About Us

Our Story

Pawdentity is an extension of Nashville K9, LLC. Through the years we have tried many different dog boarding solutions for tracking and managing our back of house operations. Now, in 2022 we are launching the best solution for us and we know it will be the best one for you as well.

Pawdentity grew out of the needs of it’s parent company, Nashville K9. We searched and used many different solutions but never found one that met our needs. We know many companies use Excel spreadsheets and shared google calendars to try and keep track of everything that is happening. This is why we built Pawdentity. We wanted a way to see all the various aspects of our company in a single location where we could get both a high level view of what was happening as well as detailed views into each section of our business.

At the end of the day you want something that is easy to use and displays the data that is most important to you without having to click lots of links or run lots of reports. We have custom widgets that will allow you to customize a dashboard for each of your team members. We thought through each page of the software to ensure ease of use and timing to ensure you aren’t wasting time finding what you need. As we like to say “let us do what we do best so you can get back to doing what you do best.” Let us handle your daily operations and notify you when something needs your attention so that you can focus on what you do best…running your business.

You’ll be able to see the progress of dog training as well as know which employee handled dogs on each day. With the data collected you’ll be able to run reports and see where your clients are coming from using our heat maps. You’ll be able to see what kinds of breeds you have most, and how they are training so that you can serve your customers even better.
