Let’s Play!

We can’t wait to welcome you and your pets to our family.

Black Bayou Boarding’s unique style offers a fun social atmosphere for your furry family members whether they’re here for daycare or boarding. Our guest and their owners can relax knowing the facility is by RESERVATION ONLY and that all dogs here have passed a behavior assessment.

Our fenced play area is quite large consisting of 7,000 square feet, so there is plenty of room for running, rolling, playing, and sunbathing outside with friends even for our XL guests! Pups can even enjoy a stock tank pool and baby pools during those hot days! We also have a smalls play area dedicated to our 20lb and under club that includes a baby pool. When not monitored such as naptime, bedtime, or meal time; guest relax in their own assigned kennel that is air conditioned and heated. Your furry loved ones receive 24/7 care everyday of the week in our own backyard.

Hello! I’m Taylor

Owner of Black Bayou Boarding

My team and I are dedicated to providing the highest quality, healthiest and most fun-loving care for pets and the parents who love them. We also offer comfort and relief to you by posting pics and videos of your fur baby on our snapchat throughout their whole stay! (Search for bbboarding in snapchat)

I personally know the feeling of being away from my paw-children and love when I receive check-in pics of them enjoying themselves. I am happy to answer any questions you may have, just give me a call or text for the quickest response!

We are locally owned and operated along with being insured since May 2017.


Please understand, we do not accept new boarders without time to complete a trial daycare day to assess temperament and behavior. We do not accept out of town guests which also decreases contagious pathogens entering our facility. Daycare is Monday-Friday only.

Our guest and their owners can relax knowing the facility is by RESERVATION ONLY and that all dogs here have passed a behavior assessment. Severe separation anxiety, escape artists, or any aggressive behavior is not accepted. We limit the amount of disturbances and distractions that can take away from the serenity found here on Black Bayou. Checkout our Facebook page and go to the videos tab to see videos of our play area and kennel area! Search bbboarding on snapchat and friend request us to see playtime!

"Fantastic facility that actually cares about your pets. They are treated well, spoiled actually, and are given every opportunity to safely play with other dogs, toys, and even some water activities. They make sure my car sick puppy gets her meds before I pick her up and really do everything they can to make sure she is happy and healthy! 10/10 will be returning for play dates and boarding needs."

"I love this place and so does SoCo!! I left her for a week while I traveled for work. This was the first time she’s ever been boarded and it was so wonderful. I never worried about her for a minute! Taylor and Kaelyn are so sweet to our baby girl. I know she is always in good hands. Thank you for making this such a great experience! "

"Black Bayou was a wonderful experience for our 2 pups. They worked hard to get them acclimated to the resort & the other dogs & in no time they were running and playing with them. The FB posts and Snapchats are an added bonus when traveling & missing your pups. We will definitely be back and highly recommend them for doggy daycare and/or boarding."

Kendra Cutrer-Dietrich

"We have been going to Black Bayou for a little under a year, and it is our dogs’ favorite place to go! They get excited when they know we are taking them for day care or boarding. My husband and I feel so much better traveling when our boys are so happy and in such good hands!"
