The Mission of Texas Doghouse

is to provide dogs with a 

fun, safe, clean and caring place to stay and play in a family environment. 


We are committed to 

providing excellent service 

to our customers, 

both human and furry.

We understand that leaving your fur-baby with those that you do not know can be hard. At Texas Doghouse, we want all of our clients to know that we treat your dog as if they were our own. When we hire our staff, we have one extremely important rule, they must have a passion for taking care of animals and must love dogs. Proud to be family owned and operated since September of 2011.

David & Heather Murphy


Although they have always called Texas home, they traveled with David's job for 7 years prior to opening TDH and were able to visit many parts of the United States. That is how they were introduced to the Doggie Daycare way of boarding. While they were traveling, almost everywhere they went had doggie daycare, as opposed to a traditional kennel, but when they came home, they couldn't find one and had to drive to the other side of Houston to board their dogs. In 2009, they decided to follow their passion of bringing a nice, friendly, and clean doggie daycare and boarding facility to The Woodlands area...the kind of place they would choose for their own dogs. They spent 2 years researching the industry and in 2011 they were the first doggie daycare that doesn’t offer traditional boarding to open in The Woodlands area.


It is their goal to give each and every dog the individualized time and attention they deserve and it is essential to them to create a family environment among their staff, which they have been very successful at. Over the years many people have been unable to tell the difference between their family and their staff. They feel that this makes each dogs experience an even better one. Since the beginning of TDH, it has been of utmost importance to them that they not only offer exceptional service, but that they offer the highest quality service as well. That is why their staff ratios are higher, they use the highest quality/green cleaning products/shampoos and they don't charge for small things that other places nickel and dime their customers for, like giving supplements for upset tummies, adding supplements to food to get dogs to eat, giving added time and attention to dogs who may need it, etc. David and Heather are true dog lovers and are excited about the opportunity to offer your pup with a fun, clean, and safe home away from home!
