Emily was really great! She took great care of Migo, sent lots of pictures, and always updated me. I will book her again! And I’m a nervous, protective dog mom :)

Back Yard Dog Park

I run Back Yard Dog Park out of my home full time. My boyfriend Nick and I are experienced dog owners and animal lovers that would love to have your pup come and enjoy our little doggy retreat. I was raised up around dogs, dog trainers and dog lovers. We have two dogs ourselves, Ladybird and Spider, both from Austin Pets Alive!. We love to go hiking and swimming as much as we like a ...

What Emily would like to know about your dog

I always want to know these basic things:
Breed/ Weight / Age
Eating schedule (grazer or scheduled?) what time you normally wake up?
Are they crate trained? how often do you use the crate?
Where do they sleep, and where are they when you're not home?

I do have breed preferences to an extent, I am normally wary of pure bred Australian Shepherds and other high energy breeds, but always give your pup a chance and do a meet and greet!

When Emily watches your pet

We try and keep our activities at home, however some of our regular clients that we host weekly will come out to Red Bud Isle or the Greenbelt with us. We have a lovely loop to walk in our neighborhood, however our yard is our ultimate source of doggy exercise and play.
