Frankie had the Best time on his first day of doggie day care with Russ!! I couldn't be more pleased with the care he received there. So glad I was able to find the perfect place for my puppy. A huge shout out of THANKS to Russ and his family for their love and dedication to the animals they take care of and their humans!!!

What Russ would like to know about your dog

Dogs must have ALL shots and Bordetella (Kennel Cough) vacine before arrival. I can administer if needed. No biters please. Pit bulls must have good history and a meet and greet is REQUIRED. I need to know what scares your dog. Cars, loud bangs, children, men, what have you noticed? Bring shot records with you. Puppies pre shots or unfinished vaccines are okay.

Safe dog parks are on the list to visit. I'll bring the toys or you can send one with me. My son will often come along with another dog. All dogs play in a large fenced area with trees, grass and dirt. Perfect for all k9 activety.
