Al was wonderful with our two dogs and they came home happy and tired. Not only did he take great care of our girls, he was also very understanding when our flight was delayed and we could not make our scheduled pickup. We will definitely bring our girls back next time we are out of town. Thank you!

Have lost track of how many times we've taken Bonnie, our GSP, to Al's. Can't go anywhere unless he's available! Thanks, Al!

I was very comfortable leaving my energetic golden retriever with Al. I picked up an exhausted and happy dog after a week away. Normally there is evidence of separation anxiety, but not so with Al. He will be my go-to going forward!

I have lived in the area most of my 50+ years. I graduated San Carlos High School in 1980. I moved to Canada around 2000, returning 2013 with my Collie cross Bella. My main passion in life is Bella.

When Al watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Our yard is large enough that walks are not necessary, but I am happy to walk your leash trained dog if you like - I can leash train him/her, if needed. When I walk my dog Bella, we stay in the immediate area. The neighborhood is quiet, and there is a K-8 school up the street with some nice walking paths.
