Our love for pups runs in the family.

Pampered Pooch Playground

Inspired by their pup, Roxy, a Bernese Mountain dog, Keith and Patrycia Miller opened Pampered Pooch Playground on April 20th, 2008 in St. Louis Park, MN, just minutes from downtown Minneapolis and Edina. 

With outstanding customer service and the care of each dog put above anything else, we have loved becoming a part of the lives of so many community members and their pups. We are known nationally for being a leader in using technology and our strong pack management skills. 

We also work closely with many local rescues, including The Pet Project, Homeward Bound, Pet Project Rescue and many more. Because there are very few regulations for doggy daycares in Minnesota, we’re a founding member of the Twin Cities Dog Daycare Association, which helps to set standards of care.

We're proud to be one of the few 100% family owned and operated facilities in the Twin Cities. 




We work like dogs — and love every minute.

Keith and Patrycia are very involved in the day-to-day operations of Pampered Pooch Playground. When not at the doggy daycare they can be found at Bubbly Paws Dog Wash (their other business) or around Minneapolis with their dog, Roxy.
