You might be stuck at work, but that's no reason for your pup to stay cooped up all day - send your furry friend for a frolicking good time in our acres of dog pasture!
Regular daycare can help insure your dog receives the necessary exercise, stimulation, and socialization he or she needs to thrive - when your schedule prevents you from giving your dog all the TLC they need, we've got your back.

Around 50% of dogs will experience separation-related anxiety at some point during their lives 1 - and while some dogs can tolerate time alone better than others, many leading animal welfare experts believe that leaving dogs alone during the work week can take a toll on your pet's mental and physical health2. When your busy schedule keeps you from giving your dog as much time and attention as you'd like, we've got your back, insuring that your pup gets the necessary human and canine contact, as well as the required exercise and stimulation, to thrive.

Just because you're stuck inside all day doesn't mean your dog can't enjoy a full day of frolicking in our acres of dog pasture. We've converted 7 acres of former cattle land into a little slice of Puppie Heaven in East Austin - so close - yet so far out.
Our mission is to apply best-practices derived from the rapidly advancing field of canine science, and we're dedicated to a positive approach to animal care. Our animal assessment and care procedures have been designed by our founder, Dr. Poling, DVM.
When you have to leave your furry friend behind, we've got you covered.Every guest receives personalized care, hours of supervised outdoor play in our spacious pastures, and quality time spent relaxing in one of our luxury kennels. Weather-permitting, our goal is to keep dogs outdoors and active for as much time as possible.

In order to insure personalized care and a safe environment for all guests, we'll need to get to know your pet a bit before your first stay with us.Here's what we'll need to insure a safe & enjoyable stay for your pet - click below for more information:
We require proof of current vaccines for distemper, DHLLP, rabies, canine influenza, and bordetella before we can confirm your stay at the Ranch. Any guests arriving without current vaccination records will be turned away.
In order to insure that every dog in our care gets the most enjoyment out of playtime, we first assess each dog's temperement and personality to insure that dogs are paired with compatible playmates. This helps insure a safe and fun social occasion for everyone. First-time guests will be evaulated as part of their vist before being introduced to a playgroup.
We reserve the right to refuse any animal that we believe jeopardizes the safety of the other animals in our care or our staff.
At East Side Pet Ranch, we strive to make your dog feel right at home. We can insure that your pet maintains their usual diet, administer any needed medication, help manage any potential sources of anxiety, and accomodate almost any need. Please make sure to advise us of any special care instructions we will need to be aware of in order to insure your animal's wellbeing.
All dogs over 18 months of age must be spayed or neutered.
We reserve the right to charge for the full cost of daycare for any cancellations made within less than 24 hours of your reservation or for any no-shows.
