It is not always easy to find a loving situation for your pet while you are away.  How about boarding in a country home setting where your pet is treated like a member of the family?  We are not a kennel or just a dog boarding facility.

Your pet can enjoy the life in the country and have trips to the beach or go hiking.

Boarding includes pick-up and drop-off so you can travel as stress-free as possible.  Your dog will be given an excellent herbal bath prior to return so that you can enjoy the soft coat and great smell of a clean and happy pet.

Some people think their pets have a better vacation than they do!

Balanced Obedience is also proud to offer long-term boarding for military clients and greatly reduced rate.

Below is a testimonial from an owner with an overweight dog.

“I could not thank Sabrina more for her care and help for my pug Lulu’s weight problem! He was terribly overweight and within 1 month, Sabrina helped him shed between 5-7 pounds! He is SO much happier, healthier and full of energy! Thank you Sabrina for giving him a second chance and pretty much helping him become a whole new dog, definitely for the better! I will from now on ONLY go to Sabrina for her care and services for my Lulu, and he certainly appreciates her work as well! Thanks so much for everything!”
