Great Danes were Delighted with Pets Are Inn

Al and Donna took excellent care of our “kids”. They went above and beyond when we had our Great Danes

Our Dogs Happy Place

Pets Are Inn has been our safe and happy place for our schnauzer through the years. They love our pets. Our baby always comes home well-cared for, with a little report from the host family, giving highlights of his stay. Highly Recommend!!

Love Pets Are Inn Found them on Nextdoor

We have used Pets Are Inn to care for our two dogs for 4 years now, and they are wonderful! We originally found them on a neighbor’s recommendation after one of our dogs was consistently sick and depressed after boarding, even at an open ranch type of facility. With Pets Are Inn, they get the comfort and care they would get at home, and undoubtedly some extra spoiling too! They start getting excited when we move their dog beds by the front door, because they know that means they’re going on vacation, LOL! The staff are always friendly and kind, flexible when our plans change at the last minute, and communicate to keep us informed about our pups. We love Pets Are Inn!

Simply the Best!

We have been using Pets are Inn for nearly four years and absolutely love everything about this service! They are organized, efficient, caring and fun! Our Maisie gets so excited when she sees us putting her “vacation” bag together and sits at the door waiting for her “limo” to arrive! I have no doubt that her host Grandma loves her unconditionally as she always provides a beautifully written account of her stay including exercise, play, meal time and sleep behavior. It is reassuring to know she is safe in a home environment and her routine remains consistent! Al, Donna and Alta are the best so look no further if you want the premier “ away from home” experience for your precious pet!

Pampered Poodle!

This was our first time as Pet are Inn customers. We normally take our mini poodle with us on road trips, but this time were travelling by air and she was not able to join us. We were thrilled with the loving care given to our very special and spoiled four legged, furry child. Our mini poodle was so pampered and well cared for! She came home happy and content! She had her own pick up and delivery van that was super convenient and stress free!
It is evident from every step of the way, beginning with the initial contact and meeting that Alan and Donna are thorough to make sure that our mini poodle would be placed in the best home. The pick up and delivery with Alta was super prompt and easy. And especially to our poodle’s home away from home, Sue that gave her the best of care! All was great, and we highly recommend Pet Are Inn as being professional, attentive, and most of all truly caring about the pets they serve!

Kudos to Pets Are Inn!

We just moved to Dallas and used Pets Are Inn for the first time. Our Gabby came home with the smoothest transition ever after a stay with her Pets Are Inn hostess! ***** from Gabby & us

There’s No Place Like Home… except Pets Are Inn

I don’t have any suggestions.  You all do an amazing job.  I really like how you place guests in the same home repeatedly.  Everyone gets comfortable with each other.  Its easier on the guest

We all have great vacations with Pets Are Inn

I had heard of Pets Are Inn and checked them out several times, but I just couldn’t get past not knowing where my precious fur child would be staying. We finally decided to investigate further..WOW!!! We met Donna and Al, loved them. I called and emailed the 20 references they gave me. Each and every reference called me back and sung praises of Donna and Al and the host families. Now we are clients for life – we feel good, Porsche loves her host family and is always happy to be picked up by the Pets Are Inn “Limo”. So glad we found them – and thank you to all the clients that took the time to give personal recommendations.

Pets Are Inn Are Absolutely The Best

This is the BEST in-home “resort” for our dog, Sandy.  She always looks forward to getting picked up when the van arrives.

Dogs enjoyed their “spa vacation”!

THANK YOU to Alta for taking care of our corgis.  It is such a relief to know that they are being taken care of and are not caged and afraid.  We enjoyed our trip, and the dogs enjoyed their “spa vacation”!

Thank you again, we are so thankful for y’all!

Provides a Sense of Comfort…

“My family has been using Pets Are Inn since I was in high school in the 80’s! Their service provides a sense of comfort that you are continuing to treat your pet like a family member even when you are on vacation. No kennels. Your pet is treated with respect and allowed to carry on their routine – such as free roam of a house, treats, walks, etc. Our Golden has no problem getting into the van to go to “Summer Camp” as we call it. Nothing but positive experiences. Love reading the host family’s notes when we get back.”

Love this Business!

“Love this Business! Had to leave town for a quick trip and couldn’t take our newly adopted dog with us. We didn’t want to leave her in a Kennel atmosphere. They pick up your pet and deliver to a host family that plays, walks & loves your pet while you are away. When you return they bring back your pet. My dog was so happy and I didn’t have to worry about her while away. Donna & Al are wonderful. Try it out, SO MUCH BETTER than a kennel and reasonably priced for the excellent service they provide. JC”

Our First Choice…

“we LOVE pets are inn and the service they provide for our wheaten terrier, june bug! we know she will be part of a family and well attended. she comes back to us relaxed and happy to see us, showing no signs of exhaustion or anxiety. we also enjoy reading her little report card telling us how she did while we were away. when we leave town, pets are inn is our first choice for our girl. we just wish it was a bit less expensive.”

Strongly Recommend…

“I only trust my dogs to pets are inn for boarding. I have two. They are happy to go and come back extremely happy. I know they are getting the best care available when I am away. I want my pets to have the most close to home experience while I’m gone and that is what I get with Pets Are Inn. Strongly recommend. Cannot say enough good things about them. Fabulous organization and fabulous owners.”

Expert Job…

“Did a weekend test-run to see how my pups would adjust to their first time away from home. They had such a great time with their critter-sitter, they’ll soon be going back for a week-long stay. It is wonderful to leave the details to Al & Donna, who do an expert job with their service. This is THE solution for us when travel prohibits the “kids” from coming along.”
