My little Shorkie loves to visit Martha! Her home is lovely and equipped to provide safety, security, and love to her visitors. We are new to Texas and our little one isn't so great with other dogs; as such, we were nervous about finding a new sitter. Martha is perfect - she provides our little one with extra attention and love. We are very happy to have found Martha!!!

Martha was awesome. She is so sweet and her home was definitely set up for dogs. Riley seemed very happy when we picked her up. We recently moved to Austin and it was a short notice arrangement but it worked out very well. We will definitely use her again.

The first time I met Martha, I immediately knew my dog would be well cared for and have a good time. She has had years of experience with dogs. Her home is immaculate and the yard and pool are perfect for my lab. I have finally found my perfect dog staycation home!!!!

Accepting Pets -Westlake/Tarrytown

I have been a full-time pet sitter for the past 16 years. For 5 years, I managed a large boarding facility, in Austin, TX. I work with a mobile veterinarian and have experience in administering all types of medications. I work with all types of dogs - puppies, geriatric, special needs, those needing medication...I do it all.

This is by no means your typical boarding facility. We have a spacious lot (3 acres) and the ...

What Martha would like to know about your dog

No particular breed preferences. I always like to do a meet-and-greet session with the owner and the pets that I will be taking care of before actually providing my services. I do this at no expense to the pet owner. During this time, I fill out a detailed form so I will be familiar with feeding times, medications if any, specifically what each pet likes and dislikes. Walking/exercise schedule, emergency contacts, vet's name -address and phone number, etc. By doing so, I am fully ready to provide exceptional care of the animals on the day of scheduled services. I highly recommend, for all new clients, a meet and greet and booking your reservation at least 48 hours in advance of confirming your stay. I look forward to meeting your fur children.

When Martha watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We have various options for dog walks. More than most situations. We have open pasture, we have trails through the trees, we have low traffic roads we can walk. Your pets will get plenty of exercise with us.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
We section off the house into various rooms. Each pet has its own living quarters during the stay. Totally private. We encourage each guest to bring their pets own bedding from home, so they will be most comfortable, because it is their bedding.

Time I'll spend with your dog
At a minimum, I will spend 25-30 minutes per visit. Usually it is a 30-45 minute period of time. I never rush...what ever needs to get done, I complete it and then move on.

Time I'll spend with your dog
This is my full time vocation. I am fully dedicated to the proper care and attention for your pets. I follow the routine of each of my clients.

Extra house-sitting services
I will assist with bringing in mail, watering plants, parameter check of the property and help with taking trash out for pick up.
