What makes us different is that we let the dogs play outside almost all day long with us. Each dog has one on one time with us. If a dog gets outside time at another kennel, it is on a leash only and usually only twice a day (if that). Because of this, most dogs become very anxious at other kennels.

Our vision is to do WHATEVER we need to do to make the dog HAPPY!
