My boyfriend and I adopted/rescued our new puppy through these guys and it was the worst experience. We waited a month to get him and he ended up with severe kennel cough. I believe it's because of the extremely poor conditions that the place is under.
Their staff is incredibly rude and wouldn't help or want to give out any information if I called to check up on our pup. They even gave us the WRONG medication for kennel cough! And our dog became even more sick!
Coshok's uses something caustic to clean their floors (our vet thought it was bleach) without rinsing properly. Killed the germs just fine, but it also burned the pads of both our dogs' feet, leading them to lick their feet constantly and then vomit because they were ingesting something they shouldn't. Our poor boxer couldn't walk properly for a week.
Extra bonus bad-points for Coshok's: When we walked into the vet and told them we'd had a negative experience with a local kennel, they immediately guessed which kennel it was.
Hire a petsitter if all the other kennels in town are full, but don't take your pups to Coshok's.
