M&J Boarding and Doggie Daycare
My Dog really seems to enjoy going to the daycare and playing with the other dogs. My wife and I love the convenient hours and the package deal that allow them to be dropped off for a couple hours once or twice a week when we know we are going to have to work late. The trainer is amazing and I would recommend her to any pet lover.

M&J Boarding and Doggie Daycare
We felt very comfortable leaving our pups at M&J's Boarding and Doggie Day Care. The place is very nice and the staff is super friendly and very professional. We were only in town for a short vacation but I wish there was a Doggie Day Care like this for our little ones back home. I would certainly recommend this place to family and friends. Our dogs loved the staff and the suite they were allowed to share and our pocket book did as well. Thanks M&J's!!
Tips & Advices
Many people fear that their pet will be injured at the groomer, but incidents of serious injury are infrequent. For minor injuries , it is appropriate the groomer pay the vet bill, and can usually be worked out between groomer and owner. For moderate to severe injuries, you can attempt to activate groomer’s liability insurance to cover medical expenses. However, be aware that most groomer contracts stipulate that the business does not assume responsibility.
Staff at groomers know that there is inherent risk when handling animals, and they are familiar with being snapped at or bitten. However, it is not a normal occurrence or something you should ignore. Many people choose to cover medical expenses or pay extra--at minimum, apologize and get the dog into behavior classes. It is a given that  you should sedate or muzzle the animal for all future grooming sessions.
It is always recommended to make an appointment to get your pet groomed. While some groomers, especially in the larger pet stores, can accommodate with short notice, popular neighborhood groomers are often booked out two weeks out or longer on weekends.
If your pet has sensitive skin, let the groomer know when you set the appointment. But be aware, all dogs have sensitive skin by human standards--their skin is much thinner. Therefore, you should be on the lookout for signs of sensitivity, and reduce it through regular grooming with gentle, natural shampoo and conditioner. Oatmeal shampoo is a favorite. Daily brushouts and omega oil supplements are recommended for every day at-home care.
For various reasons including insurance clauses and pet-owner relationship dynamics and behaviors, groomers prefer owners don’t stay with their pets while being groomed.
