We thank you for your patience, as our focus is on providing our animal clients with caring service and an emphasis on safety and responsibility. Due to the amount of driving and being engaged with our clients, we are often unable to return messages immediately and may take up to 5 business days. When contacting, please include vaccination records, address, level of socializing/training your dog has attained, and referral if there is one.
Our clients understand that we provide their pets with loving attention, professional care, and reliable service. We love your pets like family, keep them safe and happy, and therefore do not accept clients who are Karens, bigots, creeps, or somewhat psychotic people who think their dogs are human children and also are somehow unaffected by their own mental health issues.
