About Saphire

24 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
WE STARTED OFF THE NEW YEAR BUYING A HOME AND NOW THE DOGS A QUARTER AN ACRE TO PLAY ON!!! We bought this home with not only our family in mind but the dogs to so we now have an all dog room and the dogs yard is a little over 8,000 sq ft that they can run and play on we are so excited!! I have 15+ years dealing with dogs, my dogs get along very well with other dogs, everyone loves to play! Everyone is allowed on the furniture! My home is typically kennel free unless your dog sleeps in a kennel and you bring theirs, I aim to keep your dogs as comfortable as possible! Your dogs safety is my top priority when they are with me!! We go for walks weather permitting, we do have constant potty breaks and play time outside but no one is ever left alone outside under any circumstance!!!! During your stay I will send you pictures and videos! We have a lot of fun here if you have any questions please feel free to ask me!!!
I know how much your family means to you and when they come and board with me they become a part of my family too!
If you are interested in boarding and see that it may show me as unavailable please message me!!!
I currently have my five of my own dogs and I foster dogs with the "In the name of Zoey" rescue, and Great Dane Rescue of SouthEast Texas.

Saphire was a great hostess to our sweet girl, Penny. Saphire sent us photos and responded promptly when we inquired about Penny while we on vacation. Penny looked very happy throughout her visit and came home very tired from all the playtime with Saphire's dog-family. We loved knowing that Penny had friends to play with and plenty of room to roam while we were away. Saphire is clearly a dog-lover and we will use her services again in the future.

Sapphire was a great host and a true dog lover, I will definitely be back. She goes the extra mile.
My Giant Schnauzer & mixed Terrier had a blast & the pictures proved it! Saphire is only a few miles from my home which makes planning & logistics so much easier for us. Knowing our furry babies are in good hands enables us to enjoy our trips that much more!

I was really happy with Saphire and the care she gives all the dogs. She had all big dogs when we decided to leave our 18lb Jack Russell there. I was really apprehensive knowing that my dog is not keen on meeting bigger dogs, but Saphire had every dog in control. No hassles while leaving our dog there, she took control of him right at the door, and she was readily available with updates anytime we had contacted her.
Thanks Saphire, we will board him again when the next time comes.

Saphire took care of our Italian mastiffs for almost a week! A big job but she was more than up to the task. We went with her because of the close proximity to home but also because of her large breed experience. As others had mentioned she sends photos everyday of the dogs playing and they came back tired! Better than being boarded in a crate all day! Highly recommended!

My dog had a fabulous time. Saphire treated my dog like one of her own. I would definitely use her services again!
Ali was very happy playing with her dogs. She sent me great pictures and he came home VERY tired. He also came home with a fancy bandanna and a great DVD. I would use Saphire again!
She's an amazing sitter! Highly recommended.
I think my dog Ellie had a great time at Saphire's playing with all the other dogs. She was very tired when we picked her up on Sunday afternoon.
This was our first time to have Chloe watched by someone other than family. She seemed to have a wonderful time. She is always alert in the car but she passed out on our way home. She loved her stay and we can not wait for her next stay!
A M A Z I N G ! Nothing else will describe it better :) Our sweet Milo was so happy... Saphire sent us a daily images and videos updates and she was so nice and polite with us during all the time.
She also gave us a CD with all the pictures and videos she took during the time Milo was there (during Christmas) and a gift bag wrapped as a present with all kind of toys... as I said - AMAZING.
Thank you dear Saphire - we`ll see you again soon :)

This was my first time using dog vacay to board our dog, a close friend reccomended that we use saphire and luckily she happen to be available last minute before our vacation. Her communicating response was fast and booking was a breeze. During the time away from our dog she kept us up to date with pictures and videos of our dog playing. Saphire also took Christmas pictures, sent him home with a present and bathed our dog prior to going home. I definitely reccomended anyone who is looking to board their pet use Saphire. Your pet will have so much fun!!!!!

Saphire was a real lifesaver! I had completely forgot to book boarding for my little guy for over my Thanksgiving break and it was impossible to get him in anywhere. 2 days before I left for a 5 day weekend I found Saphire. She was so easy to work with and took such great care of my precious baby boy! She has a great yard and plenty of other dogs for yours to play with. My dog just got home and he's so worn out from his days there! She gave him a bath before I picked him up, which was a great unexpected addition. I loved coming home to not only a worn out dog, but a nice clean one! I will definitely be using her services again if I ever need to!

Saphire was great with our two dogs. She sent updates and pictures as well as kept in constant contact to assure us that our dogs were adapting and having fun. I would definitely recommend her and we will be back in the future. Also an added bonus is that she makes a CD with plenty of videos and pictures of our dogs during their stay.

Saphire was great. She took daily pics of the dog, and sent me daily updates. Bailey got a bath the day I came to get her. She looked great, and there weren't any issues.Will be a repeat customer
Saphire was great with my husky puppy, he had a great time interacting with all her dogs which I enjoyed viewing later on a DVD she provided of his stay! Would highly recommend a visit
All I have to say is what a wonderful person saphire is!
I originally had a scheduled sitter who canceled on me last minute. saphire was gracious enough when other sitters wouldn't took my dog without hesitation.

Beyond that my dog had a great stay with her and I reviewed daily pictures and updates on his status. Plus when we picked him up, he was clean and she even gave us a DVD with all his pictures from his stay!

Thanks Saphire!

Saphire was great to work with! She was flexible with our schedule and she took amazing care of our dogs. I have a dog who gets very stressed in new situations and she did amazing at Saphire's house. I have the pictures to prove it since Saphire sent me lots of photos and videos while we were out of town. I would definitely have her watch our dogs again. My two Aussies are no walk in the park so it's an extra testament to her dog boarding skills.
