Home-Style Dog & Puppy Boarding
If you need to go out of town for a few days, why not let me give your dog tender loving care while you are away?
Two separate yards keep dogs well exercised and house-trained. Dog are let out to potty 6+ times a day, often additional trips outdoors including during the night if needed!
Dogs that are social with other dogs get to play with their doggy buddies!

Requirements for boarding
A pre-boarding meet & greet visit by dogs over the age of 6 months is required before dropping your pet off for boarding. This is to ensure that your furry friend is familiar and comfortable in my home, as well as your peace of mind so that you know that your dog will be content.
Age-appropriate vaccinations done by a veterinary clinic required.
Pick up and drop off times by appointment only!
No Extra Charges for:
Feeding specialized diets; giving medications; letting dog out in the middle of the night to potty; weekend drop off/pick up times; numerous daily off-leash romps in two yards; manners (wait before meals, not jumping up, etc.); nap time with cookies; play time with other dogs if appropriate, one-on-one time; and more!
At Sunpaws all dogs get chewies, stuffed Kongs and such ***included in the boarding rate*** to allow them to follow species-appropriate activities!

"We love Camp Dobe [sunpaws]. Hershey went to obedience school with Frances 10 years ago so boarding with Frances is like a great summer camp for your children.
They are well cared for and loved; good behavior is rewarded and they come home tired from group play so you all can rest together.
Thanks for taking such good care of Hershey."

“Really a wonderful atmosphere and personal care for my Katie when I had to travel several weekends ago. Frances worked with Katie, letting her socialize with other dogs.
I will always leave Katie at P's & Q's [sunpaws] if I travel again. Very reasonable rates!!”

"Might even be better than home! Frances is amazing and treats my two dogs like family! She understands them well!
I am so glad we found Sunpaws and Frances because it certainly makes leaving our children/dogs a lot easier! Plus she gives us picture and text updates while we are away!"

I highly recommend Sunpaws for boarding and training. I totally trust Frances and her son, Tyler, to care for our dachshund, Hokie. In fact, I would change my travel plans, and have done so, to make sure Hokie only stays at Sunpaws. Hokie loves to go to Camp and adores Frances and Tyler. My husband and I travel frequently, so Sunpaws has become Hokie’s second home.
Recently Hokie had a back problem and I was completely comfortable leaving her with Frances. Frances accommodated her restrictions and made sure she took her prescriptions. I can tell that Frances and Tyler genuinely love the dogs and take wonderful care of the “fur babies” in their care. The kennels and play yards are spotless and provide a large space to romp and play. I definitely give Sunpaws a 5 star rating and would add more stars, if possible. Thanks, Frances and Tyler, for taking such awesome care of my pup! Nancy, Mike & Hokie

It truly breaks my heart to move away from you. You have been a second mother to Hokie, and a dear friend all these years. I can’t fathom traveling without delivering Hokie to Sun Paws. I will simply have to bring her to Mobile for any trip that is longer than a weekend.
Thank you so much, again, for all of your kindness and TLC to Hokie, Mike and me. I better wind up this email, or I will be shedding tears. Nancy, Mike & Hokie
