The Natural Paw, LLC (established June, 2011) is a dog care facility specializing in individualized and activity based care for dogs. We believe in handling dogs in a way that comes naturally to them; in a pack and being social while employing only positive reinforcement techniques. We are proudly a FORCE-FREE establishment.
Our management team is educated in many aspects of dog ownership including but not limited to; dog behavior, nutrition, first-aid, and we require all staff to be Red Cross pet first aid certified. We will not discriminate and all breeds are accepted pending a successful evaluation day.
Our indoor/outdoor facility is equipped to safely accommodate puppies, elderly dogs, small dogs, intact males/females and even dogs that may not be able to integrate into the pack and need one-on-one time with a staff member. We can even accommodate dogs that have been previously asked to leave other daycares.
The Natural Paw offers many different enrollment options for camp that range from to 2-hour drop-in playgroups while you run errands, to monthly day camp enrollment for the busier dog parents. They also offer multiple lodging options for dogs, so you can have a worry-free vacation. Additional services include hour-long hikes in Willowdale State Forest, basic baths and nail trims.
On the natural side, The Natural Paw has limited vaccination requirements and is one of the only facilities in the area to accept titers in lieu of vaccines. We offer homeopathic and traditional remedies in our first-aid kit.
