About Us

Our Story

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 our own

Our structured & personalized approach to each individual dog's care offers a unique low stress environment that makes every dog feel like part of our family, while having the time of their lives
