Columbia Heights-based Patrick’s Pet Care is preparing to open another location in Brookland, which will provide day care, overnight boarding and obedience training for dogs weighing at least 35 pounds.

The new location, at 3509 12th St. NE, is set to open Oct. 2 and will feature obedience training sessions during the day or evening.

“Dog training classes can be hard for working people to attend,” founder and general manager Patrick Flynn said in a release. “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 pickup will be available, and Patrick’s Pet Care also offers a van service that will transport dogs to and from anywhere in the District. Customers can also place and pick up pet supply orders on-site from Takoma’s Big Bad Woof pet supply and delivery service.

Pet-themed art from local artists will be featured at the new location, including a tribute to the “Momma’s Law” animal cruelty regulation by Brookland sculptor Charles Bergen, and contributions from Jackie Coleman of Art Enables, an art gallery and vocational arts program in Virginia dedicated to creating opportunities for artists with disabilities.

Patrick’s Pet Care is offering 50 percent off all services booked at the new location before Sept. 30. There is also a giveaway contest for one month of free daycare and other prizes.
