By following a few simple steps, you can help keep your pets safe and comfortable all summer long.

Lilly our Lab pup has been coming here since she was 4 mos and loves it. She liked it so much when I first dropped her off that I had to ply her with treats just so she would leave.
She loves coming here for daycare which has made it an easy transition for boarding. She loves all the staff and her new BFF's. I have found the CK Team to be caring, knowledgeable and professional. They always provide an update when I pick her up. Bottom Line: Strong Recommend.
