This is the part of moving that stinks....finding new everything! I need to locate good and reliable pet care while we are on vacation in July. I am willing to drive for great service. Charlie has only been with us about 8 months--this will be his first time parting from the family. He is a 22 lb. terrier mix with no special needs. Thanks in advance guys!

Several of my friends use Pappy's Pet Lodge.
3 locations in the Plano area. Pappy's Pet Lodge & Spa: Dog, Cat, Pet Boarding,Grooming, Day Care, for Dallas, Plano, Richardson, McKinney, Allen, Frisco

I have a friend in Mckinney who is a pilot and they board at a facility off of Custer regularly. If that location is better I can find out the name.

I would recommend Guardian Pet Sitters. They provide in-home care. It might seem expensive, but they are worth it. We use them for our cats and love it. The best part is they take in your mail, water plants, etc....what ever you want. Google them and give them a call for a quote!

We've boarded at our former vet (we moved to Georgia but are coming back) at Crossroads in McKinney; but, I would rather have an in-home for our dog as he's more comfortable here.

We have boarded our cats at Crossroads too. We did this while we were moving from Florida. They were really nice and took good care of the cats.

I've heard the place on 544 in the Carrollton-Plano section is pretty good. It is located just west of Josey and east of Old Denton if my memory serves me correct. Sorry I don't have a name.

Perhaps it's just me, but I don't see the need to board our cats. We have a long term food and water feeders that will last a week. I change the litter before I leave and when I return, but they're pretty much self sufficient otherwise. Now if we were going to be gone longer, I'd just offer a local teenager that I trusted $20 to stop by every fourth or fifth day to top off the food and water and to check in on them.
