I just wanted to thank you all for all your hard work, patience and kindness during Abbey’s and mine obedience class. All of you went over and above the call of duty. It is very apparent that not only is the staff at Playful Paws qualified in their tasks, but also they sincerely love dogs and enjoy working with them. Abbey always looked forward to going to class as well as daycare.

So happy to have found playful paws and their wonderful staff! They have worked with Dolly in their specialized program and have been so incredibly patient and helpful to both her and I. After being kicked out of other daycares I was so appreciative that they had a program to help her work through her issues and able her to join in on the fun! Cannot wait to see how much farther they take her.
