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 6-10 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!

"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."
Hershey, boarder since October 2006
Requirements for boarding


A pre-boarding 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.

Every fifth boarding visit earns a 10% discount towards a future boarding.

Pick up and drop off times by appointment only due to dog training classes schedules.


Additional boarding credits available

"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!"

Cookie and Millie, boarders since March 2015
