I (and my whole family) have been blessed with fantastic pets my whole life. I’ve helped deliver pups and kitties, and taken care of them very well. I’ve watched pets for family and friends, and decided to branch out, and watch other people’s pets. I’m trustworthy, and animals tend to love me! Give me a chance to earn your trust, and let me work for you!

Every dog is a little bit different and I ove that. I will help you to be the pack leader that your dog needs in his life. It's more about training the human and the dog will follow. The variety to work with many different personalities and breads. I grew up with 15 German shepherds on my grandfather's farm. It was an amazing experience and it help me to understand dogs and their behavior. Ceaser Milan and a handful of other dog behaviorists helped me to understand the quick way of getting great results....

Rex M. says, "I had to leave town for a 2 week vacation and left my 1.5 year old Papillon with Paws in Motion. I met with Dulce and her daughter the weekend before leaving town to see her home where she boards and grooms and see if it seems like a good fit for my dog. She was very welcoming and nice and showed me around the house where she will be allowing the dogs. The best thing about her services is that she does not kennel the dogs into crates. My dog had his own doggie bed, but she let me know once I was on my trip that my dog ended up just sleeping in her bed with her as he does with me at my home. She even has cameras in her home that you can access via an app to check up on your doggie playing with the other dogs in her home. She regularly texted pics and short videos of her walking the dogs and of my dog playing and sleeping with updates on how he was getting along. This was a very positive experience and greatly relieved any worries while I was out of the country for 2 weeks, knowing that my dog was in the best of care. And upon picking him up at the end of my vacation, she even gave him a complimentary bath. I highly recommend her services for grooming and boarding." Read more

Your dog boarding questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

What is dog boarding?

It happens to the best of us—we have to go out of town or work on a big job and there’s no one to look after the dog. Thankfully, there are a fair number of dog boarding opportunities for your dog near your home. Dog boarding kennels provide your dog a safe and secure place to call their home away from home while you are away. Dog boarding is sometimes accompanied by other services, such as dog training and dog grooming.

How much does dog boarding cost?

Dog boarding costs $40 a night on average, depending on where you live, the size of your dog, and how long of a stay your pet needs. While the cost of boarding your dog may depend on a number of circumstances, most companies charge per day and/or night. Overall, you can expect the range to be between $25 and $85 each night.

What vaccinations do dogs need for boarding?

Dogs need proof of Distemper, Parvo and Bordetella (kennel cough) annually and Rabies every 1-3 years. Puppies must be 10 days past their final round of distemper/parvo vaccination before kennels will accept them for boarding. Vaccinations need to be given no less than 7 days prior to boarding. If this is the dog's first Bordetella vaccination, it must be given 2 weeks prior to boarding.

How old does a dog have to be for boarding?

For all breeds of dogs, most dog kennels require the dog to be at least 4 months old (12 to 16 weeks) old. This is because all certified kennels require incoming puppies to have had their first round of adult shots at 12 weeks, followed by the second round at around 16 weeks.

What do I need to take my dog to the kennel?

When preparing to take your dog to the kennel, remember to:

  1. Be up to date on their vaccinations. Vaccinations need to be given no less than 7 days prior to boarding.
  2. Pack plenty of your dog’s usual food for the length of their stay.
  3. Pack any medications or supplements that your dog may need.
  4. Pack your dog's leashes.
  5. Write a list of any special instructions you may have for your kennel regarding feeding times, portions for food, your local vet's phone number, and where you can be reached.
  6. Don't forget to pack your dog's favorite toys. An old t-shirt that smells like you can also make for a great cuddle toy!

What is the difference between dog sitting and boarding?

The difference between dog sitting and boarding is the length of stay and attention of care. Dog boarding is like a hotel, where it's typically an overnight stay at a kennel where your dog is around other dogs. On the other hand, a dog sitter will watch your pet at either their or your home, or they may just stop by to care for your pets two or three times per day.

While in-home dog care might feel uncomfortable to some because of giving a stranger access to your home, having someone stop by can be much less intimidating for the dog than having to stay in a crate or small room overnight with other dogs around. If you are one of those dog owners who would rather your dog be in his or her own home while you are out of town, you may want to check out local dog sitters near you.

How long before boarding does dog need a Bordetella shot?

In general, puppies can receive injectable Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines between 6 and 8 weeks of age and booster shots when they're 10 to 12 weeks old. Adult dogs generally need booster vaccines for Bordetella in intervals of six months to a year. If this is the dog's first Bordetella vaccination, it must be given 2 weeks prior to boarding.

Dulce clearly loves dogs and was very patient with my Golden Retriever Lacey, who was shaking the first time she came. When I came to pick her up, not only was she beautifully groomed, but Lacey was in love with her new friend and bouncing all over the yard! I am definitely going to be a return customer!
