About Patricia

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have no dogs or cats of our own anymore, and we miss having pets around. (We have owned a golden retriever, a beagle, a boston terrier, and 3 bichons, several mutts as well as cats.)

Where it says that we only keep 1 dog at a time, that means as many dogs as are in the same family. For (2 or more) dogs in the same family, we charge $75 for every 24-hour period. One dog is $50 for every 24-hour period.

We have a nice, fenced back yard (see photo) and also a walking path a few blocks away. My husband and I enjoy pampering pooches of all types and sizes from toy yorkies to Bernese mountain dogs (like the one in the photo that we have sat with for years).

We never crate a pet unless the pet is more comfortable in its own crate and only if it prefers it's crate to roaming free. Our house is pet proof and we let them have the run of the house. We let them lounge on our distressed leather sofa with us; and small dogs can sleep with us on the end of our bed. Large dogs can sleep on a quilt at the foot of our bed. In the spring and summer, it's fun to let the dogs dine "al fresco" (i.e. have picnics in the back yard with placemats.)

We like to keep your pet on the exact same waking, eating, walking and sleeping schedule that he/she is accustomed to.

Since my husband had his triple bypass surgery, he walks 4 miles every day in the neighborhood walking park and loves to take a dog companion along.

We are retired and at least one of us is always at home. WE SPECIALIZE IN DOGS WITH SEPARATION ANXIETY as we had a rescue dog (Bichon) with that diagnosis who lived to be over 20 years old!

I just purchased an off-the floor cot for those older dogs who have arthritis or joint problems. (see last photo)

I left my pup (4 year old retriever) for the first time ever this past weekend and it was an unbelievably amazing experience. Pat put me at ease the moment we went in for a "meet and greet" and Rex loved her! She put my mind at ease and I could leave town without worrying about Rex. I am a worrier and Rex is my baby- I cannot thank Pat enough for making this whole process smooth! She is just incredible! :)

We had a wonderful experience with Pat sitting for our 3 dogs at our house last weekend. Pat sent us periodic updates and pictures, and was always very responsive. We have already booked Pat for some upcoming trips, and highly recommend her!
Pat was fantastic and very easy to work with. Pat was very good about staying in touch and sending us pictures of our pet enjoying a Fourth of July picnic! I would definitely recommend leaving your loved pet or pets with her. Overall very happy with my pet's vacation!

Pat was wonderful! They don't get much better than her at taking excellent care of your babies. She truly is a pleasure to know and have as someone we could count on in our time of need. Thanks again Pat for providing a safe and comfortable stay for our lil' furry goofballs.

Laila and Luke had another great stay with Pat!
Pat is incredible!!! Great with our two boys! Kept us updated with pictures and the boys had a blast.
Pat is absolutely amazing and we will definitely rebook with her when our Charlie needs a place to stay. We've never felt so comfortable leaving him as we did with Pat. She gave continuous updates to us and plenty of love to Charlie. He wasn't stressed or anxious at all. Thank you Pat!!!!

Luke and Laila had another great stay with Pat. Thank you!
The only word I can think of to describe Pat is absolutely amazing!! We have never felt so comfortable leaving our chocolate lab, Mya, in someone else's care.

Mya is older and has several medical issues as well as separation anxiety. I could not have asked for someone more kind and caring to take care of her.

Pat is very detail oriented and goes above and beyond to make sure your pet is well taken care of and made to feel at home!!

Our three dogs had a wonderful stay with Pat! It was obvious that she had taken loving care of our furbabies, and we will definitely use Pat again!
Thanks for taking such good care of little Oliver! We will be back!
What a wonderful experience!!! This was Oliver's first time away from home, and Patricia was so great with him! I felt at ease leaving him with her, and loved getting updates while we were away...
Another great stay with Pat & Walter! Lucie had an awesome staycation! Highly recommend! xoxoxoxo
Another delightful stay at Pat & Walter's with daily notes and photos, and a happy dog at pickup time!

It had been a while since Lucie had a staycation yet she remembered Mrs. Pat with a wagging tail at drop-off. Mrs. Pat is always so sweet and seemed genuinely happy to see Lucie as well!

Lucie is an elderly girl who requires lots of medications, including eye drops and insulin injections. Mrs. Pat handles these special needs like a pro and we never worry while we are away.

Lucie highly recommends Pat & Walter's for your pups' staycations! You won't be disappointed!

Our furry girl stayed with Mrs. Pat for three weeks while we were out of country and we all had a fabulous experience! Lucie is a senior dog with multiple medical issues and dietary restrictions; she requires oral medications and insulin injections, plus it is often a challenge to get Lucie to eat with limited food options available. She has been well spoiled and is used to having almost constant human attention, so it was important to us that she be cared for in the same manner during our absence. We chose Pat & Walter for this reason and were not disappointed! Mrs. Pat kept us up-to-date with notes and photos via email, and our girl was happy and healthy when we returned. Lucie was full of kisses when we picked her up - not only for us, but she gave lots of kisses to Mrs. Pat too! Lucie clearly was well loved and cared for, which we are thrilled by. Pat & Walter charge a little more than others in the area, but rest assured they are worth every single penny. We will definitely use Pat & Walter again and again, and highly recommend them for your fur babies!

This couple was nice & polite. My dog seemed to be well cared for by the pictures that were sent, but not sure it was worth the $50/day that was paid.
Pat and Walter are like Dodgers loving Grandparents! They snuggled and played all day and Dodger came home so happy ! I highly reccomend these doggy sitters to anyone who wants their baby to feel totally at home while you are away !
Laila and Luke had a great stay with Pat and Walter. We are so happy to have found such a wonderful couple to take care of our four legged babies while we are out of town. Thank you Pat and Walter!
Mindy had a great time staying with Walter and Pat. This was the first time we have left our dog anywhere. She is an older rescue dog we adopted earlier this year and she likes a calm, quiet environment. That is one of the reasons I choose Pat and Walter.

The daily photos and communications gave me piece of mind.

When we went to pick her up she was happy to see us, but I think she would be just as happy staying with them. As Pat mentioned when I picked her up, keeping the same routine was reassuring to Mindy. She adjusted quite quickly to the new environment.

I know that we can go away and we can leave Mindy will be with people who love her as much as we do.

Thanks again Pat and Walter.

Oh my gosh! Pat was so wonderful with Dodger! We loved the pictures she sent every day to let us know how he was doing! She even had a doggy picnic for him one of the days! Really liked that she didn't have another dog for Dodger to contend with! Using her again at Thanksgiving!

This was our first time to leave the girls so we were a little concerned about how they would handle it.

When we returned home, while they were both happy to see us, they were calm and contented. As a matter of fact, Lucy was nosing Walter's leg trying to get him to pet her as we were leaving.

We also really liked their one dog family only rule since our girls are sort of little divas and don't play well with others.

We will definitely call them for our next trip.

Once again Pat and Walter exceed our expectations with regard to the care they give our "little girl" when we travel. We are so grateful to have such loving people looking after the canine member of our family.
Patricia and Walter were wonderful with Cookie! They sent us updates and pictures during her stay which more than reassured us that she was having a great time. It was so nice knowing that she was getting such great care and personal attention while we were away.

Pat and Walter were so good with my dogs. The girls were loved and cared for as if they were their own! We now have a wonderful place to leave the dogs whenever we go out of town!
Wonderful! We'll definitely be using Pat & Walter again for our baby! We loved the daily pictures!
Laila had another wonderful stay with Pat and Walter. Thank you for taking such good care of her.
An absolutely wonderful couple that took wonderful care of our two babies. Pat and Walter took care of our two dogs over the weekend of my wedding. Our puppy got a little sick and had an upset tummy and Pat and Walter took wonderful care of him and sent us great pictures of them while they were away. Would definitely recommend!

This was our dog Maui’s second time with Pat and Walter but this time was much longer and we were hopeful and nervous for how things would go. We relocated to Texas several months ago and Maui no longer had the people she knew looking after her when we went away. Well, Pat and Walter have saved the day! Maui seemed so contented when we picked her up that it appeared as if she would rather stay with them than come home with us. And as doggy “parents” you couldn’t ask for anything better. Pat and Walter are just wonderful and we are so very grateful for the love and care they show our baby girl. (And she is not such a baby anymore at 13.) Thank God that these kind people have opened their home to care for other people’s dogs.

Coco was in excellent and loving hands, again, with Pat & Walter. We never worry about her when she't staying with them!
Patricia and Walter are the absolute perfect match for my dogs.

First, their house is gorgeous, with a big backyard.

Second, they don't mix "families." My boxer doesn't get along well with strange dogs at first. So I don't have to worry about her fighting with someone else's dog.

Third, both Patricia and Walter are fantastic hosts. I can't tell you enough how comfortable I felt with them from the very moment I stepped foot in their house. It's was no brainer to choose them as my preferred hosts.

This was Laila's second stay with Pat and Walter. We were impressed again with the care she received. We highly recommend Pat's Pampered Pets!
We recently relocated to Texas and found ourselves suddenly without the support system of our former home. We never kennel our dog and were looking for someone who would take care of her in a loving and caring environment. Well, we need look no further as we have found Pat and Walter. Taking Maui, our 13 year old terrier mix, to their home was like leaving her with family. We are so pleased and plan to take her there again in the future. We would not hesitate to recommend Pat's Pampered Pets to anyone!

We are very impressed! Pat & Walter took a personal interest in Gus (our Bulldog). They sent us daily reports and photos which really put us at ease as Gus had been having some minor health issues and we were a bit concerned about him.
It was obvious that they had made Gus a part of the family as he seemed right at home when we went to pick him up. We can without hesitation recommend Pat & Walter as exceptional hosts.
We will certainly call on them again.

It was so great to have Pat and Walter take care of our girls. It was obvious how much they love pets and how much they made their lovely home available to them. We felt so comfortable and worry free knowing that they were taking care of them. We would definitely use them again and would definitely recommend them to anyone that wanted to leave their pets in a secure and loving environment.

As usual, Coco had a great stay with Pat & Walter! She was happy to see them, and was happy, healthy, and spoiled when I came to pick her up. We never worry about Coco when we leave her with Pat & Walter, because we know she is loved and cared for like she was their own.

Pat and Walter were great! It was a wonderful experience and we will definitely leave Laila with them again.
We loved the care that Pat and Walter provided for our Yorkie, Cookie! They are very friendly and welcoming, and you can tell they love dogs. They sent us photos of Cookie while we were away. Will definitely use them again next time we visit Dallas!
We can't say enough about how wonderful Pat and Walter where to Coco. Simply, she became part of their family during her stay and was lovingly and completely cared for. We received regular emails updating us on Coco's stay, as well as pictures of her which we always looked forward to. Not only did Coco enjoy her time with them, but it allowed us to enjoy our vacation even more, knowing Coco was well cared for and that we did not have to worry about her at all. We could not have been more happy and satisfied with Pat and Walter. Coco will definitely be going on more "Dog Vacays" with them!

I knew from our "meet and greet" session that Pat and Walter were going to be the perfect doggie sitters for my two little Papillons.

They are the nicest people!

We visited for over two hours and during that time,
Roudy snuggled up to Pat and fell asleep!!
Rudy was more inquisitive and roamed the house.
They didn't mind at all....Walter even got down in the floor to encourage him to play.

While we were away, we received photos and
I could tell they had settled in quite nicely.
Rudy looked like royalty up in the middle of their bed. Roudy was resting peacefully on a chair.

I also received emails from Pat letting me know that they were being good little boys. Both were eating as expected and sleeping well. No "accidents" in the house!

I will definitely recommend Pat and Walter to my friends and relatives!

Thanks to both of them, my little Papillons had
a very nice visit and came home acting normal and happy! In the past, they acted like they were in shock when I picked them up from boarding!

I can't thank them enough!!

This was our first experience with DogVacay and we couldn't be more pleased! Pat and Walt took extra special care of our very energetic pup while we were out of town for a week. He received 24/7 attention, daily long walks, playtime and lots of love! We really enjoyed the pictures and updates they sent us every day - it made our vacation so much better knowing Shiner was happy and well taken care of. We love to travel but always hated leaving our boy at a kennel; now we have found the perfect solution to that dilemma!
