Rocko's Retreat & Doggy Daycare

Rocko's Retreat & Doggy Daycare Overnight Dog Boarding Call ahead for your dogs next stay. Pickup and Drop off hours Mon-Fri morning/afternoon/early evening. Please call to arrange Sat and Sun hours with appointments


What a beautiful day it was. We had a ton of outside play time, hopefully tomorrow we remember to take some pictures. We still have room for tomorrow if your looking for somewhere to have your pup play! Our number is (507) 440-6054 call or text us!


We have had several messages inquiring if we will remain open during the current crisis. The answer is a resounding YES! Legal concerns after the Governors most recent address caused question so we reached out to the City of Austin. They showed us the statue and verified that we indeed may stay open as we provide a service to essential employees of Austin and surrounding communities. This information has also been supported by several friends who also own kennels in Minnesota. Dogs are family and they need a safe place to go as their humans are required to work.

Our facility is family operated and we have created a new policy that includes “only one person/pet in the office during drop off and pick up”… with this addition we will remain vigilant in maintaining “Social distancing”.

As Rockos Retreat provides essential services for our community we are extending a $2 off for playcare for any essential employees first time here! (Just mention this post)

As both Troy and I work at MCHS we are very aware of the current crisis. Taking care of your family pets and maintaining a clean facility are always on our minds.

Thank you for supporting our small business, Stay safe everyone!
