Meet Our Team:

DSC_0201
     Our journey to providing daycare and boarding services for dogs, started with our family, friends and neighbors leaving their dogs with us when they would travel.  We were able to see how much dogs enjoyed our huge fenced in yard and comfortable renovated barn space.   To raise our 7 children, it has taken a village, so we copied that and applied it to dogs.  It takes a village for some dogs to thrive in life.  We want to be part of your village.  A second family to come alongside in times of need.  Whether it be the need for daycare while you work, training needs, grooming needs, or care when you're traveling, we're here to help.  We want to establish a long term relationship with you and your doggies, so that anytime your away, they have a place to go where they feel comfortable and are well known. We care for every dog like they are our own.
