Heidi N Frank-Owner

I have always known that animals were my passion. After high school graduation, I immediately entered mount Ida College, Newton, Ma Canine Sciences program in 1991.

Having double majored in Behavior and Grooming, I learned the great intricate details of our canine counterparts. They are complex, brilliant and incredibility wonderful creatures to whom I have the pleasure of helping become better in some facet of their lives. Knowing what truly social animals dogs genetically are, we embrace socialization within our services. Doggone Fit LLC offers a great variety of services focusing on socialization and training. We have truly found our niche and I am now honored to be both a handler and mentor to our dedicated staff. My strong work ethics and values have built a solid foundation of a team full of compassionate, well educated and highly reliable staff. We look forward to providing you with exceptional services for your canine and helping them live their best life.
