At Pawlins, our primary focus is on the health, safety, and well-being of your furry family member. Here’s what sets us apart. Each of our guest’s activities are hand selected based on the personality of your pooch! We would never use a cookie cutter approach, because your pet deserves individualized, personal care just like they get at home. We are about Canine Enrichment where we provide each guest with opportunities for social interaction with both humans and their dog friends and they get to play with toys that exercise their bodies and their minds. Our play groups are smaller which is safer for the pups and allows more human interaction, just like they get at home.

Comfortable Environment

We value a fear-free environment. Our boarding rooms have soft, dog-friendly colors. We use essential oils and music to soothe anxiety. We only use positive reinforcement techniques. We have an exclusive boarding and play room devoted to our petite pups with their own outdoor play yard, away from the large dogs. We use night-lights for nap times and at night for better rest. Indoor playrooms feature hospital-grade bacteria-resistant rubber flooring which is gentle on dog’s joints.

State-of-the-art Facility

Pawlins facility features a full veterinary hospital on-site to handle any emergency or routine checkups.

Our outdoor play yards have lush K-9 Grass, sanitized each day. There is no gravel to eat or cement to absorb contaminants and odors. No muddy paws here! Outside, there is a refreshing water park designed specifically for dogs to frolic in on hot days. The floors in the hallways, boarding and grooming areas are epoxy, which is impervious to odors, bacteria and chemicals. We use top-of-the-line Mason kennels that prevent cross-contamination by never allowing urine or other liquids to migrate between enclosures. We use a fully automated centrally located wet/dry cleaning system that completely sanitizes floors and enclosures leaving them virtually dry, and no dirty mop water!

Climate-Controlled & Secure

Pawlins is fully climate-controlled with a fresh-air-exchange filtration system that operates every 6 minutes, markedly reducing odors, and the risk of pets being infected with air-borne pathogens. There is an emergency generator so that your pets are never at risk of losing their perfect climate. Pawlins is safeguarded by an advanced security system, including smoke detectors, heat detectors, a fire alarm, and sprinkler system.

What your neighbors are saying…

Staff is incredibly friendly and you can tell they really do care about your pets. The lobby area is clean and smells great even for a dog daycare place. They made us feel very comfortable leaving our two dogs there. Plus I love that there is a vet clinic there as well so you know if anything ever happens, professional care is literally next door.
Jordan Lambert
They were able to take us as a new customer right away on a Saturday evening just as our former pet boarder closed early even though we had an appointment. We were leaving the next morning for 10 days and needed a boarding plan urgently. My dog was well cared for in a very clean and professionally run center. The extra cost came with extra value. I highly recommend this business.
Kirk Rossiter
I was heartbroken having to leave my Usi but the staff was so friendly, the room was spacious and clean with a backdoor to the yard, plus what was comforting was the royal suite had a webcam, so I could see him 24/7. Lastly, the most important part is they celebrated Usi’s bday and he smiled for his picture. Happy I found Pawlins. You won’t regret it!

We love Pawlins!! We go for haircuts & playtime. Allie got a haircut today & Ashley did an amazing job. Thanks so much!! Pawlins is so convenient, everyone is kind & they always go above & beyond. So happy to have you in New Orleans
Lisa Rogers
They are great!!! They take care of our baby Roxie as if she were their own. Very very friendly staff. Like that I can watch her on web cam highly recommended.
Christine Smith
The only thing nicer than the facilities at Pawlins is the staff. Everyone is always super helpful. The daycare is perfect for our high energy puppy. It’s always fun to watch the live cams Pawlins has and see our puppy running around having a ball in the ball pit!
William Gurley
Everyone is so friendly and professional. The facilities are immaculate! I love all of the different options for my pup throughout the day. She always comes home so happy, and so tired from all of the fun. What I really love the most is how excited the staff is to see her!!
Danielle Marie Sizemore
My pup LOVES Pawlins, and so do I! The staff is so nice and professional. By the second day we went, the entire staff knew my and my dog’s names and always greets us. Scout loves going to Pawlins and practically drags me into the lobby! Can’t recommend these folks enough.
Katie Cook
Beautiful, high tech, nice and professional service! Brought my puppy in for grooming and play time with other pups. I felt immediately comfortable with Pawlins and the staff. I will continue to use their services going forward.
Tuan Hoang

I take my mini aussie here and he loves the place. I get to see him on the camera throughout the day and he is always having a good time. I like that the team leaders treat him as if it was their dog and keep him busy. They pet him, play fetch with him and let him run around with his friends so he comes home and sleeps throughout the whole night. I highly recommend this place for anyone with a puppy or high energy dog.

Jolie had a great first day! The staff was super friendly and the facility was very impressive. Jolie had a full groom today and she looks great! I was very impressed that there was ALWAYS a staff member in each yard interacting with the dogs, loving on them and playing with them.
Kellie Forster
Needed my dog groomed right away as she dragging the backyard into the house. I was able to get a last minute appointment in a Sunday!!! Roux came back to us so beautiful. Thank you so much for the great service!!!
Kimberley Freeze
Our pup Kane had his first day of daycare today and he loved it! And we loved it so much we decided to board him at Pawlins for our upcoming trip. The staff was very friendly and responsive, and the facilities were in great condition.
Kyle Crabtree
Always very nice and takes great care of my pup! The facility is clean and the webcams are a great thing to check in on your pup. They always greet him by name and he loves going! Highly recommended.
