New Pet Boarding Service Now Open

Kristen and Jon Ober opened their Windy Hill Pet Care facility in March of 2017. Their love of dogs and desire for a change of pace in their lives, along with life in the country, led the Ober’s to move to Buckingham in 2015.

They built their “upscale” dog boarding facility so “we can meet new friends and help them with their boarding needs,”, said the Obers. For more information, see the ad on page 93.
