We are pet people too and pamper our four-legged family members.
Your pets deserve no less!
We are dedicated to empathetic, caring, loving, fear-free, and respectful care.
I grew up with cats and dogs.
My first cat and I were best friends! He would jump up on the fence and meow for me to come over to him. I would stand next to the fence and tap my shoulder. He would carefully take a step down onto my shoulder and stayed perched there as we walked around. What a wonderful, trusting relationship!
Throughout middle, high school, and college, I would pet sit in our neighborhood. My neighborhood customers stayed with me for about a decade. Post-college, friends referred me to pet sit and dog walk. People recognized my love and commitment to their pets.
I’ve worked in training my dog with gentle obedience training and received Canine Good Citizen certification. I’ve also volunteered with Canine Good Citizen trainers to gain deeper knowledge in gentle obedience practices. I’m also a certified Fear Free ® Pet Sitter. I use evidence-based techniques to care for pets who experience stress, fear, and anxiety. With a deep commitment to empathetic and fear-free techniques, I provide your pets with the extra support they need to feel comfortable with non-family members. I’m also studying animal behavior coursework through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants to always be learning and applying this knowledge.
With over twenty years of pet sitting, dog walking, I established Awwdorable Pets in 2015. Since then, Awwdorable Pets has focused on providing pets a loving and caring experience with each and every visit.
I enjoy meeting pets and pet people from all walks of life!
I’d love to meet you and your pets!

My Pet Family from over the years!
Queen Maxine is the sweetheart of the house. We moved into a new neighborhood and we noticed a grey tabby hanging around the yard. We learned that she had been abandoned by a previous owner at a nearby house. We noticed her peering into the windows cautiously to see who moved into her terrain! Slowly, over time, we gained her confidence and trust. We adopted her into the family! She is vigilant of the comings and goings of the rest of the household. A beautiful soul!
Leo. Bello Leo, Leonardo di Voce. Leo was the sweet, gentle tiger of the group. He announced his arrival into our lives with a bellowing voice. He immediately made himself at home and the rest is history. He was smitten with Maxine. He was a Daddy’s child, following him around with the dog. The three were quite the trio. Sadly, Leo crossed the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago. He is very missed like Rhyme. Sadly, he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago, as has Rhyme.
Agosto Gusto aka Spruce Willis! Walking the dog one night, we heard a kitten’s cry from a neighbor’s driveway. We saw a tiny kitten by a parked car. He was so small that he fit in the palm of my hand. I nursed him back to health over months and today he is a feisty, lovable, and playful addition to the family. He loves following Reason around the house and learns life’s lessons from Maxine who will tell him when to simmer down.
Coltrane – A Love Supreme! A super handsome Australian Shepherd Rottweiler Corgi, Husky mix! He came to us via a Corridor Rescue Street team member who rescued him off the streets and cared for him. She realized that he would be a perfect addition for us and invited us to meet him…we fell in love! Our dear Coltrane is the sweetest dog ever! We are thankful everyday for his presence in our lives – he brings us so much joy.
Begonia. Begonia was a field Labrador retriever that I rescued off the streets in Houston. After searching to see if she had an owner, and checking for a microchip, I, happily, was a foster failure pawrent, and she was adopted into our family! She was affectionate, playful, and loved everyone in the house. She immediately became friends will the cats and of course, Coltrane. Although her life was cut short due to cancer, she will always be remembered and cherished.
