When it comes to maintaining a low-stress, harmonious environment for large numbers of dogs, experience matters.

Before we opened Howl n' Woof Dog Daycare in 2011, we already had a long, established history working with dogs professionally in other daycares, as dog trainers, as veterinary technicians, and as rescue volunteers. We didn't open a doggie daycare just because we loved dogs and thought it would be "fun" - we knew that we had the experience and knowledge to carefully design a daycare that would truly maximize the enrichment of your dog's behavior, mind, and body. Our policies and protocols are all aimed to meet this goal, and we continuously learn and evolve to make the experience even better. 

It's not enough for the dogs to just do "ok" or be "fine" when they are with us. We work to help each and every dog to thrive, so they come home to you happy, tired, and content after a long day of healthy, appropriate play, social interaction, and positive behavior.


Here are just some of the features that each Howl n' Woof guest receives:

  • playgroups always supervised by trained staff that actively ensure healthy play

  • staff are all certified in pet First Aid and CPR

  • personalized socialization protocol to match your dog appropriately by play style and size

  • daily behavior tracking and periodic reviews/adjustments of socialization protocol to ensure that your dog continues to thrive

  • over an acre of huge fenced yards - plenty of room for your dog to run and stretch their legs

  • honest feedback on your dog's behavior and experience

  • comfortable, quiet indoor areas for rest times

  • strict sanitary and health standards

  • reinforcement of appropriate behaviors, gentle but consistent discouragement of inappropriate ones

  • bath and nail trim available upgrades

  • training upgrades provided by South Austin Dog Center

  • convenient online appointment booking and management

  • and much more!

We are very thankful to our guests for allowing us to be a second-home to their beloved dogs. We take that responsibility very seriously and are very proud to provide South Austin with Dog Daycare, Done Right.
