Holiday Letter to Our Customers

I feel honored to help people that care deeply about their pets
and by guiding pets that love their people to live full and healthy lives.

I am pleased to introduce the new location of Paws for the Good Life!  We are now situated at 9570 Edinboro Rd., McKean, PA 16426 – right behind the McKean Veterinary Hospital. The convenience and added safety of this location is a real bonus for your best friend!

Please call me at 814-476-3003 to set up a personal tour for you and your pet!!

Our new home has been set up with specific needs for Doggie Day Camp, Overnight care (for felines as well!) and all the other services I provide.

  • Our indoor pet cottages provide homestyle boarding for dogs and cats. These are little bedroom suites as opposed to kennel runs. When bedding down for the night each pet can stay in one of our five newly decorated themed suites; The ORIENTAL PAGODA, The NAUTICAL BOATHOUSE, The COUNTRY COTTAGE, The PARISIAN SUITE or the SOUTH PACIFIC BUNGALOW.

  • A secure fenced outdoor play area is attached to the building. Our campers and boarders can easily be taken outside for social time, potty breaks, and on hot days to cool off in the kiddie pool.

  • We enjoy six acres of fenced meadow land. I believe that exercise is a key component for healthy and content dogs. While in the meadow with me dogs can choose the level of exercise - either an easy stroll or running like mad!! It is also a good time for practicing basic training for physical and
    mental well-being.

  • A room of its own for our feline boarders complete with roomy, secure enclosures. Your cat can have social time with people each day and free roam inside for exercise.

  • Our indoor livingroom/kitchen is another social area we utilize. The “couch potatoes” can actually lounge on the couch with friends – human or canine. Home cooked organic treats and meals are served and even tea time is provided for our best friends.

Please see our SERVICES page for a complete list of all services offered!!
