About Courtney

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Come join us for a day (or night) of play! We are a laid back, pet friendly and loving home! We have a spacious and luscious backyard and our home is close to a park and trail. Located in beautiful South Austin, your dog is sure to get a lot of love (and probably snuggles) from a home they will for sure feel comfortable in! Can't wait to meet your adorable furry friends and be sure to book your pup with us Gals! They'll love us as much as we love them! There are 3 adults in the house so there will always be someone home to keep an eye on your pet! We also have a 4year old toddler in the home so your pet must be okay with kids. Murphy is our 4 year old dog who is small and super sweet with other dogs.

Colleen and Courtney offer nannying and house cleaning services as well, so inquire with us and we can help you in anyway that we can!

Great last minute find! I had to travel without much notice and I just recently moved back to Austin so I didn't have many options..I found Courtney on this site and she and her roommate came through for me. My dogs were spoiled (in a good way) and I knew they were being well cared for. I received pictures throughout my trip and could tell the dogs were happy. I highly recommend Courtney and Colleen to dogsit. They love dogs and it shows!
Colleen & Courtney were absolute awesome with my dog Buster. They allowed us into their house to see where Buster would be staying, they updated me with pictures everyday, and even allowed Buster to snuggle with them on their couches. Buster is already missing Colleen and Courtney, and will be staying with them the next time I go on vacation.
Thank you Courtney for taking care of Sofie. The pictures and updates were helpful and certainly put us at ease as this was her first time with you. She is always engaged with her surroundings so your family setting was perfect for her.
Courtney was awesome with my dog!
Courtney and Colleen did such a great job! I have a special needs senior and I felt completely comfortable leaving him with them! They sent me frequent updates and picture messages of him having a great time with their sweet little dog, Murphy, and the other dog that was staying with them. I can't wait to use them again!
Very friendly and caring. Our dog had a great time!
Though the puppy could not talk, she clearly had a good stay judging by her smile and demeanor when we picked her up. Thanks Courtney.
Charlie loved his stay with Courtney and Colleen. He made himself right at home and settled in nicely as was evident in the photos that were forwarded to me over the weekend. Everyone was extremely nice and made me feel very comfortable leaving Charlie in their care. I will definitely use them again in the future.
Great experience!
We left our ball of energy Kash with Courtney and Colleen for 9 days while we were away on vacation. They kept us well informed with daily photos and updates on how he was doing, which provided a nice peace of mind while we were away. They have an awesome dog Murphy who is about the same size as Kash so they became best friends. We completely recommend them and will be bringing Kash back for sure! If you've traditionally boarded your pup and are considering booking with Courtney and Colleen for the first time just do it. Boarding is like dog jail so let your fur baby take a DogVacay while you're away. You won't regret it!
Courtney and Colleen took amazing care of my pups! While I was gone, I felt like I really didn't have to worry about them at all. They had free range of the house and backyard just like they were at home. And Courtney and Colleen respected any training we already had in place. When I picked up the pups, they were of course happy to see me, but you could tell they were happy with Courtney and Colleen. I will definitely be a repeat customer!
Courtney and Colleen were amazing hosts to our lovable chihuahua Saint. They were extremely flexible, responsive, and easy going which made me and my wife feel very much at ease. We were extremely pleased with the attention and love our
pet received during his weekend stay. Will definitely use them again!!
Max had a great time! Hoping to use her again soon! He came back very happy :)
Courtney and Colleen were amazing dog sitters! Courtney was extremely accommodating and was super easy to communicate with. Ronin fell in love with the big back yard and of course Murphy, he is such a friendly little guy! We will definitely be using them again and again! Ronin misses them already! Thank again guys!!
Courtney and Colleen petsat my two cats while I was out of town. They did an awesome job. They came over before I left to pick up the garage door opener and meet the cats. They patiently listened while I told them about the cats habits, the poo container and how to empty it and a request to water the plants on the porch. I texted them with things I forgot and they texted right back. They also texted photos of the cats while I was gone. They did an excellent job and I have already referred 2 other people to them. Plus they were very affordable.
Courtney was so helpful, flexible, and friendly. She really catered to our two pups and made them (and us!) feel so comfortable. We got multiple videos and photos and could tell they were having a blast...and probably didn't want to come home! We will certainly be booking with Courtney again the next time we go out of town!
Courtney and friends were amazing! I felt that Roland was very loved while I was out of town. They sent updates (with photos) on a regular basis, and even sent videos of the dogs chasing each other around their large back yard. When it was time for me to pick up my puppy they gave him a bath to get rid of any mud that had been on him. I will definitely be calling Courtney again in the future!
Courtney and her roommate were amazing. Juno had the best time and was taken care of. I loved the photos and the updates throughout the day. I appreciate having such reliable care for my pup when work gets busy.
I was looking for someone to host my friend's pet while she was in the hospital and came across Pup Gals and Tails! I was nervous because I am not a dog person, but I needed to find a good place for my friend's dog to stay. I was so stressed and Courtney and her roommates agreed to take him. They were SOOOO nice and understanding and helpful with everything. PLUS they responded so quick since I was looking last minute. They completely saved me and helped out so much. She even sent pictures to me and my friend. This helped my friend so much while she was in the hospital and took a huge load of stress off of her shoulders. I literally cannot thank them enough. I have already recommended them to several friends. They are incredible, good hearted, dog loving people!!!! Your pet would be lucky to stay with them.
The girls were great! I slept well in San Diego knowing my rotty was well taken care of. They provided me with pictures along the way and even gave her a few baths!
Another great DogVacay experience. Courtney, Colleen, Courtney's daughter, and their dog Murphy took such great care of my senior pug. I felt so at ease leaving him there in their care. He was very loved, and I'm so grateful. Thank you! Totally recommend this DogVacay!
Our dog had a great stay with Courtney and crew. Not sure he wanted to come home, actually.
This was our first DogVacay experience and we couldn't have picked a better person to watch Shadow. I'd highly recommend booking her for your pets stay. :)
We are always nervous about leaving our timid dog Ginger with strangers, but our experience booking with Courtney and Colleen could not have been more perfect! Ginger had such a great time running around the yard with their dog. We were sent lots of photos of Ginger making herself at home. On the last day, we were given a report of the food she did/didn't eat and of her overall experience with them. It was great. Definitely felt more relaxed on our trip knowing that Ginger was in great hands. Highly recommended!
This was Leo's first dog vacay ever, and Courtney and Colleen (her roommate) were absolutely amazing! They treated my boy just like their own pup, Murphy, (who is absolutely adorable!) and even let Leo have bed privileges! I received text responses instantly, and the daily updates Courtney sent were in the perspective of Leo, which was very cute. Another perk was the huge backyard they have, Leo's a Whippet and can't go a day without running around and playing fetch. Him and Murphy got along exceedingly well and were best friends by the end of the stay. Courtney also ensured me that someone was always at the house, there was no reason to bring a crate for Leo because he had 24/7 supervision. I will definitely be using her service again in the future!
