 In Advice, Choosing A Kennel, Dog Boarding

Spring Break is right around the corner and we will have the opportunity to meet lots of new fur-friends and their families! For a lot of our new friends, this will be their first time visiting us at Pawderosa Ranch and might even be their first time staying the night somewhere new. I want to help prepare you and your pup for their spring break vacation by sharing my tips to make their stay comfortable!

Dog Boarding

Pawderosa Ranch is your dog’s home away from home!

Take a tour – Before dropping your pup off for lodging, schedule a tour with us. During your tour, you will have our team member’s full attention, we can answer any of your questions and you can tell us all about your pup! After your tour, feel free to take advantage of our free first day of daycare coupon. Your pup will have the opportunity to meet our team and make some new fur-friends.

Bring proof of vaccinations – Before we can take your dog to the play yards, we will need to make a copy of their vaccinations. We require up to date records by a vet of Rabies, Distemper and a 6-month Bordetella (this vaccine helps prevent the spread of kennel cough). If you are unsure about reading the vet records, you can always email the vaccines over in advance for us to look at them. Email us at

Fill out our agreement & registration form – We want to get to know your pup, so our registration packet has questions such as: ‘What type of food do you feed your dog? How much?’ ‘What type of toys does your dog like to play with?’ and ‘Has your dog ever been socialized outside of the home?’. Our Enrichment Specialists take this information to set your dog up for success when finding the perfect play group and activities. Our agreement form goes over all our policies.

Leave alternate contact numbers – Traveling doesn’t always go according to plan and your pup’s stay may need to be extended. If you have a list of local friends and family that can call on your behalf, let us know!

Pick a play package – You know your dog best. If your pup LOVES running around first thing in the morning and then naps the rest of the day, book our Cowpoke package. We will still give your pup one-on-one time and give them potty breaks throughout the day. Or, if your pup never tires out, you can book our Trailblazer package. Guaranteed he’ll be tuckered out by end of day! You can go over our activity packages in advance!

We treat your pup as if they were our own!

You can also RSVP for our South Pawdre Bash on March 13th. Our lodging pups will have the ultimate spring break!

Your pup can have the best Spring Break vacation at the Ranch!

Packing list – At Pawderosa Ranch, we provide your pup with food, raised beds, blankets, food bowls, water buckets, toys, homemade ranch treats, fun and love. All we really need from you is your pup, their leash and collar and their food if they tend to get upset tummies. (Personal tip: When I lodge my pups, I divide their food in Ziplocs with their name and the date to be fed. In the baggies I also add however many treats I want them to have per meal. This way I know they can enjoy their treats from home AND the homemade ranch treat!)

Stay calm – Your pup is about to have the best vacation ever. When dropping them off, sometimes we want to give them one million good bye hugs but when they pick up on your emotions this can confuse them. Try to stay calm and remember that you’ve done your research and trust us! We will give your pup all the loving they can stand!

Personally, I have 5 dogs and traveling with them all is not easy. So, my husband and I lodge them at the Ranch. I love receiving their barkmail showing photos of all the fun they’re having. If you would like to schedule a tour, give us a call at 210-404-9941.

Until next week…Well Wishes and Puppy Kisses!

At Pawderosa Ranch we welcome all dogs to come play and stay with us!
Each rancher is cared for by a specialized staff who understand the
benefits of dog daycare and lodging and who are passionate about making
Pawderosa Ranch the best dog boarding in San Antonio. We can’t wait to
see your pup!
