From our clients...

Paws and Claws is the finest boarding facility we have ever dealt with. Our English Setter needs a lot of exercise and the large, indoor arena is ideal to let her run and frolic with so many doggy friends. The facility is meticulously clean and very spacious. The staff are like family to us and our fur baby. Highly recommended for either day care or overnight stays. We drive almost 40 minutes one way to drop off our dog and it's well worth it.

Denise Evans – 5 stars

You know the place. If your dogs had to stay somewhere, you wish they would spend all afternoon romping with their friends surrounded by agility equipment, toys, and friendly people to throw balls. They would be in clean, state-of-the-art facilities. And, when they would return back home, they would be well behaved.

It is not in your dreams.

This place does exist! ....

Thank you, Paws and Claws, for being in our lives.


We boarded our 5-month old puppy at Paws and Claws for three days over the New Year holiday. As it was the first time "Mango" had been away from us, the family was nervous about saying good-bye, but the folks at Paws and Claws put us instantly at ease! The facility is wonderful -- very clean and welcoming...

I have my precious puppy B2 there enjoying a weeks vacation.

A+ highly Recommend!
