Pets Crave Love™ is the dogwalking service in Austin for people who want only the best care for their dogs.


It all started when we left our dogs with a nonprofessional for 3 days.

It was an innocent mistake. “Brittany” was a friend-of-a-friend and dog-lover we hired to care for our dogs while we went on a 3-day vacation. Surely we could trust a friend’s recommendation!

1st day: Brittany sends some pictures.

2nd day: I wake up to a text “Where’s the dog food?” Because of course she hadn’t fed them the first day. (She thought we had fed them.) Because she hadn’t read the very detailed instructions I left on the counter.

3rd day: While driving home I receive the text no pet owner wants to receive. “The dogs got into a fight and Tag can’t walk.”

WHAT?! My dogs had never had any kind of fight before (and haven’t since, thank you very much). What on earth had happened?

“I wasn’t sure what to do so I left to run errands. Sorry.”

My elderly dog Tag had nerve damage and had to stay at the hospital on fluids. We discovered urine and feces in her crate, meaning she was either stressed out or not let out. Or both.

I know you’re cringing from my story. I felt like I had failed my dogs. I was so ashamed.

My husband and I cried and resolved that never again would we leave our dogs in the care of anyone other than a trained professional. That’s why I started Pets Crave Love™.

Pets Crave Love™ Believes:

Fresh food + outdoor exercise + enrichment + love = happy, healthy dogs

We are the only dogwalking service in Austin with a proprietary, evidence-based dog care protocol.

When you hire me and Pets Crave Love, you and your dog benefit from my 30+ years of training, showing, and caring for dogs. I’ve also trained and worked with well-known dog trainers and veterinarians such as Dr. Sophia Yin, Sarah Stremming CPDT-KA, and Susan Garrett.

Most importantly, I have developed the Pets Crave Love™ Protocol which is focused on:

  • Proper dog nutrition
  • Exercise & enrichment
  • Health & safety
  • Dog behavior & science-based reinforcement training

(You know – everything dogs need to live healthy, satisfied lives.)

I personally oversee each of my walkers’ training through FetchFind in addition to training them on the Pets Crave Love™ protocol. Each of my employees undergoes a background check and certification on Pet First Aid and CPR through ProPetHero.

We know all of your dogs personally. Because we’re small and independent.

We know Penny, a 12-year-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi who once upon a time was labeled “autistic” by a “dog trainer.” Neither of her moms were sure Penny would go outside without her slip leash. After patience, care, positive reinforcement and encouragement, Penny now greets us at her gate daily. She wasn’t autistic – just shy! Penny doesn’t need her leash to go out in the backyard anymore.

And then there’s Lulu and Milo, who love spying on squirrels and checking their peemail before we give them their afternoon treat.

And there’s Jake, who greets us only by showing us his “babies” (stuffed toys). When we met him, he was taking anti-anxiety medication in addition to recovering from a leg injury. So we sat on the floor with him and fed him frozen broccoli (his favorite), and soon Jake loved seeing us while his parents were at work. We’re proud to say we did such a good job helping Jake that he grew to love the schedule and no longer needs his anti-anxiety meds!

Have you heard of Moses? He’s the local Onion Creek celebrity and more famous than Harry Styles. Mo ADORES people (other dogs, not so much) and his mom loves knowing he’s in great hands while she’s at work. After every walk, Moses gets fresh refrigerated water, a belly rub, and a treat. Maybe 2 treats if we did a hill that day.

As you can see, when your dogs are in our care, they will receive the loving care we want our own dogs to have.


Because no matter who is caring for them, pets crave love.

Your pets are our passion. Their care is our obsession.

When you leave the house and trust us with their care,

You will breathe a huge sigh of relief. We’ll take the leash from here.
