Chief of Security

While MPC has a sophisticated alarm system throughout its spaces, Clio, our four-year old Golden Doodle, provides added security by announcing with a bark or two, everyone’s arrival. You’ll hear Clio when you approach the second level. But have no fear, she is well socialized, gentle and sweet dog.
