I have read what was written about applebrook and you must have just caught them at a bad time. I just started taking my lab Abby there and when i toured the facility everything was very clean. It didn't smell like a kennel at all. My Abby loves to play with other dogs and she had alot of fun there. I also just joined their dog park. 2 acres totally fenced in I love it she can run till her hearts content its great!
