About Us


"Come and play for the day or vacation with us while your parents are away."


Our Mission

My name is Melanie, and I am the owner of Playful Paws. This black beauty here is my dog Jax. Together we want to make your pet feel welcomed and loved as if they were at home. We offer an open and inviting environment for your pet. Keeping your pet active will be no problem with the variety of toys that we have along with outside time every hour. The outside is a fenced in natural grass area for our friends to play in. We also make sure that our friends have fresh clean water every hour. It is important that your friend is happy and healthy while spending their time with us.


Services Offered

We offer a daily daycare service to care for your loved pet while you are at work or away. Our boarding service is a great way for your pet to have a vacation while you are on vacation. We make sure to send you pictures and videos of your pet so you can see they are having a fun time with us!

What's the Difference

What's Your Breed?


Your breed doesn't matter to us. Our family welcomes all breeds. We treat each animal as an individual and care for their needs as such. 

Room to Play


We understand that not all dogs like being in large groups. We have areas dedicated to size and personalities of our furry friends that come to play with us. Included in the areas are t.v.'s and toys for our friends to enjoy.

Cage Free


When boarding your friend, they will spend the day playing with our daycare friends at no additional charge. When it's time to spend the night, they will go to their designated room, which has plenty of space for them to move, sleep and play. If they have other friends with them, they will be able to be together for the night.
