Pet Boarding

Dog Boarding

VCA Becker Animal Hospital and Pet Resort is now the first – and only – pet boarding service in San Antonio with its own in-ground swimming pool for the use of its regular dog boarding and Doggie Day Care canines. Our spacious and glass-enclosed suites offer interaction with other dogs, with the privacy and security of your pet’s own space. Our skylights provide abundant natural light.

Dog Boarding Suites
Our kennels offer a bright and airy atmosphere with natural light through our glass block windows. Both indoor and indoor-outdoor kennels are available.

With our pet boarding, you get brand-new, dog boarding and cat boarding facilities to provide your furry companion with a comfortable stay. We offer 53 luxury dog boarding suites, 24 of which have a window view to the outdoors. There are a further 72 kennels, 30 of which have a doggy door that accesses an outside pen for fresh air and change of view. We will follow any specialized or prescriptive diets that may be required, and we can administer any medications necessary for your pet.

Boarding charges are calculated based on the number of nights stayed; for example, a pet staying two days and one night would be charged only for a single night.

All boarding dogs must be current on their yearly canine distemper and rabies vaccines and their 6 month bordetella, kennel cough, and canine influenza vaccines.

All boarding cats must be current on their yearly feline distemper and rabies vaccines. Prices may be subject to change.

  • A veterinarian is available 24 hours a day, every day, in the same building, for any attention your companion animal may need.
  • All boarding pets are fed Science Diet Sensitive Skin and Stomach food and all guests have food and water in front of them 24 hours a day. We also can feed your pet your own personal diet; please set up your special feeding instructions at the front desk while checking in.
  • All boarding dogs have access to our spacious exercise pens 2 to 3 times a day or to their own private outdoor pen multiple times per day – depending where they stay.

Dog Boarding Suites
Suites are from 49 to 64 square feet in size and have front and side glass walls and solid tile back and sides. This allows your dog to socialize through the glass and also retire to a private bed area. 24 of the suites have windows to the outside. Suite guests get taken out for exercise 3 times a day. Video cams are operational in every suite to view your furry friend. Suite rooms all have skylights for natural light.

Dog Kennels
Our indoor/outdoor kennels are 48 square feet total size so your pet has plenty of room. They have a 24 square foot inside area, and a 24 square foot outdoor area. We also have indoor only kennels that are a full 24 square feet of room for your pet. All kennels are inside our main building and are fully heated and cooled, and have a ceiling fan breeze, and glass block windows for natural light.

Courtesy Call
We know that value assurance that your pet arrived safely at our Pet Resort and is comfortably settled in. We will give you a courtesy call you within one day of your pet’s arrival to assure you that things are going well and we will repeat this every five days that your pet is here. Please feel free at that time to relay any additional instructions to us that you may have for your pet. Remember that Suite pets can be viewed by you 24 hours a day on our suite web cams.

Outside Exercise Area
We have large 6 foot by 10 foot exercising enclosures for dogs, so that your dog can exercise individually. We make sure that your dog has his own space and is in not in physical contact with other dogs. We have found that allowing the dogs to exercise in the same area where other dogs are is helpful, but the dogs are each kept in their own separate enclosures. This gives the dog fresh air and outdoor exercise without risk in a safe and controlled environment.

Behind our exercise area there is an 8-foot concrete wall, and all other areas have multiple fences, so that your dog is completely secure from outside contact, and is secured from leaving the area.
When you board your pet in a suite, your pet will visit this area three times a day.

For a tour of our boarding facilities, please feel free to drop by between 10:00 am - 7:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Do you need your pet boarded as soon as possible? Contact us today and we’ll get right on it!
