About Bev and Art

We are a retired couple who are without a dog for the first time in many years, since our (fifth) schnauzer Max crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We're left with our two mature cats, Ginger and Heidi. We live in a quiet, seniors-only apartment complex. I (Bev) am a volunteer with the no-kill pet rescue facility Friends For Life.

We have lots of time and love to devote to your furry treasure. We will care for him as though he is ours and he will not be left alone. As long as we have a boarder in our apartment, one or both of us will be here. Your dog will be walked for exercise and potty breaks frequently, at which time he can check (and respond to) his pee-mail without being rushed. We do not book dogs in our home from two different families at once.

We are limited to one small dog in our apartment complex, but have no problem working with multiples or with larger dogs in your home. Advantages to in-home care include 1) your dogs are in familiar surroundings and 2) your home is not left unattended while you're away.

We also care for cats in your home. The rate is the same as for dogs, and a discount may be given for multiple cats.

We are conveniently located about 3 miles east of U.S.59/I-69 and within 15 minutes of IAH.

The rates listed for overnight boarding in our home or overnight sitting in your home, as well as day care, are per dog. These figures may vary up or down, depending on the size of the dog, the hours required, holidays, etc. Custom quotes can be provided prior to any commitment by you or us.

Please be aware that our calendar tends to fill up pretty quickly from April through December, then we have about a three-month lull. You're more likely to get the time slot you need by booking sooner rather than later.

PLEASE NOTE: Dogs must be completely housebroken, and free of fleas and ticks.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our page. We look forward to working with you.

Mozart absolutely loves Bev and Art! We are going to miss them as we are moving away!
Art and Bev are wonderful! This was our first time to use DogVacay and Art and Bev were our first introduction. I am so glad we found the service and found them. Using the system has been a breeze and I could not have been happier with the care that our little dog Blythe received while we were gone. I have already made several other reservations and I no longer feel the stress of having to figure out what to do when we go out of town. Art and Bev are the solution for us.

Our family recently went out of town and left Ms. Chloe with Art and Bev. I left knowing our dog was in good hands. They are a very kind and loving couple and we will definitely use them again in the future.
We have a kitty who is terrified of being out of her environment so we needed a cat sitter who would be willing to stay in our home for a week while we were gone. Bev was happy to do that for us, and did a wonderful job pet/house sitting! Our kitty was healthy and happy when we returned and I swear, our house was cleaner than when we left! I will definitely schedule with this couple again in the future!!

I simply can not say enough great things about Bev and Art! Art stayed at our house with our two dogs for a week - and I think by the end of it our dogs liked him more than us! Not only did he take exemplary care of our dogs, but when we returned the house was possibly in better shape than we left it, the yard was clean and pool was in fantastic shape. The day before we left for our trip one of our dogs was not feeling well. Art came over to pick up the keys, noticed it and reassured my husband that he would keep an eye on her and if anything happened he would take her to the vet. The next day he sent us pictures of the dogs and a note that they were doing very well - and he continued to send little notes and pictures letting us know they were playing, eating and happy. It was such a relief to know that our dogs were in such great hands. He was even great with our high anxiety dog - I would recommend them to anyone!!

We think of Art and Bev as family. Sophie loves to visit. We never worry about her care. We would never consider leaving her with anyone else.
Bev and Art are the perfect pair to sit for you. They updated our facebook page with photos and updates about our pup Noah while we were out of the country. They were very knowledgeable and took such good care of him. She made sure she had emergency contact info for him in case of emergency and he was taken on plenty walks with Art.

Bev and Art are like part of the family now - a very valuable part! Our dogs love them, and so do we!
They take all the worries out of leaving the fur kids at home, making our travel experience greatly enriched. Can't say enough great things about them!

Bev and Art were fabulous, as usual! Both my dogs were truly happy, healthy and well cared for in my absence. Another successful visit! Puppy kisses from Lobo and Sienna - deep appreciation from my husband and myself!
Bev and Art were great hosts for my dog, Sami! They have cared for her multiple times and I never had to worry about how Sami would do in my absence with them.

Unfortunately we've moved away from Houston and I've had trouble finding another host as great as them. They've set the bar high!

I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND ART & BEV FOR YOUR PET SITTING.
MISS TILLIE LOVES STAYING WITH BEV & ART. SHE GETS LOTS OF WALK TIME, PLAY TIME, & MOST IMPORTANTLY...LOTS OF SNUGGLE TIME. SHE GETS EXCITED WHEN WE GET OFF THE ELEVATOR, & MAKES A BEE LINE FOR THEIR DOOR.
BEV & ART ARE DEFINITELY ANIMAL LOVERS, & TREAT TILLIE AS IF SHE WERE ONE IF THEIR OWN.
I GIVE THEM 5 THUMBS UP. :-)

Lovely dog lovers! Our shy dog likes visiting and keeping an eye on their two cats for them. Caution: your dog may return home bit more spoiled! Thanks, Bev and Art!
This was the second time we left our dogs in the care of Art and Bev - the first time being a couple of months ago. When Art arrived for the repeat stay, it was heartwarming to watch the dogs do their "I'm so overjoyed to see you" greeting! Full body wag and plenty of kisses made it plain that they not only remembered Art, but loved him dearly. This is the best testimony of all! It's so great going on vacation when you know your dogs are not only cared for, but very, very happy as well. Thanks, Art and Bev, for another great dog vacay
experience!

Bev and Art are solid gold - a real answer to prayer! On any level you care to consider they are top notch. They are true dog lovers, with the utmost of integrity, reliability, and trustworthiness. Great communication as well. We plan to leave our beloved pets with them from now on!

As usual, Bev and Art were wonderful with Sophie. She loves visiting with them. They take care of her and treat her like she was theirs. I will certainly use them exculsively. Sophie sends doggie kisses to Bev and Art.
Art and Bev were fabulous. My dog absolutely loved them and they treated her like she was their own. I would not hesitate for one second to have them watch her again. I am truly thankful for their kindness.
We left our 13 year old dog with Art and Bev for almost 2 weeks. They provided excellent care and I would highly recommend them. I think our dog, Bernie, was almost disappointed when we got back.
Bev and Art were wonderful sitters. They treated Sophie like she was theirs. Sophie was happy and well adjusted. We did not have to worry about her care. Bev also sent pictures and texted me every day and always had something funny to say. We will definitely reserve with Bev and Art again.
