Our Story


Chattanooga is one of the outdoor hubs of the southeast, and a community of avid dog-lovers. Before September 2017 the dog-loving community, like many others of its size, was relegated to local dog parks with no oversight, little grounds maintenance, and lack of opportunities for pup parents to gather regularly.

Owners Bob and Courtney Poore are an active and professional couple. Bob and Courtney love experiencing everything that Chattanooga has to offer with their two beautiful girls, and their handsome dog Remy.

After opening a wholesome, successful, locally-owned pet supply store in Chattanooga’s Northshore, Nooga Paws, as well as a synthetic grass install & supply service, Nooga Turf, these Tennessee natives turned their attention to acquiring a dog daycare.

While touring daycares, and searching for a property to develop, they were directed to the Southside’s historic Choo Choo Hotel Property. This corner lot behind Main Street was formerly the laundry service for the hotel. After viewing the location it became clear that much more was possible. The idea for an urban-centered, safe, clean space for dogs to play and dog-lovers to gather began to develop.

Play Wash Pint’s mission would be to provide a safe, healthy, and happy place for dogs and their humans to play together. We believe that most dogs are animals that thrive with proper exercise and socialization, and that humans are at their best when with their pets.

The company has grown to encompass special events, local dog-focused philanthropy, a free-range, enrichment-heavy dog daycare, a customized membership software, expertly trained staff, and a wide selection of beers, ciders & seltzers. We hope to see you and your pup soon at the HAPPIEST PLACE ON TURF!
