Piper is a 3 year old Golden Retreiver. She began staying at The Pooch early this year. She is gentle and very friendly. She loves to play with the other dogs. She frequently walks up and stands next to a staff member seeking their affection (and she definately gets a lot of affection!) We sure enjoy Piper!
As the new owners of Playful Pooch, we are eager to carry on the great care and attentiveness that Will and Brenda have shown to the wonderful Pooch customers. We have been animal lovers since we were children and we both grew up with dogs and have many pets of our own. Our life long dream has been to own a petcare business and provide the highest quality of personalized customer service.
Brad spent the last 32 years in the hotel business, mostly in operations and customer service. Sharene also spent 20 years in the same industry in operations and sales. She is currently a professor of hospitality management at Johnson and Wales University. Our experience of caring for people and animals for so many years will serve us well in this business. We feel a common bond when it comes to taking care of our customers, whether human or canine, and showing individual attention to each. They all have their own personalities and needs and that's what makes Playful Pooch so special.
We believe that together with our incredible staff, we can provide a unique combination of customer service, love and attention to your dogs that will make us your first choice for dog daycare and boarding.
Our staff is absolutely the best in town! We hire caring staff who know how much fun it is to work in a doggy daycare, but also understand how dedicated you must be to work 365 days a year.

This is awarded based upon the extensive training that our staff has received.
