We don't call it

'Pet Boarding'

You have a Problem:

The Solution:

Dogs and owners love us (lots of them).

We create an environment to keep all dogs happy and safe.

Every pet is like our own as you can see in the pictures below.

You want your dog to be safe and happy

and not cooped up while you are away.

A half-acre of play area with a Dog Loving Family!!

Your baby will never be kept in a small pen for hours.

We specialize in working with timid, shy, previously abused, or scared dogs.

We have helped re-home several and saved many more.

We will not work with aggressive pets.

If your dog is aggressive we can give you some guidelines to help.

About Us

We Love Dogs!!

We have owned many dogs and spent a lot of time learning about dog behavior.

Our entire team has been through extensive dog training.

We currently have two cocker spaniels, 'our boys,' that we use as our barometer with other dogs.

Of the hundreds of dogs we have cared for, our boys get along with all of them.

Our families currently own 11 dogs. One son abandoned us and owns a cat, true forgiveness is pending.

There are five of us that are involved to a greater or lesser extent with the business. All are well-trained and love dogs.

Some of the dogs we have owned:

English Springer Spaniel, Blue Healer, Samoyed, Vizla-Lab mix, Border Collie – Husky mix, Scottie, Samoyed – Malmute mix, Lhasa-Apso, Cocker Spaniels (3), Cockapoo, King Charles Cavalier, German Shorthair, Mountain Cur, Bug (Boston Terrier-Pug), Boston Terrier, French Bulldog, Pug, Shih Tzu, and our all-time favorite, our 105 lb golden-cream Golden Retriever, Nala. Yeah, we know, that is a lot of dogs.

Cathy spends way too much time looking at websites and shelters looking at other dogs. She and Sammy donate time to take shelter animals for a ‘break.’ They pick them up at the local shelter, drive them around, give them treats, take them for walks… It is healing for the dogs and for them.

We are constantly finding better ways to entertain, train, and be mentors for dogs and owners.

We love any feedback you have to help us improve.
