“Dog hair is my favorite accessory 🐾 !”

I have been the go to pet sitter/walker for the last 7 years for several physicians in the area. I’ve never met a pup that I didn’t love! I’m very loyal, honest, caring, and treat all the babies that I care for as if they are my own. What could be better for an animal lover than to have the opportunity to spend time with animals, and create a fruitful income doing it?!

Dog Boarding in Dallas

In a “pawfect” world, you’d be able to take your pup with you every time you go away on vacation. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible, so you’ll need to find somewhere safe, comfortable, and affordable for your dog to stay while you’re away.

The good news is that you don’t have to pack your pup off to the unfamiliar and intimidating environment of a boarding kennel. Instead, why not find a trusted pet caregiver with Wag! who offers in-home Dallas dog boarding?

This means your dog is cared for in a loving home environment — either your home or the pet sitter’s. And if you’re happy for them to do so, these local dog boarders in Dallas can also treat your pooch to an outdoor adventure. For example, your pup might like to explore the 13 wonderful trails in Cedar Ridge Preserve, or take a stroll around the Glendale Park Loop Trail.

What could possibly be cuter than a dog in an adorable Halloween costume? How about hundreds of dogs in Halloween costumes? Better yet, what if they were all Pugs? That’s the basic premise of Pug-O-Ween, the annual fundraiser for DFW Pug Rescue. Held at the Grapevine Convention Center in the lead-up to Halloween each year, this fun family event sees hundreds of Pugs parade around in their scariest, most hair-raising costumes. Throw in a silent auction, bake sale, costume competitions, and food vendors, and it quickly becomes clear that the Pug life has its perks! Best of all, this Pug-tacular fun is for a very worthy cause, with all proceeds used to help prepare Pugs for adoption. Add this Fido-friendly fundraiser to your calendar and make your next Howl-o-ween one to remember.
