The Pooch Pawsitive Dog Center houses our Puppy Academy and our Dog Daycare Programs.
Starting small in 2013 inside Rumford Pet Center, our Puppy Preschool program moved to our current 6000 square foot location in East Providence in May 2017 where we now offer programs for dogs of all ages. In addition, our 1200′ of artificial turf in a fenced outdoor space is a convenient and safe area for play, training and potty breaks.
Originally installed in January 2019 to combat kennel cough, PetAirapy UV air disinfection equipment is installed throughout our building, and it also kills COVID 19! We clean and sanitize the rest of our center daily with veterinarian grade cleaners and disinfectants from Health Technology Products.
We pride ourselves on having a low dog to staff ratio, typically 8-10 dogs per staff member. We can arrange at least 7 play areas so that we can group dogs with appropriate playmates!
Pooch Pawsitive’s strength is that most of our staff have received formal education on dog training and behavior through the Academy for Dog Trainers, Animal Behavior College or Karen Pryor Academy. All of our staff has received additional training on dog behavior through the Dog Guru’s Knowing Dogs and FetchFind educational programs and through our library of books and videos.
Everything we do at our Dog Center is through the lens of a trainer, always ensuring that the dogs in our care are healthy physically, mentally and behaviorally.
