Owner/Operators Pam and Vic Barnett have brought over 25 years of experience and applied that knowledge and passion to create one of the finest dog spa’s in the south suburbs.

Our mission is to help dog owners live in true harmony with their “Best Friend”.

Our dogs can lead us on a spiritual journey. Remember they are happy just being a dog.

True harmony can only be accomplished if a dog is “balanced”.  So many pets today have behavior issues simply because of a lack of knowledge of the pet owners.  When a dog is balanced, they are more inclined to handle new experiences better and not be timid or fearful.
