The GrandPAWS Place Difference

  • Family Owned – We are not a franchise. Our dog boarding customers from Buffalo, Monticello, and and the Twin Cities always say they love the family atmosphere of our dog boarding facility. Your dog is treated like a member of our family rather than a profit center like most chain dog care companies.
  • Careful Screening – All dogs coming to stay at GrandPAWS Place are carefully checked before staying for flea and tick infestations. We also require all dogs be immunized before staying at out dog day care, kennels or play areas. Dogs must also not have a history of aggressiveness or biting.
  • Transparency – We have an open door policy; nothing is hidden from view or hidden from customers. Stop by any time during our drop off hours, take a look around and see how our clean, friendly and happy our facilities and dogs are.

History of Maple Lake, MN

The area where Maple Lake stands was once home to the Chippewa Indians. When the 1855 treaty was revoked by the US government, settlers began flowing in. As early as the 1850s, people were already beginning to settle in the area. Most early settlers came to farm but in 1857 a guy by the name of CH Hackett surveyed a 200 plat and named it as “Geneva”. The severe depression of the same year resulted in a panic that led to the dissolution of the “city of Geneva” but the town site of Maple Lake instead was established in 1858. Many of the settlers to Maple Lake were Irish in origin. Incorporation was finally achieved in 1890.
