Rover Oaks Pet Resort

Long before going to Aunt Chrissy and Uncle Jo’s wedding in New Hampshire this weekend, Mommy and Daddy started worrying about who was going to take care of Preston when they were away from their new home. Since Preston was still adjusting to the new home, Mommy and Daddy thought it would be a good idea if he went to a boarding kennel where he could hang out with other doggies as opposed to staying at home with a pet sitter. In the search for the best boarding kennels in Houston, Rover Oaks Pet Resort’s great customer reviews stood out the most. Mommy and Daddy made a visit and were given a tour of the facility. They were very pleased with what they saw and immediately booked a luxury suite for Preston (since it was Preston’s first time staying in a kennel, Mommy and Daddy wanted him to have a cozier room that feels like home. Next time, they are putting him in a standard room called “Bunkhouse” to toughen him up!). The luxury suites were so popular that Preston had to be on the wait list until a cancellation came up.
There are different packages including some extra services to go with the lodging. Preston got the package with the most playtimes (3 hours in the morning, 3 hours in the afternoon) that would hopefully tire him out.
Here are pictures of some of the nicely decorated luxury suites at Rover Oaks (photos taken from Aren’t they cute? No wonder the reservation has to be made way early!

Preston stayed three nights at Rover Oaks. Mommy and Dadddy missed Preston so dearly over the weekend that they showed up at the door to pick him up as soon as Rover Oaks opened at 7am on Monday.
Mommy and Daddy made a special request to see Preston in his room and take some pictures. Preston was surprised to see Mommy and Daddy and looked a little confused.

He must have told the staff at Rover Oaks that he misses his best friends in California, Mina and Milo the Westies, so they gave him a room with the Westie theme.

Once Preston realized he got to go home with Mommy and Daddy, he was beside himself with excitement. (warning: you might want to turn down the volume of your speakers first)

  1. Wow, Preston – that IS luxury!! What a gorgeous pet hotel to stay at – you lucky pup! Quite right that your humans booked you the suite – my humans would have too. (I wonder if they would have had a suite big enough for me – those looked a bit – er – “snug” for my big, long body, I think! πŸ˜› )

    I feel so terrible, Preston, that I haven’t visited you in ages! My human’s been crazily busy and we’ve been having lots of computer problems so I haven’t been able to visit my blog friends at all! Anyway, I hope I can get back to normal now.

    I’m off now to catch up on your other posts – I want to hear all about your new home!

    Hi Preston! What a LUXURIOUS room you had, I mean SUITE you had at Rover Oaks! How funny is that, that they put you in the Westies themed room!! (They must follow your blog!)

    Thank you for the warning on turning down the speakers, you weren’t kidding!! WOW were you excited to see your Mommy and Daddy! Mommy’s eyes are watering up over here….she said it was just too sweet!! Glad you are now home in your new apartment!

  3. Oh Preston! That was so sweet! My Mama’s eyes welled up in tears too! You were so happy to see your Mommy and Daddy! So sweet! You did look a little confused at first, but when your curly tail wagged, we knew you recognized the most important people in your life!

    I hope my parents can find something as good as Rover Oaks here in Austin because I might need to go to a pet hotel in October. Its because Uncle Gary is getting married in Vegas, and no doggies are allowed. πŸ™ I’m a little nervous, but my Mama is really nervous because it will be my first time at a boarding/kennel/hotel as well. I hope I will get a suite as nice as yours with that much playtime! I hope you were able to make a new friend while you were there!
