Dogtopia, at 6434 FM 1463, offers contact-free, curbside drop-off and pick-up services. In celebration of the opening, Dogtopia of Fulshear will offer an exclusive promotion for the first 100 dogs to sign up for their special founders offer.

The new location is owned and operated by entrepreneur and businessman Justin Burnett, who pivoted from an extensive career in the oil industry to business ownership, and is looking forward to bring Dogtopia to the Fulshear and Katy communities.

“I am excited to share Dogtopia with this great community, and we can’t wait to start making a difference in the lives of pet parents and their pups,” Justin Burnett said.

Providing personalized care for pups in a fun, safe and comfortable environment, Dogtopia sets the industry standard among dog daycares with its three key benefits: education, exercise and socialization. Dogtopia is the perfect place for pups to gain those important social skills and play with new furry friends.

Dogtopia’s environment allows dogs to feel comfortable, enjoy plenty of playtime and exercise, and the various playrooms offer fun for dogs of similar size and temperament. Each playroom has compressed rubber flooring to ease joints, prevent slipping and promote safer play. Dogtopia gives each dog an opportunity to stay active throughout the day in an environment that is safe and clean, which can give local families a peace of mind.

To ensure the safety of all pups, pet parents and employees, Dogtopia is taking extra safety precautions alongside their rigorous cleaning protocol. In addition to their curbside drop-off and pick-up services, Dogtopia maintains a custom cleaning program that utilizes pet-safe products that clean, disinfect and offer the highest level of safety available. The playrooms are sanitized twice daily when the pups are resting, and routine detail cleaning is performed throughout the day. Each playroom has a powerful HVAC system, with in-duct UV lighting that funnels air out of the building to ensure clean, fresh air, and eliminates bad bacteria.

Alongside providing quality care in a healthy, safe and fun daycare center for local pups, Dogtopia is bringing between 20-40 job opportunities to the community. Dogtopia also launched the Dogtopia Foundation with the noble cause to enable dogs to positively change our world. The Foundation funds programs focused around three worthy causes: Services Dogs for Veterans, Youth Literacy Programs and Employment Initiatives for Adults with Autism. All funds raised are donated directly to supported organizations. To learn more, visit the website dogtopiafoundation.org.
