Jon and I (Margaret) have been local residents for more than 25 years. In September of 2004, we adopted a cute little puppy from a rescue organization and named him Charley. Charley was a very sweet little guy with tons of energy. No matter how many walks we took him on and how much we played with him, he still had more energy!
I did a search on the internet and found out about Arbor Dog Daycare and started taking Charley there. Charley just loved going to daycare and we loved that he came home happy and tired. In late 2005 while I was between jobs I took a position at Arbor Dog Daycare. I just loved working with all of the dogs and realized that this was what I was meant to do. It was then that I decided that I wanted my own dog daycare. As luck would have it the owner wanted to sell so Jon and I bought it in the Fall of 2006.
Since we have owned Arbor Dog Daycare, we have taken a great dog daycare, and with the input of our clients, a lot of research and a great deal of benchmarking, made it even better! We have also moved to a much bigger and better location, extended our hours, and added Boarding, Training and Bathing services.
I have found a true calling in ensuring the care and well-being of dogs throughout the Ann Arbor Area. We are regular supporters of the Huron Valley Humane Society, whom Jon first became involved with more than 15 years ago. We actively support the Canine Social Club, whose most recent efforts culminated in the opening of the first official Dog Park in Ann Arbor (which finally came to fruition in the Summer of 2007). We have also fostered several rescued dogs for a local dog rescue (The Buster Foundation) and adopted another rescued puppy named Sunny.
We love dogs and want to do all that we can to give them the best possible care.
