  Dog Boarding & Doggie Day Care  
Villa Paws, located in Tierras Morenas under the shadow of Volcano Tenorio, ~ 7km up the road from Sabalito and the Lake Road, is the ONLY licensed boarding kennel in the area. We operate on a very personal level with your pets so that you know your dog will be safe and comfortable with us. At Villa Paws Boarding Kennel your pet will not be left unattended overnight like they might be if housed at the vet's office. We have 24hr security and cameras in the kennel and we live onsite. Please see some of our frequently asked questions below for more information about our services:

What Makes your kennel special?
Animals have been my passion for all of my life. I founded and directed Austin Zoo - a rescue sanctuary from 1990-2007 - it is still in existence today. I love dogs, all dogs. I strive to make their stay as stress free as possible. I call them by name. Play with them, brush them, fix their beds and toys. I even play classical music for them. I want the dogs to enjoy their stay so their family doesn't need to worry about them.

How long have you been in business?
My kennel is new but I have had dogs and other pets all of my life. I was a white tail deer rehabber in Texas when I was running Austin Zoo (which is a rescue sanctuary - Austin Zoo)

How many staff members do you have?
Myself, Cindy Carroccio, and a very dedicated kennel worker - named Cariltos. I also have my vet on speed dial.

Are any of them licensed in pet care?
I have personally trained Carlitos and he is a quick and eager learner. He loves the dogs and never raises his voice to them. He is kind and gentle. If they had a licensing program in Costa Rica for kennel workers, I am sure he would pass with flying colors.

Do you have a groomer on staff?
I do easy grooming like baths and brushing but have a groomer I can refer my clients to use, if they so chose. I use her for two of my personal pets.

Can you trim my dogs nails while in your care?
If you need this done, I do it at no charge.

How many runs do you have for the dogs?
I have 9 super big runs - I didn't want a lot of runs, I want to know your pet personally, not just become a number to me.

Do they stay indoors or outdoors?
The runs are under a roof because it can rain a lot here. But it is open for breezes and fresh air.

Do they have one on one time with you or another care giver?
Yes, we love on all the dogs so they feel special - and because they ARE!

Do they have social time with other dogs?
If they are social dogs, they can play with our dogs that enjoy the company. Bitsy, our tiniest dog, is very much the welcoming ambassador to the new boarders.

Do you do in home pet sitting?
Yes, we can also arrange to do petsitting at your home, if you are more comfortable with that.
