From a press release:
“Patrick’s Pet Care, a leading pet services company in Washington D.C., today announced the grand opening of its second location in Brookland, NE. Located at 3509 12th Street NE. This new locale will bring a medium-to-large dog day school and overnight center to the Brookland community.
Not your typical day care, the day school will offer basic obedience training during the day, as well as evening training courses and overnight boarding.
“Dog training classes can be hard for working people to attend,” said Founder and General Manager Patrick Flynn. “We want to provide a convenient option for dogs to receive training both during the day and while customers are away on vacation.”
Curbside drop-off and pick-up service is available at the new Brookland location. Parking is also available in the rear. As an added convenience, Patrick’s Pet Care recently launched Pet Force One, a pet-friendly van to transport pups to and from the day school from anywhere in the city. The site will also serve as a “Woof Pantry,” in partnership with Big Bad Woof Pet Supply and Delivery Service of Takoma, where customers can both place and pick up pet supply orders.
The company’s commitment to becoming an integral part of the community and good neighbor starts with the day school displays of pet-themed art from local artists, including a tribute to “Momma’s Law” by Brookland sculptor Charles Bergen, as well as contributions from Jackie Coleman of Art Enables, an art gallery and vocational arts program in Woodbridge dedicated to creating opportunities for artists with disabilities.
“We’ve always been focused on community,” said Flynn. “Even as we expand, we still are a local business and want to celebrate and support the neighborhoods we serve.”
Dan Schramm, President of the Brookland Civic Neighborhood Association, said, “We are delighted to welcome Patrick’s Pet Care to Brookland. This is just the kind of local business we want to see in our community. BNCA wishes Patrick’s good fortune and good business!”
