  first day! 

       Wag N Heel started in 2015 as a hobby with the purpose of having dog friends over for Emily's dog, Spider. Within a few weeks we gained a small clientele base. We were asked if we could do daycare and said "why not?". We were asked about doing in home visits and, again, said "why not?". We surely and steadily gained clients through word of mouth. after one year, Emily and Nick quit their jobs to take over the business full time and 

"Back Yard Dog Park" was born.


From 2015 to 2019 we hosted over 500 individual dogs and had over 1000 individual bookings at our home in South Austin. in December 2019 we took the next step and found the perfect property to expand our vision and bring

 Wag N Heel ranch to life.​


We are taking the pandemic with heavy precaution and have contact free pick up and drop off available upon request. this has been a trying year for all of us. We are thankful to our incredible client base for not only our growth over the last 5 years but also for ensuring our small business survives this. we owe it all to you and your furry companions.
