Small Dog Boarding

Are you going away for a trip and don't want to worry about having your little love be alone? We can board your pet and keep him safe. He can receive cuddles, pets, mental enrichment, fed, and cared for.

Small Dog Training

Is your pet rambunctious? Would you rather that they were able to behave himself? We can help you there. We will teach him the right behaviors so that he will be your little angel when he has finished training. We will also tell you what you need to do to keep up the good results at home.

Small Dog Grooming

Do you want your pet to look like a million dollars? We can provide pet grooming services to help your pet get there.  You will love the results and will want to show off your dog afterward. 

Small Dog Daycare

Are you working long days and don't have anyone at home who can watch your dog? Rather than risk having him possibly tear up the place, you can bring them to our daycare, where he will be able to socialize with other dogs and have the day zoom right on by. Then he will be so glad to see you when you pick him up from work and be ready to spend time with you.

Small Dog Spa

Your pet will be relaxed and happy throughout their entire time with us. Our goal is to make your pet look and feel great. Our caring staff will make that happen.
