About Enrique

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you’re anything like us, you have an incredible connection with your dogs. When you’re out of town, or super busy with other obligations, you want to make sure they’re with someone who will love them just as much as you do and you want to know your dog will have a blast too! We started our dog boarding business to give you peace of mind while you’re away from your fur babies. So, leave them in our good hands and enjoy yourself.

I'm the right sitter for you if you want:
*A FULL TIME professional caregiver who's sole job is to care for dogs all day, every day.
*Someone with 25 years experience with canines of all ages, breeds, sizes, temperaments and needs.
*Your dog to have a supervised interactive and social environment with other dogs
*Indoor/outdoor access for your fur baby through a dog door and patio doors to a landscaped and manicured backyard for your fur baby to run and play in
* Freshly baked home-made dog treats for your dog to enjoy during their stay
*Your dog to have the option of going to a family park for trail walks ($10 per trip)

I am NOT the right sitter for you if you want:
* Your dog to be the only dog here
* A part-time sitter
* Your dog to be left alone and unattended for hours at a time
* The cheapest care for your special fur baby

Pricing per day:
$36 (That works out to only $1.50 per hour for a full time sitter)
$31 each additional adult dog
$41 puppies < 1 year old
$41 special needs (disabled, highly energetic, destructive or elderly dogs)

Drop off and pick up times:
Anytime between 9 am-7 pm every day by appointment. This ensures a quick drop off and pick up for you and your fur baby. You don't even have to get out of your vehicle if you don't want to.*

*First time clients:
Please plan to walk your dog into our home and to spend 10-15 minutes with them so they do not feel dumped or abandoned. On future visits, we will receive your pet outside without you needing to come in or even get out of the car to expedite the drop off and pick up.

How is boarding calculated?
Per 24 hours. For example, if you drop off at 10, pick up by 10 on your pick up day to avoid additional charges.

Pet cleanliness:
Please bring a clean pet (trimmed nails are appreciated) at drop off. Pets that arrive dirty / smelly and guests boarded 7 nights or more are bathed at the owner's expense to keep them smelling pleasant and clean since guests have free run of the house, couches and beds.

Requirements to board with us:
*Proof of your dog's vaccinations submitted prior to booking
*Your dog's leash
*A property fitted "front" mount walking harness such as an Easy Walk. If you do not have one we will provide one to you at our cost and we will send your dog home with it when they leave.
*Your pet's food with feeding instructions.
*Optional - A blanket or personal item that will fit inside your pet's sleeping den and one that is able to be washed.

Things to keep at home:
Everything else. I have ample beds, bowls and toys.

What will my dog do during the day?
Pretty much whatever they want while being supervised. The house and yard are large enough to give all guests a place to hang out and be a dog. Some choose to play with others outside. Some choose to lounge around on a dog bed or couch. The choice is theirs.

Will my dog be crated?
Dogs are temporarily crated when a new guest arrives so that the dog owner and /or arriving dog are not overwhelmed when they walk in the door. This safety precaution also ensures dogs do not "accidentally" get out. Guests are crated at bedtime for their safety and to keep them out of trouble since they are not watched as we are sleeping too.

If you have a question not answered here, feel free to contact me.

Enrique and his wife were awesome! We were in San Antonio for a New Year's party, and needed a place to watch our dogs, Jax and Ruby, for the night. Most other places we looked into required a weekend stay, but we only needed them to be cared for the one night. Enrique's home was very pet friendly. We really enjoyed that they treated our dogs as if they were their own. They had freedom to play outside in a fully-fenced and secure backyard, and were able to hang out inside the house, too. Enrique even sent us pictures of Jax and Ruby periodically throughout the stay, and they looked very happy to be there. We highly recommend Enrique V, and will most definitely book another stay for Jax and Ruby the next time we are in the area.

Enrique is a man with a fanny pack full of treats that my dog fell in love with instantly! He and his wife made me very comfortable dropping her off, they let her sniff around before letting all the other dogs come out and play so she could get comfortable too… We were gone for a week long trip in London but I had no worries leaving foxy, and every time we got phone service during the week it was such a joy finding fun pictures of what foxy had been doing during her stay! They made me feel SO at ease when I dropped foxy off that I instantly booked them for New Year's eve as well! I have used one other doggy vacay in the past and left that one feeling so uneasy about leaving my dog so this was such a gem to find. I will always be coming back to Enrique and his wife!

Enrique did an excellent job of making sure our two girls had plenty of opportunities to play and kept us updated with all of their adventures very well. An absolutely great host who definitely took a huge load of stress away during the holiday season.

Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of our baby! He had an absolute blast and he's still enjoying the treats you made and sent home with him! Thank you so much and he can't wait to visit again!!!
Enrique was beyond amazing! I am thrilled with the care my dog received and would recommend him to anyone.
Enrique does an excellent job caring our four legged baby. He doesn't want to leave he feels right at home. I know my dog is always loved and well cared for at Enrique!
I cannot give enough praise to the service supplied by Enrique and his wife. From the moment I met them on the meet and greet before the booking was accepted I was completely at ease and confident my dogs would be happy there. They have a great understanding of dogs and their behaviour differences and their premises are as good if not better than your dog has at home. I was updated during their stay with messages and with photos on a daily basis which made me feel very comfortable.
My dogs have returned home with no stress and no bad habits and have slotted back into home life with the greatest of ease. Both dogs received a report card and a bag of treats to take away. I would happily rate the dog stay as a 10 out of 10 and would not hesitate in recommending them to others. I will deffinately use them again. Great job guys.

A wonderful home to place your fur child.
I loved that I got daily email updates and pictures of Buddys adventures with new puppy pals.

Homemade treats, lots of play time and love!
Thank you for giving us piece of mind knowing that Buddy was in good hands and a safe home.

My dogs did not even miss me. They enjoyed. the home atmosphere
Enrique did an excellent caring for our dog while we were on vacation. He made our dog feel at ease and calmed all our dog owner anxieties as well. I would highly recommend Enrique and Lori to watch your pet. They truly care for your dog as if their own. They take them on walks, feed them homemade treats and give them lots of love and attention. Couldn't be happier with their services!

My dog is actually sad when she leaves Enrique's! Finally a place where my big doggie can have some fun while we are away. She actually comes back better behaved than when we drop her off. They are organized and professional but just a huge leap above any other option I have had for dog boarding. You won't be sorry if you choose to leave your baby with them.

A far better experience than kenneling my dogs. They were in a home environment with constant playtime and canine and human interaction. Enrique sent photos every day to ease any worries I had and he was in constant communication with me through their stay. Enrique also identified some behavioral issues that he worked through with my dogs and they were surprisingly calm when I came to pick them up. Finally, each of my dogs had a goodie bag with organic dog treats to take home. I have already booked my next stay with Enrique.

We trusted Enrique with our 2 year old Pitbull, Lola. He did a FANTASTIC job with her in a last minute bind. I felt very comfortable with him watching Lola & thoroughly enjoyed receiving pictures during her stay with him. He went above and beyond with homemade treats and the detailed doggie report card of how her stay went. I would high recommend him to anyone looking for a place for their pooch to stay. We will definitely be giving him a call the next time we are in San Antonio!

Yet again, Enrique has surpassed my expectations, and I feel EXTREMELY confident leaving our baby with him. I receive several updates/pictures during her stay there...cannot say enough good things about Enrique. Just book...you'll understand after the first few hours away from your pup.

Enrique and his wife are amazing at what they do! They really care for your pet as if it were their own and are excellent at keeping communication with you along with photos of your pup to keep you at ease. His attention to detail is on point. He bakes dog treats from scratch and makes a report card as well! He will definitely be who we will have watching our dog when we travel from now on.

Awesome! I felt that my pets would be happy when I visited prior to leaving them. Enrique is very knowledgable, cooks organic treats, allows access to inside and outside, kennel free, send pics, videos and updates. He doesn't look at this as a job. I felt like he treated Carly and Cooper as his own. I will not take them anywhere else. ❤️

After meeting Enrique and seeing the set up for my puppy, I had zero reservations regarding leaving our Everest with him. I received multiple updates on how she was doing, she had a wonderful stay and I have referred people to Enrique w/out hesitation. I booked another week with him immediately after my first experience and he will remain my FIRST CHOICE when we need a safe, friendly place for Everest to stay while we are away.

Did an amazing job of petsitting our two dogs. Kept us updated with text messages and pictures of them having a good time in their "vacation." Also gave us a very detailed report of how they acted while we were away. Overall was a great experience.
Enrique was fantastic with our pets. He accepted our holiday request for vacancy on short notice during a holiday weekend, was very kind and considerate during the drop off. He checked in on a regular basis and sent several photos of our puppies during their stay. He was great.

Thank you Enrique!
