"An amazing team! Scott helped me so much to understand my dog better and to communicate with him better. Everyone I came to touch with was super professional and true animal lover. The facility in RAK is very unique in the country, I believe it is bigger than any other kennel and yet not crowded. And of course a huge thanks goes to Kirsty for always handling any crazy further question or request:)"
