  • "Perfection for Pets, Plus!

    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!"

They care about how the dogs get along and that each dog is in proper health before interacting. They are reasonably priced and offer package deals. The hours are convenient for me as well. I would recommend this place to anyone, no hesitations."
