Hi, I'm Marcell
It has always been my dream to have my own business. As a kid, I always planned to attend veterinary school however I graduated with a degree in Hotel Management. Papaw’s Dog House allows me to bring those two worlds together (the passion and love for animals and my knowledge of hospitality and service). This is how the Papaw’s Dog House dream first came to life.
My idea was to create a space where every single detail was designed thoughtfully and for the enjoyment of the dogs and where dog owners can leave their best friends knowing that they will be treated the same way owners do at home. I wanted to build a unique space focused on health and well-being that was different from anything else in the marketplace, a service, and a care-oriented atmosphere that from the food, areas to play, and members of our Care Team is absolutely best-in-class.
I am a dog lover and owner. I have completed courses in Dog’s Cognition and understanding how dogs behave from Duke University, Animal Behaviour, and Welfare with the University of Edinburgh and I am certified in CPR and First Aid for dogs.
We live in a world where there is a growing understanding and concern about biodiversity and the animal world. I want to be part of that. As humans are taking better care of themselves I want to do the same for our dogs.
To ensure the health and safety of our customers, dog(s), and our Care Team, Papaw’s Dog House will provide store employees with preventative, disposable face masks and gloves and we will make sure that every dog that comes inside the store will have their paws cleaned. Social distancing practices will be enforced and hand sanitizer will be provided throughout the store. We strongly encourage shoppers to wear protective face masks and coverings. Our Care Team will frequently disinfect hard surfaces, perform extra hand washing during their shifts, and spend additional time cleaning our facilities and all equipment including toys each evening and throughout the day.
