About this pro

Rene is no stranger to the pet industry. As a matter of fact, he’s spent over 25 years building and expanding his pet grooming and boarding facilities in Burbank and Glendale. His first taste of the industry began when he started Pet Rush, a boutique pet shop at Kenneth Village in Glendale. Rene served as the premier dog groomer for celebrities and neighbors of Glendale’s prestigious Northwest District. Pet Rush was recognized and awarded by the City of Glendale as the city’s “First Rescue-Only” pet store. Pet Rush became a model rescue-only store known nationwide and recognized by many pet organizations like the Best Friend’s Animal Society and the Humane Society of the United States for setting the standard for protecting animal welfare.

As the rate of pet-ownership continued to grow, so did Rene’s business. In 2007 Rene opened his first doggy day care & boarding for dogs and cats in Glendale, called Glendale Pet Resort. In 2012 he started Pet Rush Inn Burbank, complete with overnight boarding, day care, training, and grooming. Rene completely renovated the 7,000 sq. ft. facility adding all new air conditioned stalls, surveillance cameras, and greatly expanding the play area. Pet Rush Inn was recognized as Burbank’s Best two years in a row, and has 5/5 star reviews on Yelp.

After getting Pet Rush Inn fully operating with strong clientele. Being a driven entrepreneur Rene came across the chance to own Double Dog Dare Ya – another established pet resort in Burbank. Rene quickly seized the opportunity and went to work to ensure the same standards and quality were being met. Double Dog Dare Ya is the latest facility to be added to Rene’s family business. His passion for fostering a safe, fun, and relaxing environment for pets (and their owners) lives on. Welcome to the latest chapter!

    If you are looking for a doggie daycare that is a fun, clean, and safe place for your pup that will put your mind at ease, look no further! I have been using Double Dog's services for the past year as my puppy grew to an adult. Each time we arrive he is pulling at the leash with excitement to get inside. The staff is extremely attentive and kind. Their grooming services are great, and the live cam will let you see just how much fun your pup is having. I have also used their board and train service with my dog, and couldn't recommend it more. Kevin is an exceptional trainer who uses positive reinforcement to work with dogs of all levels and experience. He sends updates on your dog's progress and is open to answering any and all questions. Plus, my dog loves seeing him, so he clearly enjoyed his training! In our case, Kevin worked with my dog to reduce his reactivity on walks- lunging at other dogs, jumping on people, etc. Now we are able to go on walks without crossing the street to avoid other dogs, and can walk by fence-fighting dogs without a struggle. I would highly recommend board and train for anyone needing help with training.

    Recently had my hyper English Bulldog Gunther boarded for the weekend. Gunther had such a fun time playing and running around with his new dog and human friends. My big guy is still recovering from such a wild fun weekend. The staff was always very assuring every time I talked to them. They sent report cards and a few pictures. The facility is kept clean, doesn't even smell like dog. Also, another assuring thing that all us helicopter parents will appreciate is that they have cameras!!! I was so happy to see Gunther enjoy his time there! Thank you double dog dare ya!!!!

    To say I highly recommend Double Dog Dare Ya/Pet Rush Inn is an understatement! This place has been a godsend for me & my pup Bobby ever since we moved to the NoHo/Burbank area. I initially called to ask about the 2 week board-and-train program, and we met with Kevin for a consultation before discussing the program further. He recommended bringing Bobby (who was having a hard time adjusting after the move and didn't socialize with other dogs well) to day care a few times just so he could get familiar with the place and the people. Let me tell you - the day care here has been so amazing for us both. He gets to play with other dogs and burn off all his crazy amounts of energy, and he loves both facilities and all of the staff who take care of him. Even during the height of the COVID-19 restrictions on businesses in the area, the staff at Double Dog Dare Ya was able to stay open while adhering to social distance guidelines and it was such a relief to know that I could still take Bobby in. He's been going pretty much once a week since March! The facilities offer grooming and boarding services as well at great prices, so I have the peace of mind that whatever I may need for my pup I have a place that I can trust will take amazing care of him. He loves everyone there and they love him back!

    Double dog is amazing! I bring my dog here to socialize as I do work still during the pandemic. The facility is Clean and the Staff is awesome. Due to Covid the amount of dogs they get is affected but it's good enough for my little guy! Plus I get to support them as I'm sure they have been affected. I recommend to anyone who need their dog tired after a loooong day of work!

Board & Train Program

Teaching your dog basic obedience will make your household a more pleasant place for all. Our board and train program is one of the most effective ways to improve your dog’s behavioral skills. This program requires a minimum boarding of two weeks in order to ensure full reinforcement and success so each lesson sticks around with your dog throughout their lifetime. Continuous positive reinforcement is the key to your dog’s success. We even make sure to provide each pet owner with an overview of the training their dog receives in order to maintain the reinforcement they were taught through our program. Our Board and Train classes are at Double Dog Dare Ya – where each dog enjoys a comfortable and private suite, 24-hour surveillance and security, feeding, walks, and socialization.
