Responsible & A True Animal Lover

Hello and Welcome to Rover. My name is Athena and I'm a professional dog walker and pet sitter. Not only am I an animal lover, but I'm insured and bonded and schooled in pet first aid and CPR. I'm also the mom of three kitties -- one very vocal Siamese, one very quiet Siamese, and one gray kitty that was (and is) a delightful foster "failure". In my spare time, I walk and socialize dogs at ...

- gather detailed information about the care of your pets and your home
- review my services
- confirm the dates of service and how often I will be visiting your home
- exchange phone numbers and contact information
- pick up a copy of your house key
- sign our care agreement

Special Needs Dog Experience

I'm at ease with small, medium, or large dogs and cats and I'm comfortable giving medications, orally, and administering subcutaneous fluids. I'm also an Oregon Dog Rescue donor/volunteer and donate 3% of all my proceeds to the Oregon Humane Society.


Drop-in Visits (30 Minutes) include:

- love, cuddles, tummy rubs, and attention
- administering food and water; washing pet dishes
- interactive play/exercise or walking
- cleaning litter boxes or puppy pads
- cleaning up messes
- light grooming
- administering medications, vitamins, or supplements
- retrieving your mail, bringing in the newspaper
- watering plants
- opening and closing blinds and adjusting lights (so your house looks lived in)
- taking out trash

Drop-In Visits (60 Minutes) include basic services, PLUS:

- more time for love, cuddles, tummy rubs, and attention
- more time for interactive play/exercise or walking

All drop-in visits and walks include updates and photos of the outing/visit so you never have to wonder how your pet is doing.


My rates are $15/per 30-minute visit, $30/per 60-minute visit. I do not charge for additional pets; however, I recommend at least an hour for 3 or more pets to ensure there is time to give each pet the love and attention they deserve.

There is an additional $5 charge for drop-in visits and dog walks on the following holidays: Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day, Christmas, New Year's Eve Day, and New Year's Day.


Please message me upon returning home from your trip. Should you be delayed and not able to reach me, I will continue to care for your pet(s) until you return home.


Regardless of what we schedule, I will stay for as long as it takes to make sure your pet is happy, secure, and comfortable.

For safety reasons, I walk a maximum of two dogs at a time.

Have a special request? Just let me know in the notes of your booking request.
