About Shannon

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Leaving on vacation or a business trip, Babcock Boardinghouse is for you!! We are a large family with even larger hearts, especially for fur babies. Our fur babies, Daisy and Diamond, are the heartbeat to our home. I work from home so dogs are supervised at all times and are allowed in and out to the backyard as much as they want. Dogs have access to all areas of our 4000 sq foot house and are welcome to sleep where they choose. Also dogs will be walked morning and evenings.

My husband & I have 5 children at home (21-14 years of age), all who have extensive experience with animals. We started this business as a family to help our two 14 year old daughters raise money for their missions trip to Guatemala this summer. All of our children have an entrepreneur spirit and a deep love for animals, especially dogs. Our overnight boarding services are for 24 hours with an additional four hour grace period for pick up. With all the dog lovers living in this house, you can be assured there is always someone to play with them. Our family would be honored for the privilege to love on your fur babies!!

Wow! Firecracker now has a home away from home! What a wonderful time he had on his recent Vacy with Host - Shannon B. I'm telling ya the little guy just grinned ear to tail. Shannon and her family took special care for my little Italian Greyhound - he is special needs as he didn;t get all his socialization. This is something that never goes away & I have worked with him now for a few years. (Think like a rescue dog) Shannon made him feel right at home. Wonderful, wonderful experience! Thank you very much!
Dogs were well cared for, my instructions were followed for feeding, and I got lots of cute pictures of my dogs playing and on walks.
I cannot express the relief and happiness I feel to have found Shannon and family as my little boy's home away from home! I knew as soon as I met them (on a 'meet and greet') that they were the ones Skye should stay with, as their home is warm, welcoming and most of all, loving!

My baby, Skye, stayed for a week over Thanksgiving holiday and when I returned, had a hard time leaving their home - he kept running upstairs to the daughter, back down to me, back up to the daughter -- in short, he loved his stay! I also feel that his visit provided him with some super good socialization, as he is an 'only dog' in a much smaller household at home. In fact, I will be booking him for day care with them when possible, because I truly value this broader, positive experience for him!

While I was away, Shannon kept me up to date with photos and videos, and answered my texts promptly (which were admittedly far too many - as I am not used to leaving my baby!!) I know that Skye is not the easiest puppy to take care of - a friend took care of him once, complained that he cried all night. Well, this family totally won him over, and did not have the same experience at all with him as my friend had had - because they loved him and he knew it - he was really happy in their household! This is a very special family, it is obvious that they love dogs because they are just wonderful with them - they are the dog whisperers of TX!
Thank you so much, Shannon and family!

Shannon and her family were excellent. Jax was loved and cared for in her home and almost didn't want to come back home. Will definitely use her for future stays to care for my pup. Thanks Shannon and your whole family.
Very happy with care given by Shannon and her family. They love spoiling your dog and giving them lots of attention. My dogs slept the entire next day after picking them up because of playing so hard.
Shannon and her family were awesome to Huey! They sent tons of pics and dropped him off when I got home. He was well loved and taken care of and always had company. I was nervous since they have 2 other dogs and how they would get along but it was not even an issue! They were so sweet and he loved their backyard and laying in the sun. Will definitely use them again! Made me feel better knowing he was having fun!!!
I loved the family they were amazing and sweet and worked with my schedule I would definitely use them again I just love them!!!
Shannon was great with my Jack Russell, he came back happier then when I left! Easily recommend and will be going back again soon
Shannon and family were incredibly warm and gracious. They gave my pups much love and attention, and sent me a bunch of pictures of their bonding experience! My dogs really connected with Shannon and her kids--so much so that I could tell they were sad to leave! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shannon to a friend, and I will definitely seek her out the next time I am in town.
