Hi Guys,
My name is Louis, my 2 dogs & I live/own our home near Gonzales St. & East 7th St. I'm the 4th generation to live in the same house my grandfather built with his own hands. My home faces over 15 acres of Parque Zaragoza Neighborhood Park and I live 1 mile to downtown Austin. My backyard is east 7th st, 1 block to HEB and best of all, East 7th St. straight shot to Austin–Bergstrom International Airport. My home address is close to everything Austin!

Let me tell you about my 2 dogs- the oldest dog is a corgi named Tater Tot (red/white) the mother to Sparky (tri-mix). I've always loved dogs since I was a kid. Please take a moment and check out pictures of my kiddos.

I keep my place tidy & clean. I don't drink or smoke. I might charge a little bit more but your dogs are worth it. And my home is fully fenced and locked so they can run all day and play safe.

I am also able to provide transportation to a vet in case of a pup-emergency. I also offer Additional walks, care for elderly, disabled, medicated dogs. Inquire within about these additional services for a small extra fee.

Looking to board your dogs for the holidays, last minute plans or going out for the evening? I am available! I can't wait to meet you and your fur-doggies! OPEN 24/7 365. I will respond asap. If you have any question please feel free to ask.

Thank you for your considerations.
Louis

Louis was great! He took lots of pictures and I definitely came back to a very happy pup.
Louis is wonderful! I used Louis over the long Thanksgiving weekend to watch my dog Lily. I felt very comfortable leaving her with him. He has a lot of knowledge of all different dog breeds and provided lots of pictures every day, which was so reassuring to know she was having a great time and feeling right at home. She was even sent home with extra treats and a pretty pink bandana. I would definitely use Louis again and highly recommend him!

Louis was an absolutely wonderful caretaker of my Weimaraner, Mister Big! My dog does not like to be away from me and Louis did everything he could to comfort and entertain him while I had to be away for my son's wedding. Mister Big was happy to return to Louis' home on the second day and he seemed to enjoy the company of the other visiting dogs. The pictures he sent to me were fun and reassuring. I will definitely call on Louis again upon my return to the Austin area. A great big thanks to you, Louis!

Louis was great! He was friendly and Domino liked him immediately. He introduced Domino one at a time to the other two dogs he had staying so she would not be afraid. He sent us pictures, and responded promptly to texts. We really felt comfortable with him and will definitely have Domino stay with him when we are in Austin.

Louis and his corgis are amazing. Joaquin has stayed with them several times now and they are our go-to when we need a sitter. Louis always sends lots of pictures and he is wonderfully flexible with pick up and drop off times. Joaquin is excited as soon as we turn onto Louis' street and he comes home happy and relaxed. Thanks, Louis.

Louis is great! Super convenient location to the airport and he is extremely easy to work with and accommodating. I will use him again.
Louis and his two dogs were fantastic hosts for my pup! I contacted him after other arrangements fell through on the night before I had to leave town for business. He was quick to respond to my inquiry and was very accommodating with the drop off given the circumstances. The daily photos made me feel very comfortable that my dog was in good hands. I would certainly recommend Louis to others.

Love Louis.
Louis is the greatest!
As usual, Louis took excellent care of Tiny Joaquin, and I don't have to worry about a thing. He is really good with sending pictures and stories every day, and Tiny J loves the corgis!
Louis did a wonderful job taking care of Buckley! He was very accommodating for pickup/dropoff and sent us plenty of pictures over the weekend. Buckley came back well rested and well fed. I would definitely use Louis again for our next vacation. 5 Stars!!!

Thank you so much Louis! I didn't worry one single bit. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of my baby boy. And thanks for the treats! We just unpacked the crate and found them. What a terrific 1st Dog Vacay experience!
Louis was terrific. He is kind and loving toward our dogs. He sent us pictures. I am thankful we were able to book him our short notice. (our bad planning). His yard is fenced all the way around. He is easy to find and has his own corgi that liked our dog.

Louis is awesome! We have left our dog with him several times and will continue to do so!
Louis was a fantastic host and our two dogs loved staying with him and his 2 cute dogs, Tater Tot and Sparky. Louis took them to the park across the street, took them on walks and gave them lots of attention. He posted pics nightly so we can see that our boys were having a great time and were well taken care of. He was extremely quick with a response if we messaged him and highly recommend Louis (and Tater Tot and Sparky) to anyone looking for a fantastic host for your babies!

This was the first time I took advantage of the DogVacay service. I stayed at a dog friendly hotel while attending a weekend medical meeting and needed daycare for my cockapoo traveling companion. It was my good fortune to book with Louis C. He is a bright man with a big smile and clearly a very big heart. He took great care of "Annie" (the cockapoo) and reassured me (her food guy). I strongly recommend his services to anyone needing dog care. Should I be back in Austin I will book early with him. Martin G

Louis was super fast and responsive to meet with me when a previously confirmed sitter fell through at the very last minute before I was going out of town for my Great Pyr/Lab mix. He takes only one dog at a time to ensure that he can provide focused attention with his clientele, which made the last-minute meet-and-greet a low stress and smooth encounter for my pup to meet his two dogs, acclimate slowly, and settle in for his stay. Louis kept me up on the visit with pictures and feedback which made me so very happy, knowing that all was well and Kenobi was comfortable throughout his first weekend trip. Louis treated Kenobi like one of his own family, spoiling him with lots of love and company; this puppy is a shadow who wants to be with people always. Louis let him happily follow him around and hang out throughout chores and chill time-- he even sent the boy home with a new toy and a new light for his collar for good night potty visibility. Definitely recommend Louis for anyone with a people-centric pooch who hope to find someone who will make their pup feel right at home...even with minimal notice.

Louis was fantastic! He made me feel at ease and was very good with Tyson. He sent me pictures and kept me updated on how Tyson was doing and if he was eating too. Tyson was incredibly happy and looks like he passed out from being tired there, which is a good thing. Thank you for taking such good care of Tyson, Louis!! I would definitely use him again

Louis was terrific with our girl - she kept dragging us back to his place on walks because she loved the experience so much... ;-)
Louis was very accommodating when taking care of my one year old Catahoula Leopard Dog - I picked him up late and booked pretty close to his vacation date.

He also updated me with regular pictures, which really makes a difference when you don't get to see your pup for a week or so.

He had a good yard for a dog and a couple of other dogs who played with mine. Overall, it seemed like a good vacation and would definitely recommend Louis!

Louis was very well-organized and prepared and took good care of Samantha. He sent me pictures each of the 5 nights she was there and reported briefly on how she was doing.
Louis and his two awesome corgis provided a warm and caring home for our dog over Christmas. He was even kind and understanding when our return flight was delayed three times. When we finally picked up our girl, she was calm and content and she even seemed attached to Louis--a privilege she does not grant many people. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Louis as a sitter.

Louis took perfect care of our little pooch. He sent constant updates, and made sure she got constant exercise and plenty of outside time. We will definitely be back!
Louis was so nice and Tootsie seemed to get along just fine with him! He also sent me some pictures which I really appreciated
