For over 7 years, we have been serving the pets and families of our local area. We love creating a bond with the families and their pets, caring for them to the fullest extent, and creating everlasting relationships. We provide care for your fur baby as if they were our own, and ensure that they receive the highest quality care while you're away.


When you live a busy life, it is hard to consistently provide the attention and care that your pets can demand. With years of satisfied owners and loved pets, you can rely on us to receive the care your pets deserve.


We are always prepared for any pet's needs and ensure that your pet will receive the best care and love. Their happiness, health, and care is our top priority and we strive to provide a service we would want our own pets to receive.


The pets and their families we serve become lifelong family members to us as well and we strive to do our best to make you feel like family.

We offer a wide variety of service options. We are also flexible in dates and times as well as servicing areas.


Some of the services we offer are talking your favorite pup for a walk on the town, drop in visits for your scaly buds, and a wide range of training options for your favorite pooch.


Our training curriculum is also full of variety. We teach basic obedience classes, socialization, advanced obedience classes, Canine Good Citizens certifications, as well as preparing for therapy dog testing. Best of all, WE COME TO YOU

IN Loving MEMORY

Ryker

Ryker Wiggles (AKA Stink) was one of Shane and Laura's personal babies that we lost to kidney failure. This beautiful and quirky girl was definitely a Daddy's girl all the way.

Trax

Trax was another of Shane and Laura's babies that was lost in an accident. He was loving, goofy, ball of curiosity and got his name when he got stuck in the dashboard of a Chevy Trax.

RIP Little Man. 09/15/2020-10/10/2021


George

George was love by every dog, cat, and person he met. He loved to cuddle and explore and was a great daddy to his litter of kittens. We don't think we will ever meet another soul like his.

RIP Best Daddy Ever. 05/01/2021-09/15/2022


Opie

We will love and miss you forever buddy.

RIP Old Man. Sept 2009-Feb 16th, 2023


Moon

Moon was the life of the CK9A household. Didn’t matter she couldn’t hear the music, she danced to whatever was in her head. We used to joke she was the loudest deaf girl ever. Her spunky attitude is severely missed by Mommy & Daddy.
