Colleen was FANTASTIC! She was so passionate about animals and it showed from the second I met her at the meet and greet. Oakley loved her and warmed right up with no issues. She kept me up to date on everything that happened during the stay and made me feel so assured. Will absolutely use her again!

Fun, Caring, Dependable&Experienced

Hello! My name is Colleen and ever since a young age I have always had a love for dogs! I grew up with a cocker spaniel and currently have a sweet 2 year old dog I rescued.

Starting at the age of 10 I actively pet-sat neighbors dogs and cats, offering to take dogs on long walks and never wanting to leave them alone. When I turned 18, I began working at Banfield Pet Hospital ...

What Colleen would like to know about your dog

In order to assure you the best possible care for your dog, I'd love to know nay fears or allergies they may have. This will help me be able to best prevent them from harm or unnecessary anxiety, including if they do not do well with other pets or if they have a tendency to bite or attack. I also would love to know about their personality and things they love so I can make the time you're away fun and relaxing for them! I am open to all breeds and all ages and sizes :)

When Colleen watches your pet

Just as each pet is different, I understand all pets like to do different things. This is why I don't like to stick to one or two activities but prefer to adjust it based on the dogs preferences! Some of my specialities include long walks and tug-of-war but am always down for a good belly rub. With some pets, they prefer familiarity so I would try and take them on walks in places they've been before so they feel safe, preventing high levels of anxiety. But if they're as adventurous as me, I would be willing to take them to fun new parks and places (depending on pet and owner preferences, of course). Additionally, any dog staying with me for doggy day care will experience the fun and new dog park located in my apartment complex with regular bathroom breaks.
