What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Owner-operator JoAnn Dodson dreamed of having a dog daycare and boarding facility for years. JoAnn chose to open her facility in East Plano because she has lived and worked in that community for 15 years. JoAnn has had dogs in her life since childhood and always will!
What do you love most about your job?
Spending our day playing with your dogs is incredibly fun and rewarding. Each dog has a unique personality, and we love learning how to make each dog feel at ease.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
"You are certainly in the right business because you love dogs!"
The scene is a familiar one: hotel guests lounge beside the outdoor pool as staff members filter around, offering refreshments or collecting clients for a spa treatment. However, at Pet Paradise, the pool is bone shaped and all the guests are dogs. This luxurious scene is one cat and dog owners can find at this boarding and daycare facility that has been owner Fred Goldsmith's pride and joy for a decade. The animal lover was inspired to start his own pet hotel when he simply couldn’t find a place he was comfortable leaving his bichon frise when he went on vacation.
Fred made Pet Paradise to his exact specifications, and the pet hotel's amenities reflect the loving care he lavishes on his own beloved pup. Dogs and cats can luxuriate in spa-quality grooming treatments or burn off some energy during group playtime. In the evening, pets can settle into plush bedding and feel safe knowing that the dedicated live-in staff resides just a bark away. Nocturnal kitties spend the night exploring their own private six-level cat condos while gentle spa music fills the air to keep them entertained. In case of any emergencies, Pet Paradise keeps veterinarians on-call, and in the event of a snack emergency, each staff member is a certified bacon cook.
