I cannot tell you how many times people have asked me how and why and did I get into the pet care business. I say that there was no life-shattering experience or undying love to do this since I was a little girl. Quite simply, the thought came into my mind one day in 2005 and I knew it was the right thing to do, so I did it. Sure, my family boarded our dogs for years but not in the type of fun, clean, and safe environment that we offer at Canine College! It just was not available, so we built it.
Canine College was a great decision. It has been a blast! The people I work with, the customers and of course, the dogs! What was my biggest mistake? I waited too long; I should have started this business 20 years ago!
I looked and found experienced, skilled professionals and business tools to work with. I was lucky enough to start with PetExec. I feel PetExec has been a cornerstone tool in the management of our services, data, and staff. PetExec is a professional product that has grown with us and has aided me in the growth of my company.
Our customers trust us, like us, and are welcomed by us. They feel like they are part of our family and they thoroughly enjoy coming here as much as their dogs, that’s what I wanted to build! I continue to work with the best of the best in this industry for which I attribute much of our success.
