About Thien-Y

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I moved from the DC area in 2012 and have always grown up with and loved dogs! I enjoy going on walks with dogs, whether it's on Shoal Creek Trail, Barton Springs, Red Bud Isle, etc.

I offer dogsitting at my house (a two story duplex) where I have a backyard and a dog. She's a one-year-old lab mix named Moxie, and she is very sweet and playful and gets along great with other dogs!

I also offer dogsitting at the guest's home (essentially, housesitting). I find that both the owners and dogs are often more comfortable doing this so that dogs have their familiar smells, toys, bed, etc. around them. Since I do have my dog, Moxie, it would be preferable if she could stay with me at your place as well. I will, of course, run that by the guest to see if that's OK, as I know it may not be preferable to the guest. Depending on my schedule, it may turn out that I won't necessarily need her to stay with me at your place.

Additionally, I tend to housesit close to where I live and work, which is in the S Lamar/Oltorf (78704) area. However, you can definitely reach out, and I can let you know if the distance to your place may work for me. By housesitting close to where I work, it is convenient for me to stop by during my lunch break and walk, feed and play with your pup. I work Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The photos in my profile are just some of the sweet pups I've dog sat before. I kind of get camera-happy with pups, so expect a lot of photos from me!

Thien-Y was super communicative before and during Evie's recent vacay with her. My pup had just gone through surgery a month earlier so I was especially happy to have Thien-Y stay at my house with her. She came over for a meet and greet the day before to see Evie's routine and ask any questions about the house. Thien-Y is super sweet and enjoyable to chat with! Couldn't have been more pleased, we will definitely book with Thien-Y again.
Great! Thien sent lots of pictures which I loved!! And the boys were worn out after their stay with her and Roxy (who they also loved :))
Thien-Y is great! She watched my bulldog Tank who can be quite the stubborn client. I was updated several times and day and always kept in the loop of how Tank was doing. I came home to a happy girl and would absolutely recommend her to be trusted with your fur babies!
Thien-Y was great! She sent daily pictures of my pup and i came home to a house cleaner than I left it!
Thien-Y was great! It was so nice knowing my pups were being taken care of. I got text and pics a couple times a day to let me know they were safe and they always looked so happy. They were so happy and relaxed being in their own beds.

Ps. It was also such a nice perk to not have to go pick them up from a kennel after getting back to town. I could just go home to my babies!

I will be doing this again for sure!
Thien- Y stayed at our home and watched our 3 year old Weimaraner, Penny Lane, for 14 nights! Our dog can be somewhat stand off'ish with strangers but she warmed up to Thien- Y instantly. She was a dream to work with and was VERY VERY thorough on details before we left. She constantly sent us picture updates and videos which we really loved. Penny looked happy and relaxed when we got home and our house was spotless! During the entire stay we never once felt worried as we knew our pup was in good hands. Not only is she a sweet person, but she really does love animals and they love her. I plan on hiring Thien Y many, many times in the future!
Thien-Y is fantastic! Very easy going and flexible and great with our Labrador, Coop.
Thien-Y was a great doggy host. Pepito absolutely loved her and I always felt comfortable leaving him with her as I would get updates throughout the day. Would highly recommend.
Great host, my dog loved her Vacay.
Thien-Y is great! My dog loves visiting and always comes back happy!
She was wonderful and sent us multiple photos of the little babes while we were away! We would definitely love for her to take care of our dogs again when traveling!
Thien-Y was amazing! My dogs LOVED her. She sent me pictures and updates on my little pups all evening. When I got home Sunday afternoon, my apartment was clean and the dogs were so tired! I will absolutely have Thien-Y stay with Cru and Lucille again.
Thien-Y is the best! Always sends lots of pics & my dog gets SPOILED with her!
Thien-Y watched our dog for a very long summer trip. We were nervous because our dog is a rescue and we have only had her a few months. We set up a shorter 1-night stay prior to this long trip so our dog would be somewhat familiar with Thien-Y and her apartment.
Thien-Y was very flexible with drop-off/pick-up times since she works near her apartment. She can even bring dogs to work sometimes. We liked that and also that she doesn't work Fri-Sun. For one-on-one care, she was a top pick as a host!
We received pictures while we were gone and when we returned, our dog was happy and healthy. We would definitely use Thien-Y again in the future.
Thein-Y was pawsome! She watched Sofie, our mini-Aussie for two weeks while we were out of country and we couldn't be more pleased. She has a calm demeanor about her which balanced nicely to Sofie's more active personality. We received plenty of pictures of Sofie, always smiling and looking cute! Thein-Y has a great rapport with dogs, one that comes naturally. We were confident Sofie was in the best of hands. It was one less thing to worry about when you are a few time zones away. Thanks so much Thien-Y!
Thien-Y is amazing with Loki! It's his home away from home.
Thien-Y is awesome! She is so nice and easy to get along with! I completely trust our dogs with her. I also love that she sens pictures of the dogs every day. I am so happy we found her on dogvacay!
Thien-Y was great! She kept me posted with frequent pictures of Ollie. It's obvious that she adores dogs and enjoys sharing her life with them. I am pretty sure Ollie is glad he met her!
I cannot say enough good things about Thien. My Pearl was exhausted after a fun weekend of adventuring. She looked happy in the pictures and videos I received throughout her stay. She barely even noticed when I arrived to pick her up. I definitely plan on asking Thien to babysit the next time I need a sitter.
Our experience couldn't have been better. She let our spoiled dogs sleep in bed with her, sent us daily pictures/updates, and worked around our crazy schedule. One of our dogs is aggressive to other big dogs, so it was a huge bonus that she doesn't take more than one client at a time!
Thien-Y was very accommodating and communicative throughout my whole visit with her. I had a busy schedule hosting some guests in town for SXSW, so my schedule was all over the place. She graciously accommodated the crazy week for my dog Jax and I. He seemed to be having a blast and she was even able to take him to work with her so he wouldn't be alone! I definitely plan to use her again sometime. Great job, Thien-Y!
I got multiple picture updates every day! Willie came home exhausted from playing & I felt completely comfortable the whole time I was away!
Thien-Y sent us many photos of our dog Mia throughout her stay. She took her on many fun adventures and Mia seemed to have a great time while we were gone. It's so nice to know that your dog is safe, outside and having fun, rather than stuck in a cage somewhere. I'm definitely keeping her number for the future.
Thien-Y agreed to take my dog in at the last minute and was very accommodating with drop-off and pickup. She sent me pictures of the dog lounging around and out on the town every day. I highly recommend Thien-Y as a dog-sitter. My dog couldn't be happier!
Had a great experience with Thien-Y. She was flexible and easy to communicate with. We were able to set up a meet-and-greet before making our reservation so she could meet our dog. She sent pics throughout the stay and kept us updated. All good!
Thien-Y was great. She was flexible about drop-off and pick-up times, and Molly came back happy.
Another amazing experience with Thien-Y! This was my second time to drop off Wrigley w/Thien-Y & I could not have been happier she was available. I was in Mexico w/limited service so I was unable to check in on him while I was gone but I was completely at ease knowing he was in good hands. Once I got home she sent me all of the pictures of their adventures to various parks, him sleeping happily at her work, and I understood why he seemed a little blue that his vacation was over too! Thank you so much Thien-Y!
Great host. Super accommodating. I believe my dog no longer loves me as much as he loves Thien-Y.
Thien-Y was absolutely amazing. I have never left my dog with anyone but family, so I was so nervous. The entire time I was out of town, she sent me pictures of my dog. I could tell she genuinely cared about my dog, and I was so grateful. I would highly recommend Thien-Y to anyone looking for a dog sitter.
Wrigley had such a blast on his stay with Thien-Y. It was my first time using DogVacay after my family bailed on watching him for an upcoming trip. I'm so glad I trusted her reviews and she was available to take care of him. The whole time I received pictures and she was always extremely responsive if I checked in on how he was doing. She even took him to the greenbelt and got him to swim (which usually takes a lot of convincing)! I'm so impressed and appreciative for the amount of care she showed my dog, and for how accommodating she was on the time we dropped up/off. I think he's even a little disappointed his vacation is over now too!
Tyson just loves Thien! He knows her place and runs right in to greet her! It's nice to know that Tyson will not be missing us as Thien is keeping him entertained!
Thien-Y is really friendly, and she was flexible with my drop-off and pick-up schedule. My dog knows A LOT of tricks & commands, and Thien-Y was excited and eager to use them with him. She texted pics of them hiking and videos of him doing some of his tricks.

My dog had been dealing with separation anxiety ever since we moved here and I started a new job, and it was very clear that it was not an issue while staying with Thien-Y! He was happy to see me, but he was clearly sad to leave her. She is our #1 choice for dog-sitting now!
Thien-Y took great care of our two dogs while we were gone for 10 days. Would definitely recommend her and use her again!!!
She's super great with my dog. Sends me updates while I'm gone, and takes great care of my four - legged fur baby!
Thien-Y is fantastic! My dog didn't actually stay with her due to a change in plans, but we had several email interactions and a meet & greet. I found her upbeat, cooperative and very responsive. I will definitely reserve with her next time my doggies need a home away from home.
Thien is awesome! She made my dog feel so at-home. She took pictures of my happy dog and texted them to me so I would know that all was well.
I haven't been in Austin long, and really needed a place for my dog to stay during my Reserve drills. DogVacay made fin a place quick and painless, and Thien-Y made drop-off and pick-up really easy. The multiple pictures each day were great. They really helped me to feel better about leaving Dakota somewhere completely new. Dakota was happy and healthy when I picked her up and almost seemed to miss Thien-Y when we left. If that's not a good sign, I don't know what is.
She is awesome! My dog really liked her. She kept me updated frequently. even sent photos of my puppy. highly recommend her. I will definitely use her again.
She was wonderful and the dogs loved her! I will definitely use her again. It made traveling so much less stressful knowing she was with the dogs. She sent updates and pictures of the pups daily. I highly recommend Thien-Y.
Thien-Y was awesome! We highly recommend her. She got back to us really fast after we made our reservation. She's not new to this and you can be assured that your dog is in good hands. We received pictures of our dog, and Thien-Y was always available when we wanted to check up and see how our dog was doing. We don't have to worry about where our dog anymore when we visit Austin as long as Thien-Y is there. If you're still reading this review and have not made a reservation yet, then I must not have done my job. Thien-Y is awesome and your dog will have a great experience!!!
We have used Thien-Y to watch our dog (Kali) a few times now. She is fantastic! As soon as Kali realizes she is at Thien-Y's house she starts wagging her tail. I absolutely love receiving pictures from Thien-Y of Kali while we are away. My dog means the world to me so it's really nice to have someone like Thien-Y to watch her while we are away.
Our pups had a blast with Thien-Y! She was absolutely great to work with -- very communicative and reliable. She was in communication with us daily and sent much-desired pics. This was our first DogVacay experience and we were very pleased with the results. Hoping to see Thien-Y again soon!
Thien-Y took excellent care of my dog Chopper. She sent me lots of pictures and made sure he got plenty of exercise. I highly recommend her. Thanks.
Thien-Y was amazing. We left our seven month old English Bulldog, Elvis, with her after our sitter canceled. She was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times. She took amazing care of our high maintenance little pup. He had a great time, and was nice and worn out when we picked him up. She sent us updates and pictures the whole time to keep us from worrying. This was our first experience with Dog Vacay and it was a great one. We will definitely be using Thien-Y again in the future!!!!!
Thien-Y was great! My dog got to go to work from her, and I could tell that he got a lot of walks in the park and attention from the photos that she sent me! He was very happy and relaxed when I went to go pick him up.
Thien-Y is great! Our dog has been sleeping since we picked him up, she wore him out! We definitely will use her again.
So in point of fact: my dog Bruce Wayne is the world's greatest dog. And doesn't the world's greatest dog deserve the world's greatest dog sitter? Of course he does!! And I couldn't have asked for a better experience with Thien-Y. Bruce is a rescue, with a host of nervous ticks, and I was quite frankly worried about leaving him with ANYONE. Thien-Y set my mind at ease right away, and he took to her immediately. She updated me over the weekend with photos, and I'd definitely recommend her to anyone.
Thien-Y was very responsive, friendly and accommodating. This was our first experience with DogVacay and we were very happy with the whole experience. Thien-Y was great to work with and we will likely have her keep Nala on our future vacations.
We were VERY happy with Thien-Y. She replied to my message right away and was very accommodating to setup a meet and greet. While we were away, Thien-Y sent us pictures of our puppy daily which we loved. When we picked our dog up, she seemed happy as can be! We will definitely be using Thien-Y again.
Thien -Y was great! My puppy was exhausted when I picked him up, he had a long weekend playing with other dogs and going to the farmer's market! I was sent updates and pictures via phone everyday and felt completely confident that my baby was in good hands. Will definitely be using her services again!
Thien-Y made us feel so comfortable right from the start at our Meet and Greet. I loved getting pictures of our dog Mylo throughout the weekend. I know he enjoyed his walk along the trail and at the dog park. He was so calm and relaxed when we got home, that I knew he had a great time. Thank you, Thien-Y, for taking such great care of Mylo!
Second time for Thien to take care of Laila and I had no worries! She is great and would recommend her for any dog sitting needs.
Thien was very sweet and flexible with my VERY last minute reservation. My Laila quickly forgot who I was and was knocked out the entire afternoon after her stay. She must have had a lot of fun!
I can't say enough good things about booking with Thien-Y. My apartment was having issues and I needed to find somewhere to stay the hot summer night as well as for my dog, Luigi meanwhile they fixed the issue. I booked online with Thien-Y and she responded quickly (same-day) and messaged me to let me know that she would take good care of Luigi. We scheduled a time that worked for both of us to drop off and pick up Luigi. Thien-Y is super-friendly and eager to be helpful, a great resource/place for people new to Dogvacay. She is in a great location near Auditorium Shores where dogs can run around without a leash and have some fun. Overall an excellent experience!
Where do I even start - well first of all Thien-Y was my first experience with DogVacay, and from start to finish she was an absolute dream to work with. She was very responsive and accommodating to any question/concern/ or request I might have had. I was in a hurry to get things together for a last minute trip, and the one thing I did not have to stress or worry about was my pets accommodations. Thien-Y was understanding of my situation and she made sure that Luigi was well taken care of. This place really is the epitome of what DogVacay is about - great people helping pet owners find someone the pet will will enjoy on their vacay without them having to stay in just kennels. Her condo was just as described, in a great location - and just the right size for Luigi! I highly recommend Thien-Y's services.
