Simon, Welcome Waggin’ "Group Play" Organizer
When you enter The Paw Zone, a giant, goofy Doberman pinchsher might welcome you to our facility. Don’t worry, this is just Simon, our beloved mascot (and Diane’s dog)! You can find him in the play area or greeting clients. His favorite time of the day is when new kids come to The Paw Zone. He loves to help with chores and will always be the first in on pool days.

The Welcome Waggin’

Simon is a 2 1/2-year-old Doberman Pinscher who loves being the center of attention. Simon is a happy guy who is on his way to becoming a certified Search and Rescue K-9. He is incredibly talented and takes his job seriously. When he isn’t finding missing people, he loves to swim, do weight pull (up to 320 pounds!), go to parks, and chase geese from our pond.

Summer is an 8-month-old Doberman Pinscher who loves to have fun! Summer is more reserved. She likes to visit people, but doesn’t have to be the focal point. She is a typical puppy and loves to play, play, play. Summer is well on her way to becoming a top-certified Search and Rescue Human Remains Detection Dog (HRD). Such talent for such a young lady! She displays the type of talent a K-9 handler only dreams of. When she isn’t busy working, Summer enjoys chasing Simon, running on our 240 acres, chasing geese from our pond, and chewing up toys.

Emmi, Sunni and Lexi are 11 years, 9 years and 7 years old. They are Miniature Pinschers who enjoy the nice, easygoing lives of our home. They come to the Zone once or twice a week because they enjoy socializing but enjoy their beds even more! They love running on the farm on our walks, and Emmi loves to swim. They love going to spend the week at Grandmom’s house! The girls enjoy going for car rides — it doesn’t matter where, just as long as we hit the road!
