Chris is knowledgeable about how dogs communicate and helped to maintain our training with Diego. Upon pick up, I could tell Diego was treated well and had a great time! I will book with Chris and Peanut again!

When Chris watches your pet

We will do our best to make a trip to Prospect park. I have a dedicated dog playroom in my home that the pups find quite relaxing. We may do a bit of light gardening as well!
