Snuggling Pets

I am located on the north side of Springfield. I have been grooming dogs for over 30 years and have owned my own boarding kennel in the past and have a full grooming salon at my home and I have worked for veterinarians throughout the years.

What Willa would like to know about your dog

So good communication and lots of questions are very helpful.
