20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

Welcome to Happy Pups of Grapevine!

Nancy and I are brand new to DogVacay.com and are so excited to open our home up to your pups. Nancy and I are avid dog lovers and have been for years. We are pet parents to Teddy our 2 year old poodle bichon boy. So we understand the importance of a happy, healthy, and loving home.

I am a full time Realtor and work from home many days. I do have appointments with clients so supervision will almost be 24/7. Nancy works for American Airlines. We love to travel and experience new cultures and culinary delights.

We have a big secure backyard with a doggy lounger, toys, and plenty of attention to give your special one.

We are very flexible and excited to provide the care, exercise, and most importantly love for all your doggies needs.

- Airport Drop-Off / Pick-Up (DFW)
- Baths
- Pick-up / Drop-off (Within 10 miles)

We are located in Grapevine and have easy DFW airport access (less than a 10 minute drive). Also right near the 121 and 360.

We are 10 minutes away from Southlake, Colleyville, Euless, Bedford, and DFW Airport.

Excellent job! The pups loved their stay and Nancy & Joel kept an open line of communication on the status of the dogs with lots of pics. Would definite utilize again and would recommend to anyone!
This was our first time using DogVacay and we're so happy that Joel and Nancy were part of our first experience. Our Max stayed with them for 2 nights and we received a message from Nancy concerned because he wasn't eating much. This is typical for Max when he's staying away from home, but it really meant a lot to us that Nancy was paying attention and wanted to make sure we knew how he was doing. We felt she was taking care of him as if he were her own dog. That's exactly what we were hoping for!
We had a last minute wedding to go to and they graciously offered to watch our dog for the night. their sweet dog got along with ours so well and they always sent us photos and videos for updates. Amazing people! We would definitely book again if we're in the area =)
I have known Joel and Nancy for some time and was really happy to see that they had started booking on DogVacay. My pup loves playing with theirs and I felt totally comfortable leaving him knowing that he would be so well taken care of. They have a really nice house and wonderful backyard that the doggies can enjoy. Thank you so much Nancy and Joel for taking such good care of my boy, I'm sure Teddy and Manny will be playing together many times in the future! I would highly recommend Nancy and Joel.
Lady had a good time with Teddie and his humans! The videos and pictures that Nancy and Joel sent helped me know Lady was doing well. Thank you!
Absolutely wonderful daycare experience with Joel and Nancy. We were in town for a couple of days and needed a doggy daycare on fairly short notice, especially during the holiday season, and Joel and Nancy stepped up. Our pups are very skittish about new people and new dogs, and Joel made them feel right at home. He knew exactly how to introduce them into the pack. He sent us pictures throughout the day. Joel and Nancy answered emails and texts promptly. I will definitely be calling them when we are back in town. Thanks so much!!
Joel and Nancy came highly recommended and I will definitely be a repeat customer. Fatso and Lil'bit loved their vacay! Thank you for a great stay
We had the best experience with Joel and Nancy! They were very considerate of our time, our pet's needs, and how we felt about leaving our dog for the first time.

They thoughtfully asked to have a meetup for our dog at their home, and were very quick to answer any questions or concerns we had. They emailed and texted videos and pictures of our dog while we were gone, and it was very reassuring to see how he was doing.

We will definitely recommend Joel and Nancy to our friends, and plan on using them in the future! Great experience!
Cooper had a fantastic time with Nancy and Joel. They have a wonderful house with a huge backyard. Nancy sent great pictures and updates and I know Cooper had a great time with the other dogs because he is tired and happy. Thanks Nancy for loving on my dog and making your place like his second home. ??
Last minute reservation! Willing and able to take us. So happy we found them close to our home and the dogs were fine!
Joel and Nancy (and Teddy) are always wonderful hosts!

Joel and Nancy share lots of feedback and pics!

Their dog, Teddy, is sweet and calm and gets along wonderfully with my dog.

I always feel comfortable leaving my dog with them. I know he is in a warm, safe, loving environment.

Thanks Joel, Nancy and Teddy!
Joel and Nancy were so accommodating and flexible. They saved the day when I made a last-minute reservation for my 3 dogs. I felt really comfortable leaving my babies with them, and will definitely use them again if I am ever in the area.
Thanks for your wonderful care of Ingie
Joel and Nancy were fantastic with my dogs. They sent several pictures each day which clearly showed that Louie and Dakota were doing just fine. I was happy that my dogs were not only very well taken care of, but that they had a new friend to play with! Having Louie and Dakota with Joel and Nancy meant that I had absolutely no worries about them while I was away.
Thank you Nancy and Joel for being so flexible and allowing Renner to stay another night due to our flight being late and the torrential rain storms! Renner will be back again!
Nancy and Joel were great! At the last minute I had a myriad of questions and concerns. Nancy answered all my questions and put me at ease.
They had a total of three dogs. One was their own, sweet, calm small dog named Teddy, one was my 9 year old boxer and the third was an older schnauzer. All the dogs were very mellow and calm! I liked that they limit the number of dogs they have at a time. And they will also set up meet and greets before hand if desired. They have their house set up with an ample amount of dog beds and blankets covering the couches so the dogs can make themselves at home there as well.
Their backyard is perfect for the dogs to go out explore and enjoy. They leave their back door open during the day so the dogs can wander in and out as desired.
They sent me lots of pictures and were wonderful about keeping in touch to let me know how things were going.
The best thing was that when our flight got delayed due to the crazy rain storms they were more than willing to keep our dog for another night!
Thank you for that!!
Nancy and Joel were great hosts! They were very accommodating with our meet n' greet request and answered any questions we had. Great communication and flexibility around pickup and dropoff and they sent us lots of great pictures while we were away. They, along with their super cute dog Teddy, they took great care of LK and we look forward to using them in the future.
Nancy was flexible on my last minute request and came through. She was great when I dropped off my dog and she had two other dogs there. The house looked like a great place for dogs with many different places to lay down and be comfortable. The back yard is spacious her dog ran around with mine a lot as hers was friendly. She sent pictures and kept me updated on the status of my dog. Great experience and I will use them again!
Joel and Nancy were absolutely amazing and super friendly with constant reliable communication. The house was set up perfectly and the yard gave the dogs lots of room to play. They sent us lots of pictures and updates throughout Athena's stay. I felt confident leaving Athena in their hands from the start and she received the attention she needed. I would recommend them to anyone and will surely go to the again.
I booked with Joel and Nancy last minute and they were more than helpful! Banjo was thoroughly tired from running around with their own dogs and I could tell he enjoyed his stay. I will look forward to using them again in the future.
Joel and Nancy, once again, you are amazing! This was Milo's second visit with his new best friend Teddy and as expected he had a great time! We really appreciate all of the extra effort you guys are willing to put into it to make us feel at ease on our time away from Milo. We will be coming back, and will be highly recommending you guys to our friends. Thank you both!
Joel and Nancy are wonderful! If it were possible to give them 10 stars, I absolutely would!

I have 3 dogs (with 3 VERY different personalities) and they were able to accommodate all three. The pups came home happy, and well cared for. The daily picture updates were appreciated, and I could tell they had received all of the treats and love they would have received at home. I loved how completely dog friendly their house was, and appreciated that my spoiled pups were allowed on the couch and had free reign of their huge back yard (pool included!).

Joel and Nancy made my vacation stress free. I was flying out of DFW for a trip, and they were super flexible with pick up and drop off (which was fantastic because we all know air travel can have unexpected delays). And they are only a few minutes away from DFW which was super convenient.

I HIGHLY recommend them to any pup parent in the DFW area and I will definitely be using them again in the future :)
Gordy seemed to enjoy his stay with Joel and Nancy. They took a last-minute reservation and even squeezed in a meet-n-greet before we dropped Gordy off to stay with them. This host family is great at communicating and sending picture updates. I think they spoiled him as much as we do! We will book with this family again without hesitation.
Joel and Nancy were able to watch Ava for me on very short notice. They were excellent with her. Ava loved Teddy and when I picked her up, she was nothing but smiles! I highly recommend them and will use them again in the future!
We could not have expected more from Joel and Nancy! They were awesome! Milo stayed with them and Teddy for 3 days and from day one we received pictures of Milo. He had so much fun with Teddy! He was treated so well that we were afraid he wouldn't want to come home! Thank you both for loving Milo as your own! We will be back!
