About Chris

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Small breed and puppy friendly (any dog up to 25 pounds) smoke free home with large super secure fenced yard in Central Austin. I am the best and the most experienced boarder with Chihuahua's, Small Breeds, and puppies.

I specialize and care for lots of puppies and elder dogs that need extra care. Also dogs that are extremely shy and not usually good with other dogs. I have worked with a lot of foster dogs who were abused and need extra attention. They will feel safe and get some social therapy along the way. Dogs get walked 1-2 times a day if you wish and get lots of outdoor supervised playtime. Please bring a harness and your dogs food. All dogs are separated at feeding times of 8 am and 4 pm. I am used to serving regular, raw foods, and administering medications including injectables.

I work from home so your pet will have 24/7 supervision and attention. I have been hosting the 1100+ member Austin Chihuahua community for over 13 years. I have 2 Chihuahua's and a Maltipoo. Your dogs will be drowned in love and affection. Hundreds of referrals available.

Chris was great! He knew I was nervous about leaving my adopted dog for the first time since getting him from the animal shelter. He's got very high separation anxiety and it seems like Chris was very patient with him. He kept my dog, Captain, with his other chihuahua's which I think really helped. So between Chris and the other pups, he was never alone. I absolutely recommend Chris for your small dogs!

Chris was great. Very accommodating with drop off and pick up hours and also booked two days before. The only issue was that Bulleit got into some cat food but mistakes happen. Chris was also very up front about it and I wouldn't have known if he didn't say anything. Very honest which is greatly appreciated.

Benji loved staying with Chris, he had so much fun he didn't want to leave. Took my dog on about 8 hours notice and did an amazing job. Highly recommend
