Our Services

Top dog standards

Your dog will settle into a private townhome and even have the option to enjoy a private yard accessible through a doggie door. Each townhome is separately ventilated with a constant flow of purified air to create a healthy environment. Last of all, playtimes (with friends or alone) in the play yard are always complimentary for our boarding guests.

While the humans are away, the puppies will play

Let your companion spend the day with us to release some of that energy. Your dog will enjoy playtime with other dogs of similar size/temperament and will return home tired and happy. Not sure how your dog will do in daycare?  Ask for a free trial and get 4 hours of free daycare on your pup’s first visit!

Pawville Training Academy

We believe there is no one way to train a dog. Dogs, much like people, learn tasks and desired behaviors in varying ways.  As such, we adjust our approach and methodologies based upon the needs of your pet.  Make sure to schedule an evaluation to meet our trainer and see how we can help with your training goals.

Fine Feline Living

Our kitty townhomes are located in a private cats-only room that is insulated for sound to create a serene environment for our feline guests. Daily cleaning, attention, and love from our caring staff (as well as laser light shows) are always complimentary.

No more long nails and dog smell

Our experienced and professional groomers are capable of providing a full range of grooming services ranging from beautiful poodle cuts to simple nail trims. We strive to make the grooming experience as comfortable as possible for every client and seek to establish a personal bond with each pet in our care. Most grooming appointments can be done within 3 hours from time of drop off.

Our Story

Our Story Began 2006


The Pawville story began in 2006 when Phil and Amanda Miller found a 5,000 sq ft pet store in Citrus County, FL and invested their savings and sweat equity to purchase and convert it into a pet boarding and grooming facility. From the start, they chose to focus heavily on the customer experience. This meant 1) investing heavily to train and retain high quality staff and 2) re-invest in their facility. This twin approach resulted in a satisfied and growing customer base which would provide the bedrock for future success.

In 2012


After moving to North Carolina, Phil and Amanda opened their second location in 2012. This facility followed a similar trajectory as their FL location to become the most popular pet services facility in the Topsail, NC region.

In 2015


Our Jacksonville, NC facility was added to the family when Pawville acquired the property at 471 Center St.  With a solid team of loving staff and an intense focus on the quality of the customer experience, Jacksonville Pawville has developed a loyal following of customers.  

Pawville Today


In 2020, Pawville began construction on Midtown Pawville (in Wilmington, NC) and acquired North Shore Pawville in Sneads Ferry, NC.  With six locations in the Southeast, Pawville continues to evolve and grow – adding service offerings and locations when these changes will help enhance the consumer experience for their human clients and their four-legged guests.

Emily began as a groomer at Pawville before transitioning into a shift supervisor role.  Her past grooming experience makes her a valued member of our leadership team as she understands how to read and handle the pets in our care.Emily has three of her own pups.  She received Katie (a yorkie mix) as a gift on her 9th birthday and she's been with her ever since. Even in her old age, she finds the energy to go kayaking and swim at the ocean.  She rescued two Miniature Australian Shepherds named Zeevah and Kye as puppies and they have been living life to the fullest, from chasing birds at the ocean, to dog agility, and attending doggy daycare from time to time.


Shift Supervisor

Nadine is a constant and calming influence at Pawville that keeps our pets feeling relaxed and loved.She has a little 9 year old maltipoo named Daisy and a corgi-mix named Lily that started off as a foster dog before working her way into Nadine's heart to become a permanent member of her family.
