-- Other Things to Note
We have a Boston Terrier, who does not go to the studio. He is too busy guarding the couch in our living room. He does not bark. As pet owners and frequent travelers, we have constantly struggled to find accommodations for our dog. Consequently, we consider pets on case-by-case basis for an additional charge, please inquire.
We live in the home and you will most likely hear us at times when we are getting ready in the morning to go to work and at night when we are home watching TV, cooking etc.
Our home has surveillance cameras installed on the front and back entrances, so be sure to smile for the camera.
