Extra Activities for Our Guests

We offer a wide variety of activities at Paws Awhile Pet Motel in Warrenton, VA. Apart from excellent lodging, doggie daycare and grooming services, our boarding fees cover climate-controlled, comfortable accommodations with careful and detailed monitoring of daily eating and bathroom habits, feeding, bedding and going out at least three to four times daily. You are welcome to add any extra activities to enhance your dog or cat’s comfort and happiness. At Paws Awhile, we delight in helping our guests have the most fun possible! We hand-pick the members of our small playgroups, matching sizes and play styles for maximum comfort and fun. There’s always Team members joining in the action and making sure everyone is engaged and having a good time. If the weather is not appropriate for the requested activity, we will substitute a different activity.
