About us

who we are...

our history

This is where it all started... Pet Set initially started as an in-home pet sitting business, providing quality care for ones dogs and cats. Since day one Pet Set committed itself to bestow the best care for their customers. Loving these pets as their own, doing for them as their owners would; administering medication when needed and/or taking them to the local dog parks. Soon after, the idea of opening a facility would start.
February of 2003, Jose, owner of Pet Set, was able to open the doors to an in-facility doggie daycare and boarding offering an indoor/outdoor play area for its guests, the first within the city of Long Beach. This facility was to cater the same kind of love, quality, and care as in-home once did.
Pet Set received the opportunity to expand its services, and was now able to offer grooming for its customers. Pets that stayed for just the day or overnight were now able to go home smelling fresh, clean, and even with a new fur-do if needed.
In late 2009 Pet Set made another expansion and welcomed in dog training. Now customers had the opportunity to successfully concur those difficult behaviors their dogs had, the behavior corrections that once failed with others...
By mid 2011 Pet Set was successfully able to go through a major remodeling of its rooms and play area. Adding more rooms for the pups, the cats with their own enclosed patio area, splash pads out in the doggie playgrounds, and an area now catered to pups who prefer to be on their alone time.

our team

Kristi: Dog Trainer

Kristi joined our staff in December 2009; she started her love for dogs at a very young age. Growing up she was the kid that wouldn’t get in trouble for causing ruckus, but the child that would be scolded for paying more attention to the dogs in her surroundings than the subject at hand. Kristi’s journey to become a trainer started back in 2002 and since then has been providing families and their dogs with the tools they need to have peace and harmony within their homes.
