winter. Nicki was displaying behavior he had as a new puppy but becoming much more pronounced as he got older. I believed was aggressive towards strangers. I began to leave him for some time at Mis Amigos during the day in their great play area. I hoped playing with other dogs, as well as exposure to the staff at Mis Amigos, would help Nicki. And to some extent it did. But he was still aggressive towards any people he did not know. I love Nicki with all my heart, but he was getting close to 70 pounds and becoming very difficult to control. I was actually considering if I would have to give Nicki up, and it was heart breaking for me.
Then I met Gail Skee, the owner and head trainer of Mis Amigos. Gail told me she very much wanted to help and began to work with Nicki and me. I learned Nicki was not presenting aggressive dog behavior, but frightened dog behavior. And sharing what I knew of my shelter puppy's first days, much became clear regarding his behavior. I also began to work with Erin Bibles, the other incredible trainer at Mis Amigos. I worked with Nicki as they taught me, and the results are wonderful beyond words.
I continue to work closely with Gail, Erin, and the staff of Mis Amigos; Nicki continues to learn and so do I! They all saved my dog Nicki and me, giving us a life together. They gave, and continue to give, me tools, knowledge, trust and joy! This is a quote I believe is the heart of Mis Amigos which is written in the training area; "Beneath every behavior is a feeling. And beneath every feeling there is a need. When we meet that need rather than focus on the behavior, we begin to deal with the cause not the symptom". Gail, Erin, and the wonderful staff at Mis Amigos, CARE ABOUT EVERY SINGLE DOG, and they want to do all they can for our dogs and us. I cannot recommend Mis Amigos highly enough.

Since getting our first dog after moving to New Mexico fourteen years ago, except for veterinary services, Mis Amigos has been our go to place for our dogs needs: boarding, day care, training and especially grooming.
All of our dogs have loved it there, and big Emmett, who has been with us the longest, eleven and half years, has pretty much grown up in and out of Mis Amigos. Day care and play time there did so much for his socialization skills and he still loves it even though he is now a senior citizen. One of our females who is not so easy with other dogs, always got extra care and attention when she was introduced to a play yard with others, just to be sure that she was introduced slowly and did not feel threatened by the other dogs. That's a skill on the part of the staff that is beyond measure.
And the grooming services.....attentive, loving groomers who give us back sleek beauties. Emmett has grown up with Teresa and I think that she loves him almost as much as we do!!! So big thanks to Mis Amigos for being there for all of the beloved dogs of the Silver City area.....and especially our two!!!

Day care at Mis Amigos is Roadie's favorite place. He comes home tired and happy every time. Staff are attentive, and called me right away when they realized he wasn't himself, recognizing his behavior change as pain. He's fine now, and will be joining his buddies there again soon.
— Lauri Y.
Amazing place. I took my over active dog for some training and it helped a lot. Honestly wish I had done it with my previous dogs.

I have been using Mis Amigos for occasional boarding for many years and have always been very happy with their service. Recently I have been taking my English Bulldog for daycare, he loves it so much he doesn't want to come home! Everyone that works there is so good with animals (and people too).

I am grateful for the services Mis Amigos provides from social/doggy day care to the boarding and grooming services. We have used their services several times a year since we began taking our furr baby there.
— Shar W.
Staff was professional & friendly. They took good care of our dog. We requested playtime for him during his stay, which he was having when we arrived to pick him up. He was loving it!
— Linda O.
They take care of your pets, like it's their own. Caring and concerned about and changes, and they call you if they note any change in the pet.

My rescue puppy has been going to doggie daycare for a while now and I also have boarded her there for a weekend. They are great with her and caring and truly keep an eye on her. They are great with all the pets.

Mis Amigos staff is always happy to see me and my dog. Until he was 5 months old, he only knew his own family of dogs. Since he had not had more exposure to a wider world, the staff carefully introduced him to other dogs and watched over him during playtime. He has also benefited from puppy training. A year later, my dog is a happy member of the doggie day care family. Hillary has groomed him several times and he is always clean, beautiful, and perfectly clipped. Leaving him there during my days out of town is never a problem as he has this "home away from home" that he is so comfortable with. I highly recommend Mis Amigos for all aspects of pet care.

We have used Mis Amigos' services since we moved here 7 years ago. I am so grateful for the help I have received with several dogs. Before moving here we adopted an Australian Terrier who came with many issues. He was very reactive to other dogs and had severe separation anxiety. With Gail's help, he has now become the welcoming ambassador for the many rescue dogs that we have fostered over the past several years. We can take him anywhere without worrying that he will attack any dog we happen to meet on our walks. And, although the separation anxiety is still an issue, we are now able to leave him at Mis Amigos for day care and he actually enjoys playing with other dogs. This is nothing short of a miracle! Additionally we work with one of the breed rescues and have had to board a rescue on short notice while we make arrangements for the dog to be fostered until placed. Mis Amigos has always accommodated us and even helped us evaluate the dog's personality and behaviors so we could find the right home. Their observations and guidance has benefited so many of the rescues that we have placed over the years. We have a new rescue coming in tomorrow and we've already made arrangements for him to be boarded while we evaluate him. I look forward to working with Mis Amigos again. I recommend them highly!

Thank you for taking great care of Homer and Dante during our recent visit!
— Donna W.
I have five dogs and three cats. I trust Mis Amigos implicitly with my kids. The receptionist are super friendly and caring. Reminds me when the kids shots are due too. Groomers love my dogs and remember their individual personalities and health issues. Boarding Kennels are well run. Love the underfloor heating. They get heaps of daily attention and play. If you have to leave them behind when you go away, this is the place. They never hesitate to call if there's an issue. Seriously, what more could you want?
— Karen B.
Sid (the dog) like this place. He must have played all day as he slept all night. Lots of play area for different size and tempered dogs. Very friendly people. All seems to really love animals. Would use this doggie day care again when visiting Silver City.
