Louise McCullough & Peter King are father and daughter and have been around dogs their whole lives. The family has always had dogs, and when they moved to the US in 1991, one of the first things the family did was get a dog.
After finding local day care and boarding facilities to be unsatisfactory for Louise’s dog, Maebh, Louise & Peter decided to design and build the ultimate pet boarding experience. They knew it had to be a facility that dog owners felt comfortable leaving their dog for a day, a few nights or even weeks. Louise and Peter wanted to make sure their client’s felt that their dogs would be safe, secure, happy, and well taken care of. It also had to be a facility that could cater to the different needs of dogs. After extensive research, Louise and Peter worked closely with designers and contractors to ensure that Paws Chateau™ was built with the primary focus on the needs of the dogs. No two dogs are alike, and Paws provides a facility that takes that into consideration, catering to the needs of each dog.
Louise is a Certified Dog Trainer through the nationally recognized Animal Behavior College (ABCDT). She has been training dogs for many years and volunteers with local rescues training and rehabilitating dogs to find their forever homes. She brings 20 years of Corporate Business Experience from the IT Industry to Paws Chateau. Approximately six years ago she needed to board her dog, Maebh, as she traveled a lot for work. After visiting all the available facilities, she didn’t feel comfortable leaving Maebh at any of them. She started researching the dog boarding industry. She went to educational seminars, conferences, seminars and trainings and decided to build a state of the art facility with all the features and amenities that she would want for Maebh.
Peter has been an Entrepreneur most of his life. He started and built successful businesses in Ireland. Since coming to the US he has successfully worked in sales, customer service and management. He loves the challenge of a startup business and enjoys the ups and downs that come along with it. When Louise told him about the idea she had for a Hotel and Resort for dogs he knew immediately that he wanted to be a part of it. The experience he has in building businesses from the ground up plus the added bonus of working with dogs was an opportunity he couldn’t pass up.

Hi there my name is Stephanie and I started at Paws in October 2016. I’m a Day Camp Counselor and I’m responsible for taking care of the dogs and keeping them safe. Since I was a kid I’ve always had a big heart for helping hurt animals and lost dogs and I still do. I grew up dog sitting for my neighbors back on the East Coast. I have a dog named Oliver he’s a Shih Tzu who I love very much! I’m hoping this experience will expand my knowledge and my skills to develop into a career. I am planning on getting Certified in Animal Caretaking that will allow me to have a career with animals. Besides being an animal lover I love nature/outdoor activities, singing, and volunteer work. I look forward on meeting your fur friends.
