The Pup Palace-for royal dogs!

I am a mature and responsible person who ADORES dogs! I live in the Spring Branch section of Houston very near I-10 and Beltway 8. My home is called The Pup Palace because it is set up specifically for the care, comfort and safety of all dogs! I have numerous safety features. I have a 7' double wood fence around my yard and I even have "fencing" inside my front door so that no dog ...

What Marcella would like to know about your dog

I prefer small and medium-sized dogs, no particular breeds are off limits. I will occasionally board a larger dog if I have no other clients during the same time period.

When Marcella watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live on a quiet, residential street and it is a dead end. We would walk on the street. I also have doggie doors that go out into my backyard where the dogs can run and play and I have doggie peep holes in my double wood fence.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog may sleep on the sofa, on a chair, on a mini trampolene, on a doggie bed or pillow that I have in the living room but they can also sleep in the kitchen, computer room or dining room. Some DO like to sleep in the computer room or dining room where there are big windows where they can look out all night long, and daytime, too!

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am home all day every day except for quick errands.
