Any suggestions for boarding in BEAUMONT, TX?

I will not board Rocky at any kennel without a personal recommendation (Which I count all of you as ) ever again.

When I picked him up from the last kennel he had learned a new behavior - whimpering and cowering down if I or any one around so much as lifted my/their hand to grab something. AND came home with bloody scratches on him. They had no idea why either of the issues occurred. :/

Anyways, I am supposed to be going to visit my grandmother and my boyfriend's grandparents this weekend but if I am unable to find a kennel that I can trust, I will be staying home until I can do further research.

I am an overly concerned "mother" and I know it. Just can't deal with anything else happening to my mess up my boy's nerves when he has progressed so much.

Do you like your vet? Call and see if they offer boarding.

If she doesn't reply to this, shoot a PM to Ladylaw. I believe she's in Beaumont.

You may want to consider a professional (bonded/insured) pet sitter(?)

I never thought about the pet sitter....I won't go to the vet any more, it is the cheapest but they stay in kennels and only get walked once a day. I like him to be able to stay in a run and move around.

I second contacting Renee (ladylaw) or a petsitter that will stay in your home , if your comfortable with that. I think that situation is so much better for the dog, stress free, he's in his own house

We use a petsitter and it's awesome. He's a friend of the family who comes and stays in our home, sleeps in the guest room, feeds and exercises and plays with the dogs on their regular schedule. MUCH less stressful on the dogs.

I am in Beaumont. I have a friend with a boarding kennel and my vet also has an awesome facility for boarding. I board my dogs there and nobody is as picky as I am....... both are indoor,climate controlled with runs
dogs will have to be current on vacs

Petsitters maybe be more pricey then a kennel if you have just one pet but can be very economical for those with more then one pet in comparison.

This is a good place to start looking for/researching pet sitters. It has a petsitter locator function, input your zip code and it will pull a list for you.

Pet Sitters International - The World's Largest Educational Association for Professional Pet Sitters

Make sure to do your due diligence, check references, verify insurance and such......
