In-home Boarding on a smaller, more personal scale than most show "kennels". The grooming room is nearly all windows and attached to my living room via french doors. The outdoor kennel runs are a minimum of 6X12, cement footing, and either covered or shaded as weather dictates. The outdoor Toy runs feature heat lamps in the winter, absolute security year round. 3+ acres of grass and woods are fenced for free excersizing.
Expert Conditioning for optimum weight, muscle, hair, and mental status. The dogs are exercised a minimum of 4 times a day for time periods varying with the weather from 20 mins to 2 hours. Running free in the "Big Yards" (half acre yards, grass and trees) 1-3 times a day depending on each individual dog's needs.
Natural Presentation. Enough said?
Trimming is my form of artistic expression. I am, and always will be, a perfectionist when it comes to trimming.
Quiet country setting complete with horses and perimeter fencing and gated drive. We are two miles from the nearest highway, five miles from town, and an hour and a half from the nearest airport (Minneapolis/St.Paul Int'l).
