I would recommend Carol for any pet-sitting need. For me is was actually house-sitting with a focus on my animals. Keeping my pets at home while I am away is far better than any other option. I have not found anyone prior to Carol that worked for me. Most others, though good with the animals, only spend the evening hours at your home and the pets are by themselves thru-out the day. Carol actually uses ...

Carol was there for me last minute and really saved me when my non Rover sitter cancelled on me. This is my first time using Rover and I am a complete fan of the app and of Carol. She is great!

Laurie was great, she took care of our 2 senior dogs and gave them their medications as one of them has heart problems. We would definitely be using her services in the future

Your Dog Will be Safe and Happy

Hello, I’m Carol. I don't remember a time in my life when there wasn't a pet in the house. I was raised in a home that valued pets as part of the family, not just "the dog". They are so loving and have always brought a sense of comfort to me. Working with pups is as natural to me as being at home. Being a pet sitter just makes sense for my life.

What Carol would like to know about your dog

During our initial meeting, I will ask you to fill out a form with your veterinarian's name, any health conditions, allergies, and medications as well as an emergency contact in the event I am unable to get in touch with you.

I have no breed preferences and am comfortable with pups of any size. I'd like to know if your dog has any unique behaviors and what their temperament is like around strange people and other animals. I like to know as much as possible so that I can provide the best care for your pet.

When Carol watches your pet

I prefer to meet a dog in their most comfortable environment and encourage them connect at their own pace. I believe in being respectful of each individual pet’s boundaries. I pay close attention to a pup’s body language as well as my own; it is very obvious if a dog is uncomfortable. I believe that it’s important to allow animals to take the lead and connect in their own time.

There are a lot of great places to walk and run in my area. I particularly like taking dogs to the trails that have been recently renovated near my home.

I would only leave my fur baby with someone I believed would care for them the way I do. I can identify with the anxiety most people feel about choosing a pet sitter and work to instill a sense of trust with my human and canine clients. I will always follow the instructions of my clients because pet owners are the experts about their dogs’ unique care.
