Daycare Associate

Squishy is also Jennifer's dog.  She is full of energy and ready to play with any daycare dog that comes in!   She is a pretty vocal little girl, letting everyone know when someone walks in the door or by making lots of noises while playing.  She is the current tug-o-war champ, and welcomes any challengers.


Greeter/Daycare Associate

Misty is Jennifer's dog.  She can mostly be found laying on her mommy's desk ready to greet (and get attention from) the next person that walks in the door.  She can also be found playing with the daycare dogs during the day.

Daycare Associate

Moose is Cindy's dog and has been coming to Canine & Abel most of his life.  He is well adapted to other dogs and loves playtime and napping!  His specialty is letting us know when someone walks in the door and keeping the other dogs in line (he doesn't realize he is a little dog!).

Jennifer Abel
