Hi Jennifer

Thank you for choosing Citizen Canine for Olive. We take every review as an opportunity to learn and to serve our clients better. We do understand that new clients may be nervous about leaving their pet with us for the first time, and It is never our intention to rush through our guest drop-off process. We’re really glad that Olive was happy at pick-up and that it went well. We look forward to seeing you for her boarding stay! If you did not get a tour of the facility I would be happy to arrange one, or take you. Please call me 510-562-1750 . Best regards, Randi
