Dog Boarding for the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro Area

Unfortunately we can’t always take our furry friends with us when we travel. That’s where our dog boarding services can help. Canine Cowboy is a kennel-free facility, we don’t have kennels and dogs are free to play, sleep, or hang out as they please. Dogs are family members and should be treated as such. We wouldn’t put our dogs in a kennel when we leave town and neither should you. A stay at Canine Cowboy is like a sleepover with some of your closest friends. Your dog will watch DogTV, play games, play with friends, and get lots of love from our expertly trained staff. At night dogs who are boarding with us settle into their choice of sleeping arrangements: dog bed, couch, or daybed.

Wondering what a typical day in the life of a Canine Cowboy dog is like? Check out an example of our daily schedule here.

How It Works

Before dog boarding begins all new guests must complete a meet and greet. During your dogs meet and greet we will assess their behavior with us and the other dogs. Dogs are individuals and to ensure success we go at your dogs pace. Dogs are placed into groups based on size, age, and play style.

Meet and greets typically take 2-3 hours. You will drop your dog off and then pick them up at the end. Meet and greets are $10 per dog. If they pass it goes as a credit towards boarding. If they fail it gets refunded.

Dog Requirements

Travel plans can be unpredictable – flights get delayed and traffic can back up for miles. We offer flexible check in & out times. Check in or out anytime during open lobby hours. Prices are based on a 24 hour period. Check out time is determined by your check in time. However, you are not required to check out by your check out time. Any time over your check out time will be charged a late check out fee of $2/hr.

Here’s an example:
Ranger checks in at 8am Monday and checks out at 10am Wednesday. His total is $74. (2 nights at $35/night ($70 total) plus 2 hours late check out at $2/hr ($4 total) = $74)
