About Evan

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, Everyone. I'm Evan and thank you for stopping by.

Just a little bit about me: I moved to Austin about seven years ago now and own a Pet Waste Removal Service called "Dog Gone Poop ATX". I used to care for over 28 horses on a ranch in south Austin. I have volunteered at animal shelters for years and have been around dogs of all ages and sizes all my life. I have a passion for all animals and you can rest assured that your pup will be fine with me. I treat them as my own when they stay with me. We have a great time every day going on walks around the quiet complex, playing in the large secure play area on site, watching TV, lounging around, playing and playing some more. Don't worry I will send you an overload of pictures and videos so you can see what we are up to throughout the day.

Obviously every situation is unique and different so message me if you have a special case and I'm happy to see if I can help out.

I DO NOT Accept Aggressive Dogs. It becomes not only a liability for me, but I have a responsibility to take care of each individual dog I watch. Their SAFETY is my #1 priority.

I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you and your baby. Give me a try - I promise you will not regret it!!

Thank you,
- Evan

Evan was great with my 13 year old dachshund as well as my 4 month old labradoodle. He was great w/ communication, was very caring, and assertive. Very grateful he was willing to accommodate us so last minute. My dogs moped around for the rest of the evening after I picked them up bc they missed Evan and his pup, Cali. Evan is great!!

Evan is amazing. Hands down amazing. We will stay with him again. Repeat customer! :)
Evan did a great job with our 2 senior dogs! One of our dogs is a little "cranky" and can be difficult to deal with, but Evan knew how to handle him and made it a great stay for both of them! He keeps you updated with texts and pictures which was a nice perk!

Evan was wonderful!! Even our skittish fur-baby loved him right away. Both our babies had a great time and it was wonderful to not have to worry at all. We will definitely be return customers.
Our Boxer, Jack, had a blast at Evan's place. We were met at the door upon arrival and Jack instantly felt at home and I had a peace of mind knowing Jack would be well taken care of. Evan is a great guy and obviously loves dogs as much as they love him.

I am new to the DogVacay community and this was absolutely amazing. Evan was super kind and accommodating and I felt like I was leaving Finnick with a friend. He sends updates at least once a day, it really helped me feel better about leaving my pup behind. Would highly recommend leaving your dog with Evan and will definitely book with him again

It was another happy boarding for my corgi, Scout. Evan is amazing again. Thanks and looking forward to the next boarding!
SNOWBEE had a great week with Evan! I was apprehensive leaving her for a whole week but Evan was wonderful with her. Her favorite thing to do is run & I received a couple of pix/video of her running free in a big field, she was lovin' it. She slept in her bed but in Evan's room so I'm sure she was comfortable at night. Evan was great about sending a text update each day & quick to respond if I texted him any questions. He has a great house & yard for the pets & he's very comfortable & easygoing with them. We'll definitely use Evan to care for our crazy girl again, with no apprehension the next time!

This was the first time that I had to leave the puppies with someone and Evan proved to be an incredible host. He communicates great, sent pictures and was very responsive. There's not one thing that I would have changed. I would absolutely use his services again and recommend him to anyone looking for a dog sitter.

We left Daisy with Evan for 5 days based on the many positive reviews and repeat customers he had on the site. Our experience was 5-stars as well! He allowed us to come over for a meet and greet prior to our trip, even though he had family staying with him that day. Afterward, we felt totally comfortable leaving Daisy. We knew she would be well taken care of and would receive plenty of attention. We received photo updates throughout our trip and texts about how she was doing. We really appreciate that Evan is able to do this full time and therefore be with dogs throughout the day/night. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fantastic dog sitter, and we will definitely be using him again in the future!!

Evan is great and loving with my dog. She loves going to stay with him.
Evan is great! I was so worried about my unpredictable pick up time, but he is just so flexible to accommodate my schedule. I almost feel I owe him. My 5 month corgi, Scout had a blast time with Evan and his puppy. I will definitely contact him for the next boarding. Thanks Evan!

Evan and Cali were the perfect combination for both my red healer and for my family. Evan is friendly and professional, and he kept us up to date on how Ginger was doing during our two-week vacation. Ginger and Cali got along like life-long friends as we could see from Evan's regular picture and video updates.

We really appreciate how Evan makes sure the dogs he cares for (even Cali) are introduced to each other slowly and are kept separated if there are any conflicting personalities. We also like that dogs are fed separately and that toys are kept separate, too, but when dogs are compatible (like Cali and Ginger), it's total play time! We will definitely use Evan again and highly recommend him to others.

This was my puppy Mars's first ever boarding experience and it was great. Evan was very reachable and kept in touch even before the boarding had started. Evan updated us with pictures every few hours and looked like Mars had a great time. I am dropping him off again for the July 4th weekend and I highly recommend Evan.

My dog, Harley, is extremely shy and timid. Evan was great with him and worked through Harley's issues. When I picked Harley up we could tell he was happy and enjoyed his stay (I don't think he wanted to leave). Loved getting multiple pictures and updates daily. Hands down beats a typical boarding place. Can't beat the attention and care that Evan gives your dog. Will definitely use him again for all of our boarding needs!

Great stay for the dogs! Evan sent us pics each day and gave us updates! Would definitely recommend and use him again!
Evan is amazing! I took my pup Luna for a short visit earlier in the week, and she seemed at home right away. Evan has the perfect setup and yard to care for dogs, and it's obvious that he knows a lot about them. His home is spotless, and other dogs I saw there seemed really happy. Luna literally didn't want to leave. She wouldn't get into the car! Today I dropped her for a visit all day, and I could tell by her demeanor that she had a great time. She was all over Evan, giving him hugs and kisses on our way out the door. I think she likes him more than me! An overnight at the vet recently had her in a bit of shock, with tail down and frightened look when I picked her up. What a difference! Evan is the real deal, and his pup Cali is a gentle sweetie who plays really well with my much smaller pup. We've already booked a two-week visit for later this summer, and I won't have any worries knowing she'll be in great hands with someone who really cares.

I can tell you how professional, kind, accommodating and sweet Evan is but what's most important is how much my dog loves him! His house is clean, orderly and he has a great yard for the dogs to get out and play. I highly recommend this vacay spot!
Evan done a great job with my puppy. He was thoughtful and went out of his way to ensure he felt at home. He was kind and sent photos while I had to be away. I highly recommend Evan!
I left my mini schnauzer Dolce with Evan while I attended a conference in Scottsdale, AZ. I had been taking Dolce to a local boarder when I travel for business. When I would pick her up she was anxious, visibly stressed and so I knew I had to try something else. I dreaded leaving her. Evan was recommended by a friend and so I figured I'd give him a shot. He sent pictures of her eating, on walks, playing in the yard. I was so busy with work I didn't have time to respond but slept well knowing she was in good hands. When it was time to come home she wasn't the nervous wreck desperate to be released...She was my Dolce, happy and not worried at all about staying with Evan another day. I cannot be more grateful. I don't typically review but want everyone to know Evan offers a loving environment for your animal and I can see it in how Dolce behaves when she comes home.

Evan was amazing! Our pup Mackey had a great time and was sad to leave her Vacay! I loved the pictures and videos that he sent throughout the stay. We will definitely be looking forward to our next visit with him!

Thank you so much for loving our sweet girl while we were away!!

We are happy that we have found a great sitter on our first try! Evan is very flexible with his time and he even took time to drop our pup at home.

He kept me updated with his pictures through out the day. I wouldn't hesitate to leave my pet with him. My pet found a new friend.

Thank you for all those pictures you sent us over the weekend.

Evan took care of Rico really well. He kept me updated with his pictures through out the day. Rico had fun with Cali. I would be stress free to leave Rico with him whenever I need to go out of town.
Chester loved his time at Evan's hanging with Cali! We are happy to have found a great sitter on our first try!
Evan had a great house and yard for the pups to play in.

He definitely got his exercise and play time in, as he napped all day after picking him up!

Love, love, LOVE Evan!!!
He communicated with us with pics & comments throughout the day. He & Cali are Beau's new best friends.
Thank you Evan, for making our first time away from Beau, stress free for us and him
Beau, being a rescue dog, we had concerns about his separation anxiety... but, he did just fine, and had a wonderful time.
We'll be back!??
