Taurus Lake Travis

My dog loves boarding at Taurus Lake Travis so much that we feel it is like giving him his very own vacation.

  • Loren graduated from TCU with a degree in Anthropology and enjoys learning about culture and behavior. She has always been a dog lover and is fascinated by the close bond that has developed between our two species. She lives with her fat cat, Napoleon, who rules the household with an iron fist, and has subjected both her and her dog China Doll to a lifetime of servitude under the mantle of “fanatical cat people.” Loren is a strong believer that any and all of the world’s problems can be solved with good Thai food, a bottle of wine, and a Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathon. Despite enjoying both volleyball and muay thai, her favorite thing is to curl up with her furry friends and crack open a good fantasy novel.

  • Ann grew up in El Paso, TX and moved to Austin to study at UT.  She graduated with a BA in Sociology and Government, so it was only natural that she ended up at Taurus.  That could be sarcastic, but it’s not.  She finds human behavior and interactions interesting, and for many of us, that includes how we behave with our dogs.  Ann has two dogs herself: a sassy Black Lab mix named Eve and a spunky Hound mix named Justice.  They love going hiking around town, canoeing on Lady Bird Lake, and camping across the nation.

Caitlin has also recently discovered her love of living a fit and healthy lifestyle and is currently training for her first 5K!

She and her pack of five dogs (Rue, Pistol, Magik, Kashel and Hiccup), plus her highschool sweetheart, Chad, love to curl up and watch TV or read the latest fantasy novel. Kelsi's commitment to the dog-human relationship carries over into her other favorite hobby, freestyle frisbee! She and her cattle dog love the sport and it will always be a part of her life.
