My name is Julia Dixon, Mum to 2 grown children and 2 labradoodles. Having worked in the dental profession since 1974, I needed a new direction in which to pour my energy and enthusiasm. I have owned dogs all my life, worked as a veterinary assistant and cared for other people's dogs in my spare time.
How Pet Recess Began
I purchased a small house with enough land to provide for outdoor play areas and a basement for an indoor play and sleep room.
Pet Recess opened in June of 2007 and since it has grown from 2 dogs (my own) to over 75 clients averaging 35-40 dogs per day. We care for 5 lb to 150 lb dogs, Tea Cup Yorkies to French Mastiffs. With several new dogs enrolling every week, we are constantly growing and continue to enrich the lives of our dogs and their owners.
Pet Recess moved into the larger facility in August of 2010 and became a Corporation in October 2010.
