Paw-some Dog offers Cage-free Daycare which allows you not to have to spend the day away from your pup. Drop off in the morning and pick up your dog at night before you go to bed. During the day our dogs are divided by temperament and split between the first and second floor. Let them play all day so they come home nice and tired for you.

24 Hour pICKUP

Need to drop off your pup before your early flight? At Paw-some Dog, we allow you to drop off or pick your dog up at anytime. We know your schedule can be a little hectic, and we are here to help. Even if the lobby is closed you can still get your dog by calling our number and meeting a staff member on the side door.


Cage-free offers your dog a unique way to stay with a person. At night, all our dogs go up stairs in an AC and heat controlled room, and sleep with a staff member watching and cleaning up after them. We do love to cuddle too!


100% cage-free environment for dogs. Originally called The Loved Dog, Paw-some Dog acquired the business in January 2018. Everything, except ownership has stayed the same including all the staff and many customers. We truly love dogs and value them as a part of the family. With keeping on The Loved Dog method, we treat your dog as if he or she is our own. We have two floors to split up the pack during the day, and at night all our dogs sleep together in a open room with a staff member. We have staff on-site 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. We are also open 365 days a year. We look forward to meeting you and your pup!

Meet the owner

Hi - I'm Julia and happy to meet you!
I speak dog, I know dog's behavior, and I have a ridiculous amount of knowledge on dogs. I love dogs and your dog will be treated just like my own. Dogs have been a life passion of mine. I started working at PetSmart studying dogs, while I was a student at Arizona State University. I graduated with a degree in business and communications and minored in Film and Media production. While continuing my work at PetSmart, I moved out to Los Angeles.  Since 2015, I have successfully ran another doggie daycare and boarding facility near LAX. I know how important a dog is. They're not just an animal.  They are our best friends, our child, a member of our family. I got my dog, Mojo, right before I moved out to California. He came up to me on the grounds of on an Indian reservation, and the rest is history.  From my own personal experience, I know how hard and important it is in finding a place where you feel comfortable leaving your dog.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Paw-Some Dog! I have two pretty high-maintenance small dogs who don’t get a lot of opportunities to socialize with other dogs due to leash aggression/fear. For their trial session, the owner Julia met me for the appointment and watched on the video feed with me as the manager and handler slowly and carefully introduced my pups to the other dogs. They took the time to work with my boys and teach them how to greet other dogs. I was so impressed with every single step of the process, and the incredible people who work at Paw-Some. Since that initial trial, I have brought my dogs to Paw-Some many times, for daycare and for two long weekends of boarding. I am able to go out of town with absolutely NO worries, because I know my babies are being cared for by the greatest team! Best of all, I can tune in to the YouTube live feed at any time to see my boys playing with other pups and getting lots of love from humans. And Julia texts me tons and tons of photos showing what a great time they’re having! This place is just the best!
