Just in case newbies like my self are stressing out about pet care I thought I would post this update.........
I contacted Pappy's (a referral from TXPrincess) while my husband was in Dallas doing our walk final home walk through. He was able to check it out and gave it the thumbs up. I spoke to a VERY nice girl (who got a A+ in customer service) on the phone to make our final boarding arrangements. They have a good web site if you type in Pappy's Pet Lodge. Thanks TXPrincess for the referral.

I've been using Pet Paradise Resort in Melissa, just north of McKinney. The owners live on the premises and my dogs get their own little room with a doggie door to the ouside and they are given attention regularly throughout the day.

I just boarded one of my dogs for 10 days right over the Mansfield city limits line in Arlington. It's on Cooper Street and is called Country Acres Kennels. It has been there for over 30 years and has places for over 300 animals.

It's quite nice, and I would recommend it for your little friend. My dog didn't adjust too well to it as she hates noises and of course, a lot of barking was going on. Also during the time I was gone, thunderstorms were everywhere and the poor little thing is petrified of them. She stayed in the dog house most of the time that was located inside of her run. The workers there had a hard time coaxing her out of her kennel for play time. They were very good to her though.

Check it out. It's on the web. The cost is extremely reasonable, only $10 a day for my 53 pound hound. The costs vary with the size of the dog.

Whoops! I just saw your post about making the final arrangments Pappy's. Well, I'll leave this post here anyway; someone else may need a recommendation.

Default Tooth Acres is supposed to be great.

Tooth Acres in Plano is supposed to be really good. We toured many facilities a few years ago and Tooth Acres stood out as being the best. We have not used them as we spoil ours by having someone stay at the house, but if in a bind this is who we would use.

We've had good experiences with K9 University in Plano and North Garland. They offer boarding, grooming, and training. If you're going on an extended vacation for 2 weeks, you can have them train your dogs while you're gone. You have to go for follow-up lessons every weekend, but it's great.

OMG I just realized months later my mistake it's CROSS TIMBERS not Crossroads. Sorry I just found out magnet and his vet stuff.

You do not need to send poor Charlie away! You can use a pet sitting service. I have been using Guardian Pet Sitters for years and they are the best. They are bonded and insured. There is always a back up sitter in case yours gets sick. My sitters have both been serious animal lovers, the kind you want to take care of your pet. They have a website. Check 'em out.

What about Dee's Doggie Den? Anyone take their dog there? Dee's Doggie Den - Daycare, Boarding and Grooming for Dogs in Dallas

We're also moving to Dallas and trying to find a really great doggie daycare for our four legged child! We'll be living close to the M Streets - and it's close by there and has a great website. I've also talked with the owner and she sounds very nice, but if you have any other suggestions and/or experiences at Dee's, please do tell!
