• Chris Boivin, owner of Fido’s Haven of Rochester, is a Certified Dog Trainer who has had a true passion for animals her entire life. Up until now, Chris has had an extensive work history in the customer service industry, as well as the sales and marketing fields. It was her dream to someday be able to combine her customer service experience with her love for animals. In early 2014, Chris decided to begin vigorous coursework through Animal Behavior College, which would give her a better understanding and knowledge of the canine world. She spent an entire year studying canine behavior, and then had a rewarding 6-month externship with 2 Animal Behavior College mentors.

    Chris also took 6 continuing education courses including Pet Sitting & Dog Walking, Pet Diet & Nutrition, The Art of Selling & Teaching Private Lessons, Training Shelter Dogs, Cat Management & Training, and Pet Massage Therapy.

    Chris purchased Al’s Grooming & Boarding in October 2015 and changed the name to Fido’s Haven of Rochester. Chris welcomes previous customers of Al’s, and invites them to inquire about the continued services such as the grooming salon and boarding facility, as well as new and exciting services such as group training sessions and doggie daycare. She also invites new customers to call or stop by to see the up-to-date, modern facility.

    With Chris having been in the customer-service industry her entire life, treating customers and their beloved pets with the utmost respect and dignity is her highest priority. As the owner of this privately-owned establishment, Chris looks forward to meeting each customer and their beloved companion(s) each time they visit, to provide personalization that cannot be found anywhere else.
