Paws & Pals Pet Resort is an all suites, full-service pet resort located in Prior Lake Minnesota and convenient to guests in Savage, Lakeville, Shakopee and the surrounding south Twin Cities metro areas. Our caring, certified and professionally trained staff treats your pet with love and attention, from supervising playgroups to tucking in your dog at night in his or her own spacious private suite. Your dog will have lots of fun and be safe and comfortable in our totally cage-free environment.

Paws & Pals has been providing the highest quality dog boarding, doggie daycare, dog grooming, and dog training since 2005. Paws & Pals has had more than 5,000 dogs stay, play, get groomed or trained with us. Above all, we provide owners with peace-of-mind knowing that their beloved pet will receive the industry-leading care at a reasonable price.

Based on direct feedback, existing customers are loyal to Paws & Pals because we have excellent staff, take extra special care of our “guests”, and have a very clean facility. Customers trust us and know that their pet is in “good hands”. In our most recent annual survey, 93% of our customers said they would recommend us to a friend or family member. They love to watch their dog on our web cams while they’re at work, on vacation or anywhere in the world! We encourage you to take a tour of our modern and roomy indoor/outdoor resort and see the beautiful surroundings your pet will enjoy.

From the founders:

We’ve always considered Daisy, our long-haired dachshund, as our fur baby. When we traveled, we just didn’t feel comfortable leaving her at a traditional kennel. We always felt a little guilty asking our friends or family to take her. We talked to lots of people that were in the same boat as us. I guess you could say that Daisy was a big part of the inspiration behind starting Paws & Pals Pet Resort.
Tasha Gastony
With Daisy as our guide, we planned Paws & Pals for over a year. We toured some of the best facilities in the country including visits to Denver, Portland and St. Louis. We also attended several ABKA seminars to learn about the industry’s best practices. We gained very valuable information from owners that have been in the industry for many years.
