PHILOSOPHY - Dogs are pack animals and need to be with others dogs. By being with others dogs they learn appropriate ways to play, and to socialize and interact with other dogs with different personalities. Exercise also helps to prevent boredom and negative behaviors associated with it. These behaviors can include barking, digging, chewing furniture, herding other pets in the household or even children, and aggression. 
MISSION - We all want happy, healthy, well behaved dogs. To accomplish this goal, dogs need exercise, discipline, socialization and lots of love. THE BEADED BASSET offers your dog a fun, safe haven to stay and play with a qualified caregiver to love and spoil them. Your pet will be treated like a precious member of Kathy’s family. Every pet who stays at THE BEADED BASSETT will receive royal treatment during their stay.
