I have known Pete for 39 years. He has a very unique presence and instantly forms a special bond with all people and animals. Our animals are always happy to see him when he visits. His pets are well cared for and live beyond their expected years. I would not hesitate to let Pete care for my animals or my children. Any one who knows Pete knows he is an extremely warm and caring person.

Pete is a dog whisperer!! I would trust him with my pets ANY day. Their property is perfect for dogs to run around, its very safe and fenced in and there is a ton of space! They have pets of their own (dogs/horses) that are all VERY friendly and well mannered. I've left my high energy pup with them several times and they always make sure he has a great time and sleeps very well when he gets home! In fact, when it is time to leave, he usually runs away because he wants to stay and hang out with his "friends." We've tried leaving him in the kennel overnight and when we pick him up you can tell he's been stressed out because his nose is visibly sore from rubbing against the kennel, this is DEFINITELY not the case with Pete, when I come to pick up my dog he is usually running around and having a ball! I prefer this over putting him in a kennel - it's great to be able to go away knowing that your pet is in good hands with someone who really does care and that he isn't locked up in a crate all day.

JJ loved staying with Pete and Marti and their canine crew. They sent pictures of JJ resting happily outside in the grass in the fenced yard, as well as of him and the other dogs playing inside their cozy home throughout his stay there. She also mentioned she grooms dogs, and for half the price of other big chain grooming salons she did a better job than they or any other groomer has ever done. Especially his paws and nails(!), where his fur tends to get so long since other groomers don't usually do as good of a job. I'd feel happy and at ease leaving JJ there again and know he'll be in great hands. Thank you!
