“We use Pack Leader Boarding when going away and they make it so easy. They are flexible with pick up and drop off times and we know that when Monty is there his training is being reinforced and he’s getting so much attention. He comes home exhausted. Thank you to Steve and the Pack Leader Team!”
— Ali F. & Monty

“My puppy has boarded with Steve on a number of occasions and not only do I get awesome photos of her having a great time which takes away the worry while I am away, I return home to a calm, well behaved, balanced little puppy.”
