Oh, my goodness! Our sweet girl LOVES her Mutty Paws family - and so do her parents! We're so happy to have this home away from home where we get the best care and love for our little Ella pup. Courtney and her staff are always professional, kind, prompt; you drop off and pick up knowing your fur baby has been in the best hands with the best trainers! All the smiles, tail wags, thumbs up, high fives, and stars for this premiere pup facility!


Our dog Lloyd can be a little bit of a handful sometimes, mixed with anxiety, he isn’t always a good fit for doggy daycare. Well, the folks at Mutty Paws really changed that! I applied online and received a phone call within 5 minutes of submitting! Courtney, the GM, was great with Lloyd on his initial exam day and official entry into the program. He loves the smaller class sizes and the individual break time on his enrolled class day. We also had great luck with their boarding program. We received a daily report card, and it gave us the right amount of information to help ease our own anxiety while traveling. The staff is wonderful, kind, and knows who we are and who we are picking up when we arrive! 10 out of 10 recommend!


Amazing doggie daycare and boarding! The attention and care at Mutty Paws are second-to-none. The facility is clean and organized. Play time isn't just a free-for-all with lots of different dogs in a play area with little supervision - it's smaller groups of well-matched dogs, great supervision and structured play - like sending your dog to school. Our dog is very friendly but can be a little timid sometimes... but he gets so excited when we pull into Mutty Paws and can't wait to get inside. The times that we have boarded him here, we could tell he had a great time and wasn't stressed about not seeing his family for a few days. Based on how much our dog loves spending time at Mutty Paws... we know he is in great hands!
