– EST. 2010 –

Our pets are our family, and we want the best quality care for our furry family members. When you go on vacation, it sure is nice to know that Fido is getting the ultimate care so you can truly enjoy yourself!

Pups that come to Barking Springs for dog daycare or overnight boarding get to hang out in 4 acres of play yards allowing for off-leash play with other dogs. Dogs need space to run around, and that’s what makes us unique! When you arrive back from vacation or home from the office, your dog will be just as tired as you are after a day of daycare or boarding.

We know when you are choosing a day care or boarding facility, convenience matters too. We are located just 8 miles east of Austin Bergstrom International Airport. We also offer a shuttle service where we come to you to pick up your dog and after-hours pick-up. Come see what makes us so unique to other dog hotels and boarding facilities. For questions about our services or to schedule a tour, you may email us at or call us at 512-444-9000 (office) or text/call 512-293-4856 (cell).

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

Kobe loves Barking a Springs so much, and I love their daily updates and pictures! It’s so great that the dogs get to run around the ranch during the day, and get their own bedrooms (no kennels!) to sleep in at night! This place is amazing, and he owners and employees are awesome! We will never take our fur children anywhere else!

Mellisa V.

We called upon Barking Springs to find a service that would take our ailing dog, Rowdy, into their home so he didn’t have to be kenneled. Barking Springs was fantastic! They followed all of our directions and cared for our dog as if he was their own. Simply, Barking Springs is the best and we’re thrilled to have them help us care for our dog.

Vicki Hodson.

Barking Springs has taken care of my most treasured possession, Baxter, many times. The only complaint I have is that I think he likes Jessica more than he likes me! He always has fun with her, and she takes him on special outings. He is even more spoiled when I get home than he was when I left him…..and, that’s pretty spoiled.
