We have a small staff that will get to know your dogs intimately, and care for them like they are our own!

Plenty of Play

for your little one

We play more than any of our competitors! Your pup will enjoy 4 play sessions per day on natural grass and fresh air. Compatible dogs will be able to play together, creating a wonderful "camp" experience they are sure to love!

Quality Grooming


At the end of your pup's stay, why not get him in top shape with a bath, nail trim, or ear cleaning? 

We offer a full range of professional grooming services so your dog can prance out smelling fresh!

     Highly Recommended!    

We have been using Mandarin Pet Care for 6 or 7 years after a neighbor highly recommended them. We have been very satisfied with the care and facilities that Marilyn provides. The rates are very reasonable and the attention to detail she provides for our pets is outstanding.

Thanks for what you do MPC!!
