As the owners of City Paws, we would like to introduce ourselves and say how excited we are to finally be open in the Mill City Neighborhood of Downtown Minneapolis! Dogs have always been a passion of ours and we are ecstatic to bring you a service that the downtown area has never seen before! Our daycare model will not only train and socialize your pup with other furry friends, but it will also give them one on one attention with our trained instructors to engage them mentally with our nose work activities, our agility course and working them out with our FitPaws activities😊! This is only the start to what we have to offer that you and your fur baby will love. We also provide beautiful suites for lodging, self serve bathing and full service grooming, along with retail items your pup can’t live without! We are your one stop shop to keep your pup happy, healthy and loving life! We look forward to serving the community and getting to know each and every one of our clients! -Dan, Sitania, Leona and Kevin our Golden Retriever

Kathleen

Dog Instructor

Hi! I'm Kathleen. I’ve loved being around dogs for longer than I can remember, my first word was even the name of my family dog, Bobo. I helped walk and sit for dogs around the neighborhood and for family friends since I was about 12 years old, and it was so rewarding for me. After graduating, my husband and I moved from Wisconsin to Minneapolis, and I have been working as a dog walker in the city and loving every minute of it. Working with dogs is truly a dream, and I believe all dogs are good dogs. I look forward to meeting your good dogs and can’t wait to help care for them as though they were my own!

When I'm not working, I'm a student at the University of Minnesota studying Graphic Design and Computer Science.
