Hello and welcome to On Paws Professional Pet Services! We are so glad you took the time to visit us for your pet care needs.
My name is Stephanie and I am the owner of On Paws Professional Pet Services. I live in San Marcos, TX with my husband, 2 daughters and 3 wonderful pets. My background is in theatre. I have a BA in theatre arts and I worked in accounting and purchasing for many years prior to starting On Paws. Animals have always been a passion of mine and I used to pet sit for friends and coworkers before becoming a professional
After becoming a stay at home mom in 2015 I decided to follow a dream I'd had for several years, starting a professional pet care business, and thus On Paws Professional Pet Services was born.
I simply love animals and my pets have always been a part of my family. Since childhood I've had several pets of my own and currently have 2 dogs and a cat. Our dog's names are Pepper and Gypsy and our cat is Tigger.
On Paws is a local, family owned and operated and family oriented business. My husband, daughters and I make what we do at On Paws possible. On Paws has grown into so much more than a way for me to earn extra money while caring for my daughter and I'm so grateful for that.
Though we try our best to not bring our daughters with us on pet sitting visits we may still have to bring them occasionally depending on how busy the schedule is and if we can't arrange other care. Our older daughter is in kindergarten so only our younger daughter may need to come with us. Our older daughter was the whole reason the business was started and our children will always be a part of it. They are covered under our insurance and have been around animals their entire lives. We have taught them how to treat animals with love and respect and while on visits they will never leave our side. Thank you for your understanding!
Jon is Stephanie's husband and he has recently joined the On Paws team full time. He has always helped with doggy daycare and boarding and occasionally with pet sitting when necessary and is now very excited to be a full time member of the team and to be caring for your fur babies! Jon's background is mainly in culinary but he loves all animals and is excited about this new opportunity. Here he is with our kitty Tigger, who is Jon's best buddy.
Susan has been with us for a few years now and during that time she mostly focused on midday dog walking and helping with pet sitting occasionally. Now Susan will mostly serve as backup when needed and when available and will help with coverage when Jon & Stephanie take time off.
Susan is also a dog trainer with many years experience handling dogs. If you are interested in her services you can visit her website below for more info.
Jennifer is a student at Texas State University studying agriculture. She's been working with animals her entire life raising goats and volunteering with dog rescues and has a passion for animals. Jennifer will be helping us mostly with midday dog walking and potty breaks for dogs and may help occasionally with pet sitting.
Alexis will be helping with weekend and evening pet sitting during the week. Alexis is a recent college graduate and recently engaged. She loves to have fun and make friends, animal and human alike!
