"I have been taking my dog here for over 10 years.. boarding as well as grooming and I can say its the best experience I have had.  I don't have to worry about my dogs care or knowledgeable.  I have had plenty of experience with dogs but was having trouble with our new puppy.  I worked 2 times with Mike and no more trouble.  We look forward to another 16 years with Hal Wheelers care of our new dog."  J Hubert
