We welcome our guests to our 4,000 sf home on three acres in the heart of Cary.  Two tiled sunrooms, four indoor play areas and an acre fenced yard with three separate play areas create an exceptional, comfy, safe, and fun play environment.  Dogs are only in crates to sleep and finish their meals.  The rest of the time is full-on play outside when weather permits and inside to rest and relax.
