Dan Thompson founded Dog Pawz play N stay in Historic Leawood in Sept 2010. He is an avid dog lover who started Dog Pawz due to the lack of cage-less, open play doggie daycare options in Kansas City. Thompson was appointed to the Great Plains SPCA board of directors last year. He is very active in the Kansas City dog adoption community and prides himself in connecting people and pets.
He has attended several “dog behavior” classes and takes dog care and safety very seriously. After years of considering other areas in Kansas City and other partnerships, Thompson decided to expand into the Downtown/Crossroads area with the second location. He has turned down several franchise requests for Dog Pawz play N stay in order to maintain a hands on approach. He is very involved in the housing community and has two fur babies, Labradoodles, Jaxson and BoDee.
