About Us

Small Paws Daycare and Boarding is a husband and wife team with over 25 years combined experience caring for dogs. We offer supervised play and interaction right from our Washington, DC home. We are dedicated to providing the kind of personalized care and one-on-one attention for your furry companions that you won't find at larger daycare centers and kennels. 


We believe that your loved one deserves to be treated as a family member in our home. Positive reinforcement is used when communicating with your dog. We have experience with seniors, those with separation anxiety, and special 

needs (including short nose breeds). 


We have two small dogs who are our world. They get along great with other dogs and love having friends over. We 

have a fenced back yard and give bathroom breaks as often as needed. We live in a house that always has street parking for easy drop-off and pick-up on a quiet, safe residential street, conveniently located in the Hill East neighborhood.


Book your dog's stay today by using the book a service form below. We can’t wait to start looking after your fur-baby.

Testimonials

What Our Customers Think

I couldn’t be happier with my experience boarding with Chloe! She did a great job keeping me informed of how Penny was doing, communication was easy and quick, and she sent lots of photos showing me how much fun Penny had during her stay! I’ll definitely be booking with her again and am so glad to have someone who I know I can trust to care for my Penny like their own. Thank you Chloe!

Emily C.

Chloe was so kind and took such good care of Pear! This was Pear's first time without us for an extended period of time, and Chloe made us feel so at ease with all of the regular updates with great pictures showing how much fun Pear was having. We would definitely recommend Chloe!

Elina S.

Chloe is amazing to my baby girl, she loves going there and I feel so comfortable leaving her. She treats my Cocoa like one of her own. She is dependable and trustworthy. I am so glad we found her and her family.
