Puppy Boarding San Leandro, CA
Here at PupTown, it is our mission to provide positive reinforcement and various training methods to ensure that your dog can live a friendly, social and confident life. Our staff is dedicated to providing services and training through games and exercises that promote positive behaviors you will notice. Dog owners throughout San Leandro and the East Bay know that they can count on us to provide professional dog boarding and puppy daycare services for their pups whenever they need it.
Our Philosophy
Socialization is just as important for puppies as interaction and socialization is for babies and young children. By enrolling your puppy into our care, you are also helping him or her develop social skills through play and interaction with other dogs.

We strive to be “Doggy Ambassadors,” and we encourage our clients to follow in our footsteps to foster appropriate and healthy behavior for our furry friends. We want to keep our community and our clients aware of appropriate public behaviors, so you may want to know the following: 
  • Almost all cities have leash laws; keep your dog on a leash unless you are in a designated off-leash area.
  • Pick up your dog’s waste and dispose of it properly.
  • Don’t allow your dog to approach unknown people or dogs unless welcomed.
This is all in our commitment to dogs and to our community to ensure a safe and happy environment for you, your dog and others. Our dog ambassadors and coaches are rigorously trained to provide quality training assistance and other services such as pet first aid and CPR. Our coaches are happy to help improve your dog’s performance and ultimately promote positive behaviors for years to come.
About Our Owner: Shasta
Shasta has been in the pet care industry for 13 years. She has been the owner of two successful dog-walking companies, Woofwalks (2000-2009) and Bow Wow Ventures (2009 to present). She has been a member of Pet Sitters International for eleven years and a member of the East Bay Pet Sitters Association for four years. She served as Chair of the East Bay Pet Sitters Association from 2011-12. Shasta is Pet CPR and First Aid certified. She has worked closely with the East Bay Regional Park as a liaison between the pet care community and Park board members. Working with animals has always come naturally to Shasta, as she grew up on a farm where she and her family cared for horses and cows. The farm life instilled in Shasta a dedicated work ethic, the love to teach, the drive for happiness and an enviable optimistic attitude.
