Mission: To provide owners and their pets with a specialized pet care service that values personalized, holistic care and is as natural and as enriching to each individual pet’s life as possible.
Operating with a unique pet care approach, Pup ‘N Pals was founded on the idea that pet owners and their pets could benefit from an alternative to traditional pet care options. Many pets (and their owners) find large establishments to be too stressful or even overwhelming, so we set out to create a pet care program that was not only enjoyable for pets, but also much more natural. The end result: Pup ‘N Pals, which now provides specialized dog hiking/running services as well as small animal boarding out of our home in Bedford, New Hampshire. We strongly believe that pets should live as close to how Mother Nature intended, so we have designed a holistic pet care program that places the well-being of each pet first. Exceptional care, a stress-free, safe environment and a heavy emphasis on exercise (specifically, outdoor exercise for dogs) are part of what makes Pup ‘N Pals so unique.
Owner Kassia Russell is fully-insured, licensed with the state of New Hampshire and town of Bedford and has extensive experience in animal care. She graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a bachelor's degree in animal science and she has been passionate about pets for as long as she can remember. She currently owns two rabbits and a horse, but through her previous work and volunteer experience, Kassia has had the opportunity to care for all types of animals, including dogs, small pets and even farm animals.
It has always been a lifelong dream of Kassia's to work alongside pets every day and Pup 'N Pals has allowed her to do just that. She is committed to pet safety and animal enrichment and is constantly furthering her knowledge on natural animal care. Kassia is also a member of the Dog Gurus Community, an association that has helped her to create a safe and fun program for dogs and small pets alike.
We hope you choose Pup 'N Pals for your next pet care need and we look forward to meeting you and your pets!
