Traci Pécot, owner of Paws and Paw Paws, and Paws MidCity, joins Discover Lafayette to share her love for all things related to dogs.

Paws and Paw Paws is a dog daycare that opened in 2017 with a mission to combine Traci’s passion for dogs with her love for members of our senior community. Traci brings her work history in healthcare with assisted living, home care, Alzheimer’s and dementia patients to her role in providing top-notch boarding and grooming facilities here in Lafayette.

There are two locations of Paws and Paw Paws: 930 Robley Drive and 111 South College Road, in Lafayette. They offer boarding, daycare and grooming services.

Paws and Paw Paws is a place where staff remain for the long haul and are treated with respect. Traci still works each day alongside her staff, taking a shift just as everyone else does. She is also responsible for all social media and web inquiries…and not only for Paws and Paw Paws, but also those of her husband, Ryan’s, businesses, Adopted Dog Brewing and Tchoup’s MidCity Smoke House.

Paws and Paw Paws’ cuddle buddy program offers seniors and the retired community the opportunity to spend time with dogs during the week in a rich, stimulating environment. Seniors sign up to lend their time and love to the precious dogs who need love as much as they do in their day-to-day lives.

Traci and her husband, Ryan, own two rescues, Tchoupitoulas and Paws, who remind them daily why they love dogs! And their dogs have played a role in inspiring other businesses, including Adopted Dog Brewing and Tchoup’s MidCity Smoke House.

Traci works to ensure that each dog cared for by Paws and Paw Paws is given the proper stimulation and exposure to other dogs that fits its temperament. Love and care for each pet is of uppermost importance and as you listen to Traci, you will hear this concern in her voice that each dog receive the treatment in the setting it is most comfortable in. Traci loves dogs and dogs love her back!
