Important   Note:

During the past year, of the Covid-19 Pandemic, South Paw Acres has been able to remain open for business because we have taken all the recommended precautions to keep both our clients and our staff safe. As the world now begins to emerge from this 'safety bubble', we plan to continue following these safety precautions, and keep our play groups and boarding numbers smaller for the foreseeable future. This will ensure a safer and more harmonious environment for all.

Overnight boarding is being scheduled, but on a more limited basis than in years past. Regular slots for day care are limited & occasional play dates are filled as they open up.

All requests for services will be considered with respect to how well your dog can fit into the existing schedule and play groups.

When dropping off or picking up your dog, please remain in or near your car and a staff member will help you!

Please email us with any questions you may have at

Thank you for your patronage and understanding!
