About Us

Welcome to Stayin’ Home Pet Care! 

At Stayin’ Home Pet Care, our passion is pets! Established in 2009, our team first served the south Austin community before expanding to the greater Austin area, reaching from San Marcos across to Dripping Springs, and all the way up to Georgetown. Our mission is to give you the peace of mind that your pet is cared for like a member of our own family while you’re away from home. We offer both pet sitting (including dog and cat care), as well as dog walking services.

Our team of sitters and walkers takes our role seriously and we strongly believe in delivering personalized, compassionate, and professional services so that you may never be left without care for your pet.

About Karla Bauman, Founder, Stayin’ Home Pet Care

Our owner, Karla Bauman, first discovered her love of pets while growing up on a farm in Iowa, helping her dad raise cattle and pigs. Early on, Karla’s family and friends noticed how she developed an uncanny trust with the farm’s herding dogs and mouser cats. When she became an adult, Karla’s first dog was a rescue that she had for over 12 years. After she passed away, Karla continued to welcome rescue dogs into her home, which is when she began to realize her love of caring for animals in need. Years later, she left her customer service job and started a business that focused on working with both people and their pets. Stayin’ Home Pet Care is the embodiment of Karla’s mission to use her natural ability to put both animals and their owners at ease when they are apart from each other. And for over 11 years, she and her team have offered their exceptional services to the Austin community of pet families.

A HUGE RELIEF - Stayin’ Home Pet Care has been pet sitting for my two dogs and two cats for the past year. They are great! It’s nice to have someone close by who can be at my house within a matter of minutes if needed. I have an older cat that is on daily medication and the sitter is able to handle her, which is a huge relief to me when I’m out of town. And, of course my dogs love their evening dog walks with her. I would highly recommend Karla and her staff at Stayin’ Home Pet Care. I get daily updates when I’m away, so I never have a worry about what’s happening when I’m gone. I have total confidence that my ‘kids’ are being well cared for.
