Our Paws Family
Voted Calgary's best dog daycare and best place to spoil your dog! Established in 2005, Pawsitively Pooched was inspired by the love and compassion that so many of us feel for our loyal four-legged best friends. Our goal is to offer a facility that exceeds owners' expectations, a facility that cares for the dogs and clients as though they are a part of the family.
We follow a unique methodical approach to structured daycare, grooming, and recreational & therapeutic warm water swimming. Our staff are trained and certified in first aid, grooming, anatomy, obedience training, hydrotherapy and more. Our facility has over 3,300 sq ft indoor and 700 sq ft outdoor green space. It is located in NW Calgary by Confederation Park. Come in for a tour!
We turned 11 this year! Stop by Paws and celebrate with us! Swimming in our warm water pool is a great way to exercise, burn calories, stay in shape, decrease inflammation, and pre-op, post-op rehab for our young & senior pups!
