About Geoff

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home, so your dogs will have someone with them all day, and our dog Bubba LOVES other dogs! He is friendly, welcoming, submissive, and sharing. Our house is easy to get to in south Austin, with nearby exits at 35/Oltorf and 71/Burleson! We also live less than 15 minutes to the airport, making your drop off and pickup super easy if you are flying out of town.

Both my wife and I have travelled extensively, some with and some without our dogs. We understand where you're at when looking for a place for your fur babies to stay. We've done our best to provide a home that our dog and his new friends can be comfortable in, all the time.

During the day there are many opportunities for adventure. We are just blocks from Mabel Davis Park if they are more active. If they are more of the homebody type, we have a big backyard with a secure privacy fence. Our property backs up to Green Belt, so we are surrounded by trees. When the weather is hot we either head to the river, or stay inside in the A.C. The pups loves our stained concrete floors on the first level in the summer cause they can get really cold!

When it's time for bed, whatever arrangements they like are fine with us. If they prefer their crate in a quiet place, or their bed in our room, it's ALL GOOD! Bubba usually sleeps with us in our king bed for a little bit, but if your dog can squeeze in too then they are more than welcome. :^)

I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

I would REALLY prefer if we can meet your dog(s) before staying with us, but I understand that sometimes emergencies come up and that may not be possible. Only in certain circumstances and at my discression will I accept a reservation for a dog I have not met.

If you try us once, you'll be back again!

Rates:
Boarding Rates include drop off & pick up within a 24 hour period.
Daycare Rates include drop off between 8-10am & Pick Up between 5-7pm.
If pick up or drop off is outside of these times you will be charged an additional $25.

**WHEN YOU BOOK PLEASE NOTE YOUR PICK UP AND DROP OFF TIMES SO WE CAN ADJUST YOUR STAY AND YOU DON'T HAVE ANY SURPRISES AT CHECK OUT. WE AIM TO KEEP ALL OWNERS AND PETS HAPPY :-)!**

Harry had a great time.....good place for him.
Geoff was awesome, very informative beforehand on how my dog's stay would go. Would absolutely have Fi stay with him once more
Geoff's awesome!!! He met us up at a local park so the dogs could meet before their first play date. He has a large, well cared for lawn that the dogs can play in, and he sent us update pics throughout the day. Definitely recommend and will book again.
