The best dog boarding facility we've ever used. They even put a Happy Birthday hat on our puppy (we were sadly out of town) and sent us photos on Benny's 2nd Birthday. We love this place!

My dog loves the one in lakeway off 620. And they seem to love her right back! Rosie always perks up when I drive by, and pouts when we don't stop!

My review of Taurus Academy on Burnet Rd : - the facilities were meticulously clean. No urine or feces seen and amazingly it didn't smell of dogs. - the multiple play yards are shaded and also had "doggie jungle-gyms", with stairs and ramps for the dogs to play on and under. Also each play yard has a kiddy pool for the dogs to play in. - the staff are actual dog trainers. They were all friendly and helpful. Each dog learns "door manners" as part of their protocol. -Air conditioned kennels are nice for "nap time". - all the d... read more

My dog has always had so much energy that I can't handle it when I get home tired and she wants a 10 mile run. So she goes to Taurus Academy. There are 5 locations in Austin.

They put dogs in play groups based on their play style and size (and if they like each other). You go for an evaluation day where they get to know you and your dog and how to meet your needs. They even have someone who loves there if ... read more

I have been taking my dog Wiley to the Metric location for almost 9 years and they have been fantastic the entire time. Recently, Wiley stayed with them for Memorial Day weekend and unfortunately became ill with a stomach virus. When it appeared that it might be more serious, their staff took him to an emergency vet in the middle of the night and ended up staying with him for over 2 hours. I later found out that the staff person, Cassie, has two young children so middle of the night hours where she could be sleeping are defi... read more
