Our caring, professional staff are all certified in CPR for pets. They also undergo a rigorous in-house training program to be able to recognize dog behavior and to care for your dog in the best way possible. Each staff member will get to know your whole dog inside and out by learning the information you share with us regarding your dog as well as closely observing behavior on our playground.
Has loved and worked with dogs her whole life. She lives with several companion dogs. Over the years she has rescued dogs that had such extreme fear agression that several trainers told her they should be euthanized. Julie disagreed and went on to learn about training this type of dog agression in depth; those dogs became happy, healthy members of society. She has also rescued dogs with various health problems and was able to help them overcome issues by working with holistic vets. She reads voraciously about dog nutrition and health and attends several holistic pet seminars and lectures a year.
