About Enrique

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you’re like me, you have an incredible connection with your dogs. When you’re unable to be with your fur babies, you want to make sure they’re with someone who will be there with them all day and love them just as much as you do.

I would like to point out is that this is my full-time profession and not a temporary, part-time or trying to make a few extra bucks kind of gig. This is what I do all day, every day. I have tons of experience with dogs of all ages, breeds, sizes and temperaments. This lets me be good at what I do and I love what I do too.

Cage free relaxation inside or outside
Dog door and double patio door access
Backyard playtime in our landscaped and manicured yard
Dual fence with slam latches on pad locked gates
Freshly baked home-made dog treats
Hand written report card (for dogs staying 2+ nights)

Hours of operation:
9 am to 7 pm.
I am responsive during these hours.

Drop off and pick up times:
Anytime during business hours by appointment. Sticking to the appointment time you pick ensures there is no wait when you arrive to drop off or pick up your fur baby.

Optional* walks:
Walks through O.P. Schnabel park are available for $10 per 30 minute period. Clients choosing this receive a screen shot of your pet's GPS tracked route.

*Guests who exhibit dominating, aggressive or destructive behaviors are walked at the owner's expense to constructively get energy out which tires the offender and makes them more content and a better guest.

Pricing for boarding:
$35 per day for an altered adult dog.
$40 per day for altered male and female puppies
$40 per day for unaltered female puppies
$40 per day for special needs or elderly dogs

Pricing for other services
$10 per 1/2 hour walk
$15 per bath

How is boarding calculated?
Boarding is calculated in a 24 hour block with a 2 hour grace.
For example, if you drop off at 11, pick up by 1 on your pick up day to avoid additional charges.

What happens if I don't make it within the "grace" period?
A half day of boarding of the applicable rate is billed and you have until the last pickup of the day which is 7 pm sharp.

What happens if I don't make it by 7 pm?
Your fur baby is boarded till the following day and you are billed the remaining half day applicable rate. You would then have until 1 pm before the cycle would repeat. If you have questions on this, please contact me prior to booking.

First time clients:
Please submit your dogs vaccination papers prior to boarding. Upon your arrival, please plan to walk your dog into my home. This ensures your fur baby does not feel "abandoned" or "dumped". Secondly, it allows me to share initial observations about your fur baby and to ask clarifying questions about your pet. This process generally takes 10-15 minutes but can be longer should you have questions.

Pet cleanliness:
Your pet has free run of the house, beds, couches, etc. so please bring a flea free and clean pet (trimmed nails are appreciated) at drop-off. Pets needing to be cleaned upon arrival and those boarding 7 nights are bathed at the owner's expense.

Things to bring:
Your dog's leash and collar.
A properly fitted "front" mount walking harness if you have one. This allows me to humanely move/ guide your dog by directing him/her from the chest without risk of choking your dogs like collars can do. The harness is removed at night and worn during the day.
Your pet's food with feeding instructions.
A blanket that will fit inside your pet's sleeping den and one that is able to be washed in the event it is accidentally soiled.

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

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'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!
Enrique is amazing. He is very knowledgeable about everything dogs! He cares about them and walks them daily. He even makes homemade dog biscuits! Sunny had a great time and was in very good hands. We will definitely bring him to Enrique's house again!
WOW! WOW! WOW! was all my dog Luna could say! WOW! is my comment too! AP
Enrique took great care of my dog Molly. You can tell him and his wife take their job seriously and definitely went out of there way to play with her and make her comfortable. The picture updates we a bonus!
