Zero loves Colleen!
She watched him in my home for 10 days. She was constantly checking in and sending me updates and photos and took great care of my apartment. I would highly recommend Colleen!

I've known Colleen now for 10 years now and I learned quite quickly that she is a dog lover. Every time we take a walk on the green belt or town lake, she is always stopping to pet someone's dog. She has a dog of her own that she absolutely loves and takes her everywhere. She is always posting pictures of her and her dog. I know she will be a great caregiver of other ...

Trustworthy Dog's Best Friend

Hi there! My name is Colleen, and I'm so excited to be a part of Rover Services. A little bit about me: I've been in Austin for ten years, so I know the city fairly well.

Dogs have been a huge part of my life since I got my first puppy (when I was 5 years old). Although I grew up around large dogs, I love pups of all sizes and breeds! During grad school ...

What Colleen would like to know about your dog

I love to get a thorough knowledge of every dog before I sit with them. Here are some examples of some basic information I'd like to know:

What is their feeding schedule and how much food should they receive?

What is their walking/exercise schedule?

Do they have any medical conditions I should be aware of? Any medications I need to give them?

What are some of their favorite activities? Do they have a favorite toy?

Are they allowed any treats? If so, what kind and how many are they allowed?

Is there anything your dog is afraid of (e.g. thunderstorms)? If yes, what does your dog find most soothing?

How do your dog do when it encounters other dogs/cats/children while on walks?

How often would you like me to contact you? Would you like me to send photos or videos of your dog?

In the unlikely event of an emergency, who is your vet?

When Colleen watches your pet

I understand every dog is different! I'm a naturally active person, so I love going on runs and taking walks...if you have an active dog, I'll make sure they get plenty of activity.

However, I also know not every dog likes that lifestyle. My own sweet Boston terrier, Dixie, is a more low-key dog. Her idea of good evening is snuggling up and getting lots of pets while I read a book.
