Very sweet family and dogs. Kept me updated and I was never concerned that my dog was not in good hands.

Ever since I met Genest over 5 years ago she's been enthusiastically dedicated to (read: obsessed with) her little furry family members, dog Cane and cat Sebastian, then later Lou dog. As if constantly walking, cuddling, and loving the three like humans wasn't enough, she's also been active with local pet rescue shelters, inviting dogs into her home until good families were found to adopt them long-term. I've lost count of how many animals Genest ...

Genest is exceptionally welcoming of all dogs, and people, too! Her dogs, Lou and Cane, are great dogs, and they are very easy going and socialize well!

Playmates and cuddles in Austin

I'm Genest, and I am an engineer by day and an adventurer by night/weekend. I like running, rock climbing, swimming and hiking on the greenbelt.

What Genest would like to know about your dog

When Genest watches your pet

We're an active family. Lou and I take daily long walks, and Cane joins in for a portion (he's getting old). We go out the the greenbelt on the weekends. If your dog is good on and off a leash, they would join us - but this would be discussed with the owner beforehand.
