Gusto Dogs!

Gusto Dogs provides a professional dog walking and pet sitting service in Steiner Ranch, Apache Shores, Hudson Bend, Four Points and downtown Austin, Texas. We believe a dog walk should be more than just a walk, so our dog walkers also incorporate stimulating enrichment games into each visit, customized to your dog's individual needs.

Doc has a lot of energy and needed an outlet during the day while his owners work. Doc loves his walks and as a reward at the end, he got to play his favorite game of fetch - but he had to sit, first!

About Kristen West

Kristen started Gusto Dogs in Austin after running a pet sitting and walking business for two years in Sydney, Australia. After discovering that the dogs benefited much more from incorporating enrichment into their daily walks, Kristen decided to make it a part of every Gusto dog walk with the aim to provide a more fulfilling experience for Austin's dogs and their owners.
