With years of experience in the dog boarding industry I will be your loved one’s PAWFECT PET PROVIDER whenever you can’t be close.
Hello, I’m David Shaw. I have lived in the Country Forest / Jackson Meadows community of Dallas, Texas since 2006.
Prior to starting I Luv Pawz I’ve served in the culinary and hospitality industry for years in luxury homes and on yachts from Newport Beach, California to Atlanta, Georgia as a caterer, cooking teacher and personal chef.
I still love cooking, however the long hours standing in one location in a kitchen at a stove or prep table over the years are tough on one’s knees. So, I decided to “let my business go to the dogs” and turned to my other love, animals. As a result I began my pet friendly business called I Luv Pawz. Today I have transferred my passion for excellent service and provide care and kindness to my furry friends and their loving humans as a professional dog boarder.
My philosophy of animal care is founded in “force free positive reinforcement”. In other words, canine positive and dog friendly with no hitting, scolding, yelling, painful discipline or other unfriendly-ness of any kind. I do not support or use prong, choke or shock collars.
When a pet is treated with the right kind of rewards, stimulus and communication there is no need to force, coerce, or intimidate your dog to behave properly. When your dog “trusts” you there is never any need to intimidate or create a fearful environment. The trusting relationship between you and your dog fosters the “good” behavior that a dog owner enjoys on a daily basis. This is exactly the same relationship and behavior that I always promote with every I Luv Pawz client and every dog I care for.
I am the sole owner and the only employee of my company. You and your dog will receive personalized attention from me and only me. No one else. No large company to deal with. No one else to have to get used to. Just me, David Shaw of I Luv Pawz Dog Boarding.
