Can't say enough positive things about this place! So glad we found it. Home-based but still very professionally run, it's the perfect combination and our dog is always excited to go in the morning. Most of the dog boarding and daycare places we looked at keep the animals kenneled for most of the day. We love that our energetic young lab comes home from Camp Zoo worn out and happy. Mark and Teri have been so accommodating of changes in our work schedule and communicative of what's going on during the day - love that they text us updates and videos. I feel totally comfortable leaving my boy with them when we are at work or out of town.

I looked online and came across many positive reviews for Camp Zoo and Pet Ranch. After visiting there to check it out, and having them meeting my dog to be sure she was good with their dogs, I made a reservation. Our Husky Mix stayed there for 13 nights. She had recently come half way across the country to live in Austin and was not happy to be dropped off for yet another change in life, but Mark and Teri quickly made her feel happy and comfortable.Throughout her stay we received several videos of our happy pup. The text communication was a nice touch, and reassuring. Drop-off and pick up were efficient. Mark and Teri are super-nice. She'll be back... : )

I have a very spoiled African Grey parrot 'Nigel' and Teri and Mark took great care of him.  Teri sent me a text with photos checking in, the dinner she made for Nigel is one any human would be lucky to eat. I was able to relax knowing he was well taken care of and when I picked Nigel up he was great.  I've been looking for a parrot sitter for some time and feel really grateful to have found Teri.  Thanks Teri and Mark!

I have a 5 year old lab mix who came from an abusive family that the police rescued him from and gave to me, so leaving him for two weeks to go to Ireland was nerve-racking to say the least. I actually work at a dog training facility and Austin but I knew he wouldn't do well in such a high stress environment so I had to search for new alternatives. That's when I came across Camp Zoo and Pet Ranch; they made me feel very at ease, their prices were competitive, and they were so nice and relaxed that it actually made the decision easy. While I was on my trip, I got text updates, photos, and video of him playing with the other dogs and lounging on the couch; it was such a great reminder when I was so far from him and really reassured me. Lastly, when I came back to pick him up it was so easy and I saw how excited he was around Terri and that he was actually bummed to leave her. It was really sweet! I don't think I can say enough good things about this place! Whenever I travel again, this is the first place I'll bring Charlie Brown!

Camp Zoo is an excellent alternative to traditional pet boarding! Mark and Teri take awesome care of our Augie. They are so attentive and send texts with pics to update us when we are away. The kids really appreciate the reassurance the pics provide letting them know their pup is having fun without them on the spacious grounds.  Unlike another place we boarded with small "runs," crates and dozens of dogs and warehouse like steel roof, the Camps welcome the pets into their home and give them plenty of love and attention. We noticed a significant difference in our pet when it came time for pick up the first time we boarded at Zoo. He was happy, healthy (no diarrhea from the stress of the place) and tired from all the play! Day care is great too because there is so much free play time and room to run on the grounds. No crazy extra fees for a 20 min recess from the crates or runs.  Hands down, Camp Zoo is the best pet day care and boarding home in South Austin!

We were immediately comfortable with Mark and Teri and their no kennel home environment approach for our dogs Mya and Wynn.  Our furry kids seemed to fit right into their pack and I cannot tell you how relieved I was to finally find a wonderful place to board our dogs!  We had looked at many other boarding facilities that we were not happy with and were so glad that a neighbor recommended Camp Zoo & Pet Ranch.  We received daily texts, pictures and updates while we were on our vacation that totally put our minds at ease.  
I highly recommend Camp Zoo & Pet Ranch and have been spreading the word to all other dog owners in our neighborhood.  These guys are awesome and we will exclusively use Camp Zoo & Pet Ranch in the future.
Thank you Mark and Teri, you guys ROCK!

We found Camp Zoo & Pet Ranch online while visiting Austin for a few days with our English Bulldog. Mark and Teri were awesome and took great care of our boy "B" while we enjoyed some time out on the town. They are great people and true animal lovers and will take great care of your pets. We will definitely use them on our next visit to Austin.
