About Me

I’m Carissa, founder of Peace Love and Pups®, artist, and proud mother of a French and an English Bulldog. I am passionate about many things in life including art and music, but nothing has ever changed my life in the way that my love for animals has. A day without dogs doesn’t exist in my life, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. There’s no better feeling than opening a door to a tail wagging, happy pup, excited to see me and join me on an adventure outdoors.

I have been walking dogs in Austin for six years, and have been called Austin’s “Fairy Dog Mother” by clients. Our pets are our family, and although our lives get busy, they deserve all the time and attention we can give them. I hope to be the person you choose to spend time with your dog(s) when you can’t be there.

I care for all breeds from Great Danes to Chihuahuas. I’m certified in pet CPR and first aid. I have experience caring for dogs that suffer from seizures, as well as those recovering from minor and major surgeries. I am able to administer any medications that your dog(s) needs, clean wounds, change and reapply bandages, etc. Rest assured that a dog requiring medical attention is in the hands of a trained professional. Peace Love and Pups is bonded and insured.
