Important update about Skipper operations in Austin:

As of 9/20/19, Skipper will no longer be providing pet care services in Austin. 

We are happy to refer you to Walk! ATX Pet Care for the best pet care available in the area!

Walk! ATX Pet Care has been a member of the Austin community for over 8 years. They offer a host of dog walking options, as well as day camp, boarding, and in-home sitting options at competitive prices. Like Skipper, Walk! ATX performs a consultation with clients and their pups before beginning service, and sends out visit reports following each visit. Most importantly, Walk! ATX matches Skipper’s standard for professionalism, customer service, and convenience. 

When you sign up with Walk! ATX Pet care, you’ll receive $20 in free credit!

Ditch the dog guilt!

Sign Up For Skipper
  • “It makes a huge difference to know that they’re well taken care of, even if it’s not by me. My days are like 52 card pickup and sometimes I just can’t make it home to get them out. It makes me feel so good to have an extended family in Skipper to support us.”
    Corri with Beef & Baby

  • “When work gets crazy and I can’t give Sonny the attention he needs, I have Skipper to take care of him. If Skipper went away, I would be in a panic. You truly are a lifeline for us. I couldn’t imagine what I would do without you.”
    Trent with Sonny

  • “I love Skipper and so does my pup, Marni! Their walkers and booking systems are top-notch and everyone who works for them really loves the animals they help care for. Marni is young and incredibly active, and they do a great job helping her expel some of her energy while I’m at work.”
    Lauren with Marni

  • “Skipper is a cut above the rest. What they provide for all your pets, at the pricing that they do – it’s unbeatable. The pictures, written report and ease of ability to schedule online makes scheduling out an appointment for my dogs extremely easy for my busy life. Not only that, the owners and walkers are all clearly passionate about pets, and that is what is most important!”
    Katrina with Zoey, Bullet, & Carmella
