Dog Boarding

comfortable dog boarding suites prior lake mn

Dogs enjoy private spaces in a comfy bed.

Our beautiful private suites are a modern day approach to traditional pet boarding. Each clean, comfortable and climate controlled unit is spacious enough to easily accommodate the biggest breeds or multiple dogs. Large glass fronts offer every guest an excellent view. Your dog will also enjoy the quiet privacy realized while lounging on a comfy bed.

We offer a great value as every stay includes at least 5 to 6 hours per day of fun group play or activity time supervised by our caring and professional staff. Furthermore, we do not charge extra for personalized care, special feedings or administering medications.

For boarding, we charge by the night like a hotel. You can check in or out any time that our lobby is open. We offer a generous standard checkout time of 2:00pm. We also offer the convenience and savings of being open on Sundays and most major holidays – no extra nights required! Paws and Pals Pet Resort offers dog boarding convenient to Prior Lake, Savage, Lakeville and Shakopee, and the surrounding south Twin Cities metro area. Many of our loyal customers will drive as far as one hour each way because they trust us to provide the best possible care for their pet.

New Boarding Customers: The first step in getting started is to schedule an Evaluation Day. Evaluation Day is a free four-hour period where you drop off your dog to be slowly introduced to our facility, staff and some doggie friends. We typically host Evaluation Days at certain times on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. To schedule an Evaluation, email or call us at 952-447-3644. If your dog passes the evaluation, we will then schedule your reservation.


Looking for the Boarding Webcam? Playtimes: 7am-9am, 12pm-2pm, and 6pm-7:15pm
Times may vary based on number of dogs and weather conditions.


Customer Comments about Dog Boarding:

The facility at Paws & Pals is very unique. We like the spacious kennels with a window for viewing the pets, open air feel to the building, and the phenomenal staff.
Carrie and Tom Radue, for Molly a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, customers since 2005
We’ve had our dogs at several pet resorts over the years and none come close to delivering the experience we’ve had with Paws and Pals! The staff is very friendly and professional and the facilities are spotless. The kennels are spacious and the outdoor area where the dogs interact and play is a great setup. Our dogs get very excited when we pull into the parking lot at Paws and Pals to drop them off – that pretty much says it all!
