"I believe all dogs can benefit from some sort of training. We send our children to kindergarten, elementary school, high school and then college; why not send our four legged kids to school too?"
In October of 2009 when Daycare was added to our list of services, Lisa's husband Chris Broecker joined the staff as 'Chief Dog Wrangler Extraordinaire', running the daycare division.
