We officially opened our facility doors on Saturday, February 13th with our Grand Opening Celebration. Many breeds, sizes and personalities were on hand -- everyone (canine and human) had a blast!

The facility has agility equipment - weave poles, jumps, tunnels, balance beams, ball pit, etc. for your pooch(es) to play with.

We also offer daily Public Dog Park play sessions (this is like your traditional outdoor dog park); but we inspect vaccine records and do temperament testing on all dogs (unlike your traditional dog park). SAFE PLAY = FUN PLAY!

We also offer Grooming/Spa and Pet Boarding services. 

Come and check us out.

Spring and summer time are here. It’s time for beaches, picnics, amusement parks, dog parks, BBQs and hanging out in the backyard. But this time also brings out pesky little insects – Fleas!

Fleas are small leaping insects that feed on the blood of humans, dogs, cats and other animals. Fleas thrive in warm, wet weather when temperatures are 60 degrees or warmer. Because homes are typically climate-controlled, fleas can easily breed. Fleas are annoying creatures that can spread disease and cause tapeworms. The flea goes through four stages in their life cycle: eggs, larva, pupa, and adult. An adult flea can lay up to 50 eggs a day, produce 1,000 eggs in a lifetime and live on a dog for more than 100 days.

So the ultimate goal is not to have fleas at all; but if that goal is out the window, then the next goal is to stop fleas from becoming adults (which can spawn). Preventative measures include good housekeeping; meaning, regular vacuuming and cleaning/washing pet bedding. The application of topical flea treatment to your pet may be done year round, not just in the spring/summer months. To treat the outside area, use an insect growth regulator “IGR” (these are typically safe for humans and pets, but read the product labels). Follow the IGR product instructions, but the typical mixture is 1oz of IGR to 1 gallon of water. Spray the IGR mixture in the yard (especially in heavy vegetated areas) and inside anywhere the pet frequents. Repeat this preventative and treatment process three (3) times a year starting the first week in April.

Unfortunately no matter how vigilant you are, there may be times that those pesky little insects make it onto your pet. Now what? It’s important to remove them from your pet. There are two avenues – commercial products and homemade flea shampoo/dip. You can make your own homemade flea shampoo/dip and you probably already have the simple ingredients on hand. Mix a half a cup of vinegar and half a cup of Dawn liquid dish soap together and use as a shampoo (let sit on animal a bit) or fill a basin with lukewarm water add the solution and let your pet soak. You can then comb on the fleas out.

Which animal would stand on its hind legs and 'box' to invite another animal to play?


AKC Meet the Breeds®

The well-conditioned middleweight athlete of dogdom, the Boxer is a powerful dog with an intelligent and alert expression. While they are instinctive guardians, the Boxer loves to be with his people. This personality has allowed them to succeed as couriers during war time and as seeing-eye dogs for the blind. Appearing in both fawn and brindle colors, the Boxer currently ranks as one of the most popular dogs in the United States according to AKC® Registration Statistics.

A Look Back

Developed in Germany in the 19th century, Boxers were originally used for dog fighting and to run down and hold large game such as wild boar and bison until the hunter could arrive. The breed is known for standing up on its hind legs and batting at its opponent, appearing to box with its front paws. Imported to America after World War I, they began to grow in popularity in the late 1930's.

Right Breed for You?

One of the breed's most notable characteristics is its desire for human affection, especially from children. They are patient and spirited with children, but also protective, making them a popular choice for families. The Boxer requires little grooming, but needs daily exercise.

If you are considering purchasing a Boxer puppy, learn more here.

  • Working Group; AKC recognized in 1904.
  • Ranging in size from 21 ½ inches to 25 inches tall at the shoulder.
  • Large game hunter, guard and companion dog.
