Welcome, I’m Mark Carter, I am the owner of This Lil’ Dog of Mine Pet Services. Ever since I was younger I have always had a passion for animals. I was the kid that would always bring home stray animals, weird critters and always begging my mother to go to the pet store and zoo to see all the animals. As I got older my passion and interest in animals grew. I attended vet summer camps and even joined FFA. After high school I had my heart set on attending vet school in the future. While attending Prairie View A&m University I attended an internship at Iowa State University, there I was introduced to other opportunities available in animal science other than just being a vet. After that internship I worked on multiple research projects under some great professors. After graduating from Prairie View A&M University and receiving a bachelors in Animal Science, I decided to continue my education at Texas A&M University were I received a Master of Science in Applied Ethology with a focus in animal behavior and well-being. After graduating and entering the work field, I quickly realized I wanted to use my experience and education in a different way. I wanted to provide a service to people that they would feel great about using. Since opening This Lil Dog of Mine Pet Services, I gained so much experience and currently hold a CPR certification through Austin Pet First Aid. I’m always working toward making This Lil Dog of Mine Pet Services, better for my clients and their pets.
Hi, I’m Issac, native Houstonian but currently growing to love Austin. I love animals, my family has always had pets and I’ve always loved caring for them. I love the companionship cats and dogs provide. It’s just something neat about watching and learning how dogs and cats interact with you. I currently do not have any pets, but still consider my family’s dog my own. I wanted to join This Lil Dog of Mine for just that reason, I enjoy pets.
Hi my name is Joseph Barr, from North Carolina, but currently laying my roots here in beautiful Austin. Growing up my family loved pets, from dogs, birds and fish. We had it all. I currently have a 3 year old Siberian Husky who is full of life and keeps me on my toes. Over the years I’ve done volunteer work for various animal shelters and occasional pet sitting jobs for local neighbors. There’s nothing like the bond between pets and their owners. I love my dogs big and full of life and definitely have the show the little guys love too.

While I have been pet sitting for families since 2012, I began working professionally in animal welfare in 2015 for the Humane Society of North Texas as an adoption counselor and was later promoted to Humane Investigations. My time in the cruelty department allowed me to work with animals of variety, ranging from equine and livestock to hybrid wolves. I have experience in rehabilitating neglected, fearful, and ill animals that have expanded my knowledge on animal behavior and health. I have since moved to Austin, where I work full time as a Pet Resource Specialist for Austin Animal Center, educating the community on pet ownership and assisting families in keeping their pets.
Hello my name is Justin Ervin, but people call me JT. I’m originally from San Angelo, TX but I mainly grew up in Austin. I currently have three dogs: Shade is a pit bull, Bosco is a Border Collie mix, and Rico is a Doberman. I’ve also volunteered at the Austin Human Society as well. Being around different animals has made my bond more passionate and stronger.
This Lil Dog of Mine Pet Services was inspired by Mark’s four year old rescue, Ore. Like some owners, Mark’s work schedule required him to be away from home most of the day. Because of this, he often found it hard to coordinate a time to make appointments for Ore. This left Mark with an unsettling feeling and it was then he realized that others must be stuck with that same dilemma. Soon after, This Lil Dog of Mine Pet Services was born. Mark’s vision was to provide quality pet services for the working individuals’ pets and alleviate their feelings of worry.
