I have the best things to say about Frances and Mycal. I met them as they were walking dogs one day and they mentioned they watch small dogs for a reasonable fee. They gave me their number and I eventually called when I needed care for my old Jack Russell, Jasper. They said they would like to see if they were a good fit for each other before agreeing to watch him, so he spent two hours at their home and I was so excited to hear they were compatible. Frances and Mycal provided luxury care for Jasper and sent me updates and the sweetest pictures. They also gave me helpful tips and I often refer to them as dog whisperers. Jasper always came home clean, well fed, well hydrated and so happy. I never had to worry while he was in their care because I trust them 100% and would highly recommend their services. Jasper recently passed away but I still hold Frances and Mycal very close to my heart and I will be forever grateful for the love and care they gave my precious dog. They definitely made both of our lives better.”  -Jen Wilson

There is no one we trust more to care for our two little rescue chihuahuas than Frances and Mycal. They have cared for our girls for nearly a decade, including during many three to four week trips when we were out of the country. We’ve been very fortunate to be able to go away knowing that they are in their very capable hands. To me, that says it all. One of our dogs weighs five pounds, is very fearful, and doesn’t take well to strangers. However, when our car pulls up to Frances and Mycal’s house, both dogs are bursting with excitement to see them. I consider them expert and experienced dog handlers, and I know my two girls feel that they are part of the family.” -Gene and Maida Mechanic

“From the start we have appreciated the innovative approach to dog training and care that Blue Mountain Canine provides. During the intake interview they asked mindful questions about our little terrier-mix, including which traits we really love about our dog, and which behaviors we would like to help improve. It was judgment-free, and they helped us understand how we can work with our dogs’ behaviors and communicate with her for a more harmonious home. Cricket’s demeanor has changed dramatically since working with Frances and Mycal, including her ability to socialize with dogs and people. We couldn’t be happier!” -Sarah and Ritchie Gardner

I live in Newberg and our dog Piper stayed with Frances and Mycal several times. We were so sad when they moved to Pendleton! Piper is a nervous, older dog. She was very comfortable with Frances & Mycal! I know Piper was cared for in a quiet and relaxing home setting, got several walks a day, and given all the love and attention she needed. Frances stayed in touch with updates when we were away, so I was always able to enjoy our trips! I particularly appreciated the structure Frances provided. This is very important for dogs, especially when away from home. I highly recommend Blue Mountain Canine for your pet care!” -Jan Guthrie

If ever there were two people, who could love our doodle, Duke…it is Mycal and Frances. They are so full of knowledge, patience and love for him. Duke is always happy to see them every Thursday, not to mention, it is such a relief knowing he is left in the most wonderful and caring home when we need some help!” -Adrienne Fairbanks

Frances is a wonderful dog trainer. She has helped us with our Border Collie, Lexi, since she was a puppy. Her method has been to teach us how to properly train our dog. She also has given written action plans for us to follow as well. We highly recommend Frances and Lexi loves her too. She waits at the door ready for her scheduled walks with Frances and Mycal. They help to keep her well exercised with regularly scheduled walks. It helps us as well.” -Lisa and Doug Neuman

Frances and Mycal are truly dog whisperers! Caring and knowledgeable, they build a special bond with all the doggies they take of.
