This review is long over due. I have tried everything that Paw Paradise has to offer, their boarding, training and daycare. I cannot rave about this place enough.
Daycare: They pride themselves that they can deal with any dog no matter how aggressive or what issues they have. They can find a play mate for that dog. They are really really really knowledgeable with different dogs and breeds. Some pet daycares seem to employ people who love dogs and give the dogs everything that they want, which isn't aways the best thing. Sometimes dogs need space just like how we need space. Or sometimes they just don't play along with another dog for that specific day. Hey we all have mood swings and our dogs are no different. My dog Captian always comes home happy and tired after a fun day at the daycare. It is an out door day care so on the days it rains, you should just keep your dog at home. They have half day boarding (six hours) or full day (more than six hours). They are SUPER competitively priced.
Boarding: Lots of places tell me to bring the dogs bedding. Last place I boarded my dog I was giving a trash bag full of the shredded bedding. Paw Paradise told me not to bother with a bed at all. I Loved that they don't try to appease everything that the owners want because they have a deep understanding of how dogs are. No added fees for medication giving, or giving extra treats that I brought. Plus captain got to play in day care every day during his boarding where as other places would charge you for everything.
Importantly! Your dog doesn't need to be fixed to go here!!!!! I have called around to so many different day cares and boarding facilities and they all require the dog to be fixed in order to let the dog out to play with other dogs. But Paw Paradise doesn't believe that is necessary. Not that I don't believe in fixing my dog, but I am waiting for the right time.
Training: My dog has gone through obedience training at a different facility, however I really wanted to do off leash training. GAME. CHANGER. Let me tell you. I really feel like I don't ever need to second guess if he will listen to me or not. Cause he will now. I have gone on several hikes already with him off leash and its nice to know he can wander around sniffing everything he wants to sniff and will come back when I call him.
I can't rave enough about Paw Paradise. When you pull up it doesn't look like that awesome. But looks can be deceiving because it really has to do with the people at the facility and what they provide for the dogs. Are they attentive with with different dog demeanors and sounds. Do they KNOW what is going on with a certain bark or growl. Not all dog sounds means something dangerous. I have gone to expensive places with dog tv for the dogs and everything and have been sorely disappointed with the services they provide and how NOT attentive/knowledgable about dog behavior they were. To find a place that does it all is tough. To find a place that does it all AND reasonably prices is a diamond in the rough.
