Emily took care of my 4 cats for 2 weeks over Christmas and she was awesome. I always received timely updates with pictures and descriptions of everything the kitties did. When I got home, everything was clean and the kitties seemed well-fed and happy. Emily was very informative and responsive to emails/texts.

I work as an RN, doing 12 hour shifts, so I knew when I got a puppy at 8 weeks old I would need a dog walker to help me . I had to return to work and couldn't find a walker that I felt comfortable with. Emily and her husband Scott came to my home and met Bella. She had me fill out paperwork that asked questions about Bella and what I needed. We started out with her visiting Bella 3 times a day. She sends me videos & pictures of Bella walking, playing, learning new tricks & commands. She also sends a map of where they travel and messages to tell me what they did while on their daily adventures. I have never found someone so compassionate and tuned into what an animal as well as the parent needs. My hours are erratic and I have called Emily to come walk Bella when I've been called into work last minute. She has never failed me. She has informed me when she notes something off about Bella. Emily has even gone by my vet to pick up heart worm meds that I needed and couldn't pick up. Her prices are more than reasonable and she spends more time with Bella than she charges me. I'm not normally a review writer but I had to write about Emily's amazing gift & work ethic. Emily thank you from the bottom of my heart. You're the best.

We are a long time client of Emily's, and I can't say enough good things about her! Our two boys absolutely adore her, and I swear she captures better photos of them than I ever have. She is my go-to sitter, has a great attitude even though I plan at the last minute, and she always makes sure to text every visit to say that our dogs are well taken of.
She also goes above and beyond what is asked. We were out of town during the whole Harvey situation, and she kept us updated with everything with potential high winds and flooding! She helped put away the patio furniture and everything without me asking, that's really something. :)

"Usually my fur babies seem lonely and anxious for attention when I come home from a trip, but this time, they seemed so much happier! Emily was clearly incredibly attentive, and both my fur babies loved her. She took pics every day and gave us quality updates on how each of them were doing. I'm definitely using her services again for all my trips in the future! The main take away from this is that I finally feel like I won't be stressed about the animals when I'm trying to be on vacation. Emily gives me and my spouse peace of mind."

"Emily has been our petsitter for our elderly(ish) cats for almost a year. She is reliable and provides pictures and updates every day we're away. Emily is also happy to grab your mail, put out your trash and water plants. With our busy travel schedules, she's been a lifesaver and I always know my girls are receiving excellent care. Recently, our AC went out while we were away. Emily let us know immediately and got some fans going so the house would remain a comfortable temp--great customer service....I highly recommend Austin's Howlin' Hounds!"

"Emily was my Dog Walker/Care taker for Banzai my Australian Shepard/Blue Heeler mix. She was absolutely amazing with him and he loved seeing her every day. She even got him to start fetching and really playing with other dogs at the dog park! Banzai did overnights with her when I had to go out of town and he was well taken care of, I even got photos and updates. You should use Austin's Howlin' Hounds if you need a Dog Walker/Caretaker in the Austin area!"
