Our Pack

We are thrilled to join the Allandale neighborhood! Our Burnet Road location will be staffed by Pack Members from our other Austin-area locations as well as some fresh, new faces. We can't wait for you to meet the Pack!

  • Chelsea is an adventurer at heart. Though she grew up in Michigan, she has been a world traveler and loves seeing new places. Chelsea loves going to work every day knowing that she is devoting her time and effort into improving dogs’ lives. She has two dogs (Sharkey and Fraggle) but is also always fostering!

    Pack Leader

  • Andrew finds himself back home in Austin after being away for 8 years. Andrew studied Exercise physiology at Baylor University and Music at Dallas Baptist University. His love for man's-best-friend led him to Taurus from the fitness industry. When not at Taurus, Andrew can be found playing blues guitar, cycling around town, reading a good book or in the company of his best bud Bear, a Black Lab mix, and Layla, a spirited and rambunctious Miniature Pinscher.

  • Vikki has a lot of experience working with animals, and she’s passionate about learning how to train dogs. She loves to learn new things and is a dedicated & hardworking student. When she’s not gabbing about animal behavior, Vikki loves to ride her bike to a green space or river and read or swim.

  • Anna may not have been born in Austin, but her tastes are pitch perfect for this town: checking out live music, hiking, swimming, and watching movies at the Alamo Drafthouse are just a few of her main interests! She loves music, so make sure to strike up a conversation about your favorite band sometime!

  • Wes has been in the dog care industry for four years, and has loved every minute. He enjoys not only learning what he can teach the dogs, but what they can teach him. When he's not at Taurus, Wes enjoys the Austin weather and the vast outdoor activities - from rock climbing to hiking the greenbelt; anywhere there is someplace to be outside and with his scruffy, fun-loving dog, Oliver.

  • Whether we're talking dogs or horses, Ariel is passionate about animal behavior as well as helping owners. She loves learning about the psychology of how we interact with dogs, and we can't wait to see where that passion takes her. Since she moved here from New Braunfels for a change of scenery, she's loved all of the outdoor activities Austin has to offer!

  • Cory loves the outdoors so much, it's no wonder he likes to hang out in the yard with dogs! Whether he's hiking or taking a brewery tour, Cory's often on the move. His energy is infectious and he loves learning about how dogs' minds work. Though he doesn't have a dog of his own right now, he has a lot of love to give to every Taurus pup!
