Meet our new pooch Makavelli! (He is on the left) He is a rescue just like his sibling Everest. He is an 8 year old Saint Bernard but acts more like he is still a puppy! We call him Mak and are happy to have him in our family. You may occasionally see him along with Everest at Playful Pooch!

Pooch of the Week: Biscuit


Meet Biscuit! She is a five year old Goldendoodle and has been visiting Playful Pooch since she was just a pup! She is very well behaved and playful at the same time. She loves coming to daycare and sometimes we think she is part human! She is a joy to have as part of our great group of dogs that come to play.

Our Philosophy:  We believe that it is critical to find a balance between socialization, exercise, and play time for dogs of all ages.  Everyone that visits must be able to get along with other dogs so they are able to participate in our social program.  We are not able to provide services to those who cannot play nicely or those that play too "ruff".

Puppies need to learn how to play properly and become socialized with other puppies and young dogs at a very early age from about 12 weeks of age. We will introduce your puppy to other dogs a few at a time until they are comfortable being in with all the dogs of their size or temperament.
