Our pooch of the week is Matilda, a beautiful German Shepherd mix (mostly German Shepherd) that has been coming to the Pooch since October of 2013. She is 6 years old and is very well behaved, a perfect group dog! All the staff loves her and we are fortunate to have her at the Pooch!
As the owners of Playful Pooch our top priority is to provide attentive care for your dogs as if they were our own. We have been animal lovers since we were kids and we both grew up with dogs and have many furry friends of our own. Our dream has been to own a petcare business and provide the highest quality of personalized customer service.
Brad and Sharene have over 50 years combined experience in the hotel business working in operations, sales and customer service. Our experience of caring for people and our own animals for so many years serves us well at Playful Pooch. 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 provide a unique combination of customer service plus the 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.
