About Dakota

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dog owners of Austin!

I am a recent Texas State Wildlife Biology graduate, an ABC Certified Dog Trainer, and seasoned pet caretaker new to the Austin area. I have moved into a beautiful new home and love sharing it with the awesome dogs of this awesome city.

I have a large backyard (filled with toys) and a second living room (also filled with toys) specifically for dogs and training. If there are multiple boarders at one time, your dog(s) may enjoy socializing in the backyard; otherwise, I attempt to adequately exercise and spoil each dog with walks and personal playtime! I will also travel to your home for overnight or daytime care if your animal is more of a home-body.

Please allow me to put my love for dogs and spacious home to use caring for your animal(s)!

**While I am sometimes able to take same-day bookings, I can guarantee space if contacted early**

**Dogs must be cat friendly to stay in my home!**

Dakota was awesome with Zelda. She sent frequent updates, was very responsive to emails and texts and was very flexible in the pick up and drop off process. I would absolutely use her again and recommend her to my friends.
Can't say enough how great Dakota was, from beginning to end. She took our reservation with two day's notice and for three weeks. During this extended time away from our boy she was consistently in communication, giving us updates and lots of extended time away from our boy she was consistently in communication, giving us updates and lots of pictures. Finally when we picked our boy up, she even had some helpful observations and recommendations for what might help him with his confidence issues. This was particularly nice as newer dog owners.

She is clearly a "dog person" and we are so happy that, while we had to be away from our pup, he got to spend his time with other dogs and under the care of someone who was so invested in his well being.

Dakota was AWESOME! She was very professional, kind, and attentive to the needs of our pup. She sent updates every day with videos and pictures of Apollo making new friends and running around. I definitely felt better leaving him in a home than a Apollo making new friends and running around. I definitely felt better leaving him in a home than a kennel. She even brought one of his toys to our home when we forgot to grab it at pick up! A+ and we'll definitely be rebooking.
