Response from business owner

Hi Megan, Thank you so much for recommending us, and understanding the importance of us keeping a safe facility. We work very hard to ensure all the dogs in our care are taken care of as if they were our own. I spend a lot of time doing continuing education in the pet care industry to ensure we are doing the best we can for all the dogs we care for. This includes vaccine protocols, but it doesn't stop there. Our industry is constantly changing, and our job is to make sure the pet parents we work have access to the knowledge, so they can have a better relationship with their furry four-legged family member. I hope you and Lu are both doing great! Thank you for your support of the Dreamer's Foundation. We will continue to move forward and help more vets. ~ Dan

Ashe has visited several times and we’ve always been satisfied. They recognize her and call her by name when seen out in town. I feel like she gets good care while we are away

Thank you Tiffany for your kind words. We consider all the dogs that enter our facility part of our family and enjoy seeing them out in town too. We love having Ashe here with us while you are away.
