"I recently adopted a rescue dog and use Happy Milkman for dog daycare."
"A little out of the way, great service and friendly staff."
"The one downfall is its location, which is way way south of Austin."

Best dog daycare in Austin! I take my dog to Happy Mailman on S Lamar and he comes back with no injuries and is happy and tired as can be! We had a very bad incident with another day care place in town and were scared to try a new one, but Happy Mailman has been nothing but awesome for our little pooch. Highly recommend!!

I recently adopted a rescue dog and use Happy Milkman for dog daycare. Everyone is very friendly, truly dog lovers, and our dog loves going there. She comes home exhausted, happy and appears to not have much seperation anxiety as she loves her time there. Zach has done a great job of getting the right people.

Amazing place to bring your four-legged best friend. The owner and staff are exceedingly pleasant and greatly accommodating, the space is large (indoor and outdoor) and conducive to play for large and small dogs, and the price is better than even those boarders/sitters offering less amenities. Happy Mailman offers full-on grooming which you can customize to your needs, one on one attention with your animal, and PLENTY of playtime. Our pup comes home totally wiped for at least a day after his return. You can really tell he loves it there. As soon as we pull up he starts going "we're someplace awesome" crazy. He knows the owner and the owner knows him. There is someone onsite 24 hours a day, so you never have to worry about your buddy being alone. It's really just an amazing place that I can't say enough good things about. The one downfall is its location, which is way way south of Austin. But if you're looking for an excellent place to keep your animal, it's more than well worth the trip. Seriously, you can stop looking. This is where you want your best friend to stay.

My pups absolutely LOVE going to Happy Mailman!! They know exactly where they are when we pull in and the excited barking begins :) Whitney has been amazing with our dogs and also from a customer service standpoint. She is always so welcoming and so nice! I cannot say enough good things about HM and the staff.

A little out of the way, great service and friendly staff. If you want your dogs to go on vacation when you do and dont think they need $20 spa bonus meals or $15 once a day walks then this is the place for you.

My dog does not easily get along with other dogs and has serious attachment issues. However, the staff at Happy Mailman take really good care of her and somehow convince her to play with other dogs. She's stayed overnight twice already, and each time she did not want to come home! You can tell the staff really cares about the dogs. They're very attentive with both the canines and the customers. They always answer their phone and reply to emails. They are definitely worth the 1/2 hour drive there!

As newcomers to Austin, we were left without someone to care for our dog while we went away for the weekend. After careful review of most of the boarding places in Austin, I was impressed by the ratings Happy Mailman received. When I checked out the facility, it was clean with plenty of room for the dogs to have a good time. The Staff was professional, friendly and hospitable. I will continue to use this business and would highly recommend this to anyone that finds themselves with the need to have someone truly CARE for their dog. Bravo Happy Mailman...Good Job.!
