My dogs were provided a complimentary stay at Barking Springs Dog Ranch. All opinions are my own.
With all our family’s travel, we don’t always have easy options for taking care of our two pugs, Bear and Rolo, when we’re gone. We recently found a dog boarding option here in Austin that’s not only super convenient (located near Austin-Bergstrom Airport and even offering shuttle service from your home), but is also practically a vacation for our dogs as well: Barking Springs Dog Ranch! Bonus – their prices are great! Keep reading to learn more about why Barking Springs should be your first choice for dog boarding in Austin.
What sets Barking Springs apart from other Austin dog boarding
Not all dog boarding options are created equal! You want to know that your pups are well-cared for and loved at their home-away-from-home. Barking Springs, located on a ranch with a huge amount of outdoor play space in addition to their clean indoor sleeping areas, is different than other Austin dog boarding options in that they offer:
- All day play
- Multiple play yards (separate for large and small dogs)
- Individual sleep rooms separated by walls (not fencing)
- Late night pickup available
- Shuttle service for dog pick up

Cost for dog boarding in Austin
From our experience, Barking Springs Dog Ranch has some of the best prices for dog boarding in Austin. This is especially important if you have multiple dogs like we do, as the cost of dog boarding can really add up with two dogs! Not only are their prices great, Barking Springs has a discount for multiple dogs! See current pricing on their website here.
Why we love Barking Springs Dog Ranch for boarding or dog daycare in Austin
While the price is important, even more important when choosing a dog kennel for boarding is that the dogs will be treated well. With Barking Springs, we felt that they had a real love for our pups (and all the other dogs in their care). We also loved the amount of communication we received from them. While we were on vacation we received text message updates with photos nearly every day to let us know how our dogs were doing. This made us feel comfortable that our pugs were having fun playing and meeting new dog friends. They were also great about communication before and after the stay, answering all our questions and checking how Bear and Rolo were doing after returning home.
We recommend Barking Springs, and would gladly use their services again when we travel. Book your pet’s stay at Barking Springs Dog Ranch here.
