Rick and Jillian were great with communication. And my dog had a dogmate to romp with in a great fenced-in yard. I could tell how well she had been cared for by how she was when she got home - happy, healthy dog. Excellent care for my high energy pup
Our pups loved staying with rick and Jill and especially playing with Barley!
Our pup, Ella, has now had 2 stays with Rick and his sweet-natured dog, Barley. Ella and Barley get along beautifully and Ella is very comfortable at their home.

Would you be willing to do a meet & greet before boarding?
