When Vanessa watches your pet

The fenced in backyard is filled with every ball or chew toy imaginable that will entertain your pet for hours. There is a child size play pool for any pup that enjoys water. There is also a park three blocks from my home that dogs will be walked to (one at a time unless from the same family).
