We strive to give all guests vacationing at Canine Republic an individualized experience, with a suite and activity schedule to fit almost every personality! Guests who stay overnight will have the option to enroll into our group Playcare (compatible dogs only) at no extra charge. We can also adjust the length of the Playcare time to suite your dog's energy level and interest.

Not to worry, if your dog is "too cool for school" we offer private play-yard time at regular intervals so they get plenty of fresh air, exercise, and potty breaks throughout the day. We also have an array of one-on-one activities with our trained Kennel Technicians to choose from, if your dog needs some extra TLC. So whether your dog likes to be the star of the show or is the sweet & shy type, there is activity schedule to meet their needs and ensure they have a positive and stress-free stay! 

All suites are deep cleaned daily with germicide to maintain a clean and sanitary environment. We do our best to photograph all of our boarding guests daily and post the pictures on our Facebook page and we will update you with report cards on their health and behavior as needed. We encourage you to contact us any time to check on your dog during their stay. Our facility is even equipped with a fire suppression system for the safety of all our beloved guests!

Boarding FAQ

We allow all breeds to board with us as long as they are not aggressive to the staff. We also allow intact animals to board with us, but your dog must be spayed or neutered to participate in group playcare if they are over 6 months of age. 

If this is your dog's first time boarding with us or if your dog has had vaccination updates since their last stay, please be sure to provide the most current vaccination records showing your dog is up-to-date on Rabies, Bordatella, and DHLPP. You can upload the files to our Customer Portal, or simply fax, email, or bring a hard copy with you when you drop your dog off for boarding.

Our location is:
4900 McDermott Road
Plano, TX  75024
We are located on McDermott between Preston and Ohio blvd, across the street from Sam's Club.

Wondering what to bring with your dog for boarding? We will provide the food and water bowls, and each dog will get a comfy (but chew-proof) Kuranda cot bed in their suite. Beyond that, here are our recommendations: 

  • We encourage you to bring your dog's regular diet and any treats or medication they require. Please take the time to pre-portion each meal into individual ziploc baggies, we greatly appreciate it! 
  • Please bring all meds in their original prescription bottles. Weekly pill organizers are okay as long as you brief us on the type of medication the dog is receiving.
  • We do not recommend you bring toys, as they are easy to misplace and pose a choking/ingestion risk depending on the type. Toys stay in the dog's suite and are never brought to Playcare since many dogs are toy possessive, so please make sure any toys you bring are safe to leave with the dog unattended. Nylabones and other similar chews are generally safe!
  • Let us know if you want us to provide your dog with a blanket in their suite to lay on top of the cot. You are also welcome to bring extra bedding from home if your dog prefers, we just ask that it be machine washable. Bonus points if its also distinctive and easy to tell apart from everyone else's bedding! :)

You can drop off or pick up your dog any time during our business hours, although we do kindly request that you drop off for boarding at least 30 minutes before closing, so we have time to get your dog settled in before we leave.
