  • Karen B., Dec 30, 2023

    Our first visit to The Pond and our lab was super happy. Kathy was very helpful and explained how to secure the gate and helpful tips for our visit. The property fence is very secure, and we felt comfortable with all the safety features at her space. Our dog swam in the pond even on this cold day!

  • Alyssa H., Dec 28, 2023

    So fun! So much room to run around! Love all of the amenities! First time and definitely will be back to play!
