We’re a privately-owned and operated pet care facility focused on a single mission: To be THE name in pet dog training, boarding, grooming, and doggie daycare in Southern California as a result of our honest business dealings with clients and employees, reliable and quality service with a commitment to cleanliness and order, courteous and knowledgeable staff, and a reputation for “caring deeply” about the animals in our care and the people who love them. To recognize that our commodities are boarding and training, but our products are peace of mind and successful human/pet relationships.
Every day we get to do a job we love and contribute to helping pets and their owners. From providing inspiration to dog parents who need it; helping customers learn how to change the course of their relationship with their dogs without force; educating the dog owner how to speak “dog”, – improving the relationship between dog and owner is the goal for us. It’s why we do what we do. We know that our work can change and enrich the lives of pets and their owners . We work together to create “raves” for our clients. Everyone on the team is responsible for bringing new ideas, perspectives and solutions to the table. Starting with day one, we want your voice as part of the conversation.
Pay depends on experience. We want the best and are willing to pay for it! We don’t hire to just fill a job, rather we take our time looking for the right people. If you are just looking for a job, you won’t like it here. But, if you know without a doubt that you are a fit, let’s talk.
