Dogs need space to run around, play and….be dogs.   With 4 acres, our Austin boarding facility has lots of outdoor space for Off-Leash Play.  When the day is over, your dogs have their own, private sleeping den in a climate controlled individual room after a long day at the ranch.

All overnight boarding guests receive off-leash play on 4 acres of cross fenced yards at no extra charge.

All dogs picked up after 12 pm Monday through Saturday will be charged a day of daycare.

Dog Daycare

Dog’s aren’t meant to sit in a cage all day while you are away. Barking Springs Dog Ranch has ample space for dogs to play and exercise. Bring your dog in for a tour and see what life on the ranch is like everyday of the week.

Each day, dogs play in the morning, rest in climate controlled areas from 12:00pm until 2:00 pm, then afternoon play, dinner and potty breaks.  We have several separate yards to make sure dogs are with other dogs of similar size and temperament.

All overnight guests receive off leash play on 4 acres of cross fenced yards at no extra charge.

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 the 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.
