About Annie

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
An Active Host Since 2011. Minutes from the Airport and Downtown! As always a Bubble Bath included with every Vacay! Note: *Please check with me personally on availability as I am officially booked more times than not but have been doing what I love to do and managing a pack most life and will accommodate if at all possible!* Also note: *smoking permitted outside my home, 'though this does not indicate the quality of care provided.*
Hi, I'm Annie! I have been involved continuously in animal rescue/fostering/giving forever homes for, well gosh, most my life, not for pay, I am a seasonal Tax Examiner with the Internal Revenue Service but this is my passion and I love doing what I'm doing so much, that I might not go back! :) 24/7 supervision and love! A puppy? A high energy pup? A special needs pup? No problem! If your pup is game, walks daily to Mueller, Lady Bird Lake or Barton Springs and if your pup is really adventurous, my favorite watering hole is Pale Face, along with other puppy playmates to explore, on-leash of course..:) If you prefer a more laid-back Vacay, a huge back yard perfect for off-leash exploration fun in the sun, kiddie pool provided of course..:) and relaxation in the shade in a privacy fenced, safe and secure environment. Perhaps they prefer the company of humans and lots of snuggle time, I can certainly accommodate..:) and yes, they usually do end up in bed with us..;) matter of fact, it usually ends up a big ol' slumber party! :) Never kennel myself but if you prefer or if you feel is needed as security blanket for your pup, please feel free to bring along but have never found necessary..:)

Kind of an old hippy and tree hugger I suppose, lots of peace, love and understanding here..:) I do enjoy spending time with the pups outdoors, weather and your pup's preferences permitting, BBQ often and a fire pit out back, which we have the tendency to curl up around..:) and do on occasion burn incense or have a cigarette on my patio after a fun filled day so if sensitive to smoke, please make me aware and can certainly refrain from and accommodate and your pup will certainly come home freshly bathed after all the puppy play! :) Oh, and yes indeed, I do have Pitties but no bullies here! :) Please be current on preventative to ensure a wonderful Vacay for all and I can certainly assist here as well..:)
Outstanding references from South Congress Veterinary Clinic, Emancipet, and Animal Trustees of Austin.

Now offering a free trial night with an extended stay!
Discounted rates for extended stays, multi-pet families and repeat guests of course! The longer your stay, the bigger your savings! VERY flexible drop off and pick up times at no additional charge!

Can't wait until the Vacay! See ya soon! Woof! :)-annie

Note: *I love cats as well, thus have been also referred to as, annie's cathouse..;) and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting 'though I realize might not be a good fit for all, would love to visit your kitty while you're away, and can certainly check mail, the security of your home, water plants etc. and is a service I provide for my own friends.*

Perfect place for the friendly dog that needs lots of exercise and entertainment!
Annie was very informative and easy to communicate with. She really cared about my dogs and it showed through the pictures she sent me while I was on my trip and the way my dogs behaved around her when I went to pick them up. I've been with my dogs for over 10 years so I can read their body language, and I could tell they were very happy around Annie and had a fun time. She gave them both a wonderful smelling bath just before I picked them up. I will definitely use her again in the future!
Annie was so sweet with our dog, Neilah. Our usually anxious girl was happy to leave us, and came home exhausted from all the play, stimulation and attention.

Annie sent great updates, photos and videos and was very attentive. We are looking forward to booking with her again.
