Our Story

Danica and her trusty sidekick Robin the yorkie started Paws Up! in January 2017. Shortly after the company took off,  Kevin the pomeranian wiggled his fluffy little bum into our pack and into our hearts. After a lifetime of love and compassion for all animals we knew where to use our talents and focus our attention; on ensuring that every member of the PawsUp! enjoys an active and healthy lifestyle. Many of our clients have become as close as family and each pack member gets the same love and attention that Robin and Kevin enjoy.

Ever since Danica was a child, she has loved animals. Whether she was bringing home kittens (which mother didn't like) or walking the neighbors dogs, they were always around her. She was born on a small farm and has spent her entire life immersed in animals. From working in specialty pet stores ranging from fashion to holistic health care, Danica has done it all. A passion for being around dogs and a desire to spend time with them in a casual environment is what this business is founded on. 

Robin Hood, the 4lb yorkshire terrier with the personality of a real ladies man will steal your heart. He spent the first year and a half of his life in the show ring, where he won several titles. He still studs for Spoild Rotten Yorkies in Langley, but now enjoys strutting his stuff in all the trendy canine fashions around Vancouver. You can find Robin on instagram under the handle #robintheyorkie . He never wears the same outfit two days in a row and you'll typically find him being toted around in some fashionable bag as he is the laziest dog ever. 

Kevin the 4.5lb pomeranian is the newest family member. His constant smile and eagerness brings everyone he meets so much joy. Don't let his size fool you, he never holds anything back! Watch yourself around this guy, he loves to give kisses! Kevin is the sweetest boy, making friends with every dog and person he meets.  After suffering a broken leg and and a few other health problems shortly after his homecoming, he is now back on his feet and ready to melt some hearts. ♡
