Customer Reviews

It was really great. The dogs were so lovable and friendly. Marla was extremely knowledgeable and is very passionate about her wonderful dogs. She shares her knowledge professionally, and with the desire to teach accurately. I would have given 5 stars if the fact that the compound was all natural was on the website. Make sure you do not wear chemical bug repellant (deet) or Sun screen. The dogs love to lick, and the chemicals are not good for the dogs. Our family had a wonderful time, the scenery was beautiful.
