About Chris

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Whether you are going to Austin for the day or headed home for the holidays, I'd be happy to treat your pup like my own! I am a dog-loving PhD student at A&M, and I have a sweet and playful blue-heeler/lab mix named Marie Curie that loves company.

I've done lots of pet-sitting, and have had several types and breeds over, and we get along with everyone. We always do a minimum of 3 walks a day, sometimes more, and we often go to the dog park. We are flexible about feeding schedules and I am happy to administer oral meds if needed. During the week, I work from 8-5, so please take that into consideration; your pup should be ok being watched by another dog during the day. Weekends are lots of extra walks and more park time. Marie is the perfect companion dog; she knows to back off and be relaxed around older dogs, and for the energetic ones, they will come back nice and tired!

I hope to hear from you soon! Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Chris is excellent with dogs, and is very concerned with their health and safety. His apartment is dog-proofed, and he provides a fun, relaxed environment for dog visitors. My own dog is always super happy to head over to Chris' where there are several comfy surfaces and tons of dog toys and rawhides. His own dog, Marie, is a bundle of joy and wiggles and loves every dog and human she's ever met. Chris will take great care of any dog in his house, and spoil them with pats and playtime.

Chris did a great job! Dino had the best time, she was passed out the entire day afterwards from all the playing (which is really hard to get to that point). Chris also sent many pictures throughout the stay. Thank you!
