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 once or twice a day for about 20 minutes (if that). Our extended play times morning and afternoon allow for your dog(s) to burn up that pent-up energy.

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

Breakfast at 7:00 a.m. Dinner at 4:00 p.m.
