What’s Happening at Suite Paws?
Posted on: December 11th, 2014 by SuitePawsThis month we are adding a new section onto our Superstars of the Month. We will be highlighting an Employee of the Month as well as pets from each department. Without wonderful employees, we wouldn’t have a successful business. They make us all that we are, so we want to reward them monthly as well! […]
Posted on: December 5th, 2014 by SuitePawsAs we plan to switch the website and re-launch the whole site, I thought it necessary to pull the information we’ve collected so far on the building process into it’s own blog post. We’ve been working on this facility so long, that we’ve updated our base page a few times with pictures and details of […]
Posted on: November 14th, 2014 by SuitePawsDoggie Daycare Dogs of the Month: Winnie Smith Winnie is a mellow King Charles Spaniel who likes to take it easy most days. She isn’t the most playful and usually more of a people dog and this suits us just fine! We can get more cuddles and love since she always likes to perch […]
Posted on: October 22nd, 2014 by SuitePawsOne of the hardest decisions we have to make at Suite Paws is determining which dogs to remove from the daycare pack, and which dogs will fail their temperament tests. Often times we’re heart broken and just plain torn up emotionally over removing a dog. Especially if it’s a dog we’ve known since they were […]

Posted on: September 18th, 2014 by SuitePawsMy own yard at home has started to become a bit more populated by the leaves from one specific tree that must be sensitive to the waning of sunlight.

Posted on: May 16th, 2014 by SuitePawsDid you know that we offer multiple options for your dog’s nails when you visit the grooming at Suite Paws? The two main choices you have are either a regular trim, or a nail grinding. For many dogs, getting their nails done is frightening. This can be due to a traumatic quick cutting that they […]

Posted on: March 19th, 2014 by SuitePawsI posted a link over on Facebook, that I thought was important enough to share here as well. I don’t know how many dogs in the years that we’ve been open have come thru our daycare program and either gotten a failed temperament test for being “too shy for the pack” or after coming and […]
Posted on: March 12th, 2014 by SuitePawsAs you may know, one of the main purposes in the original foundation of Suite Paws was the desire to assist homeless pets.

Posted on: February 11th, 2014 by SuitePawsAs I post this, we are anticipating more snow in the next couple days in Raleigh. I got to thinking that I hadn’t posted any of our fun pictures here from the recent snow storm we had a couple of weeks ago. We delayed daycare on the morning of the snow storm, so I ventured […]
