Having a repro specialist like Animal Clinic is invaluable and gives a breeder resources—I've had many finished Champions and continue to develop my 10 generation line with over 200 AKC titles. Having instant access to any dog I store has allowed me to breed to progeny in a way that suits my breeding style.

Since 2003 ACN has maintained my vote for the best pet care in the tristate area. From routine wellness to highly specialized medicine, they’re a super responsive team for everything. I take great comfort in knowing they’re open 24 hours a day in case of emergency and genuinely care about the wellbeing of my four-legged family.
