Doggie Daycare & Playcare

Our play care program has LIMITED AVAILABILITY at this time. We are always accepting clients looking for play care on an as-needed basis! Please contact us at or at (737) 703-8424 for more information!

Our doggie playcare ($37 per day) is the perfect solution to your busy schedule. Upper Paw Pet Resort offers doggie daycare Monday through Friday. Playcare is a great way to keep your dogs entertained while you’re at work or just out and about for the day. Your pup will have a blast playing with other dogs and getting individual love, attention, and exercise from our team. Our playcare guests are always cared for according to their owner’s requests, and many of our guests have been coming for years!

Our trained staff supervises our play care at all times. Dogs are divided into two groups based on temperament, energy, and play style. These groups then rotate in and out of the playroom so everyone gets a great combination of play and rest. You’ll be taking home a happy and tired dog!

We take pride in our daycare service and want you to rest assured that your special friend is in good hands while under our care.

Important Notes:

  • Clients of Austin Urban Vet Center who have not attended Upper Paw before still need to undergo an enrollment and evaluation process. If you are not already an established client with Upper Paw, this is required in order to accommodate any drop-offs or same-day boarding.
  • If during evaluation day or at any point during your pet's stay, it is determined that your dog may not thrive in a playgroup with other dogs or could potentially pose a challenge to other dogs, we won't be able to accommodate them for future play care or boarding sessions. We appreciate your understanding in ensuring a safe and enjoyable environment for all our furry friends.
