About Chentel

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
-I offer Daycare!
My home is a doggy heaven....wood floors, 1200 sq. ft., 9 foot thick sturdy fence with no possible way to get out, big green fun back yard, nice neighborhood for walks, there are parks nearby and 10 minutes away from White Rock Lake. Our house is clean and safe for any dog. Our front window is the same width and height as the wall from ceiling to floor and is good for curious pups who like to watch outside. I'm home all day so your baby will have constant 24/7 love and supervision. I have 3 pugs that love to lay around all day but also love to play, they are all non-aggressive dogs. Whatever type of dog yours is I will accomodate: walks, runs, trips in the car, parks, tug of war, fetch, lounging, etc. I have had a dog my whole life and even as a child was the one to take care of them. I have also worked for a Pet Sitting company for 2 years. In my group of friends I am the go to gal when it comes to their pet needing a place to stay while they vacay, even their friends and family ask me to. One thing all my pet mommy and daddys say is that they know for sure that their doggy will be loved and taken care for as good as they would. I love doggy kisses and hugs....the more the merrier!!! I also give call, text, email, skype & pics if you would like!
*I also have Doggy Daycare services!
*I prefer guests be spayed/neutered!
****GUEST DOGS NEED TO HAVE HAD THEIR BORDATELLA SHOTS IN BETWEEN 2 WEEKS AND 6 MONTHS DURING THEIR STAY!!!

Rufus had a great time with Chentel. She sent pictures and updates daily. I highly recommend her.
Buddy always loves his time with Chentel!
We enjoyed our vacation knowing Buddy was well taken care of & having fun.
Buddy loves his day out to play with friends and we are happy he has a great place to go for the day.
Buddy's visits are always awesome - Host is great!
Had never used an at home pet sitting service like this before so was a little unsure before we met up with Chentel for the first time but she completely put us at ease and we had such a wonderful experience. Cannot say enough good things - so highly recommended!! We felt so comfortable leaving our dogs with her and were happy to get the picture updates while we were out of town. We will absolutely be repeat customers.

Chentel does an amazing job!
Wonderful hostess as always. Chentel always remembers meds and treats the pups as her own. We really appreciate the security and confidence we feel when we leave Lucy in her care.
Chentel is awesome! Never a worry when she takes care of our Ranger.
Lucy's socialization has benefited from her stays with Chentel. Thanks
Sidney had a great time with Chentel and is looking forward to another stay
Another tail-wagging good time with Chentel and the pugs! Thanks again!
Wow! We are very finicky pet owners and even more finicky when it comes to deciding where to leave them if we have to. Chentel and her home was a 'spot on' decision to leave our Steve. He had full roam of the house and was not stressed in the least when we arrived and when we picked him up. What a relief! We were able to text freely and even got a pic of Steve in his 'hotel'. Will definitely use Chentel again!

Gus absolutely LOVES Chentels doggie daycare! He is always so pooped when he gets home. He enjoys all the attention and has fun playing with all the other dogs. We love the daily updates and the peace of mind that he is being well taken care of.
Chentel was so easy to work with and quick to respond. I loved the daily text photos of Lola having fun. Lola had a fantastic time, and came home exhausted from all of the play and fun... Great home, with plenty of room and lots of love - a puppy paradise! Thank you Chentel for taking such sweet care of Lola, I know you'll be our first choice for future needs.

Lucy had so much fun
We love Chentel
Chentel did a great job and Azriel seemed to really enjoy her time away from home. A great service and a great person to stay with. :)
As always our two pups enjoyed their stay and their Mom was updated daily with pictures and texts, reassuring their health and well being.
Lucy had a great time playing with her doggy pals at Chentels
Great day, love getting pictures of Lucy's stay
Just needed to drop Lucy off for a few hours, it was great to have Chentel available
Good times with Chentel
Lucy stayed two nights and had a great time
Lucy loves staying with Chentel and has a great time
Lucy is always happy to be dropped off with Chentel
Chentel is wonderful! Penny seemed happy and very well taken care of. Chentel sent us pictures everyday and she truly seems to care genuinely for all the dogs under her care. we will definitely use her again!
We love Chentel, she's the best
Lucy loves staying with chentel
Always a good time when staying with Chentel
Lucy had a great time as usual. I always know she;s in good hands.
Lucy always has a good time and is in great hands with Chentel
Lucy had another great day with ""Aunt Chentel" I cant say enough great things about the care Lucy gets.
Lucy and Chentel are very taken with each other. Lucy has plenty of fun on her sleepovers and lots of attention. She's a happy girl when I pick her up.
I had about a one hour meet and greet with Chentel and she showed how much she cares about her guests. Lucy was introduced to Chentel's dogs and a couple of day boarders and everyone got along great. Its always nerve-racking to leave your pet with a stranger, but Chentel's vibe put me at ease.
I dropped Lucy off the next morning, Chentel sent me a picture around noon and I rested easy knowing Lucy was in good hands. Lucy was excited to come home, but I hope she can become a regular at Chentel's.

Budee is always so happy when we pick him up from Chentel's house. She is so good with him and I know he's in a good & loving environment.
Mavery had a great time with Chentel! She was so sad when she had to leave. We will definitely be using Chentel again and were very happy with the stay!
Max and Min had another great stay with Chentel and the pugs. I had a better trip knowing they were being taken good care of.
Chentel was great! She made Larry feel right at home and sent daily updates/pics! Would definitely recommend her!
Chentel was great! We could tell our pups enjoyed their stay.
Stella had a great time spending Thanksgiving with Chantel and her family. Chantel was great about communicating and keeping us updated on Stella and her stay. We look forward to having Stella stay with Chantel again.
We were so happy to find someone like Chentel who treated our dog Budee as one of her own. She was very affectionate and caring to him and provided a great play environment for him. We received daily photos of Budee playing with his new friends and that enabled us to enjoy our time away as well. We will definitely schedule more visits for Budee.

Even though it was only an overnight stay this time, my little guy had an awesome time with Chentel and the pugs. In fact, he seemed a little reluctant to go home when I came and picked him up less than 24 hours after drop off. This was a last minute trip and as always, Chentel was quick in responding.

Chentel is great. Her home, large yard and affection for dogs makes Lots of Love Doggie Resort a great decision when looking for doggie day care or overnight boarding. Chentel keeps me updated with pictures and texts so I feel very connected even when I out of town. Thanks Chentel!!

Chentel is outstanding. She is caring and wonderful with the dogs at her home. I feel comfortable and confident when I leave my dog with her. So glad and lucky to have found her on Dog Vacay.
As always Lucy's visit was a successful one. She is spoiled at Chentel's and that suits her and us just fine.
Particular parents cannot go wrong with a stay at Chentel's. We're looking forward to our next little trip knowing Lucy is well-cared for.

We are more than happy to have found Chentel as she is professional and warm and loving to our Ranger boy. Ranger certainly bonded to Chentel and seemed so happy. Would highly recommend Chentel to others!
Chentel was wonderful with both my dogs, especially my terrier mix who has anxiety when away from home & us. They both came home tuckered out, and spent the majority of the next day snoozing in their beds. Would recommend for any pups that are dog friendly and love attention!

Outstanding! Chentel was wonderful. She did a great job caring for, playing with and treating my dog like her own. She kept me updated with text messages and pictures during his stay. I highly recommend her and will absolutely board my dog with her again soon. Thank you Chentel!

Chentel is absolutely amazing. Mature, kind and intelligent. I think Bandit was actually sad to come home. He seemed so happy and well cared for. I would definitely recommend every dog have this experience and every owner to feel so secure in her care.

Chentel is everything dog lovers hope for! She pays attention to every detail and really devotes her time to the dogs she is caring for.....(meaning she is usually at the house giving them attention). Django had a great time, and we highly recommend her services!

Chentel was an AMAZING host for my shy little brussels! After a long travel delay, I was unable to return home in time to pick up my dog in time. Chentel was kind enough to keep her an extra day! She sent pictures of Nala throughout the day and quickly responded to all my texts :) She has a super dog friendly home with TONS of different play areas, a huge backyard, and lots of toys to play with. It's an understatement when she says "my home is your pups home". This was Nala's first time staying with a stranger and I can confidently say that it was a great experience :) She looks forward to her next visit to see her new pug friends at Chentels!

This was Molly's second stay with Chentel and she was eager to go inside the second we pulled up to her house. I recommend Chentel to all my friends!
We have fallen in love with DogVacay and Chentel, in particular! This was our first experience and, needless to say, we were a bit nervous about leaving our babies. Our meet and greet with Chentel cured our tummy tickles! Our fur-babies,Mandi and Sirk, loved her and her pugs. The accommodations were wonderful....very secure and loving. This will not be our last visit. Now we feel good about being away because Mandi and Sirk will be in good...and loving...hands! Thank you, Chentel, for making us welcome and for loving our babies! The picture you sent is now the wallpaper on my iPad reminding me of the wonderful time they had!

Another fun stay with Chentel and her furry friends! We have a much better time away when we know Lucy is not alone and has lots of attention and love. The pics she posts us are highlights each day we're away. Many stars and woofs to Chentel!
My little guy had another great stay while I was out of state for five days. I got the cutest daily pictures while I was away, and Chentel even took care of keeping him on his probiotics twice per day.
It's gotten to the point that the moment I turn down Chentel's street my little guy starts to perk up with nose on the window and tail a-waggin. He loves it there and feels as if it's his second home.
I feel my dog is well taken care of and loved. She is in a great mood when I pick her up.
Chantel was the most accommodating, flexible individual I have ever met! She is very nice and has a lot of experience caring for animals. I will definitely use her again if I need dog sitting in Dallas again.I could not have asked for a better experience for my first time using dog vacay.

Another great stay at Chentel's house! She took great care of Skipper and Ranger overnight! Great weather so they got to play outside in the backyard. Thanks Chentel!
Another great stay with Chentel who sent the cutest daily pics of my little guy. Over 24 hours later and he's still sleeping off all the excitement.
Chentel is great! This was my first time using Dogvacay. I was nervous about leaving my Ranger with someone new. He was recently diagnosed with epilepsy and requires medication 3 times a day. Chentel took great care of him for 10 days! She sent pictures to us to help ease our concerns. She is very prompt in replying to messages and reservations. I would highly recommend her. In fact, I will be using her again and again. I give her 5 stars!

Chentel is trustworthy, attentive and a real dog person. When I leave Casey with Chentel, I have no worries as to the care he will receive - she's the best.
Chentel was great!! This was our first time using DogVacay and couldn't have been happier. I would totally recommend her! Chentel even gave Stella a Christmas gift!
Molly loved her stay with Chentel and I really enjoyed getting daily picture updates of her during her stay. We highly recommend Chentel! She has a great backyard for the dogs to run and play and a very dog friendly house inside.
Another great experience for my dog with Chantel. Stella had a blast with Chantel and her dogs. I'd highly recommend her for anyone. It is comforting knowing my dog is in good and caring hands.
We've never used DogVacay before and were super nervous about leaving our babies with someone we didn't know. After the meet and greet we could tell that Chentel was obviously a dog lover by nature! We left Opie and Remy with her for 4 days and they were honestly super sad to leave her house. They are very tuckered out and clearly had a great time. Chentel kept in touch the entire time we were away and sent us photos to let us see how much fun they were having. I highly recommend using her and look forward to bringing Opie and Remy back again the next time we leave town.

Lucy spent 7 nights with Chentel. This was the longest she had ever been away from us,and we didn't know how she or we would do.
Lucy had a pawsome time,and we loved the pictures Chentel sent daily!
We are very confident in leaving Lucy, and we know she is receiving wonderful care and lots of love. A million thanks to Chentel!

As usual Estes came back happy and worn out. We always get pictures, updates and Chentel is always available for questions or random thoughts/concerns during our time away. It is always a relief to be able to take Estes somewhere that we know she will be safe and well cared for and loved!

My baby had another great stay at Lots of Love, which is aptly named as he receives plenty of love and attention. Thanks again!
Chentel is awesome, I feel my little dog is in good hands, save, and loved. That's all I could ask for.
we drop our dog off with Chentel once a week. and every week not only does louie look forward to it (he's crying once we get on her block) but i look forward to it. picking him up after work has become a treat for me. once that door is open and seeing that my dog had a good day with a genuinely kind and thoughtful person makes me warm and fuzzy inside. thanks Chentel!!

Chentel is wonderful with the pups and their parents. This was Lucy's first vacay, and it won't be the last with Chentel.
We've never seen "educational" toys, but Chentel had them.
She knows her business and had several tips about what Lucy would need to help her adjust to this new experience.
Chentel will give your special friend love and excellent care!

Chentel is awesome! super awesome! very flexible. has good toys. the other dogs at her home are great. Chentel is thoughtful and patient. When i picked up Louie from her place he was happy happy. And he knocked out early which is a plus. i am delighted to have found her.

This time I left the country, and felt in dog was in good hands. When I pick her up, she is happy, glad to see me, and seems well adjusted when she gets home. She gets right back in her normal routine. I am very happy with Chentel, she is a real sweetie.

Chentel is so good with our doggie and she is a great communicator. She let us know how he was doing and he was in great shape when we picked him up. This is our second time using dog vacay and booking with Chentel and we are very pleased.
My little guy had another great stay. I always appreciate the daily pics that Chentel texts so I can see how he is doing while I'm away.
It was our first time to stay with Chentel. When we returned home, my dog was happy, calm and got right back into her routine. I felt Chentel kept her safe and loved. I will use her on my next trip.
I was kind of nervous at first but after I met with Chentel and talked with her, I felt good! I was away on business for the weekend and she took great care of my baby Trouble! On top of spoiling him like I do, she sent picture texts to my phone throughout the weekend to let me see that he was okay and enjoying himself while I was away. Thank you again Chentel, Trouble will be back!

Chentel's home is doggie heaven. She is a real dog lover and it shows in the way she cares for them. Much, much, much better than placing your darling puppy in a kennel when out of town.
My little guy had another great stay with Chentel - it was only 2 nights, but he was completely worn out and happy. I know he gets lots of love, attention and stimulation with Chentel and the pugs.
I want to say super thanks to Chentel for watching our baby Estes. We are still new to leaving her and we were gone for a week and I was super nervous about it. She was very supportive and loving and Estes had a great time, and barely noticed when we came back. She was always in contact, patient with my million questions and concerns and kept us updated with pictures. It made my vacation all the better.!

My little guy had a great vacay and even got to make some new doggie friends. I've not heard a peep out of him since returning home hours ago. He is completely worn out and happy!
She did a great job communicating with us and taking care of our dog. I would highly recommend her.
Chentel was wonderful with our Cocker Polo. He seemed to really like staying with her and her pugs. Chentel sent us pictures every day of polo, so we could see him. We will definitely use her again
We try to bring our dog with us when possible, but when we can't we leave her with Chentel. We know that she is enjoying her time and the daily pictures are a plus for the dog parents.
I know my pup had another great stay with Chentel. I was busy unpacking from my trip and noticed my dog wasn't underfoot as he normally is. Instead, he was fast asleep getting caught up on his ZZZZs from the awesome time he had on his doggie vacation. I also appreaicte that Chentel was able to keep him on his temporary medication for no extra charge.

My dog loves staying with Chentel, especially when he has the chance to spend time outdoors and play with the pugs when the weather is nice.
Chentel was amazing and the boys had so much fun. We will never go anywhere else again!
Max had another great time with his best pug buds while I was in Australia for 3 weeks. I'm not even sure he missed me he was having so much fun. Chentel is great with him and the daily pics really make my day!
My little guy had another great stay with Chentel and the pugs. She kept me well apprised of his activities with daily updates. He even got to meet a new friend which wore him out. He hasn't moved since returning home so I know he had a good time.
I had a meet and greet with Chentel and felt really good about leaving our baby with her. She sent me daily pics and updates. She was very patient and caring with our dog (he has anxiety) and I would highly recommend her. Thanks! JC
Another great stay with Chentel. My little guy was happy - and exhausted - when I picked him up; both are good signs that he was well attended to.
Max had another great stay with Chentel and the pugs. He's really bonding with them and had a great time which allowed me to have a great time on my ski trip. Thanks again Chentel for taking such good care of Mr. Max.
Chentel was wonderful, a true dog lover. The environment was safe and doggy proof, and her own dogs provided good playmates. As an added bonus, she was in contact with me all throughout my time away, sending pictures and updates. When I picked up my darling, he obviously had bonded with Chentel. Will definitely be using her again.

Chentel was awesome. We will definitely use her again!
Max had a great time and I had a great vacation knowing that he was being well cared for. Chentel sent pictures every day and Max made some great new buddies in Jewel, Lucy and Horton. He can't wait for me to go out of town again!
This was the first time I've used DogVacay.com and it was a great experience. Chentel and her host dogs were great. Chentel provided daily updates and pictures and let me know that my dog was having a great time. I even had to extend my stay for an extra night and Chentel was very accommodating and quick to respond. I would recommend Chentel as a great dogsitter and I know that my dog looks forward to another great stay with her new pug friends.

My dog loves staying with Chentel and I appreciate the loving care he receives. He is always so happy when I pick him up.
As a first-time user of DogVacay, I was so nervous about leaving my dogs with someone I'd never met. As soon as my dogs and I walked through the door for our meet & greet, I felt extremely comfortable with our choice. My dogs are my babies and I could tell they would get great care with Chentel and her pups. My dogs had a wonderful stay with Chentel and I could tell from my daily pictures and their exhausted-ness when I picked them up that they had a great time while mom & dad were out of town. I'd definitely recommend Chentel to others and would leave my dogs with her again in a heartbeat.

Chentel was excellent! She was extremely pleasant and professional. Not only did she accept my dog at the last minute but she took excellent care of her. I will not hesitate to use her again and would highly recommend her.
We had to scramble to find some arrangements for our little one at the last minute for our recent vacation. Chentel was incredibly responsive. She was able to set up a meet and greet on very short notice and then set up the actual reservation really fast as well. Our puppy got along really well with her dogs and she sent us lots of pictures and updates while we were out. She gets all the stars!

Chentel B is wonderful!! My dog had such a good time. She got to play with the resident dogs and go exploring the back yard and the neighborhood on her morning walk. She received top level care in a loving environment. She was tired from playing and relaxed when we got back home unlike after she was boarded with the vet.
Chentel's quick response to my questions and request for a meeting was great especially since I didn't give her much of a time frame. She set both me and my dog at ease during the meet-n-greet.
Chentel's home and yard are clean and well maintained and full of dog toys much to my dog's delight. Her own pups are sweet and well behaved. She really knows what she's doing.
I never want to leave my dog anywhere else.

Thanks again for looking after my little guy. He had a great time!
My little guy had another great stay. Thanks!
My lil pup was totally worn out when I picked him up, so a sure sign that he had a grand time!
My little guy had a great time with Chentel and her pups. She provided a very loving environment and I look forward to using her services again.
