Dog Boarding and Training in Austin TX

Conveniently drop your pets for luxury boarding right off of I-35 on your way to the Austin airport. We are ready to welcome local pets during flexible hours so that owners can conveniently drop pets near downtown Georgetown, Round Rock, and surrounding areas.

Ponderosa is celebrating 10 years serving the local Georgetown and Round Rock communities. Owner Phillip Paris is a trusted Georgetown resident, having been a Georgetown police officer for 15 years before starting the first local dog training company.

We are very active on social media so you can see your pet and all their local pet friends having a great time while you work in Georgetown—your dog may even be the Ponderosa Dog of the Month!

You can trust owner Phillip Paris and his staff, as he also owns and operates local company Phillip Paris Consultants, which offers training and consulting specifically to optimize other pet businesses.

Specific local vouchers for training and boarding would be great to offer here, as well, as I see a recent voucher sale posted on the Facebook page.

Understanding Our Rates:  We are a social facility in which dogs are allowed to interact with each other in supervised, social play groups.  Any dog who is not social will not be placed into play / social groups.  We include this in your daily rate.  Other facilities will charge up to $10 – $30 per day for this, as it requires highly trained and adequate staff to understand dog behavior.  It’s a part of who we are and our staff is highly trained and committed to safe play!

Fees:  We operate like a human hotel.  Check out Monday – Friday is by 12 Noon.  We allow late check-outs Monday – Friday at a rate of $20 per dog.  This fee is to cover the care your dog is getting until you pick up prior to closing.

Sundays: Sundays are a premium day.  Many facilities will close the office on Sunday and force clients to board an additional night.  We realize that this can be an inconvenience for most, so we’ve decided all along that we will be open on Sunday afternoon from 4-6 PM for pick-ups.  We do charge a $20 per dog fee for any and all pick-ups on Sunday.  This fee covers the additional staffing needed for Sunday afternoons along with the care your dog receives.

See below for detailed boarding options, tailored for your pet.  We also have great add-ons to enhance your pets fun while with us.  Everything from extra walks, private play-time, greenies, puppy ice-cream, stuffed Kongs, splash pool time and more.  You’ll see all of our great add-ons when you check in.

SAVE MONEY!  Twice per year we offer crazy savings to our clients in the form of pre-paid vouchers.  This allows you to save big money by purchasing vouchers for $1OO and in return, you get $12o to spend with us.  This money sits in your account and never expires.  So, be looking for these sales on Thanksgiving Night and in May!
