Dog Boarding

Our Upper Paw Pet Resort is located on the second floor of Austin Urban Vet Center and is a completely indoor facility. This ensures safety from some of the outdoor urban environments. While boarding, all pets stay and spend their nights in a suite, not a crate or portable. Each of our 23 suites are specifically catered to each guest, and our veterinary hospital is conveniently located downstairs if you would like any veterinary services performed during your pup’s stay.

We provide all of the essentials for a comfortable stay: Pet Cot, bedding, food and water bowls, and our house food (Royal Canine GI Low Fat). We love to keep our overnight canine guests entertained, and a webcam is available in each suite so you can check-in on your canine companion from your cell phone or computer any time.

All of our dogs use our indoor potty park that utilizes artificial turf. We arrive at 6:00am on weekdays to feed and potty each guest, and they play from 9am to 3:30pm (Monday - Friday). Dinner is served at 5pm with potty breaks lasting through 6pm.

You are welcome to bring items from home, such as beds, blankets, treats, and toys. However, we ask that you leave electronics, raw hides, or possible choke hazards at home for safety reasons. In addition, Upper Paw staff members are highly trained in administering medications if necessary.

You are more than welcome to give us any information about your canine family member that will help us make their stay more enjoyable!
