  • Kit + Kaboodle
    A parade of customers saunters out of Kit + Kaboodle's Austin and Lockhart locations donning edgy mohawks, neon hair color, and sassy tattoos. This is not a group of teenagers from an ’80s flick, though. It's a pack of leashed corgis and everything about their look, including the hair dye and temporary tattoos, is nontoxic and tear-free. The technicians at Kit + Kaboodle love adorning pooches in such details. They groom dogs with organic and natural products and augment treatments with quirky trim such as handmade pup feathers. Their pet-sitting services include drop-ins and daily dog walks to exercise canines, administer medication, or refill food bowls while owners are at work or visiting their secret dogs.

  • Tiny Tails to You!
    The zookeepers and storytellers at Tiny Tails to You! travel from town to town to organize pop-up petting zoos four days a week, and lease out hands-on learning experiences for festivals, summer camps, and private parties. What beasts turn up at these parties is up to the customer, who might arrange for anything from an avalanche of fluffy bunnies and baby birds to an encampment of chinchillas, hedgehogs, leopard geckos, and tortoises. The staff's love for animals extends beyond informative show-and-tells—head zookeeper Ed Bradfield offers pet-sitting services for dogs, cats, exotic pets, and house-trained rocks, and the zookeepers are nearly always offering baby bunnies for adoption.

  • Happy Mailman
    Tail wagging is the sport of choice at Happy Mailman, a spacious local daycare facility where dogs are encouraged to socialize in a clean and positive environment. While owners go to work or on vacation, their dogs will be privy to up to nine hours of indoor and outdoor playtime, with breaks for eating and napping. Overnight visits include all daycare amenities plus an extra bathroom break before bedtime and a cozy spot to sleep and dream of finally catching that tail. And, for dogs in need of a little sprucing, Happy Mailman also offers basic grooming services, including baths and toenail trims.

  • Pup Pup Pooch
    Instead of "dog walkers," calling the team from Pup Pup Pooch "dog runners" would be more precise. Some dogs like to stroll; others could walk for hours and still get home and want to chase the Roomba. For these dogs, a crew member straps on running shoes and takes them for a run at their own pace, ensuring that they burn off that energy without overheating. Owners know when their pup leaves for their run with automatic email alerts, and GPS tracking systems offer real-time tracking of dog-walking routes.

  • Zoom Room Austin
    Zoom Room?s dog training facilities have one cardinal rule: owners must be present during class. This is because humans need just as much training as their canine companions when building confidence and communication, and it?s important that owners learn the best positive-reinforcement techniques from the knowledgeable staff. Group classes cover topics ranging from general obedience and agility training to more specific needs such as overcoming shyness. Other classes include Urban Herding, where dogs herd exercise balls into soccer goals indoors, Scent Work, where dogs learn to sniff out missing car keys or the TV remote, and Pup-lates, which is geared toward overweight or senior dogs, or those recovering from an injury. In fact, improving canine social skills is one of Zoom Room?s missions, as evidenced by the regularly hosted fundraiser events and Doggy Disco parties, which give dogs a chance to meet other dogs and expand away from their inner circle of fire hydrants. This combination of training and fun, in addition to the facility?s selection of solution-oriented training gear, natural dog treats, and functional dog accessories, has garnered an array of local and national press.

  • Firehouse Animal Health Center
    Firehouse Animal Health Center provides an extensive list of veterinary services for pets of all walks of life. Dog and cat owners can turn to Firehouse in search of simple checkups, diagnostic testing, vaccinations, dental care, and surgery. The on-staff veterinary team works together to diagnose and treat each patient, reflecting the clinic’s collaborative approach to making decisions about a pet’s health and whether or not it is actually the reincarnation of the Unsinkable Molly Brown. Pet parents can pick up prescribed medications on site, as the staff maintains a pharmacy replete with these remedies as well as nutritional supplements, shampoos, and flea and heartworm preventatives. Though a love of animals is an obvious prerequisite for a career in veterinary medicine, the staff at Firehouse Animal Health Center takes its dedication to four-legged companions a step further. Staff members regularly support animal charities and adoption centers, and they also provide complimentary initial health exams for animals adopted from Austin-area shelters and rescues.
