I’m a dog lover, owner, trainer, handler, certified canine rehabilitation therapist and co-owner of Aqua Dog Rehabilitation, LLC, which has been in business for 10 years. I have combined all of my passions and experience to create Playful Paws at Petra’s. A Boarding Kennel and Grooming Spa that offers highly specialized care. We personalize each dog’s care and our highly trained staff spend quality, individual time with each guest. Our indoor kennels are a spacious 5’ by 5’ and our outdoor runs are 5’ by 15’. Please follow our progress on Facebook as we upgrade the entire facility to meet our high standards.

Support Rico and Lady

We inherited two surrendered dogs , Rico an approximately 10-year old Pitbull Mix (pictured above) and his “sister” Lady, an approximately 8-year old Pitbull Mix (pictured below). 
Their owner was diagnosed with brain cancer over a year ago.  She was boarding them until she recovered.  Sadly, she never did.  Lady and Rico have been at the kennel for over a year.  They get to see all the other boarding dogs go home to their families while time after time, they never do. We are doing everything we can to change that and get Rico and Lady their very own “Forever Homes”.

Lady and Rico both need medical attention. We are ONLY asking for donations to cover their vet bills and the consultations with the behaviorist.  We are more than happy to provide the rest.  We don’t want additional money. Any support is greatly appreciated. 



My vision is to create a home away from home. A facility I would trust with the care of my own dogs. Our building is climate controlled, equipped with an air purification system, soothing music and overnight staff on property. Every dog has indoor and outdoor runs and one-on-one time with staff. 


Want your dog to look nice to?  We provide a wide array of pet grooming services ranging from a simple brush out to custom clipping. Your best friend will come home looking and smelling fresh and clean!  Grooming rates vary by breed, so give us a call for an estimate.


Rest & Rehab

Whether your dog is recovering from surgery, a soft tissue injury, or requires conditioning we can provide intensive care during their stay. Dogs can receive scheduled rehabilitation sessions as well as “home exercise programs” carried out by our trained staff.. 


Health & Wellness

Ten years ago I started Aqua Dog Rehabilitation with my business partner. Over the years countless clients asked us if we knew where they could board their injured dogs. These dogs need very special and specific care. I am happy to say that we are now able to offer this to all of our clients. We WILL adhere to all restrictions and instructions such as pottying only on leash, no jumping, no running, etc. We also offer scheduled rehabilitation sessions with Petra and her staff so there is no loss of continuity in your dog’s care while you are away.
