My wife and I utilize Sporty Dog for 2X daily visits when I am traveling for work. We love Emma, Loren & Zoeys attentiveness when they visit and seeing photos of our happy dog (simba -Shiba Inu) during their visits. We recently moved to Austin and Sporty Dog was able to assist in both South & Central Austin. Enjoy the ease of utilizing the mobile app for scheduling and communicating with their team. Would recommend their services to anyone in the greater Austin area.

Everyone at The Sporty Dog has been an absolute lifesaver for my two very energetic huskies and I! Without plenty of exercise and attention, my dogs can be a bit destructive at home. Since working with our friends at The Sporty Dog, I feel confident that I can leave them home alone while working long shifts. They have somehow even managed to make a friend out of my youngest dog who is highly anxious around strangers. They have been so flexible and accommodating to my wildly inconsistent schedule. Highly highly recommend!

I recently got married in Austin and needed a pet sitter to bring him to the wedding and watch him, before taking him back to his boarding facility. I'm so glad I found The Sporty Dog! They met with me beforehand at my hotel to meet my dog which gave me comfort that I was in good hands. On the wedding day, they were very professional and sent pictures throughout the day to keep us informed on how he was doing!

I was in town for work and needed a trustworthy dog walker for my 10 month old Shih tzu while I was at work and Lauren and Kendall were absolutely incredible. I was of course nervous to leave my dog with someone since I was not a local, but Lauren made me feel reassured and very comfortable! My dog had a great time and I truly felt so at ease knowing my pup was in good hands! I got updates after each walk with pictures and a GPS of the route they walked and would highly recommend their service! We'll certainly be using them again next time we're in town! =)

Lauren and her team at The Sporty Dog are fantastic. If you're looking for someone to love on your pup as much as you do, look no further! Can't recommend her services enough.

Lauren rules! My dog is very wary of new people at first but has come to quickly love walks with Lauren

Lauren is absolutely wonderful with our dogs. We get a daily message with cute photos during their midday walk and it always makes my day. Super professional and super friendly! ????

Lauren and the Sporty Dog company have been absolutely amazing to work with for my two dogs. She’s on time and takes dog pictures that you will want to frame later. Her service has been a life saver! Thanks so much. Our pups are so happy!!

Lauren and her team are so wonderful! We had 2 visits/walks scheduled for our 15 year old senior man and they were great with him. He gets a little grumpy and/or protective with strangers and they handled it with grace and kept in communication with my me and my wife. They even sent photos which I always think is a nice touch. I highly recommend them!

Lauren and The Sporty Dog have been a TOTAL life saver on more than one occasion! She is incredibly flexible and always willing to jump in when I need help. I love seeing how happy my dog Lola looks when Lauren sends snaps from their walks! Highly recommended to anyone needing that peace of mind when they are away.

The Sporty Dog has been a life saver! I work 10 hour shifts, and knew that keeping my dog cooped up for that long wasn’t ideal. I‘m so glad I happened upon Lauren and her team. They are truly professionals who care for your pets as their own! Every day I get a detailed report about how my pup did on the walk with a checklist and photos. I have piece of mind, and know that my dog is in great hands while I’m at work. I highly recommend The Sporty Dog’s services- you won’t be disappointed!

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 third dog, a scaredy-cat dachshund, he immediately took to her. …

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 occassions. Highly recommend her to anyone in Austin!

Lauren has been great with helping me take care of my 6 year old golden retriever, Callie! She's always able to come walk her when I have long work days and she's extremely reliable. I would recommend her to anyone!

I can't say enough good things about Lauren & The Sporty Dog. It gives me such 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 alot! She's professional, prompt and the dogs LOVE her!
