Paul Whitehurst - Owner and Founder of Pooch Palace Resort


Pooch Palace Resort was founded in 2017 for other pet parents like myself who want only the best for their dog.   I have always been passionate about dogs and it has been a dream of mine to work with them.  My best friend of 13 years, a German Shepard named Zoey, passed away in June of 2016.  Soon after this loss, I decided that rather replace Zoey with another dog, why not replace her with hundreds of dogs and care for each of these dogs as I would my own.  Welcome to Pooch Palace Resort.  Your dog’s home away from home!

I have spent the first half of my professional life in the corporate world and will spend the next half doing what I feel I was put here to do, love and care for dogs.  Pooch Palace Resort is the culmination of over 16 years of business experience, hardcore determination and a childhood dream that never died.

I was never satisfied with options for Zoey when I traveled.  I did not like the idea of putting her in a cage or small space while I was away.  So I know that uneasy feeling of leaving your pup and wondering "will they be happy, comfortable and safe while I am away?"  When you entrust your 4-legged family member with our staff, I guarantee they will receive the same high quality, loving care that they receive in your own home.
