About Athena

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Thank you for considering me to love on your babies!

My name is Athena and my husband and I are HUGE dog lovers. We have a Vizsla named Nala and she is completely spoiled rotten... and thats how we like it! She is so sweet and has a very laid back and playful personality. She loves every dog she has ever met and is eager to meet new friends! She has her very own room that we painted pink and she has too many toys to count! We have 2 children ages 3 and 5 and they both love dogs also. Our children play with Nala every single day and give her lots of love and attention.

I am so blessed to be a stay at home mother. I will be at home with your babies all day and all night to give them the attention they deserve. We live in Burleson (Mansfield schools) and have a brand new planked wooden fence (6 foot tall) that encloses our 1 acre back yard. This is our dogs favorite thing about life! So much room to run and explore. We have also fostered dogs through a local dog rescue and we have enjoyed helping save these precious babies. We have boarded over a dozen strays and helped find them homes. My friends joke that we are "dog magnets" because stray dogs seem to find us everywhere. They joke that the dogs can sense our big hearts for animals and come find us for help!

We are comfortable with any dogs, big or small. I grew up with chihuahuas, a german shepard and a dalmatian. The first dog I owned as an adult was a 3 lb fully grown teacup yorkie and when I got married my husband brought a beautiful pitbull into my life. I have loved and spoiled each of these dogs and will do the same with yours.

If you want a meet and great please contact me. I have to admit that I still cry when I drop my dog off at boarding- I love her so much and it makes me sad to leave her. So if you want to come over and meet our family and see our house, we would be happy to have you.

We truly are dog lovers who enjoy the company of our furry friends. We look forward to spoiling and cuddling your babies!

*** Please note that we only accept potty trained and kennel trained dogs. ***

Athena and her family were AWESOME! We were so excited to have this opportunity for Sophie. She made time for us to do a meet and greet so that we were comfortable with leaving Sophie in her care, she was accommodating to our schedule for drop off and pick up, she sent us updates and a video of Sophie running around her yard and I feel confident that Sophie was well taken care of and loved in my absence. I have told EVERYONE about our experience and will DEFINITELY use Athena again.

Great hosts. Very obvious how much they love dogs. Athena was a gracious host and sent photos of Sonny having a great time with her. I highly recommend Athena!
