Mike moved to Santa Clarita in 1978 and Ligaya in 1984. After meeting in 1987, they moved out of the area for a bit. When it came time to have kids, there was only one place to be, Santa Clarita. Garrett and Jessica were born in Northridge but Santa Clarita has been home for both of them. All 4 are Sierra Vista and Canyon High Alum.
Prior to the kennels, Mike's background was in construction and he also owned SCV Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning. Ligaya's background was in bookkeeping and accounting.
In 2011, the family moved on to the property to manage the kennels. They realized this was where they wanted to be and purchased the property and business from their boss in 2016.
Garrett will always be a part of the company and its operations but will eventually move on to pursue his dream of fabricating off-road vehicles.
Once Jessica finishes school, she will be the family veterinarian.
Our family thanks you for trusting us with your family.
Bouquet Canyon Kennels has been in existence since 1971. It was built by Carl Spitz, Jr, son of the legendary dog trainer Carl Spitz, Sr. Their family dog, Terry, was Toto in the Wizzard of Oz. Spitz, Sr. was also the founder of Hollywood Board and Train which opened in 1927 and is still in operation today.
