Sporty Dog is a lifesaver! My fiance and I had to leave town unexpectedly for a funeral and were faced with finding affordable and reliable care for our dog, Ellie, at the last minute. We had never left Ellie alone before and were extremely anxious about doing so. As a rescue, Ellie has the usual package of heightened separation anxiety and trust issues and we were concerned that she wouldn't let someone unfamiliar through the door. Enter Lauren at the Sporty Dog. Both Ellie and I were comfortable with her from the get go. She was very professional and covered all the bases with me before I left. During the trip, she was very communicative and sent photo updates. All in all, Ellie and I are big fans! - Katy R
LAUREN IS AN OUTSTANDING DOG WALKER! MY DOG LUCY ADORES HER. SHE IS PROFESSIONAL AND ACCOMMODATING. I WOULDN'T HESITATE TO RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE. - DAVE F.

My dogs love Ms. Lauren. I have a dog that doesn't trust a lot of people and when she sees Lauren she's all smiles. Lauren has been such a great help to us, very reliable, sweet, and caring, even at last minute she will be there for you. She's just awesome!! - SS
Lauren and The Sporty Dog have been perfect for us! Our dog is always happy and tired when we come home. Lauren is incredibly reliable and so great about being flexible with my schedule. Highly recommend austin dog walking The Sporty Dog! - Chrissy T.
Lauren has watched our dogs for quite a while now. She is great with them, and she is always available. We've had several occasions where we called last minute, and she has accommodated us every time. She's also watched our house and the dogs over longer periods of time. Her prices are good, and she's dependable. And she always sends a picture of the dogs when she takes them out for a walk. - Lance S.
Lauren was very responsive and my dog, Raja loves her! It gave me peace of mind knowing Lauren was looking after Raja while I was out of town. I can tell she has a special connection with animals and genuinely cares about their wellbeing. I highly recommend The Sporty Dog for those who truly care about their pets. -Lucas B.
I can't say enough good things about Lauren and The Sporty Dog for austin pet sitting. It gives me such a peace of mind to know that whenever I'm out of town my 2 dogs are being well taken care of. I'm a bit of an over-protective pet parent, so the fact that I'm so at ease leaving them in Lauren's hands says a lot! She's professional, prompt and the dogs LOVE her! - Tony F.
Lauren is Fantastic! She is always super professional, extremely caring with our golden retriever (since he was a puppy), accommodating with our crazy schedules and has been a saving grace to stay overnight to look after our dog on countless occasions. Highly recommend her to anyone in Austin! - Jason H.
I am so happy that I found Lauren to take care of my dog for a recent vacation.. From our initial meeting I was very comfortable with her and the interaction that she had with my pup.. I could tell that she really loved animals and as a result, did a great job.. Over the course of the next week she spent hours interacting with my pet and tending to his specific needs.. I will use her in the future and would recommend her anyone I know who needs her services...-John T.
The Sporty Dog has pampered our two dogs on two occasions. We were one hundred percent satisfied on both occasions and I believe the dogs were also. Having a trust worthy sitter for our pets is load off our mind when we travel. She turns on lights, stacks the mail and loves the dogs. We highly recommend The Sporty Dog. - Bill & Dolly W.
I used to worry every single time I was going to be late getting home...or if I needed to be away for a day or two. Now I know my baby will be in the best hands possible. I doubt I could ever find someone more responsible to take care of her. And my pooch loves her! The Sporty Dog, is the best of the best. - Scott
THANK YOU!! I can’t tell you enough how happy, satisfied, and thankful the Harrell Family is for your loving care!!! Very Happy! - Amber J.
Thank You so very much for caring for Sancho & Lolita. The extra love and affection you gave them over the past three weeks was so obvious when I walked into the house. They were both at the door to greet me. With you caring for them, I don't think they missed me. The special care you gave Sancho was wonderful. He looks and feels so very much better now and is back to his old self thanks to you! - R. Reynolds
Oliver is our "elderly" cat who believes we retired to spend more time with him. The Sporty Dog is the pet sitter of Ollie's dreams as well as ours. He is a happy little camper having them care for him. Upon returning from our last trip they stopped by a few days latter. When Oliver heard her voice he came running out of the bedroom (where he was napping) and went straight to her. Amazing. They are great with animals, took care of the newspaper, watered the plants, and brought in the mail. In short, we are totally covered. And that's very nice. - Susan and Robert
LOVE Lauren and my dogs love her too! She is very flexible with my crazy schedule and always available when I need her to walk my dogs, Skye and Marley. Absolutely would recommend! - Mikenley H.
Lauren is THE BEST...hands down, no question. My pets LOVE her. I can always tell how they were treated by how they act when I come home. - Brandi P.
You can trust Lauren with your furbabies. When we first moved to Austin two years ago, we had two senior dogs and she has always taken great care of them. When we added a scaredy-cat dachshund, he immediately took to her. Lauren takes the pups for nice long walks, gives good advice when we are having issues with them, and has always been able to dog-sit when we need to be out out of town. Highly Recommend Lauren and her Company! - Sophie, Sedona, Bubby, Tito, Melanie, & Rob P.
