Charissa and Kendall took wonderful care of our two dogs and bird while we were out of the country. She gave great daily updates and cute pictures of the pups and everything was perfect when we returned. We couldn't be happier!

Charissa was great! We felt comfortable with her immediately! Our dogs loved her. She text us pictures and communicated with us everyday. We will definitely use her next time we go out of town!!

Super Science Sitter

About this sitter:
I spent almost 10 years as a zookeeper working with anything from lions and tigers to meerkats and kangaroos. I have also had many furry friends of my own. I grew up on a farm, was in 4-H, and raised rabbits, dairy feeders, and steers. I now live in an apartment that has a grassy area for dogs to play in and enjoy. I am also very close to two bike trails ...

What Charissa would like to know about your dog

I would love to know the ins and outs of your dog. Toys that they love, are they afraid of anything, where they like to sleep, when they eat, anything that would help me make their time away from you easier. I will take care of any breed of dog.

Time I'll spend with your dog
