Shannon’s Doggy Daycare offers boarding and grooming at new Madison location


Shannons Doggy DaycareClarksville, TN – The dogs at Shannon’s Doggy Daycare have wagged their way to a new location. The business, owned by Shannon Dowdy-Wall, has been in operation for three years.

“We’re a family-owned operated business,” said Wall. “We care for dogs at all times of the evening. We like to go the extra mile to make our customers happy.”

Wall is from Cincinnati, Ohio, where she grew up raising poodles. Several years ago, she decided to open her own facility. Business was great at the old location, but when the opportunity came to get a building with more space, Wall took advantage. “We have just moved to a 56,000 square foot facility,” she explained.

The building, which used to be the Island Bar and Grille, has a large fenced in area outside for the dogs, as well as an incredibly large playroom for them to run around and unleash their energy.

There is a grooming area and an apartment within the building for the 24 hour live-in person that monitors the animals. “There is always someone here overnight with the dogs,” said Wall. “We have a 24 hour live-in with boarders seven days a week and all night.”

Wall, who is also a cosmologist, sells dog toys, treats, shampoos, collars, bandanas and other items in her gift shop. Another bonus is her pet photography. Wall takes professional pictures of her dog clients. There are framed pictures of her photography on the walls of the gift shop.

Customers are also pleased by the lack of crating; no dog is ever crated or kenneled unless there is an absolute need. “They will be cage-free unless they are an aggressive dog,” Wall said. Prices are also convenient. Small dog boarding is $15.00 a night, medium size dogs are $18.00, and large dog are $20.00. The daycare is $13.00 per day.

Shannon’s Doggy Daycare is open for daycare and grooming on Monday through Saturday from 8:00am until 5:30pm. However, hours are easily re-arranged when convenient. “For boarding it depends on the availability when the customer needs to pick up and drop off,” Wall explained. The dogs are available for pickup on weekends as well.

Shannon’s Doggy Daycare (Boarding and Grooming) is located at 2551 Madison Street.
