About Carin

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am an animal-lover at heart, and live in Houston, TX with my furrbabies: Lola the 13-yr-old pit bull, and Nikita, the 10-yr-old snow bengal. As a mom to a somewhat grouchy pup and a scared-y cat, I know how important it is to keep a consistent, familiar atmosphere for the furrkids, for their sanity and mine. That's why I want to help you with your pet care needs by providing quality care for your furry family in the comfort of your own home. I can help out with:
- mid-day or early evening visits to help your pup burn off some excess energy while you're stuck at work
- 2-3 daily visits when you're out of town, for business or pleasure, to care for your pets and give your home a lived-in vibe
- pet taxi to the vet or groomer's when your schedule is packed
(Note: I am temporarily suspending overnight sitting services, but am still available for walks and check-ins! )

Every service you book with me will include a progress report on how your pet did, so you'll know they're in good hands.

I have experience with a range of domestic pets, but mostly work with dogs (large or small) and cats (friendly or shy). I have experience with large, "aggressive" breed pups with stranger issues, pups with leash fear or pulling issues, and those that suffer from separation anxiety or escape-artist-itis. I have made fast friends with cats that normally run and hide or hiss and spit. I look forward to helping you take care of your furry (or feathery or scaly) kids.

Carin is a great pet sitter and I am always comfortable leaving my pets in her care. Samantha is always happy to see her and spend time with her. Carin is very responsible and I recommend her as a pet sitter.

Carin is extremely responsible and dependable. She has watched our three dogs on multiple occasions (in our home) and I have complete peace of mind that they are being well taken care of. I love that Carin sends pictures & updates of the dogs, and she communicates promptly and professionally. Highly recommend!

Carin made me feel very comfortable about leaving my pets with a pet sitter for the first time. She was super thorough in making sure she had all the necessary details. You can tell she takes it very seriously which is reassuring. She had great communication and sent me updates that let me know exactly what was going on. I will definitely use her again in the future!

Carin did a great job with my pup. I came home to a happy dog. It was my first time using this ap and Carin made me comfortable asking all the right questions to ensure she did a great job!
If I could give Carin more than five stars, I would. She really helped my family out and went above and beyond what we asked her to do. All we needed was for her to change the litter box and feed the cats every couple of days, but in addition to that, we received pics of her loving on the cats, videos of her playing with the cats, and regular updates on the health and wellbeing of the cats.

She is incredibly responsive and reliable. I cannot speak more highly of her.
