What is daycare at Puppy Love? Simply put, dog daycare is a supervised environment where dogs play off-leash with other dogs. Puppy Love’s daycare facility offers separate play areas designed for different size dogs and play styles. The dogs enrolled in daycare are taken outside for recess several times a day to enjoy our fenced-in-play yard. All play areas feature a fun atmosphere, toys, beds, fresh water, and daily scheduled activities. What we offer Puppy Love offers an alternative to traditional boarding that goes beyond fulfilling your dog’s basic needs and incorporates the free-reign benefits of daycare. Dogs that join us for boarding are automatically enrolled in daycare during the day. After a day of free-reign fun, your dog will retire to their own private, size appropriate kennel for much needed rest. – New dogs must book a day of daycare before boarding ($23) In Home Pet Sitting & Dog Walking Our professional In-home pet sitting and dog walking services are a good options for pets that would not do well in a daycare environment.

BLUE STAR PEST CONTROL was founded by Mr. John Brown in April of 1984, from that time to 1996, Blue Star Pest Control secured a modest yet solid foothold in the pest control industry in St. Tammany parish. Blue Star Pest Control started doing business in Orleans and Jefferson parishes in the later years. In 1996, in light of the industries struggle with ineffective termite chemicals and the increase in lawsuits within our industry, Mr. Brown decided to sell his accounts to a major pest control company, believing it was the right thing to do for his loyal customers to stay protected. Many Blue Star customers were very upset that their accounts had been sold to another company. It was that fact and the many requests from customers that led Mr. Brown to re-open Blue Star Pest Control in 2001. Mr. Brown re-started the operation with no customer base, and began to re-build Blue Star Pest Control from scratch. Even to this day, many of our previous customers are grateful that we re-opened and are returning to have us protect their homes. In 2002, Mr. Brown had a heart attack, which slowed him down tremendously. He attempted to continue building […]

Pediatric Dentist- Babies to Teens! Metairie and Slidell Our office, as well as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that your child visit the dentist by his/her 1st birthday. You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and their staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less “to-do” concerning the visit, the better. It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle”, “shot”, “pull”, “drill” or “hurt”. The office makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child. We invite you to stay with your child during the initial examination. During future appointments, we suggest you allow your child to accompany our staff through the dental experience. We can usually establish a closer rapport with your child when you are not present. Our purpose is to gain your child’s confidence and overcome apprehension. However, if you choose, you may come with your child to the treatment room. For the safety and privacy of all patients, other children who […]

Any clients I gain other than students in my classes, almost entirely comes from Kids & Family! You really get those books out there. Thank you so much for everything through the years. Here is to many more. – Connie- Tumblebus
Got good response from Summer camps due to your publication! Thanks!– Barry-Reptile Krewe
Very exciting news about the app! I can’t wait to check it out. Thank you for all the wonderful work you do!– Emily-Bibbidy Bobbidy Bash
It has been my joy and pleasure to work with Kids and Family and especially Toni throughout the years. From the time it was the “Kids Directory” to now Toni has been nothing but patient, giving, understanding and supportive of my needs as both a human being and a business owner. The directory itself has always returned dividends to us in the form of business. And then there is the lagniappe of extra opportunities that Toni provides during the year that extend our reach into the community. All in all, a value that can’t be beat! Kaye Harris, Owner, Pony Tales
Since my very first ad I have been satisfied with my ad in Kids & Family New Orleans! I still have people that pick up the magazine and call to book an appointment while sitting in the doctor’s office. People come to my shop just to get their copies too. Mrs. Toni has always been very helpful and supportive. I am a customer for life! – Katy Medina, Owner: Children’s Hair Palace
I have been a customer of Kids & Family New Orleans ever since I owned Kid to Kid. I find it to be the most effective, reliable, and affordable form of advertising. The service and support is excellent. I would recommend Kids & Family. Ann Dyer, Kid to Kid Owner
I find it very reliable, dependable, and even more advantageous than Yellow P! (In fact, I even was able to cancel Yellow P!) Been a customer for almost the whole 20 years! Am always happy to “go the extra mile” for KD and its public events. The magazine, the all-encompassing “infomercial” for Children’s entities, covers a lot of ground. Geography-wise ….and material-wise. So very glad to “be a part!’– Uncle Wayne- Porta Puppet Players
I use it for kid-friendly services as well as for ideas for “field trips” with my children. I also find ideas for birthday parties and other activities for my children – and for myself. Jennifer J.
This publication is so very helpful for me and my little one! Weekends are the only time we have to spend together and this manual is our savior. It’s free to pick up at the doctor’s office or shops on Magazine St. We also save on coupons and find out about all the little secret spots and places that others don’t have a clue about! We were also featured in an issue through Healthy Start New Orleans! Amazing Issues and great help. This book is perfect. Like a little kids manual! Ashley L.
I always look through your magazine for activities for my daughter and for what to do on the weekend and on our off days. The most recent being Boo Koo Bounce in Elmwood – boy did we have a blast.
I love your magazine and all of the places it informs me of that my daughter and I can take part in. Tia L.
I can’t describe how helpful New Orleans Kids & Family has been. I have a son born in October which means it is usually cold, so I tried to find an indoor place (besides my home) that I could have his 2nd birthday party. I found Gymrompers! The party was a hit and everyone loved it! If it was not for your publication I would have never found that place. Your publication gives me great ideas every year. I have 3 children so I am planning often. Thanks! Onikah C.
Use your publication for party ideas, cakes, and summer activities for my son. It’s avaluable and informative resource that really fills a void for children’s activities. I tell everyone I know about it. Casey L.
Since my pregnancy I used it a lot to find doctors, 4d ultrasound places and after that I have been using it to find children’s clothing stores, photography and much more. Almost every advertisement in the magazine is helpful for me and actually I always use it online because is more convenient. I think it is a very interesting magazine especially the kid’s activities the magazine advertises are awesome. I hope you are always around to keep helping parents like me. Daniella O.
The book helps me plan for birthday parties and fieldtrips for my school and myself. I love this book!!!!!!!!! Thanks a lot. Kristie W.
