Doobie Dogs Pet Taxi Houston
Does Stella need to get to doggie day care but you have an important Zoom meeting? Or maybe Baxter needs to get a pawdicure but you have to be across town?
With Doobie Dogs, a Houston pet taxi service, you don’t have to worry about it. Formerly called Duber Dogs (think Uber for dogs), Doobie Dogs will pick up and deliver your dog where it needs to go.
Unlike Uber Pet, you don’t have to ride along with your furry friend. Doobie Dogs Houston Pet Taxi will take care of everything for you. (Don’t worry, the driver isn’t smoking anything… he just had to change the name from Duber Dogs to Doobie Dogs Houston Pet Taxi because of a certain uber big transportation service.)
About Doobie Dogs Pet Taxi
Entrepreneur Ron Velez got the idea for Doobie Dogs while managing projects for his cleaning and remodeling business. He would drive by a doggie daycare in the Heights each day. He thought that a pet taxi service would be useful for busy families that needed some help managing their doggie duties.
Ron worked with a bus broker (yes, that’s a thing) and located just what he wanted — in Portland Oregon. But it was a perfect, air-conditioned mini-bus that could stand the wear and tear of Houston traffic. A cheap SWA flight later, and Ron and two friends were driving the bus 2,300 miles back to Houston.
The bus is now retrofitted for dogs, including sturdy Ruff Land Performance Kennels attached to the floor of the vehicle. These crush-proof kennels help ensure your dog’s safety while traveling. (Doobie Dogs is also a local Houston dealer of Ruff Land Kennels.)
This is a much needed service for Houston pet owners. As Ron says, “Your daily schedules are hectic. Let us help out with the pets. We can deliver them to your doggie daycare, veterinarian, boarding, spa or groomer, and return them safely home.”
Ron is also focused on giving back to the Houston dog owner community as well. The bus came with signage on one side, from its previous life as a municipal bus. Ron is filling that space with “lost dog” signs from the area. Dog owners looking for a lost pet can send a flyer to Ron via DuberDogs Facebook Messenger.

I’m 71 and may need assistance if my 70 # Labrador needs to get to the emergency animal hospital . She’s 12 and acting very largetic today and I’m worried about her.
Yesterday we spent an entire hour watching with her chasing squirrels! She’s may have overextended herself. She’s eating a little this afternoon.
I’m just trying to prepare if I need to get her care quickly.
I’m going to call Uber Pet and Doggie Transportation to see if the driver can assist with lifting.
Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated.

Hi Denise! I hope you were able to get her to the vet today and that Uber Pet Doggie Transport was able to help you!
