Took our Australian Shepherd for the day. Everyone there was extremely friendly and helpful and when we picked her up after about 5 hours, she had obviously had a lot of fun and been very active.

My Suga loves this place. They are so professional and loving. She's so exhausted when she gets home from playing and eating ice cream and they bathe her.
