When we moved to Austin a year ago, we knew we wanted a kennel-free environment for our 3 year old yorkie when we needed to board him. What we found was his new home-away-from-home! Never before did Dodger, our ""rambunctious"" pup, enjoy being boarded; he always seemed anxious and upset when we dropped him off at other places. But now when we pull up to Xtreme K9 his ears perk up, his tail starts wagging, and he can't WAIT to get in there and start playing with all of his new friends! The staff, too, are all extremely friendly, not only to me but also to Dodger. They know him by name and handle him very well; it's really obvious that they truly love dogs and want to keep them happy. This is the only boarding facility we will take him to now, as he loves it so much, and we feel that he is not only safe but also having a really great time while he's there. The hours of operation are convenient as well; they're even open for pick-up and drop-off on Sundays, when some other kennels are not. I could not be more pleased with Xtreme K9, and though it's a 30 minute drive for us, we think it's worth every mile. All dogs - big and small - who enjoy being around people and other dogs will enjoy staying here; our Dodger definitely does!!
Pros: Customer service, value, peace of mind!
Cons: It's located in Pflugerville, which is not convenient for some. Though we drive the 30 min. b/c we think it's worth it!
