The Leaders of Our Pack

Dogs Abound was founded to help our clients–both human and canine–lead better lives through our services and knowledge. 

Our goal is to provide extraordinary canine care. We habitually go above and beyond to ensure the health, well-being and safety of ALL clients who cross our threshold.

By giving dogs exercise, structure, socialization and enrichment, they each become better “canine citizens.” Dogs Abound dogs show not only their own families, but the community at large, what well-behaved dogs are capable of!

Dogs Abound is owned and operated by Lu Ann Marino and Elizabeth Randall.

They have built an environment that benefits not just the dogs, but ultimately their people as well.
