“Let’s make sure your pups are given the best care”

My name is Kelly. I live a very active lifestyle, and enjoy being outdoors! I have 2 pups of my own, and they are spoiled rotten! They love to go hiking, kayaking, camping, swimming, on walks/jogs, and of course play fetch. I have always had a dog in my life, and live true to that they may only be a part of our lives for a while, but to them, we are their whole life. Make it worth it.
