Home & Pet Sitting in Austin, TX
Hi there! My name is Regina, and I'm excited to tell you a little about our little family. My husband and I have two passions in life: dogs and travel. We both work from home, so we’re able to spend a lot of time with our three dogs when we're not bouncing around the world.
My husband, Ian, is a full-time entrepreneur and I used to be a high school English teacher. In 2017 I quite my job to help Ian with his business. When people ask what I do, I jokingly respond, "I'm a stay-at-home dog mom:" when I'm not helping out with the business or cooking, I'm taking care of our little ladies: feeding, bathing, grooming, cuddling, etc....
We do our best to be respectful and courteous to all living beings, animal and human alike. In our spare time we enjoy outdoor activities, such as hiking and cycling, as well as watching movies and finding new and interesting restaurants. More than anything, we love our dogs, traveling around the world, and making new friends.
Thank you for considering our home! + More info

The neighborhood is very quiet, with only one entrance/exit. Downtown Round Rock is very close by: a 30 minute walk/ 15 min bike ride/ 10 min drive. There you'll find several local restaurants, coffee shops, the famous Round Rock Doughnuts, and other fun shops.
The Dell Diamond, where you can watch a baseball game or attend other events, is located 2.8 miles away. The airport is located 29 miles away. Though removed from central Austin, the highways and tolls roads make the city easily accessible. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Outside of the care of our dogs, we try to keep things simple. We've put together a detailed "House and Pet Manual" for your convenience that details everything from when to feed the dogs to how to access our streaming services.
Because we’re home most of the time, our dogs have a pretty steady routine:
- feeding (breakfast, snack time, and dinner)
- bathroom breaks (4x/day)
- medication administration (morning only)
Our dogs are used to having their humans at home almost all day, every day, so our hope is to find someone that would be able to continue that lifestyle while we're away. However, we understand that people do go out and do things, just like we do! You’re not a prisoner in our home. Please enjoy the Austin and Round Rock area - there’s a lot to see! All we ask is that if you leave the house, please try to keep the dogs as close to their routine as possible....
We travel quite a bit, often a week at a time, so we may ask that you check the mail or water the plants 1-2 times during your stay. + More info
