Stephannie’s Vision

DePAW is so much more to me than a dog daycare, boarding, and training facility. DePAW is the key to my dream of helping dogs become more integrated into everyday life. With the end of 2015, the critical stage of building a stronger foundation with great clients and services comes to a close. Now our attention is turning towards our focus on education that inspired the “University” theme all those years ago when I started. We will continue to offer the same great care we always have, and are taking steps to ensure even better customer service than we currently offer, but we are also going to be offering more ongoing educational opportunities for both pet owners and pet professionals. The more informed and equipped conscientious pet owners are, the more dog-friendly the community can become. There’s a lot of big stuff on the horizon and we will be offering some great workshops and seminars for those who wish to participate. We look forward to sharing it with you!

As a thank you for all you’ve done to help us grow, we have put together this book as a celebration of the past year! We hope you enjoy it!
