My dog Cici has been going to Pawderosa Ranch for a while now and absolutely loves it. She gets so excited when she knows she is going there for the day. The staff is wonderful... professional, friendly, and just all-around great! They all clearly love the dogs and treat them like their own. The fact that the dogs get to play off a leash is so great because Cici comes home tired and worn out. She has been socialized there (more than I could do for her just walking her and playing with her at home). Give Pawderosa Ranch a try... you won't be disappointed! It is so great to have somewhere to take Cici when I know we will be gone all day. She gets to play and I don't have to worry about her being lonely or tearing something up while we are gone for an extended time. If you want a happy dog, take him/her to Pawderosa Ranch!
- General Info:
- Established in 2006 Pawderosa Ranch is a locally-owned company that was started by San Antonio Native Kim Smith and Atlanta-born "Got to Texas as fast as I could" Mike Mitchell. Mike was raised in Atlanta but after college, he served our country with the USMC. After his service, he moved back to Atlanta and decided that playing with dogs all day was just what he needed.Having lived in Atlanta for a few years after college, Kim discovered the fun that was "off-leash play" for dogs. She decided it was time to move back home and offer San Antonio pups the same excitement and socialization opportunity. Our Airport location was opened in 2006 and Schertz was opened in 2008.Both locations have been host to hundreds of wonderful dogs and their fabulous families. We have enjoyed many great times with them all. Though we knew there would be challenging times in starting this venture from the ground up, we grabbed the dog by the tail and have created an enviroment that your dog will love. Come play!

Pawderosa really came through for me and my pet. My regular sitter was out of town and my work schedule changed unexpectedly. I called Pawderosa...no problem! they took my care of my pooch everyday of my sitter's absence. I was so thrilled with the experience, that I have made plans to send my pup there several times a week. He always comes home ""dog"" tired ... I love it! Having my dog at Pawderosa gives me a sense of relief knowing that he is not only getting to use up all his stored energy, but that he is continually socialized with other animals and he is be attended to by humans as well. He gets the best of both worlds. Thank you Pawderosa!
After 20 minutes of telling me how wonderful their 'ranch' was and finally asking me for my pets information, I was asked if my dog was 'fixed".... When I report, no he was not, I was told "We dont keep dogs that are not fixed, and hung up on me!
Pawderosa Ranch offers an exceptional doggie day care play and stay for dogs. The grounds are always beautiful and the staff truly care about dogs. They play with the dogs and make sure they go home tired and ready to relax. The overnight kennels are super clean and roomy. I feel safe knowing that Jack is in good hands while im on the road or at work. I highly recommend this facility for all of your doggy daycare needs.
I have taken my dog Jack to Pawderosa Ranch for some time now. The employees always treat the dogs in thier care as if they were thier own, and give them the greatest of care. The services offered by this business are exceptional and always above and beyond the norm.

My dog, Maya, loves ""The Ranch"". She enjoys playing and socializing with other non-aggressive dogs. She has overnighted there many times and I believe she looks forward to her visits. We have also used the dog day care option - half or full day. The facility is definitely geared to ""dog"" and ""dog"" people will recognize this immediately. The facility offers a self-serve dog wash or you can have the staff do it for you. If your dog stays more than a couple of nights - it would be a good thing to have a bath scheduled before pickup ....... as their warning reads "" your dog will get dirty here""! I also feel comfortable knowing that there is a webcam to view dogs at play and that there is someone there 24/7. This is a great ""resort"" for your dog - try it - especially if you don't like your dog kenneled in a vet clinic. There's also another facility in Schertz if the San Antonio airport location is not convenient .....
Maya gives it two paws up!
My dog has been coming to Pawderosa Ranch since 2006 and I can’t say enough good things about this great place. She goes crazy whining as soon as we pull onto the street and can’t wait to see her friends, and she is always happy and exhausted when I pick her up. She goes for daycare weekly and also has been boarded a few times. I feel great never having to worry about her as I can always watch her on the cameras which gives me proof that she is being cared for and happy. Owners Mike & Kim are wonderful people and their staff are always great with the dogs. Let your doggies check out Pawderosa Ranch, you won’t be disappointed.
My dog loves Pawderosa! She runs up to the door and can't wait to play all day. I love the fact that I know my dog is safe and well taken care of at Pawderosa. The staff is very friendly and the location and hours are great for me. Highly recommended.
We've been bringing our terrier mix to Pawderosa since shortly after they opened in 2006 and have never been disappointed. Our dog's tail starts wagging like crazy when she realizes she's going to "The Ranch" (usually right after we turn off Nakoma) and she’s dog tired by the end of the day from playing so hard. They take great care of our dog, whether she's there for doggie day care or for an extended stay when we're out of town. One of the few places that isn't prejudiced against "difficult" breeds -- they'll accept any breed as long as your dog is well socialized. Their Bark-n-Ride program is wonderful for when we need to drop of our dog before going to the airport (and saves us a ton on airport parking). The owners, Mike & Kim, hold GREAT dog-&-owner parties for Halloween and St. Patty's.

When my dog gets in my car, she knows that she's headed for her favorite place...Pawderosa Ranch! She goes for doggie daycare and loves every minute of it. I know she loves it because I watch her on their webcam from work and see her playing with their friendly staff and playing with the other dogs. I highly recommend Pawderosa Ranch to anyone looking for a great place to keep their dogs.
