About Us


Southpaws at Home is owned by Sonya Wilson and Tim Smith, owners of the well-regarded local canine daycare, Southpaws Playschool. Southpaws Playschool was the first cage free dog daycare in Austin, and after fourteen years (all in the 78704 zip), is still considered one of the best places in Austin to bring your dog for play time and socialization.
