Michele

Owner

I have passion for all animals! I discovered this passion as soon as I could start walking. I would chase any dog down to give tons of hugs and kisses. I knew my life would not be complete unless I started being around dogs as much as possible. Originally I wanted to own a child daycare center but after owning a fitness business for children, I moved on to my next passion in life. The thought came to mind to open a dog daycare. I honestly thought it was a silly idea considering this idea came me in 2006 (before daycare for dogs was a “thing”) but then I started researching it and found out in fact, this is a great business idea!! It took me many years of fighting the township to start my business but then I finally opened my doors in 2011 and live my dream every single day.
 
We do our best to always give back to the community and to foster dogs in need. We have saved over 40 dogs from shelters and found them amazing homes. It’s something my employees and I take great pride in. Our customers become our family. It truly is such a gift from God to be around such sweet animals all day long.
 
I am an Accredited Pet Sitter and am CPR certified. I am a member of ASPCA, Humane Society, and Pet Sitters International. I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies! I guarantee you will be satisfied with our services.

Peanut RIP 9/2016

Part Owner

Spoiled, Spoiled, Spoiled! He is the alpha believe it or not and keeps his two Rottweiler brothers in their place! And you better believe they listen when he gives a command! Peanut is loved by everyone. The extra special attention he gives to his human friends makes them love him like they would their own child. He loves bath time, ears cleaned, nails clipped… in other words, he LOVES to be pampered. He will greet you by bowing his little head and he will expect the same in return to give you a gentle “head hug”. He loves to be held and would allow anyone to take him home. I check purses and bags to make sure Peanut isn’t in there upon friend’s departures.

R.I.P. Juggy Boy 9/14

Part Owner

Juggy was adopted from the East Brunswick Kennel. When he joined the family he misbehaved every chance he got. It took much love and effort but now Juggy is a healthy balanced boy. He loves his two brothers and is very loyal. Juggy is a great watch dog. He inspects every noise he hears around the house. He turned out to be such a loving, sweet best friend! I would suggest adoption before you go out and buy a pet. Juggy has been such a blessing and he is very healthy. He might not be alive right now if I didn’t take him, please do the same and save a dog’s life. The dog will certainly appreciate it and show you how much he does every second he gets a chance!

Kyus

Part Owner

Kyus is the baby of the family even though he is the biggest. I call him the “Gentle Giant”. He loves playing with his brothers and just LOVES to talk! You can find Kyus relaxing on the couch watching t.v. with his Chihuahua brother tucked in close to him, or playing outside in the yard. He enjoys car rides and loves to visit with friends. He hasn’t met an animal or human he hasn’t loved!
