Located One Mile South of NRG Stadium
Rover Oaks Houston, the original facility, is located on a beautiful lakeside campus only a few blocks from NRG Stadium. Rover Oaks was launched on October 15, 2001, after founder Steve Smith and his business partner spent nearly two years researching the pet care industry, surveying local pet owners’ needs, and planning the state-of-the-art resort. Their goal was to create a fun and safe environment where pets would love to come and play, and pet owners would feel 100% confident in the superior care that their dogs and cats were enjoying. Within a few months of opening, Rover Oaks Pet Resort became known as the premier destination in the entire Houston metropolitan area for lodging, doggie daycare, pet grooming & styling, and professional training. Since that time, Rover Oaks' reputation as one of the most trusted pet resorts in this area has continued to grow.
Located One-Mile Southwest of Katy Mills Mall
Rover Oaks Pet Resort was serving over 4,000 area pet owners by April 2004, so the management team conducted a major customer survey to see how well the business was meeting the needs of its customers and their pets. Not only did the customers give Rover Oaks exceptionally high ratings for boarding, training, daycare, grooming, and customer service…. but a large number of clients encouraged the team to develop a second pet resort on the west side of town. Armed with this information, Steve partnered with pet lover/businesswoman Joy Lee to develop and launch a second Rover Oaks location. On September 11, 2006, Rover Oaks Katy opened for business.
