On July the 4th Paddington Pups decided to hold our first breed day and it was a huge success!
We ended up with 24 French Bull dogs and we gave them a whole big section of the day care all for them selves.
We are looking forward to doing some more in the near future. If you would like to see your dog joining in on one of our awesome breed days help us to get in contact with more dog owners with the same breed as yours so we can have more of these fun days!
Here are some photos of the day!

Maci is a 2 year old French Bull dog x Pug who has been coming to us for just over a year now. Every morning she arrives her mum and dad struggle to contain her excitement as she greets all of us at the door.

We love having her in and hope she never leaves us!… Click here to read more….
Some of you may have noticed a few small changes happening at Paddington Pups in the past couple of months. As we like to continuously maintain our label as the ‘best Doggy Day Care’ in Queensland, we consulted a Feng Shui analyst who is a current client to improve the exterior and interior appearance of Paddington Pups.
After consulting with our client about our Feng Shui in early March, it was made evident that we needed to improve our stores flow and appearance. We needed to create energy and movement throughout the store because we want the dogs, clients and staff to be in the best possible environment.

Despite their threatening appearance they are very gentle with children making them great family dogs. They also get along extremely well with other animals if they are introduced at a young age.
They are fairly inactive dogs when kept indoors but do require lots of exercise and would benefit greatly from long daily walks.
The Dogue de Bordeaux is a relatively healthy breed of dog … Click here to read more….
