About Us

Our work life and volunteering has kept us on the go for many years, living and working in Africa, Asia and from coast-to-coast in the USA including Miami and Boston. We promised ourselves during all the moves and globetrotting that someday we would find the perfect place to live, find the perfect dog, and enjoy daily walks together.
We found the perfect city, Austin, and decided to enjoy the companionship of many dogs and formed PAWSTIN as our avocation and a labor of love. Our dog walking company fills our days with healthy activities around downtown Austin, the dogs love it, and their families return home at the end of the day to their happy canine companions.

Our background:

Pawstin-Dog-WalkersBrian is from Boston, joined the US Marines after high school, earned a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts, and retired from a 25 year career in the insurance business in 2013 to form Pawstin.
Dominique is from Cape Town, South Africa and was well into a career in financial services marketing when she met Brian on a Habitat for Humanity home building project in Zambia. They discovered a shared passion for adventure and service on that trip and together with friends from Missouri formed a non profit called Be the Change Volunteers building schools in developing countries.
We have always been dog lovers and looked forward to the day when we could again devote our time and attention towards quality time with dogs. We want those dogs to be your dogs, joining us on PAWSTIN walks.
