    Our family & Portuguese Water Dog are thrilled with Poochie's staff, facilities, hours and boarding options. Our Portie absolutely goes crazy when we pull into the street knowing she will have another fun "play care" day @ Poochie's. We feel confident in the professional & pleasant staff. Our dog is exhausted from a full day of fun in the clean indoor/outdoor facilities. They also offer some excellent healthy treats, retail and grooming options. Thank you!"

I would recommend this place to anyone, no hesitations."
