About Carlos

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Working from home has its perks, like being able to spend all day with our dog! We live near the Six Corners area and are surrounded by big parks, tons of pet stores, and amazing vets.

We specialize in small dogs who are NOT big fans of loud noises or tons of excitement. Maya is the resident Chihuahua and she is an older lady. She likes her peace, her quiet, and her belly rubs. There are no children in the house, loud noises, or a lot of activity going on.

We only watch one dog at a time to make sure our doggie guests receive a great deal of attention and care. We offer a safe, quiet, and relaxing environment, complete with walks in a quiet neighborhood, a fully fenced and locked back yard, and plenty of love and interaction.

If your pooch has tons of energy and requires a lot of excitement, we wouldn't be a good fit for you. However, if your doggie wants to relax in a quiet environment, wants to go for regular walks, and enjoys being in company of adults, then let's meet!

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. I work from home and with the exception of a trip to the grocery store or an occasional meeting, I'm always around.

We look forward to meeting you!

Carlos is very knowledgeable of dog behavior and wellness; when he takes care of my shih tzu Chirpa he is always able to give me suggestions about diet, behavior modification or skin care since Chirpa has skin sensitivities. His chihuahua Maya is so well behaved and super cute, you can see that he takes really good care of her and treats her like family. He also takes the dogs in long walks to the park, which they always love! I would highly recommend Carlos to anyone who needs someone responsible and loving to care for their fur baby.

Carlos and Betty are absolutely wonderful. They communicate as much as you'd like and I could tell Diego was very happy in their home!
Best hosts we've ever had! Very kind people. Genuinely love dogs. Sent updates and nice pictures to us everyday! Highly recommend!
Carlos is a wonderful host! His home is very clean and he has a great back yard. Carlos was very accommodating to my schedule (even with my delayed flight home) and stayed in constant communication with me while Diego was with him. I also received multiple pictures a day, which I loved! The communication and photos allowed me to enjoy my vacation knowing that Diego was a happy camper. I was so pleased with the services provided by Carlos I have already planned my pup's next stay with him!
