What Nicholas would like to know about your dog

Are your babies shots up to date?
Are your babies upto date on his/ her monthly flea and tick treatment ?
Are your babies aggressive over food/ water or aggressive at all?
Your babies must have a crate, and must be crate trained.

( safety for the smallier babies)
All babies over 40 pounds will receive an extra fee, and will be kept separate from the smaller babies ( safety reasons )
Please know your babies weight.( I really do not want to turn away any clients, but for the safety of the smaller dogs and others, I will.
What word or commands do i need to know?
Please bring all your babies' bed, bowls, food, toys, blankets and etc. So your pet feels at home.
Please be mindful of these request. It's all to help your babies stay safe and so they can feel right at home.
