As a dog owner from childhood, I have always had a special gift to work with animals. I seek to meet their needs and comfort by enhancing their quality of care. I have always believed in treating each dog as a special and unique member of a family.
As a teenager, I worked in a veterinary facility for over four years. While attending NMSU, majoring in Animal Science, I began working as an Animal Control Officer. During these three years, I encountered many unwanted or uncared for pets, which led me to seek the more positive side of the animal world. Therefore, I decided to follow my entrepreneurial calling and open a mobile pet grooming company which my wife and I have operated since 2006.
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a dog in my family. However, what I find most rewarding is witnessing people who never thought they would adopt a pet become responsible owners. Perhaps because of my counseling background, I am a huge believer in the benefits of having a pet as a family member. Given proper care, they can provide immeasurable peace and unconditional love.
Our Pet Specialists are present with all our guests as they play, sleep, eat, socialize, observe, etc. It is incredibly important that we pick experienced, kind, and clever team members!
Our Receptionists are most often the first to greet you and your pet family and we truly enjoy this! That is because we get to see all the happy and excited pets as they come and go!
Our Groomers provide a one on one pampering experience to your pets. Because our clients are usually Day Campers or Boarders who have had time to settle in, they are more comfortable and trusting of the sometimes scary grooming duties.
Our Bootcamp Handlers are the kindest and most understanding "Officers" you will ever meet! These experienced members are here to provide your pet a guided experience in our Bootcamp Packages for either basic behaviors (sit, stay, etc) or more advanced tricks.

MEET THE TEAM
With over five years in planning, we have been dedicated to making Pet Planet a place where your pets will be completely taken care of as we take care of our own. Our vision of our pet hotel includes offering luxurious accommodations to your pets that focus on the quality of the service instead of the quantity of pets we service. Even though we had the choice to build a larger quantity of kennels, we opted to consider comfort and peace of mind.
Our mission is to keep your pet as comfortable and happy as possible while they are away from you. We train all our team members to remember that our client is also the pet and not just the human client.
