Ollie was happy and worn out when I picked him up. Lenell was friendly and accommodating. Ollie loved playing with Pupshaw, which I'm really happy about since he doesn't get to play with many dogs.

Lenell is communicative, flexible, reliable, and loves my dog. I intend to keep using her services for as long as she is willing to care for our dog ;-)

Wow! It is hard to describe how happy I am with her services. I won't ever use anyone else. She is an incredible person and definitely an animal lover and very comfortable with new dogs. She is also a very kind and smart person. Before our trip we had a flood in our house and I didn't have to make Bella's food so she offered to make it for me. She even went to the ...

Special Attention while you're away

Does your pup whimper or piddle wile you're away?
Are you worried about your cat's medication times?
Are you worried about your furniture?
I have calm cuddles for senior pets and am happy to attend their special needs too.

I will happily make house calls to pets that prefer their own space or don't play well with others.

In a rush or don't have a car?
I will pick up and/or deliver your pet ...

What Lenell would like to know about your dog

What is your dog's schedule?
Does your pup have free access to the outside/food/water?
Does your dog know any commands (sit, stay, heel, etc.)?
Is your dog kennel trained?
Are there any special needs to be met (medications, favorite blanket, keep away from a certain room or furnishing)?
Does your dog have a special diet?
Are there food treats and favorite toys for your pup?
Does your pup do well on a leash?
Where does your dog enjoy walking?
Does your dog get mopey when you're away? If so, we can arrange Skype calls to perk up the pup!

Here's where we'll take our walks
I'm just a few blocks away from Longview Park/Stephenson Preserve. Dogs love it!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
If your dog is kennel trained, we will use your kennel provided.
I have one very large kennel and two medium (adjusts to small) kennels available as well.
..but I am more than happy to have dog bed pallets on the living room floor and couches for cat-friendly pups. There's a separate guest room available for cats.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Your pet being boarded in my home will have my attention most of the day/night. I am never gone for more than a few hours. I love pet sitting and understand that I am providing a distraction for your pet so they won't get sad while you're away.
Playing in the large living room, watching National Geographic, or just being petted; your pet will be attended to. Feel free to check out my client's reviews of the service provided.

Time I'll spend with your dog
My pet sitting services include providing fresh food and water, the pup's preferred interactions (play with a favorite toy, belly rubs, things that you know your dog enjoy), doing my best to make sure your dog isn't feeling sad or missing you too much, and tidying up any messes that the dog may have made.
The fee includes up to three home visits per calendar date. Ideally the visits happen according to a schedule you provide to keep with her regular routine. Rarely, Austin traffic delays a timely visit, but not by much.

Please note: Aside from having my own pet companions, I also board some pets in my home. Instead of an overnight stay in your home, I make several visits throughout the day according to your pet's schedule.

Extra house-sitting services
I am happy to water any plants and bring in mail. I can also shift blinds, adjust lighting and the like to give your house the appearance of not being empty, though I always recommend having some lighting on a timer for security and for your pup. I can also bring your trash and recycling out/in if you'll be gone during your scheduled day.
