My name is Jonnie. Puppy Paradise is in many ways a puppy! We have lots of potential! Right now renting our space means getting access to ALL 30 acres of this beautiful space. Puppy Paradise will eventually be a complex of 5-7 dog parks/boarding kennel/daycare pack/on-site self-service or by appointment dog grooming and much more. @puppyparadisesalado on instagram is a great place to learn about our dog care philosophy. Right now we are still sharing this vision with new friends every week and hope to see several new friends everyday. When you visit, expect to see myself, often for just a quick hello, expect that my dogs will be either in my home or a small enclosed pump house area at the very entrance to the property. Signs are being made. ☺️ I am eager to accommodate dog parents of reactive or aggressive dogs. Your dogs deserve to be outdoors and in a place where they can be protected from the unexpected off leash dog! Or even the expected on leash debacle! I can’t promise an always distraction free experience but if I can meet the need, I’ll move lots of things to make it happen. #reactivedogsmatter Expect to see me working around the property, potentially with a tractor. If I am working, I’ll try and give you a heads up and it’s usually easy to avoid me in such a large space. I’m happy to accommodate the needs of any guest dog while still being eager to get more building done everyday. I’m building portable water stations to place all around the property, giving more dogs access to fresh water on hot days. The 30 acre perimeter has been fenced with a strong hog-wire. It does a great job of keeping wildlife out and dogs safely inside. I am building 7 smaller spaces, within the 30 acres, ranging from 1.2 to 6 acre fully enclosed parks. Please communicate needs if your dogs are boundary sensitive to hearing dogs without being able to see them. I want every guest dog and emotional support human to feel delighted and uplifted for having visited Puppy Paradise. 🐶🤍

I live on the property with my pups and I’ve been surprised at how well they do navigating some of the cactus plants and thorns. We have yet to see to many hazards beyond tired legs from running. Every day, I invest several more hours to build up the vision for a puppy paradise in my mind.

    Beautiful area, fully fenced in and plenty of space for the dogs to run, sniff and explore. Very friendly and helpful owner. The pups love it, we’ll be back for sure!

  • Dina C., Mar 25, 2023

    We’ve become regulars here. Pretty sure it’s my dog’s favorite place.

  • Kayla M., Mar 25, 2023

    Couldn’t be happier with this place. I love the owner’s mission and first hand experience with needing a private area where dogs can be free to be dogs, without any concerns for triggers. My dog hasn’t been on a good off leash hike in months. I could tell he was thrilled to sniff and do his thing! We will absolutely be back again and are excited to watch this place grow!

    This is an amazing place for dogs to explore! My dogs had a blast. There are great trails that take you around the property. Lots of hills and rocks for the dogs to get some great exercise, and humans too! We did unexpectedly encounter the owners dogs, but he was very apologetic and quickly got his dogs inside and all the dogs did ok with the encounter. We plan to return!

    Host replied: Thank you for enjoying the spot! 🐶🤍

    Great spot

    Host replied: Thanks for the kind review! 🐶🤍

    This is probably the best sniffspot we’ve been to in Texas!! The host genuinely understood my dog’s fear of other dogs and how to secure the property. My dogs had the best time!! It was so great to just let them wander and sniff without any worry about other dogs and knowing the fence was secure enough. We kept the chi mix on leash as he isn’t used to being off leash in such a big area. But our girl girl did great!! I think the host’s neighbor’s dogs where out and my big girl did key in on it but she didn’t go crazy and my husband said the fence was secure in that area. She did get stuck with some needles from a cactus but that’s because she isn’t the most clever and not at all the host’s fault. Just something to keep in mind. My dog is totally fine and we pulled out the little needles when we got home. She wasn’t bothered at all. The host kept his dogs inside the whole time and we never even heard or saw them until they heard us leaving in the car. We will definitely be back!!

    Host replied: Love it!! So glad y’all came! Hopefully as we make more progress with our dog parks, we can also manage to have those areas kept clear of cactus species as well. And perhaps access to a couple dog first aid kits at the parks could help with the little nicks and scratches. Thanks for the thoughtful review and I’m so excited to keep improving the space for future visits. 🤍🌈

    The whole experience was a breeze! My pups had a blast and we were able to work on recall with only nature as a distraction! 10/10 would recommend!

    Host replied: Yay!! Thank you for helping us understand from the start how we could best support you and your pups. I look forward to your future visits. 🥰

  • Carina G., Mar 8, 2023

    Great area to let your dogs run and sniff. Fully fenced in. Beautiful scenery and a very friendly and helpful owner. We loved it and will be back soon. Thanks Jonnie!

    Host replied: Glad to have y’all visit! 😁

  • Shelby W., Mar 7, 2023

    We had a blast today and will continue to be back! So thankful for this space to let our dogs run free.

    Host replied: So glad you could visit again. 🤍🐶
