Feb. 5, 2019 – Grafton, WI – A celebration in Grafton as Charming Paws has opened a second location.
Owner Ashley Skinkis has been in the dog daycare business since March 2017. After opening her first outlet in West Bend, 1410 Lang Street, Skinkis knew there was more opportunity ahead.
“We are leasing space at Twin City Plaza in the Village of Grafton,” said Skinkis. “We know there’s a demand in Grafton but nothing was available. We’re a perfect fit.”
The new shop, 1754 Wisconsin Avenue, in Grafton is located in the former Ace Hardware store. The dog hotel, daycare and grooming shop features many of the personal amenities offered in West Bend.
“Our landlord Barb is a great partner for us,” Skinkis said. “She really cares about the dogs and she’s making sure we have nothing but the best to offer our customers.”
The new Grafton shop includes over 5,000 square feet and an outdoor dog play area.
“We can accomodate 20 dogs but we’re looking to grow,” said Skinkis.
Courtney Weibye of Allenton helps run Charming Paws in Grafton. “People like it that this is so clean and how our doggy daycare is included in boarding,” she said.
“We don’t have a ton of extra charges,” Skinkis said. “If you want peanut butter inside a dog toy we just do it. We are here for the care of the dogs and not a lot of up charging.”
The crew at Charming Paws goes out of its way to accommodate its customers. “I wanted a place that values relationships and we’re that place for your dog,” said Skinkis. “People can trust who is watching their dogs.”
Charming Paws in Grafton also features a cozy dog-grooming room and 11 personal dog suites for overnight care. “There are cameras in all the suites to monitor them and we come back at 11 p.m. to let the dogs out for the night before returning at 5 a.m.,” said Skinkis.
