Playful Pack: Locally owned and family operated

January 29, 2024
Playful Pack owners Scott Parker, Tyler Parker and Alyssa Parker

At Playful Pack, we love dogs. They’ve been our passion right from the start, which is why we’ve put so much of ourselves into the process of dreaming, building, and creating the daycare and boarding facility we now have. We’re not just another dog care business: We’ve built an entire community of dog lovers who are fully committed to your furry friends, and we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished and hope to accomplish in the coming years.

Our Vision

Imagine a space that is safe for dogs to explore, snooze, socialize, and learn. Playful Pack was created from the very start to be a space where dogs can truly be their best selves. From diminutive Miniature Schnauzers and Jack Russell Terriers to burly Newfoundlands and Alaskan Malamutes, our PackMates come from all breeds and all walks of life, which is why our facility is designed for versatile fun.

Our daycare facilities feature equipment designed just for dogs and use only dog-safe cleaning products. We have a weekly activity routine that keeps our furry friends mentally and physically fit and incorporates new and exciting activities and adventures daily. Here your dog can not just get all that extra energy out of their system, but they can also thrive in an environment built solely for them.

Our Family, Our Pack

Playful Pack is locally owned and family-operated. Scott Parker, Tyler Parker, and Alyssa Parker teamed up to create a space just for dogs. They considered everything from exercise and mental health needs to the kind of facilities needed to help dogs thrive. Our dog daycare and boarding facilities feature everything your dog needs to stay healthy and happy for a few hours or a few days. Our founders have a passion for pups, and that’s a passion shared by every member of their Playful Pack team! We make it easy for you to stay connected, too, with webcam access that allows you to check in at any time of the day or night. We even have the resources and ability to manage dogs with additional needs, including those that need oral medications.

Our Commitment

We believe so strongly in supporting our furry friends that we work closely with local dog rescues and charity organizations to support dogs in need. That includes Home Animals Rescue Team (HART), Mutt Love Rescue, A Forever Home, and LOVEPAWS, all of which help foster dogs find their forever home. Our role is to help socialize and support these pups in need. At our facility, foster dogs can enjoy the perks of our boarding facility while meeting new dogs and people during daycare to help them build confidence and learn how to make friends. Our clients’ support is invaluable in helping us reach these goals.

Our Community

About 65 million Americans currently own one or more dogs, and the dog industry brings in about $140b annually. Plenty of big corporations are eyeing this potentially lucrative market, but Playful Pack is locally owned and operated. Our founders are all located in the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area, and they are personally responsible for the operation and oversight of each of our facilities. We’re fully committed not just to the success of Playful Pack but also to your pup’s success. Contact us today to learn more about how we can support your furry family member’s health and well-being.
