It Takes a Village exhibits excellent care and has consistently exceeded my expectations. Their attention to detail and experience has been a perfect match for my high energy Springer Spaniel pup and has helped me be at ease when I can’t be with him.

It Takes a Village has made it possible for us to take day trips without Archie getting lonely. They not only let Archie out for potty breaks but, more importantly to Archie, they provide lots of hugs and snuggles. Archie loves them and so do we!

They are great with our dog and care for him like he’s part of their family. When I work from home, it’s awesome to see how absolutely excited he is. I love getting picture emails of him happy after walks. The communication and service are top notch.
