Getting Fido dog tired

-A A +A
By Vicky Gits

Is the dog in your house telling you he’s ready to go on a three-hour hike in the mountains, but you don’t have the time or an outdoorsy nature?

Before he chews up the couch and coffee table, you could send him to Dog Care Providers of Kittredge, a small business devoted to exercising the tar out of your rambunctious canine.

One of the two owners is an experienced dog groomer and trainer who can pamper your pet and teach him some manners, too.

And while doggie day care is better than staying home alone, for animals that love open spaces, Dog Care Providers can come to the rescue.

Dave Moncrief will come to your house, drive Buster to a Jefferson County Open Space park, hike for one to three hours, depending on the dog, feed him, wipe him down and bring him back, blissfully wiped out. All for $30 for one dog once a week.
