    We went away for a long weekend and left Bongo in the care of Heather and I believe we got the whole family which was fantastic, some to find out Bongo seems to have a mild case (actually severe case) of separation anxiety.  The Pickens family pitched to help make Bongo comfortable by spending more time with him, longer walks, etc... She (and her family) were great and would highly recommend Heather.

    Just wanted to say thanks to Heather @Pickens Pet Services for a wonderful job with our Luna.  Luna is a little skiddish, but within a couple of minutes she opened up to her. She trimmed her nails perfectly, and offers many other services.  We wouldn't hesitate to call her again with anything else we might need.
