Heading out of town and need a safe place for your canine companion to stay? We have you covered!

At Paws & Pals Pet Resort, our beautiful private suites are a modern-day approach to traditional pet boarding. Each unit is clean, comfortable, and climate-controlled and has plenty of space to accommodate large breeds or multiple dogs from the same family. Instead of wire cages, we house dogs in suites with large glass fronts that provide excellent views. Your furry best friend will also get to enjoy a comfy bed and plenty of peace and quiet while staying with us.

We charge by the night just like a hotel, and you are free to check your dog in or out any time our lobby is open. Our standard checkout time is 2 pm. We are open on Sundays and some holidays (excluding the 4th of July, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day), and we do not charge extra for administering medications, special feedings, or personalized care. With all of the amazing amenities, it's no wonder so many south Twin Cities metro area residents choose us when they are in need of dog boarding in Prior Lake, Savage, Lakeville, and the surrounding areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What can I expect my dog to experience when he/she is introduced to a group of other dogs?
We will introduce your dog safely and slowly to a few dogs and then ultimately to an entire play group of like-sized dogs with similar temperaments. We will watch your dog closely to make sure they are displaying proper canine body language and not demonstrating any aggressive or destructive behaviors. We watch very carefully to make sure your dog is having a good time playing with the group. The first thing that will happen is almost every dog will want to “greet” your dog. They will circle each other while sniffing noses, necks, and bottoms, and then go about their day. This is a proper greeting in the canine world. Aggressive dogs will usually not react well to all the dogs sniffing them. Non-aggressive dogs will react to all that sniffing by being friendly or submissive. Oftentimes play bowing and/or a fun game of chase will occur. Over time, your dog will naturally gravitate to other dogs who have a similar play style.
