    Care is first rate. Dogs receive lots of love all day. My Maltipoo races to get inside!

    I bring my dogs to be groomed. I have a GSD, a Rottie, and a Pitt Bull and they do a wonderful job with them. I need to be able to trust that my dogs will be handled properly with confident professional care and everyone here seems very qualified to provide that care. I can relax. My Pack can relax and they love the attention.

    I adopted both of my dogs from here and it was a great experience. They even went out of their way to make it possible for us to adopt when the closing date on my house was pushed and pushed. It's a great organization with a lot of love ❤

    We have had two dogs at Canine Kindergarten in Verplank several times a week and they howled with joy when the time came to go there. It is highly professional, safe and fun for the dogs. Even the boarding is free range. The owners are advocates for all dogs everywhere and I most highly and enthusiastically recommend the organization..

i have always had large packs of dogs so it made sense to incorporate clients dogs into a pack setting.  It’s very natural and the benefits to the dogs is wonderful.

we do a Sunday Sneakers and Paws Club where each Sunday at 10am volunteers come and walk our rescue dogs in a pack walk on a 3 mile hike. 

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Ask about a sprinkler system to prevent fire for safety.  Ask how employees were trained.  Who trained them and how? Our employees are trained by an obedience trainer and have to be tested in several ways before they can become a dog handler.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

being able to watch live webcams will be enough to trust what’s going on in your pets daily routine.
