“I have been taking my dog, Pepper to LiL Paws Inn for about 3 years now and he LOVES it!! He gets very excited as we are pulling into the driveway and he runs to the front door every time. Diana and her husband are fabulous and treat Pepper like he was their own. He gets to run and play or if he just wants to relax sleeps on the sofa. Whenever I travel I know that I am leaving him in the hands of very capable and friendly dog lovers.” ~Lucy D. Ithaca NY
“LiL Paws Inn is a wonderful place! Our pit bull mix, Lani, loves playing with her friends and being spoiled by Diana and her family. It’s also great when Diana texts videos and pictures of Lani playing and romping around. It makes my day to see her happy and safe! I would highly recommend LiL Paws Inn to my friends and family. Diana and Rich are always so helpful and friendly. They work really hard to keep the environment very clean and safe. Thank you LiL Paws Inn!” ~Sandy of Ithaca, NY
We found this gem 3 years ago when we moved to Ithaca from NYC and got our first dog Jasper. Once we added a second dog (Sally) who is a Catahoula Leopard that requires a lot of exercise, we appreciated LiL Paws Inn more than ever. We use the Inn for boarding pretty consistently since our job requires a lot of traveling. We have recommended them to friends to use them when they travel to board their dogs. The prices are extremely reasonable (NYC charges twice as much for one day’s visit) and the family is great with the animals. Don’t look any further – I have checked many out and they can’t beat LiL. ~Amy, NYC.
“I just wanted to say that LiL Paws Inn is really a GREAT place to have your dog take a little vacation from their (parents). My wife’s first dog Sal would get very excited to go to LiL Paws Inn before we had to put him down at 15 years old. Our new puppy has A LOT more energy which she burns off at LiL Paws Inn. As always we hate to leave her anywhere but we know she is in GREAT hands when we’re gone.” ~Mike and Joanne of Lansing, NY
“I looked for a long time trying to find a place that I could trust with my Golden Retriever Ginger to board her while I travel. Ginger has alot of energy and because of that can be a bit high maintenance. I am a very cautious doggy mom who had a lot of concerns about the safety of my dog. At first Ginger was nervous but after her 2nd or 3rd visit, she was soooo excited to go there. I trust them with her and the other dogs there and feel so secure while she is there. So many boarding facilities have a ton of dogs and don’t do a good job watching them. Not the case here. Diana is wonderful!!! Thank you! Ginger loves you guys!” ~C. Johnson, Dryden NY
“You can enjoy your vacation knowing your dog is in good care with Diana. Daisy and Jo were truly a part of her family and I especially loved that she took the time to send videos and pictures throughout the week keeping our minds at ease. I know whenever I need to go out of town that my dogs are in the best possible care!” ~Sarah, Interlaken NY
