Our staff follows a specific checklist which includes checking external gates and doors, supervising outdoor playtime, not interacting with other dogs or people during walks, and having access to clean fresh water at each visit.
Finally, we understand each pet is different and will allow your pet to decide what level of interaction they prefer with each staff member.
