55Awesome place and host! And animals! My dog had a lot of fun, almost made friend with little baby goat.
55Lauren is so kind and accommodating! Pups had a great time running amok, splashing in the pond, and rolling in the wildflowers.
55Great spot, even better host! Will definitely be back.
55Fantastic place! Lauren is awesome! We will be back again!!
55Beautiful and quiet spot! We visited with our dog Opie, who is reactive towards other dogs. He had a great time sniffing around, exploring, and dipping his feet in the pond. We loved this spot and Lauren, the host, personally welcomed us and showed us the layout once we arrived. She is very sweet! There is a secure fenced area so your dog can go off leash and explore. Opie isn't the most interested in toys, but there were lots of toys around if your dog likes to play with them. Also if your dog likes to run around there is a lot of space to do that as well! Opie is a sniffer and did just that the whole time. There was a hose and tub available as well, and a nice relaxing shady spot if you want to take a seat. This was our first sniff spot experience and loved every minute of it.
55It was amazing! Our dog was so happy running around and playing in the pond. Will definitely be back!
55Absolutely beautiful area. Completely secured. Much land to explore. Items for keeping clean. Area to cool off. We need to book more time, and we will definitely return. The owner is amazing and kind and thoughtful. I could continue, but I recommend you check out for yourself!
55We call this spot Doggy Disney World! Our 2 reactive pups love it here. We got our doberman 2 years ago from the shelter and it’s the first time we’ve been able to just let her run and use those long legs and to our surprise, she loved the water! We’ve been twice now and the girls already know where we’re at on the drive there.😍 Lauren is the best host too! Great communication and very kind. After our girls do some swimming, the dog wash is perfect for a quick lil bath and then our girls can just nap the rest of the day. We look forward to booking here again and again 🫶
55the owner of this property is just the sweetest! It's also such a lovely property.
55This place is just lovely! It's super peaceful and safe for the dogs. Lauren was super kind and having the ability to rinse the dogs there was fantastic. We'll be back again

Our place is a beautiful animal-oriented property. It is technically a working ranch with cows, sheep, goats, chickens and horses (many cross fenced areas so livestock can be separated from dogs or not). Ideally suited for doggie fun, we have a combination of open space and "wooded" areas and there's a great pond for dogs to cool off and play. We have plans to add agility obstacles in the near future. For a great overnight getaway, we also have a guest house that can be rented. Best of all, we are located 30 minutes from Austin and San Marcos.
