Taurus Lamar

From the time we reach the light at Barton Springs and Lamar to the time we reach the Taurus parking lot, Baxter’s excitement escalates. Should he see one of his play buddies, he becomes even more excited. Baxter is clearly glad to be there, and it is comforting to me as I leave him to know he is in a place where he will be treated well.

Our Pack

  • Kassy finds every day at Taurus to be fun and challenging. She loves getting to know the dogs’ personalities and figuring out why dogs do the things they do. When not at Taurus, you might find Kassy with her dog Sadie Mae, walking the Town Lake trail or on the patio of a local Mexican restaurant, eating chips and queso and enjoying a margarita. Kassy loves indie rock and folk, so she is very happy to be in Austin!

  • Randi left the snow of Madison, WI for the sunshine of Austin! She and her rough collie, Ella, love to head to Zilker and run around. When she's not at Taurus, she also likes to hang out at home and try out a new recipe with the company her cat, Vondi. Randi loves the trust that Taurus builds with its clients and she enjoys learning about dog behavior.

    Trainer Consultant

  • Originally from Ohio, Rachael fell in love with Austin in 2006 while visiting with her husband and has called it home ever since.  Rachael is a lifelong animal lover and magnet for strays of all kinds.  As a result she shares her home with 4 dogs, 2 cats (one pure evil and one morally ambiguous), a turtle and several dozen composting worms.  When she isn't playing with dogs at Taurus and at home, Rachael enjoys reading, knitting, hiking, cooking, embroidery and embarking on (and sometimes completing) home renovation projects.  She is currently nearing the completion of her most ambitious creation to date, a baby girl.
