I worked with Carlton at Austin Pets Alive! for years, and have always admired his kind and caring attitude. Carlton has a very diverse skill set and has worked with many of our dogs for several years. He is great with dogs, cats, and horses alike! - Clark I.

Carlton was my neighbor and one of the most genuinely caring and nice young men I have met! He is very hardworking and smart, and has helped me with my shnoodle “Cookie” and my chocolate lab “Rufus”. I am 71 years old with bad knees, and it is hard for me to get around. Carlton is always happy to take them on a run or watch them while I run errands.

When Carlton watches your pet

If your dog in proper health and weather permits, I would love to take your dog on a run or a walk. I also enjoy playing fetch and playing with toys to keep the dog active and in good health. If we have to stay inside, I will responsibly play with toys at the owner and space permits or pet them if allowed. I am willing to do most anything the owner wishes as long as it’s within a reasonable distance and has open and active dialogue about activities.
