Good Dog, a new 1,850-square-foot dog walking, boarding and day care facility in the Pearl neighborhood, will open Dec. 8 at 132 W. Grayson St., Ste. 150.

According to a news release, Good Dog is owned and operated by Steven and Kaylee Bell, who returned to South Texas after running a dog day care in Dallas.

Good Dog is designed to be a safe, fun environment for smaller dogs weighing 35 pounds or less or measuring under 15 inches in height at the shoulder, the release stated. However, Good Dog will provide walks for dogs of all sizes.

“We’re really looking forward to being a part of the Pearl neighborhood and being able to serve the dogs and dog owners here,” Steven Bell said in the release. “We have a wonderful space where every decision was made to create a great experience for smaller dogs—we hope the community loves it.”

The facility includes two indoor play spaces and two outdoor play spaces in addition to individual indoor kennels.



Good Dog’s day care and walk services are based on a monthly membership, while boarding services are offered to guests at a nightly rate.

Additional enrichment play and one-on-one time with dogs are available as an add-on. Though the boarding and day care services apply to smaller dogs due to space limitations, 30-minute and one-hour walks are available for dogs of all sizes and take place throughout the Pearl neighborhood and the San Antonio River Walk Museum Reach. Visit www.gooddogatpearl.com/services to see a full list of services and membership options.

Pearl Chief Operating Officer Mesha Millsap said in the release that Good Dog will complement Hotel Emma and the mix of dining and shopping options at Pearl, the mixed-use development.

“Good Dog is an excellent addition to Pearl’s neighborhood,” Millsap said in the release. “Pearl has always been dog-friendly, and we are excited to welcome a great team of professionals to better meet the needs of our community and their dogs.”

Good Dog will be open to guests 7:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
