Lucky Paws, a doggie daycare and boarding facility, is opening at 43-11 Crescent Street next week.
The facility is owned and operated by Olivia Kaczmarek and her uncle Jay Iwanczuk who have been offering dog walking services until now. This will be their first physical location.
Kaczmarek said that residents will be able to drop off their dog for daycare in the morning and pick it up any time before 7 pm for $25.
Lucky Paws will also pick up a dog at the owner’s home and/or drop it off at night for $5 extra.
The dogs will get to interact with other dogs at the daycare facility and will get to play with plenty of toys, Kaczmarek said. There is playhouse and a slide, along with a TV that will be playing Disney movies.
“Dogs love to go down the slide,” Kaczmarek said.
She said the dogs will also be walked throughout the day.
For boarding, dog owners will have the option of having their dog stay overnight in a “residential suite,” which is a small private room, or in a play room with other dogs.
“Most dogs tend to be in the play room running around,” she said.
Lucky Paws is located in a two story building. Upstairs is an apartment, where a worker will stay overnight to keep an eye on the dogs.
“The dogs are always being looked after,” Kaczmarek said. “If a dog needs to go out in the middle of the night, it can be taken out.”
Lucky Paws will also providing boarding for cats, rabbits, and pretty much any pet.
