Gentle Paws

The gentle care you would give your own pet. Family style dog boarding for small to medium dogs, and local care for your small animals.



We offer:

  • Dog play dates and daycare for well socialized dogs.
  • Family style boarding for longer stays for well-socialized dogs.
  • Local dog walking for small dogs.
  • Local pet sitting for cats and small animals during your absence.

We have:

  • Years of experience in dogs, cats, and small exotics.
  • Years of veterinary training. From simple care such as feeding, watering and exercising your pets, we can also recognize signs of illness, administer prescribed medications or other special care, and have an established relationship with a local emergency hospital for unforeseen circumstances.

“The capacity to care is the thing that gives life its deepest meaning and significance”. ~Pablo Casals

“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one…(Mine) taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things – a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.”

~ John Grogan

“Dogs are miracles with paws.” ~ Susan Kennedy
