I am passionate about my dogs and will love your baby just as I do my own. I'm open to having your pet spend the night at my house, but am also available for play dates, walks, and visits to your home. My house is small, but I have a huge screened in back porch that is my boys' and their friends. I am honest and reliable, the assistant manager at Piranha Killer Sushi downtown. My world revolves around my boys, from how my house is set up to what I drive. They are friendly and accepting of guests in our house especially my eternal puppy Bronx. He loves to have a playmate and although he's a big guy he knows to be especially gentle with the little ones. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or to watch your loved one.
About this sitter:
Hi Guys! If you've come across me before, I took a break from dog sitting from July until November, I took a job as a restaurant manager and worked 60+ hours a week. I am just starting back this weekend, and am available full time due to a knee injury that won't let me stay on my feet 12 hours a day! I live in central Austin with a fenced in backyard. I try to take my boys to the park daily, and if they dont get to the park we have a secret neighborhood watering hole that is a great way for them to get some exercise. I have been a dog owner ever since I can remember, and i love dogs of all shapes and sizes. i have two dogs that my world revolves around, and my home is very pet friendly. Every dog that comes to stay with us has a great time! But i am also available to come walk your dog or even scoop them up and drive them to a nearby dog friendly park to socialize and play. I promise to make sure that they get at least an hour of exercise, while of course keeping a keen eye on them for safety's sake. My full attention is always directed towards them, my phone stays in my pocket for emergency purposes and maybe a pic or two of your loved one, but I pay full attention to your baby instead of paying attention to my phone. If they're not good off leash, I can take them on a brisk walk or run to save you time to spend with your family at home. I can guarantee that they will get plenty of exercise and socialization during your long work hours. Please feel free to give me a call or come visit so that your are comfortable leaving your baby in my care.
I am a known regular at Auditorium Shores, I have my two dogs who I take out as often as i can. I've owned a dog as far back as I can remember, and I have experience in just about every situation that a dog owner can be faced with. However, I am a pack leader with tons of love to offer! I've watched almost every episode of The Dog Whisperer and bring Cesar Milan's tried and true training to the animals I care for.
Why I love dog sitting
I have been a dog owner since I was a small child, and love my furry babies.
Meet my pets
My boys love company! It's a non- stop party around here. The ice breaker is usually the big basket of half chewed bones and toys. Once your pup finds the basket of toys they KNOW they're in the right place. My youngest Bronx gets depressed for a day after his buddies leave, so we really look forward to having dogs over. We have a large screened in back porch that the dogs have free reign over, and a fenced in backyard. The fence is not pretty, but it doesn't have any escape routes. Although we do have a yard we still make daily trips to the dog parks around town. I have an amazing secret dog park right in the middle of the Galindo neighborhood that the boys and company absolutely love! RIP Bruiser Hines I loved you sooo much.
About my yard
I have a fenced in backyard, as well as a large screened in back porch that is all doggie play space.
There are a few things I need to know about your pup.
1. Are they house trained?
2. Are they leash trained?
3. Are they socialized?
4. How is their recall when off leash?
5.Do they have any "special habits"? (i.e. escape artist maneuvers)
Being trained is DEFINITELY NOT a requirement, I just like to know a little bit about their behavior.
Here's where we'll take our walks
I live in south Austin, and have a great neighborhood for dog walking. I do like to take my boys to Auditorium shores to get some interaction with other dogs as well.
Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Wherever they would like. With me if they prefer. I do usually ask that you bring their bed so they have a little piece of home with them if they have one. If not it's completely fine, we have plenty of extras.
Time I'll spend with your dog
I am currently re-habilitating a knee injury, so I will be with them the entire time.
