Customer Reviews

He's been doing the belly rub thing lately hah! I think his character is coming out a lil more now that he has a consistent home. Thanks for the details love them! So happy he had good manners.

Karen H.

Thanks! Sorry about the harness. He'll have a better one for next week's walks! He does like to bite the harness to play so that's not too surprising :) thanks for the pictures, too!

Karen H.

Great first walk! I love all the feedback and that was a really cute photo. I feel so much better about leaving her while I am at work now! Thanks for taking such good care of her!

Amy W.

Hahahah!!! Yes he's such a dork he must put his entire face in the water to get the ice cube out. No worries at all - we learned this the hard way, too. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks Jenna! I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but Sonny does not like to go near the Dunkin Donuts. He got attacked by a bird there like a year ago
