Place to pamper your pooch:

Paws Inn

The next time you take a vacation, you can send your best furry friend on a little holiday, too. While you unwind on a beach somewhere, your dog can relax in a luxury suite at Paws Inn, S92 W19918 Herneberry Dr.,  Muskego.

Ken and Sandy Peterson came up with this unique approach to boarding dogs in 1999.

“We are both cancer survivors and we decided life was too short not to do something we really wanted to do,” says Sandy, who has a background in grooming and breeding dogs.

“My husband likes to call us the Ritz Carlton of the animal world,” she says. Clients can board their dogs in luxury suites that contain doggie futons, televisions and soothing colors. Of course, the regular accommodations are also nicely appointed. Dogs are exercised regularly.

“We have always loved animals and we think it shows in the way we treat our customers,” Peterson says.
